Let’s face it. There can only be one possible explanation for a 32-point blowout, and it’s not that Paul Johnson suddenly forgot how to coach. That leaves only one suspect… er, suspects.
Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson said he could have handled losing 42-10 to Georgia if he thought the effort was worthy. That was not the case.
Johnson said the Yellow Jackets were guilty of a “lack of competing” in their loss to the Bulldogs in Athens, Tech’s 11th in the past 12 years to its archrival. This season, Johnson has been critical of the team for missed assignments, poor tackling and lack of focus. However, his public challenge that the team lacked competitiveness – against an archrival, no less – compared only to his statement that the Jackets “no showed” in the 21-point loss to Middle Tennessee State.
So Johnson wants everyone to know the Tech coaching staff gives out lots of demerits for lack of effort on a play. Maybe they ought to make ‘em helmet stickers, so we can all join in the fun.
It’s hard to believe that recruits don’t flock to the Flats these days.
