  1. NIL, Transfers, and Stratospheric Salaries. What Is the Future of GT Football and College Football in General?

    If you want to continue down this path, then go to it. I am convinced that this will lead to Tech being increasingly marginalized in a semi pro environment that will cater to college programs willing to pay players exorbitant sums in grooming them to be professional athletes.
  2. NIL, Transfers, and Stratospheric Salaries. What Is the Future of GT Football and College Football in General?

    I cannot fathom why having a conference with schools that opt out of the NIL madness for players being given scholarships and nothing else is a matter for courts.
  3. GT Football Who is the GOAT

    I am not sure who you mean. Sinkwich I am sure was "Frank". Rauch, I am sure was John but sometimes called "Johnny". Trippi I am sure was Charlie. You must mean Sapp the drought breaker. I will check. As I begun to suspect, it was a twofer. We were both wrong. Sapp's first name was...
  4. Brent Key is flying in on helicopters to visit recruits.

    You just about have to fly a copter into that place. I am thinking that is the school that produced a somewhat celebrated running back for Auburn back in the day named Alfred Rawls.
  5. GT Football Who is the GOAT

    "Fireball Frankie" as he was known was the real deal. A true triple threat tailback in the old single wing. Dodd said he was the best UGA player he ever coached against and that included Rauch (spelling?) and Charlie Trippi. He remains one of just three Dwags to have their jerseys retired the...
  6. GT Football Who is the GOAT

    Dodd in his autobiography labeled him, "potentially" the greatest he ever coached. According to Dodd, who has seen way more football players than any of us, Castleberry was blessed with speed, quick feet, and uncanny vision. He compared him to Hawks basketball player "Spud" Webb.
  7. GT Football Who is the GOAT

    GOAT? In the modern era, I would go with Calvin, Joe Ham, and ELI Old Timers, I will say the Billy Lothridge, (spelling?), Joe Guyon, and Clint Castleberry. Billy was runner up in the Heisman, like Joe, to Roger Staubach. Castleberry, likewise received Heisman notice I believe. Castleberry...
  8. Today’s the day for Paul Johnson and Ralph Friedgen

    Bobby's characterization of Coach Johnson's offense was classic: "Dadgum wishbone"
  9. Today’s the day for Paul Johnson and Ralph Friedgen

    I don't know about typical interviews but Spurrier's post game commentary was always funny especially when he would zing his own players for having a big head and/or UGA.
  10. Portal Watch 2022-23

    Supposedly, both Babe Ruth and Ty Cobb stated that Jackson was the best natural hitter they ever saw.
  11. How Important is Recruiting?

    Your confidence does you credit...alas, I do not share it.
  12. How Important is Recruiting?

    Yes it does, but it is happening even more infrequently than even during the 1970s. It will be a very long time, if ever, before we are truly competitive. IIWII
  13. How Important is Recruiting?

    I don't keep up with recruiting, other than Tech of course, but I believed that UGA had more 5 stars than the chart shows. It is the consistency of getting more than just one or two each year that is impressive and the waves of 4 stars as well. Only a handful of factories can come close to...
  14. Connelly crowns the true CFB champion from 16 split or controversial titles

    Six, count them, six All Americans on that team and they beat a highly ranked Duke team on the road in Durham with ease.
  15. GT/FSU rivalry in the 90s

    What would you expect from one of Bear Bryant's boys?
  16. Portal Watch 2022-23

    He might be the biggest prospect Rice has secured since Jess Neely was running the program with great success more than 60 years ago.
  17. Portal Watch 2022-23

    "I'd probably have more interest if there was a break in college football between those who just want to drop any pretenses that the sport has anything to do with a University and those programs that want to operate under a more student-athlete model." An excellent summation of the current...
  18. Dontae!!!

    I was kind of wondering to which circle of hell he was consigned.
