Virginia Vs. Georgia Tech 2012: From The Rumble Seat Reacts To Yellow Jackets Win

Georgia Tech beat the pants off Virginia on Saturday and the Yellow Jackets' fan base couldn't be more excited about it.

Tech's defense was dominant, with its front seven showing vast improvement from last season. Here's some analysis/commentary, courtesy of From the Rumble Seat:

For the second year in a row, Paul Johnson has failed to forget a loss that his team should not have taken the year before, and straight up taken that team to the woodshed. Last year, this happened. This year, a similar deal happened. We were dominated on the ground by Virginia last year. This year, they failed to gain 100 yards. We were a 10-point favorite, and had the spread covered for the entirety of the game after the first quarter. This one was never close. From the first snap, when Georgia Tech threw a pass to Zach Laskey who had his man beaten on a wheel route, you just knew that Georgia Tech would take no prisoners. After 3 offensive plays, Georgia Tech had a 14-point lead, including that 70-yard touchdown pass to Laskey, followed by a 77-yard run by Orwin Smith.

It mushroomed from there.
