Ok. Explain it to me. What is the upside for Deion to take on Georgia Tech? Inquiring minds want to know ...
1. low expectations. ignoring collins our last two regimes averaged 7 wins a season. not exactly a high bar. also knows this fanbase is STARVING and two good seasons would make him a cult hero.
2. location/market. while auburn isn’t far you are literally in the epicenter of football in the south. great high schools you can just go watch and be ready for kickoff the next day. i think deion would also be able to leverage the 404/atlanta stuff collins envisioned but deion would actually be able to capitalize since he isn’t a goofball
3. much more realistic path to winning/competing to win the conference. auburn having to play uga and bama in conference is brutal. we get clemson but that’s only 1 conference game and frankly not as tough to beat
4. i think deion cares a lot about giving kids opportunities and he would really lean into giving kids the chance to get a great degree. listening to what he says at jackson state makes me think he isn’t just here to play football factory
at the end of the day you watch national media and everyone talks about how tech is a sleeping giant. georgia tech fans are the only ones that talk about our program like no one would want to come here. even clemson, uga, and other acc fans talk about how tech should be in a better spot than we have been the last 20 years
