Football Notes

Here's a quick look at the ACC and how some things might shake out............. Someone at the Hive found this article, which links Tulane's "Green Wave" nickname and Georgia Tech, all coming back to a poem written in 1920:

The fourth verse, in which the then-nicknames for Georgia Tech and Alabama are mentioned, seems to get to the heart of the matter:

Now Tech's got a Gold Tornado;
Alabama a thin red line;
But we've got a Rolling Green Breaker
That'll cover 'em every time.
