And unfortunatly this year The Ramblin Wrek travel to Death Valley … say your prays Tech fans I think this may go doen rough. In short there is an infinitly small chance that we leave Death Valley with a resounding victory. If Paul Johnson pulls off the win it will have to look like the Miami game this year except with the Yellow Jackets in the roll of Miami and coming back late in the game, from a forseeibly large defiecit.
Since I finished that first paragraph at least a day or two before the game, I have to say its funny how accurate it was. Tech loss to Clemson 47-31 and in my humble oppinon closed out the chance of this season having any meaning. Granted this game did prove that the Yellow Jacket offense is capable of scoring more then 21 points, three TDs, five games in a row. Now we all know that means little if you don’ when and Tech has won two of those games.
The issue seems to be with 3-4 defense stopping anything, but especially the run late in the game. Since Tech doesn’t pull away from teams once they have the lead, a product of not being able to score quickly, most teams need to control the ball and or clock late in the game. This is done best with a steady rushing attack, which Techs talent hasn’t prevented late in games they have lost.
no sure what’s let to salvage on the season. I would say a victory at UGA but the dawgs just got obliterated by the Gamecocks so that potential victory, wouldn’t mean much.
