The 24-minute rule

Kirby’s usual rule is allowing the team to have a day to celebrate a win.  With regard to Massachusetts, it sounds like the team finished the celebration before it even left the locker room after the game.

You’d better be.  The smug is coming. ($$)

“To Hell with Georgia,” said Jalen Johnson, a senior linebacker.

“I played there one time, and I’m 1-0,” added Brad Stewart, a senior receiver. “It was a good feeling tearing those hedges at the end.”

Time to get your hate on, folks.

  2. Lots of worrying going on after the lax defensive effort and the surprising emergence of a 7-4 Tech team. I dont think Kirby or the team is looking ahead, but we are at yet another game where the other team has nothing to lose and we have everything to lose. I hope we are dialed in.

      I wouldn’t say we have everything to lose. It’s one game that only means something to the fans. Folks, we ain’t going to the CFP. I’ve dialed down my expectations to a nice Sugar Bowl win over Oklahoma, win or lose next Saturday.

    I think I will stroll on over to stingtalk and read some threads about them hoping they injure some of our players to get my blood boiling

    Gonna have to out score’em. Defense scares the shat outta me…..young, not a good showing (UMASS), a different offense, no Georgia Southern to help prepare. I’m sure Tech is licking their chops…

  7. So I just heard Monty Rice didn’t play because he got hurt pregame. Is this true and how bad is the injury thought to be? I wondered where he was last night and heard this from a friend this morning. Definitely gonna need his against the option.

    I’m sorta thinking that tech will have a different approach than throwing it to the nation’s leading receiver 15 times for 219, but yeah…defense.

    I tend to think we’re in good shape for what they bring IF we handle the dive. That’s always the key. If we can limit the dive, we’ll beat the hell out of them. If not it’ll be a shoot out and I don’t think they’ll have many answers for our offense.

    Dawgs win by 20 minimum.

    Stopping Paul Johnson’s offense is the same as it ever was:
    1. Do not line up in an even front. They will run the mid-line option and it will go for 4 yards. The center has to be covered.
    2. Stop the dive. If you are the D-lineman being optioned on the dive play, attack the B-back at the mesh point. Make the QB keep it.
    3. Hit the QB as hard as you can. It doesn’t matter if he just pitched the ball; try to knock out his teeth. An option QB that has taken several big hits will make bad reads on the dive and will the pitch the ball early.
    4. You can’t play assignment football against this offense. You spill the play to the outside until reinforcements arrive.

    Bad reads and early pitches lead to turnovers and running plays that go for minus six yards.

      This and this especially.

      • I’d add this: as long as they are running laterally, we’re winning. That offense is actually designed to go straight ahead as often and quickly as possible.

        The more they are running East-West, the better.

        Also, when there is a pitch, aim directly for the pitch man’s dick. See if he can keep his eyes and and his feet moving when a helmet is coming at his junk.

  16. Don’t turn the ball over, and we beat tech. Period. In all 3 of the losses to fish fry, we had crippling turnovers.

      In all 3 of our losses to Fish Fry, we had a DC that was facing his offense for the first time: Willie in 2008, Pruitt in 2014, and Tucker in 2016. I do not expect Kirby to lose to Johnson again before Johnson is replaced. We can only hop that they hold on to him long enough for use to beat their streak.
