Paul Johnson On A Record Bigger Than The Miami Heat Win Streak


The Miami Heat win streak ended at 27 games on Wednesday, falling short of the 1971-’72 Los Angeles Lakers’ mark of 33 straight.

While that Laker record looks invincible, this recent Miami Heat win streak certainly brought some vulnerability to one of sports’ greatest feats. Perhaps one day, a team will break that record.

There does stand one record that can almost assuredly never be approached, let alone broken. Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets head coach Paul Johnson tweeted a reminder that his program boasts a truly untouchable entry in the annals:

Georgia Tech’s 222-0 pasting of Cumberland College in 1916 will never be duplicated. For some context on just how ridiculous that outcome is, consider this year’s West Virginia Mountaineers – Baylor Bears shootout set the recent benchmark for combined points in what has been an offensive era. The two went for 133 points between them; 89 fewer than the Yellow Jackets scored.
