from ken at AJC johnson says, “It’s like I told the team [Monday],” he said. “You get beat like that, it’s my fault. I’m ultimately responsible.”

now, let's get this fixed, coach!
This sounds like a guy who cares: "“You just want to punch somebody or go hang yourself or something,” he said."
How the team responds will say a lot. They are only playing for pride now.
Playing for pride only, maybe, but time to stop letting other teams push us around.
We still have several team on our schedule that it would be very nice to beat, plus a potential Bowl Game.
Team needs to do this for THEMSELVES!
In the past GT football has often been JUST GOOD ENOUGH TO BREAK YOUR HEART!
I believe we are on the way to getting where we all want to be - Win Championships, and be more competitive with UGa and Bowl Games.
QB's looking up, WR's coming along(?), Welcome CTR, CMP and new AD, We have some good recruiters with a good class coming, Stamps back to ST's, all 3 phases should be better this year than last. We have team speed to match anyone we play.
What's not to like?
Hopefully he and the team had a come to Jesus meeting and they will get back on a good track. I would be pleased with 8 and 4 at this point with a good quality win over you know who from the cesspool. But most of all I am pleased the CPJ has swallowed his pride and accepted responsibility for the Miami debacle. GO YELLOW JACKETS!!!
For those who would like a reminder: http://gtsports.blogspot.com/2009/11...-contract.html
how sweet! 4+ yrs and $10 million later and we still can't do the little things.
The childish punching comment (again!) just shows me he is out of his depth.
Wow, tough loss and 30 minutes of sleep, I bet it was fun being around Johnson Sunday morning.

11 out of 12. When will this stop?
Bobby Godd never, not once, ever blamed his boys for a loss. It was always on his shoulders, and his shoulders alone. That is greatness. This is not. --YukonWreck

GT uniform critic.
Certainly this is a board and everyone is entitled to their opinion. It is just that mine is right and yours is wrong. --91Wreck
And did you whine about it to show how much you cared about getting your job done?
Hadn't thought of it before reading this reading this thread but.. how much does the chance to win a championship keep players individually pushing through the pain and adversity during a season? How much does it affect the same players when there's virtually no chance at a championship opportunity at the end?
Do they take plays off? Do they not work as hard? Do the little bumps and bruises keep them in the training room longer? Do they quit?
We'll find out the intestinal fortitude this team has this season.. We'll find out if they give a damn..
