Raleigh Hokie’s breakdown of the Georgia Tech game shows how Bud Foster got the better of Paul Johnson. But first, let’s talk about the VT offense vs. the GT defense.
This article is transcribed from a phone interview, and the lines in bold are questions from Chris Coleman.
Let’s start with the offense. I don’t think Logan Thomas had his best game. What was your overall take on Thomas?
No, he struggled. I had some issues watching it live with where he was going with the ball, decision wise. Watching the film didn’t really support that, or reject it either. So it’s hard to say, but he was definitely off in terms of accuracy. I think we were confused by what Georgia Tech was doing. I don’t think they expected them to do what they did. It took him awhile to get mentally adjusted to what he was seeing.
His footwork was a bit off. He made some really poor throws, and that’s just not him. A little bit like last year, he had a few games early on that made people think he should be playing tight end. But he’ll be fine.
I thought he might have been a little keyed up. They used him as a battering ram. I think that could have gotten his adrenaline up, which led to some high throws.
Yeah, it’s certainly possible. He did run a lot those first few plays. He’s not going to shy away from contact. Who knows if that had any impact physically, but yeah, he was definitely wired up.
It seemed obvious that the coaching staff wanted to ease the new running backs into the game. What was your take on their performance?...
