When we asked UGA fans to report back to us on Twitter from their G-Day game, we got lots of feedback. And of course when we asked Tech fans to do the same, we had no worries that we’d get some fine Twitter-based observations from the Yellow Jackets fan base.
Tech fan Jeff Baltes, who attends all Jackets home games and takes in 2-3 road games a season, told us last week that he was headed to the T-Day game to “take notes and report back.” Monday morning, as promised, Jeff hit us up on Twitter with his carefully considered, well thought-out feedback — both the positives and negatives — from Georgia Tech’s spring game where, he notes, “a ton of ex-players in attendance and they were all excited about this upcoming season.”
Here are some things this self-described Jackets superfan took away from Saturday’s T-Day game.
“Dwyer and Burnett are studs. I felt the D-line outplayed the O-line which is encouraging considering how much we lost in the D-Line.”
“Too many fumbles! Also, Nesbitt did not play but after attending a couple of practices, he is the for sure #1.”
“Anthony Allen is the real deal. We will be loaded at B-Back. Marcus Wright is quick and impressive giving us more depth at A-back.”
“Kicking game was terrible. I am really concerned about that going into this season. Embry Peeples had a beautiful 60+ yard run! Awesome!”
“TJ Barnes is a man among boys, he will be a stud sooner rather than later. He was tearing up the o-line. Look out for Robert Hall too!”
And Jeff poses a question for his fellow Jackets fans out there: Does QB Jaybo Shaw keep the ball too much instead of pitching?
“I feel that if Jaybo is under center and we are inside the five, he will be the one scoring the TD and last year he got hurt cause of this,” Jeff writes on Twitter.
WHAT’S YOUR TAKE ON T-DAY? Tech fans, share your thoughts on Saturday’s T-Day game here. If you were there, tell us about your experience On The Flats. And if you have a thought on Jeff’s QB question, we’d like to hear about that, too.
