The dreaded vote of confidence

Buzz, buzz, baby ($$)!

… Edge rusher Jordan Domineck, the aspiring physical therapist who led the Jackets in sacks and quarterback hits in 2021, said nothing negative about Collins or the program on his way out the door, but he acknowledged players on the team are aware of Collins’ situation and some are looking for a change.

“I could say that happens everywhere you go,” Domineck told The Athletic. “Some people don’t buy in, some people do. I have nothing personally to say about the uncertainty of the program. But I will say some people don’t feel too sure. They just don’t feel too sure. Some people don’t have a vision of what GT can do next year.”

Oh, they’ve got a vision, alright.

    It’s unrealistic to sustain their run of 3 wins per year indefinitely. Eventually you’ll have a down year.

    How do you say “We all know we’re Fd”without saying we all know we’re Fd?

    I’d say the fact that he was on his way out the door says something negative in and of itself…

    When I think of Tech, I think of the Metallica song No Leaf Clover. “Then it comes to be that the soothing light at the end of your tunnel was just a freight train coming your way.”

    Wow. Read the whole article, and it seems even worse than Bluto’s excerpts. Seriously, sort of, GT should look at some of the really successful high school coaches in the state and make them an offer. They couldn’t do any worse.

    While we are on the subject of Tech, what do we see as their long term future? Do they actually want to be competitive in athletics or do they want to be an MIT / Cal Tech that doesn’t try or plays at a lower level?

    At the moment I am guessing they are happy the long term ACC grant of rights locks them into the conference, because it feels like their athletics offer very little to the Big 10 beyond academics and Atlanta market access, with the market access being tenuous as to whether anyone in Atlanta cares about Tech sports. Is that enough to get a seat at the table?

    Would the SEC take them pre-emptively over our objections? Why should the SEC throw them a life line when Atlanta is already crowded in recruiting and Tech is one more mouth to feed (even if they aren’t terribly adept at recruiting currently)?

    Trying to look at this outside our red and black glasses but it’s admittedly difficult!

      If schools like GT, Stanford, Vandy, etc we’re thinking, they’d put all this football money back into the actual school while the gravy train is still rolling. Just let the competitive schools blow money in the insane arms race while they build up a colossal Harvard level endowment.

    • Zero chance in hell Tech ever winds back up in the SEC. Zero need for them.

      I’ve been saying it for awhile now, I think the likelihood is MUCH MUCH higher that Tech abandons D1 football altogether than Tech ever makes the CFP. It just seems like they’re trending in the academics-not-only-first-but-academics-only direction more than the competitive-in-football direction.

      There’s a scenario out there where Georgia Tech ends up in the Big Ten to try to give the conference a footing in the Atlanta market. I am skeptical of that, too, but I see it happening before I see them in the SEC. They just don’t add any value for the SEC.

      • Correct. The Big 10 might have some interest in Tech as a way to break into the Atlanta TV market, but the SEC already has that market locked down solid. I’ll grow a second dick and win the Nobel Prize in chemistry before the SEC invites Tech to rejoin.
