    Our Season starts September 20

    Thank goodness there will be some good games to start the season off immediately. For us I think we have to continue "fall camp" until our trip to Blacksburg. I really can't get too enthused about Wofford. Unless disaster strikes, I doubt we will know much more about our team Monday that we do now. Hopefully we can get a lot of youngsters on to the field, build some depth and experience and head for New Orleans healthy. THWG!

    Agreed. I'm glad JT is getting 3 cupcakes to prepare for the first real defense that we'll face. I hope he will have thrown at least 50 pass attempts by the time we head to Blacksburg. You know VT will shut down the TO as usual so we'll have to wing it to beat those jackasses.

    Wofford should be over by the end of the 1st qtr. Anyone who fears Tulane isn't a real Tech fan and has abysmally-low standards for our program and can go to hell.

    And Ga Southern? LMAO. That one should be over by the 1st qtr too. Anyone who fears Ga Southern is a mutt fan and hates Ga Tech.

    A bunch of people wine about us lining up cup cakes at the beginning of the season crying about our SOS and perception nationwide, but I'm a big fan of this approach to build confidence and cohesiveness with the team. I think our realistic goal should be the ACCCG. We should not be worried about strength of schedule because the likelyhood of us ever being considerred for the playoffs is zero IMO - not dissing the team, just trying to be practical and realistic. SOS may play a role in what bowl we go to, but the bowl choice is of secondary importance IMHO.

    I guess I'm saying that we should strive to be one of the biggest fish in our small ACC pond, instead of dreaming about being king of the ocean. Use three cupcakes to get up to playing rythm so we can do well against our ACC counterparts and 'dem dawgs should be job #1. This will increase our odds of making the ACCCG and a middle tier bowl, and possibly have a shot at winning the bowl game. I think thats resonable: not overly optimistic or defeatist.

    Increasing SOS with more high tier opponents, especially early in the season, will mess up our "pre-season" tune up time and reduce our probability of success, again IMHO.

    Go JACKETS! THWG!

    Yes, almost to the day that the fall season begins. Football is not a summer sport except for, say, practice. It is to be played in the fall.

    Maybe I don't fear Tulane, but I am concerned. We are notorious for being slow starters. This is the first game in their long awaited new stadium. Our team has shown that we can lay an egg at anytime, and we have dismissed or suspended more than a handful of young men who have taken their scholarships but not respected the team or the Institute. We are taking a collection of 18 to 22 year olds to New Orleans and asking them to stay focused on a team every one of them believes can't carry his jock strap. I have six (or maybe seven) words for you : Furman, Duke, Navy, MTSU, Kansas, Gardner-Webb.

    Very, very few teams will ever be in the playoffs beyond the usual suspects, so not concerned about that. Therefore SOS does not really concern me.

    Focusing on beating uga as priority one is what matters. Being capable of that makes being very competitive in the ACC a given.

    And most would refuse to call you a competent football analyst.
