Just win, baby

Well, Tech knows where it is in the BCS (12), it knows where Miami is (two spots ahead at 10), and where VT is (two spots behind at 14).
The Jackets know they must win out, and that either Miami must lose once in the ACC, or (if I’m figuring this correctly) that the Hokies must stay within five spots of the Canes and keep them all together in the tiebreaker scenario. Should that happen, it’ll come down to a draw.
I’m not sure anybody wants to see that.
Comrade Jeff Schultz posted a very interesting scenario on how Tech can make it all the way to the national title game. Make sure you check that out.

Here are the ACC stats, straight from www.theacc.com. It’s stunning that UVA is 3-3 when you see where they rank on offense and special teams.

Sounds Great…. but like you said we just have to stay focused and win… everything else will take care of itself. Also if USF beats Miami they drop in the BCS and we take over lead of the three way tie.

Also I wanted to say that last night was one of the best nights I have ever spend in Bobby Dodd! The atmosphere was incredible. The guys working the board really kept the crowd in the game, that coupled with the cool weather and night game made it feel like November with something to prove! Its been a really long time! Keep it up Jackets.

Doug… could you find out the status of D. Morgan and J Burnett. We saw them both leave the field late and haven’t heard anything. Thanks! And keep the good stuff coming, really enjoying your coverage this year.

tech could have strippers as ushers & still not sell out

p.s. For all you SEC fanatics.. GT winning out would include a 3-0 record against your precious SEC teams. 2-1 in that stat last season including 45 points on your bulldogs and a near shutout of your other bulldogs from MS. New top “dog” in the state and a national contender in the South East. Eat it mutts. THWG!

Probably the best Tech game I’ve been to, and that counts the comeback win over Virginia in 1998. The atmosphere was quite SEC-like and the Jackets didn’t look like they were ever not in control of the game. Now the job is to run the table. Win out. I was one of the first to say we could do it – now appears everyone is on the bandwagon ;) . That’s quite alright. But the rest of the journey starts with the first step into Charlottesville. The last time we won there was 1990 – a win immortalized in “Toe Meets Leather”, now available at http://www.stinGTees.com. Get yours before Saturday!

I wasnt at the game last night, but man i really wish i wouldve been, that atmosphere looked incredible and the scene after the game must’ve been amazing. I was at the game back in 2002 when we beat highly ranked Auburn and watching the students tear down the goal post and carrying it down 10th street. I am SOOOO proud of this team, they play like they know they can win and thats a credit to our head coach. CPJ is such a breath of fresh air, this guy gets it, he may be the best in-game coach in the country. I knew he would make the proper adjustments after halftime and he did. Believe it or not the game this week is even bigger than the Va Tech game, after such an emotional game last night and all the ups and downs, to prevail in the end and then we turn around and play at a place we havent had the best of success is going to be tough, but i know this coach will get this team prepared. Until then lets enjoy this win, enjoy the 12 BCS ranking hopefully enjoy a successful second half of the season..

GO JACKETS!!!!

Interesting stat that we lead in onside kicks against (5 against and next closest is 2). That shows we have teams on the rope and desperate not to turn it back over to our offense. Also, I’m sure we’d lead at knees taken in the victory formation!

If the only thing UGAg fans can get on Tech is we can’t sell out BDS, then they are in dire straights. I find it funny, but every game I have been to (since 1979) I have seen at least one person wearing UGAg at our games. If they love their dogs so much, then they should be no where near BDS on a Saturday.

Nevertheless, Tech needs to focus on UVa and UVa only. It is almost a good situation that Tech has struggled up there so they won’t be overconfident heading up to C’ville this week. CPJ will have them ready and want some payback for last year. Tech has beaten 2/3 teams they lost to last year in the ACC and beating UVa will complete the trifecta.

Keep winnin’ Jackets!!! Full Steam Ahead!!!

Doug –

In addition to an ACC loss, a Miami loss at South Florida on Nov. 28 could also change Tech’s fortune. Assuming VT and GT win out (which would have to happen for GT to have a shot), a Miami loss to South Florida could keep them from being within 5 slots of top ranked GT or VT.

If all are 10-1 going into the last week, they will have moved up at least two spots (Oregon/USC has to lose and LSU should lose to Bama). Let’s say one or two of Cincy/Iowa/TCU lose too.

Miami would be 7-8, GT 8-9, and VT 10-11. If Miami loses that’s one more slot GT moves up. End of the season GT would be 7 or 8, meaning if a loss to USF knocks the U back to 13 or 14 they’d be more than 5 slots behind Tech.

The worst things for Tech would be an LSU upset over Bama (could drop Bama behind Miami but in front of Tech), an Oregon win over USC (although unlikely, could also drop USC between Tech and Miami). From the back end, an Ok St upset loss of Texas could let them jump Tech, as could an Ohio State win over Iowa (might not drop Iowa enough and might jump Ohio State).

We need to get as close to Miami in the rankings. The only way to do that is to win. And the best way to do that is take these games one at a time (unlike the post above) and beat uva this weekend.

Well, looks like our high school offense pulled out another one. I don’t know how Paul Johnson continues to beat all these teams with our offense. I thought a VT player said he had already figured it out back during the preseason. I know all these idiot fans of opposing teams have talked about how it was just a matter of time until everyone is able to stop our high school offense. Well I have bad news for you. Our offense is getting better every week and Josh Nesbitt is becoming a future Heisman Candidate. Bring on Bama or Florida.

Holy crap, what a football weekend here in atlanta. I just got home from the falcons game…awesome. But I just wanted to say how great the scene at Bobby Dodd was last night. It was one of my favorite nights there ever. What a great game. Now, as others have astutely noted, we owe Virginia some serious payback for last year. One at a time!

you are wrong, doug. in the event that the three tied teams are all within 5 of the top-ranked, then the tiebreaker is not a draw, but the head-to-head matchup between the highest ranked and 2nd highest ranked. in order for a draw to occur, the teams would have to be tied in their BCS rank, which is next to impossible.

Sagarin has the Jackets at #10, VT #7, & Miami at #13. Sagarin is part of the BCS.

To “tech could have strippers ..”, Sagarin has the ACC as #3, the SEC as #2, & the PAC10 as #1.
The SEC is slightly stronger this year because of Alabama and Florida, not because of Georgia so you have little reason to taunt except that you are obviously an Idiot and don’t know any better.

Somewhat puzzling is that GT beat VT yet is ranked lower whereas Miami beat GT and is also lower. Go figure.

We still have along way to go & the focus should be on UVA which has given us problems at their home.

Nonetheless, I predict that Miami will lose one probably to Clemson and if not to either UNC or Wake Forest and that the Jackets will win the rest and take the ACC Championship if we get decent officiating as we did in the VT game.

GO JACKETS!!

ACC has only 3 teams ranked, and the best is Miami of Florida who plays no one the rest of the year. Georgia Tech LOST to Miami of Florida 17-33.

CollegeBCS.com projects Virginia Tech in the BCS Bowl, and Georgia Tech relegated to the Gator Bowl.

Not that it matters, because no one from Georgia Tech will go. Georgia Tech is the very worst school in the Southeast in traveling well.

Jeff Schultz can write all he wants, and the facts will REMAIN the SAME. Georgia Tech is NOT going to a BCS Bowl. Miami of Florida plays NO ONE. There is NOT a team in the Top 25 remaining for Miami of Florida to play, not 1. There is not a team in the Top 50 remaining for Miami of Florida to play, not 1.

Never mind that Georgia Tech has an even softer easier schedule than Miami of Florida. Georgia Tech has games against NO ONE, except for UGA to end the season. By then, Miami of Florida will face off against hapless Boston College who has an even softer schedule than Miami of Florida and Georgia Tech.

ACC.

Bunch of junk.

Has been.

Is.

Will be.

Weak Forest, Maryland and Duke all 3 have the 3 softest schedules of any BCS school in America : SoS # 83, #84 and # 85 in the country. This is because there is NO top ACC team. Never has been. Never will be. And, certainly is NOT.

As the announcers said on the TV game of Georgia Tech Saturday night, it is BAD for the ACC that Virginia Tech lost.

10 AP Poll Number 10 Miami of Florida BEAT Georgia Tech 33-17.

13 AP Poll Number 13 Georgia Tech LOST to Miami of Florida no one there.

15 AP Poll Number 15 Virginia Tech blown out by Alabama, lost to Ga Tech, also not even a sell-out.

In the Atlantic Division, there is NO RANKED TEAM.

CUPCAKES PLAYING CUPCAKES.

Whichever Coastal team goes to the ACC Chumpionship Game, plays yet ANOTHER CUPCAKE.

Georgia Tech plays Georgia.

Georgia Tech knows NOTHING about the PASS, not on Offense, and NOT on Defense either.

114 Ga Tech # 114 Passing Offense.

108 Ga Tech # 108 Passing Efficiency Defense.

78 Ga Tech # 78 Total Defense misses Jon Tenuta against soft schedule.

68 Ga Tech # 68 Rushing Defense.

79 Ga Tech # 79 Kick-off Returning team.

72 Ga Tech # 72 Scoring Defense.

60 Ga Tech # 60 Net Punting.

86 Ga Tech # 86 Pass Defense.

70 Ga Tech # 70 Sacking opposing quarterbacks.

91 Ga Tech # 91 Tackling for a Loss.

ACC does NOT compete nationally. And, Jeff Schultz writes an article of how Georgia Tech is going to win a National Championship. That would be a 1st since Georgia Tech has NEVER EVER been Ranked Number 1 in the Final AP Poll.

I know you guys are down there in the slums of Atlanta where the crime and drugs are, but seriously put your pipe down, get outside and get some exercise and try to meet a girl or something normal because Georgia Tech is NOT winning any national championship since you cannot even play in the ACC Chumpionship Game. You play a weak schedule, have no good game left, just a LOSS to UGA. You beat 1 team who is RANKED in the BCS Rankings Top 25 and that team beat NO ONE in the BCS Rankings Top 25. You never see a pass, so you can’t defend the pass nor throw one yourself. You have a horrid defense, and not all this is against a really sorry soft schedule. National Championship when Tech has NEVER been # 1 in the Final AP Poll EVER, ha ha ha ha ha. Put the pipe down nerds, you jerks.

BullDawg-

Just can’t handle it can you? Probably laying in a dark room in the corner in the fetal position shivering like an overgrown baboon. Face it, UGAG just plain sucks. It’s so comical how you say Georgia Tech hasn’t played anyone. We just dominated Virginia Tech who was the 4th ranked team in the country, score was indictive of how much better Tech played in the game, taking control in the second half and manhandling a VT team.

But, you can’t handle it. Can’t handle those puppies being where they are. Strength of schedule you want to talk about? LOL. Ok, well fact is you’ve beat nobody. Nobody in the top 25, at any point this season. The SEC has two teams, Alabama and Florida that are worthwhile. Everyone else is complete shi+, and you don’t play but one of those. But you keep crying about Georgia Tech. We are all laughing.

As a Georgia fan I will admit that Tech will continue to be a handful — so long as you have a QB like Nesbitt. Not only does the guy run that offense beautifully, he is fearless. He’ll take a pounding and keep coming. What you have to be concerned about, IMHO, is having a QB who gets gun shy after taking the repeated pounding that a QB in that offense takes. If CPJ can keep getting guys like Nesbitt, Tech will be formidable. But that’s a big If. He is special.

This week’s game against the Cavaliers will be THE Statement game. 1- because of the 9 year streak and 2- because this game is where it will all come together with Egbuniwe, Cooper and Burnett all back, the defense will play it’s best game of the year, the offense just keeps getting better with Thomas making more spectacular catches. Tech flexes its muscles and rolls up some style points while scoring over 50 points. Yes, this is the statement game and the start of a new streak.

I’m not really concerned with the rankings – if we win out, we’ll be top 10, and no worse than Gator Bowl – which is a pretty good worst case. Nat Championship is way unlikely, and Orange Bowl is out of our hands (I think Wake is our best shot at a Miami loss); a BCS at large into the Sugar or Fiesta would be cool (with the Fiesta, they’d have to wedge one more sign onto the Wardlaw building).

It was funny listening to Davie and Jones go on and on about Bud Foster Saturday night, while VPI proceeded to have absolutely no answer for our O in the 2nd half. Clearly the winning strategy this year is for the D to hang on long enough for coach to figure out the right blocking scheme. Our greatest game since at least the week before, and why couldn’t we have Nessler on it?

So – is Texas A&M going to win enough games to play UGa in Shreveport this year, or is the Indy Bowl going to have to look beyond the Big 12 for an opponent? :)

I’ve never seen such enthusiasm prior to, and during any game (including UGa) in over 30+ years and I’m proud of the students as well as the team. As the players said, it made a difference during the game.

Keep it up, especially during the road trips!

Go Jackets!

Bubba, classy Dawg indeed.

Paul Johnson will use whoever is at quarterback. He use their strengths and work on the weakness. The next qb for Ga Tech in future may throw the ball more in the option.

O’Leary had Joe Hamilton “The Option & Arm” & Godsey “The Arm”, he used them differently.

Paul Johnson is a better Coach. We should be fine in the future, but for now “Keep Winning!”

Oh, “Ramblin Wreck!”

Bulldawg,

Please put the razor down; cutting your wrists ISN’T the answer. Georgia may be a decent team again in a few years. Just hold on, lady…just hold on.

It seems like there’s many more UGA fans showing up here this week.. it’s certainly because they’ve lost interest in their own team and forums….

Of course…. I DON’T blame them. It’s really all about their coaching. They’re jealous. UGA has had some really good talent… and year after year it consistently goes to waste, so they’ve given up….. and to make themselves feel better they come to our forum.

I can’t wait to beat up the pups again this year! (sorry PJ, I didn’t mean to look ahead that far)

GO JACKETS!

Great stats! But they mean absolutely nothing. Tech has to stay focused on preparing for UVA. If they can stay as focused as they were Saturday (even though they had some real bonehead plays), they can compete with anyone. Great game. Great atmosphere. Best Tech game I’ve been to in many, many years. Thanks CPJ for making it truly fun on the Flats again!

the best part about BuLLdawg’s rant above is that he submitted it at 4:11 am. He can’t sleep, he can’t spell, and he especially can’t stand the fact that GT is winning and his beloved leg-humpers are struggling. SMILE, SMILE, ALL THE WHILE :o )

It is becoming obvious to me that Paul Johnson is in control of the game from the first kickoff until Josh takes a knee to run out the clock. Beamer got out-coached Saturday.

BuLLdawg – Nevermind, no response needed, your post says it all.

Tech needs to focus on the current one-week season. The only game to worry about is UVA.

GoJackets – The last time I looked, there were three seniors on the TWO-deep roster. Next year should also be an interesting year.

can’t even sell out what was the biggest home game in at least the last 10 years.

techsters should be embarrassed, how in the world you can’t sell out your stadium for that game is beyond me.

joke by coke- at least we can win our biggest home game of the last 10 years, remind me again how UGA has done in that department

Doug Robertson- I’m afraid it won’t come down to a draw. The rule says: “The tied team with the highest ranking in the Bowl Championship Series Standings following the conclusion of regular season games shall be the divisional representative in the ACC Championship Game, unless the SECOND of the tied teams is ranked within five-or-fewer places of the highest ranked tied team. In this case, the head-to-head results of the TOP TWO ranked tied teams shall determine the representative in the ACC Championship Game.”

Having VA Tech within 5 of Miami doesn’t matter. Only the top two teams are taken into consideration. So basically, we need Miami to lose again, to anyone, preferably an ACC team.

Two things to work on this week.:
Keeping UVA out of the red zone. Their 1000% when they get there.
Pressuring the QB. Most sacks given up, do this and the above will not be as much of a problem.

If UM, GT and VT win out then Miami goes to the ACC Championship game, however if Miami loses to Clemson or NC and the 2 techs win out, then GT represents the Coastal Div. The likely scenario is that Clemson or NC will beat Miami.

You suck “joke by coke”. Who gives a sh–, we won! Something we will also revel in when Tech stomps the sh– out of the leg-humpers in a few weeks. All bulldogs lick their nu– or anybody’s nu–. Maybe except uga, who is probably balless.

Was Bud Foster holding a rope on the wakeboard? I was watching on ESPN360 (from Germany) and I couldn’t see the rope, although it was slightly fuzzy. I am sick of defending the ACC to bashers like Bulldawg. Just let the arse whooping in November on the flats do the talking like it did last year. Great win for the Jackets and Nesbitt is awesome. I agree that the UVA game really shouldn’t be close. I was there at BDS when they beat us last year though and anyhting can happen in this game. Go Jackets!
