However, we didn’t protect the football, which is part of the reason why our defense was playing that last Tech drive with their hands on their hips in between plays. Our first three second half possessions went field goal, touchdown, field goal. But the last three went punt, interception, interception. (VIA)
The difference this season is that this team knows how to close a game. The coaches know how to make the adjustments and communicate them effectively to the players.
Plus, Georgia is a decently good +2 on the season in turnover margin, while Tech is -4. (VIA)
A lot of people are poking Tech fans over that loss last weekend to Duke. And yes, it was ugly. But it tells me Johnson will have these enginerds ready to play. There’s no game that means more to him than the last of the season.
But the reality is that we are way too talented to lose to Tech. Protect the football and keep the defense rested and it should be a fun one for us to watch.
Don’t do those things, and we should just prepare to gnash the teeth deep into the fourth quarter.
