The Paul Johnson Quote Of The Week So Far

Based on personal experience, here's every Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets fan:

We should throw out of the shotgun more. We should run to the left more. Here's what you do: put Tevin Washington in at C-back and slide Orwin Smith under center and let Tevin run the option from wherever the C is. My calculations show we need more slants. Just imagine: all of the A- and B-backs on one side of the ball -- we'll call it the single option. The only thing missing from this offense that has evolved over the past 25 years is a particular kind of screen pass that worked on Monday Night Football. We should never throw out of the shotgun.

And here's Paul Johnson:

(He sort of went off topic in answering this question and was sharing a pet peeve about how some fans will e-mail him and make suggestions or ask him if he's thought about a certain strategy. "Yeah, we know that. We watched the tapes," he said, mimicking his answer. "We're here, like, 14 hours. ‘Did you think about this?' I thought about everything that you can think of, I think." I've heard or read North Carolina basketball coach Roy Williams say something similar, something to the effect that he feels like someone giving him coaching advice is sort of like him giving a doctor medical advice.)
