The baseball team heads to Chattanooga tonight to take on Tennessee, assuming the weather improves. If you’ve never been to a game at the new ballpark there, it’s a beautiful place. And downtown Chattanooga is a fun place to hang out. Of course, the weather there is supposed to be as bad as it is here.
The game against the Vols is followed by this weekend’s important series against Florida State. The Seminoles are on top of the Atlantis Division (34-12, 18-7), and Tech is in second in the Coastal (31-11-1, 14-7-1).
Both teams are battling to for seeds in the pending conference tourney, as well as the right to host one of the regionals.
The Jackets and Georgia play on Tuesday at Turner Field, and then Tech goes back into the ACC with a regular season-ending series in Durham against Duke.
I brought this back to see if will generate any more discussion: 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.
