What Happened to the DEFENSE?

Coming into this season Georgia Tech returned nine starters on what was perceived as the best defense in the ACC this year. How do you give up 47 points to a Clemson team that did nothing different from last year? One would have to say that Clemson did a great job of making this a true rivalry.
