AE 87: Yes, we have had some bad coaches over the past 25 years, that is obvious, but Tech and winning goes back much further than that. I want the kind of winning we had with the first three coaches. It is also obvious, the article left off the records of the first three coaches. Personally, I don't want Tech to be judged by the past 25 years, I want it to return to the era when we won consistently.
Two of those first 3 coaches have significant trophies named in their honor.
Those are pretty big shoes to fill for anyone. To have a 70% winning percentage today, we'd need to average 8-9 wins/season, which would be an impressive feat at any school. Given the landscape of today's game and the academic rigor at Tech, can we consistently bring in and coach up enough talent to average 8-9 wins/season? I would hope we could, but history isn't on our side.
