You can’t confuse information with insight. There’s been much speculated and said about Georgia Tech’s NFL departures (Bay-Bay, Dwyer, Derrick Morgan, Burnett), but no news from those left to carry the banner. So it was good to read OT Nick Claytor’s guest blog today. Stop it with the analysis of the analysis, let’s hear it from the players. Check it out: http://blogs.ajc.com/georgia-tech-sports/2010/01/14/special-guest-blog-from-nick-claytor-2/.
It’s an annual challenge for my alma mater to stay in the top of the FBS big leagues. GT is very deliberately a small school (13,000 undergrads) with tough academic requirements, making recruiting a real challenge. Of course, that’s why the triple option was so welcome. If you can’t beat ’em on bulk, blind ’em with science. Paul Johnson has lost some powerful weapons, but he’ll adjust, and will continue to coach players to new heights.
This fan and alum is thankful for an exciting season. I’ll watch these veterans in the NFL and mark my calendar for Sep 4.
