This is what I mean. We are top 50 STEM school in the world and STILL playing D1 football. And by the data, we're Top Quartile. I personally think that's pretty cool.Reinhardt and West Georgia alum here. I certainly don't want Tech to tank its academic reputation for the sake of football and I will be a fan, regardless. But I don't think Tech should throw away its athletic tradition, either. I truly believe there is a happy medium and that a successful GT football program is beneficial to alums and sidewalk fans alike.
Tech football will never be a Bama or Georgia type of program, but should still strive to be the best it can possibly be.
