The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets were embarrassed by their in-state rivals, the Georgia Bulldogs, on Saturday, 42-10. Quarterback Tevin Washington spoke with the media after the game, and talked about how frustrating the game was.
On the repeated mistakes Georgia Tech made, especially on offense:
"It’s very frustrating because we’ve been preaching all week, Take care of the ball, do the little things right and we’ll give ourselves a chance to be in the ballgame. It just felt like we laid an egg."
Washington finished the game 6-9 for 55 yards, but did not score a touchdown, and only rushed for 20 yards. Despite his quiet game, the Georgia Tech offense racked up 426 yards of total offense. The problem, though, is that they made killer mistakes at the worst moments, preventing them from turning long drives into points.
Washington, on Georgia's four game winning streak over Georgia Tech:
"They won the last four. The only way to get the thing going the other way is to beat ’em. You’ve got to hope next year’s team will be able to come out and hopefully get a win."
No matter how frustrating the game was for Georgia Tech, it doesn't change that they still have to play for the ACC championship against Florida State this upcoming weekend. Any hangover from this game could be lethal for the Yellow Jackets, who will need to play a great game to upset the Seminoles.
