Johnson: 'The sky is not falling' on Georgia Tech

 ATLANTA (AP) - Paul Johnson says it's too early to disregard Georgia Tech after its first loss.

Georgia Tech tumbled eight spots to No. 20 after last week's loss to Virginia. Johnson says he's heard others say his Yellow Jackets won't recover.

Not so fast, says Johnson, who on Tuesday said the Yellow Jackets deserve another chance "before you bury us."

Johnson also offered the reminder that Georgia Tech, which plays at Miami on Saturday, is 6-1 and tied for first in the Atlantic Coast Conference's Coastal Division.

He says "The sky is not falling" on the Georgia Tech team. The coach also says there must be improvement in the run defense, passing offense and special teams.
