CFN’s Georgia Tech preview is a real treat.
It’s becoming increasingly evident that the Yellow Jackets just might have peaked after all in 2009.
Georgia Tech won 11 games and the Atlantic Coast Conference five years ago, helping make head coach Paul Johnson the toast of Atlanta for a brief time. Since then, the school has gone 23-25 versus FBS opponents, making Johnson’s seat, well, toasty. The Jackets are clearly stuck in neutral, with no end to the mediocrity in plain sight. In a decision that was both symbolic and immediately impactful to the current squad, starting QB Vad Lee voluntarily decided in January that his career would benefit from a transfer to FCS James Madison.
The best part of that is Georgia Tech’s peak still included a loss to one of Richt’s weakest squads. Simply Chantastic.
