Like others, my first thought was he was on a 3 day bender and once he sobered up he had 20 minutes to write an article. The AJC should be embarrassed but I don't think that is possible.

No one with an IQ over 80 would think Butch Jones and Collins are alike, if they spend anytime around them at all. We found out that Jones was a dick and the players didn't actually like him at all. If Collins is faking that part, then he is a psychopathic genius.
I think he is still drunk. What journalist would write something like that about a new HC he's never even met and presumably never even attended a practice?
Nothing positive could come out of that article. It's just going to piss the coaching staff off and they will ignore him at press conferences and post game interviews.
Does he think Paul Johnson is going to invite him for a round of golf?

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.
There’s a reason why Mark Bradley is still at AJC while Shultz and DOB are at the Athletic. And it ain’t cause Bradley turned the Athletic down.

Most of what that article actually said was fair. It was the condescending tone with which it was written that pissed me off.

I don't think it's unreasonable for someone to say that CGC reminds them of Butch Jones. Jones came out of the gate on fire with recruiting and had that fanbase fired up. He sucked ass as an actual coach, but it's not like Collins has won a bunch of games yet. We have to prove ourselves before outsiders start taking us seriously. Until then, we'll hear stuff like this.

Peter Drucker said Geoff Collins eats Mark Bradley for lunch, any day, every day.

Oh, I'm sorry. Am I supposed to give a öööö about what he says?

Against my better judgement, I read that article this morning while waiting for my coffee. What a steaming hot pile of garbage. By his logic, I guess Mark Bradley is the best the AJC can do given all the challenges to print media.

Mark Bradley is a gagger blowhard. His tone towards Tech is always dismissive or condescending and his tone to the ööööhole is always effusive, a superabundance of secretions. He’s been playing fiddle for the menstrual red stain of our state for decades and that wasteful seed bed is exactly where he belongs.

I thought he would be full of all the taint flavored sandwiches he can eat.

Piss on 'em.

Disagree somewhat, i think his default is to be a troll. He is occasionally complementary and in those rare cases he usually goes way overboard. I recall some crazy stuff on CPJ, and even Reggie Ball.

didnt read
Same.
Everyone who did read it is responding the same way every Bradley article about Tech, Braves, Falcons has ever been written. He is a pure troll shock jock. Always condescending. Never with any meaningful information. Just talks öööö about the local teams. öööö that guy and the ajc. I haven’t read an ajc article in a long time.

Guys, calm down, Mark is just one person and he's free to express his opinion and this is just perfect bulletin board material we're looking for. He's doing us a favor!

Go Jackets!

*also, coit's post about Mark is embarrassing
