I will. they typically don't make moves like this during the season, though.
I don't know. I haven't corresponded with him since he received his release. I don't think he's coming back, though.
Mike Bobinski has made a number of hires, both coaches and internally. He has a vision for the department that makes sense to me, but it's going to take some time to see how the hires work out, obviously.
I have to put on an asbestos suit to read your takes, Daniel.
George O'Leary clearly knew how to hire a staff. But it also took Bill O'Brien several years to make it to the Texans. Two of Johnson's former assistants are Division I head coaches. Another (albeit one he inherited) is now FSU's defensive coordinator. It's a hard thing to suss out. Obviously, Al Groh did not work out, and Dave Wommack didn't either.
Media are allowed to request up to four coaches and players Monday and Tuesday. As long as players are not injured or are freshmen who have yet to play, they're available. I think players are excited about the game, but maybe a little chastened by what happened Saturday. that said, I've never gotten a vibe that read, "We're about to get steamrolled." they're typically pretty optimistic.
I think I wrote 15 or 20 percent. Most of the upper north end zone appeared to be Georgia Southern fans and a lot of the upper deck on the east was also.
I could probably make an educated guess, but it would take awhile. But if they gave up 250 yards of offense instead of 398, they'd be in the 40's, I think, in total defense. The missed tackles have got to stop, though.
I'm planning to be there. I went there last year when he spoke after the Pitt game, I believe. (He is speaking at the Touchdown Club of Atlanta's weekly luncheon, something he typically does every year. I don't know what it costs, but he usually talks a little and then answers questions. If you're interested, I'm sure there's information on the club's website)
I'll leave that one alone.
Interesting scenario. I don't foresee a beating, but I can see how it could happen. I expect Virginia Tech to come out smoking after losing at home. Plus, this is a bit of a level jump from the first three games.
While deferring to my "i'm not good at comparing teams across years" comment, I do think they're playing pretty well, particularly given that two of them had never played before this season. I think Shaquille Mason is playing particularly well. Saturday will be a crucible, though.
Thanks. I don't check their blog as often as I should, but they're good about including me in their links. It'll be tough, particularly if the defense doesn't get markedly better, but I think it's possible. Neither team looks unbeatable. I don't know it's going to happen, but it's possible.
Interesting. I'm not positive I agree. I think he liked the hand he was dealt last year when he had three experienced seniors. I think it was more than the guys he has this year are inexperienced and not many in number. you could be right, though.
No, none at all. I hope the story didn't imply that. I don't think Jusitn Thomas is a stats guy in that way.
What I wrote about yesterday is the update. I'd think he'd use it as a jump starter or, as I wrote, if Thomas is confused by what he's seeing pre-snap. That could be the case Saturday. We'll see.
I don't know, but I would hardly be surprised if he has. And I think the circumstances of last Saturday's game only reinforces that message.
It was, but maybe more than it should have been. Johnson called it "a killer" after the game, although he also said that it didn't mean the defense couldn't have forced another stop.
Sometimes, but one thing I appreciate about him is that he answers whatever questions you have and generally shoots pretty straight. But if there's something he doesn't want to talk about, then it becomes a bit challenging.
ha ha. Monday, I'm at home working on a blog/sort of not working until practice, when I do interviews, then write for online and Tuesday's paper. tuesday is Johnson's press conference in the morning and then i stay on campus until I'm done writing after practice. Wednesday, home until practice and more writing. Thursday, at home writing. Friday is the same. Saturday, cover the game. Sunday, mostly take the day off but a little bit of writing. It's a lot of work, but a fun time of the year. Thanks for your interest.
I would tend to think so.. It's not like they never blitz.
