UVA & Homecoming
The Jackets and Hoos will kick off at 3:30pm EST this coming Saturday, as Tech celebrates its 2010 Homecoming.
Hopefully we’ll see a return of Paul Johnson’s offense to the Flats right along with students, fans, and alumni from across the nation.
Details on Homecoming can be found here…Forever Bold in White & Gold.
If you are able, the Ramblin’ Reck parade is highly recommended:
Ramblin’ Reck Parade
A tradition that began in 1932, the Ramblin’ Reck Parade rolls on! Be there to root for your favorite contraption and see how many make it to the finish line. Hosted by the Reck Club.
Date: October 9
Time: 8 a.m.
Location: Fowler Street
Spreading the Ball Around
On the last game winning drive against Wake Forest, Joshua Nesbitt completed passes to Tyler Melton, Roddy Jones, Stephen Hill, Orwin Smith, and Corey Earls.
That’s right…passes to five different guys in one drive.
And if you include the TD pass in the preceding drive to Embry Peeples you’re talking about passes to six different players in Tech’s last two scoring drives.
Its a curious coincidence that an ability to complete passes to a variety of targets resulted in 18 fourth quarter points and a win.
It’ll be interesting to see if Nesbitt will continue to spread the ball around…and if the receivers will continue to make the catches…

UGA Adding Engineering Majors?
The AJC recently ran a very interesting article about UGA’s desire to add engineering majors.
There’s really not alot to say about this that isn’t already spelled out in the article itself:
“I grew up close to Atlanta, but I’m not a city boy,” the Lilburn native said. “Georgia Tech has such a heavy workload. It’s not that I wanted an easier option, but I wanted a life outside of studying. I wanted to be at UGA. “
And also this little nugget…
Adams wrote allowing UGA to expand its engineering degrees would give students more options and keep in the state those who can’t get into Tech.
Of course, allowing UGA to add engineering degree programs might open the door for Tech to add things like Consumer Foods, Fashion Merchandising, Film Studies, Furnishings and Interiors, Magazines, and Recreation and Leisure Studies…just to name a few.
UGA, of course, would fight tooth and nail to prevent Tech from adding any new majors that overlapped with their domains.
You can’t really blame them…just look at how well our business school and MBA programs are doing these days…
