Tech fans call for Paul Johnson’s head I wrote an article two weeks ago that, unlike my other articles, received an unprecedented amount of attention before I took it down after all the personal attacks. In the article, I talked about how many fans were very unhappy with Coach Paul Johnson and how things are stagnating with the Georgia Tech football program. I removed it because of all the profanity and negative content. However, I wish I hadn’t, because most of the things I said that fans were saying about CPJ were tweeted after Monday’s loss to Ole Miss in the Music City Bowl. In the article, I discussed CPJ and his one bowl victory in his entire tenure at Tech, the fast start and rapid decline of the seasons since 2009, Georgia Tech being outcoached and outplayed, turnovers, injuries, and other things that have plagued the Jackets as of late. When I began discussing how I had spoken to many fans and stated that they wanted Paul Johnson replaced, I received interesting comments about being a woman that “shouldn’t talk football” because I was an “idiot” or “had no clue”. Apparently, because I didn’t get the name and contact info of every fan that I spoke to, the information was written off as “pure BS”. Twitter is a pretty amazing tool and resource when you know exactly what you’re doing with it. On Monday evening, I decided to see if I was missing the mark in my previous article, or were the fans that happened to read the article just unhappy with someone openly discussing Coach Paul Johnson and the coaching issues at Tech. I searched “Coach Paul Johnson” just to see what would come up. The following screenshots are some of the tweets from fans that I happened to see. After reading those tweets, it’s painfully obvious that everyone isn’t happy with Paul Johnson lately. Since 2008, the Yellow Jackets are 1-5 in bowl games, with the only win being the Sun Bowl in 2012. The season records since winning the ACC Championship in 2009 are 6-7, 8-5, 7-7 and 7-6 this season. Most of those seasons seemed to look promising before taking major dives and ending just around the corner from .500. And needless to say, Georgia Tech hasn’t beat UGA since their comeback win in 2008 at Sanford Stadium. Although Tech continues to rank in the top 5 in the nation in rushing yards, they still struggle to omit turnovers and simple mistakes from the game plan. This season in particular, Georgia Tech started the season on a three-game winning streak before losing the next three games to Virginia Tech, Miami and BYU. Early leads and late failures were the tale of the tape for the Jackets in 2013, and it has been a trend for the past few seasons. Judging by the tweets, maybe these are some of the issues that are frustrating Georgia Tech fans and calling for Paul Johnson’s head. I’m not too sure if continuing with Coach Paul Johnson is the best option at the moment, but the fans certainly aren’t excited with how things have transpired. It will be interesting to see if CPJ will finish contract at Tech, or if they will decide to look elsewhere for a replacement.
