    This is a novel approach. Usually people just start a new thread... and then say all the same things that have already been said.

    One example:

    The story goes that in 2007 Caleb King and Jonathan Dwyer were the two top running backs in the state.
    UGA offered King leaving Dwyer for us. If Mark Richt had gone with Dwyer and left King for us or anybody else, how would that have worked out for us? Could we have gotten any feature back as good as Dwyer?

    I don't think King could've stayed eligible at Tech for 3 or 4 years.

          Paul Johnson needs go go for sure but the palyers all suck and they are slow and trash. How can you win games with Marshall at qb he’s the worst qb tech has ever had

          Hating on our coach is one thing, but disrespecting our players is crossing the line my man. I understand you frustration but do you think you can do better? Our players bust their butt's off being student athletes that deserve our respect and support no matter.

          Yeah I could go better to be completely honest. I could call a better game than any coach or player out there. Why do you put up with this they are worst team in the ACC ever year. They have to talent. Student athletes my ass it’s just a 4 or 5 year party and living off daddy’

    That's my point. We were lucky to have a great player with enough academics like Jonathan available to us. We're lucky UGA went for King. My UGA people say they could have had their pick of the two and UGA made the wrong choice.

    Call it luck or whatever you want, but the point is the talent was much better then than now and it's not close. The talent from 04-06 was much much better as well.

    Exactly. You're either part of the problem or part of the solution.

    That is totally unfair.

    How do you expect him to be nationally ranked in rushing yards per game, which, as we all know is more important than winning..

    How so? Puke has beat us, what, 4 of last 5?

    This ain’t about recruiting anymore. Lousy coaching has caught up to lousy recruiting and arrogance.

    Some are now saying it's Points Per Possession or more laughably, Yards Per Drive that prove how great the O is doing. I think you need to update the narrative you're keeping up with!

    Why is that laughable? Tempo teams inflate their offensive numbers with their pace. We do the opposite, because we don't get as many possessions as most teams. On the flipside, our slow pace of play protects our defense, so it turns out that our defense is even worse than the Total Defense stats show.

    I'd agree that yards per possession is mostly meaningless (what you do between the 20s doesn't matter if you can't put up points at the end of a drive), but I fail to see the flaw in using points per possession as a metric for offensive success.

    He has NO idea about Georgia Tech if he thinks it's a 4 to 5 year party school. He must has us confused with Uga.
