That would be a great trip, but not to see Tech run by Paul Hewittt. I will use the Christmas money to follow Paul Johnson and the Jackets in a Bowl game. Must better investment of my money.

I remember when Richmond used to give Cremins a headache every game.

That’s interesting, considering Paul Johnson has never won a bowl game with Tech…should be an exciting year in basketball though!

@Sal-I’d rather see CPJ lose a bowl game then watch our un-coached, undisciplined, turnover-happy basketball team run by “Coach” PH lose.
