Getting swaggy with it

In the post-Bobby Dodd era, Georgia Tech has beaten Georgia at about a 30% clip, so at some point you can expect Geoff Collins to beat Kirby Smart, just like the genius upset Mark Richt’s teams a couple of times.

The difference appears to be that where as Johnson was merely smug after a win, Collins promises to be much more publicly obnoxious about it.

Don’t get me wrong; I think that’s a good thing.  COFH could use an injection of spice from the Tech side.  Sipping from a jewel-encrusted “Swag Chalice” could be just what the doctor ordered to help get that hate on.

    Jostens has already sent a christmas card to Geoff Collins.

    This cat seems more Butch Jones than Bobby Dodd but that was at Tennessee, not a program with the great football tradition and loyal support that Tech has. I’m sure everything will work out great….

  2. I’ve always been of the mindset that you should have some success before you have swagger, otherwise it’s just empty words.

    “The Hawks have, for example, mastered using the city’s hip-hop stars to promote their brand.”

    Good luck emulating the Hawks. If the Hawks have a brand, it’s as the dumbest f#*ks in professional sports for letting Bud and Ferry walk away. Bud could actually coach. Ferry assembled a solid roster out of nothing almost overnight and without any high lottery picks – virtually unheard of in the NBA.

    With the stress of the Christmas season, we all needed a good laugh. Thank you Geoff (soon to be Jeoff since he will soon ban all “G’s” just like he banned red.

    What a doofus. He makes SOD seem like General Neyland in comparison.

      SOD had a degree from Virginia and a law degree from UGA. Geoff has that meaningful degree from Western Carolina, like the Genius.

    If Geoff Collins ever beats Kirby, I’ll eat that swag chalice.

    In my opinion it will be hard for them to be more obnoxious than they already are.

    He must crave the lash.

    Keep talking, Little Bugger. Here’s a counter-proposal:

    Each time you fail to cover the spread, we get to fill the swag chalice for ya with contents of our choice. Mmmmm.

    I have no problem with Collins cooking up memes and gifs in an effort to make Tech football seem cool. I mean, they’ve clearly gotta do something. Nobody ever won a game with an Instagram story, though.

    Collins won’t be there long enough to really get SWAGGED. Any degree of success and he’s gone elsewhere.

    Coach,
    Rather than running your mouth and hiring a swag coordinator, I would suggest that you start putting together your coaching staff and try to recruit some half way decent football players. Playing to the nerd base isn’t going to get you anywhere.I

    Besides, I always thought SWAG stood for Scientific Wild Was Ass Guess which kind of explains the fech football program (minus the scientific part).

  18. I do not think Geoff Collins will ever beat Kirby. We are on a whole different level now and I don’t think the game will ever come down to one call that could go their way (squib kick, or a 4th and 11, etc.).

    If Tech does get real good and he beats us, he will move on to a better job.

    I think 9 consecutive wins is very possible. It would be great to have meaningful stat in the series in favor of UGA.

    30%? I didn’t realize it was that high.

      1998, 1999, 2000, 2008, 2014, 2016. In the last 20 years that Jasper Sanks game drops off, so it’s 5 of the last 20. That’s 25%? Right?*

      We won from 1991 to 1997, so you can take it out 30 years I guess and get 8 wins which according to my simple math is 26.6% (with a repeating six, of course).

    From 2001 to 2014 GT won 1 game. Its on that pace now. It will be at least 3 years before they can even compete. The way UGA is recruiting it will be longer than that.
