Technical Tidbits 5/17: Baseball Beats Georgia Southern, Football Staff Numbers Leaked

We now know what CPJ is always talking about.

NCAA Football: Georgia Tech at Virginia Tech Peter Casey-USA TODAY Sports

Georgia Tech beat Georgia Southern 12-3 Tuesday night in Tech’s final midweek game of the season. Brandt Stallings had two home runs and Coleman Poje added three hits including a homer en route to the victory for the Jackets. Tech ends the regular season this weekend with a three-game series against Virginia at Russ Chandler Stadium.

CBS obtained the staff sizes of every FBS football team. While there could be some ambiguity with graduate assistants and some of the other numbers, according to this data, Georgia Tech’s staff size is the second-lowest in the Power 5 - ahead of only Tennessee. Paul Johnson has said on multiple occasions he feels Georgia Tech has not provided the football program with the resources necessary to consistently compete with programs like Clemson or Georgia. Hopefully under new Athletic Director Todd Stansbury, Johnson can get more of the resources he thinks will help Tech be on a more level playing field with the elite programs on its schedule.

247Sports released its batch of “way-too-early” bowl projections, in which Georgia Tech is slotted to play Maryland in the Quick Lane Bowl. The last two ACC representatives in the Quick Lane Bowl have had records of 6-6 in the regular season. So in the estimation of 247, Tech will take a step back from the 8-4 regular season mark the Jackets posted last season. But while bowl projections are fun to look at, I wouldn’t put too much stock in them just yet.

Have a great Wednesday!
