As usual, GoldTimer
is your go-to guy for GT linkage, and he brings us these gems:
- Just College Football has a poll about the hottest week one game. GT/ND is ahead with 50% of the vote.
- Preseason practice begins Thursday at Rose Bowl Field. Full schedule on the link. Open to the public for two weeks. (I doubt you're officially "allowed to," but they don't do anything if you bring a small cooler of beer. Coach Tenuta actually gave us props for bringing booze.)
- Someone actually picked Georgia Tech to win the Coastal Division! Now, I of course believe we will since I wear my white & gold glasses constantly, but I didn't expect any publications to make this prediction. Here is the News & Observer's detailed predictions for GT (losses to ND, Miami, and Clemson).
There's been an interesting discussion lately at the Dawg blawgs about Georgia Tech vs. Notre Dame; I recommend you read all the following links. I tend to disagree with the convictions of Bulldogs, but I've got nothing but respect for the quality of blogging that comes from UGA... but then, they have a journalism school, whereas I'm thankful I can even write English after graduating from Tech. (The Institute will leave you fluent in equations but hardly literate in prose.)
Now, there's an urgent matter in the blogosphere. EveryDayShouldBeSaturday
, one of the premier
college football blogs out there, threatens to be eating by the Nothing. And much like Bastian leading Atreyu on his quest through Fantasia, YOU have the power to save EDSBS.

Okay, what that really means is that EDSBS gets a wicked lot of hits every day, and they need to get a dedicated server, which requires money. If you can donate 10 or 20 bucks, it will help keep the site alive.
