Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets head coach Paul Johnson called out some members of his team for a "lack of competing" in their 42-10 loss to the Georgia Bulldogs on Saturday. Johnson has made several remarks about poor effort from members of the team this season.

Saturday's loss by Georgia Tech was their 11th in their past 12 games against their hated in-state rival. Most of those games have been relatively close, unlike this past one. The Yellow Jackets had chances to score and keep the game close early, but two turnovers in Bulldog territory seemed to take the air out of the ball for the Yellow Jackets.

Despite giving "demerits" to members of the offense, defense, and special teams, Johnson did say that B-back David Sims played probably his best game of the season against Georgia.

The Yellow Jackets will play Florida State on Saturday in the ACC Championship Game in Charlotte, NC.
