For UGA's sake, don't fire Paul Johnson: An open letter to Georgia Tech AD Mike Bobinski

Mr. Bobinski

I’m sure you’ll think it a bit odd being addressed from a group of Georgia fans. After all, we are the enemy, and we certainly don’t have any illusions about the folks on North Avenue liking us any more than we like them.

But we’ve heard rumblings…rumors, if you will…that this is a make or break year for your head football coach, Paul Johnson.

Please don’t say it’s so. We refuse to believe it.

Paul Johnson is one of the best things that’s ever happened to UGA football. Seriously, is there another team Georgia faces on yearly basis that can be so predictable, and who can find new and entertaining ways to lose games?

With CPJ at the helm, the insufferable little Yellow Jackets have become a mere annoyance to the Bulldogs, going just 1-5 against Georgia since he took over on the Flats in 2008. The only Georgia Tech victory came in his first season, when his oh-so-amazing triple-option offense was something our boys had never seen.

Now it’s just like another scrimmage.

We’d normally keep our pug-noses out of what happens over there, but this is a matter of great concern to us.

We love coach Johnson, and we want him to stay around Georgia Tech as long as humanly possible. I mean, the man is obviously a Georgia fan…why else would he call plays the way he does against our Dawgs? He’s a guaranteed notch in the win column now, regardless of what happens during the offseason. With Johnson keeping things so mediocre there, the Dawgs are assured a victory over at least one of their big rivals every season.

That’s not something the Bulldogs are willing to just let walk away.

We know you have a lot to consider, and a lot of work to do trying to keep the Yellow Jacket football program as prosaic as possible, that’s why even considering a new coach would be a huge mistake.

What if you got someone with a personality, who cared, and who actually had a game plan besides run, run, run, pass…run, run, run, pass? It might really turn things upside down over there and cause students to come home with a B in a crucial course because they were so wrapped up in a football game.

You can’t have that on your conscience, can you?

No, we implore you to just keep things at the status quo over there, and not make a decision that could prove even more embarrassing than the “You can do that!!” dude.


The Bulldog Nation

P.S. – If by some strange act of God, the Yellow Jackets walk out of Sanford Stadium with a win this year, please disregard this letter and can Johnson’s ass as soon as possible. Thanks.
