Live from Georgia Tech’s game against MTSU

It’s break week at Georgia Tech..a time for the students to recharge their batteries. I spent the time when I was a student a few 18 years ago giving my liver a break, but don’t tell my folks.

Some have predicted today’s game against Middle Tennessee State should be a break for Georgia Tech’s football team. That would seem to make sense: Tech is averaging more than 300 rushing yards a game and MTSU is giving up more than 175 rushing yards a game.

But as well as Tech’s offense and defense have been playing the past few quarters, it’s not smart to assume that the Yellow Jackets will blow out anyone this season. There are still too many inconsistencies in all three facets.

However, some of this wrinkles are starting to get ironed out at the right time.

After today’s game against the Blue Raiders, the Yellow Jackets face a tough stretch at Clemson, at Virginia Tech and at home against Miami.

That three-game stretch will determine if the Jackets will get a chance to defend their ACC title in Charlotte.

But, first Tech must dispatch of Middle Tennessee State, a team that keeps shooting itself in the foot with turnovers this season. It has a -1.80 margin this season.

In notes, tackle Phil Smith won’t dress for today’s game. He injured his ankle in last week’s win against Virginia. I would think it’s better to keep him out and let him get healthy, but that’s a guess as to why.

Rashaad Reid is listed second-string at safety. As many of you know, Cooper Taylor left the team this week, presumably because he was no longer playing as much as in the past.

Follow me today, won’t you?

Some notes: Nesbitt needs 150 yards to become the most prolific rushing QB in ACC history. If he hits 23 yards, which is almost a sure bet, he’ll pass Joe Burns for seventh place on the Tech’s all-time career rushing attempts list.

Kicker Scott Blair needs three points to move into seventh on Tech’s all-time career scoring list. With five points, he’ll move into sixth.

That zone-read running play MTSU just called for 16 yards is the same play that S.C. State and Kansas ran often earalier this season

GT defense forces a three and out. They tried to blitz on 3rd and 11, but the players were starting from 20 yards back. Jefferson with a good tackle.

GT takes over at its 27

Allen fumbles and MTSU takes over. Now at GT’s 38

Couldn’t tell from the replay what happened on the fumble. Allen was in the pile trying for more yards when MTSU’s players were pointing the other way.
That’s 9 lost fumbles for Tech this season.

No. The radio stations do not broadcast the games via the internet. I do not know why espn3 is not broadcasting the audio. The other espn3 games audio is working. I heard that Drad had something to do with the radio stations not being able to make the audio of the games available over the internet. Not sure if he did the same with ESPN3???

Serious kudos to anyone who knows how to get an audio feed!

You’ll notice the commercial audio works fine – just no audio for the game! Really chaps my arse if DRAD will not allow the radio stations to broadcast over the internet.

We’ve had audio on ESPN3 earlier this season so it must be a technical problem.

Ok, lost the game now too. Wonder if that means they’re trying to fix it or if ESPN3 is just FUBAR
