Georgia Tech Gameday - Week 4
Miami (2-1) once again goes on the road, this time to face the Ramblin' Wreck of Georgia Tech (2-1). Remember that long losing streak UM had against them? Well, if the Canes win this game they will finally have winning record against Georgia Tech (series is 4-4) since joining the conference in 2004. GT has opened up as a 2 touchdown favorite. That's some disconcerting **** to take, especially from a team we've dominated 3 years in a row. Whatev.

What people were saying after our glorious victory:
We weren't around at this time last year so I turned to CanesOverHere again for reference.
Gables said:A tip of the cap to D'Onofrio and our front 7. I fully expected us to need 40 to win today, and I'm still in shock we held them to 7. Spence is the man, and Perryman is a monster in the making. I'm really fired up about this one. Now lets hang 50 on those c0cksuckers this Thursday.
Excellently put Gobbles. If we win, I want everyone to read that quote again. Everyone was sure we were going to lose last year. And when we won convincingly, everyone thought our defense had turned a corner. That's what made the loss to "those c0cksuckers" the following Thursday more frustrating. Starting to get jammed up about last year all over again.

What they're saying:
LilBroey700 said:1. Miami Run Defense vs. Georgia Tech Run Offense. Miami's run defense has been far from impressive in the past two games, giving up over 200 yards in each game against teams that don't really have much business running for that much yardage. They're young, and missing arguably their best defensive player in LB Denzel Perryman. If they don't come in with a solid game plan and execute well, it could be a long afternoon on the Flats for the Hurricanes.
Dude pretty much nails it. Their fans have to be licking their chops for this game.
1. Seantrel Henderson is trying to move beyond his rocky offseason.
2. The coaching staff is trying to be careful with Duke's touches.
3. What little bit of depth UM has left on defense will be tested.
1. Georgia Tech's offense is starting to click.
2. Long Snapper Tyler Morgan will wear No. 40 in honor of Julian Burnett.
3. Paul Johnson is trying to keep his team's confidence in check.

Allen Hurns and Vaughn Telemaque are expected back, which is good. However, this is the 13th different starting lineup on defense since Al Golden became coach (16 games).
|Denzel Perryman||LB||Ankle||Out Indefinitely - 9/17/12||Perryman was got an MRI following the Bethune-Cookman game and was diagnosed with a deep bone bruise and high ankle sprain.|
|Raphael Kirby||LB||Leg||Out Indefinitely - 9/17/12||Kirby broke his leg back in August and is yet to play this season.|
|Andrew Swasey||S||Leg||Out Indefinitely - 9/17/12||Swasey apparently got hurt his "lower extremity" during the Bethune-Cookman game.|
|Curtis Porter||DL||Appendix||Out Indefinitely - 9/10/12||Porter missed every game this season because he is recovering from an appendectomy. He remains questionable to play this week.|
|Sean McNally||LS||Knee||Out for season - 9/17/12||McNally injured his knee on punt coverage after our first possession against Bethune-Cookman. The required surgery has ended his season.|
|Ramon Buchanan||LB||Leg||Out for season - 9/10/12||Cookie's career is pretty much done. He apparently suffered some injury during the Kansas St. game, no clue when it happened.|
Sum of All Fears. Jimmy Gaines is the most experienced linebacker on that depth chart. Hey remember way back in August when everyone thought our starting 3 at linebacker was going to be Kirby - Perryman - Buchanan? I need a drink.
Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets
|Charles Perkins||RB||Upper Body||Out Indefinitely - 9/18/12||Perkins will be sidelined indefinitely due to an upper body injury. Coach Paul Johnson said he doesn't expect the sophomore to be back anytime soon. Perkins missed the Virginia game with the injury after starting the season opener.|
|Daniel Drummond||LB||Ankle||Questionable - 9/18/12||Drummond had been suspended 1.5 games by the Yellow Jackets after pleading guilty during the off season to boating under the influence. The inside linebacker missed the season opener against Virginia Tech and the entire game against Presbyterian. The redshirt junior started 6 games last season. Drummond now has an ankle injury and is questionable for the game against Miami.|
|Fred Holton||SS||Undisclosed||Questionable - 9/18/12||Holton missed his 3rd straight game last week and most likely will miss the upcoming game according to coach Paul Johnson. The sophomore had 11 tackles last year as a true freshman but has been out since fall practice. Coach Johnson didn't give a timeline on when Holton might return.|
Heading back to Atlanta...we thought we killed them last time.
Gonna make sure the dead stay dead.
Lets Go Canes!
