“It’s a horrible feeling, keeping it real…”

What’s that, man?

Collins is 6-16 in his third season in Atlanta. The Yellow Jackets, who play FCS state rival Kennesaw State on Saturday, have lost six of seven since a 2-2 start to the 2020 season. The latest loss was especially damaging to hopes the 2021 season could provide signs Collins can build a winning team.

Among low points in Collins’ three seasons, perhaps only a loss to The Citadel in his 2019 debut season compares with last Saturday’s 22-21 loss to Northern Illinois. Georgia Tech was favored by 18 1/2 points.

The visit from Kennesaw State was expected to generate momentum for Georgia Tech’s Atlantic Coast Conference opener at No. 6 Clemson on Sept. 18. Now, with new questions at quarterback, no one dares to look past Kennesaw State…

Yeah, that’s definitely keeping it real.

Speaking of keeping it real, as much as I would enjoy back to back upsets, there’s a part of me that would love to hear Coach 404’s fake optimism if Tech narrowly scrapes out a win against the Owls.

    Yes! More happy talk about tech and less about Bama. Perfect! LOL.

    I will shit my pants laughing if KSU triple options tech to a big fat L on Saturday.

      Oh, the irony, Stoopnagle!
      Speaking of the nerds and the triple option, the practice time Kirby spent prepping for ol Turkey Neck’s O came in handy during the Rose Bowl. When Mayfield tried to spring the option on the Dawgs? The D stopped that shit cold for a loss. I’m still laughing and looking forward to more mirth at the expense of those piss-their-pants-pussy gnats.

    “FCS rival Kennesaw State”

    LOL … there’s been a #404Takeover alright, but it looks like it’s the G5 and FCS running things over there now.

  3. The cynic in me asks why don’t they just rename GATech UGA Metro, or UGA ‘s 2nd Engineering school and we treat it like a minor league farm franchise, but then the realist in me remembers that we don’t want anything to do with those scrubs. Tuck Fech!

    Geoffrey might have to go back to being the front man of the now defunct Toys R Us franchise…possible good news, Scott Frost will soon be available

    A loss to KSU and his tight capri pants, he might be singing soprano Sat night.

      Bohannon’s KSU team has a good chance against Tech this weekend. KSU is fairly efficient with their triple option attack and while I am sure that Tech prepared some for this game in August, last Saturday uncovered a whole lot of issues with this Tech team (not the least of which was what seemed like regression from Sims).

  7. Why do I envision Geoffrey holding a tennis ball while telling his team, “Gentlemen, this is a football…”

  8. If I were a betting man, I’d put my money on Coach Geoff having lots more time to spend at Waffle House come December.

      There’s no way they can afford to get rid of him. They had to give him a 7 year deal to come there because he knew (as did every other coach in America) that they were going to have to recruit their way out of Paul Johnson’s gimmick offense into trying to play modern football again. They can’t afford to buy out four years of his contract and then hire a new staff. They’re stuck with him. I couldn’t be happier.

      If you are saying that because they aren’t likely to be bowl eligible, I agree. If you think that he is getting fired with four more years and over $14 million remaining on his contract, I don’t see it happening.

    By the way, the 404 is a great place to attend a football game for anyone still nervous about covid and crowds

    He knew when he took the job it was a money grab only. Switching over from CPJs setup AND having success was not humanly possible. His bank account is set though, regardless of WHEN they fire him. (All guaranteed money from what I remember). He’s a real asshole with zero self awareness, which will help accelerate his departure.
