There seems to be neither rhyme nor reason to why Georgia Tech hasn’t won in Charlottesville since 1990.
But, it hasn’t.
It’s lost by one point (2001). It’s lost by 31 (1992).
Tech coach Paul Johnson hasn’t put too much stock into history. As I wrote in Monday’s paper, he said it doesn’t help you block and tackle, and it doesn’t give you any points.
So, this may be one time when the team’s general lack of experience may prove a benefit.
There are only seven fifth-year seniors (and five on scholarship) who could be familiar with the house of horrors that has been Charlottesville.
Johnson wasn’t able to speak to us after practice today because of a speaking engagement in Macon. So, I don’t have a lot of news for you.
I would like to know what you thought of the new videos on MegaJackeTron that played during Saturday’s game against Virginia Tech. I wrote about them in the notebook in Tuesday’s paper. That story should be posted soon.
