The GTG's, Tech's custom geek-rap duo, have tonight's theme ready to go. If you missed the yellow Lambo from the shirtless Tech calendar, it makes a cameo below.
Yellow will not be the theme tonight, as Tech fans have been asked to "White Out" the stadium by the team for their first home conference game, since the Jackets will be wearing white unis and gold helmets tonight. (Even though it's after Labor Day, fashion rules be damned.)
On the strategic side, Tony Barnhart wonders if Clemson DC Kevin Steele has something special cooking for the Tech option attack:
Last week, for example, he went with a lot of six defensive back looks against Tony Franklin’s spread offense at Middle Tennessee. He didn’t play his base defense for one play, which made sure Tech’s offenses coaches had to reach back to Alabama to get some film on Steele’s scheme.
Whatever you pull on them defensively, it's difficult to stop everything. The linemen launch into the defense at thigh level, cutting down defenders on every play. Watch it tonight: while legal, it has to be illegally frustrating to face snap after snap after snap.
