Maybe these nerds will finally hire a football coach that can win them something and make GT and the ACC competitive again.


Then again, they are a bunch of nerds with no love for sports and no talent for business, so I doubt it.

GT. And just like GT, Drad has done an absolute #### job as our AD. One of the worst hiring decisions Clemson has ever made. I cant believe we hired this a$$clown.

You must hate the improvements we've seen in multiple programs during his time at Clemson, including the two most popular/important, football and basketball. You must also hate all of the great new facilities we have built under his watch.

Someone correct me if I am wrong, but didn't DRad come in and affirm FB as #1 and give Dabo what he needed to take the next step.

I just hope that GT, Louisville, and FSU will get back to being very competitive for the sake of our SOS and helping us in playing tough games in our conference before having to wait to play tougher teams in the playoffs....

I know you hear people call North Carolina a "sleeping giant" and you here other schools called similar but to me Georgia Tech may fit that billing more than any other school. In that state, even getting the guys UGA don't recruit real hard you can build a winner. With the lack of talent Paul Johnson has recruited and running a high school offense he really hasn't been that bad at GT. With GT's academic stature and football history and with a little investment into facilities and upgrades there is absolutely no reason why GT shouldn't challenge for the Coastal every year or every other year. To me I wish Paul would coach 20 more years. The last thing I want is for our permanent cross division rival to get a competent head coach because I do think GT can be really really good with the right guy.


I agree 100%

The other thing that GT has over UNC is a history in football. In think in this day and age GT should be at a severe disadvantage to Georgia and Clemson; but they should be much better than they are today. So much talent in Atlanta, picking up Clemson and UGA scraps should still field a good team without a gimmick offense. GT, Miami, VT.... one of them gets right and they become the Clemson of the Coastal (however, my money would be one Miami or VT).

If I'm not mistaking, GT has beat us more that any team in college FB, and I think that is true!!!

then they just took a rag soaked in chloroform and smothered their own face in it. But I agree, GT can be a threat with the right guy at the helm, but the question is, do they care enough to find that guy?

Then their next guy better be able to coach his recruits about another 200 points on their SAT. If brains grew on trees, sons of Grapefruit Farmers would be at MIT...

I think folks have forgotten, we’v only been in full control of this rivalry for the last few years. In prior years, GT was almost always a formidable foe. I’m pretty sure they have a National Title or two also. P.J. is a good football coach, his scheme is simply too archaic to attract the better D1 prospects. They’ve been good in the past, and I agree TA, they will likely be good again in the near future.

I think that would be great place to start out as a HC for Tony with him loving the run game as much as he does!!! And not that far down down the road from Dabo and all of his close friends!!!

Become competitive again, and we have to play them every year. I was hoping Johnson would stay for another 10 years.

It seems like Paul Johnson retired about 3 years ago. This just formalizes it.

The right Coach could do some real damage there (imagine Mike Leach). Tech, as an institution, would need to decide it wants to be a football school again - the same way Clemson had to just a few years back. Their facilities need some updating for sure.

Atlanta has a lot to offer, especially compared to the mostly rural competition in the ACC. Diluting UGA's talent would be nice too.


Re: TNET: Paul Johnson expected to retire


Posted: Nov 29, 2018 3:43 AM
 

Don't want it to dilute our talent though, we get a lot players from GA. Hate to see Johnson go...Venables owned him.

I don't/can't listen to WCCP any more since we moved to Lake Murray, but what will Walt Deptula do now that his coaching idol is stepping away. His man-love for PJ was quite something to behold!
