doesn't wear a mask

Because the luster had worn off when Fridge left and had MD competing in the ACC. O’Leary wouldn’t have had the same luster after leaving.The biggest mistake of all was not welcoming George O’Leary back with open arms after the ND resume fiasco. Why should we have cared? He won big games for us and was a solid coach.
I believe Threet would have taken over at QB for 2007. Never understood his excuse of leaving because of position coaches leaving. He really got behind the 8 ball at Michigan since Carr was canned and Rich Rod was brought in. I was excited when Threet came to GT and thought we finally had our big pro style QB. Just the dominoes of CFB. I think he could have come onboard and perhaps saved Gailey's job.And he got fired after signing threet lol
Because he was the only major pro style QB prospect Gailey was able to recruit. Could have been a game changer.Threet left when Gailey was still around to be closer to his girlfriend or some such BS. He was never long for GT. Not sure why he’s a topic of conversation in 2020.
Threet is a good example, although his reason for transfer was different.Freshmen QBs expecting to play early is stupid outside of a top QB. If you start transferring looking for a better situation, you are always going to find competition.
Sims signed well after Gleason and very late in the process so I always wondered if he was “happy” with that.
I expect the staff wanted to run the ball and that is why they used Graham.
Dad drama where there doesn't really need to be any.Speaking of QB transfers, hearing buzz from Rivals about Gleason’s dad commenting and alluding to a transfer. Was in response to a poster during the game thread saying WTTE “if I’m Gleason don’t get snaps today after sims comes out, I’m entering transfer portal tomorrow.” Gleason’s dad agreed.
His pops went to MIT. You would think they have done the math. Maybe MIT isn't as smart as we think!Needs to be the Fight Club math. The likelihood of player making pros $$ vs the likelihood of making GT grad $$.
The decade of these three coaches destroyed the once proud program of Georgia Tech football. Collins seemed like a good idea at the time, but now all of us know different. The legacy of Ross and O'Leary has been pissed away. Georgia Tech football is over.
Gailey got 6 seasons to coach and left treasure trove of talent which beat UGAg in a close game in 2008. Gailey came onboard and IMMEDIATELY had flunk gate. Without Gailey recruits, especially Dwyer and Morgan Burnett, UGAg probably wins 2008. We got a few breaks we weren't normally getting, like the Gagger kickoff fumble in the second half.One of these guys made two Orange Bowls and won one over an SEC team that was having its best season ever.
And played for a few ACC championships.
