The genius of courage

Georgia Tech’s AD is on a mission.

The sense that Georgia Tech’s teams can be winning more — athletic director Mike Bobinski thinks it, too.

“On an across-the-board performance level, I don’t know that we’re where we would like to be in anything at this point in time, or where I think we’re capable of,” he said.

He didn’t name teams, but finding examples isn’t difficult. Of the school’s two most prominent teams, one experienced its worst season since 1994 (football) and Bobinski replaced the coach in the other (men’s basketball). To address that and other challenges, Bobinski has led a project that was presented to the athletic-department staff Tuesday…

Bobinski said he saw the need for a comprehensive statement of mission, core values and goals…

Luckily for Bobinski, Paul Johnson’s already on the whole mission, core values and goals mother.

On how often Georgia Tech should play Georgia Southern: “Once about every 30 years.”

That’s so Chantastic.

  1. I like those nerds and bugs to win 0 forever.

    I’ve abandoned my attempts to register a dummy/lurker account at the “new” StingTalk. My first attempt was unsuccessful, and I even got a coworker to try on my behalf. No dice. The guy who runs that place apparently set up so his little “arrested development set” — i.e., the half-dozen or so “mean nerd girls” who were the only real commenters there — can continue their circle jerk unimpeded by outside interference.

    Core Value 1: Pay for performance. Six-year extensions when the opponent brain-farts a game is probably not the path to success.

    Core Value 2: It’s always Mike Bobinki’s fault.

    Wow, way to support the program that gave you your career, Paul. Georgia plays Southern all the time. And now that they’re good enough to scare Tech (and scare the hell out of a bad Georgia team, too) you only want to play them once every 30 years? Man.

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Bless their hearts.

    Tech is so sad. I am glad to have CFB kicking off at 7:30 am on Gameday 1 though, so, thanks for that!


  7. The Tekis are so fixated with Georgia:
    Unifying Purpose: “to hell with Georgia”
    Core value1: “to hell with Georgia”
    Core value2: “to hell with Georgia”
    That’s the reason GT is sliding down to hell.
