Sad. Pathetic. But amusing.
Eh? Oh, sorry. It’s just that it doesn’t look like Georgia Tech will be able to schedule a spring football game this year. Why, you ask?
… With 58 scholarship players and the inevitable injuries you can expect in a spring, fielding two complete teams to go head-to-head could be a problem. 58 players – 44 offensive and defensive starters = a 14-player cushion, and when you break it down position by position there’s a high likelihood there will be somewhere (say, center, for instance) where there aren’t enough bodies to have a full-fledged game.
Time for a small dose of reality, Jacket fans. Your team has serious depth problems and runs an offense that requires multiple bodies at the running back and quarterback slots. Unless Tech’s got one of the greatest freshman classes ever assembled on the Flats coming in, things are likely to get a little dicey come November.
But cheer up. You’ll always have Dragon*Con.
