the offense isn't the problem. The qb is terrible; we need a playmaker back there. Glad to see Groh gone but I don't know what it will accomplish. We just can't get the athletes on our D-line to be successful. If we can get a playmaker at qb which we have two on the roster and a somewhat decent defense, Tech will be tough to stop.

This was the right time to do it since we are on a bye. Our 3-4 defense was like putting a square peg in a round hole.
No serious GT fan would say that Paul Johnson needs to go, even after the MTSU and Miami collapses. He won an ACC title and beat UGA; I know that doesn't sound like much to the MSB, but Chan Gailey failed to do both in six years and we have little hope of doing better with someone else.
Our offense is averaging 37.8 ppg and is top 5 in Rush YPG, Rush TD, and YPC. That side of the ball hasn't been the problem. Also, remember the name Vad Lee. He will be huge for us next year at QB.
