No. 48 Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets season preview

Georgia Tech has enjoyed a nice run of success under head coach Paul Johnson, going to a bowl game in each of his six seasons and making three appearances in the ACC Championship Game. In 2014, the Yellow Jackets will once again be hoping to stake their flag atop a jumbled Coastal Division and play in the conference title game. Sophomore Justin Thomas will take over at quarterback...

Know Your Enemy: Georgia Tech

Pitt heads down to the home of Coca Cola and a Delta hub, Atlanta, to face Georgia Tech (5-3, 4-2 ACC) in a battle for ACC mediocrity. This is actually a huge game for both teams because it’s needed for bowl eligibility. Georgia Tech has a tougher finish to the season than Pitt because if they lose, they’ll need to upset Clemson or Georgia to be bowl eligible. They have an easy...

Georgia Tech looks to improve on defense

It's always a good bet that Georgia Tech will put up outlandish rushing statistics, but if the Yellow Jackets are going to return to relevance, their defense must stop giving up similarly absurd numbers beginning Saturday against Elon. The Phoenix offer the first chance for new defensive coordinator Ted Roof - a linebacker in Georgia Tech's ''Black Watch''...

The Pain and Agony of the Coastal Division

I find myself looking at UNC's 2-2 record so far and feeling pretty disappointed. Which is odd, as I have maintained all through the offseason that no one really had any idea how Carolina was going to perform this season, myself included. I eventually set the benchmark for success at 8-4, but loaded it with caveats. Both the offense and defense would be new, and anything was...

The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets fall to UGA

First off let me congratulate the Dawgs on their win in this year’s version of clean old fashioned hate.  As part of a bet I have every year with the UGA correspondent on the site, who really does a great job covering his team, the winner had to say something nice about their opponent.  I wish UGA the best in their upcoming SEC Championship Game this Saturday at the dome against...

Football. All Business -- And, Some Late Nervousness

Tevin Washington was on occasions superb, Jemea Thomas' fourth-quarter interception was large, and Embry Peeples was everywhere Saturday at Duke.Really, though, individual performances aside . . . Georgia Tech moved to 8-3 on the back of a play call that prompts sweating and head scratching.Then again, this is the way head coach Paul Johnson goes about his business.

Ga. Tech Insider: Jackets, Hokies in familiar spot

The ACC's Coastal Division always comes down to Georgia Tech-Virginia Tech. In the six years since divisional play began, the winner of this game has taken the division and played for the conference championship. The Hokies have won four of six, including 28-21 last year in Blacksburg, Va. Thursday's game again will decide the Coastal, assuming Virginia loses one of its...

Kelly on Georgia Tech DB Jemea Thomas

Greetings- This is going to be brief. I’ve got to get a bit of stuff done because we’ve got early deadlines due to election coverage and I went to a news conference at Georgia Tech this morning for the unveiling of the logo for the 2013 Final Four, attended by NCAA president Mark Emmert, Mayor Kasim Reed, Tech president G.P. “Bud” Peterson and others. A lot of niceties said...

Thumbs-up for Georgia Tech special teams

Greetings- Funny the difference a week makes and some kudos to BigTimeTechFan, who last Monday predicted “Yellow Jackets in a blowout.” He was a little more on the ball than Dawgfan, who prophesied that “CLAMPSUN WILL DESTROY THAT STUPID YOUTH FOOTBALL OFFENSE.” A couple thoughts and I’ve got to get moving. 1. After taking a lot of heat, special teams gets a pretty big...
