Georgia Tech News and Notes

*Paul Johnson wants less talk, more actions out of his players.
"When asked if Georgia Tech’s seniors had anything to say to the other players on the plane ride back from Kansas, Johnson said he’d rather see the players lead with their actions on the field"

“It’s easy to talk. I don’t want to see anybody talking,” he said. “I tell them, ‘Show me, don’t tell me.’ We’ll see what they can do on Saturday."

*I still maintain that blocking is Georgia Tech's biggest weakness right now on offense

*“We’ve played two games now, and it’s never as good or as bad as it seems; either way,” Johnson said. “When you win, it’s probably not as good as it should be and when we lost, well, it’s probably not as bad.”

He had to be hot after the loss, but now Johnson needs his team to recollect and focus on the next task at hand.Macon Telegraph has more

*Georgia Tech is hoping to avoid back-to-back losses for the first time in the Paul Johnson era. The Yellow Jackets have not lost consecutive games since the final regular season game and bowl game in 2007. Tech is 7-0 under Johnson following a loss. The Yellow Jackets have won both ACC openers under Johnson and five of their last six.
