Why Isn’t Nesbitt Getting Heisman Mentions?
Tebow’s been responsible for 18 TDs (10 passing and 8 running) and a little over 1800 yards of offense. Seven of those scores came against Charleston Southern and Troy…so don’t get too excited.
Nesbitt has been responsible for 19 TDs (6 passing and 13 rushing) and a little over 1900 yards of offense. Only two of those scores came against cupcake competition opening the season against Jacksonville State.
So Nesbitt has been responsible for more scores and more yards at this point in the season…against fairly comparable competition. And by the end of the season Nesbitt will have played potentially better overall competition since the Gators still have Florida International on their schedule.
By the end of the season, the Jackets and Gators will share four opponents…FSU, MSU, Vandy, and UGA. That’ll give us a chance to make direct comparisons.
As of right now, Nesbitt’s performance against MSU looks alot better than Tebow’s.
Tebow threw for 127 but had two INTs returned for scores. He ran for 88 and a TD as well.
Nesbitt only threw for a paltry 266 (1 TD and no INTs) while running for a respectable 53 yards.
Can the Yellow Jackets continue to win in spite of their recent success?
While this may sound like a silly question to some, I think many GT fans will understand exactly where I am coming from. We’ve had small (and large) periods of success more than once in the past decade which were followed by crushing defeat and wrenching heartbreak. Its gotten to the point where Tech fans almost expect to be let down…sometimes we feel like its just a matter of time before the proverbial “other shoe” drops out of the sky to crush our dreams.
More than once this past week I’ve caught myself dwelling on how bad it would feel to lose to Wake Forest this coming weekend. Its almost like I’m preparing for the inevitable let down.
Its during those times that I have to remind myself that there is something different about Tech this season…Paul Johnson.
