Date:

Georgia Tech sophomore RB Marcus Marshall, the school's leading rusher over the last two seasons, has elected to transfer to another program.

Marshall rushed for 654 yards in 2015 and 624 yards in 2016, both team highs. Marshall did not reveal future plans other than saying he will further his academic and football career at another program. He is the younger brother of former Georgia running back Keith Marshall.

Georgia Tech senior QB Justin Thomas went 6-for-10 for 164 yards passing and an interception in Saturday's 28-27 win over Georgia Tech.

This was the second-highest passing yardage total of the season for Thomas, who had only 10 rushing yards. The Yellow Jackets streak into bowl season riding a three-game winning streak, including wins over Virgina Tech and Georgia. Georgia Tech (8-4) will be a dangerous postseason opponent for whoever draws them.

Georgia Tech HC Paul Johnson insinuated that the media has been to blame for speculation about his job security.

"I don’t get it from the administration, from the fan base, from the alumni. I see where y’all write about it in the paper and hear it on the radio," Johnson said, adding, "I don’t worry about it. I wouldn’t be the first guy and won’t be the last." With their upset of Virginia Tech on Saturday, the Yellow Jackets achieved bowl eligibility for the eighth time in Johnson's nine seasons at the helm of Georgia Tech's ship. Johnson has all of three losing seasons during his 20-year career as a head coach. After Georgia Tech officially is slotted into their bowl in the coming weeks, that will have made it 18 postseason berths in 20 seasons for Johnson-led teams.
Nov 15 - 5:15 PM

Georgia Tech sophomore RB Marcus Marshall rushed for 143 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries in Saturday's 30-20 win over Virginia Tech.

Stellar job by Marshall to take advantage of his opportunity, here. He started in place of the suspended Dedrick Mills and came through in flashy fashion. The 5-foot-10, 212-pound sophomore averaged 7.5 YPC with a long run of 56 yards. That 56-yard rumble in the fourth quarter resulted in a touchdown -- Georgia Tech's final score of the game. Mills will remain out on suspension for next weekend's game against Virginia, too, so Marshall will have a chance for an encore in seven days.
Nov 12 - 6:53 PM

Georgia Tech freshman RB Marcus Marshall will start in place of the suspended Dedrick Mills in Saturday's game against Virginia Tech.

Mills is sitting out the next two games on suspension for an undisclosed indiscretion. That just spells opportunity for Marshall. While the 5-foot-10, 212-pound sophomore has rushed for just 299 yards and a touchdown this season while backing Mills, he has shown flashes in the past, most notably in two huge games last season, when he bulldozed Alcorn State with 184 yards and two touchdowns and later pulverized Pitt with 159 yards and a pair of scores.
Nov 10 - 1:06 PM

Georgia Tech freshman RB Dedrick Mills has been suspended for two games.

Mills just can't keep his head on straight. This is the second time he has been suspended during the 2016 season. The 5-foot-10, 217-pounder was also slapped on the wrist with a one-game suspension for a September 10 game against Mercer. No reason was given for that suspension. That could be said for this most recent two-gamer, too, as a team spokesman only cited a violation of team rules as cause for Miller's punishment. He will sit out contests against Virginia Tech and Virginia these next two weekends. "It’s never good to play without a starter. It is what it is. Move on, next man up," said HC Paul Johnson. Mills has rushed for 578 yards and 10 touchdowns in seven games this season. Marcus Marshall draws the Saturday start in Mill's place.
Nov 10 - 12:51 PM

Georgia Tech senior QB Justin Thomas accounted for 184 yards passing and a touchdown as well as 85 yards on the ground in Saturday's loss to UNC.

Much of Georgia Tech's passing success came on one play, the 83-yard touchdown pass to Clinton Lynch. Outside of that, it was more of the same from Georgia Tech's offense. That won't get it done against a team that can score like the Heels.
Nov 5 - 4:20 PM

Georgia Tech freshman RB Dedrick Mills passed the concussion protocol.

Mills suffered a concussion during the practice week leading up to last Saturday's game against Duke. He sat out that contest, a 38-35 win, while nursing the injury. While he has passed through the concussion protocol without reported issue, HC Paul Johnson indicated on Wednesday that the 5-foot-10, 217-pound freshman's playing status for this weekend's upcoming contest against North Carolina had not yet been determined.
Nov 3 - 3:13 PM

Georgia Tech issued indefinite suspensions to redshirt sophomore CB Jalen Johnson and redshirt freshman CB Christian Campbell.

Johnson was arrested for his involvement in an alleged physical confrontation with members of a fraternity on campus over the weekend. HC Paul Johnson initially said that no suspensions would be issued, but that notion apparently did not fly with the university. In something of a sideways connection, LSU OL Donavaughn Campbell -- brother of Christian Campbell -- was suspended by the Tigers for his own role in this apparent fracas.
Nov 3 - 12:55 PM

For the time being, Georgia Tech will not suspend redshirt sophomore CB Jalen Johnson (simple battery charge).

Johnson was arrested and charged with simple battery early Sunday morning. It is not known what incident precipitated this arrest. Yellow Jackets HC Paul Johnson (no relation) stepped to bat for the 6-foot-3, 210-pound redshirt sophomore on Monday, saying, "I think I would urge everybody to let all the facts come in and let the investigation unfold and then we’ll make an appropriate statement and an appropriate action." He added that he is "not sure this is going to be an issue when it all plays out."
Nov 1 - 3:48 PM

Georgia Tech redshirt sophomore CB Jalen Johnson was arrested on a charge of simple battery early Sunday morning.

No word as of yet as to the exact circumstance of Johnson's arrest. Per Fulton County jail records, the 6-foot-3, 210-pounder's bond was set at $5,000. Georgia Tech has declined comment on the matter for the time being. The redshirt sophomore has just five tackles on the season and has been used mostly in a special teams capacity.

Georgia Tech senior QB Justin Thomas accounted for 264 yards passing and two touchdowns in the air as well as 195 yards and two rushing scores in the school's 38-35 win over Duke.

Georgia Tech's top running back missed the game, but Thomas picked up the pieces. Perhaps Thomas' most impressive play was a 3rd & 17 conversion late in the game via a 50 yard run after exploding up the pocket. Duke is now 0-4 in conference play.
Oct 29 - 3:35 PM

Georgia Tech freshman RB Dedrick Mills will miss Saturday's game against Duke after suffering an upper body injury during practice.

Mills is the school's leading rusher, with 446 rushing yards on 95 carries and 10 total touchdowns. Last season's leading rusher, Marcus Marshall, will likely take over as the primary option in Georgia tech's offense. As of now, there are no details regarding what exactly Mills injured.
Oct 28 - 10:49 AM

Georgia Tech senior QB Justin Thomas completed 7-of-11 passes for 172 yards and a touchdown while rushing for 78 yards and two additional scores in Saturday's 35-24 win over Georgia Southern.

Thomas bolted for a 41-yard touchdown run with less than a minute gone by in the first quarter. He would go on to toss a 65-yard touchdown pass to Clinton Lynch later in the quarter. The 5-foot-11, 189-pound senior wouldn't account for another score until he notched a four-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter. This was a nice showing for Thomas on the whole, but through seven games, he has accounted for just seven touchdowns. There is no true fantasy intrigue here.
Oct 15 - 3:54 PM

Georgia Tech hired Oregon State AD Todd Stansbury to serve in the same capacity.

Stansbury is a Georgia Tech graduate and played linebacker for the Yellow Jackets during the 80's. He had served as Oregon State's athletic director over the past year. Prior to his stint with the Beavers, Stansbury served as AD for UCF from March of 2012 to June of 2015. "I believe that this is one of those rare golden moments in life where opportunity meets ambition," said Tech president Bud Peterson.
