Four words you’d probably thought you’d never see in the same sentence.
The women’s basketball team is in Tunisia this week playing that country’s Under-20 national team. Assistant SID Dan Goldberger is filing updates from there on Tech’s website. Here’s the link: http://ramblinwreck.cstv.com/sports/w-baskbl/mtt/09-tour.html
They head to Paris soon.
Golf coach Bruce Heppler signed a five-year deal that will expire in 2015. The team recently won its third ACC title in the past four years, and has won six in Heppler’s 14 years in Atlanta.
Looking ahead to football, I was just perusing the ACC’s composite schedule and highlighting what I think will be the best games each week.
Post yours, and critique mine.
Alabama at Va. Tech, Ga. Dome. Remember what the Tide did here last year against Clemson?
Clemson at Ga. Tech. Witness the power of a fully operational spread-based option offense (assuming everyone’s healthy).
Sept. 17 and 19
Ga. Tech at Miami. Big test for both teams early in the season.
Nebraska at Va. Tech. Big Red vs. Big Maroon. A VT win could open some eyes around the nation in the beauty pageant that is the polls.
UNC at Ga. Tech. Another in a tough three-game stretch for the Jackets.
Oklahoma at Miami. This has the potential to get really ugly for the Canes.
Ga. Tech at FSU. Paul Johnson must have done something to make the schedule-maker mad. (Just kidding, these things are done years in advance, for the most part).
Virginia Tech at Ga. Tech. Read Oct. 10 entry.
Boston College at Notre Dame. I’m sure the nation wouldn’t mind seeing the Eagles win.
UNC at Virginia Tech. If the Hokies are still unbeaten, you’ll be able to hear the noise in Atlanta from Blacksburg and this Thursday night affair.
FSU at Clemson. Dabo meet BoBo.
FSU at Wake. The Deacons bring out the worst in the ‘Noles.
Good weekend to rake leaves.
Rivalry week. Too many good games to go into here. We’ll save that for another blog entry.
