  1. Can we stay competitive in the NIL era?

    This is just pure comedy. This is what our society has become. All aspects of life are now TMZ moments. This is the 21st Centuries version of soap operas. So a program who is the King of under the table deals are now mad at teams who are good at over the table deals. This is awesome to...

    I don’t know and I don’t care. What I know is that the largest building on our campus is a sports building. I know that the events that draw the most alumni and bring in the most walking around money are football games. I know the most energy and excitement on campus centers around 6 weekends...
  3. ACC Spring Overreactions

    No it’s not. What does Paul Johnson have to do with any of this? He chose to coach at Navy. Nobody forced him to pass up opportunities at bigger programs. I’m a huge Johnson fan going back to Southern. I’m a South Georgia guy so I know more about Johnson than those who jumped on him when GT...
  4. ACC Spring Overreactions

    No I’m not implying we can’t have good coaches. I‘m saying, not implying, that thru whatever circumstances happened Long went to Tulane and is now at a triple year 3 win team. I am worried that we have overblown expectations for Long because he had success at ND. A lot of coaches would have...
  5. ACC Spring Overreactions

    I’m not denying that. I’m simply saying I see a lot of savior believing in Long and I’m leery because Collins is his boss. I’d be more optimistic if Long was Collins boss because Collins has shown us what he can do. Also, if Long were all world he wouldn’t be the OC at a school like GT.
  6. ACC Spring Overreactions

    None of us have any clue because Collins is still here and we all watched him bring Choice and Key down to his level instead of them pulling him up. Someone said the jury is still out on Weinke. He hasn’t coached a down yet so we have no clue if he’s a savant or a PNode. Everyone expects Long...

    I hear you but GT has the money. They just pretend they can’t use it. In other words GT hides behind academics to defend their mediocrity. If we were UGA and had decades of mediocrity or 3 straight 3 win seasons you can guarantee they’d be tapping the money like GT has to jump start the...

    Not if we pay. In other words we have to play the game like everyone else. It’s GT’s problem not “the system”. No different than the reason we didn’t get Cam, Watson, Tuitt, or any other high end player from the ATL area long before NIL and the portal. We didn’t play the game of the day. GT...

    But you aren’t calculating the players we are picking up. As someone posted, the numbers show the portal has been a net gain for GT. And I’m not buying the “we are losing all our diamonds in the rough”. We lost one impact player in Gibbs. We didn’t lose our best defender in Thomas, or our...

    Well played!! That is an awesome post. I guess I’m just different because for 50 years I’ve been seeing her spread eagle in my mind anyway so year 51 didn’t shock me. I guess my pride was gone long ago on this subject when my school basically stopped playing the game. When you get punched in...

    This is where I’m confused. If you are getting off now, why didn’t you get off when Switzer and Johnson bought Nattys? In other words, why now? Just because its posted on Instagram? I actually got off the merry go round when I was 10 years old after hearing about how Herschel was bought...

    I know we are on the same page and I‘m not meaning to come across like I’m mad at you or anyone. It’s just 40 years of frustration over corruption. My entire college football fandom has been one of total frustration and for every year except this year most fans didn’t see what was really going...

    But it’s not. It’s exactly what has been going on already. Now, it’s just done in the open because the players don’t have to hide it. For instance this current guy. This isn’t the first time GT got a commitment and then the recruit flipped to somewhere else and we never heard about it. The...

    Why is this infuriating and ridiculous just now? Where was this angst at all the other players we lost to the higher bidder for the last 4 decades? Just because the vast majority of college football fans had their head in the sand the last 4 decades doesn’t mean the sky is falling now. Welcome...
  15. Can we stay competitive in the NIL era?

    Enforcement staff? This is comedy gold. It’s professional wrestling. Next year when the Parade of Roses is happening and USC is in the Rose Bowl and Bama and UGA are once again in the Final Four I’ll be sitting here reading about our coaching search laughing my back side off. As the previous...
