Last year, the Confidential unveiled over-unders for each ACC school. For Georgia Tech, the over-under was set at 8.5 regular season wins. Ultimately, the Yellow Jackets struggled mightily, ending up with just 3 regular season wins. But now it is on to 2016. The Confidential sets the over-under for Georgia Tech at 5.5 regular season wins.
Here is the schedule for 2016, courtesy of a great football site:
Very likely wins: Mercer, Georgia Southern, Virginia
Very likely losses: Clemson, Georgia
Verdict: Georgia Tech struggled badly last year. Despite beating Florida State somehow, the Yellow Jackets were unable to do much of anything else. Perhaps Paul Johnson is even on the hot seat. In looking for very likely wins, it was a stretch. Even Georgia Southern could pull the upset. But the odds are that Georgia Tech will do better. Law of averages. Plus, a bowl game is far from unrealistic, with potential wins over Boston College, Mercer, Vanderbilt, Georgia Southern, Virginia and Duke at home. Will that happen? Maybe, maybe not. We’ll set the over/under at 5.5 regular season wins.
What do you think? Will Georgia Tech go over or under 5.5 regular season wins?
