Post-practice notes from Monday. The note on Jeremiah Attaochu’s one-game suspension can be found here.
1. Georgia Tech’s secondary wasn’t on its game last Thursday against Virginia Tech, and will have the opportunity to show better Saturday against Duke.
The Blue Devils do not seem to need much excuse to put the ball in the air. Their 44-56 run-pass ratio tilts the heaviest to pass of any team in the ACC.
“We haven’t played very well” in the secondary, defensive coordinator Al Groh said. “We’ve addressed those things. Once again, we have to prove that we’ve moved on.”
Asked the nature of the problem, Groh replied, “Coverage. Too many big plays.”
The Hokies threw just 13 times but completed seven passes for 209 yards and three touchdowns, including a 63-yard scoring pass at the end of the first half. It was the first time Tech hadn’t produced an interception since playing Kansas in the third game of the season. No Tech opponent has matched Virginia Tech’s game
