I said we needed to see improvement and we did.
Georgia Tech can win nine or 10 games. They will never do that consistently. That's my feeling ... because of the type of program this is.
I feel compelled to say that this decision will send shock waves through college athletics programs around the country. Playing college football, especially at a school like Georgia Tech, is a privilege, not a right. We must be able to set standards of conduct for our student-athletes, and we must be able to enforce and maintain discipline.
It's much easier on a younger person than an older person. I have tried unsuccessfully to battle it and to get control over it. My doctor told me if I continue working much longer I'm going to make myself sick. So basically I am going to retire and try to get my health back in order and try to live as normal a life a person can who has this disease.
If it follows the course it's on right now it's almost dead certain we'll have to move it one way or the other. The safety of the fans and the players is the most important thing so we're going to do whatever is necessary to take care of those things first.
