Simple elegance is an underrated aspect of negative recruiting

"Come to Georgia Tech. It's pretty neat, I guess." -- Paul Johnson's interior monologue, probably (AP) "Come to Georgia Tech. It's pretty neat, I guess." -- Paul Johnson's interior monologue, probably (AP)

The best case against elite college football prospects going to Georgia Tech that we've ever heard comes courtesy of ... Paul Johnson? As told to the AJC (emphasis ours):

Johnson has heard it all while trying to attract recruits to Georgia Tech since 2007, and offered some candid thoughts on negative recruiting:

“I think a lot of it is out there,” he said. “I don’t hear as much about the (offense or SEC) in negative recruiting as I do ‘Your school is hard, and you don’t have any fun.’

Simple. Direct. To the point. There's a lot to admire here, from a hater's standpoint. This reminds us of nothing so much as our college roommate's endlessly useful, never-fail breakup argument, the Avada Kedavra of coed slams: "Because you smell, and I don't love you anymore."
