GAME THREAD: Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets vs. UCF Knights

+

I really wish I could say this game was going to be closer, but I have absolutely no reason to believe it will be. Georgia Tech has come out completely unmotivated the last two weeks. Why would this week be any different? Carter Templeton UCF wins 35-7. At the time I am writing this, Geoff Collins is, incredibly, still employed by Georgia Tech. If that remains true on Saturday, the result is not going to help things stay that way. Jake Patterson UCF wins 41-7. Hey at least Tech may score a TD this week! Robert Binion UCF wins 35-17. Jake Grant UCF wins a lot - less I hate picking against Tech, but after last week, there are limited opportunities to capitalize, from what I saw.

Chansky’s Notebook: The Joy of Losing

+

Remember those seasons when your team wasn’t good enough to win a championship and the arch rival was favored to do so? My first recollection of that was just out of college when NC State had David Thompson and Tom Burleson on a team that just about could not be beaten. Sure, the Tar Heels tried to beat them and almost did several times despite losing 9 in a row to the Wolfpack. Since those were the days when only the ACC champion went to the NCAA Tournament, all of our chips were in for whoever was playing State in the Big Dance. Rugby enthusiasts and the like are now scouting on where to watch the rugby world cup live, delayed but high-quality videos, through satellite feeds, cable, freeview box, broadband, or online with a laptop or pc.

But not in the way you're thinking. #CoastalCahos typically refers to the entire division having a 5-3 record, but this quote from Ken Sugira gets to the true meaning of the term: "Pitt and Virginia are the only two teams in the division mathematically alive to win it, meaning that there will be six different Coastal champions in the past six seasons – Duke (2013), Georgia Tech (2014), North Carolina (2015), Virginia Tech (2016), Miami (2017) and either Pitt or Virginia this season. In the same span, the Atlantic Division has had two champions – Florida State (2013-14) and Clemson (2015-2018). In the short history of two-division conferences in FBS, no division has ever had six different champions in a six-year span." #Goacc

Georgia Tech snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. Again. This time, it was against Miami. The Yellow Jackets find themselves at 3-2 at a time where they should be 5-0. Here are Joey's thoughts on this development.
