Is there any scenario you all see Pastner getting the Arizona job? Multiple sources say he’s interviewed already. There’s also talk of an extension. - Nononsense92
Ben: I mean, I’m sure there is some sort of potential scenario in which Pastner is offered and accepts the job at Arizona. However, I don’t think it’s very likely.
Jake: Honestly, I’ve kind of had my head in the same on a lot of things lately, and this is one thing in particular I just haven’t had the time to follow, and just hasn’t casually come up when I have gone looking.
If he does take the job is that a good or a bad thing for Georgia Tech? - Nononsense92
Ben: Your guess is as good as mine. Pastner has always had the most success, but I think he’s set up really well for the future. I would also wonder how his leave would potentially impact Tech’s recruiting class.
Jake: Gut tells me good. The guy everyone thought was whack just left us with a pile of money and relative success.
And if he is AZ bound; who is on TStan’s wish list? - DressHerInWhiteAndGold
Ben: Your guess is as good as mine, but I would hope TStan wouldn’t try to hire a Tech guy just to have a Tech guy. Go through your process and hire the best guy for the job.
Jake: That, I do not know.
It’s weird there’s this under the radar season going on with local KSU playing. Any thoughts on the wisdom of it with the benefit of hindsight? - Bill Brockman
Ben: I was kind of hoping it would be more out there, I guess. Like, I still don’t hear that much about it at all.
Akshay: It seems like spring FCS ball has had many of the same problems as fall FBS ball re: quarantines, contact tracing, and cancellations. I think the FCS had a good idea in theory with pushing to the spring to take advantage of potentially safer conditions and fewer attendance restrictions, but the reality of the situation hasn’t really allowed for either of those to exist. FWIW, that isn’t to say the FBS conferences made a better decision to play in the fall either — both situations have been ripe with pitfalls.
Jake: I think Akshay’s right. It is a little strange just how little I’ve seen or heard of it in the local news. But, then again, I have my biases, too.
Chris: I definitely agree with Akshay’s points about having the same problems and that makes it tough to offer some kind of judgement. It’s also hard because I think FBS and FCS have very different concerns. As everyone else also said though, it feels criminally under-publicized. People always complain about football being over after the Super Bowl, so why isn’t FCS capitalizing on that desire? It’s a golden opportunity to showcase it’s best teams on TV when there’s literally no other football competition.
Here’s the mail, it never fails.
Makes me want to wag my tail.
When it comes I wanna wail,
So my question this week is do you have a kids show that you have fond memories of that makes you feel embarrassed liking now? If you can’t tell I was a big Blue’s Clues fan. Also I liked little Bill, although that show know has many bad implications tied to it...
hope y’all have a good week,
Big E (submitted via email)
Ben: I was also a big Blue’s Clues fan! To date myself a bit, I remember when Steve left and Joe came onto the shoe.
Akshay: I was a big Blue’s Clues and Wiggles kid. I’m not necessarily ashamed of it honestly; the songs were catchy and the shows were extremely colorful and dynamic. Perfect kid TV fodder.
Jake: I feel you on your choice of show, but, being a Tech kid, it should be unsurprising that I was big on Thomas the Tank Engine and Bob the Builder. I think that’s pretty on brand.
Chris: Gonna 1-up Jake on the nerd stuff here - I loved Cyberchase, a show literally about math.
