Coach Paul Johnson knows that Georgia Tech is at a strange crossroads to a bizarre season. If the Yellow Jackets upset No. 13 Florida State in the ACC championship game, they clinch a spot in the Orange Bowl. If they lose, it might take an NCAA waiver for lower-tier bowls even to offer them an invitation. But Johnson says he isn't concerned about Georgia Tech's postseason status with a conference title at stake on Saturday night in Charlotte, N.C. Yes, Johnson acknowledges that the Yellow Jackets (6-6) were embarrassed to lose so convincingly at Georgia last week. But the fifth-year coach also says that the ''sky isn't falling'' and added that Georgia Tech can change its perception with a victory over Florida State. --- Follow George Henry at www.twitter.com/georgehenryAP
