Dog, we hardly knew ye.

When AJ Suggs is the highwater mark for quarterback productivity under your regime, it’s way past time to start asking some tough questions about what Georgia Tech’s staff does to develop players at that position.

Here’s the chart:

 Player, year Completion pct. Yds/game TDs Ints Rating

A.J. Suggs, 2002 57.3 172.5 15 12 111.8

Reggie Ball, 2004 49.7 178.9 16 18 109.4

Reggie Ball, 2006 44.4 140.0 20 14 107.2

Reggie Ball, 2003 51.7 153.5 10 11 102.8

Taylor Bennett, 2007 50.4 166.0 2 7 100.0

Reggie Ball, 2005 48.0 196.8 11 12 99.3

Just to give you an idea of how craptastic that is (although seeing that he’s 12th out of 12 in the ACC should give some indication), Taylor Bennett’s name doesn’t show up on the list of the top 100 QBs in the country in passing efficiency.

    It appears that Chan was not as dumb as all the Techie fans thought for playing Ball all those years. They sure do miss Godsey and Hamilton.

  2. Wow, Game Ball’s completion percentage really did manage to get worse every single year.

    I know all of us Bulldog fans always say we hope Gailey never leaves, but from a Georgia fan’s perspective, this would be a perfect year for them to fire him. With all the high-profile jobs that are almost certainly going to come open at the end of this season, how would Tech compete for the top coaching talent? If you know that Nebraska, TAMU, LSU, UCLA, etc. are all available, and think you have a shot, why would you even give GT a second thought?

    Speaking of which, it looks like the TAMU HC job may already be in play. One can only hope that’s a distraction for a certain team from Alabama as it prepares for a big SEC matchup this Saturday.
