Another week, another opponent blogger Q&A to help preview the upcoming game.
This week, I got to ask Tyler Duke from SBNation's Georgia Tech blog From the Rumble Seat a few questions. He was gracious enough to give us some insight into one of our Coastal Division foes. Tyler also asked me some questions, and those answers can be found here.
Thanks to Tyler for joining us this week. You can follow him on twitter @DukeSBN, and follow From the Rumble seat @FTRSBlog for more thoughts on the game.
SOTU: Georgia Tech enters this week's game at 4-0, including a hard fought 27-24 win at Virginia Tech 2 weeks ago. What's the general feeling around this team right now?
SOTU: Sophomore QB Justin Thomas is having a very good season to this point. What skills make him special, and which areas of his game could use improvement?
SOTU: Behind and next to Thomas are a cadre of capable and explosive RBs. Who leads this group, and who should Miami be worried about?
SOTU: The biggest challenge facing Miami this week is Paul Johnson's patented Triple Option offense. How does it work, and what makes it so challenging for other teams to defend?
SOTU: Over the years, you guys have had some OUTSTANDING Wide Receivers on your team, with Calvin Johnson and Demariyus Thomas leading that list. a) How does a team that runs triple option develop such great WRs and b) who on your roster is the next big thing at that position?
SOTU: Defensive Coordinator Ted Roof spoke after practice on Tuesday about having trouble simulating Miami's team speed. Is this a big concern for GT's defense, or is Roof trying to downplay the strength of his defensive unit?
SOTU: Your defense has been very active this year, creating 7 turnovers in 4 games, and 22 TFLs. What is the system of defense that you run, and who are some of the top players on that side of the ball?
SOTU: Miami has gotten the better of this matchup the last 5 years running. What will it take for the Yellow Jackets to get over the hump and defeat the Hurricanes?
SOTU: Last, but not least, how do you see the game playing out on Saturday and who will emerge victorious?
