Pass, Paul, Pass

Georgia Tech is known for running the triple option offense, and for running it well. They did a relatively good job of executing it against Georgia last weekend. But in the last two minutes of the Georgia game, Tech head coach Paul Johnson abandons his trademark attack and begins throwing the ball. Not just throwing it a little, but throwing it deep. And all of this is transpiring with the Jackets in Bulldog territory and almost two minutes left on the game clock. A bomb on first down. Another on second down. Then a third on third down. All incomplete. Now it's fourth and ten. An eleven yard pass to the sideline to a wide open receiver. Dropped ball, incomplete pass, kill the clock ( with more than a minute on it), Bulldawgs win! Thanks, Paul, and I don't even want to know what you were thinking.
