We left it up to the fans to decide the final two spots. And we are not ready to announce the final Georgia Tech Mount Rushmore.
There was a clamoring of support for John Heisman, of Heisman Trophy fame. Fair enough. The trophy alone is a reason to give him some consideration. Although he spread out his work over several schools, he did win 100 games for Georgia Tech–in an era of 9 game seasons. And he spent most of his time with the Yellow Jackets. That’s good enough for the Confidential to land the third spot.
The fourth spot is tougher. But Bobby Cremins really put Georgia Tech on the hoops map–especially during the glory days of the 1980s. Moreover, he took over a struggling program–and yet made it nationally relevant. Nine straight Big Dance appearances during one particular span.
So that gives us a Georgia Tech Mount Rushmore of: Dodd, Price, Heisman, and Cremins.
