For everyone still on the HE train bc of what it would do to recruiting if we had another coaching change (which I know will not happen this year no matter what), consider Georgia Tech, Kansas, and Purdue are all ranked ahead of ASU right now with their 2020 classes. I get that things can change but considering how bad GT currently is and that they are looked on as an afterthought in their own state, how bad Kansas has been the entire decade, and how bad Purdue has been this decade (not including 2018), that is pretty pathetic. I thought this staff was supposed to bring so much cache to the living rooms of these recruits. CTG had us in the 30-35 range in almost every one of his recruiting classes and actually finished a bit higher than 30 once or twice. This is more of the same bullshit. I don't know the details of how CTGs buyout is being paid or who is paying it (would imagine boosters are taking care of it and not coming from athletic department $) but think about how big of a waste that is. We got rid of a coach after he went 6-3 in conference for basically the same results in a different package. On top of that, CTG was pretty damn successful his first three years. He won 28 games during that span. Even if we win 10 in 2020 CHE would not equal that...this move mad zero sense other than it being driven by our "athletic director"'s ego and belief that he can reinvent the wheel.
