Allow me to retort.

As you can imagine, the proud denizens of StingTalk have leapt to the defense of Coleman Rudolph’s assertion that Georgia Tech has had better coaching over the past thirty years than has Georgia in the face of what they perceive as withering, ignorant criticism.   Maybe just this once, they’re on to something.

I mean, I don’t know how anyone who’s ever watched Tech’s last offensive series of the 2004 game could possibly disagree with Rudolph.

At the 1:01:39 mark, you see Tech’s OC signal to Reggie Ball to spike the ball on third-and-21, much to Uncle Verne’s amazement.  No wonder Reggie was confused on fourth down.

Now that’s coaching ’em up, he said ignorantly.

    Other than Bobby Ross and George O’Leary, GA Yech has consistently had bad HCs since Bobby Dodd retired. I blame their ADs but really it could just be the school itself is such a horrible place that no one worth a damn would want to coach there.

      Proof of this is the steady decline in expectations. Last year I re-watched the 2007 game, and at the end the announcers are talking about the impending firing of Gailey, citing his seven-year record of pretty much 7-5 every year. As they spoke from a 2007 disc to me in 2017 (or probably ’18, not sure) Johnson was finishing a much worse seven-year span that included two then-recent bowl-ineligible BAD losing seasons, and getting an extension and a raise for it. I wondered what ol’ Chan thought about that.

      I have always thought the same thing. Other than the Varsity and the Cheetah Club the location is terrible.

    I’ll never agree that Paul Johnson was a superior coach to anyone in D1.
    It’s just the same old garbage from them. They can’t get great players because the academics! Notre Dame and Stanford manage to do just fine, losers.


    • What I love about the whole thing is how Rudolph refers to “coaching as a whole” in his tweet, but nobody on the Tech side ever seems to mention Johnson’s defensive coordinators. Don’t they count? The way the genius went through them, you’d think they do.

      I think Johnson as a college coach was similar to Spurrier as an NFL coach. Both were excellent coordinators. Spurrier was an excellent college coach, but it didn’t translate to the NFL. And Johnson’s play calling expertise didn’t translate to head coaching at a P5 school. The man couldn’t recruit. He was disinterested in defense. He couldn’t fund raise. He just didn’t seem interested in much beyond being an offensive coordinator.


  3. Bobby Ross vs. Ray Goff – no argument there

    Bill Lewis vs. Ray Goff – Goff punked him 3 times in a row

    George O’Leary vs. Ray Goff/Jim Donnan – other than 2000, it took 2 calls for the Mensa member Joe Hamilton to get wins leading to …

    George O’Leary vs. Mark Richt – CMR took Donnan’s players and smashed Fech in their one matchup and started the Dawgs’s millennial dominance of the Joke by Coke.

    Chan Gailey vs. Mark Richt – c’mon, dog. Richt outcoached Gailey and would have ended the Drought if Fech hadn’t run Mr. Chantastic off.

    Paul Johnson vs. Mark Richt – got him twice in 8 years. Other than that, we run this state (even when Johnson was winning with Gailey’s NFL players).

    Paul Johnson vs. Kirby Smart – recruiting is part of coaching, right? Kirby’s I formation of linebackers figured out how to stop the TO. If not for a Q4 collapse in 2016, Kirby would have had 3 double digit wins over the Genius.

    Fech had better coaching under Ross. It was neutral under O’Leary. UGA has been miles better on the sideline since 2001. Facts, StinGTalk.

      Ray Goff was 2-0 versus the Skipper. The Skipper had a losing record against UGA, and had to rely on bad calls and NCAA violations to get the wins in 98 and 99. Hard to see how that equals “better coaching.” If Tech had as good or better players as UGA in the last 30 years, as they like to frequently proclaim, how is losing 3 out of every 4 attributable to having better coaching than UGA?

      10 or 15 years from now, Tech fans will look back on the days when they lost 3 out of 4, or 8 out of 10 (since CMR took over) as “the good old days when GT was competitive.”


    • Muttley

      How about 2009? That was a pretty nice match-up of coaching staffs and game plans.


  4. Juvenile response from a a guy who has a long history of juvenile responses.
    This guy has always been a lightweight and somewhat of a jerk.

    It’s gotten far more attention than it was worthy of.

    Coleman Rudolph is a typical Tech shit disrurber. He says stupid stuff he probably doesn’t even believe (I don’t know, I’m just giving him the benefit of the doubt that he isn’t actually stupid) just to get a rise out of UGA fans. They can’t beat us, so they sneer at us. Hey, Coleman, if we’re stupid and poorly coached and we still own you, maybe we aren’t stupid and poorly coached. See your smugnorant ass in November at Sanford West.


  6. Jerry Bowman

    The series record during those 30 years was 22 wins for UGA and 8 wins for the Trade School. Scoreboard baby.


    • W Cobb Dawg

      If we walk away with a win and they want to say we got out-coached, I’m not sure I’d bother arguing. They obviously learned that argument technique in class when the topic of ‘Monty Python’s knight guarding the bridge’ was reviewed.

    Oh, man. Reading some of those posts. They may be great at calculus but they ain’t good at logic or grammar.

    Maybe this’ll lead to that badly needed study on the connection between football and math aptitudes:

    Woo boy this new coach has them all stirred up!


  10. Mikey

    Yeah well… what about Aaron Murray in the 2012 SEC Championship Game and total fuck up. 😡


  11. Doug

    “Our teams are so pitiful that Georgia should NEVER lose to us, therefore the fact we’ve only beaten them three times this millennium PROVES we’ve got better coaching!”

    These dickfarts go on and on about how much smarter they are than we are, yet they actually think this qualifies as a mic-drop argument. What a world.


  12. Dawg in Austin

    Pretty sure that was former Auburn QB (and current HS coach) Patrick Nix. Genius.
