    Can tell you he is a notorious bag man in recruiting, was kiffin's ace when he went to Tenn and hired that all star recruiting staff

    I liked him a lot. Great recruiter and our RBs performed very well. He didn't call any plays, so I don't know about that.

    True confession: I had no idea Gran was a white dude with a goatee until I saw him on TV this season.

    I forgot who the dude was completely until just now, he was like the most coveted RB coach in the game a few years back.

    Little bit of a gamble maybe, but he's at the very least a great recruiter and RB coach.

    Yeah I just remember always seeing his name as recruiter of record on rivals for all the beast recruits at places like Auburn, UT, and FSU. The image did not compute with everything I had heard about him.

    Was he the oc while at FSU? It's listed as that on his bio but iirc Jimbo called the plays.

    Kiffin's Tennessee staff was an og collection of bagmen

    He was not even fake OC at FSU. Just RB coach. I’d rather him come in as OC than promote Coley though and gran can land south Florida kids just like Coley. I wonder if Coley ends up back at Miami now. I can’t see him accepting Gran as his boss. Coley was the fake OC at FSU Under jimbo when Gran was still on staff.

    Kirby is Rusty’s biggest source, of course he told Rusty to tell the masses he was never offered the job.

    Yea Im sure Kirby needed Rusty (in addition to The Athletic, The AJC, and every other bumpkin outlet) to explain to the masses that he did not offer his OC gig less than 24 hours after it opened

    You’re naive if you don’t think coaches care about the message that is being pushed on the team’s biggest board where thousands of fans hang out. Do you know how sources work? This isn’t unique to Georgia.

    I mean I see Piperdog slurping Strelow's teet everyday, so Ive got a good feel for message board communities.

    Idk why you think Rusty has a tight relationship with Kirby. Its Bobo, which could be your confusion.

    Rusty was not the first outlet to report the shenanigans with the Gran rumor. First UGASports Rivals, then our Athletic.com Beat Writer shot it down.

    No doubt the staffs of every program talk to the site mods of these fan sites in a quid pro quo. But thats not whats happened here. Or at least you have yet to outline it. There was no rallying the fanbase behind an otherwise lethargic name, drumming up interest in a recruit, or spinning the loss of a commitment. Etc. The job literally opened up yesterday. Do you not know how Agency works?

    I agree with you in this instance but the Florida mods believe rusty gets a lot of info from Kirby because I guess that’s what Rusty claims. IDK their relationship or even if there is one just what rusty tells people, even claims he’s vacationed with Kirby

    Yea Im talking about this instance, not refuting that Staffs dont talk to Site Mods.

    And yea all the 2nd part is accurate. He fabricates it to a large extent. Claims to have been in Kirby's wedding party (not true) and is a running joke on our board from someone who would know. He is for sure boys with Bobo and confirmed that Bobo was offered by Pruitt.

    We are wondering the same. But hard to square that with our month-long DC search.

    Imo there is some holding pattern on the DC front until Saban decides on what moves he makes. The OC legit just happened. Im sure Kirby anticipated the OC (he didnt bother countering and let Chaney walk + there are lots of decent rumors about this being in the works) but its not like he could conduct interviews until now.

    He flew Rusty and his wife to Boston to go to a Luke Bryan concert and partied backstage.

    Rusty is/was always closer to Bobo.

    He called a halfback pass in the Sun Bowl during a blizzard down 6 points and 4 minutes left in the game. 5 games after Golden had been fired.


    Real talk time, Coley was really good on the first series of the game he had scripted. After that, the offense would drop off dramatically. He had legit NFL guys all over the field as an OC and was pretty underwhelming, especially in big games.

    If he can call plays like the first 15 or so, he is really good.

    Everyone can improve Lord knows our HC did as a DC after the fiasco in Texas. Only worrisome thing is Coley has basically been learning under a guy UGA let walk away because they didn't think he was worth fighting to keep. When FSU fans said dude spent years just game planning the offense for Jimbo it showed be the case. the fact that his offense was gang Buster's in the first qtr then went to shit after teams adjusted for the exploits he found during film study all week.

    Jedd Fisch was also there under Golden and somehow fooled everyone into thinking Stephen Morris was a competent QB. It wasn’t Golden’s fault that Coley sucked.
