Random Thoughts & Monday Musings...


So now we're really in limbo with the Super Bowl over & no football until spring practice starts in late March. Time to start re-watching games from last season & scouting out next year's opponents. Lots going on over the weekend....
  • Al Groh signed a two year contract as defensive coordinator & will make $150,00 a year with an automatic bonus of $321,000 on or before January of 2012. Tech has an option for a third year at a minimum of $344,000. The sweeteness of the deal is that UVA is getting the shaft. Groh is due $4.15 million over the next two seasons from UVA, the remainder of his contract as head coach. Any money received from coaching elsewhere must be deducted from that amount during those two years. So we pay him a paltry (by coaching standards) $150,000 per year with a huge bonus after his UVA contract is up, shafting UVA & making everyone on our side feel warm & fuzzy.....
Hey Wahoos, Dan Radakovich, Al Groh, & CPJ just sent you a message.....
  • Ohh, Lane Kiffin, have you not any decency? A 13 year old? Really? Think you might be a bit premature? And the kid's parent's (loose use of vernacular, here), don't really see what the big deal is. Surely you jest...? That whole Todd Marinovich thing worked out so well for USC. While Kiffin might adhere to the letter of the law, his blatant disregard for the spirit is beginning to wear on us. Perhaps Walter Sobchak of Lebowski fame summed it up best in reference to Kiffin, "when he moved to Hollywood he had to go door to door to tell everyone he was a pederast." From your lips to God's ears, Walter....
  • A-back Roddy Jones will play baseball at Tech this spring. A baseball standout drafted by the Chicago White Sox in the 39th round out of high school, Jones will take part in Spring football practice. A busy fellow, young Mr. Jones....
  • Recruiting players you KNOW can't even get into school? Saint Richt goes Outlaw and sends his man to prep school for a year. Don't worry that they can't qualify, just keep that south Georgia pipeline open.....
  • Finally, we have the finest Institute of Technology in all the land. So why haven't we come up with something like this? Epic, epic, epic. Jumbotron, cannons, highlights, fireworks, more cannons. Seems like we missed the boat on this one. Isn't there a class that can do this for a project? For the good of Ma Tech....
  • Finally, this new 2009 football highlight video. We've tried several times to watch it but that infernal noise in the backround blinds us to the brilliance of the video. Boston's More than a Feeling...??? Seriously? Boston? Christ, give us the Phillipine Steve Perry belting out Don't Stop Believing. If you insist on that genre Working Man by Rush will do nicely. Just not Boston. Might we suggest some T.I.? Lil' Wayne?
