    Dude, if you're comping choppers for Tech, you're not just drinking the juice; you're squeezing the orange. I love rich alumni.

    Collins is such a marketing genius that he even got UGa to promote Waffle House while trying to connect themselves to Atlanta.

    Advertising and marketing make me feel physically and spiritually ill, but there isn't really a moral I won't forsake if it means we start crushing redneck skulls from redneck schools.

    That was by far the strangest most copycat thing about that. There are Waffle Houses in Athens, and every other city in the SEC and ACC. There's even a Varsity in Athens :rotfl:

    A glance at the rankings reveals that we truly are in a whole new universe with respect to recruiting. Then check out the measurables on the players, and we are getting bigger overall with just one class. It is still a gradual process, but if we can get contributions from four or five from the class of 2020 next season, combined with our existing roster and 2019 redshirts, we can fill a large portion of our existing needs immediately.

    I guarantee Gibbs is watching who signs with Tech and can envision being a part of that class.

    It should be renamed from "The Varsity" to "The Repeat Offenders."

    My favorite part is at the 2:09 mark, when he references his class from 2007. Or as he so eloquently put it, "The greatest recruiting class in the history of college football." Can't question the man's positivity! Heck, relative to expectations maybe it was... Go Jackets!! #GOLDblooded20

    My favorite is at the very end talking about Johnson's mom's athletic career (I think it was him). Something like...

    "She was a 2 time All-American....at a school about NINETY-MINUTES (emphasis) northeast of Atlanta."

    :lol2: So friggin funny.

    I didn't think anyone could be a better troll than CPJ, except maybe Spurrier. Geoff has corrected me, and he does it in a way even WSB chuckles at.

    On the radio the other day, he referenced the class he had a hand in at Bama as the greatest in the history of college football. Had Julio Jones and a bunch of people.

    He's talking about the Alabama class when he was recruiting coordinator.

    I think that is the one he was intending to reference and got his wires crossed on the year

    I liked the well placed Varsity cup swig with a bottle of water on the table.

    Both are correct answers, if you lopk at them a certain pair of ways.

    Greatest GT class ever was 1975. So say me.

    Is there any way to look at data on that? Not questioning your judgement, I’m just really into history especially where sports are concerned and would love to dive in to looking at the class and the ramifications of it.
