Congratulations to Ken Whisenhunt

While his heroics as the walk-on made good have taken on almost legendary status in his hometown of Atlanta and at Tech, I'm sure winning the Super Bowl is probably now tops on the list of lifetime accomplishments for Ken Whisenhunt - and congratulations to him for calling a very solid game, and putting his young QB in situations where he could succeed for the entire playoff run (seriously though, how on earth did we not recruit Big Ben? Ugh, his dad even PLAYED for Tech).

This story is old (from 2004 when Whisenhunt first took over in Pittsburgh), but it's a terrific look back at the legendary afternoon in 1980, and his career at Tech. It's worth a read, even if you already know how it turns out.
