It’s Georgia Tech! You can’t do that.

You gotta love this quote from the genius:  “You can’t keep laying the damn ball on the ground and expect to win. It’s not rocket science.”

But, wait… isn’t Georgia Tech… supposed to be good… at science…

Ah, hell, forget about it.

    I liked his quote about not beating Clemson in a while. “Who has?”

      I liked ““It’s not the end of the world if you have to punt,” too. He’s not even mailing it in at this point.

    Next thing you know they’ll have a QB that can’t count to 4.

    If some brave sideline reporter is willing to trade his (or her) life, career-wise, for the Genius’s, all he (or she) has to do is catch PJ slinking off the field after the beat down and hold out the microphone and ask “So Coach, who gets the buck this week?”

      ^Not only this, but you know it’s the case because the man has not adjusted or tweaked his coaching style, his plays, or his precious “offense” pretty much ever. It’s clearly his thinking just in that fact alone that he’s perfected the art of football and everyone else is screwing it up.

        Yep, towards the end, he just has to take a parting shot at the defense. He simply cannot help himself. He’s pathological.
        “… you also don’t have to let them go 89 yards and score with six minutes left in the game.”

      So, say, how closely do they screen their callers?

    Of course this has nothing to do with the system or the quality of athletes he recruits.

      Exactly. I was watching the replay of their game with Pitt and the middle linebackers resembled walk-on level players compared to upper level teams. They were undersized, but they made up for it by being slow and not terribly athletic.

    Tech’s Triple Option:

    Option One: Whore out the cheerleaders and Flagboy on Tenth St. for buyout money.

    Option Two: Change name of call-in show to “Passing the Buck with Fat Pepper”. Hope this goads PJ into fireable offense.

    Option Three: Lowered Expectations: you can do that!

        Over the summer I found an old DVD of the 2007 game and watched it. They were talking on the broadcast about Gailey’s imminent firing. Gailey won seven pretty much every year and went to a bowl every year. He was 44-32 at tech. Fired. Ten years later their coach went 5-6, two years after going 3-9, and got a big extension. He’s 43-37 over the last six years. Hey, tech had to put a ring on that, right?

        He has truly transformed expectations on the Flats.

    I’m inclined to shake my head and quietly agree with fishfry. The alternative is that people are gonna wake up to just how lousy a job he’s doing and demand he be replaced. While I’d enjoy the brief media scorn, a replacement might result in problems for us down the road. So consider me in full agreement with him throwing his players and assistants under the bus on a daily basis.

    It has always amazed me how Johnson dogs his players as if he didn’t recruit them and currently coach them.

    That’s probably one of the few schools in the country where the football skills:rocket science analogy is actually flipped on its head.

    I bet there is some physics professor on campus today telling his students “look guys, it’s not like this is football fundamentals or anything”.

    Paul’s system is really tough to play for the first few times or with a lack of prep time. The problem for them is they have doing the same exact thing for for 10 years and every team in the ACC division with them knows whats coming and most of them have better players. There is no reason we should have ever lost to GT over this time.

    I truly hate the nerds, but I hope they beat Clemson, mostly so that Coach Paul Johnson will keep his job for another couple years

      Horrible for the ACC, and that’s gotta be at least another 5 years for PJ.

      If that happens…tomorrow all of the normally hidden GT fans will be all decked out in their GT regalia at church tomorrow. They will be having conversations about how GT is back!
      It will be annoying, but yeah..it would be great for the reason you mention and what muckbeast said too!
