Georgia Tech - Where will we end up next year?

Posted on: April 11, 2009 8:14 pm
 

Georgia Tech has installed Paul Johnson and the triple option. We did well last year, going 9-4, much better than usual. But that Bowl loss still sticks in the craw, yes it does. I can't forget about it, though I do try.

What think ye? Will GT become the dominant force in the ACC? Will Josh Nesbitt improve and run the triple with precision, keeping the ball off the ground? Will the triple option run over everybody? Or will we embarass ourselves again and lose to the likes of Virginia?

What think ye?

GT will be just fine.  I was in Boise for that Humanitarian Bowl vs. Tulsa and it isn't as much about the players as the system set up.  The system works so whoever they plug in will do well in the ACC and in late December/early January.

Well, whoever thought we would end up winning the ACC and going to the Orange Bowl?

WELL, WE DID IT!

tOSU has time but it takes some serious practice to stop the triple option. Navy will give tOSU some fits at times but most likely they won't have the players to finish tOSU off.

  Paul Johnson is a great coach and the Tech offense will be much better this year. To me, the triple option is an evolution type process. The basic offense is simple. There are roughly 25 to 30 plays out of the base offense and the reads by the QB are easy. The triple option gets better the more wrinkles you add. That takes time. Navy has run it the last several years and so they've add stuff and they have gotten better at it. This is where Coach Johnson is now. Adding wrinkles and running different plays out of the base offense. I also bet any amount of money that Coach Johnson is working with Nesbitt on his passing. The triple option is at its best when the QB actually can throw the ball down the field with timing and be accurate. The best I have ever the trip option run was by Tommie Frazier at Nebraska. Not only could he run but he could throw the pill. Frazier ran the the trip option to its utmost. Frazier's ability to throw made the triple option even more dangerous and opened up the option and belly dive by making teams respect the pass. That is what Paul Johnson wants. If he can get that type of effort out of Nesbitt then Ga.Tech's trip option will grow by leaps and bounds and will be just about impossible to stop.

Navy might give tOSU trouble the first game.  We will seeI never considered it, but you could be right. But considering that OSU has had plenty of time to prepare for the triple-O, I would not expect Navy to have much of a chance. They just don't attract the quality players to get the job done. Hence, the 8-5 records (though, one season they did go 9-4, losing to BC in the MCC Bowl by a last second FG!). Still, for Navy to consistently win 8 games per season, I would say this is quite an accomplishment with the quality of players they have had.
