Still no word from UVA.

Probably nothing. Probably just waiting to announce a presser later today. I'm just surprised that there wasn't an announcement either last night or sometime before 9:00 AM that would say something like, "UVA will hold a press conference at noon today." Just to alert the media of the time.

I'm imagine the holdup in situations like this often comes down to finalizing a deal. It's possible UVA has decided on Elliott and Elliott has mutual interest but maybe Elliott is negotiating more money and a higher buyout or something. Can't really announce the hiring until the deal is finalized.

I agree with you.

But, when Elliott took his family and several days worth of luggage, I figured that in Elliott's mind it was a done deal. If he still had questions that needed to be answered, I would think he would leave his family in Clemson.

But, this year, I obviously know nothing. Nothing that has happened this carousel that makes sense to me.

Possible I guess that he wanted them to stay there for a few days so they could see where they'd potentially be living so he could see if the situation would work for them as well.

It could be money, but also we have a large support staff here that TE is accustomed to. UVA like many schools may not have that, so TE could be negotiating for more analyst etc.. That is supposedly why Napier pulled his name from being considered by USuC last year.

They may be a little more cautious with Elliott since just a few days ago word got out that Poindexter was their guy and would get the job and then it fell apart.

The Tigers have had a lot of success recruiting the state of Virginia. That could end when TE takes the UVA job.

Everybody except the in-state schools has been having a lot of success lately recruiting Virginia.

That's a big reason why both schools have new coaches.

Obviously the new coaches may have a chance to change that, but they are fighting a major uphill battle against a lot more than just Clemson.

no way. the power of the paw is much greater than the cavalier. besides, in Virginia, where i grew up, Va Tech was the more dominant recruiter in that state. UVA often went north to find their recruits. While they have exceptions, they still hold the line, more than others on academics.

So you think that Elliott was able to recruit players from Virginia to be Clemson Tigers but he want be able to recruit them to Charlottesville. Interesting.

Being recruited by Virginia and Clemson would be like comparing apples and oranges with the facilities and fan support alone.

Is Elliott the recruiter for the Virginia area?

I thought he did his work in SC, GA and Florida.

Obviously as OC he has at least a little piece in all offensive recruits, but I thought Reed (maybe) was the Virignia area guy.

I have a good friend and Clemson grad that lives in Charlottesville and…

The local sports talk radio up there is saying it’s a done deal. Just dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s now.

Probably needs more time to negotiate huge salary for his OC and staff. A poaching purse so to speak . .
