    GT Golf and the US Amateur

    IMO, course difficulty is a non-factor as everyone plays the same course. A golf tourney winner is no different imo if he or she shoots an aggregate of 24 under or 7 over par. The lowest score is ultimately the winner altough all golfers prefer the easier set-up.. I found out this piece of...

    Not this year! This is the year that toe will meet leather for Charlie. I love the preseason. :)

    New Staff Hire

    Correct me if I am wrong. I know nothing about how it played out but there are two scenarios at play here...if he asked for the help and could justify it, give it to him. You (as a manager) want to provide resources and remove excuses. That's your job. Makes it easier to hire the next guys when...

    Attended the FedX/St. Jude golf tournament today

    Couple of comments since it has been years since I attended a pro golf event. I took my 10 yo grandson. We were in two places at various times through the day where you could get really close to the players as the moved from the green to the next tee. Several of the players stoppped and...

    Rank Your Excitement for 2022

    As a GT fan, my expectations have been pretty much this over the decades...if the games we are playing in late October mean something (division championship, bowl game eligibility, etc.) then it's been a good season. When Tech's season is done for the most part, I really don't care who is left...

    Rank Your Excitement for 2022

    I don't get that sense at all. The mood I get from most who post here is overwhelmingly the opposite. In fact, I get the sense that most have got their minds made up no matter what the season holds in store. I am not arguing either position is right or wrong, I am just commenting more on the...

    Fall Camp News

    This is not an endorsement for our Coach (put the pitchforks down please) but I have always had the similar fault...I always trust data. Reminds me of the guy who was the Maintenance Manager and Plant Engineer at a place I was responsible for. Dave always said "In God I trust...everyone else...

    Fall Camp News

    The soccer teams were I teach wear these vests that measure speed in mph. 20 mph (in bursts) is really great in soccer (iirc) at the HS level and that is without pads. The kids who run this fast are getting futbol schollies for the most part. The best players in the world in the European top...

    Athlon: ACC Coaches Talk Anonymously (2022)

    i would argue that no coach in modern FB really has any pressure on them anymore. Win and getter fatter contracts and/or better opportunities. Fail and take your 7 figure buyout and retire on the beach, play golf and coach peewee FB as a volunteer. These guys are pretty smart at the end of the...

    Undrafted Player Deals

    Yes but today is a new day, It's time to start the cycle over. Do you think we should go back to the TO offense? ;)

    Collins says players have 'chip on their shoulder'

    Great post and I doubt anyone disputes what you have typed here. I certainly don't. WTBS, a great coach gets us back to our 7 win glass ceiling. In the short term, that will feel like a blessing but remember the last 3/4 years of both CCG's and CPJ's tenure? GT fans were not exactly enthralled...

    Collins says players have 'chip on their shoulder'

    I think 90% of the Tech fans I know personally agree with you. It seems like the other 10% are convinced that getting a new coach (again) is the ticket to the promised land.

    Collins says players have 'chip on their shoulder'

    I read this board frequently (duh!) and think people oversimplify things. Our problems are bigger than our current HC sadly enough. The real problems are obvious and sacrificing another body at the alter like we did with the previous two guys won't change the systemic issues that plague us.

    B1G expansion?

    It's the modern variation of the "Golden Rule"...he or she or whatever pronouns are preferred who has the gold gets to make the rules. I think it's called progress.

    Collins says players have 'chip on their shoulder'

    The typical Gt fan I am convinced is a "self aware, savvy" consumer (and possibly a 16% chance of being a "millionaire") who will withhold a $100 contribution until things get better.

    Who’s going to the Benz on the Fifth?

    That is good news. I have often suspected (but don't know) that many of the disgruntled sports fans who seem to get so worked up and upset about this (or any other) game have been very fortunate never to have ever dealt with any of life's more serious and real difficulties. Keep up the good work...
