Enjoy the game.

Johnson’s done NOTHING to warrant another year. No win over UGA since 2008, no win over VT since 2009, a vacated ACC Championship, no bowl wins, two losing seasons in three years, etc. Fire him and let him go coach in some capacity at a junk level SEC, ACC, MAC, or Sun Belt school. It stinks to see Tech down like this.
Wrecked again, but we are in AN ELEMENT!
Sorry, I don’t think CPJ could win anymore at a lower level either. The game has passed him by..
Exactly in 09 we had the ACC championship, have had huge games against Clemson, and big upsets against Florida State and Virginia Tech. Those games showed that PJs offense can work, but right now its hard to say. His offense has worked well in the past, but is it possible to turn things around and get the proper players again?

I think we have one more year of CPJ. Then we have to live through the rebuilding years.
Agreed St Richt! BTW, hate your name.
If do right, no can defense
@Coach Z. Yea will we aren’t a football factory now are we… gotta stretch our limited talent and resources as much as possible. We must harvest the little we have (which includes AD funds that would be needed to fire CPJ) very judiciously. Very very judiciously.
We will make some adjustments at halftime, and suc a little less. 38-12.

Wow! Just checked out the score of the B1G championship game. The Badgers, who finished the season 4-4 in the conference are leading 42-10 at the half. If WE can win the second half in similar fashion, then we’ll be off to the Orange Bowl next month.
Defensive line plays to damn high…get your a.. down and drive under the pads …hell thats pee wee league. Poor coaching!!! Basic football….Come on guys the arm tackles are getting old. Leave Vad in the game!!!!
December 1st, 20129:51 pm
We have no defense and Johnson’s offense does not work against the better defensive teams. We’re toast again!! Thanks for the memories Paul. Let’s hope you are a distant memory sooner rather than later.
December 1st, 20129:52 pm
WOW… A sack!!!!
Uh oh. 3rd and long. They got us where they want us.
WillGT, please! His offense doesnt work. Maybe his offense would work if he called the right plays. Gaining 7 to 8 yards of plays on B back dives, but then you try all this other stuff. If I was coaching it would be a constand dose of SIMS.
Did you here the field reporter say Johsnon says his team is right where they want them, Not controlling the clock?
I agree Coach Z, but everyone mentions the poor defensive back play(See UGA game), But no one mentions how bad the linebacker play is. And, we are trying to run a 3-4 with these guys…what a joke. Poor coaching is not only teaching bad schemes, but its also not using your personel the right way. No way we should be running the 3-4 with this poor talent level.
December 1st, 20129:53 pm
PJ says we have FSU right where we want them:-). This guy is a bona-fide idiot.
Good job defense.
That’s what we needed! 3 and out. Let’s go offense! The d actually did their part, up to you now!
December 1st, 20129:54 pm
Holy cow, a three and out. Why they went away from the run game is beyond me, but we’ll take it!
December 1st, 20129:55 pm
Same old same old. The problem isn’t the offensive scheme or the defensive scheme. WE HAVE VERY LITTLE TALENT. Recruiting is our biggest problem. FSU’s linebackers are faster than our running backs. It’s the TALENT stupid!!!!
December 1st, 20129:57 pm
Well…. at least i can finally say that i am off the fence. Triple option has to go. CPJ says that the offense clearly isnt the problem,just look at the yardage…..but the scoreboards from the uga and now the fsu game tell otherwise
If do right, its not about a football factory, its about doing the right things with what you got. CPJ doesnt understand that. I don’t care if we loose, I care that we aren’t doing anything right. Getting off blocks, running the B-back, traing our WR to do more like run routes and work on footwork than blocking. If you look back at GT last possesion inside the 10 our WR was picking daisy and FSU CB came back and helped make the stop. I’m just fed up of poor play calling! Just listen to Herbstreet, he speaks eloquently of what I hate most about GT football.
Cant blame the fans for staying home.
December 1st, 20129:58 pm
I can barely stand to watch this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Option with Coach frys choice at QB aint doin so well. 3 whole yards…..nice.
Qb keeper on 3rd and 10? Seriously?
December 1st, 20129:59 pm
3rd and 10 and you run a QB sneak or dive, whatever the hell pj calls it… lol
Well, I think that’ll be it for Washington this game. Vad Lee needs to take over.
December 1st, 201210:00 pm
Burdell, yes a three and out. But what does TECH do with it…. nuff said.
I need another Stella
I love that musberger says “When you come back” rather than when “we” come back. It makes me think that the “we” would have left the building and be trolling Uptown for some real excitment.
December 1st, 201210:01 pm
Bundy, oh watch TECH suck. It’s more fun if you laugh with them!
Your diploma is one of MERIT, it doesnt reflect how bad the football team sucks
We could have tommy Frazier in there and the option is not gonna work…fsu defending it well tonight, too much speed. Vad does give us a better shot at throwing, though.
As much as we hate on the d…doesn’t matter how they play if the offense can’t do nuthin…
December 1st, 201210:02 pm
What option..FS has stop that.
Run any scheme you want. With these players we couldn’t beat anybody. How the hell did we win 6 games????
December 1st, 201210:03 pm
Time to run the A-back option pass with Days—they are crashing on the pitch man—even for toss sweeps. Need to throw more—they are daring us to do so. Time to put in Vad. The dive still works so dive and play action.
After watching UGA and Alabama the talent differential is stark between SEC and ACC. There is a lot of work to be done to get ACC play up to speed.
No, Tevin will be back I’m sure. CPJ loves him! I really think he is just playing him now to get a rise out of the fanbase. Are you kidding me? Tevin playing is bad enough and then he QB follow on 3rd and 10. Yeah, CPJ, that was ingenious.
If CPJ never develops the air game, he’ll never win big again at this level. Teams NEVER have to think about anything but the run, therefore they can commit 1 or 2 extra players to defensing the runs around the end.
Tech is CPJ’s last stop on the coaching circuit at the FBS level.
December 1st, 201210:04 pm
Vad Lee should transfer.
December 1st, 201210:05 pm
I feel bad for the players. I really don’t blame them for not playing well. I blame POOR COACHING!
nothing is balanced on this team
the team needs a wake up, they just seem to have the intensity level that you would expect a team to have in a championship game. no fire at all from the offense and the QB should be one of the main guys to do that
Watch what GT does with this prime opportunity?
I guess, CPJ will try to throw it 3 times to go three and out.
I have a Stella to wager, takers?
December 1st, 201210:06 pm
WillGT, its the coaching!!!!!!!!
December 1st, 201210:07 pm
@Coach Z: I think you’ve got it wrong… our fundamentals are sound. We don’t give away penalties. We don’t turn over the ball too much. That’s coaching for you. We’re just outmatched at the talent level.
December 1st, 201210:09 pm
Man, I need a girlfriend. Something to pull me away from the Shakesperean Tradgedy that’s Rambin Wreck. E Tu Yellow Jacket. Musberger offers the question, can GT take advantage of it…
PICKED OFF!!!!! DUH, DUH, DUH, NA NA NUH, GO SUCK ITS!
Awesome throw!!! Hit him right between the numbers! Now I am laughing!
Beautiful junk play right to FS player….oh my God whats next.
Why in God’s name is Tevin still in the game? That’s just embarrassing.
Yeah I’m sure a 6 foot Washington will jump over the 2 defenders. Pathetic…offense had two trys and blew it. This game is now lost due to the offense…
