Help a genius out.

When the AJ-C throws you a fastball down the middle with a header like this, you’ve got to turn on it.

Suggestions are more than welcome in the comments.  Do it for the Johnson Doctrine.

    Come to Tech, son. If we beat Middle Tennessee State, I’ll take the team to the Varsity for chili dogs.

    Come to Tech son. None of that co-ed distraction stuff you have to fight to resist elsewhere.

  3. Doug

    You want to win a division title someday, don’tcha, son? There’s no easier place to do it than in the ACC. Hell, WE did it just last year, sort of.

  4. Normaltown Mike

    Whatya mean you haven’t heard of the Mini-500?

  5. I wanna Red Cup

    Son, you’re not good enough to play at the next level. So come play for Tech. No need to look at any other school and if you do we don’t want you. I know what’s best for you. Trust me, like Bradley says, I’m a genius

    Am I the only one who thinks he’ll be outta there at the next best opportunity? I know he’s prickly on a good day, but he hasn’t appeared to be having any fun at all on that job the last 2-3 years. Not that anyone could, necessarily…

      He will be fired after Aaron Murray has his best passing day ever on the Flats on Thanksgiving weekend. If we lay another haymaker on them (which we will), Tech fans will have seen enough. Most of them already have after the last two years. We all know that they measure their entire program vs. UGA, which is always hilarious. And the gap is only widening.

      But I hope that they keep the Genius forever. They will forever be mired in mediocre results (at best). Long after he is gone, the Chantastic results on the field live on.

    Paul observers (4) met for four minutes to come up with four choices on the meaning of, “Unless you’re Calvin, when you’re finished playing, you’ve still got to work.”:

    a. Paul’s interpretation of the Coolidge Doctrine, “Duty is not collective; it is personal.” Calvin Coolidge, circa sometime.

    b. Paul’s interpretation of the Matthew Stafford Doctrine, “Stafford to Megatron,” circa being short of first down;

    c. Paul’s interpretation of the Pol Pot Doctrine, “‘macabre, bare-bones,’ ‘chemically pure’ ideology of the Angkar,” Pol, circa a killing break;

    d. What Paul does when he looks for the University of The SEC.

      DiF = I seriously don’t know how you do it. I’ve enjoyed you for years, I respect you, but man we are on two different wavelengths. You leave me spinning at times…and I say that with my near perfect record of heterosexuality.

      • HahiraDawg

        …that was a joke ya’ll!

          Remember to put a smiley face there and you won’t have to explain. Sometimes it’s fun to place one nonsensically and imagine the reader head-scratching.

          I still have one of DIF’s references (goblinbooks) in my Favorites. Rummage around and you may find the story of the squirrel (monologue) committing suicide. When he isn’t bringing up uber-fresh funny and true stories about the Gov of Fl (Scott), he’s rummaging around in finding good stuff to reference.

    Paul Johnson’s pitch to recruits: Come for the calculus. Stay for the in-season directional schools (oops. Maybe not Middle Tennessee State) and mid-December bowl games!

    Really, I hear Boise and Shreveport and some high school field in Oakland are LOVELY in mid-December. If you’re a QB who can’t throw, or an OL who can’t pass block, or a WR who would rather block 65 times a game than run pass routes, or a TE who’d like to play some other position (because no such position exists at GTU), come to the Joke By Coke! If you’re a defensive player who doesn’t like getting all hung up on statistics like “average yards surrendered” or “points surrendered” or “wins,” and you like getting cut blocked at practice every day for the next four or five years, come to the Joke By Coke! If you like the excitement of watching big games between highly ranked teams on fall Saturdays, GTU is the place for you! Because GTU plays a lot of Thursday Night Fever games, and you’ll be available for a relaxing day in front of the tv on Saturday, watching all the GOOD teams play. Heck, because Atlanta is centrally located in the south, you may even be able to go see some of those good games in person!!!! Delta is ready when you are! I guess PJ really IS a genius; there really IS a lot to do in Atlanta (or near Atlanta) in the fall, for sure.

    After the games, all the Cokes and hotdogs you want. We’ll have leftovers.

  12. Marshall

    Because we are, at least for the time being, still a better destination than Georgia State!

    • Mayor of Dawgtown

      Really? The co-eds look better at GA State. It won’t be long before GA State is regularly winning more games than GT, too.

    “Son, I have seen more than my fair share of one to two star athletes come through here. So I know one when I see one. And son, you are one.”

    Georgia Tech football practically sells itself (to marginal at best players).

    Look you already know the playbook, you used it in PEE WEE football.

    The most telling thing is the comments made by Nerds (posted below the story). They seem contented with the status quo..which is a declining football program coached by an unchanging, hard headed man that’s stuck in the past, while spinning the old saw that ” GT is superior academically”. It’s the lullaby they sleep to. It’s really amazing what they have come to accept. As GT moves farther and farther away from what it once was (an SEC school with a respectable program in a safe city with a Southern base and heritage), it will become less and less relevant as a football name. Bobby Dodd is just a slowly fading memory.

    • Dog in Fla

      Was Atlanta safe in the ’60’s? If so, was that before the Perimeter? The Dodd’s are good but the goods aren’t Dodd?

      • Mayor of Dawgtown

        A friend of mine from HS who played football at Tech got knifed on campus in ’68.

      • Cojones

        Using Dodd’s name in vain is sure to get a rise from the NATS. Thought they would get over that after they named a Dam after him.

    “Hey, you’re in a great city (pay no attention to the crack-heads hitting you up for money on your way to practice), you can get a world-class education (for a semester, then it’s the M-Train baybee) and you play on the highest level (for one game at end of each season).”

    Sign me up.

  17. Spike

    And you may get a ring if we beat UGA, er check that , Middle Tennesse State…

  18. Cojones

    It seems to have been missed that Calvin is the only player he can mention and the reason is due to a former UGA player who tosses the ball to him.

      Also, recruited by Chan.

    • There’s plenty to bash Tech about without pretending Stafford makes CJ good. CJ was good when Reggie was slanging the rock to him. Lets stay above board in our intellectual honestly lest we be a guilty as the Hive

      • Cojones

        I think he was referring to Calvin in the Pros as part of his sales pitch that says “You won’t be able to play in the Pros like Calvin because you are untalented and came to GT” as a sales pitch. Think that Calvin can certainly appreciate the fact that Staff is helping him get more press by getting the ball to him. I wasn’t denigrating Calvin, rather pissing on Paul’s parade.

        I didn’t understand your reference to “intellectual honesty”. Did I do something to you as a child? I know! Didn’t put a smiley face there to tell you it was sarcasm.🙂 Fixed.

  19. Fan of history? Come to Tech and watch your highlights in black & white. It’ll be like you are in the 1930s!

    With your help son, we might be able to engineer a scoring drive.
