Pre-Kick Updates of a Last Minute Nature

Block-C's good gentlemen are split on the predictions for tonight, and believe ESPN's fondness for Atlanta games has a logical explanation.

In yet another Thursday night GT game (Atlanta is easily accessible for ESPN staff and the wives love the shopping, which explains the propensity for yearly games there more so than the electrifying football environment, and this info comes straight from ESPNers, not that it should matter to Techies, who will steadfastly accuse me of being a hater, but I’m not, good for them.)

We do have an IKEA here in the ATL. Feel the power of fine inexpensive furniture and hot Swedish meatballs on demand!

Jeff Schultz also points out that Paul Johnson will attempt to open the season 2-0 for the second straight year as a sophomore year coach, a feat the Jackets last accomplished eighty-eight years ago. Consider the list of illustrious coaches who've cruised through Tech in that time span: Pepper Rodgers, Bill Curry, Bobby Dodd, Bobby Ross, and George O'Leary. None of them started 2-0 in their first two years at Tech, a baffling stat you have to see on paper to believe.
