Toe Meets Leather, April 18…Noon!

The Georgia Tech T-Day Spring Football game kicks off at noon tomorrow.

Festivities begin at 10am and the gates open at 11am.  Football begins at noon.  Be there or be Square!

Personally I’m looking forward to seeing Shaw and Washington get alot of reps.  We all have a good idea of what Nesbitt can do and there is no reason to risk him if he’s a bit dinged up and needs to rest his shoulder.  I’ve heard enough good things about Shaw’s progress and Washington’s elusive running to think that we’ll see some good offensive output tomorrow.

I’m also VERY anxious to see Anthony Allen get some action.  Allen is a bit of a wildcard going into this season.  We all know he has serious skill as evidenced by his time at Louisville and the success he has had in our practices and scrimmages.  But I’ve yet to see him live and in action and he intrigues me greatly.

It’ll be nice to see Jerrard Tarrant back on the field in the white and gold.  Tarrant has a chance to really step in and improve our punt return game in addition to adding solid defensive secondary depth.

It’d be great to see a big crowd for the game tomorrow.  I know many of my friends are looking forward to getting down to campus with family and friends a bit early so they can tailgate and enjoy a sunny afternoon getting a taste of the upcoming Fall.

I’ll be down there with my littlest daughter.  It will be her first trip down to campus with daddy.  Its a rite of passage that started with her older sister and which I can’t wait to continue.

See everyone tomorrow!

Go Jackets!

Looking forward to watching us beat ourselves.

In all seriousness, though, I really want to see what Washington can do with the offense.

If Jerrand is as good as we thought he was last year he should be a great addition. And, Shaw, please hang on to the ball, you have great potential, but you can’t keep putting it on the ground.

Anybody know if PJ is calling the plays or letting the assistants do it?

Sounds like you were a little late to the party, Melinda. The game ended just after 2.

Tech doesn’t have an OC, Coach Johnson calls all the plays on offense. In addition, he was on the field behind the offense for the entire game today.
