re: SEC Coaches, ranked - so_comfort
[quote]Four years as a head coach, three top ten finishes, two top five finishes, an SEC title, Rose Bowl and Sugar Bowl win, playoff victory, national championship game appearance...these might be a few of the reasons. [/quote] "bUt mUH nATionAL cHaMpIonShip" - Rant morons probably...

re: Monken vs Bobo - so_comfort
Monken and it's not close for me. I was never one of those "fire Bobo" guys, and I freely admit he was very good when he was here. I just think it's sometimes harder to recapture the magic than create it anew. Also, I believe Smart will be forced to give a guy like Monken more autonomy to ru...

re: Monken To Uga - so_comfort
Here's the real breakdown. Looks about average for a football coach. 1993–1999 Eastern Michigan 7 years 2000–2001 Louisiana Tech 2 years 2002–2004 Oklahoma State 3 years 2005–2006 LSU 2 years 2007–2010 Jacksonville Jaguars 4 years 2011–2012 Oklahoma State 2 years 2013–2015 Southern...

[quote]We all know about the Big 12 Ds he faced. Same with ND.[/quote] You have completely missed the point. It's not about the [b]absolute [/b]numbers he put up in those two seasons. It's about the [b]relative [/b]comparison between how much he improved the offense when he was there and how fa...

re: Monken To Uga - so_comfort
Interesting graphic I found. The 2011-2012 column represents the two years Monken was calling plays at OKST vs. the two years before him and the two years after him. [link=(https://www.si.com/college/notredame/football/notre-dame-football-should-nd-consider-todd-monken)]https://www.si.com/colleg...

[quote]I think salyer takes LT, and the numerous freshman battle for the RT spot.[/quote] Certainly possible. What I'd really like to happen is Truss and one of the FR tackles work out allowing Salyer to slide back to one of the guard spots. That would be huge. ...

re: Monken To Uga - so_comfort
[quote]I know they're not Freshman but I am curious: What is Georgia's 2-deep for 2020?[/quote] My best guess right now, but could change, of course: LT - RsFR Truss (0.9158 4 Star) LG - SR Shaffer (0.8828 3 Star) C - JR Hill (0.9692 4 Star) RG - RsSR Cleveland (0.9565 4 Star) RT - JR Saly...

re: Monken To Uga - so_comfort
[quote]Changing your QB, scheme, offensive line, OC in one off-season and having the offense firing on all cylinders is Herculean.[/quote] I agree. There are a ton of moving parts, and it is going to take time to get everyone on the same page and rowing in the same direction. On a similar bu...

re: Monken To Uga - so_comfort
[quote]RB1 + RB2 gone[/quote] True, but there is probably only one or two teams nationally that wouldn't trade RB units with UGA. The talent is there. [quote]Cager gone[/quote] That does suck, but Pickens is the best WR UGA has had since AJ. [quote]TE1 and TE2 gone.[/quote] True, but...

[quote]Don’t know much about him but what were his issues with the Browns?[/quote] From Zac Jackson of The Athletic: Speaking of disgruntled offensive coordinators, Todd Monken’s one season with the Browns was a disaster. Monken had the offensive coordinator title but Kitchens called the plays...

re: Monken To Uga - so_comfort
[quote]His last five games[/quote] Yep. That happens when you lose your best two WRs and don't have the team depth to replace them. Not really a conundrum if you look into the "why" of the stats rather than just being satisfied with a face value assessment. ...

re: Monken To Uga - so_comfort
[quote]You're one hundred percent right in this. I think that's why Monken is a good hire, I just don't know if that's something that can be significantly changed in one off-season. If Georgia can hold Monken for 2 years, it will greatly improve their chances to win a National Championship -- but I ...

re: Monken To Uga - so_comfort
[quote]The problem with Jamie is that he's still not quite there in reading defenses. It's very easy in the ACC where pass defense is optional, but the moment he played Clemson they absolutely shut him down and baited him into several interceptions. He will have good receivers, but he will also f...

[quote]“Joe Burrow is far and away the highest-graded quarterback throwing to a tight window, but Newman is second — and third isn’t anywhere near him. He also limited his uncatchable pass rate to the fourth lowest. Newman has some rushing ability and has seen the eighth-most designed rushes for ...

[quote]It's an interesting hire, maybe even a good one, but I don't feel like Dogs are being objective at all these days. [/quote] That's why I posted what someone completely unrelated to UGA had to say about Monken. No UGA bias in Fitzpatrick. ...

[quote]Genghis[/quote] So, whom should I believe? Ryan Fitzpatrick who was actually coached by Monken? Nope. I bet some random jackleg poster on a message board has better insight into Monken's ability. I'm going with Genghis. :rolleyes:...
