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?

The offense will not be new for the 2009 season and teams will have more tapes to look at to prepare. Johnson is an excellent coach and will have GT ready week in and week out. Recruiting will be the key to GT's success. As for this year 8-4 or 9-3.

Where is the world will we end up next (this) year?

The posts are all of excellent quality! Thanks again!

Georgia Tech - Where will we end up next year?

I played safety in HS and we played several teams that ran the trip option. The first few times, the trip option was confusing and difficult. Each player had to be focused on their assignment. If anybody got lost in the play then it was TD city. We had a hard time running it in practice and that caused us to be unprepared for what were the real reads and options. Once we got it, the trip option was easy to stop, but we took our lumps before we figured it out.

With a brutal schedule I think 10 wins and an Orange Bowl bid would be outstanding. Hopefully the orange bowl will showcase a better game than in recent years. As a GT fan I'm increasingly hopeful that we will make an appearance this year or next. I think CPJ and the jackets believe in their ability as do the ramblin wreck faithful. However, if we don't match the win total from last season I don't think there's any reason to panic. There is loads of tough competition in our league and in the non-con schedule over the next couple years. There's no question that a high win total helps in the recruiting game, but CPJ seems like the type that can produce no matter what (hello 2008). The ACC is quickly on the rise, and I think in a tie for the 3rd best conference in the nation. Let the 4 letter network and everyone else continue to doubt. Folks that watch ACC Ft Ball week in week out during the fall know (with the exception of Duke and one other annual bottom feeder) that it's a bit of a roller caoster, but that it's tough as nails to get the conference with a high win mark. Kudos to VaTech for two in a row, it's time to bust their ass right off the track. What's the good word?

Yes I am a fan of the rambling wreck but I do believe the they can do very well this season I see no reason why they cannot have another 9-3 record with a shot at the ACC Championship game and title.  Now with this being the sophomore season of Coach Johnson and this offense at GA Tech there will continue to be improvements and problems  I can’t wait to see how the team performs this year and how the new recruits do in this program.

GT should do well offensively.  CPJ is a very good coach and his offense tends to do better his second season.  Dwyer is a good back (I'll hold off on higher accolades until he does it two years in a row).  I see GT actually throwing the ball a little more this season than last year as the O becomes more familiar with the entire play book.  GT has a lot of holes to fill on the D side of the ball, starting with the D-line.  GT schedule in the ACC maybe very tough with N.C. and Va. Tech.  Out of conference will not be a cupcake.  Vanderbilt is usually a very well coached team and is rarely out of position.  The Vandy of old lacked athletes, however their starters becoming better athletes yearly.  Vandy's depth is an issue and could prove their undoing against GT.  Miss St. has a new coach and we will have to wait and see.  As for UGA, the defense should be much better this year, especially in the interior line.  Adkins and Owens will be tough for any team to handle.  UGAs linebackers are fast and athletic.  The safeties both have a lot of game experience although Evans is moving from CB.  UGA defense will be very solid up the middle.  The DE and CBs are where GT needs to attack (along with every other team) to beat the Dawgs.  UGA may very well start a Fr at Corner and noone has stepped up at DE.  UGA will be able to tackle this year after the embarrasment we were handed last year in the 2nd half against GT and UF meltdown.  All in all I see GT being 9-3 at the end of the regular season and they will most likely win their bowl game after its meltdown last year to LSU.  They will be very focussed for that game.  GT fans will be delighted with a 10 win season.  In my humble opinion, GT will lose to Va Tech, UGA and either NC, Clemson or Vandy.

The triple option is a good offense for the regular season. It is hard for a team to learn to stop it in just a few days. It is also hard to find people to simulate the thing in practice at the right speed with the right reads. Imagine trying to hunt down someone who knows how to run it and run it correctly that isn't a starter or a back up. Very difficult for sure. The only problem with the trip option is that it is a bad bowl offense. The problem is that teams get a long look at it on film and then get the chance to replicate it in practice correctly. A team with a month to break it down usually can. This is part of the reason I think Ga. Tech will do well in the regular season and should win 8 or 9 games, but a bowl win will be difficult.  Good luck this year!

All the GT fans I talk to think that LSU lose was nothing because yal beat UGA. Unless the ACC install a anti-option Defence, yal got no where but up to go.
