    That tech scheduling bit was gold.

    So the tech guy is admitting that they can’t beat Georgia, Clemson or Notre Dame so the rest of the schedule should be cupcakes. Why not schedule Duke, Wake Forest, North Carolina, Pitt, etc. instead? Oh, they do!

    “they lost me in the first sentence comparing Tech football to a track star competing for a spot in the Olympics.”

    They did not specify which Olympics.

    Several points jumped out to me about this post. Right off the bat with the “Imagine you’re a…” I thought I was reading the speech a middle schooler was about to give. Secondly, the author alludes to trying navigate the tough 8 ACC games. Yes, Tech plays Clemson, but I’m not sure who else is good on their schedule. Miami? FSU? Finally, he argues that Tech doesn’t need to add to their OOC schedule because it plays UGA. Georgia on the other hand is having to add to its OOC schedule because Tech….well they suck. It’s a fun rivalry game (if you can really call it that given Georgia’s winning percentage over Tech), but the Dawgs gain little in playing the game in the nation’s eyes. During the CMR era, Georgia’s ranking actually went down several times after whipping Tech. I doubt the CFP committee last year gave UGA a giant bump after drubbing the Jackets. Tech is just too terrible to matter.

      I share the same thoughts. Also:
      –has anyone noticed that several of the articles discussing Georgia’s beefed up future NonCon omit Tech from the tally count of Georgia’s future games against P5 foes. They only reference Tech in a parenthetical that says “this does not include…annual Tech game”

      –whether it’s the unwavering backasswards philosophy of Paul Johnson or this opinion piece, leave it to the geniuses to advocate rowing in a direction exactly opposite to the winds of change that most people consider a positive advancement for the future health of their programs and college football in general.

      Can you point to examples of when we dropped in the rankings after beating Tech?

    The Tech author could win the gold medal for mental gymnastics with that gem. The idea that playing good football teams is the same as running a race with ankle weights is pure gold. Given the heavy lean on low brow Georgia jabs methinks that article may have been written by a high school senior
