What does Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson have to say to those who think his Yellow Jackets backed into this weekend's ACC title game?

"Say whatever you want," he said Sunday during an ACC teleconference in preparation of the game.

The Yellow Jackets finished in a three-way tie atop the ACC's Coastal Division with North Carolina and Miami and benefited from the Hurricanes' recent decision to self-impose a title game ban this season.

"We beat North Carolina head to head, so I'm not concerned about them," Johnson said. "You know, that's something that Miami decided to do. We have no control over it. The only thing we had control over is we were 5-3 in our division. That's not the first time a team 5- 3 in the division has gone to the championship game.  You know, we were 5- 3 and tied for it in '08 and didn't get to play. I think Virginia Tech won the thing. We tied with them. It is what it is."
