    I think they can. There’s a lot of “ifs” that go along with my opinion but I guess it’s possible. Still waiting....

    I think GT will put it together enough in 2018 to win 8-9 games;)(y)

    All I can say to that is that Johnson has been asking for additional staff and other resources since he arrived at Tech, and TStan is the first of the 3 AD's to respond.

    That's the first I heard of that too. Not saying it's not true, but .....

    FWIW, If I posted that what @jacketup posted is absolutely not true, then you would be in a bind.

    His posting history is anti Johnson while mine is pro. This issue has never or rarely been raised.

    Maybe he'll provide a link.

    Not sure exactly what you meant in the first line, but I guess the second line means you and I agree.

    I think you and I mostly agree about most things. You care about colors more than I.

    @jacketup made a post about lazy DRad and CPJ that I considered beneath you.

    Personally, I think it will take either an absurd amount of luck or some sort of serious effort by the school to commit to football. Johnson has talked about it on multiple occasions, but the big wigs running Tech are too intent on maintaing academic integrity and forcing athletes through the ringer instead of winning. Plus, most successful Tech alumni aren't too worried about football winning percentage. In the current cfb arms race, the window only gets smaller.

    Yes, we were so close in 2014. If we could get an offense close to the 2014 season, and a D in the top 30 we could do it IMO.

    True fresh has injury history? I’ve only heard of one, id day that’s far from “history” unless there has been more. Also Campbell not playing QB for us doesn’t necessarily mean he didn’t have the talent, it could have just been not reading plays well which is more about eyes and mind but not talent. Another player could come in and just be able to read players better. The true freshman is the real deal and could be starting in year two imo. VT wanting him at other positions and not at QB also has no baring on if he would be good for us at QB, because we run AlOT more than VT so it can be completely different when they offer a QB and we offer a QB.

    He was encouraged to leave because he turned minor violations into full-blown probation by being uncooperative with NCAA investigators.

    It depends on who is at quarterback and whether it rains.

    We are never "catching up" to the factories in facilities. We are actually ahead of most programs with our budget.

    And I think that meager increase in recruiting staff is gonna pay off big time. The new lockeroom will as well as will the new uni provider. We have a new DC as well. There are lots of steps being made to improve the program that I believe will pay big dividends on the field.

    +1000, Now we just need a little bit of time to get the fruits of this to pay off. Hopefully nothing dumb happens and CPJ leaves or idiots win and get him pushed out.

    Agree, give it 2 years of this stuff being implemented and I think we will begin to see the start of big changes.

    We finished 2014 ranked #8 without sacrificing academics. In fact, we were very close to having a one-loss season and we beat the Dwags. While academics may present an extra hurdle, it does not make things impossible.

    The planets aligned perfectly that year. I'd prefer not to wait for the next alignment.

    I might be delusional but I'm waiting for the big shift in college athletics where the 4-5* SA's realize the factories are just using them and they decide it's best to get a solid education along with playing D1 sports ...
    Not sure how the college bball scandal will sort out, but maybe it'll get someones attention enough to level the playing field in all college sports.
    And sign me up for YES we will put it all together ... "Together We Swarm is eternal !!
