The Johnson Doctrine is alive and well, in all its hypocritical glory.

The genius stole one of Virginia’s recruits away this past week.  Sayeth the kid,

“(Paul Johnson) was happy,” Curry said. “He has very strict rules on committing and not going other places. So his rule is ‘You commit to us, and you don’t visit anywhere else.’ I can see how it might’ve been a little weird for me to visit and be committed somewhere else.

You can see how that might be a little weird?  Yeah, that’s a polite way of putting it.

    “And I just decided that I wanted to stick home so that all my family and friends could come watch me”. – and there should be more than enough tickets to go around.

    Sigh….youse guys clearly do not understand TheJohnson Rule. It’s when you commit to Tech that the commitment is a big deal and a law and all…if you are committed to some other team, that don’t count.


  3. I bet CPJ was one of those kids that grabbed his ball and went home when things did not go his way back in the day.

    About how many Georgia HS players get FBS offers? The article said this guy is no. 168 in the state. Does that usually rate an FBS offer?

    I think Johnson doesn’t want kids to visit anywhere else after committing because he is afraid they will see what a real college and real college girls look like if they visit somewhere besides tech.

    They deserve each other.
