Tech freshman class arrives Wednesday

The newest batch of Georgia Tech football players is arriving. After one final evening at home Tuesday, incoming freshman quarterback Vad Lee planned to decamp from his Durham, N.C., home around midnight Wednesday to begin the trek down I-85 to Atlanta.
“I probably won’t be able to sleep,” said Lee, who was to make the drive with his parents. “It’ll probably be emotional and exciting and everything else.”
The entire class is expected to report to Tech by 8 a.m. Wednesday, excluding early enrollee Trey Braun, an offensive tackle. They’ll be fitted for equipment and move into their dorms Wednesday and go through orientation Thursday and Friday. The second session of summer classes begins Monday. Lee has been keeping in touch with many members of the 23-member 2011 signing class.
“Now we finally get to spend time with each other,” Lee said. “It’s going to be an awesome experience.”
He has also been communicating with current players such as offensive lineman Will Jackson, wide receiver Stephen Hill, B-back Charles Perkins and A-back B.J. Bostic.
Lee said he has spent the summer following a workout plan put together for the freshmen by the strength and conditioning staff and trying to prepare his body for the rigors of college football. He has done what he could to study up on the Georgia Tech offense, even looking at plays on Youtube.
“Anywhere I could find information,” he said.
While plenty of fans have been clamoring for Lee to win the starting quarterback job — he faces long odds, given the two-week window he’ll have to compete with No. 1 Tevin Washington and No. 2 Synjyn Days before the team begins preparations for the opener against Western Carolina — Lee wouldn’t bite.
“I just want to prove myself and just go out and do all that I can,” he said. “I can’t really control everything else. I know I can control myself and how I perform.”

I hope Lee also has formulated plans on how to defend himself from the trash that surrounds the ghettofabulous Tech campus.

I also wonder if he’s formulated plans on concentrating on the field when he’s playing in front of less than 30k.

Nerds!

Yeah for football, but can we stop with all the “Boo hoo, Tech basketball is over now that Oliver is leaving!” We may only have 8 scholarship players, but they are all good players. We are talking 3 and 4 star recruits – all of them. No one expects an ACC championship, but this will be a better team than last year.

I hope UGA fans find something better to do but after all they are dogs. Now Vad Lee will need to prove himself on the rose bowl field. I hope we find some help in the offense and defense line.

Jimmy is pitiful. Don`t respond and he wlll go away.
Meantime, back at the Flats, It does not matter who is listed as the QB at GT. We really do not have a real QB in CPJ`s TO offense. We have an extra running back who is designated to take the snap from the center.

Glad to see these kids had (have) the smarts and abilities earn their way into college. It’s quite obvious there are “people” on this blog who couldn’t make it past admissions and couldn’t set foot on campus as a student. I guess they highlight of their life is finally figuring out they can change their alias on the AJC blogs and try to act like multiple participants so they can converse with themselves.

It kind of like that joke about the person who can’t get a date so the only company they keep is with the person in the mirror. I think you get the idea.

Kind of early for them to report since camp does not start till Aug. 2nd. Leaves a lot of time for kids to get into some mischieve, oh, that only happens at UGa.

Funny stuff considering Georgia and Auburn are ones with the criminals in their own locker room!!! Georgia has now won the Fulmer Cup two of the past three years…featuring a school record 12 players arrested last year. Just today, Auburn has four of its players in the news for armed robbery of a family in a trailer. Looks like some college athletes need to worry about who they are being asked to room with much less who is in the community!!!
btw…30k fans…really? Do your research…GT averaged close to 50k which is more fans per student than UGA gets to the game. We cannot help it if we have less sidewalk fans because there is more to do in Atlanta than choose between attending a game and going cowtipping!

Synjyn and Tevin had better step up their game if they plan on starting. Believe it or not, passing is more important to CPJ than the average Tech fan thinks. Vad Lee has this much needed skill…

Welcome to Ma Tech frogs!
You might want to hang with the hard workers on the team and not teammates who think they’re “playas”.
Keep your head down, and your nose clean.
The pencil neck profs and the hairy legged gal profs on the Hill don’t think you’re big shots, so go to class as they’re glad to take you down a couple of notches.
You ain’t being recruited now so unless you want that coach who was so nice a short time ago in your face with spit flying, go full speed in practice. Oh and don’t be late.

I happy to see these guys arrive at the flats and glad to see Vad get some fanfare, but let’s not forget there are several potentiol future stars arriving on campus today. I am really interested to see what Greene and Waller are going to do in the WR drills and can’t wait to see how Days, Menacol, McNair, and Harrell are going to perfrom in the LB spots. Errin Joe will open huge holes for the RBs and many more guys I hate to leave out but am exited to see.

For all you haters and Dawg fans that waste your time throwing around insults and trying to belittle the opposite team……how old are you????

I would expect trash talking and non stop ignorant comments from a bunch of high school kids but I would expect much more from grown adults. Tech fans are guilty of it too, but you Dawg fans really do take it to a whole new level. How about until your team does something, ANYTHING, with their top 5 recruiting classes EVERY year, then please just keep your mouths closed. You Dawg fans talk down on us “nerds” like you are so much better. Remind me what your record was last year?? Remind me when yall didn’t score a touchdown against UCF in your bowl game??

You have nothing to be proud of Dawg nation, and you have no room to talk about anybody. So take your ignorance back to the cotton picking fields of Athens or South GA or whereever your from and please, for the sake of this state, and your relatives, please just shut up, your giving everyone around you a bad name.

That is all

Jimmy…talk about trash here’s a quote from the dawg leader, Michael Adams. Tailgaters dumped about 70 tons of garbage and left tents, grills, coolers, chairs and bottles scattered across N. Campus. They urinated on public buildings and defecated outside. If you don’t know the meaning of defecated , you might ask a non-dawg fan! Woof, woof!

Stinger2,

Actually I won’t go away. I find it amusing that I can illicit so many responses. Get a life people. It’s just a blog.

Taco,

Tech is located in the middle of a ghetto. This is fact. I was calling your mother welfare trash because I was implying she lives in the ghetto, going to so many Tech games and all.

No racism is implied. Though w/ a name like “Taco” I’m sure youre one of these illegals here in our great country draining our resources. Do you even have health insurance, or do you let the great people of this country pay for your and your families medical bills??

Take a hike, losers.

I don’t think Jimmy has ever been to Atlanta people (probably scared of the big city) b/c he states, as A FACT, that GT is “located in the middle of a ghetto”.

If he really thinks GT is “in the middle of a ghetto” then he’s more than just a loser…he’s gotta be one of the DUMBEST people to ever walk the planet. Now, THIS is fact!

I’ve been to Atlanta plenty of times, LOSER, and it is in fact located in the ghetto. How many armed robberies and drug transactions does it take to convince you people of this? And i’m just talking about the football team.

Buahahahahahahahahahha!

And a Dragon Con lovin nerd calling anyone a loser is like the armed robbing ghetto trash, that live around the Tech campus, giving a lecture on morals.

Your teams suck, you have no fan base, and you alumni are generally just a bunch of unhygienic social misfits.

But sure, call me a loser. Whatever floats your boat, NERDS.
