Live Blog From Miami will blog live beginning at 7 p.m. from Land Shark Stadium during Georgia Tech’s game against Iowa at the 2010 FedEx Orange Bowl in Garden City, Fla. Fans will have the chance to interact by submitting questions during the game. We are live from the Land Shark Stadium press box. 78 minutes until kickoff. Check out some photos from pre-game: Gallery
Dave: What is the temp down there? @Dave it’s a brisk 50 degrees here right now. Weather shouldn’t be a factor in the game, but the folks in the stands are definitely bundled up. The forecast calls for the temps to keep dropping during the course of the game, so we’ll probably be in the low 40’s by 11p. Tech has just completed warmups and is huddled at midfield right now. Tech is headed to the locker room now, and countdown clock is just under 36 minutes.
ATL: Wish more Tech fans were there, they keep talking about all the Iowa fans 🙁
acworth,ga: GO JACKETS!!!!!! The stadium is starting to fill up as the Iowa band begins their pregame perfomance. Iowa fans have been everywhere all week in Miami, but GT fans have certainly shown up for the game. Several people have mentioned flights to Ft. Lauderdale and Miami have been full of white and gold today.
Chase Lambert: Can Tech prevail against the defense of Iowa? Lets hope so!! GO JACKETS!!!!!!!!! The Georgia Tech marching band has taken the field, as the game clock slowly nears 27 minutes. Iowa has entered the inflatable “cave” in the end zone and is preparing to take the field. Land Shark Stadium is one of those buildings where both teams enter the field from the same tunnel, so Tech is right behind them. And here come the JACKETS!!!! Official gametime temp is 49 degrees, and the wind is 9mph. This is officially coldest the Orange Bowl ever (57 degrees in 2008). Gametime temp in Iowa City is 4 degrees, while Atlanta is 28 degrees. That was Tech’s first punt since third quarter of the Duke game. If you’re watching at home, Fox is about 10 seconds behind live action. Nesbitt has now moved over the 1,000-yard rushing mark for this season. Tarrant’s touchdown on the interception return was Tech’s fourth non-offensive score this season. All four have been by Tarrant (two punt returns and a fumble return).
Susan: Have we ever been down by 14 in the 1st quarter before? @Susan GT had not trailed by two touchdowns in the first quarter this year. Tonight’s attendance is 66,131 Some first half Tech stats: rushing yards–49; passing yards–0; avg yards per play–2.4 Tech is 0-for-5 on third downs. The Jackets have punted 5 times tonight after punting only 28 times this season. That last play of the half dropped the Jackets to just 32 yards of offense in the first half. The Jackets’ specialists are back out on the field warming up for the second half as the halftime stage is being dismantled. The game clock is at 4:30.
Colin – Smyrna: What is Tarrant’s status? any chance he comes back? @Colin Tarrant had the wind knocked out of him, so he should be back After the touchdown drive, Dwyer now has 60 yards rushing tonight and Nesbitt 43. Team total is up to 151 rushing yards. 119 of that has come in the second half.
