This should come as no surprise. The 2015 Yellow Jackets were so close to being a decent team but were never able to win games. Georgia Tech fans had extremely high hopes for the reigning Orange Bowl champs and preseason Coastal favorites but were more than disappointed by the outcome of the season.
The 2015 season started off with a bang when the Jackets found themselves 2-0 after outscoring their two previous opponents by a score of 134-15. Yeah, the two teams were Alcorn State and Tulane, but the team was appearing to pick up exactly where it left off in 2014 and was sitting at 14th in the AP rankings. That is until a trip to South Bend resulted in a 22-30 loss for Georgia Tech in a game that wasn’t as close as the scoreboard portrays. It was the first of a five-game losing streak for the Jackets – but the coaches and fans weren’t ready to give up on the team yet, as three of the five losses were games where Tech could’ve easily found themselves winners.
The team finished 3-9 with losses to rivals such as North Carolina, Clemson, Virginia Tech, Miami, and Georgia. It wasn’t all bad, though. One thing we did get out of the worst season in the Paul Johnson era was the Miracle on Techwood, a play that will never be forgotten for as long as Georgia Tech has a football team. Not only that, but Bobby Dodd saw an average of 50,706 fans in easily the worst season under Paul Johnson – so fan support didn’t get as bad as it probably should have gotten.
