Someone please explain this poster. Explain how this instills fear into the hearts of our foes. I am all for the cocky slogan, but the picture and the boxing montage are a bit much. This is silly.
Now for those of you who are just tuning into this blog after my long sabbatical, I am normally loathe to criticize Ma Tech. She stands for all I believe is right in the world, 99.9% of the time. But I have to take exception to this poster. What is the point of it? Do we want to say that if we cannot beat you on the field you had better believe we will take you down in 2 rounds? Are we shifting our recruiting strategy to former street brawlers? What does boxing have to do with football other than in both cases you have to be in relatively good shape and there is a possibility you will get seriously hurt? I guess I would have stuck to showing a still photo of CJ's sick catch in the NCST game, or Reggie holding up the Champs Sports Bowl trophy, or Tashard Choice blasting through the Miami line. We have so many great football moments for every single one of our would-be pugilists, it seems silly to focus on anything but their football glory on a promo poster.
What is even worse is that Tech fans, specifically me were just recently making fun of the slobbermouths for taking a shirts-off photo of their team. What is the deal with this? Are we campaigning to the NCAA to play shirts vs. skins football? I am all for a team slogan and promoting our team, but can it be about our tradition or the talent we have on The Flats this season, instead of how good we look all greased up?
Lets just hope we can move on from this embarassing episode. In the future, lets let the Co-Op department deal with Johnson & Johnson. Thanks to In Dodd We Trust for the photo. -yb
