Georgia Tech vs. Georgia: Paul Johnson's frustrations shine through in postgame comments

The Yellow Jackets were completely flattened by the Bulldogs on Saturday, and head coach Paul Johnson wasn't too pleased.

The Georgia Bulldogs embarrassed the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets on Saturday in a 42-10 win in Athens, and Yellow Jackets head coach Paul Johnson didn't express much enthusiasm with his team's performance afterward.

The Yellow Jackets gained 426 total yards, but scored a season-low ten points due to a tough Georgia defense and two turnovers, including one on the Bulldogs' goal line.

Their defense was ritualistically dismantled as well, as Aaron Murray threw for two touchdowns and freshman running backs Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall both ran for two touchdowns. Johnson told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that the entirety of his team's performance was disheartening.

"Anytime you lose, the whole stuff bothers you. I think the penalties, the turnovers, the self-inflicted stuff bothers me the most, that we can't call a formation and play together that we can't run on (the correct snap count), that we can't run a play without holding. All those things bother me."

The Yellow Jackets' leader also became a little peeved when a reporter asked him a question about the field position battle.

"Really? Were you watching the game? Do you think it mattered where they got the ball?"

After the disheartening performance, the Yellow Jackets now must wait to see if they will be selected for a bowl game. Their best option appears to be the Sun Bowl.
