A week after playing against Paul Johnson’s protégé, the man himself comes to Athens with his hive of Yellow Jackets.
The Bulldogs took care of business in Atlanta and will certainly enjoy taking the rivalry back to Sanford Stadium, and the faithful sea of red and black.
QB Tevin Washington is currently having to battle for the starting job against Synjyn Days and Vad Lee who are both exceptional athletes. Apparently Lee is a great passer which seems like an odd fit for Georgia Tech, right? The Yellow Jackets always bring tall receivers with good hands who can bail out any horrible throw from their quarterback and turn it into a 75-yard touchdown.
Johnson throws a flurry of running backs at you, and hopes to wear down your front seven in order to open up the big play. Unfortunately for them, Georgia’s front seven is one of the best – if not, the best – in the country, and also has depth. Also worth mentioning, Tech’s offensive line is depleted and had a poor showing in their annual Spring Game (which was on a Friday for some reason). Their secondary is also thin on experienced players, and you can be sure QB Aaron Murray will surely enjoy taking advantage of that.
Todd Grantham showed off his successful game plan against the Jackets in 2011, and will surely be using some of those elements in the final game of the 2012 regular season. Georgia Tech is never a team to sleep on, but always a feel-good win to close the campaign with as Georgia goes for its fourth straight against it\’s in-state rival.
