• Georgia Tech Fans: Remember Kansas

    This Tulane game reminds me a lot of the 2010 Kansas game. Georgia Tech venturing quite a few miles to the west, early in the season, against an inferior opponent. If I recall, GT was favored by about the same amount of points over Kansas as they are now over Tulane.

    That 2010 Georgia Tech team came into the season with significantly higher expectations than this year's edition and had the great Josh Nesbitt at QB leading the team, not a newbie QB who is still trying to get his legs under him.

    We all know what happened in that game and the head scratcher is that the Yellow Jackets absolutely annihilated Kansas at Bobby Dodd Stadium the following season.

    Don't be surprised if this Tulane game is a dogfight.

      Many dont like to hear this so be it but this is my take only.......with Dodd when we played a game I though we had better than fifty percent chance to win since we wouldnt be making many mistakes and the game would be close and of course........we had Dodd.Now its just tuff to call who will do what....Woffard almost kicked our butts yet we will probably go to Tulane and wreck havok on the greenies.Seems when we are supposed to win we get into hot water early and when the odds are against us we play well........modern day football I guess but it confuses me at times.

      I don't need to be reminded of the Kansas game. I have been saying since May or June that this might be a tough game. Road game, new stadium being dedicated, etc. But Tulane seems to be a very poor team. Let's just hope we get our stuff together and take care of business. The game with VPI has already taken on added importance with Miami's loss.

      I expect it to be a tough game. I just don't see the talent level for us to dominate Tulane. I think PJ tries for a quick score. He wants to take the crowd at the game. I was at the road game in Murfreesboro in 2011. The crowd was pumped. Tech scored on the first play and the wind went out of the stadium. If Tulane keeps it close at the half, they can win.
