  1. new schedule format

    I wish the ACC had just gone to a pure rotational system. I don’t care how they did what they did. What we got sucks, feels like the dregs. Clemson will make money but, like UGA, result in an almost certain loss - every year. Louisville is not a rival. Wake doesn’t feel like one either, but...
  2. B1G expansion?

    A Wolverine's view: As has been pointed out, the BiG attaches a bit more importance to a school's educational credentials than does the SEC.
  3. B1G expansion?

    I don't think most North Carolinians (of which I am one) would confuse UNC with a yankee magnet school.
  4. B1G expansion?

    I think she must have confused it with UNC's next door neighbor, Dook.
  5. Transfer Portal: Who's Coming and Going (2022 Roster)

    I think we are in a transition phase now. I believe we're likely to see some restraints put on the transfer portal. I think they'd like to put some constraints around NIL, but that will be very difficult. The rich will get richer, and competition will suffer. Some fans will lose interest.
  6. We need to jump ship

    O'Leary had it about right when he said that Tech folks want to be MIT during the week and FSU on weekends. Not an easy road, but probably more compatible with being in the ACC than the SEC.
  7. We need to jump ship

    That was George Morris from Vicksburg, I believe. Dodd felt he was the best of all the players he coached. (Larry, the other Morris, was from Decatur.)
  8. Suddes

    UNC is the flagship college athletic program in NC, and their fan base easily exceeds ours. Their financial situation is also considerably stronger. They have an excellent academic reputation and offer a university curriculum. Which makes for an attractive place to build a football program...
  9. OC Chip Long Press Conference

    Over the many years I've watched Tech football, three OCs stand out: Frank Broyles, Ralph Friedgen, and Paul Johnson. I would love to see this guy join the circle.
  10. Mostly “Fire Geoff Collins”, some reminiscing, maybe bourbon or other distractions

    Recruits, prospects, and their friends, parents read this stuff. So do competitive recruiters who love looking through our dirty laundry. Our continuing to dwell on it does us no good. Time to get off this sad train and make an effort to be positive for a change. Or just be quiet. If you...
  11. Mostly “Fire Geoff Collins”, some reminiscing, maybe bourbon or other distractions

    This whole thread has served its purpose, run its course, and needs to be deleted or at least frozen. Keeping it front and center can only harm Tech football.
  12. Former Jacket, Travares Tillman is our next DB coach

    Travares was an outstanding DB and a favorite of mine during the last half of the 90s. If he coaches anywhere near the level of his play, he'll be a real asset to the program.
  13. Mostly “Fire Geoff Collins”, some reminiscing, maybe bourbon or other distractions

    We need something different that sets us apart. We had that in CPJ - unique offense, very smart game day coach. On balance he was a successful Tech head football coach. Unfortunately, we didn't have the money to support a competitive staff (esp DC). Collins is also different - his marketing...
  14. OK, #BCvsGT Postgame. BC wins 41-30

    Someone on radio, probably SeanBedford, remarked that BC had prepared to face a Sims led offense, and that they would have prepared for something completely different if they'd known Yates was going to be our QB. May help explain our early offensive success.
  15. Harrison Bailey transfer

    I think the jury should still be out on Jeff Sims QB. He has the physical qualities/talents, but, as we know, to be a successful QB demands more. Jeff hasn't shown key decision making and other key QB skills (e.g., looking off pass defenders) on a consistent basis. Reason for hope: Does...
