Contrary to what you guys thought, no, I am not suffering from a debilitating hangover right now, though by the third quarter of last night's game I was rather dehydrated and quite hungry. So I still got mine. Anyways, my phone died shortly into the game last night (2+ years old, battery sucks, time for an upgrade) so I wasn't able to take notes, but I'll try my best to do this from memory.
- Vad Lee looked REALLY good. Kid made some great throws and runs. If anything his biggest struggle was making the right reads on the triple option. But the things he can do with the ball in his hands are really impressive. (Fun fact: His 79-yard run was the longest in Georgia Tech history that didn't go for a touchdown. Also, his 82-yard TD pass to Jeff Greene was the sixth-longest pass in Tech history.) I'm really excited to see him grow into an incredible player for this team.
- The defense was good....for the most part. They kept the PC offense under wraps for most of the game, though at times we showed a potency for giving up a big play. For instance -- the only reason they scored at the end of the game was a 46-yard rush that made it down to the 10 yard line. Maybe we were getting complacent at times or weren't entirely focused, which isn't a big deal because we still won by 8 touchdowns, but is still concerning knowing the better teams we have to face in the near future.
- The Big Play appears to have made its return. Georgia Tech scored 8 touchdowns, 4 of which were runs or passes that went for 45+ yards. What does this mean, keeping in mind who we were playing? Well, not much, seeing as I don't think Laskey or Tevin would have pulled off 50+ yard TD runs against better competition. However, it's nice seeing what we've come to expect from our offense in the way of big plays -- especially in the passing game (TD's were 45 yards to Godhigh, 82 yards to Greene), where it'll be needed very soon.
