The option is out at GT
http://footballscoop.com/news/update-georgia-tech/

Quote:As has been widely reported, Ken Whisenhunt has already interviewed. The Chargers offensive coordinator and former Cardinals and Titans head coach hasn’t coached in the college game since a 2-year stint at Vanderbilt in 1995-96, but he’s not only a Georgia Tech alum but a former Yellow Jackets teammate of Georgia Tech AD Todd Stansbury.

Other candidates that have been mentioned by sources are Clemson co-offensive coordinator Tony Elliott and Temple head coach Geoff Collins.

Does this mean that if somebody has a bye before playing GT, Tech fans won't complain? 05-stirthepot

Will the ACC be scheduling GT to play 3 and 4 teams a year coming off byes while the blue boys in the triangle get zero?

Quote:Georgia Tech is not the only team to bear this burden. Virginia Tech and Wake Forest played three games against teams coming off open dates in 2015 and Florida State played four in 2014. In 2013, Clemson, Duke and FSU played three such games. However, between 2013-17, only Georgia Tech and FSU have played ACC opponents coming off byes every season.

Johnson was further bothered by the lack of balance for teams facing opponents coming off byes. Six conference teams — Boston College, Clemson, Louisville, Syracuse, Virginia Tech and Wake Forest — will not have any such games, while Tech has three. Last season, five teams didn’t have to face an opponent with an extra week to prepare, where Tech had three such games.

“You can’t tell me that it’s computer-driven when you have three teams with byes before they play you and six teams in the league have none,” Johnson said. “That’s a pretty good computer model.”

It’s something of a running joke among Tech fans that North Carolina has had an open date before playing Tech five times in Johnson’s nine seasons, where the Jackets have never enjoyed the same advantage against the Tar Heels in that span. Tech is 3-2 in those games.
