Notre Dame v. Georgia Tech

8 posts in this topic

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...

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?

      First off I am not a waterfowl hunter, so this info is second hand.

      Here in the Morrison/E.Todd cty area, the hunt really seemed slow considering the weather conditions.  Although a few birds were shot early in morning the day seemed slow by most accounts around here.

      Good luck to all.

      No internet in the field today. Had a group sky busting keeping birds out of anyone's range. Riverrat and I got buzzed by teal a few time and a pair of woodies scooted through. Should have had a shoveler and some woodies. The bugs were so bad I lost 4 pints of blood. 

      Now to the fun parts Finn was jumping woodcock son the fields on our way out. Finn did good but does not like no action. After leaving the refuge I checked my dads pond. O yeah there was a woodie sitting on the log bang!! No finn needs to do his job.

    • Lindy came along on our trip to Western MN for duck opener. The guys that came out Thursday to start scouting had a field lined up with alot of geese but they got busted off the roost early in a huge flock and didn't commit. We ended up with only 2 birds today.  She had to stay back in her crate during the hunt but got to play with a wing afterwards.

      what size screen does your new unit have----------------I have a 5 inch helix with side imaging and for me it worthless-------------------the screen is TOO small to see whats going on.  I wouldn't buy any unit that didn't have at least a 7 inch screen.  What unit is your new one??

      I've got a powerdrive also...............my unit would run fine out of water,in water no way.  The prop would barely turn.  I ended up replacing the board the unit and it runs like champ now.  I had it to a dealer and they told me there was nothing wrong with it----------but ,they only bench tested it and did not do a tank test

      Fished Thursday in 30 feet out of the gap and did very well. Couple of slots and a couple of dinks but mostly nice keeper size fish, had to quit early in the day because we had all our fish. Should only get better from here on out I would think.

      Feels like fall this morning!  I was yesterday morning with my son. We did some trolling and it was really good.  I think I might try to get the jigging rods out today and give that a go.  First headed to see the wolves with the kids.
