It was a first, that’s for sure. After having to wait over 40 minutes for Utah at last year’s Sheriff’s Posse Dinner, Georgia Tech head coach Paul Johnson wasn’t about to accept another Pac-12 diss to start his second straight Hyundai Sun Bowl experience. So, after waiting 40 minutes for USC to show up for the annual kickoff feed and talent show, he put officials on notice — 10 more minutes and the Yellowjackets would say, “Adios!”
The 10 minutes came and went. And so did Georgia Tech.
