    Pretty good article which did point out both the good and the bad........I hope that ole Brainless was not right at the idea of only a seven win season but so far he is looking like Swanee the Great.......time to get it on.....

    Well, that's not exactly what he said. He said we should be satisfied with 7. To shut up and enjoy 7. NOBODY enjoys 7 wins lol!

    I have to disagree. About 80% of TechNation is thrilled with 7 wins.. The Bowl Streak stays alive. We have more wins than we have losses. And, we are in the top five in rushing yardage. What more could we ask?

    Braine should have been fired the day after he said that 7 wins was all GT could resonably expect. But, that was his vision and he went out and hired Gailey and let him miss the first recruiting season. He most likely gave Gailey the idea that mediocre performance was all that was needed.

    I think CPJ has the fire to get it done but he sure seems to be using tunnel vision to get it done. I had high hopes when he was first hired.

    But, I still don't buy for a NY minute that GT is not able to field a very competitive football team. Hell you are not starting with a program that has never been competitive.

    The right guy can get it done. Only time will tell if CPJ is the right guy. Maybe he is spending too much time on the golf course?

    Hey, that actually wouldn't be too bad if we actually were 4th best in the ACC. Would have meant 9+ wins in every season from 2010-2013 and multiple appearances in the ACC title game. Would've been the greatest 6 year run in program history. Unfortunately, we are not that.

    I know I am cherry-picking the numbers, but compare wins over the last few years and tell me who is on the rise and who is stagnant.
    i
    Duke 2007, one win (Roof was coach); 2010, 3 wins Cutcliffe, and 2013 10 wins Cutcliffe.


    Tech 2007, 7 wins (Gailey fired) ; 2010, 6 wins, Paul Johnson ; 2013 7 wins, CPJ.


    yes, I know this is unfair, but what is the trend? Who is improving? Certainly Duke may be a flash in the pan and go 3-9 this fall, but by the same token, they may have arrived. They may be poised to take our seat at the Coastal Table. For years now, we have been trying to unseat VPI as the ruler of the Coastal. We eked out one championship and relinquished that. Duke is at least showing signs of getting it done. We are showing nothing. We are poised on a relapse to the Lewis years in next 90 days. The Kool-Aid Klan have their hopes pinned on a kid that NOBODY wanted as a quarterback, who could not beat out Vad Lee. I have been saying it for several seasons now, in concert with some of my learned bretheren--Paul Johnson is leading us to where Wake and NCST and Virginia live. There are double-digit losses lurking around the corner. Losing Autry and losing Custis didn't cast a pall (no pun) over our program. Players like Perkins, and Kallon,and Waller, and Days, and Morgan Bailey---players that stayed but can't play--those are the things that have brought us down.
