I was doing a radio show for a station in Central Florida Wednesday afternoon and the host asked me why I thought Georgia Tech has beaten Miami four consecutive times.
I really had no idea (I know, that’s not uncommon).
Last year’s reason was obvious: Miami had no idea how to stop the option. No idea. But, as has been reported this week, the Canes have made some fundamental differences with how they will line up (closer to the line), and how they’ll attack the line.
But, as for the other four wins, I wasn’t around for those. But you were. If you have a theory, post it below.
Here are the injury reports for tonight’s game:
Out: Jaybo Shaw, So., QB (broken collarbone)
Kyle Jackson, r-So., LB (foot)
Doubtful: Tyler Melton, So., WR (knee)
Questionable: Preston Lyons, r-Jr., BB (shoulder)
Richard Watson, r-Fr., BB (hamstring)
Probable: DE Eric Moncur (lower extremity)
Questionable: WR Aldarius Johnson (lower extremity)
Doubtful: OL Ben Jones (illness)
RB Damien Berry (illness)
Out: DE Adewale Ojomo (jaw)
OL Cory White (lower extremity)
LB Levi Paalua (upper extremity)
DB DeMarcus Van Dyke (head)
DB JoJo Nicolas (illness)
I’m not sure what the difference is between an upper extremity and a head. But there you go.
Lastly, the radio host asked if I thought Tech would make it 5-for-5. I said I didn’t see why not. Running for 400-plus yards on someone isn’t an accident. I’ll be surprised if Tech doesn’t play its most complete game of the year.
