“Offensively, the first half was embarrassing.”

Sad Paul Johnson is the best Paul Johnson.

By the way, nice safety there, Jackets.

The cream always rises to the top.

Look who’s starting at A-back for Georgia Tech.

I’m looking forward to the anti-Dwag spin about this at StingTalk.

Culture clash

As we all know, it’s a big weekend in Atlanta for Georgia football.

Just remember, if you’re a Georgia Tech fan, it’s a big weekend in Atlanta for you, too.

Tl;dr

An alert reader brought this one to my attention:  over at From The Rumble Seat, a blogger decided it would be an enlightening exercise to devote more than 2,500 words to the idea there’s something amiss with Georgia Tech’s recruiting that doesn’t involve the coaches.

I’ll leave you to guess what that is, if you’re so inclined.

A program’s gotta know its limitations.

It must have killed Mark Bradley to type this.

As AD, Bobinski went through several publicists — Wayne Hogan was pushed aside after one year, Dean Buchan after two — but it was uncertain whether subsequent hires ever yielded whatever it was Bobinski wanted. Because what Bobinski wanted wasn’t exactly clear. He spoke grandly of his vision for Tech athletics, but he said pretty much what every AD — save Dave Braine — had said: That the Jackets were striving only for the best.

In the cold light of hindsight, the unloved Braine stands revealed as a teller of truths. He famously averred that, at least for Tech football, inherent impediments existed that would keep the Jackets from achieving lasting greatness. More than a decade later, his evaluation has been revealed as truth. Tech has had some superb seasons, followed immediately by seasons rather less superb.

Say what?  I thought the Jackets were on the fast track to greatness after the Great Win of 2008.  Derailments can be a bitch, man.

Then again, I guess you could say Bradley is arguing that Paul Johnson hasn’t failed Georgia Tech.  Tech has failed the genius.
