Weekend Football Wrap-up

Georgia Tech won a game when trailing by 3 in overtime Tech went for it on 4th and 1 from the 6.

Coach Paul Johnson was asked after the game about going for it in that spot where a loss put the U of Miami in driver's seat for ACC Championship:

"The easy thing to do is kick it, because it puts the onus on the kids, if the kicker misses it you can blame the kicker"

At the time Georgia Tech was 0 for 4 on 4th down attempts against Wake but 9 of 13 the rest of season.

Tech needs to sign him up to a long term contract with big buyout payment clauses before one of the deep pocketed school's decides maybe that option offense can work in BCS.

Tampa Bay chose this weekend to start it's Ring of Fame and induct LeRoy Selmon as 1st member. Since he was 1st Buc and only Hall of Famer it seems like a fine choice.
Wearing the creamsicles and re-enacting 'The Bay of Pigs' game may have been too much dwelling on the "Buc traditions".

The Georgia Tech game was awesome to see live. Even then it was clear that the Yellow Jackets would be able to convert the 4th and short...
