Saying you’re 6-16 without saying you’re 6-16

Coach 404, y’all.

I do give the guy credit for making the effort.  He was handed the Herculean task of trying to get the program out of the ditch the genius steered it into.  The thing is — if Collins doesn’t work out, where the heck does Tech go next?

    Kiffin coaching at nerdville scares the krystal out of me faster than dipping my 12 sackful with no cheese into the krystal ultra lubricant cup of chili

        Probably not. As coaching goes, it would be less than a lateral move for Kiffin at this point, but he is an attention hog at heart and the media attention he would get would far and away outstrip what he gets now. Just sayin’ it ain’t impossible.

    Triple option football, here GTU comes!

    There are 2 ways to be great: do whatever everyone else does better than anyone, or do something no one else can do. Which one do you think GTU is more likely to pull off?

    Maybe their next coach will run the Princeton offense. Because at GTU, YOU CAN DO THAT! (even if it makes no sense, maybe because it makes no sense)

    Did he say Tech is one of the top four academic institutions in the country? Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Columbia, Stanford, MIT are rolling their eyes.

  6. NERDS! Once G-off flames out, Fech mines the mid-majors again to try and find a diamond in the ruff. Their lack of support for football will not be attractive to a big name coach…the facilities, the stadium, recruiting budget, the administration, and most of all the fan base all are subpar…right now the entire university does not have the will to have a successful football program. Tuck Fech!

    Back in the 70’s one of my roommates attended Tech while I matriculated at, ah – a different trade school. Visited the campus several times over those years and I can say; Tech is a wonderful institution, for nerds.

      I ran through there a few weeks ago while taking a weekend getaway in Midtown… it’s an impressive campus in the heart of a great city. If they didn’t take pride in willfully abusing their students, it would indeed be a top-class institution.

    That’s the million dollar question. He is almost 1/2 through that 7 year dal with little to show. They have to show marked improvement this year and next year or I think he is toast. Recruiting has regressed with a big drop last year and on pace for a similar finish this year. In short – he better start winning and soon. And if he fails? What does Tech do? He’s the big bet. They are going to want to keep that ACC money. Do they swallow their pride, knowing that they are a doormat in football to hold on to the ACC? I just do not see them recovering well, should they fail… And all the trends say that they are going to fail.

    That tool is the perfect coach for the arrogant nerd pricks that make up the tech fan base. Only tech fans can think their campus being in the middle of an Atlanta ghetto is a draw for recruits. That “vibe” he talks about is also known as the “fear” one gets when having to walk to their car at night on or near the tech campus.

    I think he gets two more years. Recruiting has actually improved for the simple fact he’s recruiting Georgia.

    But if I’m the AD, I’d hire Matt Campbell yesterday. Throw the bank at him.

    A good place to start is learning how to spell his own name. Jeff Collins is going to be just fine for Tech, though. He has the annoying little brother script down pat and the Tech people eat that shit up because they’ve fully embraced being the annoying, mouthy little brother that can’t back shit up but knows they only have to eat it one day a year. He’s at least attempting to recruit again and you can build a decent program in this state with the guys who are left after Georgia, Clemson, Alabama, Auburn, and assorted other programs take what they want out of the state. They’ll be a middling ACC program as soon as this season, potentially, and in their most private thoughts Tech fans will accept being a middling ACC program because they know that’s the best to which they can aspire given their current priorities. Compete with and maybe even beat Georgia once every six or seven years and honestly, he’ll be around as long as Fish Fry was. Tech fans won’t admit it publicly, but privately they know exactly what they are and that’s why Paul Johnson was such a big hit there.

    • You hit the nail on the head. It’s also why they feel the constant need to bring it back to academics. And the funny thing is we all know tech is a better school than Georgia (though I have heard people from our STEM programs complain that the nerds make it difficult for us to grow our engineering school, but that’s a different topic). They’re always bringing it up and trying to convince us we’re losers when in reality most of us don’t care they gleefully allowed themselves to be bullied by that institution en route to becoming civil engineers.

        Knocking Jeff for being one of those dudes who spells “Jeff” with a “G” is certainly not the only thing I’m knocking him for, and while Jeff didn’t name himself we do live in a world where people can get a legal name change pretty easily. Heck, you can change a lot about yourself legally these days. Jeff has chosen to stick with his autocorrect failure of a name.

    Tech’s best recruiting year, maybe EVER, was in 2007,,,the year they managed to get Derrick Morgan (DE), Jonathan Dwyer (RB), Morgan Burnett (WR), Nick Claytor (OL) and Josh Nesbitt (QB), all four-star prospects and all ranked in the top 100 recruits in the nation. Even with that impressive haul, that recruiting class would be considered a down year for UGA now.
    Now things have really changed. We are among a handful of schools where a really high 3-star guy is considered a “experiment” or “developmental” guy for us. A really high 3-star is a great get for Tech and a 4-star guy sends them into a drunken-wild-celebration.
    I just don’t think Tech is EVER going to be talented enough to compete with us again. I know the record now is 16-4 against them since 2000 and they managed to upset us just 4 or 5 seasons’ ago, but last season was a 52-7 floor-mopping. It’s an echo of things to come. Our facilities, our coach, our talent, our fanbase, our momentum, our everything….they all point to a long, long, LOOOOONG drought for the Jackets to EVER claim a victory over us again. Someone should tell this to ol Collins and bring him back down to Earth.
