Shorter CPJ: “Sure, I cheated at Monopoly. Who hasn’t?!”
Paul Johnson is insulted at the insinuation that he would cheat. He’d never cheat.
At least, not as a coach.
“I’m sure I cheated in board games,” the Georgia Tech coach said. “And when I played, yeah, you’d do stuff. Move the ball forward. Move it back. Kick it. Maybe grab a guy where you’re not supposed to. But heck, everybody does that.”
Count me as one that has never grabbed a guy “where you’re not supposed to.” But hell, I’m old fashioned. I never realized ol’ Fish Fry was that, er, progressive.
Ideally the rest of the presser would have played out like this –
Reporter: “Coach, what if the NCAA gets in your face and won’t stop?”
CPJ: “Punch them in the nose.”
