Look what a little effort gets you.

We’ve all directed our fair share of mockery Geoff Collins’ way, so it’s only right to point out that with yesterday’s commitment of a four-star wide receiver from Florida, Georgia Tech currently stands a respectable 23rd in the 247Sports Composite.

No, that’s not a recipe for a national championship run, and, yes, there’s still a long way to go until December, but you’ve got to start somewhere and I’d say finishing better than any year since 2007 would qualify for that.

Funny how, despite all the protestations to the contrary from the Stingtalk folks, academics aren’t an insurmountable roadblock to bringing in a functional signing class at the Flats.  Maybe all it takes is a coach who doesn’t act like he’s allergic to recruiting.

    It depends on their goal. If it was to beat us on occasion, CPJ was the way to go. If it’s to win a division title on a more frequent basis, this is. Right now, Kirby has gotta be feeling about Tech like the Russians felt going into the battle of Kursk. A word of caution about the 247 rankings. They are based on total points, not average. That’s why Richt’s classes were so high. He had a bunch of 3*’s sign (2013)

    Speaking of a little effort, check out the GT Strength twitter feed if you want to see some nice superhero costumes and before/after shots that use the same lighting tricks as fitness infomercials. https://twitter.com/StrengthGT/media

  3. Collins is putting forward a gallant effort, but he hasn’t discovered yet that the biggest problem tech has is tech people. No one wants to be around a bunch of know-it-all assholes, which is basically all of them.

    I like the fact that their two highest recruits came from Florida. I guess Side Show Dan didn’t feel the need to leave the lake to recruit them.

  5. I think a decent Tech team makes the season more fun. Maybe that’s just me.
