Thursday night delight: Clemson and Georgia Tech give us a thriller

If you read the VFA's Twittering during the Clemson- Georgia Tech game, you'll find out that we didn't exactly expect it to end up as the nail-biting thriller that it was.

After two brilliant special teams plays - including a touchdown pass from kicker Scott Blair, a monster run to the house from Louisville transfer Anthony Allen, and a field goal, Georgia were 24-0 and laughing.

Seriously, Clemson was pulling off the biggest choke job since the Bobby Knight affair at Indiana University.

Then, the Tigers woke up. Suddenly it was the Yellow Jackets' secondary that was looking exposed, and CJ Spiller cut the deficit to 24-7.

Then, it was all purple and orange. On a background of a Georgia Tech whiteout (Penn State's whiteouts are cooler, by the way!), this was the team that stood out, and Clemson reeled off 17 unanswered second half points to tie the game at 24.

At that point, the VFA wanted to cancel his Twitter post, or at least use the Bobby Knight simile to talk about Georgia Tech, or say something about dumping in the bed.

Clemson took the lead 27-24 with a 53 (that's right!) field goal, and suddenly it was Georgia Tech who had to come back. With all the firepower in the backfield and a decent quarterback Josh Nesbitt, Tech wasn't going to lose this, was it?

27-27 from 34 yards.

Then, Tech makes the stop, gets the ball back, and rolls down the field for a last second field goal by Scott Blair. Yeah, the kicker.

By the end of the game, we were exhausted. Too much Twittering, too much yelling, and far too much cheering for nobody in particular. It wasn't as exciting as Florida State and Miami- but as games go, it's yet another game to remember.
