Four members of the 2015 signing class are set to enroll early at Tech in the near future, marking the second consecutive season in which four players began their Georgia Tech careers with early enrollment. These four players -- offensive lineman Will Bryan, defensive tackle Kyle Cerge-Henderson, presumed B-Back Quaide Weimerskirch, and wide receiver Harland Howell -- are all fantastic athletes who could have a big impact during their first season on the Flats. Even if a number of them redshirt, you really can't overlook the impact which they've already had, especially Henderson. I tip my hat to him for all of the refreshing energy he has brought from the time he committed and also because he has been working as hard as anyone trying to get fellow Tech targets to join to program. I don't know about you, but I really appreciate when someone starts making a positive impact like that from day one. People like Henderson are the reason why 2014 was so successful and also why the future is so bright for Tech football.
Georgia Tech women's basketball doesn't get nearly enough love given all the success it has had in recent seasons, but when something as special as this happens you can't overlook it -- head coach MaChelle Joseph became the winningest coach in Georgia Tech history when she won her 224th game as a Yellow Jacket. The win, which came against the rival Clemson Tigers, gives Joseph a career 224-139 record at Tech (62% winning percentage) over 12 seasons on the Flats. Congratulations to MaChelle Joseph, one of the Institute's finest!
Former Duke offensive coordinator Kurt Roper, who finally got out of our hair when he accepted the offensive coordinator job at Florida this season, could land right back on Tech's schedule as soon as this season -- he is interviewing to replace Mike Bobo at Georgia. The former Blue Devil assistant has had some fantastic success working with quarterbacks, and it just so happens that Georgia Tech had some problems stopping quarterbacks in 2014. Can you see why this might be a reason for concern? Signal caller is expected to be somewhat of a weakness for the dwags this season, and I would be happy for it to stay that way for quite some time.
I've been so wrapped up in Orange Bowl coverage lately that I have done you all a disservice by failing to link to a single article about the upcoming championship game between Oregon and Ohio State. The game, which will be the first championship played with the new playoff format, has the potential to be a fantastic matchup as Urban Meyer and quarterback Cardale Jones take on Marcus Mariota's Ducks. I personally have my money on Ohio State simply because I thought that Alabama was the best team in the nation before they lost, but from an ACC perspective we should probably be hoping for an Oregon blowout of the Buckeyes. #goacc?
Who do you have in the National Championship?
Have a great Monday!
