Brian Gregory knows that feel, Tech fans. - Jake Roth-US PRESSWIRE

The first half was pretty lame, but if you want to read more about it, here are some facts and figures.

Team Notes

... Tech lost a fumble for the first time since the Nov. 3 Maryland game and had a turnover for the first time since the Nov. 10 UNC game
