Two Teams, Two Coaches We Know…and “All Kinds of Getting Better To Do!”

ATLANTA, GA – Two teams, two coaches we know. And “all kinds of getting better to do.”

Georgia Tech and Arkansas were so horrid last season they each could improve as much as any team in their conferences and I can’t guarantee you’ll notice.

Georgia Tech went 3-9 last season. The three wins were by a combined 13 points.

USF 14-10

Miami 28-21 OT

NC State 28-26

“Well, what about their close losses?”

There weren’t many.

Clemson by 38

Temple by 22

UNC by 16

Duke by 18

Pitt by 10

Virginia Tech by 45

Georgia by 45

Could be a legit transformation on the Flats this season and still finish 4-8. There’s exactly one guaranteed win on this coming season’s schedule, Gardner-Webb. I gave the same total last season and told you Citadel.

Arkansas might have been better . . . nah, they weren’t. Very different details, but no better.

Ole Miss by 15

San Jose by a touchdown

Auburn by 41

Bama by 41

Mississippi State by 30

Western Kentucky by 26, and if you’re a Hogs fan you put a swear word between Western and Kentucky

LSU by 36

Missouri beat Arkansas by 10 and fired its coach the next day.

Ole Miss and Mississippi State beat you by a combined 45 points and BOTH schools fired their coach.

Programs in power 5 conferences should never fall this far and in the case of Tech they haven’t on defense, just sorta close. But the magnitude of each of these rebuilds has both Geoff Collins and Sam Pittman staring at different, but equal, mountains to climb.
