    A series of 5 articulate voices from older figures long associated with the program, there at the beginning, pretty much unanimous.

    If you go back I bet the same had great things to say about TS and the Goober................ how did that pan out for the rest of us GS boosters.

    That is great, I am glad he is liked by a handful of people with deep pockets and players that will be gone in 2yrs... but can CL win, can he get us SB championships and get GS to the next level?

    I am not saying he cannot (I really hope he does) I am just not sure that his likability is reason to assume he can accomplish those things.

    I have no doubt with the committee and older boosters that the similarities that Tyson and Lunsford have plays big to that crowd......they sound just like both.

    I had to laugh when the one booster said he will not be looking for a job soon, why do people continue to believe that stupid crap. If Tulane comes and offers Lunsford 1.6M like they are paying Fritz now he is walking to Tulane to take the job if he has to. It is NEVER true EVER. GS is not his family his family is his family and they will always come first same fore any coach.

    If you only listen to one of those people, listen to Bucky Wagner.
    Don't choose to be annoyed. Choose to be amused.

    If you think TK is the reason we don't have better non-conference football schedules, see this post.

    Bucky built a program without even a football at first, then left to I think to FSU. It doesn't take a lot of money to win football games, he and Erk proved that even if Erk was once in a lifetime. Erk's office was a trailer with a garden tub not a palace.
    Throwing money at someone doesn't mean winning. Look at the BSC millions wasted on coaches, would you do that with your own hard earned money. Just because they do it doesn't mean GS has to.

    Bucky knows about promoting from within. He hired Tim Stowers when Erk retired.

    I'm not sure if that is support or a shot at Bucky.
    But if it isn't support, Stowers DID win a NC and I believe was hand picked by Erk to be the next guy.
    So, not hiring him would have been bold.
    And before the "he won the NC with ERK's players".... if we haven't learned that the wrong coach can take a great set of players and fail.. we need to take another look at 2016.

    Try... Try not to be so cynical. It's easy to slip into finding he fault in everything. Nothing is perfect, but focusing on those things isn't healthy and can inhale vigorously the joy out of life. Focus on the positives and you'll live longer.

    In reality - Summers and Lunsford aren't alike at all.
    Lunsford earned his way through the ranks here. He put in his time/life dedication.. mostly here.
    The players wanted him... nobody was asking for Summers. Taking Summers over DM made little sense. Except that Coordinator tag/label.
    That tag/label didn't help him. By translation of that fact - the counter must also potentially be true - that an assistant without such a label could be much BETTER.
    I.E. - it doesn't effect how good the coach/hire is. IF Lunsford was an OC or DC at another FBS and we hired him - would you feel better? He'd be the same guy.

    In regards to the booster's comment on Lunsford and him staying in Statesboro.
    The guy never said that he would never leave if a big offer came. Nobody would expect anybody to turn down financial prosperity for their families.
    He just said that he isn't going to be "looking" for another place to be. I believe Fritz had agents continuously seeking that from the day he was hired. I don't blame him for that either. Especially when he was an older coach, he had earned imop the ability to keep moving on/up. And he had no ties nor did his family in any interest in staying a part of this community - agian - no fault to he or his family for that.

    But you have to recognize that Lunsford IS different. Not so different that he'd turn down a P5 HC job with millions/year. Not so different that if we has BIG success here (that we all hope he does)- he might have an agent at that point "check into things". But for the near future, I think Chad is set on staying put and keeping his family in the only place his kids may have ever known. Stability for your kids is part of what is best for you family. Chad has demonstrated that desire for stability by not leaving with previous staffs. I don't know, but I find it hard to believe that he wasn't offered such opportunities when Monken left and Fritz. Given his obvious ties to recruiting GA - that'd be a big asset to both Tulane and Army... I'd think so anyway. Soon we should be able to keep most G5's from taking our HC.
    If he finds the wins, and a P5 pay day comes knocking, Chad will answer the door and at least talk as would anyone. Hopefully that will be when his kids are much older.

    Chad is as True Blue as you or I. Alumni move off for job ops. Players leave early for drafts, Presidents get hired away. That doesn't make anyone less True Blue.
    That doesn't make anyone less of a member of the Eagle family.
