    What was the show last year that featured former coaches analyzing the game as it was shown? That would be pretty good to show on the standard ESPN.

    Maybe I am; but I am doubtful most markets west of the Mississippi will pick up the ACCN. I hear fans on here complain about us getting sent to ESPN2; much less FXSouth, and some sidewalk fans don't watch when the GTvsUGA game is on SECN. You lose viewers when you go to off the beaten path networks, particularly if they have to buy another provider (Hulu, YouTubeTV) to watch. There will be sports bars across the country that probably won't have access to the game so they will just show what is on ESPN.

    Unless we lose by 40 + points, have 105 yards total offense, are 3 of 16 on third down, only cross the 50 yard line twice, get picked three times, lose four fumbles, and have two kicks blocked.

    I just hope our offense can be better than this on 50% of our drives unlike last year:

    3 plays, -25 yd, fumble, defensive TD
    3 plays, 0 yd, punt
    3 plays, -3 yd, punt
    3 plays, -4 yd, punt
    6 plays, 10 yd, punt
    3 plays, -6 yd, punt

    This. Hell, I'm still trying to figure out how I'm going to watch it here in Atlanta. Most likely going to have to do a Hulu TV or YoutubeTV trial subscription unless DIRECTV Now picks it up.

    Just drop DirecTV and switch to YouTube TV. You won't be sorry.

    Either this is some legitimately masterful trolling, or for the first time in my life I've just read retard-fetish erotic literature and it still hasn't answered my question of whether they take the helmet off when they masturbate.

    Underrated post. The spin on this game writes itself if we keep them from madden scoring.

    I know Clemson's recruiting almost guarantees that they can reload, as opposed to rebuild, but they lost 7 starters from their defense, including 4 DL and a CB to the NFL draft. I don't think they will be as dominant on defense this season. Maybe we can throw a few wrinkles at them and move the ball some, especially with it being the first game of the season and the Tech offense being a little bit of a mystery.

    Lol these Clemson homers are really full of themselves:

    https://247sports.com/college/clems...t-worst-case-scenarios-134405578/#134405578_4

    Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
    Best case: 3-9, 1-7 — Much like Duke this season, Georgia Tech's opener is unwinnable. A road game at top-ranked Clemson with a team undergoing a complete-180 philosophical shift usually means a multi-touchdown loss that'll need to be flushed quickly. USF in the home opener the following week presents an intriguing challenge.

    Worst case: 1-11, 0-8 — Tough sledding for first-year coach Geoff Collins, who may be favored in three games tops. The Yellow Jackets will have a chance to win three games in September, but after that, don't expect much.

    I actually think it will be a respectable game for a while. Sort of a 1990’s FSU type game.

    Best Case 3-9, 1-7? Do these dipshits understand the meaning of the phrase Best Case?

    Thanks for more bulletin board material from someone too lazy to do their homework.

    I guess at 4-8, CGC gets Bobby Dodd coach of the year. 6-6 and he is in the CFB HOF. Never has a coach faced the gargantuan task of teaching some football players a different offense. I hear our team is made up entirely of walk-ons, too.
