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?

      Out Saturday afternoon doing some sight fishing with my camera on one of Chisago County lakes. Water was a bit dirty and with 26 inches of ice camera clarity was a bit lacking. Did get some nice video of the afternoon. Battery augers failed after a couple of holes so went with the Eskimo gas. Lots of fish above the weeds in 10 FOW.  EazyCam site fishingHB.mp4

      Weather forecast looks to be consistent starting Wednesday with average temps in the  mid 20's. Consistency typically good.  Right now anglers are working fish hard and putting fish in the pail. Electronics are playing a huge roll as some walleyes suspended as far as 10 feet below the ice. Most resorts are out in 31' with some in a touch shallower. More saugers in deep mud with walleyes shallower. Reefs to the west also productive with a few perch being pulled in as well. Rattle and flutter action spoons doing well. Gold, pink, and other glow colors best.  Pike already active in shallow water.  Auger extension needed if fishing on your own with 3+ feet of ice in most areas.  Snowmobilers stay on marked trail, big ice chunks off of trail. Ice houses allowed to be left on lake through March 31st, walleyes open through April 14, pike all year.   Rainy River pushing out some bigger walleyes in the morning/evening with an occasional sturgeon.  Local fish houses along the snowmobile trail from Wheeler's Point to Baudette Bay.  Morning, evening bite most effective.   The NW Angle continues to put nice fish in the bucket. Walleyes and saugers in good numbers.  20-24' early and late, 26-30' during day.  In Ontario waters, crappies in deeper holes of 28-32' on light tackle set ups. Mortality rate is high for released crappies in 25' or deeper, catch fish and move on.  Walleyes all over!  Snowmobile trails on and around the lake are marked and groomed.

      Hi all hope to make it this Saturday. Depending on the snow coming we should be able to drive on correct?

      This past weekend, only two were caught by our group of three fishermen and they were small, in the 10" range.

      Why not go out of Swift?  I nothing about the Warroad access, sorry.

      OK - we made it back!!!  Every trip is different with it's own potential perils.   I finally got into my house on Friday around 11am.  My guests were rookies, so i spent time with each of them, getting setup, heaters started, Vexilars set, houses banked, lines prep'd and set, bait, etc...  The bite was somewhat slow and many small ones.  The day got better 3 to 430pm.  Ended up with 6 nice eyes (19, 18x3, 17x2), 13 jumbos (most ever for a day), 12 small sauger which we ate for dinner.   On Saturday we headed up to the south shore of the Angle, longer ride, so again did not get started too early.  Ended up with our 6 eyes for our limit, these ranged from 15 to 16 inches and a 4-pack of sauger.  Again the bite seemed to pickup at 3 or so and was done by 430pm.   Ice as 3 foot or so.  Snow depth varied a lot, depending on the condition of the ice.  Smooth areas were blown off to crusty 6 inches or so.  Rough ice surely held a lot of snow.   The drive back on Sunday was somewhat tough from Baudette to Emily, winter storm warning.  Slow go, low visibility, and icy roads, sometimes down to 15 mph.   Next scheduled trip is with my wife, son, and three of his Gopher swim teammates for spring break in three weeks.

      Those were caught from a shallow lake (17’) in 9 feet of water at the bottom of the first shoreline break. I was using a UV buckshot and minnow head since the water was murky. The crappie is still swimming the walleye not so much. I didn’t get the exact location. Sorry

      Hello from the NW Angle!

      Minnesota fishing has been most productive in 20-24 feet of water.  Guests are bringing home their limits of Walleye and Sauger with the occasional Perch and Northern mixed in. Fish have been most active early and late in the day and the bite has been terrific. The use of electronics continues to be very beneficial with fish taking jigging spoons, jigg’n raps or rattle baits.  Snowmobile ttrails on the Minnesota side continue to be maintained and are in great shape. We are still making ice, with most spots at over 30 inches. 

      North and East of us in Canada, big Crappies are coming in on light tackle setups out of 30 feet. If you are looking for walleye, they are everywhere!

      Until next week,

      On the Bayfield side of the bay, the target depth is typically 10 to 40 ft. The basswood island area is where they go after lakers. There’s a plowed road that goes out there. As of last week the ice was about 20 inches in that area, might be thicker now. Check out the Bayfield webcam, you can see what kind of activity is going on.

      Wanderer, stop in at the River Rock bait shop in Ashland and they will get you pointed in the right direction.  They are always pretty cool about that.  Fishing near Ashland off of 2nd landing can be good.  Don't need nothing more than regular walleye gear, and some tip-ups and really there is no rhyme or reason where a guy should set up shop. Its a pretty wide open water and the fish that live there are always on the move. For us, most often, the sit and wait pays off.  It has been slower as of late, but still some fish..  Good luck, JH
