This can only mean one thing.

Georgia Tech dropped its seventh game of the season last night.  Mark Bradley shares a sad with the genius.

1. Paul Johnson, a coaching lifer, appeared shaken after this loss. “I don’t think I’ve ever had a season like this,” he said. His Yellow Jackets, who were ranked No. 12 in the land and favored at Notre Dame on Sept. 19, are 3-7 and cannot finish in anything better than a last-place tie in a division they were picked to win. Several of those losses have been of the excruciating variety, but this was the worst. Tech lost three second-half fumbles, dropped a third-down pass that would have garnered a first down and saw a potential winning drive aborted by an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. Johnson’s offense was limited to 258 yards and didn’t score a point after the first quarter. For the sixth time this season, the Jackets lost as a betting favorite. Good grief.

Even if Tech wins out, with that fan base, it’s not going bowling.  So, inevitably…

Georgia will get Georgia Tech’s best shot.

You heard it here first.

Bonus amusement:  Tech’s bowl streak is over, which means this is the kind of year the Jackets haven’t had since Bill Lewis was in charge, but what’s got the gang at StingTalk riled up is that David Pollack got to take a ride in the Rambling Wreck yesterday.

Hey, it’s Georgia Tech.  He can do that.

“Just said he didn’t want to play anymore…”

A philosophical question:  if a Georgia Tech wide receiver fell in the woods quit the team, would he make a sound?

Georgia Tech football marketing is still Chantastic.

Good times on the Flats: remembering Reggie Ball

Now that Georgia Tech’s come back to earth with two straight losses, the denizens of StingTalk can get back to arguing about what’s really important.

Paul Johnson, ladies and gentlemen. He’ll be here all season. Try the veal.

Sure, the book “The Comic Stylings of Paul Johnson” is awfully thin.  But I know funny, and I have to admit this qualifies.


Win a few games and your sense of humor shows up.

If you can’t cut, you can’t play.

Ah, August practice, when green football players hone the skills necessary to make them regular contributors to their team’s success.

And at Georgia Tech, there’s one special skill that’s gotta be worked on.

Willis, a walk-on who has been put on scholarship for the academic year, said that freshmen are showing more understanding of the offense through their ability to recognize and communicate play calls made on the line of scrimmage.

“I think everybody’s learning (to block),” he said. “We’ve just got to learn when to cut, when not to cut. I feel like Mikell’s a bigger guy, so he’s been looking good. TaQuon, he can get guys on the ground. … I feel like we’re all coming together.”

Yeah, because nothing builds team cohesion on the Flats like going after opponents’ knees.
