Significant announcement at GT

  • There seems to be even an air of embarrassment on the Clempsen board. They appear not to want the title if they didn't win it on the field.

    With two more 6-6 years he'll be in O'Leary and Gailey territiory as far as wins and losses. When Radakovich leaves and a mystery man takes over as Athletic Director, what is the over/under on how long Paul Johnson would hang around? Hell, he might step down on his own. When the Len Bias cocaine scandal rocked Maryland, Coach Ross was completely clean, but he bailed because he knew the firestorm that was headed to College Park. Johnson may want to do the same. Sad as it may sound, it might be time for him to disassociate himself from our "rouge program".

    Also, does anybody know whether we can, or cannot compete for the division and conference championships now? And if we won, are we BCS Bowl eligible.

    if we go 6-6 the next two seasons for the same reasons we sucked last year, i'll go picket with you! but, it ain't gonna happen. we're gonna be better. especially in the 2012 season.

    as to how CPJ is thinking right now, that's anyone's guess. his public comments don't lead anyone to believe he's pissed at D-rad or the institute nor looking to get the hell out. if we'd lost schollies, bowl possibilities, and were seriously hampered with recruiting restrictions i think he'd be much more inclined to look elsewhere. who wouldn't? but, that's not the case. he's not the kinda guy to see this probation as a roadblock to success but just one more mountain to climb in proving he's a superior head coach. unless a big-time program shows up on his doorstep offering him the world why would he leave? if anything, i think this program's gonna be so closely scrutinized by tech's internal folks and the NCAA he's not gonna have to worry about being blindsided by a major scandal.

    as for radakovich, i think this is a serious blemish on an otherwise successful career. he was torn up over this in the presser yesterday. he choked up in embarrassment and shame and it wasn't for show. i don't think he's been rendered ineffective by this probation, but he's been seriously bitten. obviously, he still has the confidence of the president and athletic department or he would be gone. the bigger question is will his role in putting us in this position cause him to be ineffective with tech supporters and the public? i hear very few fans/supporters calling for his ouster--now. but, time well tell . . .

    as for competing for div and conf championship i've seen nothing saying we can't. i'm sure that would have been listed as a specific bullet point of our probation.

    if the shoe were on the other foot, i sure wouldn't be touting our team as '09 ACC champs., but i'd sure be gunning for them in the upcoming season. just one more reason to kick their ass.

    I honestly don't know who we would get. This all came out of left field to me. I wake up yesterday and all the sudden we're getting hammered by the NCAA.

    As one who isn't sold on Paul Johnson, I hope it doesn't turn into Chan 2.0. There are some warning signs, but hopefully he can overcome them and get us where we need to be.

    I would hate to be on the same team(of any kind) with you. Teamwork means everyone should be pulling in the same direction. In the heat of battle some thing go wrong. The teams that survive are the ones that pull through together. I think Coach Johnson has done about as much with what he has anyone. Coach you have my loyalty and support. Go Jackets.

    GT Guy, I'm talking about the offense that was 6th in the ACC in scoring offense-the only thing that really matters-in 2008 and 2010.

    The scoring troubles were not because the offense failed. It was a case of butterfingers. We could run the ball all day. In fact, we were the best in the country at that. We just couldn't hold on to the ball.
