ATLANTA - These are not high times at Georgia Tech. The Yellow Jackets have seen their shot at the ACC Championship game vanish. Yet even with a trip to Duke on deck, head coach Paul Johnson says there are reasons to look up.
There is that grudge match with Georgia looming Nov. 26 in Atlanta, and the No. 23-ranked Jackets (7-3, 4-3 ACC) can still reach 10 wins, too. That hasn't happened often.
Johnson, in fact, has looked that up. He says it's "happened exactly three times in 50 years." The coach says there is still a lot to play for and even though Georgia Tech can't win the ACC title, "you don't quit. You compete."
