Georgia Tech’s Student Government Association is sponsoring a “White Out” for this Saturday’s noon game against N.C. State, putting pom-poms or shakers in student seats and asking all fans to wear white.
That may seem a bit strange to some as N.C. State will exercise its right as the visiting team to wear the jersey color of its choice – white.
Tech will wear either gold jerseys, or, for the first time since losing to LSU in the Chik-fil-A Bowl after the 2008 season, blue tops.
The book on Isaiah
Safety Isaiah Johnson, the only true freshman starting for Tech, was caught peeking into the backfield last Saturday when UNC quarterback T.J. Yates completed a long touchdown pass. It was a teaching point.
“He was in the right place . . . things move faster at this level, and we talk about playing with your eyes,” said secondary coach Charles Kelly. “If you don’t have your eyes in the right spot, all it takes is a second. When you play in the secondary, if you let things like that ruin you . . . you’re done. Once it happens, you’ve got to forget it.”
Not a European soccer team
N.C. State reserve defensive tackle Markus Kuhn of Weinheim, Germany, will miss Saturday’s game with a knee injury. Wolfpack offensive tackle Mikel Overgaard of Weiser, Idaho, will miss his second straight game with an elbow injury. . . . Wolfpack senior kicker Josh Czajkowski of Springfield, Va., has made 85.3 percent (29 of 34) of his field goal tries, and 88 of 90 PATs.
