Terrence Moore has a thinking problem over Georgia Tech

Fanhouse's Terence Moore has a problem with the comments made by Georgia Tech head football coach Paul Johnson after their surprise loss to Georgia Saturday night. Moore claims that Johnson's comments made it sound like the Yellowjackets were setting their "sights too low."
Here's what Johnson said:

"You can't let one game define a season. Our No. 1 goal is to try to win the ACC. We have an opportunity to play for that (next week against Clemson). Like I said, we're all disappointed. We all understand this is a big game. We all wanted to win the game. It just didn't happen, so you move on."


Moore somehow took that on to mean that Georgia Tech wasn't trying to get higher in the BCS:

A bigger game? If the Jackets say so. With that ACC championship game ahead on Saturday in Tampa, they finished the regular season at a pretty good 10-2 instead of an excellent 11-1 after lacking the mindset (I mean, every game is big for those who truly wish to win a national championship) and the run defense (339 yards rushing to an opponent that was averaging 140 yards rushing per game) against Georgia. As a result, the Jackets aren't poised anymore to challenge Texas and those other five teams that were ahead of them in the Bowl Championship Series standings.

Uh, Terrence...this just in: The Jackets weren't in any position to challenge the teams ahead of them in the BCS before the game. Everybody ahead of them (all the undefeated teams) won their games. So one-loss Georgia Tech moving up wasn't really much of a possibility. They might have jumped Boise St. but that's about it.
And G-Tech's BCS fate is pretty much sealed if they win the ACC Championship next week. They're automatically going to the Orange Bowl. There was no serious possibility for a BCS Championship in the cards. Unless major clusterflocks happen it will be Florida/Alabama vs. Texas for the BCS "Championship," with TCU still having a chance to be the BCS buster if Texas goes down.
Logic has never been Terrence Moore's big strength. Everybody in Atlanta who read him in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution could tell you that. But this claim that Georgia Tech could've been a contender is a whole new level of illogical.
