    "I have never defended CGC, ever..." LOL!

    Here's a thought

    LOL.. My point was Calvin is our Babe Ruth.... your point was to slam Paul....Yawn....

    Here's a thought

    "The ESPN article highlights Calvin Johnson and Demaryius Thomas (both players Johnson did not recruit)..." Well, in fairness, Paul could not have recruited Calvin to play at Tech as he was a Detroit Lion by the time Paul took over. "Take Johnson away and Tech isn't on the list." Take away Babe...

    Can we stay competitive in the NIL era?

    I think GoldZ and SOWEGA are both correct. They are arguing " a distinction without a difference". NIL makes Tech farm team for Power guys. Also, I am always amazed how much GT fans hate each other.

    Can we stay competitive in the NIL era?

    "... every once in a while we’ll luck up with a decent defense and a legit QB to win some games." This is truth....

    Going on the Record

    "...a team that quit..." HG.. I do not agree... I know this is a common observation.... and, in fairness to you and everyone else who makes this statement, sometimes it looks that way... But... Football is a "team" game made up of eleven individual efforts.... When you are down three TDs with 2...

    Can we stay competitive in the NIL era?

    Playoffs only work in arithmetic progression 2-4-8-16-32-64 Unlike basketball, football teams can, physically, only play once per week.... so additional time to crown national champ is 1 week-2-3-4-5 8 team play-off seems doable with 3 extra weeks...but 8 teams just means that 2 SEC and 2 Big...

    If the water level is at 1/2 vertical dimension, then this glass is less than 1/2 full.

    Transfer Portal: Who's Coming and Going (2022 Roster)

    Who is this "they" of whom you write? The NCAA is CFB-dead.... The NCAA runs a basketball tournament...other than that, nothing. The lid on Pandora's box can never be replaced... portal and NIL is new normal... Super conference is coming...Top 50 programs... At this time, GT (and...

    Transfer Portal: Who's Coming and Going (2022 Roster)

    We really need Geoff to figure it out for 2022. As we all know, the NIL and free agency (portal) have changed college football forever. Pandora's box has been opened and cannot be closed. And, as many of you have anticipated and predicted, sometime soon (2030-ish) the FBS will fragment ...

    Transfer Portal: Who's Coming and Going (2022 Roster)

    Wow. That is truly sick.

    Transfer Portal: Who's Coming and Going (2022 Roster)

    "...the transfer portal is actually going to be a bit of a fad..." I respectfully disagree...I think the portal is the new "normal"...over 1000 CFB players have entered the portal...... No one knows where this will lead CFB...or GT....the only thing clear is that NCAA is a dead man walking...

    Where to begin? Offense or Defense?

    "...while running similar offenses defenses to what the factories run?..." We are not Alabama... Joe Lee Dunn died in Columbus, GA this past Oct... “The people that win the championships throw the ball, so if you want to win, you’ve got to stop that,” Dunn said once in an interview on...

    Predicting Future Success

    "My former coach used to say the best defense is a time consuming offense." Just talked with Paul...he says Hi" and he agrees with your "former coach"....

    Where to begin? Offense or Defense?

    Not even close....it is defense Historically, when GT is good, we have played good (or kinda OK...) defense. There was no "transition away from the option" required on the defensive side of the ball... We gave up 70+ to Clemson in 20, then 100 in last two games of 21.... It is defense.....
