One of the most important parts of any election is assuring that there is an informed constituency. As you can see, coming to the Tar Pit this afternoon is the Georgia Tech Ramblin’ Wreck. Personally, I feel like it is my civic duty to give you—the concerned fan—the cold, hard facts about our opponent so that you can come to your own conclusions.
Here is what you need to know:
Georgia Institute of Technology is a public university located in Atlanta, Georgia. Its abbreviation “GT” moonlights as Goodyear Tire and Rubber Company in the New York Stock Exchange. Believe it or not, Georgia Tech is actually one of the best schools in the nation academically. It is even ranked number seven in U.S. News & World Report’s rankings of the nation’s best public schools. You know you have a good school when you are only two spots behind the University of North Carolina.
A Yellow Jacket is pretty self-explanatory.
Paul Johnson is an American house DJ. Although born in 1971 as Paul Leighton Johnson, over the course of his illustrious career he has also become known as “The P.J. Project”, “Pilly P.”, “Smooth Stan Smith”, and “Yonkapin.” You probably know him from his Billboard chart-topping club mix, “Get Get Down.”
If you actually do know him from that, you just gave yourself away. You like to party.
The triple option offense is… well… okay I am not going to lie; I have no idea. But let me make an educated guess. I do know that “triple threat” is a position in basketball. There is a guard, a center, a forward, a white role player, and then a triple threat. Contrarily, I also know that an “option” is the thing that you do not have when you are deciding whether or not to go to 6:30 lift on Tuesday and Thursday mornings.
Between those two pieces of background knowledge, it should be clear that I still have no way of making an educating guess. I suppose the only thing left to do is to do what I do on multiple choice questions in school that I don’t know the answer to: fill in all the bubbles but then lightly erase them so it is hard to distinguish which answer I really gave.
Vad Lee is just another redshirt freshman quarterback from North Carolina looking for an opportunity to make his presence felt in this world. I feel your struggle Vad.
Well that will do it for this weeks scouting report. Obviously, we have our hands full this afternoon. Before I go, I would like to introduce all of you Crib Callers to a new website. This site is like nothing you have ever seen before. Okay, not quite. Actually, it is very much like something that you have seen before. The site I am sharing with you is actually made in honor of the website you are on right now. Your wildest dream come true, I know. I don’t want to give everything about it away, but just know that it is pretty freakin sweet. I realize that another site in honor of this site seems like one of my frequent ploys to make myself seem more awesome than I really am. Have no doubt about it, that is something that I would definitely do. However, this time someone else beat me to the punch. I have never met the creator of this site, but I do know they are Crib Callers just like the rest of us here, so they have my respect.
World, I give you http://whatcalebsaid.wordpress.com/
Lastly, for those of you who did not see it, Crib Calls was featured on the front page of the sports section of the Daily Tar Heel the Friday before we played State. The article is now up for every serious journalism award that there is from the European Press Prize to the Pultizer; however, none of this would have been possible if it wasn’t for its author—Marilyn Payne. Marilyn just happens to come from a little place called Asheville, North Carolina. She has been running unopposed for this week’s Crib Call since the article was published. It was only a matter of time. Marilyn Payne, you are CRIB!!

Until next time,
P.S. For all of you who were asking about my Halloween costume, I did not forget about you.
