* Game available on ESPN or ESPN2  reverse mirror in many areas outside of ABC Regional telecast.

 

We’ve discussed how tough Tech’s schedule is, and will do so again. But which of these games will you plan on making must-see TV and why? 

Alabama-Virginia Tech should be better than last year’s blowout in the dome. TCU-Virginia could provide a good glimpse of whether Groh has any chance of keeping his job after this season.

 

In other news,

Gani Lawal’s father says his son has not made up his mind about the NBA. I’ve been trying to reach Gani by phone but haven’t been successful. I hope to reach him soon.

Jerome Miller will lead several track and field athletes to the NCAA next week. Miller has a chance win a national title in the high jump. Look for more on him next week. He’s a very interesting dude.

If you could please stop by my seat (Section 121 Row 6 Seat 9) during the Tech/UGA game (that is if you’re even going) I’d really appreciate getting a chance to punch you in the face.

Thanks!

No, that is not okay with me. I’d prefer not to get punched in the face if I can avoid it. So you’ll just have to do one of two things: 1) Don’t read my posts; or 2) Read my posts and continue to cry like a little girl over it. The choice is yours.

When you can get Rambler to stop being the first comment on the UGA blogs, we will keep our noses out of here. Of course, I know he is an embarrassment, even to the Tech people.

Jacksonville State or Oklahoma state? Don’t ever mention schedule strength again……………………….

Yada Yada, did it ever occur that Ramblin is a dawggie posing as a Tech fan. Stoking the flames of ignorance.

The only thing Tech fans will be ‘whine(ing)’ about this year is that Okie State, LSU and Florida are going to wear UGA’s @$$ out before GT gets a shot at it. It is going to be much less fun to see a wore out bunch of dawgies get kicked around.

It’s not who we beat the first game of the regular season….it’s the team we beat the last game of the regular season. THWG.

Some pretty interesting intersectional games – I’m interested to see in The Fridge can duplicate that shocker out west – ask the Vowels how tough it can be to make that trip. Of course, the Dawgs took to the desert pretty well last year – hope they like the Okie cornfilds just as well. Besides UGA, who else do the bugs play out of conference this year?

Huh?

June 4th, 2009

“It’s not who we beat the first game of the regular season….it’s the team we beat the last game of the regular season.”

I disagree. You don’t usually beat anyone in the last game of the regular season.

We have the SEC powerhouses of Miss St and Vandy, along with Jax St. But in all seriousness, what makes our schedule tough this year is the fact that we don’t have an off week until the week before the UGA game. Couple that with some tough back to back conference match ups like Clemson (ACC Rival), Miami, UNC (definitely on the rise under Butch Davis) and FSU, VT, it makes for a pretty tough schedule. I’m sure some UGA fans are going to show their ignorance when it comes to college football and chime in on how the SEC is so tough compared to the ACC, so go ahead and prove me wrong.

Hope ESPN360 is not that herky/jerky delayed style of last year…hard to watch that up here in the high country.

Hey duh?…CPJ wins the last regular season game with regularity. You still disagree?

Kudos to the Dawgs. They actually open up outside of the state for the first time I can remember against a real opponent. Usually it’s New Mexico St. or Northwestern Alabama Tech so they can get all of the Reverend’s harsh punishments out of the way. I’m sure Vince the Prince wasn’t thinking Okie State would be this good when he scheduled them. UGag fans already building in the excuses when Joe “sucks” Cox hits his JT3 stride amd they get blown out in Stillwater. Can’t wait.
I look forward to Bama and VT. Should be a low-scoring game, and VT’s special teams may decide it. NC State should have a chance to show if their final push last year was the real deal. Maryland could blow out Cal or get blown out. Neither would surprise me. Wake had better come ready to play against Baylor, that Sophomore QB is a player.

“Alabama-Virginia Tech should be better than last year’s blowout in the dome”

Yeah, maybe even better than the (even worse) blowout in the bowl game in the dome. What a stupid comment.

Well we used to open up with Notre Dame and Auburn but they won’t play us anymore so Jax State will have to do.

Dawgystyle, we’ve actually won 4 times in 10 years, not once, and 4 out of the last 5 when Gailey isn’t coaching, but whatever, you’re on a roll.

TCU will bust Va. chops. They should fire Groh or whoever schedules these opening games for Virgina. USC now TCU. One was a national powerhouse and the other is a wanna be that will use Va. as a springboard to bigger and better things. One of the traits of ex pro coaches is not being attuned to scheduling patsies that look good but are not, like Ok State. I wonder if it is because they are handed the schedule in the NFL no power over it. That no control attitude works well in the NFL because they really don’t have control, but in college it makes you look like a Gailey or a space cadet. TCU looks like a patsy but are one of the best teams in the country. The loss will look worse than it really is and will hurt the image of the ACC even more. .
