ATLANTA (AP) -- Paul Johnson isn't making a big deal about the sudden balance in Georgia Tech's normally run-dominated spread-option offense.
Vad Lee threw four touchdown passes in last week's win at Duke. Before that performance, no Georgia Tech quarterback had thrown four TD passes in a game since 2006 -- two years before Johnson's arrival.
Georgia Tech has ranked at or near the top of the nation's rushing leaders and near the bottom of the passing stats in Johnson's first five seasons.
Lee already has six scoring passes for Georgia Tech (2-0), which plays North Carolina on Saturday. Johnson says he would be more impressed if the Yellow Jackets still have impressive numbers in a few more weeks.
