Can Georgia Tech finally win at Virginia?

Five burning questions as we head into the weekend:

 

1. Can Georgia Tech win on the road again? The Yellow Jackets have already won impressively at Florida State and Mississippi State. But winning at Charlottesville has proven to be a tough thing to do lately for Tech. I was at Virginia in 1990, the last time Georgia Tech won up there in what was one of the better games I have ever seen. Tech has played in Charlottesville eight times since and lost some heartbreakers. In 1999 Tech was 6-1 and ranked No. 7 when the Jackets lost 45-38. In 2001 they were 6-2 and lost 39-38. This season Virginia and Al Groh seemed headed off the deep end when they started 0-3. Now they have won three straight and are starting to find some answers on offense. This will not be an easy game for Georgia Tech. In case you were wondering about those eight Georgia Tech losses they were:

1992: L, 55-24

1995: L, 41-14

1997: L, 35-31

1999: L 48-35

2001: L, 39-38

2003: L, 29-17

2005: L, 27-17

2007: L, 28-23

 

2. How badly will Alabama take Jonathan Crompton out of his comfort zone? The Tennessee quarterback had an excellent game against Georgia on Oct. 10. But in that game he had time to throw because Georgia could not put pressure on him. The Alabama defense does a lot of things well. But one  thing the Bama defense does very well is take quarterbacks out of their comfort zone. Tyrod Taylor (Virginia Tech), Ryan Mallett (Arkansas), Jevan Snead (Ole Miss) and Stephen Garcia (South Carolina) combined for 38.5 percent passing against the Alabama defense. Here is the breakdown of what the Alabama defenses did against these quarterbacks:

Quarterback———————-Att/Comp——–Yds——TD—–Int

Tyrod Taylor (Va. Tech)———-9/20————–91——-0——-0

Ryan Mallett (Ark)—————-12/35———–160——-1——-1

Jevan Snead (Ole Miss)————11/34———140——–0——4

Stephen Garcia (S. Carolina)———20/46———214———0——1

Total—————————52/135 (38.5 pct)—-605——-1——-5

 

3. Can Clemson do Georgia Tech a favor and knock off Miami? Clemson really impressed me last week when the Tigers dominated Wake Forest 38-3. You normally don’t see a Jim Grobe team get beat that badly. With RB C.J. Spiller and QB Kyle Parker, and an improving defense, Clemson has enough athletes to make a game of it if the Tigers don’t beat themselves with dumb mistakes. Georgia Tech basically needs Miami to lose if the Jackets are going to have a realistic chance of winning the Coastal Division and going to the ACC championship game.

 

4. Can Boston College beat Notre Dame for the seventh straight time?  This series is tied at 9-9 and the Eagles always seem to give one of their better efforts against their sister Catholic institution. Notre Dame lost a gut-wrencher last week at home to Southern Cal. How much did that take out of the team? Jon Tenuta’s Irish defense is still struggling. Boston College has found a running back in sophomore Montel Harris, who had 264 yards and scored five touchdowns in a 52-20 win over N.C. State. If Notre Dame (4-2) loses it will eliminate any hope the Irish had of going to a BCS bowl.

 

5. Can Auburn get back on track? The Tigers started 5-0 and got their fans, many of whom were expecting the worst in the first year under Gene Chizik, a little excited. But in the past two weeks Auburn has struggled, first on the road against Arkansas (a 44-23 loss) and then at home against Kentucky (a 21-14 loss). Now the questions abound. Auburn had only one offensive touchdown against Kentucky. Quarterback Chris Todd, who started out so hot, has cooled considerably as defenses have adjusted. The defense had problems against a Kentucky team that had lost its starting quarterback. But in the SEC it’s tough to get things turned around once they start going sour. You just don’t have many chances to breathe. Auburn has to figure things out during a trip to LSU. Auburn hasn’t won in Baton Rouge since 1999, Tommy Tuberville’s first season as coach. Two years ago LSU threw a touchdown pass with one second left to win 30-24.

Here are the results of Auburn’s last four trips to LSU:

 

2001: L, 27-14

2003: L, 31-7

2005: L, 20-17

2007: L, 30-24

(1) Wow. That’s a strange statistic. Virginia over Georgia Tech in a 7-game home field winning streak dating back to 1995. Following an emotional upset win over Virginia Tech, perhaps an upset loss to Virginia is almost predictable, but that’s why they play the games.

(2) Tennessee QB Crompton is not going to have a good day against Alabama. His line can’t protect him against lesser defenses, let alone Alabama’s. The Volunteers fall to 1-3 in the SEC.

(3) No, Clemson will not knock off Miami, but some other team remaining on their schedule will. Maybe an unexpected ACC school. Maybe South Florida in the season finale.

(4) I wouldn’t bet on this game, but I’ll call it “even money” that Boston College beats Notre Dame again. The streak continues. If so, any hope of a BCS bowl is over for the Irish.

(5) The loss to Kentucky was a surprise, but Auburn’s game with LSU is a real test. I expect LSU to win. No shame in that for Auburn; the AU Tigers have already exceeded expectations for 2009 and are laying the groundwork for the future.

Atlanta Gator, if Miami loses to South Florida, it wouldn’t really help GT much would it? Seeing as its not an ACC game and all….

I predict a Tech win and (unfortunately) a Miami win. Both teams are looking like they will win out the rest of their schedules. But still plenty of time for either to slip up.

It is good that we give courtesy to UVA by making them feel like they have a chance in this game. Now, to speak the truth: They have NO chance at all, streak or not. They are a subpar (at best) team that lost to William and Mary. Their three wins are to Indiana (basically a 1-AA team), UNC (middle of the road, I guess) and Maryland (the other school in their division who lost to a 1-AA opponent). As a fan, I can focus a few games down the road, which is a luxury that GT can’t afford to do. So, I hope Tech doesn’t break down in this one, which they are notorious for doing the week after a big win. I am thinking that I will be able to take a nap in the second half of this one.

b-dubs—-As a Gator alumnus who also attended an academically prominent ACC university, I am well aware of the original membership of the ACC, the withdrawal of South Carolina, the addition of Georgia Tech and Florida State, and the most recent conference expansion to include 12 teams. I can also tell you about the history of John Allen, the founding president of South Florida, and how his guiding educational philosophy kept USF out Division I football for over 25 years after his retirement.

So, yes, I am well aware that USF is not a member of the ACC. It was Tony’s point that Clemson could help Tech, not mine.

Miami may contend for an ACC title this year if the Canes win out, but they will not contend for the national title because they will lose again —- either in ACC competition or otherwise. The Canes aren’t ready to compete at their former level just yet.

Tech is not going to win out. They’ll get throttled by UGA. Bank on it.

Tech is just not that talented. Johnson is living on a gimmick offense and Gailey’s recruits. All this Johnson love (pun intended) by the Techies is going to go out the door once he has to play with his own recruits. Which will be weak. If you’re a big time QB prospect, do you go to Tech to run the wishbone? Same for big time RB’s and WR’s. Recruits with any thoughts of playing at the next level are not going to go to Tech. Granted, it’s the ACC, and you don’t need a ton of great players to win in that conference. But, even there, Tech’s will be weak. Again, bank on it.

And you UF people ought to watch out as well. UGA is down, but not so down that it can’t beat a UF team that is clearly not as good as it has been in previous years. UF should have lost to Arkansas (UGA won) without the help of some terrible officials. UGA should have beat LSU (UF barely handled them) if not for the same terrible officials. Just saying, the Gators are not the juggernaut they have been. I wouldn’t be confident if I were a Gator fan.

If bama is found to have cheated with the tape incident (which wouldn’t surprise me) even though such a small thing obviously would not have any affect on the outcome of the game, would they be required to forfeit those wins? Would there be any consequences at all. And if so, would that eleminate them from contention for any type of championship? Would that be FUNNY or what!!! Or, would that be sad? I guess it depends on your point of view. From my point of view…I might still be laughing during the fireworks display in July.

FSU plays at UNC tonight.

An FSU loss all but eliminates any FSU hopes for ACC-A title.
An FSU win likely sets up the Clemson-FSU game as the ACC-A title game.

If Clemson beats Miami, along with ANY FSU loss, it practically guarantees a Clemson-GT rematch for the ACC-CG.

To Mr. Time, since you are by no means a big-time recruit, you just don’t understand football. For one thing, any big time defensive recruit would relish the opportunity to play for the Jackets. Why not? As for offensive recruits, again, why not? All football is about is blocking and tackling, no gimmicks. What you call gimmicks, I call schemes. And with schemes, you put people in the position to make plays. That is all that Johnson’s offense allows you to do.

If you can’t understand that, I feel sorry for you.

By the way, 45-42, and you folks had a better team last year.

Go Jackets…

I don’t see Miami winning the rest of the ACC games. GT beats UVA and guess who is moving up in the BCS standings. This is the last test GT has on their schedule.

Tony won’t tell you about what happened after GT won that game in 1990. He’s still trying to set the stage for a UF/Bama game for the N.C. to keep it in the SEC.

GT 12-1 and Tony will still be trying to get a SEC rematch (UF or Bama/LSU) with 2 loses in the National Championship Game.

It’s happening, deal with it.

Time

October 22nd, 2009

TDone. I’ve forgotten more about football in the last 5 minutes than you will probably ever know. There’s a reason why noone runs that offense anymore. Tech snuck up on a Bulldog team that has traditionally looked past weaker opponents with a offense noone has really seen in 40 years. Won’t be sneaking up on them this year. Even in a down year, with loads of youngsters starting, with some bad coordinators UGA wins this game

Not saying UGA is going to beat UF though. UF is still the more talented team. But, IMO, it will be alot closer than most think. UF is just not the juggernaut they have been the past few years. Great team, but not the unstoppable force that some seem to think they are.

LSU can be beaten. Florida proved it; Georgia and Mississippi State came close to proving it. LSU had last week off following their loss to Florida, so they will be rested and ready to redeem themselves.

But can Auburn get back on track and show some promise? Can the defense start making some stops; the offense show some life again and the entire team get their penalty problem under control? I guess we’ll find out soon enough.

RE: the ‘Bama kicker and spotting the ball. My belief is that if it didn’t get called in the game, it goes along with all of the other missed calls that happen in every game. Let it go.

UGA would have rolled Virginia Tech as they had virtually no defense…JC would have picked them apart through the air, but again with VT not being a premier program, would it have even mattered? Not so much.

Was he a big QB recruit? Not even close.
Had he run the option before? Nope.

If Johnson can get him to perform at this level, imagine what he can do with a recruit he wants that has run the triple option before. Your logic is completely flawed.

And you really want to rely on your ranking to justify your position? Right, those rankings really mean a whole lot. UGA was ranked #1 in the preseason last year, that didn’t work out so well for the Dawgs. So, you might want to think about not basing your belief of the strength of your team on those meaningless rankings.

Eric,

I see you and The Family are still hoping the NCAA will beat Bama for you.

I also see the Tech fans are starting to buy into the 12-1 BCS Championship dream much as the Hokies had just last week. Let’s be honest (and not unrealistically optimistic), Tech will lose at least one more conference game this year. That’s just how the ACC works. And, if you were able to run the table, you would be smashed to bits by Bama or Florida.

Time,
Key phrase there: “UGA is down.” That is quite possibly the understatement of the century. UGA will be a 5 loss squad this year, maybe 6 losses. You sound a little bitter. It might be because the bandwagon has left town. Also, Tech cannot “win out” if they lose to UGA. I thought that you Dawg fans said that teams would have caught on to the wishbone by now. I think it is working a bit better than Bozo’s offense this year, don’t you?? Don’t cry when GT puts 60 up against the Dawgs!! But, I am sure there will be an excuse for that. Bad calls, home field advantage, half the team is in the county lock-up, and my favorite: LUCK. It’s hard to luck up and score 45 points on a team.

October 22nd, 2009

Time you know nothing about offensive football. The Tech offense & the Florida offense are the same. They line up differently but the blocking schemes are virtually the same. The plays are virtually the same. Tech does not run a wishbone as Bobby Bowden is fond of saying. They run a spread option. They just line up differently.

Besides what difference does the offense make? UGA cannot block for their offense. If they changed offenses do you think they could block better? Offenses work because of blocking not because of the formation you line up in. If you cannot block a pro-set then you probably lose.

I love these puppy fans. They think if they keep saying over and over that Tech’s offense won’t work that it will become reality. The reality is UGA will have more talent than Tech every year and will still lose a majority of the time as long as CPJ is the head coach. You could give Wilie Martinez the Pittsburgh Steelers defense and he still couldn’t stop the option. So, that means you’ll have to rely on the red headed step child to outscore Tech. I like our odds on that one.

We aren’t going after the blue chip qb recruits. They don’t fit our system. In most cases the qbs we will be recruiting will be recruited by football factories but to play a different position. FYI, Nesbitt was recruited by UGA to play on the defensive side of the ball. Also, in terms of not being able to get wide receivers to play here, we got Stephen Hill over UGA this past year. We currently have the leading WR in the ACC who is tops in the nation in yards per reception.

Tough one but I think given how things are turning out, I’d much rather play for Paul Johnson. Question to you – Who do you think the NFL is looking at, Cox or Nesbitt? So if I was a big time QB prospect – I think I’ll go with Tech. And to say we are going to get “throttled” by UGA only shows your focus on Tech this year. who has UGA throttled exactly?

That worked out real well! A pre-season ranking is truly worthless as there has not even been one game played to see if prognosticators fantasies are close to reality.

I know it hurts that your precious pups are struggling and the won-loss record is not what you would like it to be, but that is the way the dog biscuit crumbles.

“If you’re a big time QB prospect, do you go to Tech to run the wishbone? Same for big time RB’s and WR’s. Recruits with any thoughts of playing at the next level are not going to go to Tech.”

Well, first we aren’t going after the same pocket passers that compromise most “big time QB prospects.” We are going after the Tebow, Pat White, Mike Vick, Tyrod Taylor etc. types. For example, I doubt Logan Gray would have gone to uog had Paul Johnson been at Tech during his recruiting. Will we get a great QB every year? Probably not. But you only need one every four or five years to be successful, and that’s all uog gets anyways (Stafford was the last great one y’all got, five years ago). We’ve already built some pretty good depth at the position, redshirting two guys including a four star and a three star. Not that stars matter in Atlanta. I know they do in Athens. But, like Spurrier said, georgia gets all these great players, you just never know what happens to them. I trust CPJ to scout talent better than the online recruiting sites who don’t coach and base their rankings off who offers who.

And re RB/WR, that’s just plain dumb.

RB stats, comparison between Tech and uog (and this isn’t including Nesbitt’s 625 rushing yards).

Dwyer, GT 593
Allen, GT 367
Samuel, uog, 335
King, uog, 135

Just to be clear, there are THREE players at Tech with more rushing yards than anyone at uog. So, you might be asking, why would you want to go to uog to be a third rate running back behind a subpar offensive line? Answer – you wouldn’t. That’s why Mack Brown didn’t go to uog. GT will be churning RBs into the NFL, starting with Dwyer. You’d be a fool to pick uog over TECH if you are a RB.

So that must mean that AJ Green is tearing it up, right? Yeah he is. 682 yards. BUT WAIT, Bey Bey has 671 yards and had more than Green until last game. With a relatively weak passing defense schedule remaining, Bey Bey should end up with more yards.

Amazing, that “high school” “gimmick” offense has three players with more rushing yards, and its leading WR is about 10 yards away from the leading WR on a “pro style” offense.

Not only that, why would you want to go to uog if you are a stud WR? Both AJ and Bey Bey are solid WRs, and I’ll admit that AJ is probably a better nfl prospect. But because of uog’s offense, AJ faces double coverage game in and game out. With CPJ’s offense, a defensive coordinator can’t put two guys on one receiver or else they will give up a home run on the ground.

Does uog’s offense throw more? Yes. But if I’m a big time receiver I’d rather have less looks with single coverage than more looks with double coverage. When was the last time AJ wasn’t double teamed in a game? Last year? That happens to Bey Bey every single game.

In sum – different QBs, better RBs, equal top WR stats with arguably less talent. Better WR situations. The question isn’t why would anyone want to go to Tech, the question is why would anyone want to go to uog?

From that point, Attempts/completions are very close with McElroy at 173/103 and Crompton at 177/102…Total yards has McElroy at 1325, Crompton at 1210. Completion ratio has McElroy at 59.5% to Crompton’s 57.6%.

The most glaring stat is INT’s with Crompton throwing 9 and McElroy 3…

While we’re at it, Ingram (MI) has 905 yds on 135 carries with an avg of 6.7 per, 3 TD’s and 0 fumbles.

Hardesty (NC) has 672 yds on 125 carries with an avg of 5.4 per, 6 TD’s and 0 fumbles.

This game should be played mainly on the ground. We’ll see some air game because it’ll be necessary, not because it’s their respective styles. Ingram should break 1000 yds Saturday…

Ramble:
TB finally throws the dice GT’s way, twice in the same article and you’re still griping. Couple points real quick, GT won’t be finishing with just 1 loss, that’s happening… deal with that. Both Bama or UF won’t have more than 1 loss. One of the 2 will likely have a 2nd loss (counting the SEC Championship game) but no more. It would be highly, highly unlikely and Tony said as much to see them rematch, frankly no one cares to see that.

But the first thing I thought when I saw this headline was, “well good, Tone threw a bone GT’s way… ramble, jacket and others will finally be happy.” Oh well, you guys must have a real inferiority complex huh?

It really doesn’t matter who thinks who is better. Win and keep winning and the rest takes care of itself. If Tech wins out we will see how things work out. If we don’t, well, it is what it is. We are winning right now and that is what counts. We need to win on Saturday, in a tough place to play. UVA (no disrespect to Mr. Jefferson)has always play GT tough. This should be a hard fought game with the outcome being determined in the last few minutes of the game. I think we will see the CPJ has our Yellow Jackets ready and our “gimick” offense will do the job.

Geez, you gotta love all the puppy pee over our offense! Reality is hard to argue with though, and the reality is that the pups just can’t stand that we showed them up in their own back yard!

No matter which stadium we play in, yours or ours the University (system) of Georgia owns it and we have more Red & Black in your stadium than you do gold.

Now, what did rankle our feathers was the classless way your players broke pieces of the hedges in Sanford Stadium and paraded around. Your coach should have reacted the way ours did when we stomped on Vandy’s midfield logo. They won the game, fare and square, they should have acted like they’ve done it before…. oh my mistake, those players hadn’t ever done so before.

Tony, I watched your show last night and was wondering a couple of things. How can you do a 1 1/2 hour show going over the mid season report of college football and the first BCS rankings of the year and not spend any time on the ACC or GA Tech. The only mention of GA Tech was at the very end when you were calling out the refs this year and you mentioned some “questionable calls during the GA Tech game”. First of all the ACC has 3 teams in the top 15 of the BCS, doesn’t take a genius to figure our that is 20 percent, but did the ACC get 20 percent of your show……But I know it is CBS, and we all know the love affair that CBS and ESPN has for the SEC…Do you remember the play where Josh Nesbitt stole the fumble back from the FSU player a couple of weeks ago to probably save the game…We were joking yesterday if Tim Tebow did something like that, what ESPN would have done. They would have stopped every other game in the country to show the replay on the big screen at each stadium and then went ahead and presented him with the Heisman trophy. Come on Tony…..there is a pretty good team right under your nose….Mr College Football….

SimpleDawg

All of you numb-nuts who describe the Tech offense as the “spread option” are about as accurate as Miller calling Miller Lite a Pilsner.

Johnson’s offense is a variation of the wishbone with the QB under center. The spread option has the QB in the shotgun.

Option # 1 is the fullback. PJ’s best back has always been the fullback. QB has to be under center to utilize the fullback. PJ always prefers for the FB to carry the ball…quickest, shortest route to the end zone…safest hand off…least amount of players involved…etc.

Option # 2 is the QB. This option opens up after the fullback is established. Defenses collapsing on the FB open up Options 2 & 3.

Option # 3 is the pitch man. Riskiest of the 3 options, but the payoff can be big when defensive players lose their discipline by focusing on options 1 & 2.

PJ alters the old Wishbone with wing backs and flankers to adjust to the increased athleticism of today’s players, but the basic philosophy is the same.

Call it what you want, but it can be very effective when executed properly, and/or against undisciplined defenses….it also helps if you can hit a pass, because you usually have several opportunities to hit open receivers.

As long as everyone is spouting off, Tech has done great this year, and soon they will be into playing that same game as most teams in conferences play. Hoping another team will knock off the team that beat you. I don’t think Clempsun is the team to do that to UM, but they could. Tech needs to just keep thier heads down and thier powder dry. They should be well rested by the time UGA rolls in and should make a big statement that weekend.

Dogs won’t lose this weekend for sure.

I hope BC beats ND after that two extra play stuff last week against USC.

Bama Rolls, LSU Rolls, Tech should roll.

Never thought I’d see the day when Wake Forest getting blown out would be unheard of, and SEC actually doing something to the officials that make pitiful calls. I still think a further investigation is warranted.

Frank—-I stand corrected. At least as measured by the number of sacks allowed, Tennessee’s offensive line stacks up pretty well. A little search of ESPN individual player stats reveals that Crompton has been sacked 6 times so far this year, which ties him for the third fewest sacks in the SEC. Crompton’s TD/INT ratio is 13-9, and if you take away his stats against Western Kentucky and Georgia, it’s an upside-down ratio of 4-6.

You may be right about Tennessee’s offensive line, but the Vols still need a starting quarterback.

If S Fla beats Miami it could help GT. The way the bcs works, if there is a 3 way tie, then the highest ranked team would go if they are ranked 5 points higher than the team they are in contention with. In other words, If GT wins out and is say 5th in the bcs and miami lost to USF and fell to 11th, gt would go to the acc champ game. If Miami was 10th, then I believe they would get the honor. I am not 100% sure of this but I think it is accurate.

LSU should beat Auburn. Auburn has very little depth but in their defense UK maybe very underrated. UK’s losses afterall are to UF, S Car (who only has 1 loss), and Bama. UK is a very hard team to rate at the moment that could win their remaining games, the toughest being UT and UGA which IMO are toss ups.

Auburn will get back on track beating Furman and will most likely get 1 win between Ole Miss or UGA, UGA being the mostlikely. Auburn is due for a win over UGA, both defenses can’t tackle but Malzahn has much more imagination than Bobo. A 7 win season for Chizik in his first year won’t be bad. If they recruit a good class Auburn can be fighting for best of rest in the SECW next year and a return to the Cotton or Chicken Bowl.

I’d like to think that winning in Tallahassee (which had NEVER been done by GT) was a much more daunting task than trying to win at Virginia this weekend. And in the past year and a half, Paul Johnson has made it a habit of ending long droughts at GT. Beating FSU for the first time in ACC play last year. Beating UGA after 7 straight losses last year. Beating FSU in Tallahassee for the first time. Beating a top 5 opponent at home for the first time in 40+ years (VT last weekend). So to me, breaking a 20 year drought in Charlottesville is just the next one to knock down. Plus, GT is going on a mission to revenge the losses they had last year. They avenged the losses to VT and UNC. The only one left (assuming they won’t get to face LSU in a bowl game) is Virginia. I’d say Al Groh is in trouble.

Tide4U2C, I agree Crompton usually makes bad decisions when hurried. Bama has one of the best pass rushes in the SEC. Bama may not blow UT out but the win will most likely never be in doubt. Crompton gets picked off and Ingram has a 100 yard day (I’m thinking 125-150 yards if he is getting carries in the 4th).

Got 12?

October 22nd, 2009

Gen,

I expect a good game early. Like last year, the final score will not be indicative of the competitiveness of the game. Also, there are a couple of factors to consider when viewing the Bama/UT stats you posted:

1. Bama has played three top-25 teams. UT has played one.
2. In light of #1, Bama is 7-0 while UT is 3-3.
3. Team wise, Bama’s offensive stats are better than UT’s.

And no, Mal Moore just issued a statement saying UT fans have to wear their road whites even in the privacy of their homes on Saturday.

Larry, I think you are right…..So here are the options to the ACC Championship for Tech (Both assume GT wins rest of ACC games). Miami and VT win all ACC games and Miami is 5 spots lower than Tech, which probably means a loss to S. FL and Tech wins against Vandy and UGA). Or…Miami has to lose to one of their remaining ACC games. We will hold head-to-head against VT, obviously not against Miami which comes into play if there are just 2 teams tied.

I don’t usually focus on one comment, but “Time” is way off, and needs to open his eyes a bit. The triple option is not a gimmick offense, but a ball control attempt to eat up clock, gather first downs, and keep the defense rested for the 2nd half. How is that a gimmick? That type of philosophy is how Bear Bryant, Vince Dooley and Pat Dye had great success for many years in the SEC. A gimmick offense would be trying to control the clock with 5 recievers and no running game. Coach Johnson just has a variation in the way he goes about it. I enjoyed watching my Eagles compile a 62-10 record during CPJ’s 5 year stay.
Florida will smack the Dawgs around this year like pups…45-10…Next year I feel will be different as UF will come back to the pack a liitle and UGA will have a shot. But not this year…

1. If GT remembers to show up, there’s no reason to believe they can’t beat Virginia. Paul Johnson brings an end to another negative streak.

2. Run, Jonathon, run. The Vol O-line is tough, but with the pressure Alabama brings, Crompton is going to get happy feet and make some mistakes. He’s going to wish his stats look as good as Jevan Snead’s. Hope the UT defense is rested because they’re going to spend a lot of time on the field.

3. I don’t think Clemson can knock off Miami, but stranger things have happened this season. As others have said, the biggest threat left on Miami’s schedule is probably South Florida …but, BCS rankings used in tiebreakers notwithstanding, a loss there doesn’t help Tech in the ACC. It’s too bad Butch Davis’ team didn’t take things to the next level this year, but that’s another story for another day.

4. This game will show how the Irish responds to last week’s disappointment vs USCw. These teams are fairly evenly matched, and I’m tempted to go with the Irish at home, but the jury is still out.

5. This is as good a year as any to beat LSU, what with their struggles on offense. But Auburn’s offense hasn’t shown it’s consistent enough to beat this caliber of defense, especially with the game at LSU. Even though the Gators showed LSU can be beat at night, it’s a stretch to think Auburn can win. But the two games should have something in common — a low scoring affair that won’t be decided until late.

Paul H – No, the difference between the ACC and the SEC is the ACC actually plays some teams that are not cupcakes out of conference. BTW, no one in the ACC has lost to a team ranked as low as Army in the Sagarin ratings. So, enjoy your win over Vandy, the team that managed that.

The SEC has played only 3 OOC games against teams ranked in the top 30 of the Sagarin ratings, versus 9 for the ACC. In fact, the SEC has only played 9 in the top 66 (the number of teams in BCS conferences) and a whopping 15 rated lower than 120.

Tha ACC is 2-1 OOC against AP top 10 teams this year. The SEC is 1-2 OOC against AP top 25 teams. Sure the losses by Duke and Virginia to Richmond and W&M are embarrassing, but the fact is those teams are better than most of the teams in the Sun Belt and CUSA that the SEC feasts on every year.

The point of a “spread offense” is, simply put, to spread the field. Where the QB lines up doesn’t matter because he’s always lined up in the dead center of the formation, directly behind the ball.

What does matter, however, is the distance of skill players from the ball. GT spreads its two WRs out about as far as they can go. GT also spreads out 2 RBs outside of the tackles and opts for no TE. Thus, like all other spread offenses, GT plays with only 5 down linemen and 4 skill players spread outside of those down linemen. In fact, the main difference in PJs spread offense and other pass happy spread offenses is playing RBs instead of WRs and moving the RBs in about 4-5 yards so they can run the ball effectively.

bb,

Last year the SEC play 9 FCS teams, and the ACC played 14. 5 more FCS teams for the ACC? ….and you state “the difference between the ACC and the SEC is the ACC actually plays some teams that are not cupcakes out of conference.”

As of this year the ACC has lost to 2 FCS teams.

The difference between the SEC and the ACC is the SEC expects National titles and to have the top nonBCS bound team from the Big12, Big10 and ACC to play in 3 of their bowls. BTW the SEC lines up SEC #4 against ACC #2 really says something about the state of the ACC compared to the SEC.

hey bb… that’s because there are only 2 teams in the ACC that can actually put a game on, perhaps 3 if you count the surprising Miami team. We have no need for an OOC game to bolster our schedule. You dumb a$$es amaze us with all your stats, you do realize anyone with a 9th grade education can skew numbers and statistics to mean anything they want them to.

How about you compare our entire schedule, you know the one that INCLUDES LSU, Tennessee, Florida, Arkansas, GT. You’d find at the end of the year your strength of schedule is 20 spots behind LSU’s, UF’s (although UF’s is a bit embarrassing early), UGA’s, Bama’s etc. The pundits do that little exercise each year and you guys always fall way behind.

I cannot believe there are still people out there referring to Tech’s offense as “gimmicky”, certainly not UGA fans. I would think Zeier’s infamous “high school offense” comments last year would have put this notion to rest.

Fact is, they ran for over 400 yards against us last year, and through a schedule that includes Clemson, Miami, UNC, and Virginia Tech (all pretty good defenses), I believe they lead the nation in rushing this year at the midpoint.

Let’s just worry about how to stop it versus what to call it, shall we?

I think Tech takes UVA behind the wood shed this weekend. (Apologies to TH Jefferson, but I’ve always called it UVA, and besides, wasn’t UVA built on James Monroe’s land? Seems wrong to just give Jefferson all the credit). I know Nesbitt has been carrying you guys, but I think Dwyer is ready to have a big game against the 3-4. I have been reading that UVA has a daunting D, but it looks to have come against UNC, Indiana, and Maryland…not exactly offensive juggernauts.

I’m looking forward to a relaxing weekend since we are mercifully at a “bye” before heading to J’ville. (Incidentally, I do think we have a shot in that game….IF our defense can be solid…big IF, I know.)

Just to show that Yellow Jackets sometimes make stupid points too, no team in the SEC this year has lost to a FCS school. I think we’ve lost twice (William and Mary and maybe Maryland?). I also have to commend uog for trying to play a tough OOC schedule (although I think at the time they booked them Ariz St was tough and OK St was a cupcake).

FWIW, though, you puppies also have to give Tech credit for scheduling tough games including Auburn a few years ago, Notre Dame, Miss St, Vandy, Ole Miss (even though they tried to back out), Bama (I think starting 2011), Kansas (2010).

I was at the UT v Bama game in 90 when UT was in the top 10 and averaged over 40 points a game. Bama was 3-3 and mediocre at best. UT ended up losing that game 9-6 on a Cornelius Bennett blocked FG which went 40 yards the opposite direction and Bama kicked the FG as time ran out. Not saying it will happen, but you have to hold out hope. Bama by 17. Go Vols!

bb: just for giggles I just went and googled “ncaa strength of schedule to date” and took the top 5 teams from the ACC and the top 5 teams from the SEC (had to go up to about #40 AP rank to get 5 from each) and averaged their strength of schedules to date.

RESULT:
top 5 teams cumulative strength of schedule through this past weekend:
SEC= 12.8 SOS
ACC= 25.6 SOS

even with the cupcakes up front (which UGA didn’t get btw) now that conference play has begun for both, your SOS is dying on the vine while ours is skyrocketing…

Rule of thumb:
Don’t argue numbers unless you’ve looked at all of them, someone smarter than you (IE: ME) can always poke holes in shabby numbers. The SEC teams that have lost OOC games are all reeling at the moment and yes, that includes UGA.

Time, Easy for you to run your mouth this week about how the pups will beat Tech and that Tech is a gimmicky offense. We’ll see how that works out the weekend after Thanksgiving.

Also, your contention that Coach Johnson won’t be able to recruit well doesn’t make sense. Tech’s offense has a WR, QB and RB that are among the statistical leaders in their conference and in the nation. Not every recruit will want to play in Coach Johnson’s system, but plenty of talented skill players will be interested in an offense that is averaging over 32 points per game and over 420 yards per game

Strength of schedule rankings (keep in mind this includes only games that have been played, not all games)

#1 Florida
#2 Texas
#3 Alabama
#4 Virginia Tech
#7 Miami
#9 LSU
#16 Georgia Tech
#61 Georgia

It’s a little unfair because Georgia’s schedule from here on out is much harder than it has been including UF and GT. Tech’s toughest game in the second half is against #45 uog. By the end of the year, uog will have a tougher schedule than tech

Now: GT avg opponent is #54, uog avg opponent is 60
End of year: GT avg opponent is 65, uog avg opponent is 62.

Bama should handle the Vols, I don’t think Clemson can beat the Hurricanes, I hope they do, but I just don’t think it will happen.

The curse will be broken by the CPJ led Yellow Jackets this weekend.

MSU had 4, that’s FOUR, turnovers to LSU’s ZERO. Miss st had first and goal and couldn’t punch it in. GT ran all over MSU and beat them by 11 at their place. So enough with the our teams are so much better bs. LSU could barely beat MSU. And I am most certainly taking MSU this weekend and the points the gators are getting. If the officials call the game fairly, Fla doesn’t win by more than 2 tds.

1. Time is RogerDawg’s new disguise since he has made a season of so many idiotic comments that even most UGA fans are ready to vomit after having to endure his excuse for logic. He has carefully tried to disguise this by entering comments with both monikers, but if you read carefully, it’s that same drivel.

2. At the beginning of the season, I absolutely feared the Virginia game – especially coming after the Hokies. I actually feel pretty good about Saturday as Johnson has shown true talent at keeping the players responsible.

3. I think Tech will win out, but remain concerned about a let down on the road (Duke can throw the ball and our pash rush/defense is not where it needs to be). You simply cannot count out Georgia, either. It is a rivalry game and you can throw out the records; emotion can carry the day. However, Joe Cox, Willie Martinez, and Paul Johnson make me feel better about the Yellojackets chances.

4. Alabama’s offensive line and the inability of their new quarterback to throw against better defenses will catch up to them at some point in the season. Will it be Tennessee – a rivalry game of emotion? Ingram’s running makes the line look better than it is. That said, everyone, including Flordia has warts.

5. Tech and Miammi will probabaly win out. If Miammi loses to South Florida and Tech runs the table, it all comes down to the BCS standings to determine the division winner. If Georgia Tech is ranked highest, but Miami is ranked within five AND ahead of a 2 loss Virginia Tech team, Miami goes based on head to head with GT. If Miami is more than five spots down or behind as a result of the loss to So. Florida, GT would go.

6. I’ve called Johnson’s offense the flex bone – only because you get an X in the name – it doesn’t matter what youcall it but both the Georgia and Tech guys have accurately described key elements and I’m not sure they aren’t talking past one another on it due to semantics – which don’t matter. One of the key features to it’s success that is rarely mentioned by any one is the crackback chop and cut blocks. As a defender, you must no only hold your assignment, but you must fend off a chop or cut block quickly, often coming from the side when your focus is following the ball. Nesbitt’s last touchdown against VT was a prime example. The safety was in perfect position to make the play, but was cut off his feet from the side opening up a hole I could get five yards through.

Hal you really have no thinking capability. I never said you look how many points one team scores and assume that another team will do the same. We played MSU the week after LSu did. Some teams get better. Some worse. But you can’t deny that MSU lost by only 4 in a game they should have won. Bama is the only team that has shown anything this year as far as scary good. Fla is not dominant. The sec is now a bunch of average teams and bama. The acc with gt, vt and miami are just as good as the sec’s top 3. Keep drinking the sec kramer kool aid. Last year you were tops. This year it’s a toss up.

Are you stupid or something? We played ND when they were the #2 team in the Country with Quinn. Winning at Starkville is never easy, especially with their new offense. AND Kansas is 5-1 and BCS ranked.

Otto = not a genius.

Got 12 (NOT ME) said – “The Chick-Fil-A Bowl is SEC # 5 v. ACC # 2. In spite of this uneven pairing, the SEC is 13-8 against the ACC.”

While that is true THIS YEAR, that hasn’t been true for all of the matchups. For example, I know it was #3 in the ACC two years ago (after the Gator Bowl), and I believe it was #4 in the SEC a few years ago too. Got 12 – also not a genius.

U-No said “My reference was concerning the “sacredness” of the precious hedges referred to in a earlier post. As Ramble On observed they are bushes for crying out loud! They grow back!”

Actually they are weeds, not bushes. Look it up. Only a team like georgia would surround the field with weeds.

Hal – are you recognizing that the LSU/GT matchup wouldn’t have been 33-3 if they played again? Cause while you emphasize the “shredding,” the only shredding occurred on the scoreboard, not the game. Not saying they didn’t beat us soundly, but we certainly helped them (dropped ball in the end zone first series, muffed punt return, LSU successful onside, going for it on fourth and short from our own 25, etc.).

Anyone who purports to know the outcome of a game before it is played is a fool. Every week we see upsets throughout the NCAA, regardless of ranking, conference affiliation, school records, or history. Some teams win while only completing a single pass (GT last week), while others win without gaining a single yard on the ground. That’s the reason they play the games, because none of us is “smart” enough to know the outcome in advance.

Consequently, when someone like “RAMBLE ON” says that the UVA game will be Tech’s last challenge for the year, it makes me cringe. While it’s true that the rest of Tech’s games are win-able, it’s equally true that they are LOSE-able. We have to show up every week prepared to play, both mentally and physically. I think our coaching staff … the one that employs the high school offense … has done a pretty good job of that over the last 20 games or so. I hope they can continue it through the rest of this season as well.

DogTard No doubt ND was overrated in ‘06 playing an over rated Big10 schedule. They were blown out by USC and LSU. ND beat GT anyways in ‘06. GT beat a 3-8 ND team in ‘07…..big deal

Miss. St. only won 2 conf games last year and has only beaten Vandy in conf. this year.

The SEC has played a lower selection against the ACC in the Peach (Chicken) Bowl somewhere between 4 and 6 and don’t forget the SEC puts their top 2 in BCS bowls where the ACC does not get a 2nd invite.

The contract was the Capital One and Cotton rotate between SEC #2 and the Peach gets SEC #4. Yes contracts get all muddled up with options, BCS deals, SECE vs SECW, where the fans will likely travel etc but that is the general idea. The Peach was pushing to move higher up that chain.

1) Tech-UVA- Interesting stat regarding wahoo’s dominance at home over the jackets. I’m hoping and thinking the jackets get it done in a very close one. Its tough to go on the road again though after a big, emotional win over VT. Letdowns get ya every time.

2) Bama-Should be a classic, physical game since both teams play a smash mouth type of run oriented offense. I’m a little worried about over confidence that I see in my brethren as if we’ve already won the game before even playing it. I’ve caught myself getting overconfident at times so here is a reminder

Proverbs 16:18

Pride goes before destruction, And a haughty spirit before stumbling.

haughty: disdainfully proud; snobbish; scornfully arrogant; supercilious:

3) Clemson-Miami- I’m pulling for Clemson since I would like to see the jackets win the ACC but while my heart says Clemson my brain says Miami.

4) Love watching ND lose and I’m hoping so because there is no way even a 2 loss ND team should hope to be in a BCS game. Wayyyy to easy a schedule. BC gets it done because ND is coming off a huge emotional letdown against USC and because BC is confident having whupped the Irish several in a row.

5) Auburn-LSU- Seems someone figured out how to slow down Auburn’s offense and beat em. LSU just has too much depth and too many athletes for a rebuilding Auburn playing with 10 players under the scholarship limit. It still will be fairly close though. Auburn has still exceeded expectations and will probably still go 7-5 and go bowling.

Eric,

Get over the wishful thinking on forfeiting a game over a small piece of tape. I’ve seen numerous kickers through a piece of grass, mud, etc. and when Saban reviewed the film of other teams he noticed at least half the other sec teams were doing the same thing and S. Carolina even did it last year.

Its a minor thing and you can’t forfeit a game because of a missed penalty call. If that were the case we would all be forever arguing over every perceived missed holding call, missed pass interference call, etc. It would be never ending.

Auburn is still having a good season despite losing a couple in a row and they should end up going bowling and their recruiting should pick up significantly. Be happy about that and forget about tapegate.

All smack talk and rivalry trash talk aside, Flowery Branch Yellow Jacket is right. We could lose at UVA this weekend just as easily as win. Based upon the trend that has developed this year, I would say we have a very good chance to break the spell that the Cavaliers have held over us the past few years. CPJ knows how to crawl through the ear-hole in a players helment and get his attention, and the players have responded in a positive way.

I find it very funny that UGA thinks they are gonna cakewalk into atlanta this year… oh is that because you beat Vandy? I mean they did only lose to the unstoppable force of ARMY by three points…

All this talk about how GT can’t get good recruits is just plain retarded. First off, why the HELL wouldn’t a good RB want to come to a top ranked school that currently ranks no. 2 in the nation rushing… 3 of the 10 ACC rushing leaders are GT players. No other ACC school has more than 1 player on that list. I’ve gotta think that these great HS players are seeing the same thing that Anthony Allen saw when he decided to transfer to Tech – an awesome future!!! Now regarding WR’s, we won’t get as many big time recruits as other schools, but that’s because we don’t need and thus recruit as many. We only need a handful of solid recievers to thrive… but there’s still a huge attraction to GT’s offense for WR’s too. Any smart, talented, and patient WR can see the potential of playing in the offense that has made Bey Bey Thomas the leading reciever in the ACC. And PJ is still getting talented, physical recievers like Stephen Hill who will step up in the coming years. We are also going to be attractive to a QB who is tough, fast, and can throw. The benefits of GT’s offense for a running QB are obvious. But, the Miss. St. game showed that if a QB can also throw he’ll get the opportunity to put up some gawdy passing stats too. This is a win-win situation which has already attracted some big recruits like 4 star Jordan Luallen.

I think that the idea that PJ can’t get recruits is just wishful thinking by those who are afraid of how good GT’s future is looking under CPJ.

That being said, I’m looking forward to this Saturday where hopefully another streak will be broken during this awesome season. PJ’s offensive juggernaut will continue to roll against UVA while the defense finally get’s comfortable with what they are asked to do. It will be a good game for a quarter or two against a pretty good Virginia team, but look for GT to wear them down and pull away. GT 38 UVA 14

And hopefully Clemson can use their speed and talent to pull off a shootout win against Miami…

The difference this time is Coach PJ, as he has said, keep the game close in the 4th quarter we’ll find a way to win. I definitely believe that is something to be said for that. Having seen both O’Leary and Gailey and now PJ, there is no complacency, No give.. since we’re on a normal schedule, hopefully we’re prepared and rested. PJ is the polar opposite of say Richt, in that he will do what needs to be done, no matter who his friends are or not.

Ok, so let me get this straight. We have 2 RBs with more yards in our “gimmick” offense and you admit that a top WR gets twice as many yards in this “gimmick” offense than a top WR in a “pro-style” offense.

Why would a WR go to uog when they can have twice as many yards in our “gimmick” offense?

Stacy Harrison (aka “Dirty Harry” on campus) blocked the field goal attempt. It was my freshman year at Bama and Stallings’ first year as well. I don’t really remember that game but I remember starting 0-3. We lost the first game of the year against S. Miss and Brett Favre. I still don’t like Favre. We only lost two more games that year–Penn St for homecoming and Louisville in the Fiesta Bowl.

Dogtard, Yes the quote was originally by BeBe but you seemed to imply that you agreed.

BGS, I was only replying to other fans who state that the ACC played tougher games than the SEC. UGA is down this year I don’t think many will deny it. Actually a good friend is in OKC and I followed Big 12 football to compete with him in College Pick’em. Kansas had one 12-1 year and another 8-5. Most of the Big 12 North is in the dumps thus all the coaching changes over the past few years.

Hey Dogtards

October 22nd, 2009
2:26 pm

Otto – how is this implying that I agree? I countered the Vandy lost to Army point with the point that the ACC lost two games to FCS schools.

Someone else said – “BTW, no one in the ACC has lost to a team ranked as low as Army in the Sagarin ratings. So, enjoy your win over Vandy, the team that managed that.”

I replied – Just to show that Yellow Jackets sometimes make stupid points too, no team in the SEC this year has lost to a FCS school. I think we’ve lost twice (William and Mary and maybe Maryland?).

Time,

Leave the drama and sensationalism to the sportswriters dude. Tech may not win out but they will beat georgia. YOU can “bank” on that. You can even bet the trailer on it!

True, Tech is not as talented as many of the teams they play (IE georgia, and VT) but they do not need the 5 start recruits like they do in order to compete. Just solid 3-4 star athletes and students. Johnson’s “gimmick” offense and defensive systems are superior to anything the traditional powerhouses have seen and tried to prepare for. He will continue to compete and attract high school players that want to win now and play at the next level later (and get a first class (not 2nd) education). Granted he won’t attack the Matt Stratfords etc., (pro style quarterbacks), but take another drink of Koolaid if you don’t think he will get the top Dual QB types in for visits. LOL. I know that your world has been rocked this season and that the thought of losing to Tech again costs you sleep at night, but face it, you have once again been out smarted by a Tech man (Paul Johnson). Learn your new role, like it and STFU when addressing the Tech Nation on future posts.

Also, you can spin it any way you want, but Florida hates you every bit as bad as we do and they will not let up on your fugly azzez until they are up by 30-40 points (like last year’s 49-3 BEATDOWN-I was there).

Yes you pointed out that it was a dumb but you seemed to confirm that Vandy wasn’t a tough game by pointing out that the ACC had lost to some FCS teams. Going down the same direction, maybe I took it the wrong way. Apologies since it looks that I have.

I do agree with your Miller Lite Pilsner post but most would not understand that comparison as well. I’ll also go to say that those calling GT a gimmick offense really don’t keep up with college ball. If GT is a gimmick so is UF for running something out of the norm and look at how they have done. If you really look at gimmicks look at how Les Miles has called also sorts of fake kicks to win a game. It is only a gimmick if it does not work. Further the HS offense crowd, very few if any are running PJ’s option in HS because the blocking schemes used are not legal. If you want a HS offense go looking at the teams that run a variation of the spread far more run it than CPJ’s version of the option.

Hey Dogtards – I see where you were going with that. Good point, both conferences lose games they would like to have back. The OOC schedules are looking better for both schools. I like the games with the big conference schools. OSU was overrated when we played them but so were we. The exposure is what is so important. It gets the teams in front of new audiences. I always liked that GT scheduled ND, etc. Was glad to see UGA finally get some better OOC opponents.

I hate to say it but GT beats UGA this year, our D couldn’t hold me under 75 yards and I’m 40.

Delbert D.

October 22nd, 2009

Spread option? Wishbone? Veer? Belly series? Yes, they are triple options. But CPJ’s is different.

1) No tight ends like the other three USUALLY have.
2) Wider line splits.
3) The B back is not a fullback. He’s deeper than the FB in the wishbone, and the veer doesn’t have either of those. The B back can follow leads that are not available in the ‘bone, due to the closenesss of the wishbone fullback to the line of scrimmage.
4) A backs are lined up as wingbacks, not as “tailbacks” split behind the QB as in the veer and wishbone. Navy’s current variant of the spread option has the A backs angled at 30 degrees outward.
5) The A backs get to their blocking assignments quicker than veer or wishbone backs.
6) The belly series is a straight-T formation triple option. Tech, Auburn and others ran it in the late 50s early 60s and many high school teams did (including mine)
7) The I formation with TB, FB and WB/Flanker can run the option, similar to the belly series. (Nebraska for one famous example)

The other “spread option” (Florida) is a different offense, with the QB and RB deep, side by side. It uses 1 or 2 tight ends and multiple WRs.

I will give you iowa st as being a dud and pelini has been at neb for 2 years. But I would hardly say they have high coach turnover and the North has been down.

I could care less what you call GT’s offense, and I could care less beyond description on any of the put-downs that come from jealous puppies who want to make fun of it. CPJ has been winning with it for a long time. Georgia Southern, Navy and now at Georgia Tech. I would rather win with a so-called gimick or high school offense than to get beat every weekend with some other kind of attack. Until the teams that play against us can consistently find a way to defeat it, I am all for it.

It does demand that the team stay focused, limit turnovers, and exercise patience, which Tech has proven it can do. It demands the defense who plays against it to stay disciplined and stay on their assignments the entire 60 minutes. UGA failed to do that last year, and will fail to do it this year.

CPJ knows how to climb through the ear-holes if his players and keep them on track. CMR has yet to demonstrate he know how to do anything but keep from falling asleep on the sidelines. The puppies don’t fear their coach, GT does. It makes a big difference on the field as we all have observed.

His loyalty to CWM and others undoubtedly has caused this to fester to the point its at now. But remember, we used to kill Tommy Tuberville when he changed coordinators like he did underwear. Mark chose to be loyal, develop loyalty in return and try to let a guy work his way out of the mess. He didn’t and he’ll be gone at the end of this year, count on that.

This year they lost in their only relatively tough game Colorado. Nebraska is getting better. Mizzou may still be king of the North but Mizzou is 2-6 against the South the past 2 years. Even my OU and Texas friends would like to see the Big12 North improve. K State, Colorado, Iowa State, and Nebraska have all made coaching changes over the past few years. Kansas and Mizzou have been the stable programs. Also the Big 12 is fun to keep up with because of the coaches, Gundy, Hawkins, Mangino, Leach, and Stoops all have their quotes.

Don’t believe everything you see on these blogs folks. I’m actually a teenager with big dreams and little, well, you-know-what. Some of you clowns think that I make a lot of money and drive an RV, etc. The truth is I am not a business man (c’mon who would spend the time I do on blogs instead of running their business?) but I can pretend to be one on an anonymous blog. The fact that you respond to my statements is the only thing that matters to me. You see, I’m just a kid that has nothing to do and needs a little entertainment. Now that we have that out of the way you can understand the rest of my posts!

YellowFuzz now that you’ve gone silent… you must have known where I was going, 59-36 is GT’s all time losing record against UGA. I’m going to look in a second, but I’m not even sure you’ve ever won a decade.

GT has a 37% winning percentage against UGA… you guys just need to admit what you are and move on.

Hal, I knew your were blowing smoke when you made the comment about needing a write off so Bush wouldn’t put his hands in your coffers. Bush LOWERED taxes. Just wait and see what Prez O does to all our tax burden, and now he is going to start cutting your salary so that you won’t even have a tree to hang your figs on. Geez! But, even with all that, the puppies are going to get their curly tailed butts whipped next week in Jacksonville and then again in November in the Yellow Jacket nest on North Ave.

Delbert of course it is, you wrote it. U-No, Never said Bush did anything with taxes, just that the 18% per year write off was needed in 2007…. cognition is a bytch isn’t it?

You’re probably right that UF is gonna whip us, you think you’d fair any better? Not very likely. Listen, it isn’t news that UGA isn’t what it’s been the last 6 or 7 years, you’re all beating a dead horse. But you’re also showing you jealousy and/or ignorance by denying what we have accomplished in that time. And by acting as though beating us somehow crowned you all team of the decade.

Speaking of decades, I did look and GT has won 2 decades, the 1900’s and the 1950’s… outside those 2, we own the jackets. Y’all are just renting BD stadium from us boys…

LOL! As I sstated earlier, I have been attending the games since 1960, maybe even a year or two earlier, as my dad graduated from Tech as well and took me to all the games from when I was age 4. I have no jealousy, envy, or any other disfunctional emotions concerning UGA, their record against us for however long you care to go back in time. I live for the moment and look forward to the future. The past is just that, past. Except to say that last year was sweet! Throw all those facts and figures around all you want to, I am secure enough in my own being and in Tech’s current situation to say that right now, I like what I see going on at the Yellow Jacket nest at North Avenue and nothing or no one can mess that up for me. I will not be sad if the puppies beat the Gators next week, in fact, I don’t care much for them either. I certainly will not grab a tissue and wipe any tears if the Gators bite the hide off y’all’s hairy butts. All this BS is part of the fun of the Tech/UGA rivalry and it has gone on for years. You ought to be at our family gathering at Thanksgiving, The family is pretty evenly spit betweeen Techies and Puppies! It gets really rich as the day progresses!

actually GT Steve, JC’s not the problem. Funny story, during a game on ESPN (USF/CINCY) which was last Thursday, they showed Heisman lock Colt McCoy’s stats… he had 70 yds more passing, same # TD’s and 2 less int’s than JC. When 2 of JC’s 8 ints came on prayers at the end of games. Joe’s playing fine when he gets a little protection and by god a running game. Running and defense are our issues at the moment, not Joe. Yeah he could still ring up 300 yds on GT… I wouldn’t guess 400, but 300? Sure…

If GT is so insignificant and beneath UGA football, why are you on this message board?

….and if you’ve got so much cash, why aren’t you using it to lobby to make some changes up in Athens?

We are 6-1 (coming off a win over the #4 team in the country) and sure there are things we need to improve upon, but UGA has SO much more ground to make up.

Worry about your division rival who ostensibly has determined the success (or lack thereof) of your program since 1990. At this point in the season, your being on our blog is just a sign of your insecurity of things to come with your program in the future.

I wouldn’t know, I haven’t watched, I just assume UGA will start preparing more for next year at some time over the next few games. But good for Joe if he is having good stats, you know how ESPN and CBS are, they lock onto 2 or 3 people all year and never change.

U-No… I could imagine. Mine isn’t divided, we all graduated from UGA but I have several friends on either side and enjoy the repartee’. However, don’t think for a second that when the fun turns into stupid statements that have no validity that the dude won’t get challenged. You can talk smack while being realistic about stats, mascots, fan bases etc. I’ve never said your fans are all red necks, or 4 eyed geeks, never BS’s your record up or down, or trashed your stadium or traditions. It’s a fact that we buy more GT tickets on some years the GT fans do. Its a fact that the history shows that even when you rise as you are right now, we generally rise right back. 100 years of history shows the same trends, GT backers have been saying they’d turn your way for 70 years… never have yet. Don’t think they will either. You guys beat an avg UGA team last year that was already showing signs of un-raveling down the stretch by 3 points… congratulations! But for gods sake no crown came with it. This year will stand on its own soon enough, don’t wish it hear too soon. Remember when we watch that game, it’ll be over for another year for all intents and purposes.

Johnny, not on your blog… picked this argument up on our page too. Also never said GT was insignificant… actually said several times on here that they are very good. And I think this yrs game will be a great one. I’m jsut counter pointing a bunch of idiots throughout the day who’ve said UGA is in one way or another (various statements from various folks) in a long decline, one said Mark Richt hasn’t accomplished anything, some have stated the Tech owns UGA, always had.

Those are what I’ve been arguing with all day. You’re a good program looks like with an apathetic fan base unfortunately. In a city like Atlanta when a team can’t sell out a 55k seat stadium for the #4 teams game it kind of says something about the program and or the fan base. But I can not take reading these mindless posts by fans who probably couldn’t even name your last 3 coaches acting like Tech somehow leaped into the pantheon of college football simply by beating us last year by 3 points. Unfortunately the convo spiraled out of control at some point.

Agreed that no crown came with that win, but you cannot argue that a team who was preseason ranked #1 that touted the 2009 NFL OVERALL #1 draft pick under center and the #12 overall draft pick 5-7 yards behind him was average. That seems like ‘excuse-making’. GT fans shouldn’t crown themselves over the win but at the same time UGA fans shouldn’t down play the win either.

johnny lets point something out that usually gets youalls blood boiling, then I hear things like “excuses excuses” In Marks previous 7 season, UGA had experienced IN TOTAL 15 season ending injuries. In 2008, we had 18… in 1 year. yeah we were EXTREMELY disappointed but we also realize what happened and that Mark may have done his best coaching job ever at UGA. The o-line had a different starting set in EVERY game do to this. The names, Stafford, Moreno, etc made it… but none of their help made it to the end of the year.

As a general rule, I don’t throw stats around and stuff like that. Maybe on a same year comparison it is interesting to throw some stats out, but long standing history, won-loss records going back to Adam and Eve, and stuff like that are realitively meaningless to current events. I enjoy the rivarly banter, stay away from trashing family heritage, and try to play off other’s silly comments in a humorous manner. When it turns ugly I usually bail, I have no time for gutter stuff. It is what Furman Bisher called it a long time ago, Clean Old Fashion Hate.

There are certainly some idiot GT fans and for their behavior ‘us’ decent GT fans apologize.

As I’m sure you are aware, when your own AD says that ‘you can’t consistently win at a place like GT because of the rigorous academic requirements’ (and I’m paraphrasing), then Ofcourse your program is going to suffer and that sort of GUTLESS, SPINELESS, APATHY permeates every aspect of your program including fan base support/growth. Our new AD has a completely different attitude. He, like CPJ, is a winner. I assure you that by the end of 2010, every BD game (save for maybe Duke and our Div 1-AA games) will be a sell out.

One more comment: Let’s face it. When you go to UGA you are a Bulldog for life. When you got to Tech you are a Yellow Jacket for life. The hatred never ends and most enjoy seeing the other school’s team lose almost as much as they enjoy seeing their own team win.

With that in mind Tech grad Marc Curles should never be allowed to ref another Georgia football game. And do not forget that that Tech grad SEC Director of Officiating Rogers Redding is the one who assigns him to the Georgia games.

And let’s not forget how hard the SEC crews have been on Georgia for the past few years. Some say it is for the Georgia celebration two years ago but this has been going on for longer than 2 years. Georgia is one of the most penalized teams in the country and we have been willing to chalk it up to not enough discipline. The AJC has almost made a artical series our of that.

But perhaps Rogers Redding is not the fair minded head of SEC officiating that the SEC paints him out to be, Perhaps that Tech hatred for Georgia still burns deeply in his soul and his spoken or unspoken direction to his ref teams is throw the flag at Georgia if they even look like we can penalize them.

Don’t forget the Jaspe rSanks non-fumble that led to a Tech win and the suspension of the SEC refs from working the SEC CG about ten years ago. I ref’ed little league and the first thing they taught me was you can’t call what you can’t see and the ref’s admitted that none of them saw him fumble because he didn’t. The ball was ripped out after he was down and all the refs saw was a bunch of Tech players jumping up and down claiming there was a fumble on their home field so the refs called one.

I guess if Tech cannot compete on the field (until this year) then having Redding Rogers in the SEC home office over the refs is the next best thing. Perhaps Grant Field should be changed to Redding Rogers Field because he sure does more for Tech than whoever Grant was.

Redding Rogers needs to go and Marc Curles needs to be fired if the SEC is to maintain any integrity. Otherwise if the team Redding wants to win has the lock then why tune in? The only reason I can think of is to see which team Redding has picked to win.

Is anybody getting their pockets lined from all this? I don’t think so. I think the SEC is just Redding’s little toy and he has his refs call the shots for the teams he wants to win. What a jerk.

Thats gettin it done right there. Ha
Oh yea, the state of Georgia’s #1 HS WR in 2008 was Stephen Hill. He went to Tech.
Welcome back to reality. UGA is an average program that had an above average decade. Fact is Kiffin’s gettin UT back to where it was 10 years ago and CPJ doing the same at Tech. Where were they at 10 years ago? Beating UGA.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Joe Cox?? 7:33PM post:

Dude, here goes another techie acting as though GT was some super program and UGA’s dominance of Tech just started. Yeah 10 years ago, GT beat UGA 3 times, 2 of those 3 games got officials suspended the following season. Even still that’s 3 wins. Since 1980 Tech is 7-21 against UGA.

That’s not to say that the program isn’t looking good at the moment, it is. PJ is a very solid coach and if he stays he’ll always have a good program. But just as I said to GTSteve, 1 win last year by 3 points didn’t come with any crown nor obviously any post season hardware. Hell you didn’t even finish ranked higher than us. Your post shows complete ignorance and jealousy. If you’re a real Tech fan, lifelong fan, you should enjoy the moment because god only knows it won’t last forever (unless you’re florida apparently).

Now, to your post… Matt to Joe v/s those other names on that list isn’t all that uncommon. First of all, Chris leak was an average recruit, Vince Young was above average but turned into a beast toward the end. Bottom line is Matt Stafford while still in high school, Mel Kiper and Todd McShay both said he would be the #1 pick in the draft when he went. No kid wants to come in behind that kind of prospect, a dearth is to be expected. UF is lucky lucky lucky Tebow stayed, the Brantly kid would not have been ready to step in full time this year, no way.

The key in analyzing this long streak of VA’s over GT is who the coaches were during that stretch.

On paper, there is not one single team left on their schedule to stop them from winning out. The UGA game will be tough in name only because of the rivalry hatred. But on the field there is no comparison. UGA is pitifully weak this year and this will be a country butt whipping by GT and by halftime that game will be over.

GT is going to beat the stuffing out of VA. The score is going to be something like a 3 TD win.
