“I don’t think I’ve ever been in a game where you run 90 plays, get 655 yards and lose.”

You lost to a coach who uses a friggin’ trash can as a motivational tool, genius.

Best get used to the feeling.

    Last year, we blow a late lead after dominating game and it’s because he’s the genius. What’s the excuse now……….such a tech way to lose. Love it.

    Noticed all the backs except the FB ran with the ball untucked.

      A game-ending Tennessee turnover will be stuffed in that trash can before season’s end.

  5. Tech blowing a lead and losing because their coach was too smart by half is how all Labor Days should end.

    Every time Fish Fry gets too lippy, karma kicks him in the ass.

    As a meteor game, it had everything. Angst, pain, Karma, crushed expectations, tears of pain, a wonderful sense that eventually one of them was going to lose. I must admit, I was actually hoping UT would pull it out, then felt guilty about it. Perfect. I couldn’t have asked for more.

    • I watched a little bit of the game and turned it off knowing either Booch’s hot seat would be officially lit or Fish Fry would be mumbling about losing. Therefore, I went to bed happy.

    I wish I had a dollar for every time Fish Fry lost a game because of bad coaching, rather than effort from his players.

    I wish both teams could’ve lost last night.

    Going to be a long year for Fish Fry if you depend on a small qb running 40+ times a game…genius

    I always enjoy reading their comments. “if we just scored more points we would have won!” “moral victory!”, “I’m proud we ran up 600 yards.” “If we had done x,y, and z we would have won!” What losers.

    Brooch still has that horseshoe up his ass. If Mitchell doesn’t go down for one series late, GT wins. And as disappointed that I am that the meteor didn’t show up, I thought fish fry did the right thing going for 2. It was inevitable sooner or later…his D was tired and it comes down to making.a play…one play..always in OT. But yes…Tn was bad…and won ugly knowing GT could have kicked for the tie . All the nerds had a late, sleepless night, and know they have a one man team. TN is embarrassing with their shit can . Perfect.

      They keep running that man like that and they’ll have a 0-man team by the time October rolls around. Even in that dreadful offense, I don’t think there’s a player in the country that can sustain toting the rock nearly 40 times a game.

        Looked like the kid dislocated his shoulder late – they later said it was a stinger – but nonetheless, I can’t imagine running a guy that size 35 times a game.

      Agreed Ugly. I think Bootch got Malzahn’s four leaf clover and shoved up his own ass.

    • I’m not buying the GT was tired excuse as the reason for CPJ going for 2 in the 2nd OT. The UT defense was on the field for what, 50+ minutes overall? I believe CPJ made another blunder- MAKE UT beat you after you controlled them all night, don’t give them an avenue for beating you on a bad- and not required 2 point play. Take your chances on 2-pt conversions in the 3rd OT.

        I agree. Tech was the team in offensive control during OT. I don’t think UT could have stopped them four plays in a row. Should have just waited for the vols to make a mistake.

          Tech had an unreliable freshman kicker; they’d have won in regulation if he could hit a chip shot. Sound familiar to anyone?

          “Tech was the team in offensive control during OT”…Then why not go for 2? It’s coming down to it sooner or later. The Tech QB was out of gas and couldn’t go another round. Tennessee hadn’t been able to stop GT for no gain all night. CPJ just cut to the chase and lost. I’d say eight times out of ten they convert that…Booch is living a charmed life.

        The way it was going, the first team to not convert a two pointer loses. It was coming down to having to make a two pointer. By going for it then, if you make it you win. If you kick the PAT, score on your next possession and get 2, Tennessee has the opportunity to match you. It was a good gamble but PJ lost it..but had he kicked the PAT,a the 2 point gamble was going to keep repeating itself until someone lost. He lost…Butch is a lucky ass.

    Tennessee looked bad, and extremely lucky to win. Tech will kill that QB running him like that. Their fullback looked good, but they always do. They certainly don’t have a kicker. That last one was tipped, but it wasn’t going anywhere near the goal posts anyway. Shank City, just like the previous one.

    If the great plan of ‘The Genius’ is to run Marshall 45+ times a game, for the rest of the season, he’s going to get that kid decapitated before long. Miami, Clem(p)son, and UGA all have defensive players big, fast, and strong enough to wipe that kid out, cut-blocks be damned.

    Was it just me or did GT’s defenders look like a group of midgets? Tough little midget’s but real short. I’ve seen taller players in high school.

    Ps sorry about the midget thing, I meant to say vertically challenged.

    Paul Johnson does not have the look of a college football head coach. When I look at Paul Johnson I think of a some who sells or rents Andy Gump’s for a living.
