    Finding a coach like Skip really is kind of ideal, they stabilize your program and will stick around a while, but some do wear out their welcome. Skip really has no where else to go, no one wants him. Unless we fire him (not gonna happen) or make him the AD, he is here until some big money says it is time for him to go.
    Skip does not stabilize your program, he destroys it. He is destroying us like he destroyed USF. The destruction has only been delayed because he got 2 5th year senior QB transfers. Holtz has to have a LOT more talent than the other team to win.

    I do think Skip stabalized our program some, he kept it from going into a free fall for three years, I will give him credit for that. I agree with you though on the players, he was always playing with someone Else's players, be it senior transfer, or Dykes players. This is the year you really grade Holtz on, these are ALL HIS players, and he has not done well and I think it only get's worse because apparently he is not recruiting well.
    Now I could be wrong on the recruiting part, maybe he is recruiting well and just ruining them after they get here.

    LOL. I would agree with you if Holtz just took over from Maxie Lambright. Have you watched any Tech games since 1978? This has been the most consistency (in a good way) that we have had in a LONG time.

    I donít believe our players (all of them collectively) have played well thus far this season. Iím not convinced Tech has enough good players to make a difference. I see Tech being outsized by almost every opponent. But I donít think any of that is the bottom line reason why Tech is losing. The clear reason why is the coaching decisions of Holtz.

    Things are different now than in the past. Today if you have at least a 6-6 record you are in a bowl. Rattay had 8 and 9 win teams that were better than any of Skip's teams and they didn't get a bowl. We hired son of a legendary coach Jack Bicknell who destroyed our football program and stayed too long because Dan Reneau thought that he was so cute. Plus back in those days guys just couldn't transfer anywhere when they graduated like Sokol and Driskel which gave Holt a bailout for 2 years. And our schedule is the weakest that it has ever been playing in CUSA.

    Re: The Lane Train

    Lane is the opposite of Holtz.

    He is going to win and win fast, but as others have said as soon as the championship is done he will be somewhere else. I’d be surprised if his agent hasn’t already fielded offers.

    Let’s face it. We have Holtz because our administration wanted consistency. That’s what they have. Consistency.

    He ain’t leaving. Ever.

    How is that an amateur fan can see it coming, but Baker and Holtz can't?

    That's just it, apparently we are all amateurs and do not know what the hell we are talking about.

    Kiffin set that up beautifully on the play before. I laughed because the first play got 2/3 yards, but that's what it was supposed to do.

    It was all about the next play and having the defense ignore the receivers.
