Jackets Refocus on Option Football

Coach Paul Johnson has a good feeling about this year’s Georgia Tech football team.

Johnson, who is beginning his seventh season at Tech, said this year’s team seems to be closer, more willing to concentrate on the team aspect rather than individual accomplishments. He said this group, which includes 11 starters and 43 returning lettermen, has bought into the Tech concept.

But how will that translate to wins and losses? Johnson wouldn’t take that bait.

“It’s hard to evaluate your team before you play,” Johnson said. “Is this our most talented team? Probably not. Will it be our best team? We’ll have to see.”

Georgia Tech is coming off a less-than-satisfying 7-6 season that saw the Yellow Jackets lose to Ole Miss in the Music City Bowl. They were picked to finish fifth in the Coastal Division by the media in the recent ACC Kickoff meetings in Greensboro, N.C., a prediction that means little to Johnson.

Johnson pointed out that Tech’s average pick at the meetings over his six years has been 3.9, but their average finish has been 1.8. During Johnson’s tenure, Tech has won or shared the division championship four times and never finished lower than third.
