Notre Dame v. Georgia Tech

Recommended Posts

Matt Johnson

Anyone watch this game the other day? It was quite the game.

Calvin Johnson from Georgia Tech is going to go top three in next year's NFL draft, this guy can play! 6-5, 238 pounds and runs a sub 4.4 40 and has a 45 inch vertical! Talk about a dominating force. A guy that size who can break away from the D and make open field plays.

And then you have Tashard Choice who transfered from Oklahoma to Georgia Tech and runs the ball like he's playing backyard football with friends. A huge pick-up for Georgia Tech.

Although not rated, Georgia Tech is going to turn a lot of heads this season. Losing 10-14 to Notre Dame shouldn't be considered as something negative. Georgia Tech was the better team, Notre Dame got a few weak calls because they're the #2 and they deserved to get beat. Just goes to show you that playing tough D, even when you're overall play is horrible, can still win you football games.

Keep an eye on Calvin Johnson though, he had good seasons in the past, but this year he's twice the player...

lots of luck

Matt,

I watched the game also.

I watched a pretty poorly played game in many ways, but it was a first game of the season scenario, so there was a little rust.

But when it comes down too it Notre Dame beat a non Top 25 team that I believe lost 3 of 4 to end the season last year.

After that performance I question the #2 ranking. I always question the early season rankings for a lot of teams.

Why did GT go away from that stud receiver?? He was a man among boys on the field, very odd.

With the #4 pick in the 2007 draft the Green Bay Packers select Calvin Johnson, Wide Receiver out of Georgia Tech.

The bad news is with this pick Favre decides to play one more year.

The good news it will give A. Rogers a nice Jennings & Johnson combo for years to come.

More like: with the number two pick in the 2007 NFL draft the GB Packers select Brady Quinn.... still can't believe they drafted Rodgers.... if only Favre hadn't mislead that team they could have been something or so the Packer faithful believe. It's back to the 80's for that Packers team... 3 - 13, 4 - 12, 5 - 11 type of deal.... ahhh, the good old days are back. tongue.gif

Buzzsaw,

I looked through the schedule and I think we can at least pull 5 wins out. I'd put the optimistic number out there, but you know I'm more of a realist, even when it comes to the Packers. Besides, If Quinn has the year like all are predicting he will most likely be the #1 pick overall, and I don't think they would take Quinn with Rogers in the mix at #2 if that is indeed where they pick. Remember they passed on Leinart this year, and I believe they would have done so even if Favre didn't return. You take Quinn of the board and that leaves the Packers with 3 stud RB to choose from plus Johnson.

I will agree with you though I did not like the Rogers pick at the time as the had many more needs to fill rather than future QB. Only time will tell I guess whether it was the right pick.

Here's to the Packers starting of 1-0 this weekend.

I got them beating New Orleans, New York Jets, Detroit at home and San Fran on the road, though I think the 49ers will be quite improved from last year. I also think they may be able to pull off a win they aren't expected to, so I will take the Bears at home for that. Realistically I say 5-11, pessimistically I say 3-13. Optimistically I would say 9-7 best case scenario. Guess time will come. Is it Sunday yet?

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!

      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      9-11am was best time both days.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....
