Attaochu, Young out of lineup for MTSU

Georgia Tech will be without two key defensive regulars Saturday against Middle Tennessee State. Outside linebacker Jeremiah Attaochu and cornerback Louis Young are not expected to play due to injuries. Young suffered an upper-body injury last Saturday against Miami. Attaochu’s injury is undisclosed.

Neither practiced this week. Attaochu is seventh on the team in tackles. He will probably be replaced in the lineup by redshirt freshman Tyler Marcodes. Young, who has been playing as the No. 3 corner, is one of Tech’s most versatile defensive backs. True freshman cornerback D.J. White will likely play Saturday for the first time, losing his redshirt. He and Chris Milton are listed as backups on the depth chart behind starters Rod Sweeting and Jemea Thomas.

Without Young, outside linebacker Brandon Watts or safety Jamal Golden could also move into the nickelback spot, which will almost certainly be necessary Saturday. Middle Tennessee State runs a spread offense that features four-receiver sets.

At this point can we really even consider Young a regular?

Any chance of seeing Holton this year?

Gotta believe the Jackets would be 4-0 with Young and Holton healthy from the get-go and in the lineup.
Oh well, “if and buts, candy and nuts”.

Jackets better not have a hangover tomorrow or we’ll be sitting at 2-3 for sure.

If the offense struggles early tomorrow with TW, look for Vad to play alot(and maybe the rest of the year).
We have got to get Lee ready for next year, sooner rather than later in my opinion. We’ll probably finish with the same record this year no matter which QB plays. It’s next year’s record that will be affected by how much Lee plays this year.

Attachou might be out for Clemson also, he looked to have a sprained knee in the Miami game.

Even if he is back for Clemson I doubt he’ll be 100%, and for that game he’ll need to be able to chase that RB Ellington all over the field.

We were told this was CPJ’s deepest team, I guess we’ll find out this yr.

BTW other teams have lost just as many if not more games from their players due to various reasons, it is all part of CFB ,that is why you Recruit for Depth.

I’ll bet all my detractors are wishing now that Synjin Days had been moved to Safety at the start of Fall Camp, now he’s 3rd on the depth chart at A-Back( no longer listed as a QB) and even our best A-Back Orwin Smith only gets 6 touches per game from scrimmage, CPJ is wasting a 6-2 215lb. elite athlete for mop-up duty when he could really push those Safeties we have for serious PT (25-30 snaps per game).

When Co-Ray Carlson gets beat vs. MTSU don’t say I didn’t tell you so.

Our Depth in the 2ndary is very poor, CPJ is really selfish to keep Days on Offense when all of his big-time Offers out of HS were as a Safety, mostly at Strong Safety.

CPJ would rather continue to pull-RSs for guys in the 2ndary and put inexperienced guys out there than to put Days out there, as a former QB he can probably identify pass routes even better than he did coming out of HS, I think it is a win-win to play Days at safety.

But everyone else Criticizes me and sides with our Genius HC.

Such is life when you are of the few GT Fans that actually understand CFB.

Cmon fellas im a uga fan for life and i have taken more than my fair share of shots at tech on these blogs but you guys need to stay behind your team worry about next year after the bowl game or after the uga loss. Its alot of football left this season you never know what can happen. Remember the players read these blogs

Days would prbly make a good safety(not the kind that Orwin made) but 4 games in is prbly too late for that. They shouldve done that in spring or fall camp.

@WnE – The other day you blasted Attachou and said he gave-up on the OT play against Miami. Now you’re saying he looked to have a sprained knee in that game?

Wasn’t Tyler Marcodes the UM recruit who swapped to Tech after Golden was hired, because they wanted him to play another position?
Glad that they are leaving Young and Attaochu put for the game. No need to play em if they aren’t 100%. Let em rest up for the Klempsum game.

Jan, I guess you left before I could respond. Was going to tell you how to get together with some of us bloggers if you are interested. If you check this later, several of us will be tailgating in the lot behind the Varsity, although I don’t know how you would find us. But if you sit in the upper east deck, stop by Section 225, Row 26, seats 1-3 at some point and say hi. If not, then check with me next week and I will give you an email address to get in touch with me, and maybe you can meet up with us at the BC game

His name is Tyler Marcordes and he is a beast. Probably would have ended up at Illinois had he not chose GT. He could step in and play qb for us to. WNE is right on, get Synjn on the field. What a shame he’s being wasted like this. TW is like the movie NAPOLEAN DYNAMITE, super slow and keeps getting funnier the more I watch.

TW is super slow and can’t throw a football to save his life… Yet he scored 3 TDs and threw long strikes to Zenon and Greene that got us back in the game. Y’all would have been screaming for TW had he been benched in the UM game. I want to win some more this season rather than focus on what might happen next year.

Jane, you ignorant slut….

Synjyn at safety still is a stupid idea. He came to Tech to play offense. That’s why he chose Tech. He didn’t beat out the other QBs for the starting spot but you don’t hear anything about him belly aching, transferring, etc.

And Jane, to stand behind your alias and predict that Corey Carlson gets beat is a feckless act of spite. This kid is a walk on, over achiever who played his way onto the depth chart and now sees game action.

I say CC will crush somebody today. EVERY DB gets beat. Predicting it requires no brains. Calling out CC before he gets his chance is cowardly and completely out of bounds at any level. grade school, high school, college, whatever.

You make me want to puke on your face…

where’d the white helmets go? they will win, the gold has proven to be the loser’s choice b/c I will not watch alma mater in gold helmets unless they are in a gold helmet theme game, and Tech needs me to watch, as proven last week against Miami when I saw the gold helmets and then turned tv off; there is no more gold from Dahlonega; it was all used up on the capital dome; I’m warning Tech right now, they better get back with the unis from the first two games; when they switch unis like they did for LSU in the Chik Bowl, they provide a shock to viewers which is annoying since the viewers are accustomed to how Tech looked all season long when they played so well
