This time of year, Fridays usually mean looking forward to Georgia Tech football the next day. This Friday, however, is a look back, since we played last night, against the Cavaliers of Virginia. Okay, "played" really means "throttled."
Yellow Jackets Dominate Virginia, 24-7
Granted, Virginia played terribly, especially their offense. But the Jackets looked really good, and not just in contrast to UVA. Calvin Johnson (cue angel chorus) had the best game of his career in total receiving yards, plus he had his career longest touchdown reception. And all this coming off an injury from last weekend's game. Reggie Ball looked great, too, with some much needed consistency and a few beautiful passes. He even ran the ball in for a touchdown. To top it all off, it was a wonderful autumn evening for football.
The Jackets now have nine days to prepare for their first away game of the season, at Virginia Tech.
