10:53 AM ET 09.30 | Georgia Tech did not need overtime to falter Saturday. The Yellow Jackets, uninspired and perhaps still groggy from its second crushing overtime loss of the season a week ago, required only the regulation 60 minutes to capitulate. Tech was force-fed the worst loss of coach Paul Johnson's five-year tenure, a 49-28 defeat to Middle Tennessee State at Bobby Dodd Stadium. MTSU, an FBS school out of the Sun Belt Conference that has produced wins this season over Arkansas (by Louisiana-Monroe) and Kentucky (Western Kentucky), pounded the listless Jackets with 510 yards of offense, forced four turnovers and neutralized Tech with force and energy. On this day, at least, little doubt existed over the identity of the superior team. "I told (MTSU) Coach (Rick) Stockstill after the game (that) they got after us, whipped our butt, and give them some credit, because they played hard," Johnson said. "After saying that, it was embarrassing. I don't think there's any other way to describe it."

Depends on your point of view, I guess. I didn't think it was embarassing, I thought it was funny as hell!

It tells us maybe Miami isn't all that good. We shall see soon enough.

I think it tells us that superior talent is not enough. Passion, effort and will are needed to succeed at this sport. You can't win by just showing up.

How about that ACC. Is there a conference that hasn't spanked an ACC squad? Just this weekend the ACC lost games to the WAC, the BE, and the Sun Belt.
