    Nice coaching, too! Ha, ha. Tech’s got the best receiver in the country and they don’t throw to him when the going gets tough. Go for 3, Tech!

  2. The Busdriver says:

    Give Tech credit for having the guts to schedule an opener against a team more talented than UGA’s strawman, er, “opponent”–Western Kentucky Sisters of the Mercy.

    No, I’m not a Tech alumnus. Just college fan who’d like to see more “big time” football programs schedule more difficult non-conference games, like UM-ND, OSU-TX, Miami-FSU, ND-PSU, and Nebraska vs. USC. Stop hiding behind Division 1-AA programs.

    Heck of a battle? Which game were you watching Jeff?

    It was once again a classic example of bad coaching by Gailey. I have never seen a college coach that is worse about adjusting a game play during a game. Tech showed that it had the athletes and talent to beat Notre Dame; they just didn’t have the coaching.

    Busdriver –

    I never knew you were a Tech fan, which is more than a little disturbing.

    Regardless of the scheduling, you are still supporting a school with males in their flag line. In fact, the “flag boy” is a a long-standing Tech tradition.

    Which reminds me of an old Lewis Grizzard joke…

    I’m absolutely not a Tech fan. I was merely showing Tech some love for scheduling a tough non-conference contest.

    Few schools are willing to add tough games to their schedule. You’ve got Texas-OSU on Saturday night, and then OSU starts a home and away series with Southern Cal next year, and with University of Miami two years after that. Nebraska has put together a tough non-conference schedule. Other traditional powers are adding big games to their pre-conference schedule–it’s just a shame some “big time” football programs don’t have the sack to do that. They’d rather go barreling into the conference schedule fresh of a trouncing of Western Carolina (that’s next year’s punching bag; I’m aware Western Kentucky was this year’s).

    Tech has one hell of a team this year.

    Georgia has alot of depth in just about every position also though.

    November 25th is going to be a damn good game in Athens.

    Before we slam UGA for WKY, lets look at the next team for both schools: South Carolina and the Evil Genius in Columbia for UGA. And for Tech? Either Samford or Troy St, cant remember which but they are the next two teams on their schedule.

    What you Techies and sodomites from Auburn, UT, FLA and beyond should be worried about is Matt Stafford getting playing time and leading two touchdown drives. While Joe T showed very little, Matt is clearly the QB of the near future for UGA. And with the defense GA has, get ready for New Orleans or beyond.

    As soon as Tech gets a coach with a pair, their talent will start to show. That was the difference in the game; Gailey punts on 4th and 1, Weis never hesitates to go for it. Too bad for Calvin Johnson.

    Yea Bill, UGA played a lower class team first week, but now Tech spends the next two weeks playing patsies…difference is there is a chance for the patsy teams to beat Tech.

    Rugby-fan,
    Yes Miami and FSU are in the same conference but they are in different divisions which mean they don’t have to play each other every year and risk a National Championship over it, but they do.
    Sure Tech has Samford and Troy next but UGAs schedule of Vandy, UAB, Miss. St, Kentucky, and W. Kentucky is no better. Tech has taken a big risk by scheduling big games and UGA should do the same. More and more schools are doing it. To be the best you have to beat the best.

    I feel for Tech’s players. They are talented, and they have to face ridicule because of their coach.

    Tech’s offense in the first half was good, but ole Chan put the headphones on in the second half and destroyed any momentum they could have built. I wonder when he will learn that his play-calling sucks.

    Tech’s defense looked good the whole game, and that will be their biggest benefit all season. Their only real mistake was allowing Quinn into the end zone at the end of the first half, but it was a big one.

    I hope Tech’s new AD will show some courage and punt Gailey in January. They’d better be working on the QB slot, too. If Calvin Johnson stays for his senior year, somebody’s got to be able to find him.

    In fairness, I gotta give kudos to Darius Walker. The kid from Buford is looking really good. We’ll probably be seeing strong rushing yardage from him for many years to come.

  11. ColinATL says:

    Man, Chan blew chunks. He’s not even interesting to watch. The TV people constantly showed ND’s coach who at least showed he had a pulse. Of course, that could also be because ABC loves to lob big wet sloppy kisses at the Irish.

    But when Chan opted to punt with the 4th & 1 just screaming for a play, I knew it was over… sigh
