Midweek glance



What's next: The Yellow Jackets (7-4, 4-3 ACC) play at Florida State (6-4, 5-2) on Saturday (3:30 p.m., ESPN).

What's new: Georgia Tech coach George O'Leary said Tuesday that his team's biggest problem is its inability to control the line of scrimmage on either side of the ball. Georgia's offensive line paved the way for 207 rushing yards from Verron Haynes, and its defensive line applied consistent pressure on quarterback George Godsey.

Pressing question: Can the Yellow Jackets become hungry? O'Leary said it's "one thing to be hungry and another thing to be starving" before adding that his team has starved through most of the season. O'Leary said a hungry team plays with less desperation than a hungry one.

Notable: Georgia Tech's past two games against Florida State, both losses, have been decided by a total of 11 points.

Quotable: "We just need more excitement and stuff. I try to create it every way I can." - O'Leary
