Mandatory pre-season primer

Alright.

I'm only gonna say this once...


I hear the talking heads expecting us to do nothing this year.


I hear the pundits claiming that we will be locked in the basement of the ACC this year.


I hear the bettors overlooking us as some sort of pushover in the midst of a coaching and philosophy change this year.


I'm well aware of the fact that we are in the midst of a rebuild and Coach Collins and company are gonna need a year to get everything rolling. And despite that, I have one thing to say.


I HONESTLY DON'T GIVE A DAMN WHAT EVERYONE IS SAYING ABOUT HOW WE WILL DO THIS YEAR! And you wanna know why?


Because THIS. IS. GEORGIA TECH!!! If we want to win the ACC in year one of Coach Collins, then by golly are we gonna push for it! We're at Georgia Tech; we can do that!

We can hang with the big boys! We aren't afraid to go up with the best of them! And if there's one thing this team, these players, and these fans know how to do, it's to NEVER GIVE IN!!

Every time I see one of these stupid posts on social media about a 4-8 expected record for the season, my blood boils. We are capable of more than mediocrity or bottom feeding regardless of the strength of our schedule or the perceived lack of talent on this roster. Because we have mettle. We have grit. We don't buckle under pressure or fold when the heat is on us.


So take this season one game at a time, and take each game one possession at a time. You never know; a few stops and successful scoring drives could be enough to score a win any given day. And we have a chance to win every game we play this year. Nothing is ever a foregone conclusion, and no lead is too large. We could surprise more than a few people this year and do some big things!!


"Stand in the face of the challenger, and don't retreat.

Empower these men (on the football field) to do what they came here to do,

And you gonna sing in the end.


WE GONNA FIGHT

TILL WE CAN'T FIGHT NO MORE

GONNA LIE DOWN AND BLEED AWHILE

THEN WE GONNA GET UP AND FIGHT SOME MORE!!!"


GO JACKETS!!!!!
