Georgia Tech enters weird Photoshop recruiting fray

01:39 PM ET 05.17 | This year's college football offseason could go down as the Summer of Bad Photoshopping. There is the Florida coaching staff, which is attempting to redefine the entire medium with a series of horrendous MS Paint-style photo edits complete with hashtags. Wyoming has joined in. Oregon State is in the mix. Then there is Georgia Tech. Specifically, Yellow Jackets offensive graduate assistant Preston Pehrson, who joined Twitter on January 30, mostly to troll snowed-in Northerners. If it had remained Pehrson reminding potential Georgia Tech recruits that Southern cities have warmer weather than Northern cities, it would have remained annoying but innocuous. That, of course, was not good enough for Pehrson. He inevitably turned to that hot new recruiting tactic: Photoshopping.

Can't they use their last bowl game as a recruiting pitch?

I'm not seeing an example of Pehrson's photoshopping accompanying this article. I see a standard stock photo of Buzz (bust shot) with Bobby Dodd Stadium in the background (blond cheerleader noted).

Tinny, if you see fans in the pic they were surely photoshopped in. That place is usually empty on saturdays....except for one game every other year of course.

Subtle smack, if there is such a thing. ;-)
