Georgia Tech kick returner Orwin Smith committed an ultimate bonehead play on Saturday during a kick return. Smith caught the ball in the end zone, was thinking about taking a knee, but his momentum carried him past the goal line. His hand touched the half yard line before he decided to take a knee, meaning he officially had come out of the end zone before downing himself behind the line. The result was a safety that gave Miami a 12-0 first-quarter lead, which they soon blew.

  • The safety did not cost Tech that game, Tech is 2 defensive stands from being 4-0. If Johnson keeps Al Groh around much longer, they both may be seeking employment, Go Al Go, back to Virginia!
  • No_D_Jacket is absolutely correct. Al Groh and his 4-3 defense is for a Team that has the talent to play 4-3. Tech does not! Even though Tech shifts out of the 4-3 to adjust to the offensive package on the field, they still are not talented enough to. Tech's defense has given up 85 points in 4 games. One of those games was against a Clemson Fraternity. Oh no it was Presbyterian College, same thing.

    Al Groh, Delta is ready when you are!!

    Not is not the only problem. Until Paul Johnson can recruit and and train a real option quarterback any defense that deserves to pay in D1 will stop us. Tevon Washington is the embodement of former Tech Legend in his Own Mind - Reggie Ball. 4th and Goal on a march that would beat Georgia and what does Reggie do, throws a pass away. Uh, I thought it was 3rd Down!
