Middle Tennessee State Vs. Georgia Tech: How Will The Blue Raiders Defend The Wreckbone?

From The Rumble Seat always does a great job of interviewing writers who cover Tech’s weekly opponents. This time around, they had a word with Austin Middle of gomiddle.com.

A portion:

FTRS: How are the Blue Raiders prepping for Paul Johnson’s option offense?

AM: The Blue Raiders defense went through extensive drills without the ball during their extra time to practice this week and then spent time going through plays with the ball. Historically, the Blue Raider defense has thrived on blitzing and a very aggressive style of play. However, this year the defense has been less aggressive, which could be helpful in trying to stop the triple option.

Tech’s offense has been picked apart by both N.C. State’s fangs-out attack and Kansas’ wait-and-see approach, so it’s hard to say the 2010 Jackets have the versatility to punish any particular set of schemes.

Except for what Virginia did (give the dive). What Virginia did was pretty easy to punish.
