Wednesday Links

Another Wednesday is here. Hump day. Only a few days before heading down to Atlanta. Meantime, here are some links.

In Blacksburg this week, many reporters covering the Hokies have been asking about Georgia Tech's triple-option offense. But the big topic among those who follow the Yellow Jackets is their recent defensive woes. Although Georgia Tech has tried to switch its schemes and move players around, its defensive coordinator, Dave Wommack, has gone with a different tack to try to spur some improvement. He's simply told his players to have fun.

In other Georgia Tech news, a plan was nixed for the Yellow Jackets to meet the rival Georgia Bulldogs at the Georgia Dome. "After careful consideration, we did not think in the final analysis it was in the best interest of our football program," Georgia Athletic Director Damon Evans said in a statement Tuesday night.

In a article in Wednesday's editions of The Post, I wrote about Coach Paul Johnson's option offense. It's a difficult-to-defense scheme that has given defensive coordiantors fits. But hearing Johnson explain it, it doesn't sound that bad, does it? Okay, maybe it does. You be the judge.
