While most of the focus is on Georgia, Kirby Smart, and the Bulldogs up in Athens, in the heart of Atlanta, Geoff Collins is working to build something special at Georgia Tech. He's heading into his first season at the helm of Tech and the expectations vary quite widely. College Football prognosticator Phil Steele joined John Fricke and Hugh Douglas and spoke about what he expects from the Yellow Jackets.

"Let's face it. They're switching schemes drastically on offense. They've got offensive lineman that were recruited for blocking for the option and now they're going to the pro style attack. They've got quarterbacks who were recruited for the option, they had 13 scholarship running backs and they play one running back at a time in this offense," explains Phil Steele. "The receiving corp was more known for blocking than receiving, this is a pretty drastic change on offense. This is an inexperienced team on defense with just four returning starters, drastic changes on the offense, I think it will take 2 years to get there. They'll play enthusiastic football, but I find it difficult to see them getting to a bowl game this year."
