Yep....I've never been able to understand what has been going on in Knoxville for the last couple decades. The East just sat there ripe for the taking and no one up there was able to get it together. Living in Dalton we have lots of uga fans and lots of UT fans (that I assume have just been dormant) and my life was quieter and more peaceful when Tennessee was good.There is no real reason for Tennessee to be still wandering the desert 20 years after they dumped Fulmer.
That was the single biggest idiotic move a school could have ever made.
Me neither. I know what is says without opening it. Butch Jones had energy. Geoff Collins has energy. Therefore Butch Jones = Geoff Collins(No, I didn't click the link)
I'm sure he just wrote the article seeing the energy that CGC has brought to the program and was like "how can I be a dickhead towards Tech?". No research at all, I'm certain. Just a quick article to reinforce to his mutt base that they are his beloved. Otherwise, why mention Tennessee?Spoiler alert... He mentions the high water mark of our 2007 recruiting class without even noting that Collins was the architect of that class. He also doesn't note that Collins has been at Tech twice before. it's that quality of investigative journalism and background research that has landed the AJC where it is now.
I bet he didn’t take longer than 20 minutes to write the entire article.Me neither. I know what is says without opening it. Butch Jones had energy. Geoff Collins has energy. Therefore Butch Jones = Geoff Collins
I bet Bradley didn't take two ööööing seconds to analyze the backgrounds of the two coaches. Jones is a northerner. Had no connections anywhere in the south. Had coached and recruited in places like Michigan.
Collins is a southerner. Stops at Alabama, Florida, Mississippi State. He has connections Jones did not have
Yup there is no information in the article, new or old. It's like he was reading a thread on SECrant that compared CGC to bitch Jones and was like, "yeah, that works for an article" and hammered it out in 15 minutes while drinking white claws.I usually don’t mind Mark’s articles but this one was pretty thoughtless.
Well, blue and gold, but ok.He's right that Tech is a great academic school, where recruiting will always be a challenge. But, it seems to me like he's missing a more colorful story. Even though Georgia has no academic impediments to interfere with recruiting, the last team from this state to win a national championship in football was wearing white and gold, not red and black.
