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
These. Look. AWESOME.
The interview starts at about 26:20
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.

Aside from wearing a jersey and having a nickname I'd be cool with us throwing back to every now and then, Tech's 1917 Yellow Jackets were the South's first national champions. They were myth busters who blew the roof off of the Northeastern stranglehold on college football and ushered in a truly national era for the sport. You're welcome, America!
ALERT: There is now a site we can all use to show how Tech built this city, how corporations benefit from locating near Tech, and how Tech students benefit from being in Atlanta. There's a whole page on the "Tech-Atlanta Cycle." Go forth and SELL IT!
We caught up to preview the entire ACC with Georgia Tech legend (and now ESPN sideline reporter) Roddy Jones. He gave us one of the best Paul Johnson stories I've ever heard, a look at how the dismissal of Dedrick Mills affects Georgia Tech's standing in the Coastal Division, his picks for who will represent the conference in Charlotte, and much more!
A little hype video I made. I know, it's a little rough around the edges. But I hope the message comes through. Go Jackets!
