Plenty of Options at Georgia Tech

Good read in today's Washington Times highlighting coach Paul Johnson's Triple Option offense that he brings to Tech after using it to post a 107-39 record at Georgia Southern and Navy.

Seeing it in action at Rutgers last year was a thing of wonder as the Midshipmen gave the favored Scarlet Knights a run. Should be fun to see how it translates in the ACC.

Says Johnson: "If we can execute the system, we can be pretty good," Johnson said. "It's been pretty good for a lot of years. That's why I kind of scoff and laugh when people say, 'This ain't gonna work.' It ain't like we're doing something that's never been done. We've been doing it for 20 years. It's worked at three different schools pretty good."

Georgia Tech Football Blog brings us Johnson's interview at the ACC kickoff meeting.

this is what is great about the college game. the NFL is the same thing over and over (of course i love it too). the spread-option game in college ball is a real treat to watch. Once RichRod gets sick of Michigan (over under = 5 years) i predict his inevitiable move to the NFL (Redskins, mayhap?) and try to do the zone-option in the nfl.
