    How to Build a Bully

    Interesting article about Stanford. It is a shame that Tech players don't have a "unique psychology" or an "inherent competitiveness".

    This sounds like a dang good blueprint to follow.

    This is one way that a team can play "smart" football. This is one way an academically advanced school can gain an edge over the factories. I had always liked the idea of working (playing) smarter rather than working (playing) harder. I have often wondered how we could leverage our smart, driven players who may not necessarily rank high in stars, into some benefit on the playing field. I thought PJ's offensive would be a way that we could use our brains and drive to gain an advantage over the big, dumb, pro offense approach, and I think it could be an advantage if we had the hosses. Since we cannot get the hosses, this could be a blueprint for growing the hosses in house from the raw material we have. They are above average smart and presumably very driven, they just need the right "recipe" for success. It could happen.

    Go JACKETS! THWG!

    Allways chuckle at Bill Curry talking about Coach Dodd on utube.....specially part of palying Gerogie...main point is that for years we have always thought we ware smarater than the ave bear and if it came to smarets.........we would win.There is a four part utube section on Coach Dodd talking to the Marietta TD clud and being introduced by Marvin Tebbets who played safety and qb for him.Young lads will not watch it but Dodd says that one thing that kills a football team is mental errors and of course penalties.........he gets riled up about this and funny thing is what happened then is still around today.We still make mental errors and mistakes that hurt us....lot of folks do but we dont have the horses to make a mistake like off sides and get a penalty and its now first and fifteen.Pros are awful at mental errors so smarts I think do come into play.I agree whole heartedly that we have a offense (which I am not fond of) that when attached to proper players is very hard to stop and its fun to watch ....so far we have not got it together physiclally but I hope we are better mentally this year since we cant afford to be otherwise.

    Do you think CPJ, his staff, or any of GT's administrators have paid any attention to what has been going on at Stanford? Have any of them said anything about it?

    Not to my knowledge. It seems to me they aren't aware of what's going on at Georgia Tech half the time.

    Lets run down Stanford from Willingham's 9-3 year in 2001 losing to....GT in the Seattle Bowl to the middle of the Harbaugh era.
    2-9
    4-7
    4-7
    5-6
    1-11
    Harbaugh hired
    4-8
    5-7
    8-5

    Hot garbage for 6 years after Willingham's decent run.
    Walsh had 2 crap years, 1 great.
    Dennis Green 2 crap 1 decent (losing to GT in Aloha. Big Play Willie Clay!)
    Jack Elway 4 crap 1 decent.
    You have to go back to Walsh's first stint in the late 70's for 2 seasons like Harbaugh had.
