One good thing about UGA winning

Much stronger patterns than this have not come to fruition. Nothing good will come from a UGA natty, other than the fact that it wakes the rest of the US up to how boring, lame, and regionalized college football is. If UGA wins something, it's probably a sign that that thing is stupid.

UGA is now recruiting 5*s from all over the country. They are not much interested in 4*s from Georgia. Possibly good for GT.

There are not that many five stars out there. :)The majority of their recruits will always be 4 stars. Since Kirby took over, they've had 28 five stars, 96 four stars, and 42 three stars.

They got 6 four stars out of Georgia for next year's class. We got three.
But every major program recruits heavily out of Georgia, Florida, Louisiana, Ohio, Texas, and California.

Every time UGA has won a natty, we’ve won one 10 years later ( UGA 1942 Tech 1952 UGA 1980 Tech 1990). We were arguably in the same place in 1980 as we are today so it’s not impossible. Georgia Tech 2031 National Champs, go ahead and book it.
Not a chance in hell under the current college football landscape of NIL, player free agency and the outright paying players to play “college” football.

The current structure designed by ESPN and the SEC is to completely eliminate The possibility of an Georgia Tech, Oklahoma State, Boise State, TCU or Cincinnati from ever occupying a spot in the college football playoff that will cost them money because they do not have hundreds of thousands of bandwagon fans.

it’s all about the money now. It didn’t used to be like that. It’s a completely different game now, and Georgia Tech and the smaller schools will be irrelevant.

Yea, laughable when GT, or anyone else not named UGA, Bama, Ohio State, etc., talks of National championships. We should be talking of breaking the top 25 every once in awhile.

Paul Johnson said it. The last team to win a national championship in 40 years of college football with a stadium capacity of under 85,000 was Georgia Tech 1990.

It’s just not realistic.

Let me ease off the '31 national title prediction. Unless we make changes, we start at Alabama in '31and finish with Georgia at home.

It has ALWAYS been about money. This isn’t some new phenomenon.

Yes, but money can affect the game more or less. If the NCAA passed a new rule saying highest bidder just straight up wins a game, money would matter more than it does now, right. With the NIL rules, money affects the game more than it did before the NIL. The NIL makes a more direct connection between money and winning.

I thought your prediction was accurate, thinking you meant to make it in the basketball forum.

NIL, flagrant paying players, player portal free agency and differences of $40-$50 million payouts per year to teams playing in the SEC vs. ACC is new. It’s not a game changer. It’s a game destroyer.
