    "the elite program we're supposed to be." Once upon a time, there were only 20 or 25 "supposed to be elite" programs. Today many of those programs have experienced the bitter reality that dozens of programs are vying to be elite through their performance on the field. I know some of the rhetoric is "juice enhancing", but the better teams are not excellent because the are supposed to be, they are excellent because they do the things required to make them excellent. That is the fact I hope is not getting lost in the hype. We will be elite when the scoreboard says we are elite. I am sure Michigan, and Arkansas, and FSU, and Miami, and Tennessee all feel they are supposed to be elite programs.

    I must have missed that magical time period in “the late 90s early 2000s” when we were always in the top 20 and always playing for championships.

    We had three top 20 finishes (one of those a top 10 in one poll) in 99, 00, 01 with one tie for 1st in the ACC. Our best win record was 10 games and we were never in the national championship conversation.

    I remember in the late O’s early 10’s when we had some top 20 finishes, played for and won a championship, and played in and won a NY 6 bowl.

    I appreciate the “juice”, but let’s not revise history here.

    The last time Tech was elite was prior to the banning of segregation.

    Yeah, we were "tied for 1st in the ACC" with the team that beat us like a drum 34-7 in Atlanta.
