Despite the loss of All-American guard Shaq Mason and injuries to three key offensive linemen, there will still be plenty of talented players taking reps all throughout the spring for Georgia Tech's stout offensive line. The 2014 unit which paved the way for the most efficient offense in history very well could get even better during the 2015 season -- if nothing else, the depth for the upcoming season will be phenomenal compared to years past. Competition between rising redshirt freshmen and true freshmen with some upperclassmen mixed in should make for a very interesting storyline to monitor all throughout the spring.
Georgia Tech baseball knocked off one-time rival Auburn by a final score of 4-1 on Tuesday night, pulling even in the season series with the Tigers and improving to 17-7 on the year. Lefty Devin Stanton got the start for Tech, tossing 5 innings of 1-run baseball with 3 strikeouts. Ben Parr and Zac Ryan combined for 4 innings of spotless relief for the Jackets, shutting down Auburn and squelching any hope of a late rally. Matt Gonzalez continued his hot streak of late, adding 2 hits of his own in the win. Tech will play their next series this weekend when they take on Louisville for three games in Kentucky.
With major losses at every offensive skill position, the 2015 football team will have to look to a whole new group of playmakers to help Paul Johnson's machine run fluidly. One of these players expected to take a big step up this season is A-Back Dennis Andrews, one of a mere handful of players with any experience whatsoever in the offensive system. His great blocking ability as well as some interesting explosiveness could make Andrews both a fantastic compliment to the speedy Broderick Snoddy and an influential part of the team.
Even with all of the conference realignment that has already taken place, there are still a number of schools which should continue to consider a change in scenery. One school pointed out in that article is UCF, which would have a target destination of the ACC. The Knights have obviously had great football success lately, but I'm not sure how that would carry over to a power five conference, not to mention that the ACC would have 15 member schools. I can only see this happening if a current member school pulls a Maryland.
Which schools do you think should consider joining a new conference?
Have a great Thursday!
