Tennessee decides one meteor game a year isn’t enough.

On the other hand, at least a Jancek-Martinez defense has an even chance against the genius.

There are days when I miss Stingtalk being an open forum.

This is one of them.

Jerry Palm’s Playoff Projection

This would cap a pretty good season for Georgia, no?  Or would you feel disappointed that the Dawgs wound up just outside the top four?

As a side note, Palm is projecting that Georgia Tech’s bowl streak comes to an end. (And that’s with ten ACC teams going to the postseason.)  That probably wouldn’t be such a good thing for the genius.

Sunday afternoon buffet

Eh, let’s clean out the pantry.

  • Gus Malzahn promises “clarity” on how he’ll use Nick Marshall in the opener.  Won’t that be dependent on how much of a game Arkansas gives Auburn?
  • Tennessee claims it drew 40,000 to an open scrimmage.  Let’s see how they turn out in November.
  • DJ Shockley is as puzzled by Georgia’s SEC championship drought as anyone:  “It’s beyond amazing, and I can’t even imagine how this has happened,” Shockley said. “It’s almost like a string of bad luck. I look back at all the talent that has been there since I left and the guys that Georgia has put out, and it’s just amazing. It’s one of those things that has baffled me just like it’s baffled the fans.”
  • Can you believe Will Muschamp has had a hard time recruiting élite offensive talent to Gainesville?
  • Brandon Larrabee makes a solid point about how LSU does a good job surviving its NFL departures.  But, man, the Tigers sure have to replace a lot of skill position experience this season.
  • I don’t think it’s a good sign if Ted Roof thinks from watching Tech scrimmages one of the things his defense needs to improve is the pass rush.

Tulane football is Chantastic.

You may not know this, but Georgia Tech travels to Tulane the second week of the season.  Having a road game against a mid-major is bad enough, but here’s what makes it really special:

It took 14 minutes for Tulane fans to make a statement.

That’s how long single-game tickets to the Green Wave’s home opener against Georgia Tech, in the newly-constructed Yulman Stadium, were available to the general public.

Prior to Friday’s brief public sale, Tulane officials said it already sold all but 2,000 season tickets to the new stadium. Despite a slightly higher price tag – $50 for the opener, as opposed to $35 for the remainder of the season – calls flooded the Green Wave ticket office on Friday morning.

All without a single accompanying hot dog or Coke.  Somehow I doubt the same would have occurred at good ol’ BDS.
