    Defense is now totally optional.

    Here I was thinking we were one of the worst defensive teams playing out there but the more I watch the more I see that we are not alone. What the hell has happened to defensive football? You know we could really distinguish ourselves if we could just improve a little bit. We seem to be...

    Are we ready for the heat?

    Forecast is 83 degrees, 85% humidity and 60% chance of thunderstorms. That actually might be a break for us. I am expecting a temperature in the 90's with humidity in the 90% area and no rain. I hope we get the actual forecast but think we will get what I expect. If so, it will come down to...

    Reflections on the National Championship Game

    As I sit here awaiting the kickoff of the Championship, my mind is flooded with the memories of these 2 teams and our relationship with both. For many many years Clemson was the patsy we made come down to Atlanta to take their annual butt whippin. All they got was a nice pay check and a long...

    Tech great Joe Auer has passed away

    I just saw on the USA Today website, that former Tech star Joe Auer passed away at the age of 77 yesterday. Old number 22 was one of my boyhood heroes and was an offensive force in his day on the flats. Rest in Peace Joe! Go Jackets!

    Georgia Tech Bowl Projections

    Right now SI has us projected in the Bad Boy Mowers Gasparilla Bowl 12/20 in Tampa vs. Memphis. If we can beat Virginia we probably upgrade to the Military Bowl vs. Cincinnati in Annapolis on New Years Eve. If we beat Georgia, we are probably going to Jacksonville and play in the Gator vs...

    What to do with Bruce Swilling?

    I don't understand what is going on with BJS. He looked to be set to be a starting inside linebacker at the end of last year. I know he injured his self by falling off a motor scooter but he should be healed up by now but is getting very little playing time. Perhaps we don't need him at...

    Closing the deal . . .

    ... how do we develop that trait? I was watching the Falcon game yesterday and was struck with how similar they are to the Yellow Jackets. They just can not close the deal when the game is on the line. Good teams know how to get that done and other teams, well they end up with a lot of...

    10 More Games, Time to Sack Up!

    Well it don't matter what we think. We have 10 more ball games to play in 2018 regardless. Just got to flush this one and move on. Being negative will only make things worse. Let's try to find the positives, work on developing what we have and look for improvement as the year goes along...

    Total news blackout . . .

    . . . very strange following scrimmage on Friday. I have not seen this in the past. Leads me to think that something occurred that Coach wants to keep secret. I have not seen any reports in the AJC or any other media outlets or websites about the scrimmage. I see Kelly has one up but it...

    2018 Offensive unit projections

    The potential Offensive depth chart for 2018 looks pretty good. I thought I would share my prospective on this to give us something to discuss during this slow period for GT football. Of course the main position for any football team is the QB position. We have some experience there but we...

    Peach County Jobbed in State Championship Game

    I know a lot of folks did not watch this game but one of our recruits, a linebacker named Jackson plays for Peach County and he had a hell of a game. Peach County scored what would have been a go ahead touchdown on a pass that was caught about the 4 yard line. The defender stretched out and...

    Quality Losses

    Well 2 of our 4 losses have come to the number 2 team in the nation, Clemson and the number 3 team in the nation Miami. I don't know what the hell happened against Tennessee and Virginia. Go Jackets!

    Justin Fuente gave us that one!

    I am grateful that he did but if I were a Hokie fan, I would be spitting nails over the way he let the last VT drive play out. Third and one inside our 30 yard line with almost 2 minutes left in the game and he throws a pass to get the first down. Incomplete, and not even close really. Now he...

    Number 23 Texas?

    Wow the media darling Tom Herman dissappoints in opener. You know Austin, Texas has become such a p-whipped liberal bastion that I think their once testosterone fueled bad *** football team have become sissy men. Go Jackets!

    Matthew Jordan out for rest of spring.

    Apparently a non football related foot injury. May open the door for one of the other competitors for the starting QB job. Go Jackets!
