This is a discussion on 2013 Schedule within the Georgia Tech Football forums, part of the Georgia Tech Sports Message Boards category; When we add Pitt to our schedule next year, who do we drop from playing?...
When we add Pitt to our schedule next year, who do we drop from playing?
I hope it is somebody like, say, Presbyterian. We need to step up and step out with our scheduling to get any kind of national attention. Win or lose, let's play the best. Not that Pitt is.
Alabama has 3 weak out of conference teams this year (just like they do every year) compared to 2 for us
Maybe drop BYU next year?
I would rather drop Clemson from the schedule every year and put them in the rotation like every other team in their division
But yeah, BYU or equivalent difficulty teams... probably Middle Tennessee State will get dropped or other minor FBS team... The FCS game will prob stay as a warmup
If Pitt picks up Penn State players, then we are going to have tough schedules from here on out
With clemson & uga as 2 of our 3 "non-conference" games every year (even though clemson is in our conference), then that only leaves 1 remaining team for us to play and if its BYU, then we will have one of the hardest schedules in college football
BYU ain't no pushover.
Concerning BYU, as reported back in April:
Georgia Tech has canceled their 2014 and 2017 football games against BYU, FBSchedules.com has verified through documents obtained from the Georgia Tech Athletic Association.
Georgia Tech and BYU were scheduled to play in Atlanta on Oct. 11, 2014 and in Provo on Oct. 14, 2017 as part of a four-game, home-and-home contract signed in October 2010.
The two schools will still play the first half of the agreement which begins on Oct. 27, 2012 at Georgia Tech. The series will now conclude on Oct. 12, 2013 at BYU.
Georgia Tech cancels 2014 & 2017 Football Games vs. BYU
Would a big time strenght of schedule number help us out significantly, even though we would certainly be feelin the pain because of it?
Go Jackets! THWG!
