Here’s something else to fret about.
If this turns into a shootout type of game, the Bulldogs do have enough artillery on offense to keep up, but they’ll need to make the most of possessions given that the Yellow Jackets are good at holding on to the football offensively for long stretches of time.
Can I say this doesn’t bother me as much as it does others?
Last year, Georgia spotted Tech a 20-point lead. If there was ever a time when Tech’s vaunted control over time of possession would lead to an easy win, that was it.
Except, of course, it didn’t.
And then there was the 2010 game. Tech ran 92 plays to Georgia’s 48. Tech controlled the clock for a ridiculous 38:14. And, you guessed it, still managed to lose a game in which Mike Bobo’s playcalling managed to drive me nuts.
Bobo is better at what he does now. Georgia Tech isn’t.
