Richt outcoached by Johnson? Not So.

After Mark Bradley goes #2, he tries to clean a hole in the ground rather than his own buttocks. 

I honestly don’t know how Bradley can type a column holding Paul Johnson’s hand the whole time.

I know the Senator and others have linked to these gems from Mark Bradley. 

The first thing anyone reads in this column is a caption under the a picture of the two coaches shaking hands at midfield.  The caption reads: One guy coached a winning game. The other coach won.

Mark, listen…I know you and all the Tech fans love the video game decision at the end to let Ealey score.  I must admit, it was shrewd.  But it was a desperation move.  It was akin to throwing up Hail Marys at the end of the game.  I liked the odds of being up by 8 with just over a minute to go in the game. 

The One guy coached a winning game. The other coach won. comment is one that is just really is stupid.  Team A in its recent game had twice as many penalties for 3 times as many yards as Team B and the turnover margin was -2.  I would say Team A wasn’t very well coached.  This same team has for the year 55.6 penalty yards per game and a negative turnover margin.  Meanwhile, another team has a positive turnover margin (tied for 1st in their conference) and 42.5 penalty yards per game.  I would say “Team B” was the better coached team. 

Yes, you guessed it.  Coach Johnson is the coach of Team A.

The second article talks about how great the Tech fans feel about their coach after a loss.  That must be the difference between Georgia and Georgia Tech…moral victories still count for something in Atlanta.  Because we played Florida really close, rallied from 14 down and came up just short;  I didn’t feel good about anything Sunday coming home from the Golden Isles. 

I am not saying that Paul Johnson is not a good coach-he is.  But last year when Coach Richt’s teams were turning the ball over and getting penalties, it was his fault.  This year, Coach Johnson’s team played a less disciplined game than Coach Richt’s, and yet Bradley thinks Tech fans should be happy.

Is Bradley trying to make the point that  Tech is happy to accept a mediocre football team as long as they beat Georgia? 

We also learned yet again anything Mark Bradley writes is full of hyperbole and myth.

    Bradley’s job is to get hits on and his daily attacks on Richt serve that purpose. If Tech fans are so thrilled with their coach why didn’t they show up in Athens Sat. night thinking he would outcoach Richt enough to win the game? Bradley giving Johnson credit for letting Georgia score as some brilliant coaching move proves there is no other reason to brag on him. They rushed for 400+ yards and LOST! Is that great coaching?

    Last year was the epitome of Tech football. ACC Conference Champions but still get beat by a UGA team with a poor record.
