Time for the report card on the Jackets’ effort Saturday in Charlottesville, Va., against the Virginia Cavaliers. Rate the team on the following four categories: offense, defense, special teams and coaching.
What grade would you give the Jackets' offense?
What grade would you give the Jackets' defense?
What grade would you give the Jackets' special teams?
What grade would you give the Jackets' coaches?

I won’t say it like others have.
I think that the rain slowed Tech down a lot in the first half. The OL still isn’t blocking in the middle very well. The defense stiffended up in the red zone, but I think that the short field helps along with UVAs below average receiving corp.
October 24th, 20094:36 pm
I’ll say it. CT_Jacket was first.
October 24th, 20094:40 pm
On a scale of 1-10 I would give the Techsters an overall 8. With regard to the comment about the blocking in the middle, I think the Collins kid (#98) had something to do with that. Go Jackets!

Congratulations on a big win for the Yellow Jackets. Tech’s offense wore down UVA’s defense in the second half and made them pay for it. UVA’s offense is the worst in D-I, so let’s not get too giddy about the defense today. Don’t get me wrong, they played their a$$ off today and held them to 9 points and they were particularly stout inside the 5 yd line. Too many wide open receivers that couldn’t catch the ball. Brad Jefferson played his a$$ off today.
I am proud of our Jackets and truly believe they are coached up. PJ and his staff get the most out of these young men and have them believing in themselves. It is something I haven’t seen on the Flats since the 60’s.
Thank you Coach Johnson and your staff for bringing respectability back to our program.

In halfway through his second year, CPJ has defeated *EVERY TEAM* he has played – sans LSU. Simply remarkable! With CPJ at the helm, DRAD orchestrating the athletics, the top-rated hoops recruit and a promising hoops season (hopefully Hewitt’s last), it is a SWEET time to be a fan of the Ramblin’ Wreck!
October 24th, 20094:55 pm
Done in a driving rain, for most of the game! I was so proud! Did you notice the time of possession? Tech had the ball 43 minutes, UVA 17. That’s Paul Johnson ball control.
GO JACKETS !!!
Yea, GO TECH!!!!
Can’t wait ’til after Thanksgiving!!
the real Old Gold
October 24th, 20095:01 pm
GO TIGERS! Beat the thUgs!
October 24th, 20095:11 pm
@ 5:08pm There no F grades today for the Yellow Jackets, I really appreciate the great play all around. It was a team effort. Keep it up! Don’t quit.
It’s good to be a Yellow Jacket. Ramblin Wreck!
October 24th, 20095:15 pm
Did you see J Dwyer lay that guy out after escaping the grip of another guy who grabbed him in the backfield? 7 defenders put hands on him before he was finally brought down…Our backs WERE STUDS today! What pride this team has brought upon itself and the city and oh by the way THE STATE OF GEORGIA !!!! GO JACKETS!!!!
October 24th, 20095:17 pm
QUESTION: Have you ever seen a BEE sting twice? ANSWER: Wait till the Saturday after Thanksgiving !!!
October 24th, 20095:20 pm
Solid defensive performance. Dominating ball control.
I thought sure that when we spotted ‘Ginny twice inside the red zone they would put up seven each time. This is the first time in a long time that we have not allowed a touchdown in a game.
Kudos to all the young men. Solid team effort top to bottom.
GT FAN UP NORTH
October 24th, 20095:33 pm

derrick morgans bow tie rocks
October 24th, 20095:51 pm

October 24th, 20095:52 pm

October 24th, 20095:56 pm
I want another shot at LSU !!!
October 24th, 20095:58 pm
miami fumbles hahahaha clemson’s ball again
October 24th, 20095:59 pm
October 24th, 20096:00 pm
Solid game for the bees. Another bad streak broken! The team has great heart – Nesbitt, Dwyer, Morgan, Allen (who was a stud today with some key runs) and Jefferson. UVa played good defense but clearly got tired at the end (who wouldn’t after a 16 play drive?). Need to pray for the Tigers. Go Clemson!
October 24th, 20096:04 pm
I hope all the “experts” who complain about the triple option offense will
shut up now! Controlling the ball over two-thirds of the third quarter broke
the back of the UVa defense. That is good football in anybody’s book!
October 24th, 20096:07 pm
johnboy, are you crazy? we will kick your a$$ again. You beat a 3-3 ACC team. Quit drinking the kool-aid.
October 24th, 20096:17 pm
Tech wants another shot at LSU? You’re kidding me! What a joke.
October 24th, 20096:21 pm
I would expect that bravado BS from you folk The Varsity is gonna start offering a new menu choice straight from Buford Highway BLACKENED cat…get used to it you’ll be eatin’ plenty by seasons end after you watch your conference championship game and think about what might have been..
October 24th, 20096:40 pm
hey boy, you’re the one wanting to play us again. We dont mind coming down there to your hometown and kicking your A$$ again.
October 24th, 20096:41 pm
Great game- made Virginia look like a bunch of amateurs- gosting them dawgs!
October 24th, 20096:53 pm
OK LSUboi tell Gary Stokan to set it up for the Chick Fil A kick off it would be a great game to start the season!
October 24th, 20097:23 pm
Forget it Johnboy,”LSU FAN” comes on this blog and pretends to be a fan of Tech’s next opponent. He’s really just a doggie who is jealous of Tech’s success. Pitiful really
October 24th, 20097:25 pm
CLEMSON WINS IN OT!
October 24th, 20097:26 pm
clemson just won in OT, in spite of their poor coaching. Should put us at the top and playing for the ACC championship. Must win out the remainder of the schedule.
October 24th, 20097:28 pm
It will be all over when UGA beats all your sorry buts
October 24th, 20097:29 pm
October 24th, 20097:30 pm
BS PATROL you are full of bsss
October 24th, 20097:44 pm
awesome game today Ga Tech, Anthony Allen you just stood out and the Defense Rocked! All the way turnt up guys! Hey Coach Wommack, job well done! Way to turn things around…this team is so “turnt up” it not only deserved to win but it also deserved for Clemson to beat Miami.
Derrick Morgan is as handsome as he is talented….
Tech fans…if Clemson somehow gets into ACC title game, their fans will go in droves to Tampa, so please you have to make the drive too. This team is too good to not have your there to show support. Spend your money and head to Tampa. Next year in Charlotte closer to me.
So Herbie, why is this the first time your has shown up? It’s because the rest of us know who you are.
old Tech fan in NC
October 24th, 20097:48 pm
If ClemPson keeps winning, Tech may have to play them (or Duke) again…in Florida.
Congrats to Tech! And Clemson.
Jack G…still not convinced about that option? Come on, get on board!
the story is GT today, wantabees. Chances are not good for the LSU rematch.
October 24th, 20098:14 pm
its your lucky day, there is no rematch
October 24th, 20098:15 pm
Great job Tech! Great job Clemson, inspite of your HC Dabo. He is dumber than a sack of hammers.
October 24th, 20098:17 pm
Why does GT not get any mention on ESPN sports?
Been listening to all the games today and no mention of Tech’s win.
What is going on????
October 24th, 20098:24 pm
Based on the way Georgia Tech is playing this year, but considering the Conference they play in (ACC), it is indeed possible that they will beat the Dawgs. Possible? Yes; Probable? No.
It’s Geeorgia’s turn to ‘turn’ the tables in 2009. Having said that I must commend Paul Johnson and his staff for putting out a fine product.
October 24th, 20098:30 pm
Hey Bug Eater, Where You At Homeboy?,Should Be Pen*s Envy By Now!!!!!!! THWG, P.S. Have You Kicked Your Dog Today!!!!
October 24th, 20098:49 pm
Let your heads swell my GT nerds! It will be more to squash out of you in late Nov…..hahahhahahah
October 24th, 20098:50 pm
We”ll be 3-0 against the over-rated SEC on November 28th. That includes your wounded puppies. Of course, you’ll be too embarassed to post after that date; that’s the reason we laugh at you now. Dawgs $uck, always have, always will. THWG!!! Go Jackets
As I stated before, history, facts, everything points to GA owns GT…….
October 24th, 20098:51 pm
My Dawgs won today so well be ready to play the Gaytors next week. They cna’t handle the MSU bulldogs either, but wait until they get the real DAWGS! Woof Woof Woof
October 24th, 20098:53 pm
To the gay guy who is using my name….get your own you chicken $hit
Even though we lost to the nerds last year that was only a fluke. We have a better team and our record speaks for itself. the lowly bugs will have no chance. Remember it here: the bugsquacher says it now!
October 24th, 20098:55 pm
Did I just call myself gay? Well lets set the record straight. I am gay. The bugsquacher has been gay for a long time. What of it? The bugsquacher rules! Go Dawgs!
October 24th, 20098:57 pm
The Dawgs will win the BCS NC game this year. Just remember that you heard it from the bugsquacher first! Woof Woof Woof Hear my bark, fear my roar, when you see my tongue you will head for the door! How ’bout them Dawgs!!!
October 24th, 20098:59 pm
Instead of telling us about how great the Dawgs are why don’t you take a closer look at your pathetic team.
