This stings.

From Paul Myerberg’s spring practice look at Georgia Tech comes this observation about how the Jackets need somebody to step up at nose tackle this season:

… If Barnes does play at an all-conference level — something he is capable of doing — keep an eye on the trickle-down effect. Barnes clogs up the middle of the line; that frees up linebackers Quayshawn Nealy and Jeremiah Attaochu to make plays on the second level.

The linebackers can move freely; the pass rush improves. The Jackets do a better job getting to the quarterback — get pressure like Georgia gets pressure, though that’s a painful comparison; the secondary, deep and experienced, forces turnovers in the passing game. It can happen, but it all starts with Barnes… [Emphasis added.]

    Let’s see. They compete in this state and are located in Atlanta where the most football players are concentrated and how many recruits do they have for 2013?

    Zero.

    Picky, picky,picky.

  5. CPJ is deporting Myerberg to Walmart. LOL

    What stings many of us alums. The poor performance and achievements of some programs in Athens. In particular at this time of the year. The AD needs to give a close look at the baseball program. They drop 2 against Vandy. There are some outstanding baseball players in this state. But Perno can not manage or coach a roster. He admitted he mishandled Saturday’s game. We have heard this before. Andy Landers. He gets it so far and he can not push it over. It has been like this for awhile. It is not getting better.

    Seems once an AD gets it place he fires some rec department coach and thinks we are all satisfied with the programs in Athens. Apparently, the current AD is overrated and willingly accepts mediocre programs.

    There is no bark or bite in many of these high profile programs anymore.

      The same baseball program that went to the post season last year?

      I know I am just cutting and pasting here. But they look pretty good to me.

      Andy Landers
      “Today, his average of 24.4 wins per season ranks fourth among all active Division I women’s basketball head coaches, as do his 789 total victories. Of the fourteen Division I women’s basketball head coaches to reach 600 wins, Landers made it the fifth-quickest, surpassing the mark after only 784 games. Landers is a member of the ninth group of inductees (the
      class of 2007) in the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame.[2]

      In NCAA women’s basketball, he is the winningest coach to have never won an NCAA championship.”

      David Perno …. starting his ninth year.
      “Championships
      2 SEC Championships
      5 NCAA Regionals
      3 Super Regionals
      3 College World Series
      1 CWS finals appearance
      Awards
      2004 Baseball America Coach of the Year
      2008 SEC Coach of the Year”

        “…he is the winningest coach to have never won an NCAA championship.” seems to be a theme in Athens.

    Please vote for Herschel Walker for the cover of NCAA 13 on facebook. Let’s show our support dawg fans!

  10. Russ

    but won’t that just curse him and cause him to miss next season?

  11. Cojones

    Highjacked to Dawg negativity and rebuttals.

    Focus Dawgs! This is about the epic failure nerds and their year of validation as such. Focus!

    Poor bastards need a reach in print to pick their head up out of the dirt and you’re gonna let’em? Their Barnes could come tumbling down and then what do they have? The article that the Senator put in front of our faces props poorly or worse for Tech as the ESPN article trying to prop Tenn having a team left after all their defections. Cheez!
