The summer is over. The Red Sox have gotten me throught the summer. Good to be blogging again for another football season.
Because of my work schedule, I'll probably be blogging on Friday nights, Saturday mornings and Sunday mornings during the football season. My plan is to link to articles during the week for the Jackets and their upcoming opponent. I'll try to throw in some football stats that I think are interesting as well.
One week to the first exhibition game, 12 days to Clemson. Let's get started.
Collegefootballnews.com has the best previews for each team. Here is the preview for the Jackets:
AJC's Doug Roberson talks about what is expected of Izaan Cross, Julian Burnett, and Jemea Thomas http://www.ajc.com/sports/georgia-tech/3-strong-georgia-tech-124668.html. It also appears that Chandler Anderson appears to be the punter to start the season.
Demaryius Thomas feature by Ray Glier of the AJC. It is also learned that Tyler Melton is out for 2 to 4 weeks http://www.thetandd.com/articles/2009/08/29/sports/doc4a98aefbe66cc150082214.txt?FORM=ZZNR7.
Collegefootballnews.com preview of the Tigers:
An article on how Dabo Sweeney and his 30 year old offensive coordinator Billy Napier http://www.postandcourier.com/news/2009/aug/27/tigers-better-play-calling-better-be-good/.
An article about Willy Korn rooting for freshman Kyle Parker to fail http://www.upstatetoday.com/news/2009/aug/27/tigers-korn-not-giving-qb-job/.
I watched the ESPN college football preview show. Robert Smith and Kirk Herbstreit pick Georgia Tech to win the ACC. Lou Holtz and Lee Corso pick FSU.
