Uh Oh

Georgia Tech seems to play worst when the opposing team has players suspended for one reason or another. It happened against Fresno State in a bowl a few years ago. It happened against UVA last season. Well, looks like VaTech has had a couple of key players suspended for this weekend's game. Good and not good at the same time. VaTech already has a tight game against Cincy to motivate them for this weekend, as if a key conference match-up wasn't enough. Now this.

Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer has suspended starters Chris Ellis, a Bethel High graduate, and Josh Morgan for Saturday's game against Georgia Tech due to a violation of team policy, according to a release from the school's sports information department.

Ellis is one of Tech's starting defensive ends and has 12 tackles this season, including a sack. Morgan, a native of Washington, D.C., starts at wide receiver and has 10 catches for 161 yards and two touchdowns this season. He also has blocked two punts.

Underground rumors are some type of altercation at a bar. Stay tuned.
