    The Citadel Postgame

    I asked the question in the off-season if the new staff had demonstrated in-game coaching ability... I have my answer...

    Broken leg? I think it was an ACL, right? Snoddy had the broken leg... And no, he didn't play prior to the knee...

    Coaching Acumen of the New Staff...

    I asked a very simple question: Is there evidence that demonstrates the ability of the new staff to effectively coach a ball game? If such evidence exists, I haven't seen it... I don't doubt that Stansbury and CGC know what they are doing, and I am NOT second-guessing anyone... The point...

    Coaching Acumen of the Previous Staff...

    Agreed - the two most painful aspects of the last decade were the absence of an effective defensive and some inexplicable personnel decisions... Again, this is not yet another "past good, future bad" post - all I was asking was for some evidence that the new staff can win coaching battles...

    Coaching Acumen of the New Staff...

    This is not/not intended to be a negative post about CGC and the new staff - I hope we exceed all reasonable expectations this Fall, and I hope we become the powerhouse we all hope the program will be... That said, one of the things I enjoyed most about CPJ was the display of coaching ability...

    Everyone missed the obvious: Kevin Tisdel... I think he was a walk on and had how many kickoff returns for touchdown...

    I know what my problem is now after thinking about it

    I'm old too (55 yo), but it's not change I have a problem with - it's the rah-rah/hype train/juiced up thing that grows a bit tiresome... I liked CPJ's approach to the game, the media, life, and so on... Straight-effin shooter... Been around long enough, you come to appreciate people of that...

    Quick Lane Bowl Postgame Discussion

    As much as I liked CPJ and option football, I'll never understand why he insisted on playing a QB who ran 100% of the playbook ineffectively over one that ran 50% of it effectively... Watching the decision-making at QB was mind-numbing...

    [Poll] Out of pure curiosity - Did you attend Georgia Tech?

    OK - We now have our Dabo...

    Disclaimer: I am CPJ guy, and I wanted Monken... That said: CGC reminds me of CDS when he was hired at Clemson - rah rah, high energy, a little clownish, but very likable... Many of us didn't think CDS would last, but he has achieved as much as one could hope for - he's turned Clemson into a...

    Yellow Jacket Presentation to Bill Curry

    Following up my previous post, here's a video of our presentation of the YJ to Georgia Tech... https://mediaspace.gatech.edu/media/RC+Airplane+-+Bob+Barton/1_sz0h5yfi Many thanks to CBC and Tech's historian, Marilyn Somers, who was instrumental in this process... My dad watched the video with...

    Potential Head Coach Hires

    I am saddened over CPJ's departure, but I was glad it was on his terms... I am strongly in favor of Monken - I would hate to be yet another RPO clone... I saw an earlier post regarding Friedgen's offense and how it incorporated a range of styles, including our current form of of option (A/B...

    Trying to donate our Yellow Jacket...

    Another YJ write up from my dad... More Yellow Jacket Stories In one of the seasons while Bill Waites and Bill Cooksey were the YJ pilots, they decided to get a little fancy and do some aerobatics. The simplest stunt they could imagine was to have the two YJs, flying in formation, to do...

    Trying to donate our Yellow Jacket...

    This is a write up by my father that I will provide to the GT historian: GA Tech Band Mascot Sometime in the late 1940’s, some of the tech students got the idea of having a control-line model airplane, shaped and painted to represent a yellow jacket, as the band’s mascot. When I arrived at...

    Trying to donate our Yellow Jacket...

    Dad built and flew this airplane for the 1955 season - all the scores for that year are written on the wing... Actually, he graduated in 1956, not 1957... I have more details I'll post later...

    Trying to donate our Yellow Jacket...

    A quick update - I received a response from Brad Malone (branding and ideation) and Stephanie Swant (assistant to the Ad), and was put in touch with the GT Historian, Marilyn Somers... Marilyn has been nothing short of fantastic, and has arranged for us to donate the Yellow Jacket on Wednesday...

    Trying to donate our Yellow Jacket...

    I mentioned this a while back, but my dad (AE '57) flew a yellow jacket model airplane at halftime during his time at GT... Here's a link with some pictures and video of us flying the model a few years ago: https://photos.app.goo.gl/B2IIFHKfOGnZAkLq1 I reached out to Todd Stansbury a year ago...

    Home Jersey Number Difficult to Read From the Stands
