The football team for the Georgia Institute of Technology, also known as the Yellow Jackets. They compete in the ACC at the FBS level. One of the most storied programs in college football history, the Yellow Jackets have won four national championships and have been coached by such greats as John Heisman, Bobby Dodd, William Alexander, and Paul Johnson. They have a fierce rivalry with the University of Georgia known as "Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate."
Calvin Johnson consistently reps Georgia Tech football on the next level by making an endless stream of highlight plays.
An ACC college football program in downtown Atlanta. Most of the fans could never get in GTech if they tried, and those who can either dont know anything about football or flunk out in freshmen year.
Almost a century ago when nobody even cared about football other than Michigan and OSU, Tech was headed by coach Heisman. They won 3 of their 4 Natl titles before '53. In recent years the Yellow Jackets have been dominated by their rival UGA, losing 7 straight times '91-97 and '01-07 until the 2008 season in a fluke 3 point victory. Most fans talked crap for a full year afterwards, even though a month later they were blown out 38-3 in the Chik-Fil-A bowl by LSU, which UGA beat by 14 pts @ Baton Rouge.
Techs 2009 dream team under Paul Johnson lost once again at home to UGAs worst team of the decade (not to mention UGAs star offensive player didnt even play). Georgia Tech then went on to lose in the 2009 Orange Bowl (they did have a good record because they play mostly weak ACC teams) to Iowa, and the dream team was dead after nearly all the teams talent went pro in the 2010 NFL draft.
Georgia Tech football had their best team in 50 years for 2009 season, but Georgia still raped them and then all of Tech's talent went pro...end of story
