Georgia Tech shut down UNC in the second half
Shhhhhh....Don't tell any one....There's a secret....
Georgia Tech is fourth in the ACC in total defense after week three.
After an abysmal 2009 season stopping opponents, Coach Paul Johnson fired his defensive coordinator and hired Al Groh to install a 3-4 defensive system.
The schematic shake-up led to a shaky start of the season and mix results on the field. But, Tech seemed to slowly catch on and find some answers in a surprisingly well played second half versus UNC.
The Jackets still need improvement with tackling technique and getting off of interior blocks, but glimpses of individual talent give hope that can be found.
Massive DT TJ Barnes had a break-out game, and could be integral in eating space for Tech's LB to make plays.
TJ finding his way on the field more often, is a very good sign for Tech's future on defense.
