I thought about covering the NCAA sanctions against Georgia Tech but although there appears to be an appeal going through, the football community itself seems to have moved on. I guess we are all taking a page from the CPJ Book of "Acknowledge and Move On". I will admit that I am very ignorant about the violations but it appears that the NCAA is doing all it can to show how tough of an institution it is. Personally, I think the Ohio State case made them look foolish and now they want to flash their badge and rain down heckfire on any program, regardless of the level or severity of the violation.
Oh well. Acknowledge and Move On.
So instead of focusing on that topic, I want to move forward and write about the upcoming season. And really, isn't that all that matters to fans? D received the season tickets in the mail not too long ago and it just made everything seem better. I haven't gotten to see them yet as he is hoarding them. I will just imagine the shiny surface and cool design as it takes me to my happy place.
I seem to have gotten off track. My apologizes.
Tech has been in the news a bit as we move closer to the first game of the season. I have read some nice comments about the physicality of the practices and how the team is coming along nicely. I wanted to share these with you because I am a giver.

CBS Sports Rapid Reports page is a nice, quick way to learn more about the team, READ IT!
The Macon Telegraph gives a mixed review from the last scrimmage, READ IT!
And lastly, my favorite article about the work on a true passing game, READ IT!
I think there is many a Tech fan that is looking forward to see what kind of team we will have this season. Is it a young team with a lot of speed and potential but will that talent be successful? If I could break out the crystal ball and tell what I hope will happen, it would be to see a team that plays with intensity and focus.
