    If he had stayed here long enough for that talent to graduate, you would have seen better seasons than TS, but I don’t think we would have seen anything special. We sure would t have pulled down the record App has.

    The only thing I can give Fritz is he has a better network of coordinators and assistants. That makes any HC look good.

    Y’all act like he was some kind of mastermind innovator. He was not. Fritz was an opportunist. He saw what was here and used it to get his pink butt a raise ASAP.
    Here’s a news flash: no one in the football world but a handful of jilted-lover GS fans defines Fritz’ career by his time in Statesboro. You really think Arkansas and Missouri interviewed him because of what he did here? Georgia Southern is a footnote on his 2-page resume.

    Chad Lunsford just matched his 2-year win total AND turned us completely around from a disastrous 2 years, and we aren’t even talking about being worried about losing him.
    Sincerely,
    Irwin M. Fletcher

    P.S.: Have a nice day!

    Well, duh... that is a direct correlation of being a successful HC for 30 years. A good HC doesn't accidentally have good coordinators and assistants after 3 decades of evaluating and building relationships.

    Personally, I don't care for Fritz (or Monken) but describing Fritz as 'middling' and his FCS talent at GS as 'outstanding' in the same sentence is simply imprudent.

    He left us in a way which did a lot more damage than need be.

    But my point is he is a competent, average, middling coach. He simply is.

    Fritz is good at his job, but nothing special. Any coach with eyes and any kind of understanding of his job would have done exactly the same (or better) than Fritz.

    People want to put him up there with Erk or PJ because he had two good seasons with incredible talent. A really amazing coach can take far less talented teams and make them do incredible things. Fritz simply did what any competent coach would have. He doesn't deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as any of our great coaches. People like Erk, PJ, and Monken have worked miracles with far less talent. In fact, Monken deserves much of Fritz's credit because of the kind of team he recruited. (Just imagine what erk or PJ would have accomplished with similar talent.)

    Fritz was competent, not special. You want to thank someone for that success, thank Monken. Fritz looks so much better than he is because of what followed.

    (You folks are living in a fantasy world if you really think he somehow flew under the radar for almost 30 years.)
    So, Monken "worked a miracle" (lol) with far less talent, while Fritz should only get credit for winning with Monken's talent?

    Fritz had some misses (all coaches do as recruiting is still a crapshoot), but overall recruiting was good under him.

    Mismanagement of the players on the roster (that Fritz recruited) and poor development during the Summers era led us to the position we're in now.

    A lot of good players were run off during that time. We also recruited quite a few under Summers that either never made it to campus or have left pretty quickly.

    Especially considering the stagnant several years or so which preceded him.

    When he took over, there was no question that football was in a bad place and had been there for a long time.

    He put our program where it needed to be for FBS, and that’s pretty darn good considering what he inherited. There was quite a stretch between PJ and Monken when things were not awesome
    But, you said that record Monken achieved was with "far less talent," AND said that Fritz only won because of the "outstanding" talent Monken left him. You understand the contradiction there, right?

    Really left the whole "Coaching Carousel" in the back ground for a page or two. I will be interested to see what other, if any of our Sunbelt counterparts lose a coach. Anybody other than Napier or Anderson being tossed around?

    It would be nice if we are able to hold onto everybody and have some continuity for a second year.

    Other than Drinkwitz going to Mizzou, those are the only names I have heard.

    i think only Napier would be next in line. Not sold on the other guy.

    Now that the bigger jobs are filled, I expect the other jobs will create another round of silliness. Then of course we will have the NFL Black Monday in a few weeks, which could further impact things (if Lincoln Riley or David Shaw get snatched up).
