After a long slow summer, its finally the last week before Toe Meets Leather against Jacksonville State this coming Saturday. I am sure that office productivity across the country will fall steeply over the next five days. I know I am personally more than a bit distracted and anxious to get that first game under our belts and see how the offense and defense have progressed or changed during practice.
So…beginning this week I will be posting at least two fan blogs per week. I will be focusing on things from a “fan” perspective. Doug does a great job with the official GT beat blog and the producers at the AJC.com want the various sports fan blogs to focus on fan topics of interest and discussion. So I will do my best to inject my personal “fan” perspective and thoughts on the program and the season as it unfolds. My goal will not be to overlap or rehash or scoop Doug as a news source. He’s the paid writer with the press credentials…not I.
Before we get started, I’ll just lay out one request or rule…whichever way you want to take it…
Treat your fellow Tech fans and alums with respect and maturity when you encounter them in the AJC.com blogs. We’re all on the same team and have plenty of rivals and less than friendly adversaries that should be readily available once the season begins.
Over the next couple of days I’ll post my expectations and concerns regarding the offense and defense coming out of Fall practice. And then before we know it…the season will be upon us!
The two links below should help get us all through the week…
