Following the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets' 49-28 loss to Middle Tennessee on Saturday, Yellow Jackets head coach Paul Johnson was critical of his teams performance, saying they didn't do anything well.

"The bottom line we didn't do anything really good," Johnson said, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution. "We didn't block very well, we didn't catch, we didn't throw and when you do that and turn the ball over you get beat. That's it in a nutshell, I guess."

Johnson also said his team failed to play with a lot of energy and had "as bad a day tackling as I've seen." He credited Middle Tennessee for playing well, but called the loss embarrassing. The Yellow Jackets were outscored 28-7 in the second half and are now 2-3 on the season.

While Johnson said he was "disappointed" and "embarrassed," he declined to say if he was considering any staff changes. Coming off of back-to-back losses, Georgia Tech has a lot of work to do.

"Clearly we've got issues, we've got issues we have to address, there's no doubt about that," Johnson said.
