    GT completes perfect season with BCS title

    All there was left was Troy...a little known school that snuck ahead of powerhouses like Georgia and Tennessee to play GT in the title game. Yeah it was a smalll victory for the small conferences who have been clamoring for their teams to get a shot in the biggest game in college football.

    But it was GT's night. GT had to overcome some tough hurdles with the toughest possibly being the big time matchup against the Tennessee Vols. In that game, their defense came through when needed and was the defining moment for this Yellow Jackets team. "Taking down the two time champs was the hurdle we needed to get over to get to this point," said a smiling Orwin Smith.

    Speaking of Smith, he may have lost the heisman to Georgia QB James Scales but he won the Walker and Maxwell awards for a 2nd straight year and personally put his stamp on this Yellow Jacket season with him being one of the captains of this team from the start of his season. From there he would rush for over 2000 yards with the whip cream being a 244 yard effort with 3TD's on the ground. His big run was a 72 yard scamper where he broke a few tackles and outran the Troy defense for a score. His 3TD's led GT to a 45-13 win over Troy.

    His buddy who convinced him to stay one more year in SR-QB Jordan Luallen played a flawless game. He only threw for 190 yards on the game on 14 completions but also used his legs in this one, rushing for 2TD's in this game. "The seniors who redshirted have won two titles but we've all had a hand in this one," said Luallen. "Me, Dieke, Orwin, Brandon (Watts) all put their collective stamps on this game."

    It's a fitting way to end the season for the Yellow Jackets. They overcame every obstacle, fought tooth and nail through their tough ACC campaign. Overcame the Vols in the matchup for the ages then taking down the Tar Heels who have risen from the ashes to make their program formidable.

    It's safe to say the tide will shift a bit. The big time guys will have moved onto the next level of their lives. Leaving behind is a GT program that has two fresh BCS championships in the mantle. A coach who is on the top of his game and a program that garners national attention. To next year, the biggest coaching job yet for Coach Moreecemos. Awaiting him at home, a new 5 year extensions worth $35 million dollars, making him the richest coach in NCAA history, surpassing Tennessee's coach bruce who's making $6.5 mill per year.

    It's a little anti-climactic playing the cpu, isn't it? But good job keeping the score low, lol.

    Congrats on another one (y)
