Ken Sugiura covers Georgia Tech for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution and talked about "Clean Old Fashioned Hate" with Rick Kamla and Randy McMichael on The Midday Show Wednesday.

They immediately go into the Georgia Tech quarterback situation and if they will use rotating QBs or if Paul Johnson will go with TaQuon Marshall after the four-game winning streak. Sugiura thinks as long as they don’t struggle early, they will stick with just one QB versus the Georgia Bulldogs.

Sugiura mentioned Paul Johnson's ability to get the team from 1-3 to 7-4 and keeping the team on track despite all the negative social media chatter. Johnson deserves a lot of credit for that. 

The Jackets have success in Athens over the past few seasons, but Sugiura doesn’t think there is a trick play Tech is planning to try and make it three games in a row.

Finally, Sugiura knows how hard it is to play versus UGA, so he won't give a prediction, but says Georgia Tech has a "slight" chance.
