Georgia Tech, just a whiteboard away

Shot ($$).

Chaser.

Leave the bottle on the bar.

When he was 10 years old, Stansbury and his family were vacationing in Daytona Beach, Fla., in the spring. Several Georgia Tech football players happened to be staying in the same hotel. There, in the lobby and by the pool, young Todd Stansbury was mesmerized by these college football players, especially quarterback Scott Zolke.

“He could do some amazing things with beer cans off his forehead,” Stansbury recalled a few years ago. “I said when I grow up, I want to just be just like those guys.”

Really, it’s amazing Georgia Tech football isn’t more successful.

    If UGA’s circle gets any bigger, they’re going to have to put Yech’s little gold dot in Alabama for it to show up.

    Kind of neat how UGA’s bubble is so big that Tech’s bubble had to be moved to Carrollton so it could be seen.

  4. I didn’t realize Clemson didn’t generate more revenue than they do in relation to to the others shown. Not surprised so much by Clemson being behind Auburn and Tennessee, but I the distance behind those programs was interesting to me. I would have guessed Clemson would have been closer to the SEC schools in revenue than they are.

    After reading the article, it’s even more sad once you see that Duke, Boston College, Pitt, Syracuse, and others all generate more football $$$ than Yech. That paints a far bleaker picture than the article sets out to paint.

    Nearly spit out my coffee… 5 wins, if everything goes right for Tech. A couple of slip ups and it could their 3rd straight 3 win season.

    Scuse me being nerdy, maybe even Techy, but those circles distort the porportions. UGA’s $134 million is a little less than 5 times Tech’s $28 million, but the area in those circles is much more disporportionate. A bar graph would might be better.
    I know what the point is, but indulge me. I do that. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

  10. But Stansbury just got one of the two most admired CEO awards from the Atlanta Business Chronicle for sports and entertainment … I was at the award dinner last night and just chuckled to myself. He looks as nerdy in person as he does in that picture.

      Let’s remember why they left the SEC…Bobby Dodd, who no one can say a disparaging word…knew that Black players were in the future of Southern football…but the SEC was still dreaming of a White future. The SEC was fine with Tulane and Tech…they each had some great players.

      On a side note, I disturbed a hive of little nerds the other day. They got a few good stings on me, then I eradicated those little bastards with much prejudice and furious anger.

      I expect the same in November minus them getting a few stings.

          Dump a cup of Sevin dust directly in the little bastards hole in the evening when they’re sluggish as their namesake football team. Carbaryl is safe, effective and inexpensive with a long shelf life. They’ll be dead before the end of the day.
          Now if you want to have fun and kill them while you’re at it? Pour a pint of gasoline in their hole. That will end them. The entertaining part isn’t necessary or safe. Wait about five minutes then toss a match in the hole. GET THE FUCK BACK !!

            Found some expanding foam poison that is made for the f*ckers. Did that, waited a bit then excavated the nest. They dead.

              Thanks MCM. That’s another weapon in my arsenal in the ongoing war against pests and vermin. At the risk of being branded a collaborator I’ll admit to allowing some nests to co-exist if they’re not in my yard or otherwise easily agitated to attack. Yellow jackets, hornets and other wasps are excellent eradicators of harmful insects and caterpillars. That must be balanced with the risk of being stung especially to those allergic.

    Tech’s problem is of its own making. The place sits in the middle of the third largest recruiting state in the nation, literally in the epicenter, but they can’t/won’t/don’t recruit well. Logically Tech should be Clemson but mismanagement has created the situation they find themselves in at the Flats. That situation is caused entirely by bad hires. HC after HC hired by Georgia Tech for over 50 years has been a loser. Yes, they hired Bobby Ross who won a natty in 1990 but Ross also had two seasons when Tech lost almost every game too. Then there was George O’Leary, a competent HC who won his share. But Tech couldn’t keep either Ross or O’Leary from seeking greener pastures. Back to the revolving door of HCs. The reality is that Tech hasn’t had a long-time winner since Bobby Dodd who retired in 1966. And ole 404 isn’t the answer either. He’s got one more year, two at the max, and then the revolving door starts revolving again. Simple really: If you make bad hires you get bad results—both on the field and economically.

      The GT campus is dreary. The stadium is dreary and small. The student body isn’t demographically inclined to appreciate American football.
      Visit GT on an Autumn day and experience the busses, motorcycle and interstate noise and smells. See the pollution stunted trees lining the grassless shoulders of the roads by the cracked sidewalks. Hear the wail of police sirens. Hear the thump of traffic and business and police helicopters more than occasionally flying over the campus. Get stuck in traffic….
      Never mind. Don’t do all that.
      Just go enjoy an autumn day on the UGA campus and enjoy Athens.

        Tech has always been at the same place Ug. From 1904 through 1966 Tech had three HCs—John Heisman, Bill Alexander and Bobby Dodd. Each of those HCs won nattys. Heisman won two. Hell, they named the Heisman trophy after one of them and the Coach of the Year award after another. Plenty of kids want to go to college in an urban environment. Tech squandered its position in CFB by mismanagement and bad hires. For people who think they are so smart they certainly are stupid.

    How do we bring in more money than Bama for
    football, but spend less money than Bama on football?

    More importantly, how do we bring in more than twice the money Clemson does from football, but spend less money than Clemson on football?

    And we have people who wonder why they win national titles and we don’t?

    There’s only 2 whiteboards. The writing in the background is on the drywall.

    The only one who writes on the board more than Stansbury is Bart Simpson – when he’s being punished.
