From the AJ-C’s transcript of this week’s Paul Johnson presser comes this:
On the mental and physical toughness of the team
“I think it is a process. Some individuals have that toughness and some do not. You are always striving to be tougher. I don’t think there is one thing that you can lay on. We are 5-5, we haven’t been as successful as we have liked to be, but there isn’t one thing that you can’t point to. I think it is a myriad of things. I had a guy tell me last night that we had an easy schedule. Either I am from planet Krypton, or I don’t get it. We have had to play North Carolina, Clemson, Virginia Tech and Georgia on the road and to me that is not an easy schedule. If you look at our schedule, we lost to Kansas which is a bad loss. Clemson is the only other team that we lost to that is not fighting for a conference championship or isn’t going to win eight or nine games. There is a lot of parody, but there are also some good teams. Talent wise, Miami was the best team that we have played all year based on who they had. I am not trying to rationalize, I am not happy on where we are. But it is what it is.” [Emphasis added.]
I’m fairly certain Johnson said “parity” there, but maybe Doug Roberson’s watched a lot more ACC football this year than Johnson has. Parody works for me.
By the way, nice to see the coach in touch with his fan base with that planet Krypton reference.

Using North Carolina Clemson , and Georgia as examples of how tough his schedule is?
They must do parody well on Krypton.
Relying on the spell check to proof read again. Tsk, tsk, tsk.
I had alien on a property once. Looked everywhere, couldn’t find the critter.
“I had alien on a property once. Looked everywhere, couldn’t find the critter.”
took me a minute, but finally got it!
If everyone sucks that is also a type of parity
NOT a typo. Spellcheck catches those. Parody is a real word…which is what the AJC has become. A parody of a big-city paper.
We call it an embedded typo. Still a typo, but spell check can’t find it.
Wrong wrong wrong.
Tech is an engineering school. Ergo, it is being used in its mathematical context.
In mathematics, the parity of an object states whether it is even or odd.
…and there is a lot of odd at Georgia Tech. That’s why we prefer the girls here.
Not that there is anything wrong with that.
Heh. I saw that too.
The old Ga Tech Beesball site used to link to articles in ” a local ‘newspaper’ [sic].” Indeed.
There’s a reason they’re going out of business.
Just from reading his comments, apparently Johnson’s not aware that the ACC sucks and he hasn’t beaten anyone of consequence. I mean, your biggest win this year is over a UNC team that’s been gutted by the NCAA. At least Richt acknowledges that the ‘Dawgs have serious issues. Johnson acts like Tech fans should be grateful for where they are.
