I know that yall only read ajc.com for all of your sports news, , but I happened to glance at a couple of other sites today.
What do you know, Georgia Tech has suddenly become the favorite in the ACC, according to CNNSI.com’s Stewart Mandel. He predicts the Jackets to make it to the Orange Bowl.
But wait, there’s more.
ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit confirmed Mandel’s vote (a little jab at ESPN’s practice of confirming already-published reports. As if ESPN confirming it validates the legitimacy of the news), and also said that Tech is going to make it to the Orange Bowl.
I thought y’all would be interested….
Coach Paul Johnson was asked if he had any memories of his first season-opener as an assistant coach at Avery County high school in 1979. He said he didn’t, though he joked he may have had a mohawk.
If you have any questions about the team, I’ll check back at 1:30 or so tomorrow.
