Mark Bradley hasn’t come to bury Paul Johnson’s contract extension.

He’s come to fellate it.  And so you don’t have to waste your time reading his kiss-assery — honestly, the more praise in that direction, the merrier, as far as I’m concerned — just catch the lazy, reflexive nip he takes at Georgia:

Station Kirby Smart at a school where calculus is a requirement and see how many 5-stars he signs.

Yeah, put the genius some place where his warm and fuzzy personality wouldn’t be handicapped by those damned academics and watch the magic begin.

    “Johnson’s .300 winning percentage against the Bulldogs mightn’t sound like much, but it trumps the .230 clip that endured from 1978 until his arrival.”

    Can we build Coach Johnson a statue already?

    Tyrone Sorrells still says that Calculus thing is a bunch of bullshit.


    • Russ

      Ditto Reggie “The greatest non-Bulldog ever” Ball. Third down? Fourth down? What’s the difference?


    • atlasshrugged55

      Poor Tyrone, he tried to walk home to Buford from Athens. He better be glad Scott Williams drove out to the GA Mall to pick him up & bring him back to McWhorter.

    That irrelevant “station Kirby Smart at a school where calculus is a requirement” line makes me want to reply with “…and if my aunt had balls, she’d be my uncle.”

    Did they have to take calculus at Navy? I dont remember him going to the rose bowl there either?


    • Napoleon BonerFart

      Navy was the perfect school for Johnson. Johnson’s scheme helps mitigate the talent deficit his teams face. At Navy, kids aren’t looking for a conduit to the NFL, so his recruiting skills aren’t as much of a hindrance.

      Unfortunately for him, he’s now at a P5 school where recruiting matters. You can’t sell a kid to go to Tech for his country. Frankly, Afghanistan may look like the better option to some high school kids.


  6. Is anyone sure that Bradley doesn’t post on stingtalk under the moniker GeniusLover or something like that? Fish Fry couldn’t recruit 5-stars to play for him in Athens, Tuscaloosa, Auburn, Gainesville, Clemson, or anywhere else for that matter with that high school/service academy offense of his.

    I wonder if Joe Hamilton took calculus …


    • RandallPinkFloyd

      Joe Ham is on 680 every now and then. He came right out and said if you’re NCAA eligible you can get into Tech and have no issue remaining at Tech. He said they’re just like every other school.

    Because Stanford doesn’t offer calculus is the only reason they are ever ranked.

    That slobber job got Mark all of 4 comments. AJC comment threads used to hit triple-digits, easy.

    I love this belief of “oh if they’re good at sports, there’s no way they can be good in the classroom too”


  10. Napoleon BonerFart

    I guess Bradley has forgotten that Tech is less than a year removed from probation.


  11. The other Doug

    Not all Tech grads have to take calculus. Here are the requirements for International Affairs:

    Notice they can take calc or fake calc.


    • stoopnagle

      How many of our players do you think are international affairs majors?


      • DoubleDawg1318

        As an IA major at UGA, I can say with confidence there were none at the time I was enrolled a few years ago.


    • Just Chuck (The Other One)

      A friend from my high school class was once a student at the University of Virginia. He told me a story about a calculus class he took there. It seems that, on the first day of class, the professor announced, “You may have heard that in the School of Education there is a course called ‘calculus made easy’. This is calculus made hard.” He assured me it was.


  12. Macallanlover

    Truthfully, every significant D1 school is guilty of fudging/cheating. Stanford at least requires the athlete to be admitted before offering a scholly. Until students are admitted with the admissions group only having the academic record and a SS#, there will be some playing around with admissions. Until then, only the service academies have a true disadvantage in attracting athletes, and they deserve our respect.

    Wasn’t it GT who had athletes take courses at other Atlanta area schools, and also had years of penalties for academic cheating and had to vacate wins? Bradley is as dumb as the remainder of the AJC staff. What about Johnson’s personality makes him think he would be a great recruiter for any school, under any circumstances?


  13. Brandon

    I legit LOL’D at your opening to this post.


  14. Bright Idea

    I’m still stuck on Fish Fry saying he might not fulfill the 5 years while his agent says he needs it for recruiting, and Stansbury bit. That same comment sunk Spurrier.


    • Cousin Eddie

      But if Fish Fry’s recruiting gets any worse he will just be begging kids around campus to sign. So that comment won’t hurt and in fact knowing he is leaving sooner might be a bonus.


  15. stoopnagle

    JFC. Kirby would do what Tech already does. Have them all climb aboard the M-train and take Calc at Atlanta Metro.

    USG Transfer Articulation Policy FTW.

    Tech can set aside the calculus excuse already and just admit that they suck.


  16. I thought it was a bunch of left handed compliments. He can’t win, he’s the best they can do. They can’t win, so don’t worry, be happy.


  17. BMan

    I don’t remember which one of the calculus-taking Austin derivatives got knocked the F out on video in the locker room last year. Was that d-y or d-x?


  18. Bulldog Joe

    Tech is still paying Paul Hewitt for his 2004 Final Four appearance. LOL.

    I thought they were supposed to be good at math.


  19. Scorpio Jones, III

    Bradley should have auditioned for Breitbart when Breitbart was relevant.


  20. rwphonics

    If Kirby was at Tech he’d probably get the requirement changed (see State Legislature).

    Dear Senator,
    I have a degree in Ag. Economics, a degree in Chemistry and a degree in Pharmacy.
    Please tell Mark Bradley
    TO KISS MY ASS. Thanks.

  22. I appreciate the fine work of the Senator for clicking the link on our behalf. I refuse to click or open anything AJC-related after cancelling a few years ago. Best money saved. Oh, Tech sucks balls!
