Attaochu expected to play for Georgia Tech

Outside linebacker Jeremiah Attaochu is expected to play Saturday against Miami, Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson said Wednesday after practice.

“I think he’s good to go,” Johnson said.

While inside linebacker Daniel Drummond was cleared to play from his injury for last Saturday’s loss to Virginia but did not play, Johnson said that Attaochu would start if he is cleared. Attaochu, like Drummond, sustained a leg injury in the Oct. 1 N.C. State game and has missed the past two games.

“We’ll just have to see exactly what level he’s in in his comfort level, but I don’t know why he wouldn’t (start) if he can go,” Johnson said.

How long did you work on that, GO JACKETS?

I hope JA is fully healthy. We need him, but I’d rather wait another game for him to be 100% than have him at 80%.

GS, A healthy JA would be a good boost to the D. It’s good to have Drummond back as well.

I worked on it for about 15 seconds, waiting on the CPJ show to come on in about 14 minutes

One of the starting DT’s for the U is suspended for Saturday. Hopefully that’ll help our run game.

It probably also means if we win, the game won’t count to the trolls.

I love the call in show, GO JACKETS. I’ll be listening on 106.7 from now on, though, as I only give 790 my ears now for Wes Durham’s show.

GS Miami was having defensive issues before the suspension. I just hope Tech’s D can step up and makes some positive plays.

George Stein, I’m with you. Attaochu is such an important player I hope he truly is 100%.

Ken, you are the hardest-working man in sports. Thanks for all the info, particularly love the links to other newspaper outlets, blogs, etc.

I look for Tech’s offense to get back to being efficient and operating on all cylinders this weekend. Keep the ball, score often and get back from Miami with a win!

OJF, this is the first time I have listened to it. I never think about it, but somebody mentioned it a few minutes before it started, so I figured I would check it out. Always good to get CPJ’s take on things.

It works! This is the only way I can get the station, and I’m not that far away. I wish they would move stations, away from Dimino and Cellini. Those guys were stale 20 years ago.

Even though reception was no better, back when everything was on WGST, it was much better, because Tech actually owned the station.

Fortunately, with the exception of a couple of years when nobody in Augusta did anything about it, we have always been able to get the Tech games here. I have listened to many a Tech game outside on a nice Saturday afternoon, both before and after I went to school there.
