I’ve tried to make sure you guys know that the publication of the first fifty entries in GTP’s lexicon is not an end. Quite the opposite, in fact. Today marks its first addition.
My muse is Georgia Tech AD Dan Radakovich, who spreads this manure in his May 6th edition of “The Good Word”:
… Indeed, the world of football scheduling is difficult and ever-changing. While we desire to play quality opponents, we must look at creating balance to allow our team the ability to peak at the proper time and give our team the best chance to win. It is an art rather than a science and as Tech fans you must understand that we are doing everything possible to create the correct balance to allow for continued long-term success in our program.
I give the folks at Barrel of Rum credit for calling a spade a spade when they post
… Let’s cut the bullshit here. We bailed because we don’t want the potential loss. There, I said it. It’s not “balance” we’re seeking as the Bama games in 2013 & 2014 actually gave us balance…
Here’s Dan’s theme song.
And here’s the new baby.
- Creating balance (v.) – dropping a formidable opponent from a school’s schedule to avoid an almost certain defeat.
