Nesbitt on Kam Chancellor’s comment

I would be remiss if I didn’t revisit the comments made by Virginia Tech safety Kam Chancellor this summer during an ACC media session in Greensboro.
Paraphrasing, Chancellor said he picked up something while watching film of the Jackets that he thought gave him a pretty good idea where the ball was going and what the play would be.
When asked about that at the same media session, coach Paul Johnson said that Chancellor should be able to make every tackle.
Chancellor had six tackles on Saturday.
Josh Nesbitt was asked if the team talked about Chancellor’s comments this week in the lead-up to the game.
He smiled and said, “How about them Jackets?”

Me and two of my friends ended up with a goalpost piece (I don’t care about the bad grammar at this point!). Had to break in to my lab across campus to steal a hacksaw to get the job done. Don’t tell my boss.
That’s going to be a hell of a memory from my senior year!!

juvenal, we DID play in front of a large, sold out stadium…and beat the #4 team in the nation. Do you really think your Pooches could’ve done the same today? Go back to playing around with Vandy. We’ll show you how to really beat them in two weeks.

BIG HUGE win tonight!!! The road to 11-1 just got clearer!!! Now, time to buckle down and beat Virginia in Charlottesville for the first time since…

…1990. That last win there is commemorated in grand fashion with “Toe Meets Leather” – now available at http://www.stinGTees.com! Get yours tonight/today!

During the ESPN late highlights of the game, they showed Chancellor getting fooled on play after play in the 2nd half. It was Kam’s lowlights…they specifically showed how GT took him completely out. What a night!! What a win!! BDS was rocking.

Notre Dame played its 1 good opponent all season long. And, Lost to knock Notre Dame out of the Top 25 of every poll. Notre Dame had managed, you recall, to Lose to 1 of its NON-RANKED opponents already. This is the only “opponent” on Notre Dame’s “Schedule” who is a ranked team, all season long.

Tennessee had a bye week. The vols will debut in the BCS Poll today at Number 43. The vols play Alabama next week, the only RANKED team on the vols’ “schedule” all season long except for Florida. The vols have already managed to lose 3. This week will be 4.

Florida beat LSU last week, the ONLY RANKED TEAM on Florida’s schedule, all season long. Florida beat South Carolina on a last second field goal, after the refs handed the crocodiles the game on the previous drive, with phantom call after phantom call to tie the game up. Then South Carolina missed an easy field goal that would have given Steve Spurrier the lead back.

Auburn, who plays its ONLY RANKED TEAM all season long next week at LSU besides the Alabama game to end the season, has seen fit to drop 2 of its games anyway. Auburn will debut in the BCS Rankings today at about the same ranking as the vols and Georgia do – all 3 teams NOT in The SEC top half but in the bottom half of The SEC.

The SEC will be the highest average BCS Ranking of every conference.

Oklahoma will drop out of the Top 25. Texas will be Number 3 behind both Florida as 1 and Alabama as 2.

LSU will debut at Number 7 in the BCS Rankings today, and ONLY plays 2 RANKED TEAMS all season long. The first was a Loss to Florida. The 2nd is Alabama and will also be a Loss leaving LSU in the Top 10 at the end of the season.

Ole Miss will debut in the BCS Rankings today almost in the Top 25, as it has on its resume the inexplicable Loss to UNRANKED South Carolina, which mars its season, just as the Loss to the UNRANKED vols mars Georgia’s season. Otherwise, Ole Miss plays 2 ranked teams in Losses to Alabama already and surely to LSU in the game before the Egg Bowl. It would be expected that Ole Miss will beat the lowly vols, right ?

Arkansas’ Bobby Petrino Lost to 1 Florida yesterday, 2 Alabama earlier and plays 7 LSU to end the season; but, Bobby Petrino Lost to UNRANKED Georgia leaving Bobby Petrino in the 2nd half of The SEC with the lowly vols and UNRANKED Georgia, all ranked about Number 43 in the BCS with the Average SEC team ranked Number 38.

Kentucky managed to beat Auburn this week, after having Lost 3 straight to 1 Florida, 2 Alabama and last week by 2 points to UNRANKED Steve Spurrier’s South Carolina hard luck crowd. There are no other RANKED TEAMS on Kentucky’s schedule besides 1 Florida and 2 Alabama, and the games at Georgia and then home to welcome the vols will determine Kentucky’s season.

Vanderbilt is not a good football team at all with Losses to Army and Mississippi State. So, you would expect Georgia Tech who plays only 1 game against anyone good, Georgia to end its season, to play Intramural Vandy in the game after next right ? Exactly. Vandy will end up 2-10 with its only win over a 1-A BCS team its win over 0-7 Rice. The only other win is over non-qualifying Western Carolina. Sad football team Vandy.

Mississippi State will end up 5-9, having a season no different from Vandy. So, you would expect that they too, played Georgia Tech, right ? Exactly.

Georgia Tech, who played 1 RANKED TEAM all season long and LOST, before last night, faces NO OTHER RANKED TEAM all season long. The only problem with Tech’s schedule, is that it faces Georgia to end the season, after having popped off its collective mouth (both of them) in here. The ACC is a really lousy conference.

Ohio State and Oklahoma both LOST AGAIN, which should knock both out of the Top 25, but it will be close to about Number 25 for both, maybe.

The Big 10 really sucks, while they have Iowa (joke) and Pennsylvania State (joke) to act like those 2 at least are any good at all, while playing NO ONE.

Not that Michigan plays any one any good all season long.

TCU and BYU face off next week, and neither plays a single ranked team all season long, besides this 1 game. Oklahoma will drop from the top 25, in my opinion. Therefore the Mountain West does NOT look any good at all, all ranked about Number 100 the entire conference, otherwise – just like the Big 10 and ACC.

Southern California, who prefers to be called USC like South Carolina is, plays its 1 RANKED TEAM, Oregon coming up the week after next. Ohio State’s loss today to previously zero Purdue ruins any chest thumping by Southern California for having beat Ohio State. Ohio State, bwaaaah.

Purdue had lost its previous 5 games in a row, including to Northern Illinois, but beat Ohio State by more than a Touchdown this week to absolutely put a fork in Ohio State yet again this season. Ohio State has issues.

Kansas Lost its game against hapless Colorado, and still faces a season of 5 Losses for Kansas. Please explain how the block of voters who vote as a block had Kansas a ranked team, please ? The “top-rated” team on Kansas’ schedule so far this season is debuting today in the BCS Rankings at Number 71, Duke.

Missouri Lost to Oklahoma State. This knocks both Missouri and Kansas from the Top 25. obviously.

Nebraska Lost too, so all 3 of those teams should be dropped from the Top 25.

Ole Miss could possibly almost move back into the Top 25.

Tennessee will not.

Georgia has Losses to Top 15 Oklahoma State, Top 7 LSU whom we should have beat, and to lowly Number 43 Tennessee vols to ruin our season last week. We face Number 1 Florida, a beatable team will not beat, next week. Then, we finish our season totally PO d against Georgia Tech, in here shooting its mouth off – both of you Tech fans.

The Tech ticket office was open right up to kick-off tonight in supposedly the only game Tech has ever played. The game was NOT a sell-out. Even with 4 cokes, 2 hotdogs, a bag of peanuts and a free parking pass to every ticket purchaser against supposedly a great football team, blown out by Alabama, and who hasn’t and won’t play a good team besides Alabama all season long. The ACC is a sorry football conference of nobody football teams.

SoS for the full season shows UGA’s Strength of Schedule is Number 5 in the country and Georgia Tech’s NOT in the Top 50.

Let’s see, while UGA faces Number 1 Florida next game, who does Georgia Tech face the rest of the year besides us ? 66 Virginia, 108 Vandy, 50 Weak Forest, 71 Duke. Nice schedule there Tech. Wusses. Play a real schedule. Play in a real conference.

Georgia could end up playing 4 top 10 teams in the Final Polls this year. Georgia Tech is the 1 game I would not give 2 hoots for Tech’s chances in, not after last year and what has been on this rag since. Try comparing records. Oh Tech will play against an ACC Coastal team in a game which no one will care about and no one will go to the game because Tech fans don’t go to your own home games against teams supposedly in the Top 4 in the nation.

Georgia Tech plays whom for the ACC Chumpionship ?

BCS Number 50 Weak Forest ?

BCS Number 51 Boston College ?

BCS Number 58 Climpsum Farmers ?

BCS Number 60 Florida State Creminoles ?

BCS Number 74 North Carolina State ?

BCS Number 85 Ralph Friedgen Maryland ?

No one gives a rats’ behind who Georgia Tech plays in the ACC Chumpionship Game. Let’s talk it up AJ-C. Who will Georgia Tech play ? God. Who cares.

Wow, BuLLdawg, are you real proud of the fact that you have more fans than we do? Are you proud of being one small element assimilated into a huge hunkering mass of nose-picking barkers? Gee, I guess the USA should feel inferior to China since they have more people than we do. I guess if I run across some guy who has more people at his family reunion than I have at mine, I should wish I were in his family instead of mine.

Now that you dawgies are slipping into Rice and Tulane-Ville, I guess that’s all you’ve got left in your arsenal: “We’uns got more people than you’uns do. Woof. Woof.”

Your team will have their opportunity in November…we look forward to the challenge. Win or loose I will guarantee you that Tech will handle themselves with class. I hope that you find time to relax a little…you sounded a little stressed!

Hey Doug, how bout a photo of a piece of the goal post from the 1990 Citrus Bowl. I have a piece of one upright on proud display in my soon-to-be man room in the basement. Simply awesome. As we were walking up the hill, I could see pandamonium still going on in the stadium. Didn’t realize those guys were ripping down the north goal post. That will be a prize piece of history for whomever the owners are. The REAL and ONLY Tech stood up last night to be recognized. Just awesome!

1. UGa lost to Okstate, who also lost to that perennial power Houston. Second, LSU is overrated, 3 points at home to the concussion led gators? Tenn, who killed the dawgs, got whipped by UCLA earlier this year, UCLA! And, since we want to throw out crap, how did you guys get Ealey eligible?? He didn’t qualify not too long ago according to some reports. Must have followed that famous Uga tradition of hitting Juco first. Classy posts, get used to the reality. Paul Johnson runs a much better program than Richt, and after this season, you guys are going to start getting challenged here in Ga with recruiting. I mean, why go to the ‘well we played hard but lost Dawgs’ when you can go to the ‘put up or shut up’ Johnson Jackets. We know Uga has a bigger stadium, knucklehead, but just wait. You wouldn’t be posting here if you were confident in your program. Maybe you guys should hire Weiss next.

Two history lessons for fans. With a 37-15 win at Auburn In its last game, Georgia beat a top-five team on its home field for the first time in school history. Today, Georgia looks to beat a ranked Georgia Tech team for the first time as an unranked squad. Georgia is 0-8 all-time in these matchups.

n n

06, First time in Uga history they beat a top five team. Considering tonight, puts things in perspective, don’t it? Finally, check out the number of titles:
GT – 4 National Titles, most recent 1990
Uga – 1, 1980, only because of Walker
Sleep well, bulldawg, we will see you soon with our less than sold out stadium, and still crush the Dawgs. Thank God for Martinez.

Oklahoma State is ranked AHEAD of Georgia Tech.

LSU is ranked AHEAD of Georgia Tech.

Florida is ranked AHEAD of Georgia Tech, our next opponent.

Houston is RANKED only 5 spots worse than Georgia Tech. What ? Is Georgia Tech a power every year in college football ? For 8 straight consecutive years in the Final AP Poll, Georgia Tech has been ranked WORSE than Georgia. I hardly think Tech, then, is any power every year in college football either. Right ? Can’t believe you pick on Houston.

vols are not a good team, agreed, that was a bad loss by UGA no doubt. It is like Tech’s Loss to Miami of Florida. Name me a team ranked in the BCS Top 25 today that Miami of Florida beat ? You can’t. Because there is NOT 1.

Anytime you want to compare GEORGIA TECH’S NOT IN THE TOP 50 Strength of Schedule with UGA’s Number 5 in the country, let me know please ?

You have failed to do so.

Doug — if you’re out there, could you clear-up who would win the division if Tech, Miami, and VT all win out? I know that once one team is eliminated from the three team tie breaker system, it reverts to the two team tie breaker system. But, when you look at the rules, a couple of the tie breakers are little confusing.

Poor little bulldawg, you whine about a top 5 schedule only to justify to yourself why you will have 5 or 6 losses by the end of the year. As I said from the beginning of the year, it must suck to be a UGAy fan as you could only hope to play for 2nd place of the SEC east. With at least 3 SEC losses you might still have a chance at that 2nd place title as the SEC sucks except for two teams. Now go get some rest so you can be ready for the lunch and dinner pizza delivery runs.

Back to real football. Nesbitt is becoming a real hero for this team. Yes, he has made some pitch mistakes. Making accurate pitches is much harder than it looks when you are in the 4th quarter and as exhausted as he must be after all the runnng and hits he takes during the game.

Great game, Great team, Great coach! It’s GREAT to BE A YELLOW JACKET!

Should Georgia Tech, Miami and Virginia Tech all win out and tie for the Coastal Division, the tiebreaker will likely go all the way down to highest-rated BCS team. Of course, should one team be within 5 spots of another, that gets convoluted, as well. It could come down to the toss of a coin.
GT and VT would seem to have the easiest road left.
