First, I hope yall got a chance to check out the package online and in print about some of the interesting majors that the football players have: http://www.ajc.com/sports/jackets-dogs-excel-in-the-classroom-127164.html
I’ll say this, after reading the course descriptions for those classes, I don’t know how in the world anybody graduates from college anymore. Of course, you know the old joke about journalists and math classes.
I also hope you enjoyed the special section previewing the college football season that was in Sunday’s paper.
Anyway, we’re six days away from the first game (depending upon when you read this). While I was at an outing Sunday afternoon, someone asked which player is going to make the most improvement this season.
My answer: Josh Nesbitt.
Johnson has said as much over the summer, and then he added last week that Nesbitt played the last half of last season with a bad ankle.
Based upon the improvement the offenses have shown between years 1 and 2 at Johnson’s previous stops (as documented in the special section), Nesbitt’s confidence and efficiency with the offense should be evident early against Jacksonville State.
Johnson’s quarterbacks have rushed for more than 1,000 yards in the second season. Can Nesbitt do it? Will he improve his passing percentage, which was in the low 40s last season? Will he improve his yards per completion? Will he hurt teams with his passing this year?
I believe he will, and if so, this will be an interesting year to cover Georgia Tech football.
