    Re: Prof's 53-man All-Time Bulldogs

    That's what makes some of this stuff so difficult when you start comparing stats from different eras. For example, take the Moats vs. Dixon debate. Who was the better RB? Dixon had a better four-year...

    Re: Prof's 53-man All-Time Bulldogs

    Look, I didn't see either of these guys play so I'm missing the eye test. But Mackey's junior and senior seasons were better than any year that Slaughter had. Don't get me wrong. Slaughter was great....

    Re: Prof's 53-man All-Time Bulldogs

    I went with more of an NFL philosphy in terms of personnel. A lot of 11 personnel, more 10 personnel than 12 or 21. But we would have plays with a FB, two TEs and a goal-line package.

    Re: Prof's 53-man All-Time Bulldogs

    Definitely could have made the team in place of Joe Smith or Dennis Morris. I'd have no problem with that. I went with big RB and H-back over a traditional FB.

    Re: Prof's 53-man All-Time Bulldogs

    Stats can be misleading, and in this case, a lack of stats can be misleading. I was admitting that I probably bungled this one, and part of that issue was a lack of information about Anderson's...

    Re: Prof's 53-man All-Time Bulldogs

    The only year that Sports Reference has stats for Larry Anderson (1977), he had five interceptions and four return TDs. He's one of six players in Tech history with a 100-yard kickoff return, and he...

    Re: Prof's 53-man All-Time Bulldogs

    It was a different game back then, but Brown scored 12 touchdowns (9 receiving, 1 rushing, 1 kickoff return, 1 punt return) during his two years at Tech. Griffin Hebert had half that many this past...

    Re: Prof's 53-man All-Time Bulldogs

    You're right. All of these guys were before my time, so I don't have the eye test to rely on. I was just looking at production and trying to compare their status in Tech lore over different eras.

    Re: Prof's 53-man All-Time Bulldogs

    Quick 6 was great, and you could easily make an argument for him over Joe Smith. Since I was trying to build a roster and not just name the best players, I needed a big back who could play in...

    Re: Prof's 53-man All-Time Bulldogs

    I spent about six hours in the media guide researching and writing. I considered a whole bunch of guys, but when whittling it down to 53, some difficult decisions have to be made. I think everybody...

    Re: Prof's 53-man All-Time Bulldogs

    I considered Robinson. It's hard when comparing eras. He was a 260-pound nose tackle. Smith and Jelly were absolute forces. Jelly is my backup at nose, and in a 3-4 I needed someone with his size....

    Smith was my last cut at DB. I didn't know his back story as he was before my time, but I certainly think he could replace either Causey or Doyle.

    Prof's 53-man All-Time Bulldogs

    Just as I did yesterday with building an all-time Tech basketball roster, I spent today building a 53-man football roster. I elected against an 85-man roster because of redshirts and transfers, etc....

    Prof's All-Time Tech Roster

    I needed to occupy my mind today, so I went down a rabbit hole researching the best players in Dunkin Dawgs' history. I came up with my all-time roster. It includes 13 players because NCAA rosters...

    No. GIA is non-binding, so the student-athlete is still considered a recruitable athlete.

    Re: QB flips to Tech from Harvard

    Holstein is one of the best that I've ever seen in person. Two summers ago, we went down to STM for a 7-on-7 tournament. I got to stand on the field just a few yards away from Holstein as he was...
  17. Re: How long does it take to hire a defensive coordinator?

    So you're saying the consensus of this board was that we'd win 10 games and finish second in the division? I'd love to see the evidence to back that up. That's not the mood I remember from the...
  18. Re: How long does it take to hire a defensive coordinator?

    I'm saying in the moment before the suspension we had a chance for a truly historic season, and the suspension cost us that. But if you told any of us at the beginning of the season that we'd win 10...
  19. Re: How long does it take to hire a defensive coordinator?

    Did anyone on this board pick us to win 10 games before the season? We had a senior QB returning that none of us had much faith in and a new defensive coordinator who didn't inspire much confidence....
  20. Re: How long does it take to hire a defensive coordinator?

    I think recruiting is a big part of this issue. Whoever we hire is out recruiting for his current job, most likely. It's one of the things that I don't like about college football. We probably won't...

    Re: Louisiana Community Christian

    "Too many colleges." We literally don't have a single 2-year college in the state that plays football. Not one. So I'd say we have too few in that area. This isn't a new FBS or FCS university. It's a...

    I'm not sure we could afford this guy (he made $300K this past year), but it might be worth a shot.
  24. Re: La Tech OC Todd Fitch Leaving for Vanderbilt?

    He wanted an opportunity when Skip was originally hired. He didn't get it. I wouldn't say he had any hard feelings. They had no previous connection, and apparently Skip didn't think he had done...

    I get being disappointed when we lose a great player. It's understandable. But in Amik's case, he never hid the fact that this was his plan. It's the reason he came to Tech. He turned down a...
