But who cares. What a wretched game to watch. CAG has got to go. The 3-4 does not work at Tech and we have to make a change in order to improve the D.

Enter your comments hereUntil yesterday, I was disappointed in Georgia Tech fans, wondering why we cannot fill our staduim, even for an in-conference rivalry, and why the game is well into the first quarter before we show up en masse at Grant Field. I don’t know if our players read these blogs, and I do not hang these losses on any one player. But, I am so disappointed in seeing the players give up before the game was over. To stop fighting when you are down, to give in to the pressure, to accept defeat before time expires is perhaps the most betraying action anyone can take, whether in business, sports, or God forbid, our armed forces. My greatest disappointment is now in the team. What example is this for Georgia Tech, and for other people looking to you for inspiration? To the players, I ask simply, “why?” After being blessed with physical abilities that most of the rest of us will never possess, “why throw down you God given talents, give up, and walk away shamed?” Your loyal fans want to hear from you. Why have you done this?

You can blame whoever you want to,but your boy CPJ is the problem at tek.He is so arrogant and will never admit that a total offense and defense is what wins games.His attitude is you can’t beat my system because I know it can’t be beat!BWHAAHAAA HAA.

Oh and by the way NUFF SAID!
The Falcons just displayed guts, persistence, determination, and a desire to win in their game against the Panthers. They drove down the field and won, with only a few seconds left in the game. Even if they lost the game, I would have been proud of their efforts, because they gave their all, to the very end. What a difference in the Falcons’ players today, and the Georgia Tech team falling on their swords yesterday, seemingly in self pity. I do not believe that GT players cannot play well because entry requirements to Tech are more difficult than other schools. Does anybody really believe that gifted athletes are not smart enough to get into and play at Tech, Stanford, Notre Dame, etc.? I do not believe that outstanding athletes are somehow not smart enough to get into Georgia Tech, I think that is an excuse played by pundits, some alumni, and ill accountable leadership. Heck, I got into Tech and graduated with honors because I worked hard (and prayed a lot). You have to want it, you have to work harder than anyone else, and you cannot believe what anyone else says about you. Put your collective will together, as a team, don’t allow anyone to blame the coaches, the staff, the defense or the offense. My recommendation, step up and make a difference, to a man. Never, ever give up and never blame anyone but yourself if your BEST is not enough.

SuperDAWG: here’s the point. I am not saying that the coaches are not accountable, and that changes should not be made. In addition, I do not blame particular aspects or individuals on the team. What I am saying is that we can only control and affect our own effort and drive, and we can positively influence others with determination, drive and honor. The players cannot affect the coaching staff, administration, alumni wishes, or mediocre fans. They can, however, control their individual and collective efforts on the field and give everything they have to offer. This should be in spite of a poor play call, a bad referee decision, a mediocre fan base, a particular scheme, or some gut wrenching overtime losses. I have confidence that GT players and trust they will step up, in spite of the current issues, or what people are saying. Go Jackets

If Groh is still coaching Saturday and Tevin starts, then Johnson obviously is more concerned with his ego than with trying to win. The team has already quit and that would even make it worse if Johnson shows he doesn’t care. There is nothing left to play for now until the UGA game so get Vad ready for that one now. Tevin gives us no shot at winning since he wants to keep the ball himself everytime and is too scared to pitch.

Tevin is worse than Reggie Ball. Why was he kept in the entire game???
This coach doesn’t have a clue. So tired of this. It’s time to move on.
