    Leave the ADs out of this.

    The sucking up to ESPN is by the presidents.

    Why? Because they're university presidents!!!

    When it came to athletics did you see what came out of the 16th floor for about 25 years beginning in the late 80s?

    Great point, but our last AD defined puppet and there are many more puppet ADs in this cluster doing what their woke bosses are telling them to do.

    Re: USC, UCLA to Big 10?

    I wonder if all of this would be going on if the PAC 12 and ACC had agreed to the increase in the playoff formats?

    The SEC & B1G kind of fired a warning shot when it was voted down -

    Is this the result of that?

    The only place for Tech going forward in all of this shuffling about is to become an ass kicker. Beat everyone you play as soundly as you can, schedule up at every opportunity and beat them too. Nice guys like Holtz tried to play it, finish last. When everybody respects who you are and wants to share in it by being associated with you, youíll get more of what you want.

    No any P5 AD except Jack Swawbrick or President except John Jenkins would move his school into the Big 10 or SEC tomorrow, if given the chance. Clemson and FSU would be in the SEC already, if not for the worst media rights agreement imaginable.

    This alignment has nothing to
    do with access, only money. UCLA has not had a top 8 or 12 team this century. They aren't thinking national championships. USC, Texas and UCLA have never made the play-offs. Texas and ULCA wouldn't be favorites to make it even if they would have expanded. The play-offs will expand in 2026 anyway. The increase USC and UCLA will see in conference pay-outs will soon be bigger than our entire athletic budget, These P5 realignments have nothing to do with access, rivalries, tradition, the athletes. Only money or survival. In this case, with these two schools, only money. The Big 10 already has the highest pay-out per school. They just added two schools in the second largest tv market in the most populated state.

    I haven't watched a large school football game in a long time except when TECH plays them. I am definitely not going to start now. I like the atmosphere around the non power schools more.

    Remember when we once expected to actually "compete" in those games? Hope that changes, but that part of Tech football culture disappeared over the past 9 years.

    The best part about watching the P5 teams play? Seeing all the empty seats.

    We don't need to scare the hell out of somebody. We need to BEAT somebody for a change.

    Well it stands to reason if we scare Clemson we should kill Missouri. Missouri is only a 20 point favorite at the moment. Clemson loses three games in a season, finish out of the top 4 and people think they are toast. They still have the nations longest home winning streak at 34 wins. Plus have won 10 or more games 11 years in a row. Only them and Bama can say that.

    I’m ready for this too. So many schools out there have giant killers since the last time we were. It’s time for us to have the combo of coaches and players to get there again.
