After a tough open to the season for Georgia Tech in a loss to Clemson, the energy surrounding the program hasn't died down as they push towards their home opener this weekend against USF.

Georgia Tech Head Coach Geoff Collins joined John Fricke and Hugh Douglas on Wednesday morning and spoke about the opening loss and what he's learned about his team in one game.

"We competed and stayed together in a hostile environment. There's some things we need to clean up, 11 years offensively in one system and now we're making a huge transition, one of the biggest in college football in a long time," explains Collins. "We'll continue to see development on that side of the ball. Defensively 9 of their plays led to half of their yards, we'll continue to get better."

Hugh Douglas also asked Coach Collins why we didn't see the pro-style passing offense we had expected from Georgia Tech. 

"We've got really good offensive coaches that are taking what we inherited and trying to make the absolute best for what our guys do and do well," says Geoff Collins. "We're traditionally a 50% throwing organizations, but as we keep developing the pass protections and schemes we'll continue to improve. Proud of the offensive line transitioning from fundamental and schematic techniques to a spread pro-style system and they're getting better every day."

Coach Collins also addressed his QB play and the path for improvement for them.

"Tobias ran the ball well, Graham in the 2nd half was dropping some dimes, but it's got to be a process that we're going through."
