Georgia Tech receivers dropping the ball
By Heather Dinich
TAMPA, Fla. -- For the second straight week, a Georgia Tech receiver dropped a key ball that could've prolonged a scoring drive. One week after Demaryius Thomas dropped a fourth-down ball against Georgia on the Jackets' final chance of the game, Roddy Jones just dropped a key pass here in the ACC championship game.
These guys don't get many opportunities to catch the ball, so when they do, they have to hang onto it. Usually, they do. I've been watching Thomas, and he's done a great job of blocking so far in this game. Instead of the chance at the touchdown, though, the Jackets had to settle for a career-long 48-yard field goal by Scott Blair, and trail, 7-3.
