Get pumped.

Dunno why it cuts off with like 30s left, but oh well.

A few quick links today:

Pete Fiutak from CFN gives us weak props by suggesting the Irish will lose to us.

Phil Steele also chimes in, almost saying we might beat the Irish while explaining that Notre Dame's schedule is simply too tough to rank them #1.

The AJC lists Rivals's top 50 in-state prospects. We have 2 linebacker commits on the list (#s 25 & 42 on the list), and we're on the short lists for two RBs (#7, 36), a "built like Calvin Johnson" WR (#20), and another tall wideout (#31). Also listing Tech is Georgia's #6 prospect, O-Lineman Nick Claytor. Rumors swirled that he was committing soon after calling Coach Gailey over the weekend, but Matt Winkeljohn of the AJC explains Claytor is not committed to anyone yet.
Tech is competing with tOSU and Auburn, among others, for this man-child.

The AJC interviews Sporting News executive editor Bob Hille, and he seemingly mocks the hell out of his own magazine's #1 ranking of the Irish. WTF?
