Since we've invaded your blog in preparation for the Orange Bowl, a number of us Hawkeye fans have noticed a tendency for many of you Tech fans, when referring to your coach, to always use the nomenclature of "Coach Paul Johnson" or "CPJ" (if you are in to that whole brevity thing, man). And I have to ask, what gives? Not that there's anything wrong with it, but it just seems (a) a little forced and (b) pretentious. Are there a bunch of Paul Johnsons on the Georgia Tech you're trying to differentiate him from?
It seems particularly odd because the only other fanbase I've ever seen regularly use such designations is your hated in-state rival, the Georgia Bulldogs. It is never "Richt", "Mark Richt" or even "Coach Richt", it is always "CMR" or "Coach Mark Richt". Is this just some Georgian patois? Because I realy can't imagine either fanbase wants to be accused of copying the other.
Thanks for shedding some light on this.
