A genius at interior design

I don’t know if this is mere tongue-and-cheek stuff from Jeff Schultz ($$) — it’s almost too perfect in its arrogance, to be honest — but I sure hope it’s real.

Johnson was so amused by his third win in five appearances in Athens that, amid the postgame celebration in the locker room, with Gov. Nathan Deal present for the Governor’s Trophy celebration, he stood and kept looking up at the walls of the room. When somebody finally asked him why, he responded that he was wondering where Georgia would hang a sign that read “The Paul Johnson Visiting Locker Room.”

How a guy coaching a program that’s been literally owned by Georgia football at BDS since Mark Richt’s first season has the balls to think like that… well, like I said, I hope that’s an actual quote.  Even if it’s not, that I could seeing it being so says about as much, anyway.

    I’m still scratching my head over the narrative this week about Tech’s recent success in Sanford. Next year we need a headcount on Tech players that weren’t born when Tech last been Georgia at BDS.

    What’s the record for most 4th down conversion attempts? I thought it might be endangered yesterday.

    If they’d be willing to rename their field after Mark Richt then UGA should consider making that trade.

    “We’re 3–3 at Sanford Stadium” is Tech’s version of the Gators’ “We stopped them six times on goal-to-go [in the course of a 36–17 loss].”

    If they keep letting him stick around for 7-win seasons, and we keep smashing them in this newfangled CKS era, I like the chances of his attitude changing.

    He’s horrible. And he stokes the hate, at least as far as I’m concerned, more than just any any GT coach in the last 30 years because of his arrogance. I’ll never tire of watching the failure of his precious high school offense.

    Notice that Mullen and Turkey Neck are similar in that the other team “never” beats them or is better than they are? Two delusional self-righteous assholes!!!!!!!!!!

    He needs to clean up his on-field language.
    Also, he needs to quit blaming his players. I saw where he blamed them a couple of times. Any decent coach will blame himself in front of the cameras or microphones…and deal with his players in private.
    It’s his team. He recruited it, built it and pilots it.
    Also, a lot of GT (see stingtalk) nerds are upset that Marshall was yucking it up with the Georgia players after the loss. Personally, I was kind of inspired by a young man that can shake it off after the last whistle and get on with enjoying the experience,
    I’m telling you what…CPJ is like the setting sun at GT…I think he’s done.

      At halftime he was throwing his defense under the bus too. That’s after his O got shut out the first half!

      • Loved it when they had the ball for close to 9 minutes in the 3rd quarter, mustered 40 yards, and had nothing to show for it. Yeah, it’s all on the defense (the)Johnson

    There’s something that annoys me to an unending degree when he is all but whispering the playcall into the QBs ear and gives that sort of shove onto the field as the player is running out. I have no idea why it bothers me so much but every time I see it I cringe. I think it’s because it looks like he is coaching pee wee football players, guiding them on the direction they’re supposed to run onto the field. Of course, these are college players so I guess it reflects his arrogance and makes me kinda feel bad for the Tech QB because it’s kinda demeaning and I don’t like feeling sorry for Tech QBs under any circumstances.

      The whole thing reminds me of my days as a 6th grade wingback. I maybe got the ball 10 times the whole season, but i could relay a play in from the sidelines with the best of them.

  12. PJ has won 3 games in Athens by a total of 10 points, and all 3 took something weird/random/stupid.

    Maybe you could argue that 2008 was clean, but I’d argue that Samuel’s fumble was just a worst case scenario.

    Even for someone as thin skinned and petty as Johnson, that quote is hard to believe. It makes me wish we had beat them yesterday by 50, which we could have.

      Pretty sure Kirby sees that shit and hates it as much as we do. He will never say it out loud, but you know he relishes beat downs like yesterday.

    Paul Johnson is the greatest coach that Paul Johnson has ever met. Possibly the best that he has ever heard of. Now for the rest of the football world………

    Friend made a good point about Johnson yesterday. He said; with as long as it will take tech to recruit and create a team after Johnson leaves, he sort of has them held hostage. It would take a new coach a minimum of three years to recruit enough players to play in a spread/pro style offense to be competitive. What coach would take the job at a school where they would inherit a team made up of triple option linemen, receivers and quarterbacks?

    I think Johnson can stay as long as he wants to. The tech AD knows replacing him will be a nightmare.

      That’s why they have their eye on Bohanon at Kennesaw State. They’re convinced he will recruit better than Fish Fry. They’ve married themselves to that pathetic system much like Ga Southern.

    For a year’s salary donation, rest assured we will put Paul’s name and mug on the visiting team’s locker area. Alabama has the Fail Room.
