I had to bring that picture back out of retirement. Continuing in our Q&A series (although it's been a little while...), we got the chance to talk to the excellent Georgia Tech blog From The Rumble Seat. We answered some of their questions over there, so definitely check it out. Here are their answers to ours.
It is a slight concern. However with the way the offense is rolling right now plus our defensive adjustments, we [the fans] feel almost invincible. Since the Miami debacle in late mid-September, the Jackets have allowed only 7, 14, 9, 20, 3, and 3 points in the 2nd half respectably. While those numbers are fairly comforting, we have still seen a lot of missed tackles and overall poor play in the 2nd half. Like you said however, our offense has put up 14, 14, 21, 21, 21, and 28 points in the 2nd half. So we're nervous but confident thanks to our offense. We kinda feel like we'll give up some points but at this point our offense is so efficient it doesn't matter.
I think Wommack's key will be stopping the run. Wake, like Tech, is all about time of possession and protecting the football. The key to winning that battle is stopping Wake's running game and getting the WFU offense off the field. We want to force predictable playcalling by forcing long 3rd downs against Wake. All in all, we really don't know what our defense is planning or if they even plan on playing Saturday. We kinda just hope that we score 40 points and the 00:00 flashes on the jumbotron with GT in the lead. If Wake wants to play in a track meet, we'll let 'em. If Wake only wants to score 20 points, then good luck to ya.

5.) Be honest. Are you worried at all about this game?
