Wow. It’s never pretty watching somebody give up on his idol. Check out what Mark Bradley had to say about the game the genius called in last night’s less than scintillating loss to Virginia Tech:
This failure went higher than the starting quarterback. This wretched performance falls on Johnson. He designed this system. He recruited these players. He didn’t have them primed for this prime-time tilt, and near the end he nearly blew the game by himself.
Eight-plus minutes left, the Jackets down 17-10, fourth-and-2 at their 33: This is the place in a Tech game when we wits in the press box nod to one another and say, “Paul probably wants to go for this.” Only Johnson did more than want. HE WENT FOR IT. Knowing full well that failure would put Virginia Tech in position to kick the field goal that would ice the game, HE WENT FOR IT.
That’s a long way down from this. Hope Bradley can survive the pressure drop.
