Early lead was key in Tech’s win at UNC

The Hokies went on the road and beat North Carolina on Saturday, knocking the Tar Heels out of the Coastal Division race in the first week of October.  Here’s how the race is shaping up…

Georgia Tech: 5-0, 2-0
UVA: 4-2, 2-0
VT: 4-2, 1-1
Pitt: 3-3, 1-1
Miami: 3-3, 1-2
Duke: 4-1, 0-1
UNC: 2-3, 0-2

Georgia Tech has two huge wins against Coastal foes Virginia Tech and Miami.  We need them to drop a couple of games at some point.  Preferably three games, as it’s doubtful the Hokies will make it through the rest of their schedule unscathed.

There’s still a lot of football left to be played.  I’m more concerned with how this team plays on a week to week basis than I am about the Coastal.  If we’re good enough, we’ll make it.  If we aren’t, then we won’t.  That’s the bottom line.
