    Wouldn't that be 8 of 10 games.
    That Duke matchup is horrible for them.
    Miami vs Louisville is an interesting good match up
    LOL Marshall being favored over Maryland
    Which V Tech team shows up
    Don't see UNC being favored
    Bowling Green vs Pitt is a dogg
    Tech gonna have it's hand full with it's match up.

    11 includes the GT game. I probably should have just combined the posts.

    Can't say I disagree with a whole lot of those. The ACC is playing some underrated teams. As of right now, I say FSU, GT, and BC all win. Duke loses. All the rest are toss up for me

    I would take GT and the points. They are basically saying Ole Miss > UGAy

    Sort of. We were actually at home vs. UGA as 3 pt underdogs. If we were playing Ole Miss at home we'd get roughly 3 points, effectively making the game a pick 'em.

    I haven't watched Ole Miss that much this year; from the little I've seen I would not be able to definitively say they are better or worse than UGA. There are a ton of teams that are just 'above average' with little separation. Our performance this year puts us in that category along with the aforementioned "vaunted" SEC teams.

    Ole Miss is a gunna kill us
    Yellow Jacket bowls under CPJ suck
    His offense gets shut down, period
    That goodness our defense & special teams score sometimes--including last year when our punt return squad got the ball to USC's 1 yard line where it only took us 2 downs to just barely make it to the goal line
    Georgia Tech 7
    Ole Miss 28

    You're just a ray of sunshine, aren't you? Miss that game last year, where they played their tails off and beat a better team than the Ole Miss team they're playing this year?

    Just shooten straight
    Its not just a matter of how hard a team plays, a lot more than that determines who wins
    My guess would be that under CPJ the Georgia Tech offense has averaged about 13 points per bowl game

    It's about 14.5, but it's skewed WAY down by the LSU debacle. I think they turned a corner last year. Sometimes it's more than a talent issue. I think there have been some changes in bowl game prep since CPJ arrived. Besides, idk WHAT you've seen from Ole Miss that makes you think they're just gonna roll us, other than the conference name on their helmet. And I'd be more than happy to help dispel that myth for you...

    I would be willing to wager we score more than 7 on offense.

    But an average includes both the high end and low end production
    Ole Miss has lost to the best teams in the country in Auburn, Alabama, Missouri, Texas A&M and they beat LSU & Texas

    Could happen if Ole Miss puts in its second string defense in the 4th quarter, as that's when we score on teams that have us beaten
    It's just plain recent history that supports such

    That was a bad loss, but the rivalry games can do that, especially when they are on the road--its just that we can't beat our rival
    I doubt that there is any other team in the country that has lost to 4 stronger teams (#2, #3, #8, #21) than that of Ole Miss
    Ole Miss also beat #14 & #29
