    Pretty good look.

    Off top of my head, 4 of those 6 seem to be HUGE!

    We should, by now, have had a kicker.

    And it seems like every preseason we lose at least 1 OL to injury.

    Yes we are entering the fall (again) with major question marks. It just seems we never make any progress during the off seasons, always having major issues to sort out in August. Hell, how many times has the starting quarterback not played in the spring game? I can think of four and there might be more. There is very little building upon the previous season's foundation. We are always "young" even tho there were 70 players coming back from last year. I realize this is a fluff article in the AJC, but it is not fiction. We regress from January to August every year.

    Yep, we lose a lot of guys in off-season (this yr we actually got 2 transfers in-the ole Ms OL and the Safety from Wofford who may start)
    btw- count on losing several DEF guys esp this off-season ,as the DEF gets set

    Should be a lot of competition for positions which is always a good thing. Does the freshman rule help or hurt GT compared to other teams? May help, GT will have a little more depth. The football factory teams won't need to play most of their freshmen.

    With the new redshirt rule, a lot of freshmen on a lot of teams will get playing time, Georgia Tech included. But will that make us better?

    I think it will give GT some extra bodies against the better teams. Against UGA for example.. GT may need the extra freshmen for depth. UGA won't need them cause they already have depth with their returning players and the few freshmen they play.

    If only that were true...

    See Duke and mutts, 2017. He kept TQ in long after those games had been decided even though we were still just running base-offense, QB Keepers most of the time. Why not play Lucas the entire 4th qtrs of both games?

    I feel bad for Lucas Johnson - he'll likely only get about a year's worth of actual playing time, having to sit behind possibly the worst-throwing QB CPJ has had at GT. Given the higher risks for QB injuries in our QB-Keeper-heavy offense, it's asinine to not develop the backups better. They're needed for a game or 2 almost every year.
