There was a play in the Georgia game, a game that Georgia Tech lost because Nesbitt got hurt and missed most of the 1st half.
Tech was down 17-7 and Nesbitt was back in. Tech thru a simple little quick pass out to Thomas pretty much right at the line of scrimmage. Thomas took the pass, shook the DB and went 70 plus yards for a TD.
Now, he did not come from a sophisticated passing offense and Nesbitt is certainly not a good passing QB, but when you put up the numbers the kid puts up, you have some ability.
To say it is primarily the offense being the reason the kid put up those type of number is way, way over simplifying things.
Actually, I think to say the numbers he put up means he has ability is oversimplifying. You have to look at everything. He shook one guy and took it to the house? I can only assume that that means they had 8 or 9 in the box...or the safety took a terrible angle.
Does he have talent? Of course. Is he what his numbers say he is? It's a hard case to make based on the fact that defenses were so petrified of their run offense.
Also, playing in the ACC is a joke.
