Q: You’re a BCS coach. What’s one team you don’t want to face this fall (not including defending national champion Florida)?
Hayes: Georgia Tech. Good luck to any defense/defensive coordinator that hasn’t had either a full offseason or a full month before a bowl to prepare for the triple option-based offense.
Tech embarrassed numerous teams last fall when the entire personnel on offense—from the line, to the quarterback, to the running backs—didn’t really get the intricacies and nuances of the scheme. As good as fullback Jonathan Dwyer was last season, wait and see how many more big runs he breaks this fall.
