GA Tech Season Odds

After a successful 2008 season, the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets look to take the next step in 2009 and make a run in the ACC.

In his first season at Georgia Tech, Paul Johnson led the Yellow Jackets to a 9-4 overall record and a 5-3 record in the ACC. They capped off the season with a disappointing performance in the Chick-fil-A Bowl, losing to LSU 38-3.

Running back Jonathan Dwyer, who rushed for 1,395 yards last season, is set to return to the GA Tech backfield in 2009. Quarterback Josh Nesbitt (808 passing yards) and receiver Demaryius Thomas (627 receiving yards) al so return.

Defensively, GA Tech will welcome back safety Morgan Burnett, who compiled 93 tackles and seven interceptions last year, as well as defensive end Derrick Morgan, who amassed seven sacks in ’08. Morgan’s fellow defensive end, Michael Johnson, will not return in ’09 after being selected in April’s NFL draft.

Oddsmakers from online sports book Sportsbook.com have made Georgia Tech a 50/1 long shot to win the 2010 BCS National Championship. The Yellow Jackets could have issues getting pressure on the quarterback this season, which in turn could affect how well the secondary performs. That said, Tech’s linebacker corps of Anthony Barnes, Sedric Griffin and Kyle Jackson is solid, and Burnett leads an above average secondary.

The running back duo of Dwyer and Roddy Jones is excellent and should once again be the backbone of Tech’s offense. Nesbitt is also a decent runner, although he had trouble reading the option at times last year.

Georgia Tech certainly is a sleeper candidate in ’09, although the Jackets will have to produce wins over Clemson and Miami earlier in the year to prove that they’re a legit contender.
