    Week 3 Georgia Tech vs Syracuse Kickoff Set for 12pm ET

    I've always kind of preferred road games to be a bit earlier. I'm disappointed I can't go - God knows how long it'll be before we play Syracuse away again - but I think this is good overall.

    Swarm Book Club

    I am reading The Autobiography of Malcolm X right now. It's a very good read so far. I've never been much for Sci-Fi, but I did love what I read of the Foundation series. For those of you interested in history, I read the three part biography on Teddy Roosevelt by Edmund Morris. Probably the...

    TStan Give Some Clarification

    To be fair, I think averages are difficult. Our schedule is significantly more difficult than it was in the mid-2000s, and the landscape of college football has become significantly more difficult to compete in. Had we hired PJ in 2002 vs. 2007, I think we probably go 50/50 with UGA in the...

    TStan Give Some Clarification

    The email made me feel better about our direction under T-Stan. I think the fact that GTAA saw this chatter and responded is a good thing. My only worry is about Satterfield. I just feel that he would have been a homerun hire for us. It would be a shame if we didn't even speak to him.

    Paul Johnson to retire

    So many great memories: The Kick and the Pick, The Miracles on Techwood and North Avenue, The End of the Drought, The Lightning Game in Tallahassee. I'm a big fan of traditional option offenses, so I selfishly hope we hire Jeff Monken. Would also love Scott Satterfield at App State.

    Old Tech memorabilia

    I used to go to Collinsville Trade Day all the time. My family had a small cabin on Weiss Lake and we'd drive up on Saturday mornings. Never found any GT memorabilia, so you got lucky!

    -26 against bowling green....?

    Sorry I haven't responded until now. It's a great point and definitely the key to us pulling out a winning season. I certainly think we can. I'm hoping that a win @Louisville will the the road monkey off our collective back.

    -26 against bowling green....?

    BG is not good. The line is about right. I know you guys are all about to jump off a cliff, but VT just lost to Old Dominion and Louisville just got completely destroyed by Virginia. There are opportunities for wins on our schedule.

    Writer believes there's a chance Paul Johnson steps away after season?

    Honestly, as long as nothing drastic happens in the next few years, I'd probably prefer Monken as our next HC.

    all signed players from 2008-2015:

    Presenting a data-driven argument to a bunch of Tech fans without presenting the actual breakdown of the data (i.e. a table showing the player with their associated ranking) is not going to end well...

    Preseason Depth Chart

    Looks like a pretty strong 2-deep, honestly. We're weakest at WR and DB, in my opinion. Hopefully we'll be able to get pressure on the QB more consistently. We may also see a return to 2016 tactics and throw to ABs more often.

    Top 5 Tech games you have seen of all time

    I'll only include games I saw in-person... which means I have to leave out uga '14 and '16. For what it's worth, I didn't really start following GT football until my freshman year of 2004. 1. GT @ UGA (2008) - Broke the streak. The most incredible game I've ever seen. We had no chance at...

    Special Teams as we end year. BOTH WAYS COVERAGE AND RETURNS

    Solution: Kick the ball out of bounds on every kickoff. I'd gladly give the opponent the 35 on every possession. Aim for the sideline on every punt. On returns, never return the ball from the end zone. Fair catch 90% of punts (We're already kind of doing this). When you're struggling in...

    35-10 GT. Defense is stout and gives us some short fields for a change.
