Andrea Adelson’s touching “you just gotta, ACC” beg is highlighted by a finger pointing in the wrong direction.
“Winning would help the league a lot but it’s going to be how does the media portray it?” Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson said.
Gee, Coach, it doesn’t take a genius to see that you guys haven’t exactly given the media a lot to work with:
The last time Florida State, Georgia Tech and Clemson swept their SEC rivals was in 2000. The last time they posted a winning record against them was in 2008, when Georgia Tech and Clemson came out victorious. That also happens to be the last time both teams won their SEC rivalry game.
Adelson notes that Saturday isn’t a situation where Tech can’t afford to lose. Still, a win would be nice for the Jackets.
“The atmosphere is different about this week because it’s a must-win game,” Georgia Tech safety Jamal Golden said. “You don’t want to give them bragging rights for the next 365 days. You just have to hear it over and over again that you can’t beat them. It’s one of those games you look forward to playing.”
Hmmm… sounds like the voice of experience talking.
