ACC Schools 2010-2011 Football Previews: Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets

Now in his third season in Atlanta, coach Paul Johnson has perfected the triple-option attack that won him accolades at Division I-AA Georgia Southern and Navy. In senior quarterback Josh Nesbitt, he has the perfect player to run the quirky offense.
There is also a new defensive co-ordinator at Tech in Al Groh, who used to be the head coach at Virginia.
The ACC Coastal is very deep indeed, but the Jackets have effective personnel for its system and after an 11-win season in 2009, morale is running high at Bobby Dodd Stadium.
Nesbitt can do enough with his arm and has the athleticism and acumen to keep this triple-option attack humming. In 6”0, 240 lb Louisville transfer Anthony Allen, Nesbitt also has a perfect bell cow. Defenses are kept guessing with speedy options like junior Marcus Wright and freshman B.J. Bostic. Superb senior C Sean Bedford carves out the running lanes.
On the other side of the ball, leading tackler Brad Jefferson is back, as is the veteran CB tandem of Jerrard Tarrant and Mario Butler. Junior punter Chandler Anderson handles the duties, and does so admirably – his 38.1 yard net average led the conference in ’09.
Regardless of Johnson’s effective scheme, the Tech offense still loses two of its three crucial components last year in RB Jonathan Dwyer and WR Demaryius Thomas. Nesbitt must establish rapport with the new starters. Though there are numerous returners on the D, there aren’t many game-breakers; no returning Tech defender has more than three sacks or two INTs.
The offensive line has a great leader in Bedford, but they must incorporate two new guards in its crafty system.
2010-2011 Georgia Tech Football Prediction: 11-2
An experienced backfield fuelled by Nesbitt and Allen means that Georgia Tech will be a tough customer every week. The stars aligned last season as the Jackets cruised to 11 wins, but that will be a tough act to repeat with road games at North Carolina, Clemson, Virginia Tech and hated rival Georgia.
It’s true that Tech can dispatch of any ACC opponent, but they won’t do it consistently enough in 2010 to grab another double-digit win season.
