Ok, well you didn’t say that. But I did.
For those who didn’t know, and sure most of yall did, coach Paul Johnson turned 52 on Thursday.
So, before we get to other stuff, I wanted to ask yall about cool gifts related to your favorite team. What’s the coolest Georgia Tech-related gift you’ve ever received or given, and why?
And, on to other stuff. In the practice report you may have read that Demaryius Thomas missed practice with a couple of injured digits. I wouldn’t sweat it. He’s been playing with since injuring it at the start of August. He’s just being held out as a precaution.
In other news, Kyle Jackson got to do some conditioning drills with the team today. I believe it was his first day getting to participate.
Somebody asked for an update about Roddy Jones in the previous blog. Johnson said today that Jones’ cast will be coming off Monday.
Someone also asked for an update on J.C. Lanier. He missed at least one practice earlier this week. To be honest, I didn’t get a chance to see if he was back today.
Also in the practice report I wrote about the possibility of Tech having two 1,000-yard rushers this season. Jonathan Dwyer raised the possibility of three, but that’s more the power of positive thinking, I think. But who knows?
Anyway, I wanted to get yall’s take on the possibility that Tech could have two 1k dudes this year. Nesbitt and Jones each came within 10 yards of 700 last season. Who’s to say another year in the offense couldn’t produce another 1k rusher?
