Almost a century ago when nobody even cared about football other than Michigan and OSU, Tech was headed by coach Heisman. They won 3 of their 4 Natl titles before '53. In recent years the Yellow Jackets have been dominated by their rival UGA, losing 7 straight times '91-97 and '01-07 until the 2008 season in a fluke 3 point victory. Most fans talked crap for a full year afterwards, even though a month later they were blown out 38-3 in the Chik-Fil-A bowl by LSU, which UGA beat by 14 pts @ Baton Rouge.
Techs 2009 dream team under Paul Johnson lost once again at home to UGAs worst team of the decade (not to mention UGAs star offensive player didnt even play). Georgia Tech then went on to lose in the 2009 Orange Bowl (they did have a good record because they play mostly weak ACC teams) to Iowa, and the dream team was dead after nearly all the teams talent went pro in the 2010 NFL draft.
