The Quad looks at #73 Georgia Tech.

Evidently it’s Georgia Tech day (I swear I didn’t get the memo). Here’s the preseason analysis from the NYT’s blog The Quad.

Sign of trouble (from the “Key Losses” section):

… Bell was 23-28 in field goal attempts as a senior, scoring a team-leading 108 total points. Brooks, the only punter taken in the draft, was a first-team all-American as a senior. He leaves with the highest career punting average in A.C.C. history.

It’s one thing when you’re really strong on offense and defense and have to break in a new place kicker or punter. But when you’re reinventing the wheel on offense and only have eight returning starters, those kind of special team losses tend to get magnified.
