    Aug 6, 2014 3:49 PM - Eric: Hey there everyone.
    Aug 6, 2014 3:51 PM - Longestday: hi eric
    Aug 6, 2014 3:52 PM - Longestday: Eric do you know if they number the rows from bottom to top in the upper east stands (looking at row 4 in section 225)
    Aug 6, 2014 3:52 PM - Eric: bottom to top. I used to sit in 22 I think, and it was near the top.
    Aug 6, 2014 3:54 PM - Longestday: Upper east 225 row 4 or section 104/108?
    Aug 6, 2014 3:55 PM - Longestday: Brown is playing through hurt toe... hope it is not too bad
    Aug 6, 2014 3:56 PM - Eric: For me, I love the 225 area. Maybe my favorite to sit in...thats just me though.
    Aug 6, 2014 3:56 PM - Eric: Correct, he is impressing though,,and that toughness is something coaches love to see.
    Aug 6, 2014 3:58 PM - Longestday: Gamble and Green... are they just saving energy to get through camp? Hurt on the first day of pads doing thuds?
    Aug 6, 2014 3:58 PM - nod: You spoiled me wih the interviews on the front page, are more to come?
    Aug 6, 2014 4:00 PM - Eric: @Longestday Injury info is hard to come by, they dont like giving that info out. All i know is I was told yesterday that there were no major injuries.
    Aug 6, 2014 4:01 PM - Eric: @nod we did those interviews at media day...or I should say John, PowderSpringJacket88 and CuseJacket did...We hope to keep media creds and have more things in the future. We will see where things go from here.
    Aug 6, 2014 4:01 PM - Longestday: CPJ told the reporters to ask the players as they happen to be walking by at that moment...
    Aug 6, 2014 4:02 PM - Eric: Which pretty much answers that question :)
    Aug 6, 2014 4:05 PM - presjacket: Thanks for having such a great site, Eric.
    Aug 6, 2014 4:06 PM - Eric: Thanks for the props.
    Aug 6, 2014 4:08 PM - Jay Alexander: Eric, do you have a post yet in the season prediction thread? What you expect our record to be at the end of the season?
    Aug 6, 2014 4:09 PM - DSGB: Not Eric, but 9 wins is my conservative goal. I think we could get to 10 wins. Schedule and other teams with new QBs sets up well for us if we get it going as we should
    Aug 6, 2014 4:10 PM - Eric: My prediction is 8-4.
    Aug 6, 2014 4:11 PM - Jay Alexander: Agree, I think 10 wins is realistic, but it would seen our luck needs to change on some of the closer games.
    Aug 6, 2014 4:11 PM - Jay Alexander: *seem
    Aug 6, 2014 4:12 PM - Eric: yeah who knows, hope to see a great season. last few years have included some bad breaks for us.
    Aug 6, 2014 4:15 PM - nod: I'm predicting 10 wins, and we beat UGA
    Aug 6, 2014 4:15 PM - Jay Alexander: Also, just curious, what other ACC teams consistently over-sign players? Seems like as a whole, we are a little cleaner than the SEC in that area.
    Aug 6, 2014 4:16 PM - Eric: We are way better in that area...Really none that blantly just over sign every year.
    Aug 6, 2014 4:16 PM - nod: ACC oversign, Miami signed 35 about 3 years ago
    Aug 6, 2014 4:19 PM - Eric: But they didnt just blantly oversign, they had spots open.
    Aug 6, 2014 4:19 PM - Longestday: 8 and 4 seems realistic... I don't know how that Radio guy says he does not see 6 possible wins.
    Aug 6, 2014 4:20 PM - Jay Alexander: Maybe he knows something about NC State that we don't?
    Aug 6, 2014 4:22 PM - nod: NC State, lol, I think we get by Miami and Va Tech this year, then trip up against UNC or Pitt, then I'm giving Clemson the advantage
    Aug 6, 2014 4:22 PM - Jay Alexander: ...but I do think the back to back roads games at UNC and Pitt could be problematic.
    Aug 6, 2014 4:23 PM - nod: Jay - that's what I'm thinking
    Aug 6, 2014 4:23 PM - Eric: I am sick of losing to VT and Miami...really think we should beat VT.
    Aug 6, 2014 4:23 PM - nod: I'm going Saturday, anyone else?
    Aug 6, 2014 4:24 PM - Jay Alexander: I think we due against Va Tech, that I genuinely think we'll be the better team this year.
    Aug 6, 2014 4:24 PM - Eric: I agree...I really see them struggling this year.
    Aug 6, 2014 4:25 PM - nod: We blew Va Tech game last year, false starts and key INT killed us on offense
    Aug 6, 2014 4:26 PM - Eric: Wish i could make it Saturday...maybe the only open one we get.
    Aug 6, 2014 4:26 PM - Longestday: Got my season tickets... going to be a lot of flying from Texas... not going to have my wife with me so I'll be looking for people to hangout with.
    Aug 6, 2014 4:27 PM - nod: Sleeper is UNC, I liked their coach when he was at Southern Miss, I think they will be better this year
    Aug 6, 2014 4:27 PM - Jay Alexander: That's awesome, makes me feel bad that I don't buy season tix (I coach my son's fall ball team, lots of Saturday conflicts)
    Aug 6, 2014 4:28 PM - Longestday: I am grateful they don't have Ebron this year.
    Aug 6, 2014 4:29 PM - Longestday: I had a tough time making the decision. I'll see how it goes from Texas. I am going to miss living in Ga.
    Aug 6, 2014 4:29 PM - nod: Longestday, I'll be by myself also, look for me, I'll be tall 6'7 guy, skinny
    Aug 6, 2014 4:29 PM - Longestday: What section do you sit in?
    Aug 6, 2014 4:30 PM - nod: Think everone has to sit in lower east for the scrimmage
    Aug 6, 2014 4:32 PM - Longestday: oh cannot be there for scrimmage because I am traveling back from China. I thought about changing flight to a day early, but I was a day late getting here.
    Aug 6, 2014 4:32 PM - nod: China, just dig and you may end up in GA
    Aug 6, 2014 4:32 PM - Longestday: I got section 225 level 1 row 4 seat 5
    Aug 6, 2014 4:34 PM - nod: gotta head out, take care, Go Jackets, thanks Eric, really enjoy GTSwarm
    Aug 6, 2014 4:34 PM - Longestday: bye nod
    Aug 6, 2014 4:35 PM - nod: I'm not season ticket holder, member of GTSwam gave me their code, family commitments on Saturdays
    Aug 6, 2014 4:36 PM - Jay Alexander: anyone have a prediction on which A back will step up and be the Godhigh/Orwin/Roddy for this season?
    Aug 6, 2014 4:37 PM - Longestday: I watched the last two games and I saw days running style improve. He was not so far forward. He said he has practiced his running this summer.
    Aug 6, 2014 4:38 PM - Longestday: Zenon is a good runner as well and I bet he sees a lot of playing time. He got a lot of time in the spring game
    Aug 6, 2014 4:38 PM - Jay Alexander: I think Deon Hill has a big season in him
    Aug 6, 2014 4:38 PM - Longestday: Perkins and Deon are good runners and blockers. I would give the edge to Perkins on running anf the edge to deon on blocking
    Aug 6, 2014 4:39 PM - Jay Alexander: but I like Zenon as well
    Aug 6, 2014 4:39 PM - Longestday: Andrews is a wild card. I think he could be the best runner of the bunch. I am not sure where he is on blocking.
    Aug 6, 2014 4:40 PM - Jay Alexander: It will be interesting to watch that position unfold this year...seems like position to watch are the ones with little depth (defensive line) and lots of depth (A backs)
    Aug 6, 2014 4:41 PM - Longestday: I went back over the Clemson game and man did the whole team not show up on offense. Braun had a tough game and the ABacks missed assignments like crazy.
    Aug 6, 2014 4:41 PM - Jay Alexander: I felt like Days blew assignments when it counted last year.
    Aug 6, 2014 4:41 PM - Jay Alexander: Especially against Clemson.
    Aug 6, 2014 4:41 PM - Longestday: It was like they partied too hard or were to keyed up.
    Aug 6, 2014 4:42 PM - Jay Alexander: Agreed.
    Aug 6, 2014 4:43 PM - Longestday: I would say Days did the best blocking of the bunch. I have seen tons of runs sprung by him in 2013... but Clemson was a total mess up everywhere.
    Aug 6, 2014 4:43 PM - Longestday: They might have had the wrong shoes... people slipping like crazy
    Aug 6, 2014 4:43 PM - Jay Alexander: To Clemson's credit, all it took was one bad step and the A-backs were toast.
    Aug 6, 2014 4:44 PM - Longestday: They are not fooled by the counter option at all.
    Aug 6, 2014 4:45 PM - Jay Alexander: but it seemed like no one was on the same page with blocking schemes at all.

    Aug 6, 2014 at 4:45 PM - Longestday: They get to the LOS on the edges in a hurry. I wish we could have seen more speed option or mid lines. I don't know enough to know if the coach did not call because the defense was not open to it.
    Aug 6, 2014 at 4:46 PM - Longestday: I agree the blocking scheme was mixed up
    Aug 6, 2014 at 4:47 PM - Jay Alexander: Seemed like the edge rusher could get to the back field untouched every other play
    Aug 6, 2014 at 4:47 PM - Longestday: We did good against VT when we did not kill ourselves. VT was a false start nightmare a long with turnovers!
    Aug 6, 2014 at 4:48 PM - Jay Alexander: The false starts were sad
    Aug 6, 2014 at 4:48 PM - Jay Alexander: especially with the seasoned OL
    Aug 6, 2014 at 4:48 PM - Longestday: Clemson was more random with the CB blitz in 2013, which changes up blocking schemes and make it harder for the coach to pass against like 2012 .
    Aug 6, 2014 at 4:49 PM - Jay Alexander: Probably the most disappointing Va Tech loss I've watched...
    Aug 6, 2014 at 4:49 PM - Jay Alexander: Maybe Clem mixed it up just enough to keep us off balance.
    Aug 6, 2014 at 4:49 PM - Longestday: People where getting into back field with blockers running right by them. I know no more than 1 or a max of 2 (in a TO) should be unblocked at a time.
    Aug 6, 2014 at 4:50 PM - Jay Alexander: Of course we did put up some points against Clemson...but their offensive skill players killed us
    Aug 6, 2014 at 4:51 PM - Jay Alexander: That's the part where I thought we weren't all on the same page offensively
    Aug 6, 2014 at 4:51 PM - Longestday: Great passing and receiving that game for them
    Aug 6, 2014 at 4:52 PM - Jay Alexander: have to tip your hat...they made plays even when covered.
    Aug 6, 2014 at 4:52 PM - Longestday: Anyone know the status of Duke J?
    Aug 6, 2014 at 4:53 PM - Longestday: Eric... did i cause any issues when I recorded the last scrimmage?
    Aug 6, 2014 at 4:54 PM - Longestday: I do expect Chamberlain to be better in 2014
    Aug 6, 2014 at 4:59 PM - Longestday: We had a lot of down field fumbles last year... not as many due to the TO.
    Aug 6, 2014 at 5:00 PM - Longestday: Vad and Sims both had issues down field. I wonder if that a lone could change 2014?
    Aug 6, 2014 at 5:01 PM - Longestday: Anyone have any request on videos after the games this year?
    Aug 6, 2014 at 5:02 PM - Longestday: Best of the blocks? TO break downs? Do you like the 6 second vine videos or the play it once go back slow videos?
    Aug 6, 2014 at 5:14 PM - Ramblin Wrecker: I like the Vines, but for really technical details, videos might be better
    Aug 6, 2014 at 5:19 PM - danny daniel: Anybody know anything about Justin Bryan in practice? Just curious about position, progress. He is a for real project but an interesting one.
    Aug 6, 2014 at 5:24 PM - Longestday: Have not heard anything... and no one has asked any questions about him that I know of... he dad could give us an update at some point.
    Aug 6, 2014 at 5:42 PM - Longestday: anyone know travel time on Marta from the airport to the stadium?
    Aug 6, 2014 at 5:47 PM - Ramblin Wrecker: I used to make it to campus in about 30 min, but that was some years ago. Biggest factor was the wait time to get on
    Aug 6, 2014 at 5:48 PM - Longestday: wonder what the wait time in on a Saturday?
    Aug 6, 2014 at 6:03 PM - tugdog235: trains usually come every 20 minutes, but Marta's website should have the time table on Saturdays
    Aug 6, 2014 at 6:04 PM - tugdog235: I would plan for an hour travel time, but it's usually less
    Aug 6, 2014 at 6:04 PM - Eric: Bryan is at LB.
    Aug 6, 2014 at 6:19 PM - Whiskey_Clear: We are already pretty deep at LB
    Aug 6, 2014 at 6:23 PM - Eric: To be specific hes a ILB.
    Aug 6, 2014 at 6:23 PM - Eric: from what I was told
    Aug 6, 2014 at 6:54 PM - Southpaw13: Is it time for football year? I'm so ready!
    Aug 6, 2014 at 6:56 PM - Southpaw13: I'm excited to see what Devine and Griffin can do for the dive
