Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Football 10-year Review

College Sports Fans reviews the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, one of the NCAA's top athletic programs

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Football

For the most part, Georgia Tech has been a fairly consistent team over the last ten seasons. Between 1999 and 2005 the Yellow Jackets never won more than nine games and never lost less than seven; a respectable, especially in a strong ACC conference. 1998 was the programs strongest year, finishing tied atop the conference thanks to the stellar play of quarterback and future All-American Joe Hamilton. After four straight seasons of .500 play in conference though, Georgia Tech is starting to rebuild. In 2005 they finished third in the Coastal Division, and won the division last season.

Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Football Future Outlook

There is no reason to think that Georgia Tech can't make another run at the ACC title this season. Granted the loss of All-American wide receiver Calvin Johnson to the NFL hurts, but a total of 49 letterwinners are back for the Yellow Jackets. Running back Tashard Choice led the ACC in rushing last year and should be the feature offensive weapon in Georgia Tech's attack. Linebacker Phillip Wheeler will be the man to watch on defense; he has already been named to the Bronko Nagurski watch list. Tech’s incoming class is also a talented one that should keep them competitive for the next several years. Nine players in their class of ’07 are ranked in the top 20 nationally at their position according to
