11/19/12 - A team that was routed at home by Middle Tennessee and fired its defensive coordinator at midseason will get a chance to play for a BCS bowl bid. Georgia Tech (6-5) automatically claimed a spot in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game on Monday when Miami self-imposed a postseason ban for the second straight year, looking to lessen the sanctions from an NCAA investigation into its compliance practices. The Hurricanes (7-4) could have clinched the Coastal Division title with a victory over Duke, which would leave both Miami and the Yellow Jackets with 5-3 conference records. The Hurricanes were positioned to win the tiebreaker since they defeated Georgia Tech 42-36 on Sept. 22.
Now, it doesn't matter. By banning itself from the bowls, Miami is ineligible to play in the Dec. 1 title game at Charlotte, N.C. "It's a great opportunity," Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson said after practice. "I'm proud of our guys. They won four conference games in a row, two of them on the road. It's a case of persevering and just keep playing." - AP Sports
08/15/12 - KEYS TO SUCCESS: The Jackets boast a veteran offensive line led by potential All-American G Omoregie Uzzi. Tech likely will average over 300 yards per game rushing, with A-back Orwin Smith (9.7 yards per carry in his career) leading the way. The Jackets want to control the ball with long scoring drives to take pressure off their vulnerable defense. - The Sports Xchange
