Georgia Tech Wins 41-14, Creates False Hope

Speaking of Fantasy Football,

If you would like to sign up for the Peach Pundit College Pick’em or Pro Pick’em, follow the links here.

For those who are registered or wish to, picks on the college game are due by 11:55am, Saturday.  You have until next Thursday evening to pick the Pros.

As for the now completed Fantasy Football Draft, I still feel confident that my early draft of Rashard Mendenhall will be vindicated.   And this is the solid voice of the team that didn’t finish in the very last place last season.

Consider this a Peach Pundit Sports Open Thread.

  1. How can you, on this night of nights, when Hope and Change personified walks among us, talk about false hope?

    With Hope and Change sweeping over our once great nation Tech will never lose again. No one will ever lose again.

    National Championships For All!

    You forgot to add that you won’t have to pay for the National Championships. Those unidentified “rich people” will, not us just, “working people”.

    We won without our start quarterback! ! Rumor has it Icarus paid of the NCAA committee out of fear of UC taking on Georgia.

    Cincinnati 40, E. Kentucky 7

    (AP) – Dustin Grutza made Cincinnati’s quarterback transition go smoothly Thursday night, throwing for three touchdowns and running for another in a 40-7 victory over Eastern Kentucky that eased the Bearcats’ biggest concern – at least for now.
    They didn’t miss Ben Mauk on this night.
    A few hours after Mauk appealed to an NCAA committee for another season of eligibility, his backup had a career night. Grutza set a career high with his three touchdown passes in the first half, helping Cincinnati (1-0) get off to a fast start.
    The senior threw touchdown passes 15 and 47 yards to Mardy Gilyard, who had never caught more than one in a game. The last one came off the same type of play that Mauk ran so well last year, a play-action rollout that let Gilyard get behind the coverage.
    Eastern Kentucky (0-1), the defending Ohio Valley Conference champs, had trouble against a defense that was one of the nation’s best last season. The Bearcats were missing tackle Terrill Byrd, suspended for the opener because of a marijuana citation.
    Allan Holland, the OVC’s offensive player of the year last season, was 12-of-17 for 141 yards, including a 61-yard touchdown pass to Cody Watts after the Colonels trailed 40-0. Sophomore running back Aaron Bradley hurt his right knee in the first half and didn’t return.
    Grutza was the starting quarterback in 2006, but lost his job late that season and never got it back. Mauk led the Bearcats to 10 wins and a No. 17 final ranking last year, then set about trying to gain one more season of eligibility. The NCAA has turned down his appeals four times so far.
    Mauk talked to its reinstatement committee by phone on Thursday afternoon, his last chance for a reversal. Mauk, a graduate student, was on the sideline in jeans and a gray football T-shirt.
