ATLANTA — Coach Paul Johnson isn't placing special significance on facing Georgia Southern for the first time. It's been 13 years since Johnson, now in his sixth season at Georgia Tech, left the Eagles for the head coaching job at Navy after winning 62 games, five Southern Conference titles and two Division I-AA national championships. "I just know they've got a pretty good football team and if you don't get ready to play, they can beat you," Johnson said Tuesday.
