Georgia Tech has won a series of football games this season which, by all rights, they had no business winning. Against Virginia for example the Jackets were outgained, out-possessioned, and generally outplayed. Still won.

They beat Virginia Tech without completing a pass. Badly.

The common denominator, as with Georgia’s last two losses to the Gnats, were turnovers, poor tackling, and iffy special teams. Do those things well and the Fightin’ Paul Johnsons are but an annoyance. Do them poorly, and things get way too interesting.

Let’s play smart, physical football and remind little brother about the natural order of things.

Go ‘Dawgs!!!
