    Could Gus be a good CEO coach?

    One reason I like Aranda. He is one of the most well prepared coaches I've seen.

    Who would replace Malzahn (merged threads again)

    I had mentioned him a few years back, but just forgot to add him. There are a few things I like about him. He is aggressive, his offense is dynamic and successful, he adjust to his team/player strengths, and a very good QB developer. A good indicator for his potential is that when Saban was looking to replace Kiffen, he wanted and pursued Yurcich.

    I thought it was 75% of his contact with 15 mil due after 30 day. The rest to be paid over X number of years.

    We're gonna be paying 7 mill for 1 coach next year. We could easily get a HC and an good OC/DC, if not more, for that same expenditure. The argument of having to pay for another coach/staff is negated or at least minimized by the removal of Gus' yearly contract off the books.

    Who would replace Malzahn (merged threads again)

    I'd like to amend my list and add Mike Yurcich. He is another that fits the criteria I'm looking for in a coach.

    I think he'd be a great choice.

    Can we afford not to?

    I just don't understand how, in all seriousness, that they can objectively say after watching the last 4 years that Gus is the right coach to lead AU.

    The "proven winning coaches" aren't coming. Saban, Urban, Dabo, Smart, Jimbo, Riley, Gundy, Leach, Shaw, Franklin, and Harbough are at their preferred retirement jobs. There is nothing to entice any of them. Money won't trump what they all have or are building at their respective schools. That said, a lower tier HC or good coordinator could be. We offer great pay, we play in the most difficult division of the best conference... So they get to try and test themselves against the best, we are in the middle of some of the most elite recruiting areas, we are a top 10 historical program, we perennially have two or three of the best and biggest games of the year that routinely impacts the landscape of the college football season, and if successful, it's a long term job with loyal and passionate fans.

    Could Gus be a good CEO coach?

    I think he's been trying...
  14. @JMR, of the many to choose from, the one thing I saw that frustrated me the most was watching UGA mass substitute based on our personnel and us not taking advantage of it. I get that our O is so basic and predictable that the D knows what we're gonna run based on personnel. Every team we've played the last few years and my wife and kids seem to, so that's not new. What bothererd me is why(and to be fair I saw it once) didn't we use that to our advantage. Let them sub in their heavy package, and then shift to a 4 or 5 wide set and force the action or shift into a run against their dime package. Instead, we would see a wave of UGA players platooning on to the field and run exactly what they expected us to. Maddening. Oh yeah, add the decision to quit feeding Shivers the ball to my biggest gripes. The kid is electric and shows it every time he is in there. To me, he is clearly the best back on our roster that we have seen this year. He could be so dynamic/dangerous if we used him correctly just half of the time. Seriously, Could you imagine what he would do if we snuck him out of the backfield as a check down the way UGA did with Swift? Or ran stretch, OF counter, split zone, or Dart with him. His 30 yard run was even more impressive than it looked when you realize their unblocked LB had the perfect angle to blow it up for a 5 yard loss. Shivers speed allowed him to break the angle and explode up field. He had one run of 1 yard, two for about 6 yards each, and the 30 yarder, then...nothing. Really? How does that make a lick of sense?
