    Perception is reality.

    I don't necessarily agree with all of this, but the writer (UNC grad) makes some interesting points, most of which are rooted in the cold, hard facts of Paul Johnson's accomplishments, or lack thereof.

    Honestly this seems like a disgruntled UNC alum taking his opportunity to take a cheap shot. But I do agree about his points about CPJ being perceived as a prickly old man by opposing teams and undoubtedly recruits. But as every GT die fan can attest to, that's only part of the problem with our recruiting - and it's definitely not at the top of the list.

    100% a butthurt UNC fan. UNC fans are the worst. Maybe coaches think he's a prick but it's been documented that recruits like PJ. One big time recruit that was being recruited by all of the factories said that the coolest coach he talked to was Johnson. That article is pure BS and not backed up by facts.

    Recruits, almost unanimously, like PJ. Honesty, and they call him fun too. This is just a whiny UNCheat bitch. Move along.

    I just wish the rest of us (some of us) could see what these recruits see.

    He didn't seem like such a smug prick back in 2008 and 2009, did he? You know and I know that his demeanor has nothing to do with it. Folks are disgruntled with the results.

    Good editorial, I agree with most of it.

    Bobby Godd never, not once, ever blamed his boys for a loss. It was always on his shoulders, and his shoulders alone. That is greatness. This is not. --YukonWreck

    Certainly this is a board and everyone is entitled to their opinion. It is just that mine is right and yours is wrong. --91Wreck

    When everything is working, you can be an asshole. Nobody cares as long as it gets the job done. Does Saban strike anybody as a warm guy?
