"Out-coached in overtime". This is a debate question: is overtime really football? Or is it a contrivance for the convenience of the TV networks and the rankings to dispense with the indigestible tie game? Yes, I will acknowledge that overtime, by rule, is now part of the college football landscape, and as such we should be better at it than we are. I say that we are being outcoached LEADING UP TO OVERTIME, since if I remember correctly, we have had the lead in all three of these games--we got tied, we didn't do the come-from-behind thing--they others guys did. They took our win away and forced the overtime each time. That is where we are getting bested.
I don't know what we do now, but we are not in a good position
We are a very average team that appears to have very few NFL quality player's or even game changer's on our roster
It's tough to be a GA Tech fan now, but I stand with my team through these times and will be at every home game from well before kick off until the final play
Mark Bradley's AJC Piece is spot on. CPJ is a head coach, not an offensive coordinator. The fire that we saw from him on the sideline in the '08/'09 season seems to be gone. The brass balls playcalling is gone. If he doesn't have the playmakers necessary, that falls on him. If the D isn't doing it's job, that falls on him.
He's running out of excuses and I honestly believe his tenure at Tech will depend on how Vad Lee/Justin Thomas and the rest of his recent recruits pan out for him. I like CPJ. I love the option. I don't want to see him go, but I'm a Tech fan first and foremost - he's gonna have to find a way to reverse the trend and win the games that matter most.
