I like this move. Georgia Tech is a P5 ($) game, but they aren't an overbearing opponent. I expect it to be a bit closer this time around (heck, maybe we'll be good enough to beat them in 2023, who knows?). Don't love having to see the Triple Option again (or ever) but I'll live with this over other potential P5 opponents.


Paul Johnson is gone as Georgia Tech's head coach and the option went with him. Geoff Collins is the new head coach and his OC is Dave Patenaude, who came from Temple. So they'll be running something similar to what we do in more of a pro-style scheme (assuming the current staffs will still be intact by then).
GO BG!!!

Oh man, that’s right! I knew they had a new coach, but I forgot they ditched the Triple Option. Tradition on the brain. Haha

Even better, then.

IIRC Georgia Tech lost in 2019 to the Citadel. Take a guess what type of offense they run.

I’m certainly excited for the schedule to drop. I’m also slightly annoyed that they have it but insist on waiting instead of just telling us so we, the fans, can make plans.

6 days may not be a massive difference, but I’m dying over here, waiting to plan my fall Saturday schedule.
