As you can see from this fan he believes that backup to Vad Lee this year, Justin Thomas, is going to be a lot better option QB than Lee was capable of being. He also mentions that Lee transferring may be best for the program as a whole and not just best for Lee as a player.

This fan is prepared to move on without Vad Lee and he’s really hoping that Justin Thomas can be the guy moving forward for the Yellow Jacket offense. He also believes that Thomas can play just as well as Lee did this year in the triple option offense.

With fans taking to the internet to voice their opinions, one hot topic is Tech head coach, Paul Johnson. Some fans are beginning to call for his head citing that he’s only taking this program downward and that the offense will never be any good running the type of scheme that Johnson has implemented.

Now with the QB situation up in the air again some are starting to wonder is it really time to call it quits for Paul Johnson and his triple option offense, only time will tell.

A couple of more reactions to Vad Lee transferring:

JacobGravittThe biggest issue is that this type of unexpected move just looks bad for the program. As one fan above stated, “Division 1 starting quarterbacks don’t transfer. Its alarming”, and that is absolutely the truth. Whether or not this is Lee’s fault for thinking that his head coach would alter the system for his style of play, or if it’s Johnson’s fault for thinking he could change Lee, the program is now left with a bit of a black eye and bruised ego.
