Maybe 12:30’s their good luck charm since that’s what time they played Maryland! Oh wait, they played MTSU at that time slot too. well, whatever. Go Jackets!

That’s right! Go Jackets! Wear the gold helmets again, we seem to win more when we wear the gold.

I am for the gold helmets, too! They looked good. How many QB’s does UNC have? I think that Lee is getting his feet under him a little better. He definitely improved his QB follow play as the game progressed. Vad looks quick and his passes are getting to the receivers faster. As Coach said, we should have been 4-for-4 in passing on Saturday. GO JACKETS!!!

Just looked it up, their QB Renner has 18 TD’s and 6 picks. Completing 62% of his passes. Their backup has only thrown 14 passes.

Renner is very good at the dink and dunks which cause us headaches and Giovanni is a man among men this year. Look for UNC to roll up yardage against GT. The only defense GT has is their offense, so it better be on this Saturday or it could make for a very long day.

UNC out of ACCCG and Miami may join them.
Our chances are getting better if we keep winning.
The rest of the division may be disqualified at this rate.

Unc backup QB, Marquise Williams, was highly touted recruiit equivalent in stars to LeMay, Vad, and Golston. He comes in in a wildcat formation. He can run and throw. He is sort of the same situation as LeMay. He is playing behind a top performer in Bryn Renner.

Lot’s of things need to go our way, wouldn’t hold my breath on reaching the championship game. Let’s instead worry about first beating Unc which shouldn’t be a cakewalk by any means.

How about we straight up win the conference (with a fair amount of help). Assuming GT wins out over UNC & Duke, VPI loses to FSU. AND Miami loses to both the resurgent UVA and Duke then GT would take the Coastal….stranger things have happened, Can’t imagine what that 5 game parley would pay out, but is is possible.

Focus, intensity, execution. Keys to winning in Chapel Hill just like in College Park. Did I say intensity?

We can do this.I saw athleticism and life in our team Saturday…

Ouch. 12:30. And our group is heading up to the game on Saturday from Atlanta. Double ouch. Six hour drive and we’re wanting to get lunch before hand. The price we pay to be students who actually support our team ;) Just kidding. Looking forward to the long drive, regardless of what happens. This is maybe the biggest game of the season. Win this one, and then we can start thinking about the future. Go Jackets.

There are six of us — by us, I mean, six computer formulas used to help determine the BCS standings.

Don’t HUMANS have to program these computers with “formulas”? And can’t these HUMANS “formulate” an “SEC advantage”? Maybe that’s why there are TWO 2-loss SEC teams (SC & LSU) ranked ahead of 9-0 Louisville, 8-1 FSU, 8-1 Clemson, and 8-1 Oregon St?

I don’t know how the TV thing works but I would have to say that by looking at the match ups and their assigned time slots the best game for the nation to watch at 8pm would be Tech and NC.

Surely it stands to be more entertaining than the ND- BC game .

There reason why you people get the 1230 slot is ya’ll suck!!!!! Pure and simple. GT needs to discontinue its program. you are an embarrassement to your state.

Personally, I’d rather beat Georgie than win the rest of the league games. It would be a successful season. If the bumble bees can do both it would be a great season and a boost for next year.

OH UGA trolls… “Hey look at me! I switched two letters of two words and am insulting Georgia Tech!” But you are right ugag troll, we probably should hang it up… I mean a couple mediocre showings and a rough season must surely mean that we are an embarassment to this state. Oh, wait, dont we have two more national championships than you? Don’t we have one more recently than you? Thats actually pretty sad considering we actual have to have student athletes opposed to an amateur NFL team. Get your head out of your A** and go back to your blog… You are a pathetic human being.

I emphatically agree Freddie, you pencil necked geek (talking a little smack with the champ)! MY personal 1st choice every year is to beat Georgie, & ‘em bad, as in red headed step child bad. So, I’ve been severely disappointed a lot. But a fella gotta have goals, huh?

2 people I would ban just because I could, if I could. 1st guy’s handle says he is here just for the childish joy he derives from being insulting. That would be tuck fech. 2nd guy says the same thing every time he posts. No variations. No compelling reason to read his chit. He posts the same thing every day….every day….every day. That would be Old Dog. I would ban them every time I saw their blog handle. If I could.
