Paul Johnson resorts to another food analogy.

He’s gone from frying fish to making dessert.

“It’s a big game,” Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson said. “Our fans definitely want to win the game. I think everybody involved wants to win. It’s a rival game. I tend to try to stay away from saying one game defines a program in a season. To this point we’ve had a really nice season. Probably better than most of you guys expected or thought we were going to have. And it would be the icing on the cake if we could find a way to go to Athens and win a game.”

Notice he can never quite bring himself to say he wants to win the game.

I guess it’s time for a new nickname.  The Baker?

    I think just Chef Johnson is fine. Has a nice double entendre to it.

    Ask any Tech fan. This game is breakfast, lunch, and dinner for them.

    And Paul knows it.

    I thought he had bigger fish to fry than us..? Don’t order those rings just yet nerds..

    What is Tech’s big win for this year? Clemson with the hurt QB, Miami or big bad Virginia Tech?

    Pillsbury Dough Boy?

    I’ve never seen a sponge cake iced.
    Time to feed the BIG DAWG!
    What Marie Antoinette said!

    The “Cupcake Maker”?

    The passive-aggressive “Probably better than most of you guys expected or thought we were going to have.” is classic Johnson. Pulling out those close wins over Ga Southern and Va Tech earn you a little chest-thumping, I guess.

    ‘Food analogy’? Well I guess salami is a food item for a douchebag, isn’t it?

    Nice rationalization by Fish Fry. He is already preparing himself for the beating. Smart man.

    “Fry King” as in; “He’s the fryking coach of the fryking NATS.”

    Miami should have beaten them. It worries me that our rivalry is voiced like it’s a done deal. This year they are more competitive and it’s hard to fathom the fryking “option spread”, especially their ground game up the middle. If we focus on saving our legs from their fryking chop blocks, that may be exactly what they want. We know the Dawgs practiced hard against that last year and probably will this year, but it has to alter ones focus to jump over them at the correct moment.

    The team just got practice against an option team, but put that in a spread O as well while detecting chop blocks against you may explain why a not-so-athletic team can be as successful as the NATS have been this year. Looking forward to Conley’s challenge infecting the team and that we hurt their widdle hearts – with prejudice. Oh, and their fryking QB can throw it beyond the line of scrimmage this year.

    Let The Big Dog Eat.

    “guess it’s time for a new nickname.”

    Cake Boss

    “Cake Boss has all the hallmarks of an amazing leader. Like Churchill.”

    or Ace of Cakes

    “Fun fact: Ace of Cakes was originally a public access cooking show called F#ck You Let’s Bake.”

    Isnt The Pillsbury, errrr, North Avenue Doughboy applicable? Nothin’ equals lovin’, like another Bulldog drubbin’…….and Paul Johnson takes it best!

    No amount of points is good enough against these vermin folks. 51-7? No, not even close. Complete destruction is needed and then to have The Johnson get a contract extension would be the cherry on top.
