Bedford and Finch are back

Sean Bedford will be able to play in Saturday’s game against Wake Forest, and backup Jay Finch should be available as well, coach Paul Johnson said after Wednesday’s practice.

If, for some reason, they can’t play, Zach Krish and Ray Beno have been getting ready.

Krish was center for the last seven series of last week’s loss to N.C. State.

Krish, a redshirt senior, and Beno, a redshirt freshman, played center in last week’s loss to N.C. State after Bedford left the game with an injury (shin). They split time at the position on Monday and Tuesday.

Krish, a former walk on from South Gwinnett High who earned a scholarship, has played guard and tackle for Tech, but until last week had never worked at center.

He said he’s comfortable with making the line calls because he knows what is supposed to be done, and he feels that the other players on the line recognize that he knows what’s going on.

He’s extremely intelligent (a civil engineering major). Someone said that Krish may be smarter than Bedford, an aerospace engineering major who is considered one of the smartest players in all of college football.

Krish said the toughest part has been getting used to the snapping motion, so he’s been working on that as much as possible this week.

“I’m just trying to play football, is all I’m trying to do,” Krish said. “I’m just trying to learn everything as best I can.”

Beno was struggling this Saturday and Josh was paying a price for that. We had to fill this hole on our line or Wake Forest would exploit that on Saturday. Here’s hoping Krish can hold down the fort.

Doug, I was aware that Bedford got injured in the game, but I didn’t know Finch was hurt as well. Could you update us as to what exactly their injuries are – and when they can be expected to play?

Bedford got kicked during the game. Finch has a hamstring injury. Neither have practiced. Return is unknown. I would think Bedford will return by next week, if he can’t go on Saturday. Not sure on Finch.

We were able to contain your option crap enough last year, when you reached your climax of potency.

This year, not only does your defense suck, your “offense” does too.

Deacon Baller,

Let’s see … 9 wins, including breaking the streak against Georgia in 08 … beat Va Tech and Florida State last year (as well as, hmmm, Wake Forest?), and an ACC championship in 09 … yeah, I’d say the 3O is working out OK.
Thanks for asking.

Sean needs to try to play if he can. Beno did ok last week, but the Center QB exchange needs to be smooth for sure. Krish knows the line calls! That is great but I hope he can get the snap smooth.

I disagree, I think WF has a solid shot at a blowout here. 500+ yards on defense won’t help the ‘3O’ either

I had a few buddies in Civil and do not understand how a football player can have that major and find enough time for either…many labs.

The rain will be gone by Sat PM and it should be cool….wonder if Wake will wear white?

Hope he can make the line calls and have a smooth snap. No offense to Beno but that was killing GT against NC State. KId probably nearly stroked out when Bedford got hurt. Speaking of Bedford how does a kick to the shin do this much damage? Makes me wonder if it was not more of a stomp?

I’m an actual Wake alum who is also a huge Tech fan (a familial requirement).

My take is the Tech O should roll. The Deacs smallish d-line, in combination with a slow bunch of backers should translate into big rushing days for all.

The real question is whether Wake be able to score enough to turn this into the shootout it was last year. This I’m not too sure about. The Deacs struggled against Stanford’s 3-4 and we just got shut out by FSU. But everyone in this space is well aware of the Jacket’s defensive struggles so we’ll see.

The one game where my love for the Jackets waivers. Best of luck to both squads.

Go Deacs!

I’ve been wondering the same Ramblin Man…I had recorded the game on my DVR but when I got home from the game I was disgusted and deleted it thinking I would never want to watch it again. I think it is probably still up on the worldwide leader in sports 3 .com website…but I don’t have access to that at work..only at home. If I can remember I’ll at least watch that one play again and see if there is anything to see.

The question is can Wake score enough to keep it close by the 4th Qt?

krish is in grad school right now mastering in civil engineering and doing very well in the program. its ridiculous that he plays football and takes full load of grad school courses. this kid deserves mad props for his academic endeavors. its nice to see him getting playing time and hopefully he pans out. we could certainly use a conference win after last week.

Joeygt, it’s probably because he’s not blocking a whole heck of a lot. He’s awesome with the ball in his hands, and he’ll get his shots. But, he’s got a little maturing to do and our team REALLY needs better blocking right now.

No way Deacon is an actual Wake fan or even a true college football fan. A Wake fan would not rag on ANYONE’s offense at this point. A true football fan would know that Wake got shutout last week and ROCKED by Stanford. It’s obviously a UGA homer who is oblivious to the fact that they’ve lost three in a row. Don’t worry, it’ll all be over in three months (maybe two the way UGA is playing w/ games still against UT, UF, GT and even Kentucky might be tough). Stay classy dude!

I will never consider colorado a national champion that year… they were given 5 downs to win a game and tech was undefeated!

1990 National Champions Georgia Tech! That’s it.
