Georgia Tech football coach Paul Johnson is in no mood to discuss some of the realities surrounding his teams place in Saturdays ACC championship game.
He doesnt want to hear that his club doesnt belong in the game or that its only there because North Carolina and Miami arent eligible. Dont remind him of his squads 6-6 record or that statistically it has almost zero chance of even competing with 13th-ranked Florida State, much less actually defeating the Seminoles.
What Techs fifth-year coach will discuss is that his team is playing for an ACC championship, and that if it wins, the Yellow Jackets will play in their second Orange Bowl under his direction.
Were excited to have the opportunity to go to Charlotte and play in the ACC Championship game, Johnson said. I know its going to be a huge challenge. Hopefully well have a good week of reparation and go up there and put on a pretty good shot. Thats our intention Its a great opportunity for us.
Incredibly, a team that allowed 40...

Yes, we know rumors have circulated that included the likes of North Carolina, Georgia Tech, Kansas, and Virginia... Oh, and that's just to name a few. However a respected reporter and blogger in the DC area is reporting that trusted and good sources are telling him that both Georgia Tech and Virginia are set to leave the ACC and become the 15th and 16th members of the conference...
Expansion is a long and winding road with many twists and turns. Some are well marked with road signs “Dangerous Curves Ahead” or “Increased Buyout Looming” but some are chock full of hidden pot holes and dead-end side roads.

Hey there is an actual football game Saturday! The ACC Title game in Charlotte between Georgia Tech and Florida State. There’s still an Orange Bowl trip at stake, and with the Kent St. loss the likely opponent looks like Louisville.
I’m sure the Orange Bowl, and John Swofford are rooting for Florida State to win tomorrow rather than have a 7-6 Georgia Tech team representing the...
A look back at the keys to track and how the Illini responded to each against Georgia Tech.
It was acold evening in Charlotte for the ACC championship game. Not so much for me and my northern blood traveling south for the day, but certainly for anyone from the deeper south than I. Like Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher, for instance.
Moments after the final seconds ticked off the clock to wrap up Florida State’s first ACC championship since 2005, holding on to beat...
For the first time in the history of the ACC Championship, Florida State and Georgia Tech will meet for the conference title. Despite being...
Florida State has no option but to stop the option - if the Seminoles want to win their 13th ACC title.
Jimbo Fisher said Friday the key to the Seminoles winning another Atlantic Coast Conference championship and clinching an automatic bid to the Orange Bowl is shutting down Georgia Tech's triple option offense.
The 13th-ranked Seminoles (10-2, 7-1 ACC) are two-touchdown favorites...
When you win an ACC championship, ESPN waits for you to check your text messages.
From the day Jimbo Fisher took over for the legendary Bobby Bowden, he had a plan to return Florida State to greatness on a regular basis last seen in the 1990s. On Saturday night, with Florida State hanging on against upset-minded Georgia Tech in the ACC Championship Game for a 20-15 win, Fisher...
CHARLOTTE, N.C. An Atlantic Coast Conference championship that was seven years in the making turned out to a be a nail-biter.
And in what he admits is likely his final game on the Florida State sideline, Mark Stoops had his defense turn in a memorable performance to wrap up the programs first conference title since 2005.
Safety Karlos Williams had a game-clinching interception...

It’s been a crazy week around the Florida State campus and the ACC as a whole, and on Wednesday my old buddy Coley Harvey of the Orlando Sentinel stopped by to break it all down.
Coley and I discussed a number of Florida State related topics, including Mark Stoops’ departure to coach Kentucky, the Seminoles...
