A columnist points out that an ACC school that finishes its season with the Georgia Bulldogs is done with the difficult part of its schedule.
The remainder of their opponents are set up like bowling pins: Virginia (2-3), Vanderbilt (2-4), Wake Forest (4-2), Duke (3-3), Georgia (3-3). I’ll let you try to figure out which is the strongest of that bunch right now.
It gets worse.
I say this: Win this game and Georgia Tech is on a path to at least a top-1o finish in the rankings, possibly higher. After this game, Tech will be past the difficult part of its schedule. The Jackets also have three things working for them that the school just down 316 doesn’t right now: a starting quarterback (Josh  Nesbitt) who is making plays and improving by the week; an offensive line that is knocking people over; and a belief among players that they belong on the same field with everybody else (with snapshots of the scoreboard to back it up).
