Young held out of Sun Bowl for Tech

Georgia Tech cornerback Louis Young will not play in the Sun Bowl for disciplinary reasons, coach Paul Johnson said Monday.

Johnson declined to elaborate, but did say that the discipline may extend past the bowl game.

“We’ll see,” Johnson said. “For now, he’s not eligible for the bowl game.”

Young will be replaced by Jemea Thomas in the starting lineup. Jamal Golden or Mike Peterson are the likely replacements at the No. 3 cornerback spot.

That’s a crying shame. Louis Young is one of our best corners. Hopefully, he will learn from this and be a role model for the younger kids next year.

Grades or team rules violation? Given the timing, seems like grades. Hope it’s correctable.

I can’t believe that one of GT’s Angels that happen to play CFB got into trouble that would cause a suspension.

The rest of the GT fans (not me of course) would say that “xyz HC from ABC FB-Factory has been Recruiting THUGS”.

Kinda amazing how KARMA works in Sports, no sooner than the GT Fanbase runs their mouths about players at other schools being THUGS, lo & behold we have starter and our best DB being suspended for our Bowl Game with the possibility of the suspension lasting longer.

Remember KARMA before you run your mouth with negative comments about your opponents.

this happens every year for GT as the prep for bowl games. Each year, a key player is ruled out or held out for grades or disciplinary reasons. Doesn’t account for the astronomical amount of losses in the bowls, but it sure doesn’t help.

I was wondering if I should put 50 on the dawgs next year? With the reverend having a new ten year contract and the dawgs high on themselves good time for a beatdown.

Imagine Crowell will sit the game out with a hangnail.

Why is GT always so “hush-hush” about things that happen within their FB Program?

Whereas whenever something goes down at our In-State rival, a LOT of details usually come forth.

Why does GT seem to like HIDE everything from the Media.

They were hush-hush when Drummond got clipped for a year for being a scumbag, cheating STEROIDS user.

In A. Ebugniwe’s(sp?) Jr. year he got into fight and beat someone up on campus and the suspension was covered up by GT as he was out for an “injury”.

It seems to me like GT has the same issues as everyone else but they shelter their holier-than-thou fanbase so they can poke their collective chests out about the value of their Elite GT Education.

I wonder will any GT alums call Young a thug and demand that CPJ kick him off the Team, JUST LIKE they always do whenever anything happens at uga?

WnE – we say things like that about schools where players are regularly arrested for drug charges, assaults, and things of that nature. Odds are Young wasn’t involved in anything like that. I doubt it was for grades since the article clearly states “disciplinary reasons”, but I also doubt anyone who plays for CPJ is dumb enough to commit a felony.

Sucks to hear. Must have really screwed up if this could go beyond the bowl game. I think Thomas is up to the task of taking the start and we get a chance to see what Golden is made off.

Given the astronomical amount of passing yards that your joke defense was giving up at the end of the season I would think that you Techies would embrace this news. You could put 4 chimpanzees out on the field and they wouldn’t fare much worse than the secondary that you’ve got.

At any rate, I’m sure Young will learn a very valuable lesson from this. Playing in a low-rent December bowl game that no one on earth cares about is a proud Georgia Tech tradition. He’s going to regret this.

Yeah, it’s a shame he doesn’t get to play in the incredibly prestigious Outback bowl in Tampa Florida where no one cares about College Football. I think I would rather go to a local Outback and get a steak then go to the Outback bowl.
