Michaux Poll: Vol. 8: Title hopefuls might get Wreck-ed

ScottMichaux.com - Mon, 11/24/2014 4:07 PM
By Scott Michaux

Bold prediction time: the most relevent team not seriously in the playoff conversation is Georgia Tech.

 

Why? Because the Yellow Jackets are capable of knocking off two top-10 teams in the next two weeks to shake things up considerably.

 

Georgia Tech is playing its best football of the season at the right time, but it was a week without playing that suddenly made them intriguing.

 

As the Jackets sat idle, players gathered to watch North Carolina clinch them the ACC Coastal Division title with a resounding upset win over former leader Duke. The Blue Devils inexplicably lost in consecutive weeks to Virginia Tech and UNC to hand Georgia Tech the keys to the title game in Charlotte.

 

Rest assured that the team least happy about this development is Florida State. The Seminoles have struggled to remain undefeated against all manner of conventional rank-and-file competition, and Paul Johnson's triple-option is the last thing they wanted to deal with as a final hurdle into the first College Football Playoffs.

 

Before then, however, Georgia Tech faces its in-state nemesis Georgia in the latest installment of "clean, old-fashioned hate." The Ramblin' Wreck has certainly hated losing 12 of 13 times to Mark Richt's Bulldogs and would like to change that dark trend.

 

Working in the Jackets' favor along with their improved play is Georgia's potential mood. Like Georgia Tech last Thursday, the Bulldogs will spend Friday night watching to see if Arkansas can topple Missouri and deliver the SEC East title to Athens. Come Saturday at noon, the Dawgs will either be high on the Hogs or down in the dumps. If the motivation gets sapped, it could be an easy path for Georgia Tech to sneak out from between the hedges with an upset victory that will rattle Seminole nation even more.

 

It's doubtful that wins over Georgia and Florida State would be enough to send Georgia Tech into the final four playoff teams. More than likely it would eliminate the ACC from the conversation and pave the way for Baylor, TCU or Ohio State to grab the last spot in the playoff field.

 

But it would be a huge accomplishment for a program that never gets enough respect.

 

As for my weekly rankings, not a whole lot changed at the top except for Ole Miss spoiling some of the Egg Bowl hype by laying a goose egg in a 30-0 humiliation at Arkansas. The rest mostly feasted on cupcakes as prelude to a defining rivalry week.

 

Rank (Prev) Team (Record) - Comment

1. (1) Alabama (10-1) - Rivalry game with Auburn will be emotional.

2. (2) Florida State (11-0) - Luck of the Seminoles prevails again vs. BC.

8. (7) Arizona State (9-2) - Defining rivalry showdown with ‘Zona on deck.

9. (10) Georgia (9-2) - Crushing Charleston Southern means little.

10. (11) Kansas State (8-2) - Keeps cruising with tough win over West Virginia.

11. (12) Michigan State (9-2) - Took out frustration on Rutgers.

12. (13) Georgia Tech (9-2) - Idle, but won ACC Coastal watching Duke lose.

13. (14) UCLA (9-2) - Shut up the L.A. upset chatter by smashing USC.

14. (15) Wisconsin (9-2) - B10 West title up for grabs vs. Minnesota.

15. (22) Arizona (9-2) - Crushes Utah to improve stature.

16. (16) Marshall (11-0) - Herd hangs on to narrowly beat UAB .

17. (17) Colorado State (10-1) - Thrashes New Mexico.

18. (19) Auburn (8-3) - Needed breather against Samford after Sanford Stadium.

19. (NR) Missouri (9-2) - All it does is keep winning (Indiana notwithstanding).

20. (9) Ole Miss (8-3) - Oh my. 30-0 drubbing by Arkansas humbling.

21. (25) Louisville (8-3) - Deals latest blow to Notre Dame’s ego.

22. (23) Boise State (9-2) - Wallops Wyoming to up Utah State finale.

23. (24) Northern Illinois (9-2) - Can clinch Mac West vs. Western Michigan.

24. (NR) Minnesota (8-3) - Rallied by Nebraska to earn shot at B10 West title.

25. (NR) Clemson (8-3) - All that matters now is what happens Saturday.

FALLING OUT

NR. (18) Nebraska (8-3) - Second straight loss comes late to Gophers.

NR. (20) Duke (8-3) - UNC trashed Coastal hopes and visiting locker room.

NR. (21) Utah (7-4) - Arizona deals humiliation at home.

Developer withdraws rezoning petition

Latest News from Columbia County News-Times - Sun, 11/23/2014 12:21 AM

Columbia County commissioners voted Tuesday to allow a developer to withdraw a petition to rezone more than 200 acres off of William Few Parkway to build a new 280-home neighborhood.

Blanchard and Calhoun Real Estate Co. was facing a determined and organized opposition to the rezoning petition from other property owners in the area, many of whom came to a Nov. 6 Planning Commission meeting to voice their concerns.

A motion to approve the rezoning, which would have altered the R-A zoning to the R-2 designation, allowing smaller lots and more dense development, failed for lack of a second at the Planning Commission meeting.

On Nov. 13, Blanchard and Calhoun President Thomas M. Blanchard Jr. sent the board a written request to withdraw the petition, which was granted.

In other business, commissioners voted to appoint nine members to the new Columbia County Develpoment Advisory Committee, which was created to replace two other advisory boards commissioners voted to dissolve last month.

Commissioners unanimously approved:

Mark Ivey, residential contractor; Steve Clifton, commercial contractor; Rob Zapata, licensed subcontractor; Bill Boatman, developer; Robert Titus, engineer; Nathan Vick, architect and design; and Mickey Lonergan, site contractor. Tim Tyler and Oliver Owens were apppointed as “citizens at large” non-voting members.

Officials expect the new board will hold its first meeting in December.

Police Blotter, Nov. 23, 2014

Latest News from Columbia County News-Times - Sun, 11/23/2014 12:21 AM

The following accounts were taken from Columbia County Sheriff’s Office incident reports:

Stolen checks cashed in Utah

Two Columbia County residents recently told authorities that their mailed checks were stolen and cashed in Utah.

A 62-year-old man said Monday that someone endorsed his $1,233.57 monthly retirement check and cashed it. The check typically arrived in his P.O. box around the first of the month. After failing to receive it, the man said he contacted the check issuer and was told it as cashed at a Wal-Mart in West Valley City, Utah. The store will release store video surveillance footage to law enforcement.

The man said he doesn’t know who may have endorsed or cashed the check or how they stole it.

A 78-year-old Grovetown woman told police a similar story on Tuesday. She said someone stole the $1,185 she receives from her late husband’s military service. The check typically arrives in the mail around the first of every month. When the check didn’t arrive, the woman called the issuer, who said it was endorsed and cashed at a different Utah Walmart store. She also has no idea how the check was stolen or who stole it.

Evans student pulls fire alarm

An Evans High School student was charged after he admitted to activating the school fire alarm on Tuesday.

The school’s assistant principal said the fire alarm at the school went off at 2:47 p.m. Tuesday. The school was evacuated and searched by Columbia County Fire Department personnel.

The student is shown on school video surveillance footage activating the alarm. He came to the office on Wednesday morning and admitted he’d activated the alarm.

The teen was arrested for transmitting a false report of a fire.

Woman hears home intruder

A Martinez woman told deputies Tuesday that someone walked into her home.

The 43-year-old woman said she heard the door to her home open at about 9 p.m. She thought it was her son opening the door for the cat.

But the woman heard a man’s voice just inside the doorway. He then ran out the door and into the woods.

The woman said she never saw the intruder and only heard him when he opened the door. She said the door was locked, but deputies found no evidence of forced entry.

Woman doused with Gatorade

A woman called authorities Tuesday after she said her ex-boyfriend poured Gatorade on her.

The woman said she left her workplace at PDQ at about 2 p.m. to go with her ex to a nearby grocery store. They argued about the clothes she was wearing.

The woman said her ex got so angry that he poured a bottle of Gatorade on her. She went back inside the restaurant and waited for her mother to arrive.

Suspicious call frightens woman

A woman said a suspicious call on her husband’s phone left her nervous.

The woman said her husband’s phone rang at about 3:15 p.m. with an unknown caller ID number, so she answered it.

She said the male caller asked if she still lived at her current address. When she didn’t answer, the caller said that he knows about her family and that she was home at the time with a baby.

The woman said she didn’t recognize the caller’s voice, but his threatening comments made her nervous.

Bulldogs hold off Knights to stay perfect

Latest News from Columbia County News-Times - Sun, 11/23/2014 12:17 AM

Tuesday night at Evans, the Harlem High School Bulldogs walked off the floor 3-0 on the young basketball season, with two wins against county rivals.

After taking control of the game early in the fourth period, the Bulldogs held off a late Evans rally, winning 68-64.

“I knew this was going to be a tough game for us, and it’s been 10 years since we’ve beaten Evans, so I’m pretty proud,” said Bulldogs’ coach Kim Chambers.

Reggie Reid paced the Bulldogs with his third triple-double of the year, scoring 23 points with 11 rebounds and 10 assists. With the Bulldogs nursing a late lead, Reid went 6 of 7 from the free-throw line. His only miss came with the Bulldogs leading 63-61 with 40 seconds to play, but Rayshun Morris was there for the offensive rebound. He was fouled and sank two free throws to stretch the lead back to four.

“That was huge,” said Evans coach Kevin Kenny. “That was the perfect situation where we wanted it. We put them on the line and they missed and fundamentally we didn’t do a god job of getting the rebound. That was definitely hard to overcome right there.”

Evans’ freshman Serron Spann drilled his third 3-pointer of the night and Harlem’s Dakota Madigan hit one of two from the charity stripe to make the Bulldogs lead 66-64 with 17 seconds left in the game.

Spann was fouled with nine seconds left and with a chance to tie missed both free throws, with Reid grabbing the rebound and salting it away with two free throws.

“It’s a tough situation for a freshman with those two free throws,” said Kenny. “He (Spann) played well, he played very well that second half and he actually gave us a lift.”

Morris scored 12 of his 19 points in the second half, which was big as senior Torien Beard fouled out at the beginning of the fourth period. “When Reggie (Reid) would dribble through and penetrate, I would just get ready to shoot and go to the hole,” said Morris.

Spann and Trevon Caberrus led the Knights (0-1) with 13 points while Michael Steflick had 12.

Free-throw shooting hurt the Knights as they finished 14 of 33 from the stripe while the Bulldogs were 14 of 21.

In girls’ play, a young Evans team saw its lone senior, Elyssa Melton, take charge as the Lady Knights beat the Lady Bulldogs (0-3) 67-16.

Starting the second period, Melton scored from all over the court, pouring in 12 of the team’s first 16 points as the Lady Knights took a 35-6 lead. She would finish with a game-high 20 points.

“This year early on her (Melton) being able to say I’m willing to take some shots from different spots on the floor, she’s my workhorse,” said Evans’ coach Ryan Morningstar, who started two freshmen, a sophomore and junior with Melton. “She’s definitely going to keep this team together.”

Freshman Kiyana Nelson showed her versatility adding 15 and junior Camille Saunders pitched in with 10.

Leah Wangness scored a team-high seven for the Lady Bulldogs. Coach Bill Madigan noted his young team will have to go through growing pains but liked the effort they put out on the floor Tuesday.

“I thought the second half we hustled more, we played a little bit harder,” Madigan said. “We have to play hard every time we’re on the court and look to improve every game and it’ll come.”
