The genius sounds a mite bit perturbed with the ACC scheduling office.
On the plus side, at least he’s got his excuse ready when Tech finishes the season 7-5.

Given how top-to-bottom mediocre the ACC’s been over the last few years, quibbling over which order your opponents are coming in really seems like splitting hairs. And yeah, the Jackets are getting a short week before Virginia Tech, but the Hokies are stuck with the same short week, so who cares?
Plus, I thought the conventional wisdom is that a short week favors GT, because there’s less time for the opponent to prepare for the triple-option.
That’s why I picked the option team to lose in every bowl game in the office pool, with high confience levels. If not for Kiffykins, I would have won the thing.
Obviously you are not a genius.
Yes, VT has the same short week, but it comes after three straight cupcakes while Tech will be coming off two straight conference games.
In fairness, I think I can assume there would be some grumbling around these parts if UGA found themselves in a similar situation.
Ture enough. PJ has a legitimate beef. This is the price of being one of the higher regarded teams in a lowly regarded conference…they want you out there in television land. Take it for the ACC, Nerds.
“Ture enouhg”…sorry, “True”. Need another cup.
ESPN does seem to have a love affair with Virginia Tech.
I never really understood why.
Equivalent to picking up an ugly girl at closing time. Virginia Tech may be about 20 pounds overweight, but on Thursday night, ESPN will take her home.
“Yes, VT has the same short week, but it comes after three straight cupcakes while Tech will be coming off two straight conference games.”
Is your point that VT has one more cupcake than GT?
My thought exactly.
No I wouldn’t complain about the scheduling, UGA would win the ACC every year if we played in that pathetic excuse of a conference. It’s the ACC, winners of 3, count ’em, 3 BCS games, ever. The conference sucks and has sucked for a long time, top to bottom, I stand by this statement even if we lose to Clemson this year. It’s the reason VT had the same script, every year, lose to someone like ECU or James Madison, win the ACC against mediocre competition, get brains kicked in when they play a legit OOC team usually in the Orange Bowl. If FSU, Clemson, or Miami ever get their shit together they’d go undefeated in the ACC every year, hell that’s what FSU used to do. It’s one of the small pleasures in life as a UGA fan: knowing that Tech is firmly middle of the pack in the worst conference in America.
Love the fact that Pitt plays Navy the week before GT.
Advantage Genius, right?
Of course, as we heard about our game against Southern, that just gives Paul film on how you’ll defend him.
Is this the same league that lobbied for them to have a bowl game at 6-7? A-Holes!
Tech doesn’t like Thursday night games?
I remember a few years back (2009? something like that) when GTU opened their season against Jax State on a Thursday. It wasn’t on ESPN, there was no pressure from the conference, etc. They just wanted to play on Thursday so they wouldn’t play in Atl on the same day as the game at the Ga Dome.
The excuse I heard from Tech “fans” that day was that they LOVE Thursday night games, even without TV.
They are a joke, as always.
Only if it’s the week of Dragon Con. That way they don’t screw up their Saturday of festivities at the convention.
This quote comes to mind –
“Your shower shoes have fungus on them. You’ll never make it to the bigs with fungus on your shower shoes. Think classy, you’ll be classy. Win 20 in the show, you can let the fungus grow back and the press’ll think you’re colorful. Until you win 20 in the show, however, it only means you are a slob.”
Somewhere, Spurrier is reading this news story, thinking of this quote and having a chuckle.
Because it’s Spring Training so it’s no country for old men players, the local juice shops down here are so busy with the kids that they don’t have time to adjust the Austenaproxen, Capotex, Kafkabien, Leexapro, Newberry Extract, Oprahdone, Orwellbutrin, Proustzac, Randocaine, Spillagra and Strunketamine levels for Crash so he can pass the tests for Banned Performance Enhancing Substances in Literary Competitions and the Grapefruit League
… at least he’s got his excuse ready…
Say what you want about the guy, but he sure knows how to cling tenaciously to a job… He’s like some kind of squat, muscular dog with an over-sized mouth and jaws of steel.
Long may he reign.
Like, um, a bulldog?
CDTT just didn’t want to get punched in the face.
I’m just saying we may soon need a level beyond “Chantastic.”
That would be “Super Chantastic”.
Senator, you are a true visionary.
What about Gailey, Johnson and Ball’s Indoor Practice Facility, coming in 2020?
Does the football coach at Tech (and formerly at Navy) really not understand how computers and algorithms work? I seriously doubt “random” was a programming priority.
I guess this disproves Pat Dye’s “Campus Osmosis” theory of learning.
From the artticle:
“Just randomly by computer, I imagine,” Johnson said with sarcasm.
What are they bitching about? I mean, they only have to play the other teams in the AY SHE SHEE, right?
Even The Dude hesitates to ask about him
Oh no! Not Virginia Tech!
The Chokies lost to Pitt last year, something that Youngstown State didn’t do. They suck.
It’s very possible that GT won’t face a single ranked team until they play Clemson in mid-November. VT (Alabama) and Miami (Florida) should both pick up early losses, so they’ll be barely ranked, if at all, by the time they face GT.
B1G don’t play on Thursdays.
Or Saturdays, for that matter
