Make sure to walk down main street sometime before the game. Plenty of bars and shops that will remind you of a smaller version of Lane and High street.

From around the campus- make sure to walk through the drill field and that will give you a pretty good picture from the center of campus.

My expectation is that you will be welcome to most tailgates and wont be able to get away without someone giving you a drink.

Last year the corners played an outside shade pushing everything inside to bring the play into the middle of the field instead of towards the boundary. 

I was surprised that there were not more options attacking the middle of the field.

So the bear was Bud's next idea against a ball option like team.

Bud view's Urban's offense pretty similar to the Paul Johnson offense, so Bud has been working on new ideas and strategies since PJ came to GT.

Rarely have we seen the same attack against the GT option, so I wouldn't be surprised if it was something completely different than last year.

This is a really good take.

The VT secondary played a push to the middle d that allowed for slants. And you are 100% correct, including the dropped TD pass and the one that went for a TD, I am not sure why more slants were called.

He is my biggest concern.

That's the point of my post.

With WRs possible not being as much of a threat- it allows 8 or 9 to be in the box against Zeke.

My thought was that our approach to D like last year wouldnt work as well b\c your wr's would be able to make more plays than they did last yr and with Zeke getting more touches than he did last yr, he would get some better holes if the wr's were having better success.

Honest thought - I think the impact of having wr's out for season or at least our game will reallyhurt Zeke's ability to find running lanes
