Well Check That Off The List

Well it looks like Tech has a new AD and much like the tide, death, and taxes half of the fan base is inevitably upset about it.

I never really got the whole infatuation with Curry. Sure, he went to Tech, but so do half of the mouth-breathers on the Internet that make me question daily the actual value of my degree. Beyond that a 79-98-4 record over 6 seasons as HC, a defection to Alabama, and an absolutely stunning head of hair do not really an AD make. Despite the support of a group that spends much of their time wishing the NCAA would force men’s basketball players to wear those really short shorts again.

(Feathered and beautiful. They don't make it like that anymore Cotton.)

I fully support the new hire and hope for good things to come. Nathan has a much more detailed and articulate take here.


Okay, I can't stand this fucking "Tech Man" nonsense any longer. Bill Curry road the fucking M-train through Tech in the 60's and was our head football coach 20 GODDAMN YEARS AGO! What is with this belief that somehow this will give him some kind of mystical insight into the actual daily running of the athletics deparments? Or what we need as a program in 2006.

He has no relative nor recent administrative experience other than telling the make-up women to apply more foundation so that he can look younger than Lou Holtz. I thought engineers were fucking logical.

The absolute best part of having a blog.

Getting the last word. Great rant my friend.

The Tech Man argument is just tiresome. My favorite argument was when one of the plastic hippers on the Hive actually saying that he remembers when the young trusted in the judgement of their elders and thus we should hire Curry.
