You’ll never guess the latest Georgia Tech recruiting pitch ($$).
Georgia Tech’s third step is taking advantage of Super Bowl LIII being played at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in the heart of Atlanta. This week, above any other week since Collins was hired and the subsequent addition of his staff, is crucial for — as Collins would say — “putting Georgia Tech back in the national conversation.”
The eyes of the football world are on Atlanta this week, and Georgia Tech needs to make the most of that.
That’s right — “kid, if you come play for the Jackets, you can suit up in the same facilities the Patriots used for practice!”
“Right now, the Super Bowl is in town, and it is (1.9) miles away from Bobby Dodd Stadium,” Collins told The Cheap Seats radio show. “The college national championship was played here last year, (1.9) miles away from Bobby Dodd Stadium. The College Football Hall of Fame is right here in our backyard. The center of the college football universe is in Atlanta, and Georgia Tech is in the heart of it.”
“And just think — a couple of years ago, Georgia lost a national title game just a couple of miles away from good ol’ BDS!”
You have to admire the efficiency of it. Tech’s fan base has been living vicariously through Georgia’s opponents for decades. The new coaching staff is just internalizing that approach for its own purposes. Well played, Geoff.
