I agree & sorry if I wasn't clear but I don't believe that was the sole reason why Gebbia left. It really had to be a combination of multiple things. The minor ones really could have just piled up.
During a press conference this fall a reporter asked Scott Frost about "his guy", and he downplayed this notion. This was one theory I presented in a thread yesterday that could have played into the decision.
I know any coach worth his salt will scoff at the notion of "their guy", when this is brought up by the media. They will say that these are all their guys once they accepted the job. I don't doubt that they all believe this, but deep down we all are human and whether we want to believe it or not sometimes we are still swayed by what we truly want. If this was the case, TG is smart and he would be able to see this as well and I would give him respect for sticking around this long and battling to try and change the coaches minds.
Many on here have said TG didn't fit the system and was too small to take the pounding. Yet now they bash on him for doing what is right for him. I will root for him, where ever he goes, accept if he plays Nebraska. The best of luck to you Tristan, thank you for your effort while you were here and may you have many successes! GBR!
