2011 Georgia Tech Football Schedule: Taking A Look At Opponents' Bye Weeks

New, 1 comment

One of the best ways to take a look at the strength of a schedule is to see who opponents play the week before. In addition, one of the knocks (true or not) of Paul Johnson's offense is that it struggles when the other team has more time to prepare. So not surprisingly, Georgia Tech fans are always interested to see what opponents are up to the week before playing the triple option.

Good news Tech fans. Only four teams have extra time to prepare for the Jackets, and that includes Western Carolina (season opener), NC State (two extra days), Virginia, and Virginia Tech (same bye week as Georgia Tech).
