The ACC School Mount Rushmores: Georgia Tech FINAL

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.

The ACC School Mount Rushmores: Georgia Tech

The Confidential has been having some fun with league-wide coaches Mount Rushmores.  Football and Basketball, plus polls for each of football and basketball to share your thoughts.  In fact, it was so sufficiently fun and controversial that we are going to do school-wide Mount Rushmores now.  And we will only put three people on the list, leaving you–our readers–to comment as to who should be the fourth.  We will not do polls anymore.  For today, let’s go with a school with a rich ACC history: Georgia Tech.
