Gt_medium One of our rivals is giving another the stink-eye right now....and not because they play each other in the first game of the season, either.

Gt_medium The same service that yesterday had georgia picked to finish second in the SEC East this fall has picked Georgia Tech to finish fourth ($) in the Coastal this fall, behind Miami, Virginia Tech, and UNC. The service gives Clemson a 24% chance of winning the conference, Florida State an 18% chance, and Miami a 16% chance -- Georgia Tech has an 8% chance of winning, putting them at 6th out of 14 according to this service.
