    This is how Jeff got hired.


    “It’s funny, you look back and things happen for a reason,” Goff said. “I was put on the national football committee a year ago and we go out and kind of helped run the national championship in Texas. I was out there all week and got a chance to reconnect with Herb and just talk ball and talk about my path and everything. And then, there was no news about anything. Out of nowhere, he came calling that the job was going to be open. So, I just went through the application process, got a chance to interview with Herb and got the job [laughs].”

    Yep. So players, the man upstairs was looking after you all along. Circumstances were set in motion long before we all knew what was happening.

    I just hope he don't abandon our running game some coaches are so pass happy they tend to abandon a running game and you need balance as we saw in our team last year and some games the run was so dominant there was no reason to pass it. I wish him well and I hope everything works out I knew many people wanted Russ as coach but good luck Coach Goff.

    An awesome statement that transcends ALL subject matter.

    If he's a coach worth a darn (which I believe he is), he'll see/know about the talented backfield that VSU has. He should be inclined to use it as much as he can.

    “we still run the Air Raid. It’s a spread offense that utilizes our running backs a lot in the backfield — we’ve always had a 1,000-yard rusher. But we’re an attacking, no-huddle offense so very similar to what you saw Coach (Kerwin) Bell do here a year ago.”

    Looks like we might change the specifics but the general plan will remain the same. Doesn’t appear he will be abandoning the run game!

    This will all depend on how well VSU can plug the holes left on the offensive line, namely at center.

    Gonna be an interesting year of GSC football, as always.

    Somebody said they say Larold talking with Goff. He use to be a center in high school.
    Of course, they used leather helmets back then. But, he's added weight !!

    Anyone know if Coach Goff is related to Coach Ray Goff of IGA fame?

    No clue, but I imagine if he was it'd have been mentioned somewhere in his bio or the intro press conference.

    Fortunately, the backups got plenty of snaps last year, on both offense and defense. I recall watching the 2nd string near the end of the season and noticing the skills were there ( Blazers kept scoring), just needed some discipline and seasoning to prevent movement and holding calls.

    I WISH you would (could) get your facts straight! Helmets were introduced the year after I graduated.
    You ARE right about one thing tho, If I WAS the new center, I'd be HELL to move.

    Could you play the whole game (i.e. would Coach Goff need to key in 911 and keep his finger near the "send" button just in case?)

    Yeah. that's the question. Although , there is no doubt to his quality of play, however, his stamina could be an issue.

    I don't see a problem, 911 is programmed into my Med-a-lert neck chain.
