Nothing is over until Johnson, schedule say so

Georgia Tech's season may be over as far as getting to the ACC championship, but as far as Head Coach Paul Johnson is concerned, the season is anything but over.

His look into the future consists of Saturday's game at Duke, the home- and season-finale next...

Georgia Tech aims for 10 wins

Following Wednesday’s practice, coach Paul Johnson said Smith is “probably out” for the Yellow Jackets’ game against Duke.

Georgia Tech B-back production

I’m working on a story probably for Saturday about the lack of production at B-back.  Through 10 games, David Sims and Preston Lyons have a combined 794 yards, roughly putting them on a 13-game pace for about 1,030 yards...
