Georgia Tech rolls Louisville, 46 - 27: Instant Reaction

For as much props as you could give the defense in the way they rebounded in the Pitt game, they played an uninspiring brand of football that was highlighted once again by poor tackling and missed assignments in coverage.

The defense surrendered 45 points and 450 yards to a Georgia Tech offense who isn’t even two years removed from running the triple option.

That last point could not be better exemplified than when Georgia Tech took the lead for good on Jeff Sims’ 19-yard pass to Jahmyr Gibbs.

Instead of allowing Georgia Tech to kick a chip shot field goal that would have only put them up by a very manageable two points with nine minutes left in the game, the coaching staff allowed Georgia Tech a second chance at scoring, although from a further distance, which they did anyways, of course.

How this Louisville offense, which is loaded with blazing speed and talented skill players, couldn’t even manage to make this a shootout is beyond frustrating.

It’s not hard to imagine Louisville returning from South Bend after next week with a 1-4 record as they prepare for what will certainly be a desperation game for both teams when FSU comes to town.
