Can the Jackets finally win in Charlottesville

October 21, 2009

Big win last Saturday.  Georgia Tech beat a top 5 opponent at home for the first time since 1962 when we beat Alabama and a QB named Joe Namath.  I’m trying to figure out if it seems longer if you know who Joe Namath is or if you don’t.  Who cares.  Forty seven years is […]

Two Techs Collide

October 15, 2009

Tech secured another victory last week in a late show against the Seminoles.  The offense was impressive in scoring 49 points.  QB Josh Nesbitt made an incredible play by getting the ball back from an FSU defensive player.  It was easily the play of the game.  It’s hard to describe Tech’s first half defense because […]

October 6, 2009

Jackets take on the Tarheels

September 24, 2009

Well, the 2009 GT Football honeymoon ended last Thursday.  Miami punched us early and often right in the mouth. On offense we struggled with downfield blocks.  On defense we struggled to stay within five yards of their receivers.  The good news is that Coach Johnson says that we are changing defensive schemes.  Hopefully the new […]

Jackets at The "U"

September 16, 2009

 Last week: Great win for the Jackets last Thursday night.  It’s rare that a team has a 24 point lead and yet has to rally to win.  Hopefully there was a lesson learned somewhere in the locker room.  I’m sure that Coach Johnson took care of it.   This week: Tech has another Thursday night […]
