#DearAndy: Texas AD job, Georgia's offense and AAC's success
Wednesday September 16th, 2015

In this week’s #DearAndy, Andy Staples answers your questions from Twitter on…

• Why would anyone want to be Texas’s athletic director? Well, there’s over a million reasons actually. But what does it take to be successful? Andy offers his advice for whoever gets the job and gives his list of candidates Texas should consider.

• Why do people care about rankings this early in the season? And why do the rankings even exist?

• Will “Throw the dang ball, Schotty” replace “Run the dang ball, Bobo” at Georgia? If quarterbacks Greyson Lambert and Brice Ramsey are struggling to complete passes, why shouldn’t new offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer just keep giving the ball to star running back Nick Chubb? What kind of run-pass balance will finally make Bulldogs fans happy?

• If an American Athletic Conference team goes 13–0, could it make the playoff? Temple, Memphis and Houston all play decent nonconference schedules, so would they deserve a top-four spot if they go undefeated?
