huh? since when can a side chick leave someone? jump offs can’t leave…they’re not like employees or even temps…they’re more like volunteers…they can’t leave a job…they can only stop volunteering their services…
This is from our guest blogger, offensive tackle Nick Claytor, who was recently named a starter for Saturday’s season opener against S.C. State:
“Football season is here! After a grueling offseason the wait for kickoff is over. This year’s Yellow Jacket team has much to prove after our bowl loss last year, and the loss of great talent. Coach Johnson has let us know, more than once, that this team has to earn respect every week. With proven leaders in captains Joshua Nesbitt and Brad Jefferson this team is confident and focused. Position battles have been resolved, the depth chart is set, and we are ready to roll into Bobby Dodd Stadium and light it up on the Flats!
“Fans should be excited to see the triple option system in its third year. Led by Heisman hopeful Josh Nesbitt, this offense will be explosive. With three year veterans manning different positions and an experienced, gritty offense line the triple option will be hard to stop. Combined with a 3-4 defense under coach Al Groh people should pay close attention. The defense looks hungry, and the blitz can come from anywhere!
“Every year we have goals that we focus on and strive toward. We want to repeat as ACC Champions, but overall we want to win a bowl game. We don’t just mean any bowl game but THE bowl game. As coach Todd Spencer would say, “Low standards cannot survive high expectations.” We believe in ourselves and Saturday against South Carolina State marks the beginning of the journey towards achieving greatness.
“I have never been more excited to start a season, fans should expect to see us flying around and knocking off heads. This season we will go out and snatch our respect. So be there and “Brace for Impact”!”
So the college football season is starting on Saturday. The players at Georgia Tech have grinded through another camp sponsored by a boisterous 120 degree heat index, riddled with sprains, cramps and contusions, and strung together by arduous meeting schedules. This 9 to 5 is more like a 5 – 9 every day for a month. A couple practical jokes here or there, mixed with the hilarity of Malc-Dawg and Mike P’s freestyles usually ease the pain and help these Joqs move day to day.
With limited time to sleep and low energy levels even texting your girlfriend can become a chore. The only thing that matters is getting dibs on the big leather couches in the lounge. Wearing the same underwear inside out is no big deal since you only get to be in them for about 3 hours between workouts. But at the end of the day, when you make it through camp, you have become enthralled with stupid crazy amounts of knowledge and days worth of repetition and you are equipped to go into a 15-week battle.
