Monday Morning QB

Well, Tuesday morning actually - link here. I don't want to focus on the "bad", but they do get this right - there is plenty of blame to go around for the game ending fiasco.

THE UGLY: Few have seen as ugly a finish as Tech offered up Saturday. Ball spiked the ball on third-and-21 from the Georgia 32, despite having plenty of time to get a play called and off. On fourth down, he threw the ball out of bounds thinking it was third down. The coaching staff, particularly head coach Chan Gailey and offensive coordinator Patrick Nix, certainly deserves plenty of blame for the fiasco as does Ball, who was counting on the stadium scoreboard to tell him what down it was. The game will be remembered for the sequence.
