Mark doesn't think that Georgia Tech's schedule is even in the top-50 among Power-5 programs. Is he right?
Mike and Joey are back this week, talking about Joey making some Clemson fans mad on Twitter (0:00), legal issues and an odd QB situation at Notre Dame (5:00), a suddenly fragile QB situation at Florida State (13:40), surprising QB situations at Virginia and Virginia Tech (18:50), listener questions on ACC matchups and barbecue (30:00), their picks for ACC Division and Conference Champions (50:30), and a look at the win totals set for every team in the conference (1:16:05). (Shocking spoilers: Joey likes Georgia Tech to go over their total, and Duke to go under theirs.) Subscribe on iTunes or on the Google Play Store!
Joey has previewed each of Georgia Tech's position groups with MarkRogersTV over the last several months. Take a look at how things look for each set of players this fall!
The dwagfrosh were getting a lot of press last week for being their best incoming class ever, and we knew the GT stats wouldn't be far behind. Among the notable stats is the tidbit that the class is 58/42 male/female for the second year in a row and enrollment in Computing and the Sciences is skyrocketing. Every diversity metric is up alongside every academic and selectivity metric! Go Jackets!
I recently joined the Purdue site at SB Nation, Hammer & Rails, to discuss their recent hiring of Mike Bobinski. My remarks about his time on the Flats were...less than glowing.
Georgia Tech President "Bud" Peterson recently named an 8-person search committee headed by Al Trujillo, president and chief operating officer of the Georgia Tech Foundation, Inc. to recommend candidates for the newly vacated position of Director of Athletics. While the committee may still employ the services of a search firm to aid them in the search, the 8-person committee consists of current faculty and staff, community leaders, and 2 students. In the meantime, former Senior Associate Director of Athletics Paul Griffin has been selected to serve as interim Director of Athletics.
This week, we're talking about the total lack of creativity from the media in selecting the preseason All-ACC teams (1:00), we examine how Miami could be a better team with a worse record in Year 1 under Mark Richt (9:00), we do some #TalkinBoutTheNoles as their loaded roster looks to reclaim the Atlantic Division (33:30), and we try to find a reason to think that Clemson won't return to the College Football Playoff at the season's end (54:05).
I made a hype video for the upcoming season. Enjoy!
Just a friendly reminder to all football recruits that the Power 5 football university with the best connections in the technology industry in this state (where salaries are 84% higher than the rest of the private sector) is the Georgia Institute of Technology. Want to do really well around here whether you're NFL-bound or not? Go Jackets!
