Georgia Tech AD Dan Radakovich shoos away all the black helicopters hovering over the Flats in the wake of the postponement of Tech-Alabama series.
Yes, Jacket fans, it was his call.
… Radakovich said he contacted Alabama athletics director Mal Moore in December to discuss postponing the series because at the time he was considering some attractive alternatives that would help Tech’s recruiting efforts, as well as balance their schedule. He declined to say what those alternatives were.
And this has got to be disheartening for yellow-tinged conspiracy theorists everywhere:
Radakovich debunked the numerous theories that have been pushed during the past few days. The postponement has nothing to do with any kind of super-conference possibilities and it has nothing to do with coach Paul Johnson’s displeasure with the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game played at the Georgia Dome at the beginning of the season, which he said has given those schools a recruiting advantage in Atlanta…
And what about what everyone else thinks? Well, you can probably guess.
… Lastly, no, Tech isn’t afraid to play the Tide.
“We have the greatest respect for the University of Alabama and their football program,” Radakovich said. “Playing them would be a lot of fun.”
Sure would. At least from my selfish standpoint.
