Just like on the Intertubes, sometimes it’s difficult to tell the difference between the two when Paul Johnson’s mouth is engaged:
Georgia Tech is a 6-point underdog to Georgia and has lost nine of its last 10 to the Bulldogs. After practice Monday, Tech coach Paul Johnson sarcastically played the woe-is-us card.
“They’ve got a heck of a team,” Johnson said. “Won nine in a row, SEC East champs. Hopefully we can stay with them.”
Johnson interrupted a question about his players not needing much motivation this week by saying they are “probably scared.”
And why would that be?
Said Johnson, “We haven’t beaten them in a long time.”
Of course, we shouldn’t discount the possibility that he’s being both honest and sarcastic at the same time. The man’s a genius, you know.
