Georgia’s 2011 season gets off to a high-profile start with two games against highly ranked opponents, including what should be a much-hyped season opener in the Georgia Dome, while Georgia Tech…
“This first game, it’s very exciting for us,” Richt said. “To play in the Dome, it’s a big deal. To play Boise State is a big deal. To know that if we’re not ready, we’re going to get whipped; if we’re not ready, we’re going to get embarrassed.
“That should be a lot of motivation for our players and our coaches. It already is. Of course, game No. 2 is pretty big, too. We just can’t be warming up. We have to be ready to go from the very beginning.”
Georgia Tech opens at home against Western Carolina and goes to Middle Tennessee.
“We’ve had probably varying things through the years,” Yellow Jackets coach Paul Johnson said. “That’s just the way it gets set up sometimes. I think it’s beneficial if you can play most of your nonconference games early. … Middle Tennessee is a bowl team and we’re on the road so that won’t be an easy game. It’s just kind of the way the schedule fell.”
You can feel the buzz, right?
Georgia Tech football will always be Chantastic.
