They say that things are never as bad as they seem. Truth be told, they're not.
I'm starting to seriously question that though.
For the third game in a row, Georgia Tech has lost without really impressing much of anyone. The blocking was bad. Passes were dropped. The tackling was bad. The defensive angles were bad. The play calling wasn't great. Penalties were committed...a lot.
Last year in his press conference discussing Al Groh's midseason firing, Paul Johnson made some comments along the lines of how he "Didn't see things getting any better from week to week." Sadly, that's how I'm starting to feel.
Worse is that I don't know how to solve any of it. CPJ is the one ultimately responsible for these things, but I don't think that he's the issue.
CPJ isn't jumping before the snap. CPJ isn't fumbling passes that hit him in the hands. CPJ's not missing tackles left and right.
Is it a motivation issue? Is it a coaching issue? Is it a talent issue?
I don't really know, and I have no confidence at this point that things will get better moving forward. Here's to hoping we make a bowl game -- the odds aren't in our favor at this point.
How drunk are you right now, Tech fans? How would you solve our problems? Where is your confidence level in this team?
