Georgia Tech needs team vote on reform
By Heather Dinich
Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson said Monday that the players who wore wristbands with the letters APU -- for All Players United -- last week should have first given their teammates a chance to vote on the idea to support NCAA reform.
According to the Associated Press, Johnson said coaches and most players had no idea quarterback Vad Lee, linebacker Jeremiah Attaochu and a few other players were wearing the letters APU -- for All Players United -- on wristbands in Saturday's 28-20 victory over North Carolina. Johnson says he first learned of the message after the game.
According to the report, senior defensive tackle Euclid Cummings said he doesn't expect the team to wear the letters on Thursday night against Virginia Tech.
