    They do when the alternative is 3 and outs with incompletions

    This could be an historic beatdown in the series

    We have the third fewest seniors in all of FBS on our team. Last time we had something like that was 2015.

    Don't forget sacks, Mr. Positive! Those will keep the clock running, too.

    What you guys don't understand is I have complete and total power over the outcome in this game. I never ever win any bets when there is money involved. If I put my money on the Jackets, then we lose. If I put my money on the tuggers, then we win. The problem in both situations is I lose my money. Now fortunately for you guys, I am willing to take one for the team. As as show of appreciation for my freshly depleted 401k, which will result in letting you all savor the sweet taste of the V, I know you guys will make it rain in my paypal account. I also accept Waffle House gift cards or Paul Johnson autographed memorabilia, hell it doesn't even have to be autographed.

    Edit: As an added bonus, I will also empty my kid's 529 account, I know the hill will make a scholarship available for this one.

    You're welcome.

    Two years tops to get to $75k if you graduated from Tech.

    Not only are we not losing by 35+ pts, but this team is gonna surprise the Nation by how well we compete

    IMO we scare the hell out of Clemson and force them to win with a late score

    We are going to run the ball with authority

    You don't lose 4 NFL DLs, an NFL LB, and 1 or 2 NFL safeties without paying a price somewhere

    I'm all in on Coach Collins, I have always believed that GT should recruit better (consistently Top25) based on the Atlanta MSA, and that the Top100 HS players in GA contain 65-70 academic FB qualifiers for GT

    Now over the next 5 seasons I get to see CGC prove that I wasn't that crazy to begin with

    Time for TML

    Vegas heard us and moved the line to 37.

    Duke has a lower spread against Bama.

    Rather than forcing them to win, we should force them not to win

    I mis wrote it

    I guess I should have written IF they are going to win they'll need a late 4th Qtr comeback

    Vegas thanks you for your 75k donation to its general cocaine fund.

    65-70 out of 100 actually good students in Ga don't qualify for Tech, much less football players (even at the reduced stds).

    You are factually correct and your trophy is in the mail.

    Didn’t you bet your life savings against the spread?
