Georgia Tech stories from this past week that you may have missed.
Media voted Georgia Tech third. How the rest of the league looks, and how Tech has done in the Paul Johnson era against projections.
Mark Bradley’s take on Tech’s projection to finish third in the Coastal.
A-backs ran the ball 118 times last season, accounting for 18.7 percent of all carries. It was the lowest percentage for A-back carries in Johnson’s time at Tech. The percentage has typically been in the mid-20’s.
What ACC Coastal players think of when they think of Tech.

From the functional – cabinets specifically made large enough for laptops, outfitted with power outlets and USB ports – to the technologically advanced – retinal scanners and “self-healing” laminate – the renovated Tech locker room was designed to woo prospects.
ACC players’ memories of games against Georgia Tech.
“It’s just one of those (games), you think back, you don’t remember that much about it other than it didn’t go well. You went through the film and you just kind of hated what you saw.”
He explained why he’s “really, really excited about Todd.”
What Georgia Tech players stood out in last year’s game.

“It lets you run more. It lets you be a little more free. Once you start to learn the defense more, it’s easier to play fast and try to play within the parameters of the defense, and when you learn what you’re supposed to do, you can make more plays off just knowing.”
“I’m looking at Justin (Thomas) and I see him going out for the route and I’m, like, Dang, he’s kind of covered up. I’m hoping that Qua doesn’t throw it because he was about to throw an interception.”
