Found December 17, 2011 on Georgia Tech Athletics:
The year 1972 was a year of unexpected highs and lows for Georgia Tech.It began with a new coach, Bill Fulcher, who replaced Bud Carson, who left following four losing seasons in five years -- although the one winning year was the magical 9-3 1970 season. He was greeted with a 34-3 flattening at the hands of No. 15 Tennessee in the season opener.But just when it looked like the Yellow Jackets were in for a long year, they turned the tables, blasting South Carolina, then pulling off what might have been the turning point of their season, a 21-16 victory over Michigan State in East Lansing.
