I had only ever heard part of that story. That sucks apples. What's the protocol for impeaching a school president?The problem isn't Bobinski. The problem is the school president. So far, he has caved to every argument on the side of academia over athletics since he has been with Tech.
And, for the record, Radakovich DID initially try to go that route and the president of the school not only shot him down, he did so in a way to publicly embarass him in front of many others in a meeting. It was at that point that Radakovich began listening to other offers.
[quote="LibertyTurns, post: 22229, member: 789"Stanford is a private school. They don't have the kind of BOR/self-imposed restrictions GT has to deal with. I'm sure Bobinski would love to have their situation at GT.
GTDrew has a point...They have so many other majors to offer than we do that are much easier and not as math/science based. However, yes Stanford is harder to get into. They do have wayy more support for things like exceptions and how hard it is to receive one.
The point isn't that those classes are brutal. It's that at other places, they don't have to take them at all...Is Business Admin really "math & science based"?
The one yr. of science that our FB players take is Earth & Atmospheric Science.
Finite math and Survey of Calc.?
Can someone explain to me why a lot of GT fans have a huge case of Stanford Penis Envy? Stanford's program is nearly identical to GT's, a mostly academic oriented school that plays in a major conference with a number of football factories. Stanford has Pop Warner, GT has John Heisman plus Bobby Dodd. I've seen both up close- Stanford twice. Outside of Stanford's recent success they haven't been a good team since before I was born, outside of a couple of years here and there and the 1990 Nat'l Champ season so has GT.
Frankly I think it's either the "everybody's a winner and gets a trophy" BS or the instant gratification/McDonalds culture at work here. Doesn't anyone want to work for anything any more? There's a disturbing trend amongst fans that thinks you can just wave some magic wand and GT will go 14-0 from that point on. Amazing.
With all due respect, I would love for tech to be"successful" for 5 or 6 years in a row regardless of who's team was struggling
Hmmm why would a WR come to Tech? Let's see single coverage 90% of the time, knowing how block from the WR position is a prerequisite plus being highly valued by NFL coaches/GMs and did I mention single coverage/explosive plays? Why would a back come to Tech to play B Back? Could it be the every time you carry the ball you have a chance to take it to the house if you beat one player at the 2nd level? Or could it be the ability to gain huge yardage on fewer carries than a pro set style back? Why would a back come to Tech to be an A back? Could it be to get touches both as a ball carrier and a receiver or could it be to learn how to block from a back set as well as a down field receiver? Or perhaps to showcase your skills even if you don't have the "ideal" size? And one last note as the NFL evolves more to a spread option attacks a true dual threat QB will be sought after more and more so if you have the talent as a QB there is no reason not to consider Tech.
WELL lets see...if you want to catch the ball who is going to throw it to you? If you are going to throw as a Qb how many times will you run the pitch and option and go head to head with Big Hubbard.yes you may convince them of the strengths od running etc but when you look at this offense and you have never ran this scheme you really will have to be sold on it when you compare it to other schemes. I think we don't have the folks to run this offense and until we do get ready of more of the same.
