He sure can pick ’em.


You’ve really got to work to make something like that happen.

It’s hard to believe, but when they can Coach 404, they’re basically going to be right back where they were, talent-wise, when Johnson left.

    You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means. (This is best said with a Spanish accent.)

    …and they likely have even fewer fans than when fishfry left. That would’ve seemed impossible just a few years ago.

    If UGA had recruited and sent someone to fully gut gtu’s program, I’m not sure we could’ve found anyone who’d have done such a thorough job as Geoff.

    This guy keeps screwing up so badly that I almost feel sorry for him. Then I remember their smarmy fans and realize I hope he stays there forever. They have a bush league team to match their bush league fans. Fuck ‘em all!

  6. Geoff can stay at Fech as long as he wants as far as I’m concerned…he’s doing the Lord’s work.

      Hell, I tried for years to talk them sumbitches into giving paul THE johnson a contract extension,
      they wouldn’t listen to me!

    At least Fish Fry’s recruits, as bad as they might be, started.

      Considering that Georgia Tech went to bowl games in all but two of Paul Johnson’s head coaching years, his recruits not only started but they won at least about half of their games every season, won the ACC in 2009 beating Clemson in the ACCCG and played in the Orange Bowl, and won the coastal division in 2014 (losing by 2 to FSU in the ACCCG) but still getting an Orange Bowl bid. Georgia Tech is a classic example of be careful what you wish for. Their fans were tired of 6, 7 or 8 win seasons and a dated, boring offense. The Georgia Tech fans that I know personally thought that after a year or two of pain in moving to a modern offense they’d be back competing at a high level. And now entering year four of the Geoff Collins Experiment they are not only not progressing, they are backsliding.

    You’d think Techies would know better than to try to divide by zero.

    That seems bad. Definitely not a good foundation for a six year rebuild!

    Geoff continues to be a record-breaking coach – in addition to (literally) breaking GTU’s won-loss record, he has also broken the record for going 0-fer on an entire recruiting class!

    It’s pretty amazing this amount of ineptitude. I have zero recruiting contacts and know nearly nothing about high level football play but I really believe I could do at least as well as Collins is doing for a hell of a lot less money. A monkey throwing shit a a play sheet could coach them to 4 or 5 wins a season.

  12. Whatever else I thought about the Collins hire, I figured he’d at least make some progress in moving the Jackets from the triple option to a modern offense. But it appears they may have actually moved backward compared to 2019.

    We need to do what we can to keep him there

    Good thing Dan Mullen is a genius and doesn’t need talent to win.

    Hey, this was always going to me a 30-year rebuild. Let’s cut him some slack.

    I will admit that I thought he was going to be a better hire than this. What an absolute shit storm this has been.

    Maybe Dan is available after the season, he’s quirky like Geoff, recruits a little better than Geoff, and would be a football god to the Nerds. Atlanta is not far from Lake Oconee.

      “…recruits a little better than Geoff…”
      Wow. Talk about your low bars. It’s hard to believe that the returning players are sooo good that none of Tech’s recruits can expect significant playing time.


    • paulwesterdawg

      Dan would absolutely be a leading candidate for this job. And that’s not even close to being a joke.

      Ken Wisenhunt is probably at top of the list. Former GT player. Long nfl tenure. Not working so has no buyout.

      Monken’s name will come up. As well as Schumann.

      Bill O’Brien is their dream (former coach under O’Leary and Fridge) but I doubt he would take that mess.

      Guys like Tashard Choice will probably get the curtesy interview like Tee Martin did at UT last time.

      Will be an interesting hire for sure.


      • You’re absolutely right that Dan Mullen is probably the best name they could land right now. All the currently employed guys like O’Brien, Monken, and Schumann surely know they can parlay their success as coordinators into better (or at least less doomed) jobs than the current mess on the Flats. Whisenhunt turned them down in 2018, he’s a career NFL guy anyway.

        Or hey, maybe they’ll go after Bryan Harsin after Auburn fires him out of a cannon in a few months . . .

          One podcast recently was remarking on Deion for the Tech job given the Atlanta dynamic. I just laughed because I can’t imagine the combination of those two entities. Especially if FSU opens at the end of this year (or earlier).


        • Russ

          I’d love for MuLLLLen to wind up at Tech so we can continue to torment his ass.


        • You would think the tech AD would look at Bama’s staff (Jones?) or…gulp!…Kirby’s. Don’t think Bobo gets a look, but would Boom jump ship?


      • Harold Miller

        Monken and Schumann will have much better opportunities than this multi-year reclamation project.

      • Brian Bohannon at Kennesaw State would take it. Can you imagine a Dawg alum coaching Georgie Tick?


      • David D

        Dan is a very good X’s and O’s guy. He still won’t recruit. Down at Florida that’ll still get you to the Gasparilla Bowl even if you don’t lift a finger. Tech, on the other hand, would be thrilled to consistently go to a mid-December bowl game and perhaps beat Georgia once every Epoch.

      I would love for Dan the Clown end up at Tech. Oh the fun we would have.

      Man, if you thought the “PAUL JOHNSON IS A GENIUS” talk was ridiculous, imagine how much the Crickets will hype up Dan the Man. “HE’S GOT KIRBY DUMB’S NUMBER”


  18. stoopnagle

    Of course, in his defense, that was the transition class from Fish Fry to Jeoffery.


  19. toccoadawg

    We are talking about Tech. They will go after someone with past success and with the bar so low, there’s nowhere to go but up.

    Our disaster of a 2013 class would still be considered a win compared to what Tech has managed to pull off. To have a class with NO starters speaks to the ineptitude that is GT’s coaching staff. May they have long careers on The Flats.

    Why would anyone take the Tech job? Many FBS job openings that greatly exceed Tech happen every year. I suspect there are even quite a few D2 of FCS jobs that are FAR more desirable than the disaster on North Avenue.


    • miltondawg

      The only reason to take that job is to put a few million dollars into your pocket late in your career before retirement. There is literally no other reason I can think of. Work out the string for the money or get canned and spend your days spending the money from Tech.
