Bowls, bowls, bowls and awards, awards, awards

I have a note about this in tomorrow’s paper, but the loser of the ACC championship game could fall all the way to the Music City Bowl.

I’ll save the details for the print story (which I hope you read), but should the Jackets lose to Clemson, and fall to Nashville, will you go back to Music City for the second time this year?

———-

Also curious to get your thoughts on C.J. Spiller winning both the player of the year, and the offensive player of the year. Seems odd to me that one player can win both, but I don’t make up the rules. Not saying he’s not deserving, but it should be one or the other.

It should be pointed out that he ws second-team running back, and first-team specialist.

I wasn’t surprised that Nesbitt finished second, but I did think he would receive more votes.

What’s odd is the fact a coach that gets hammered in consecutive years by a 5 loss SEC teams wins the Coach of the Year award each of those seasons. hahahahahahahahahaha!!!!

Dwyer won both last year if I remember correctly.

I don’t have a problem with the Player of the Year award going to Spiller, but the Offensive Player of the year should have been someone else. Nesbitt would have been a good choice, so would have Ryan Williams or Dwyer.

BTW, Derrick Morgan winning the ACC Defensive Player of the Year???? Are you kidding????

Where was he when Ealey and King ran for over 300 yards???

Goes to show you how terrible the ACC is. At least Morgan can play in the arena league or CFL. Forget the NFL. Loser

UGA 30 – GT 24!!!!!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA!!!!

You could say that Ealey and King “Punched” GT’s defensive in the face.

Doug,

It’s clear the ACC has absolutely zero to pick from for their awards. Giving the COTY award to a guy who just lost to a team without their best player, coming off a loss to UK, while having 2 weeks to prepare for them and at home? Come on…..

Johnson was not outcoached.

Remember when Alabama lost to La. Tech the first year that Saban coached there.

In a couple of years when Tech is playing for a national championship and the dogs are playing in the booger eaters clasic in Biloxi against Georgia Southern we will see who is laughing.

Tech was a football team that lost. Georgia was a psycho ward that won. That will not change.

The Music City Bowl will be just fine for Dabo and the whining Clemson putty cats.

Between the two best ACC teams getting dominated by two middle of the road SEC teams, CPJ making a complete fool out of himself with his sourgrape comments, and now the obvious “just close my eyes and point” award selections, this is absolutely sad for the ACC.

My how they long for the ’90’s!!!!

BTW, GT cannot slide further than the Champs Sports bowl in Orlando (that’s assume that the Gator Bowl can in fact skip over them for a 4-4 FSU team). There is no senerio that sees them in the Music City Bowl.

Does anyone know if there is any truth to the rumor that Mark Richt is being considered for the FSU job? That would suck for us but he would dominate the ACC.

Hey Losers, a name well-deserved, check out GT’s last bowl games:

2008 Chick-fil-A LSU 38, Georgia Tech 3
2007 Humanitarian Fresno State 40, Georgia Tech 28
2006 Gator West Virginia 38, Georgia Tech 35
2005 Emerald Utah 38, Georgia Tech 10

Can’t even win in the Garbage Bowls. GT is pathetic. You just got PUNCHED!!!!

Saint Simon, surely you are not so stupid to think D Morgan is not an NFL caliber player. You have not watched him all year long nor his entire career and one game does not make or break a player. Please go study some football films and learn about the game before you start making more stupis statements. Now, go look in the mirror and bark and remember that barking face when someone asks you if uga fans have any class. touche’

Spiller is certainly the OPY, and I can see him winning the POY award as well. Jackets are hunting for oranges on Saturday.

The latest article on Georgia Tech Football is now available for viewing on http://isportsweb.com. Getting ready for the ACC Championship Game this Saturday in Tampa. Go Jackets!

I actually did hear something about that today on 790. But his whole family is here, so I don’t see him leaving any time soon.

I hope not. I’m just worried because he has connections to FSU, and as bad as they’ve been lately, it’s still a big time program with a lot of national respect.

Clemson isn’t accustomed to being dominated by SC like GT is with their superior, UGA. The tigers will be extra aggressive and angry on Saturday. UGA gave them the blueprint. I’d watch out.

Richt leaves opens the door for Muschamp or Smart.

However, if he was leaving, he would have made a statement by leaving with his guys. Don’t see him firing other guys and walking 3 days later.

I heard that same thing on 790 today. From what they were saying, he may be interviewing later this week. I doubt he would go anywhere though. I wouldn’t be surprised if he turned the interview down.

No way Richt leaves! He’s got to good of a thing at UGA. Well be right back up there next year.

It hasn’t even been a week and you are already out of material. I thought with CPJ’s gifts you’d be more creative. Oh well, Tech rolls on. UGA sits at home.

Hey UGA fans…you do realize that Tech never punted in the game right?? The only things that stopped their offense was turnovers, missed field goals or running out of time So shut up with the “we shut down the GT offense sh*t.”

You did win the game and did play a better game but in no way did you shut down the GT offense.

The Dawgs will be back next year? Spare me, you’ll have either Aron “no experience” Murray under center or Logan “throw to UF defenders” Gray as your QB. Dawgs will be lucky to be 7-5 again next year, a new D-Coordinator isn’t going to help you that much as they can only scheme for their opponent they don’t actually make the plays. UGAs problem all year was the team played undisciplined defense whether it be giving up the big play or committing stupid penalties.

No thanks. We don’t need any advice from a fan of a loser team we defeated in their house, without our best player with Yech having 2 weeks to prepare. :)

I heard something today and I hope it is true. I wanted to see if you could find out or confirm.

Have you heard anything about Tech signing or offering a kicker from Armuchee High School near Rome. Kid’s name is Tommy Harris and he can kick the freaking lights out! I hope it’s true… please let it be true. Lord knows we need a kicker!

Josh Nesbitt should’ve run away with the OPY award. He was hands down the biggest threat with the football in his hands.

Spiller is a Reggie Bush type, who doesn’t do well running between the tackles.
