Great sign of things to come with Ben Anderson stepping up to give D. Morgan some needed help. Hopefully this will continue against UGA.

This game could get ugly for Jawja. I’ll be in front of the tv from the first to the last touchdown.

Like to hear from those who have purchased their tix to the ACC title game in Tampa..I bought mine last Friday.. also for thos GT fans, I noticed Microtel Inn on 5405 N Church Ave is 1 mile from the stadium and has very reasonable rates…if you do not go thru the GTAA to purchase your tickets, you can thru Ticketmaster, theACC.com will have layout of stadium. the West Stands is the Coastal Side.

“Two Star Anderson” and “probably will never play” to starting all 12 games, ACC honors and contributing several clutch plays thru a 10-1 Coastal Division winning season. Well..well…well…..

Congratulations to both Howard and Anderson who have been battling in the trenches all year. Who needs “stars” when you have all galactic heart! Tech has finally reached their bye week and should get everyone rested and healed just in time for this game, and more importantly, the ACC Championship Game.

@HaHa: You can always put it deep in the opponent’s “end zone” when you take the field with a BIG JOHNSON!

Anyone know which side of Raymond James Stadium will be the GT side? Looking at tix on StubHub, need to know which aisles to look at!

Jeez, Doug – did you have to mention 2005?? I remember sitting at that game watching them march down the field using the ground game when Reggie throws the pass for the interception. Another Chan Gailey classic. CPJ would have kept running the ball down their throat – the rushing game was unstoppable on that drive.

Supersize that order, mutt

Have reservations at the Tampa-Westshore Airport Doubletree Hotel, 1 mile from the airport and 5 minutes from the stadium. Great rates, and it’s possible (can’t tell for sure) that they offer free shuttle service to the stadium.

The only way we win against Ghetto Tech is to play diciplined, without stupid penalties and turnovers. I won’t bet the house rent money on it. Congrats on a great year Tech. Enjoy. You get to keep your rings another year or maybe get another one. Who knows what reward awaits. Damn good team, Tech!

DamnGoodDawg,

It’s going to be interesting to see if the GT defense can play disciplined as well. While they stopped the bleeding after Duke made their two scores in the first quarter, the last game was filled with bad angles and missed tackles. I love what our offense is doing, but defense and special teams are a different bag each time.

You can go on ticketmaster and buy $25 or $50 seats and get them 1/2 price by entering the code acc1 for the ACC Championship.

DamnGoodDawg,

I think you’ve got it all wrong. Yes, Tech is located in the heart of Midtown Atlanta (I know, I live here), but we are not in the “Ghetto” – if you want to know where that is, ask your players; I’m sure they know since that’s where your thugs come from. If anything it should be U “Ghetto” A, or University of Grade-school Academics.

DamnGoodDog,

Well, I understood your post as a tangential complement. As such, thanks! But shoot, if that’s true then it makes it more difficult to rail against you guys – so cut it out!

Why doesn’t SAINT SIMONS ever post on Tech blogs? What a douche bag. I bet he was 0-4 at Glynn Academy proms!
