GT's football team is doing yoga. Why is this news-worthy? Cause it's with DIAMOND DALLAS PAGE, BABY!
Atlanta's #1 college football writer, Tony Barnhart, has 10 questions for the upcoming season. He mentions Tech a few times, and it's hard to say how much is "please the readers" homer-ism. He comments "Notre Dame will be fortunate to win at Georgia Tech on Sept. 2," and mentions Calvin Johnsons in a Heisman discussion. I agree with him that CJ "is as good as any of" the Heisman front-runners, but disagree with the follow-up "He just needs to get more touches." It is nearly impossible for a pure wide receiver to win the Heisman. I doubt Reggie could get CJ the ball enough to get him high in the Heisman voting.
Barnhart also took some time out to sit down with College Gameday co-host Lee Corso, to get a few predictions for the season. He reveals Gameday will be 2 hours (up from 90 min.), and claims the Jackets have a good chance to beat Notre Dame if they:
"Spend the summer figuring out how to get Calvin Johnson the ball in the Notre Dame secondary. He is the best wide receiver in college football — period.
Keep leaning on Jon Tenuta, who is one of the best defensive coordinators I've ever seen. I don't know what they are paying him, but it ain't enough."
Former Tech wide receiver standout Kerry Watkins is experiencing solid success in the CFL.
