    I’ll give them this. They are being mentioned in players top 10, sometimes top 5. That means they are at least working and developing relationships with these kids. It hasn’t transferred to commits. In short – they are going to have to start winning. They are 6-16 in 2 years. The best thing that happened to them last year was not having to play Georgia, who would have drubbed them again.

    His first recruiting class (according to 247) was 27th in the country and 5th best in the ACC with 4 – 4 stars. But last year’s class slipped all the way to 11th in the ACC and 47th in the country. He did get a couple of really good players out of the portal – but that kind of slide tells you that the ‘404’ hype went away fairly quick.

    In short, he had better start winning. They appear to have put an awful lot of work into rising Juniors and Sophomore. That goes to pieces really quick if you do not show marked improvement. And based on that defense and offensive LOS – I just don’t see it.

    He has a 7 year deal with Georgia Tech. But as far as these kids are concerned, he has a 4 (5 tops) year deal or he’s likely done. This year and next year needs to see significant jumps. If they are still sub .500 or even .500 – I doubt he finishes the 7 years. And at that point, Georgia Tech will officially become the Vanderbilt of the ACC.

    Is that a torn shipping label in the graphic on the right? Are they literally getting trash out of garbage so long as it shows “404” on it??

      I support the sentiment of your comment, but no, the “404” is formed by the player gloves. Stupid little clouds added contribute to the mailer looking like it’s torn. I have a title for it, though: “Caca Collage.”

    “GT Football 2021: Our brand is mediocrity!”

    They’re the Velveeta of college sports. Bland, easily melts down, limited shelf life, and hard to be taken seriously by knowledgeable folks.

    I know I should’nt be surprised, but it still makes my eyes roll knowing that people actually have full time careers manipulating social media.

    The original brand manager must have left for greener pastures.

    Wow! An area code! That makes ME want to go there.

    I mean, I respect the hustle. They are getting some big time recruits to consider them with their branding even though it hasn’t translated to commitments yet. I’ll laugh if they flop, but I wouldn’t hate it if they became a more respectable win on our schedule.

  12. I imagine it’s a really difficult sale, going after better recruits to build a program that has been bad and is trying to modernize its offense. It’s a double-edged sword for players. Collins has done a decent job but it’s going to take more than on-field pushups in a blowout.

    As I was waiting on the tweet to load within this post, I was waiting to see who it would be. I was worried it might be Big Boi or TI or Luda or someone with some sort of actual juice. And then that guy’s picture popped up.


  15. I guess Mr. “ You can do that!” has been retired.

    Georgia Tech…where potential leaders come to become forgotten nerds.

    I’ve posted about this before but the real failure at Fech is the AD. Bad hire after bad hire in most sports. Back when Homer Rice was AD he hired Bobby Ross and they won a natty in football plus he hired Bobby Cremons and they won the ACC title in basketball and made the NCAA Tournament regularly. They also had a successful baseball program. They have had a series of bad ADs who regularly make bad hires. Collins is a symptom of the real problem and he will be gone within 2 years. Until they fix the AD problem Fech will be mired in mediocrity or worse.

    We’re laughing, but I think the branding angle presented here to recruits is about themselves, not Tech’s brand. Notice the shoe. It’s basically saying “your name here”. They’re being proactive on the NLI issue by hiring a guy specifically to help players market themselves.

  18. Color me unimpressed. If there was one thing that Geoff presented as a possible threat was in recruiting and his hype machine, but this looks so juvenile that even a middle schooler would “whatever” it. It was supposed to be the off the field successes that translated into wins, but I just don’t see them getting the horses to compete against much an improving ACC, let alone Georgia.

    Ho Li Phuk!
    Jeoff was out of his league when he did those push ups on the sideline after the bumbling bees recovered an onside kick and went on to loose the game 52-7. Recruits understand class. Jeoff doing push ups is hokey, not a class act.

    LOL #404

    SEC did them a big favor and McFrugal didn’t even speak up. C’mon, dawg.


  23. “OK, yeah, we’ve won six games in two seasons…but now we’ve got a BRAND GURU!” I mean, if I’m a blue-chip recruit the only question I’m asking is where do I sign.
