Traffic at the AJ-C blogs must be a little slow: Mark Bradley projects Georgia Tech, “the new lords of the ring”, as a preseason #9 in 2009.
No word on where he thinks LSU would be ranked.

Let the Nerds be overranked and overconfident so the fall will be that much greater.
I think GT has come up with their own brand of Cool Aid like Obama did.. and the media is drinking the hell out of that stuff.
I don’t read the AJC but was that article written before the evening of December 31? Bradley isn’t exactly a CFB guru from what I have read from him in the past. I wish all pre-season polls were tiered for the first 5 weeks with no numerical ranking assigned. Teams could move among tiers each week, but not having them given a numerical “slot” until October would allow voters to vote without being tied to something they committed to in July. I never look at who I would put into my “elite” Tier 1 until summer camp, but I am pretty sure GT will not make it based on the talent I saw there this season. Not sure who all they lose, but they were very inconsistent this past season, and may not finish in the Top 20.
