Jason never quite lived up to the expectations at Tech, IMO

Peters is living proof Gailey recruited better players than PJ. His nickname should.ve been IHOP he was pancaked so often, but PJ never could recruit anyone better.

I am not endorsing this as true….and Unrelated to this story above but, FITS.com has a well written story about Sammy Watkins’ recruitment and improper benefits to his family at a hotel during his recruitment. This could be HUGE.

Congratulations, Jason. To all you making your disparing comments, all I have to say is that he’s leaving with a GA Tech degree and a chance to play pro ball. I’d say his future is looking bright. He’ll be laughing at your comments all the way to the bank.

Jacket Man – Great response to Dodd Ghost. The retard has once again turned the story line into juvenile and degrading remarks in a lame attempt to slam Coach Johnson and perpetuate the notion that Gailey was the saviour of Tech football – rather than give props to Jason for being selected to play in the All-Star game. Whether or not Jason was a great player or mediocre – whether or not he was recruited by Gailey or Johnson – whether or not he graduates with a 4.0 or 2.0 – has no bearing on this announcement. Praise on him for his selection and being a representative of Ga Tech in this game – and wish him well in the future – what ever that might hold for him.

What’s the inside scoop on Burnett’s injury he sustained in Sun Bowl? I heard his injury was perhaps career-ending?

Congrats to Jason, great work.
To the others who want to make issues of this, when are you going to realize that CFB has changed and the days of Bobby Dodd are no more and never will be. $$$$ and TV have ruined the game as it used to be.
