Georgia Tech Record:
Dylan Callaghan-Croley: 9-3
Before delving into my reasons, I will say that I fully believe that Georgia Tech can win 10 games this regular season if the all goes well. I think that for most of the season, the Yellow Jackets offense is going to be one of the best in the ACC and will be hard to stop. If TaQuon Marshall can take his much needed steps forward, I think Tech has that 10 win potential. I think the transition of having a new defense could cause some struggles to occur throughout the season but overall I see them losing to Clemson, one of Virginia Tech/Miami, and Georgia. But as we all know, there’s always a chance that they drop a game against an opponent that had no business beating them.
Lee Cagle: 9-3
I think Georgia Tech goes 9-3 with losses to Louisville, Virginia and UGA. That’s right I believe we will beat Clemson at home and VT on the road. Clemson seems to have a habit of starting slow and that will play favorably for the Jackets. Losing to Virginia is a simple gut-check moment that I can’t explain.
Anthony Hartwig: 9-3
Georgia Tech plays a strong schedule and there are teams on there that I can’t predict Tech will beat, that being said I think they’ll stay away from the mistakes that cost them games last season they should’ve won.
Mitch Green: 9-3
My prediction is 9-3 with losses to Clemson, Duke and UGA. Clemson and UGA are the most predictable of any losses this year; however, no team has mathematically given us more issues over the last four years than Duke, against whom Tech is 1-3 with an average point differential of -10/game (Clemson and UGA both sit at -7.5/game). The highlight of the season is a victory over an unbeaten Miami at Bobby Dodd. Finally, we finish the year strong with a win over West Virginia in the Camping World Bowl.
Blake Silvers: 8-4
Paul Johnson’s teams have a history of bouncing back after a disappointing season. With TaQuon Marshall at the helm for the offense, scoring shouldn’t be a problem. It’ll be interesting to see how the new defense pans out. If the Jackets win the games they should and snag a few more along the way, I don’t think eight wins is out of reach for the regular season.
