Jameel Sewell to start vs. Georgia Tech

It appears that Jameel Sewell (ankle) will be the starting quarterback against Georgia Tech on Saturday. You tell me whether that is a good thing or not. Over on The Edge, there is speculation that Marc Verica will still see a lot of action.

Still no word on whether tailback Mikell Simpson will play, or whether he will miss his second straight game. Similarly, we're all waiting anxiously to find out if defensive end Matt Conrath will play this weekend after suffering an injury against Murr-land:

Early indications suggest that Conrath's ankle injury might sideline him. Conrath was omitted from the initial depth chart released to reporters this week, although freshman Will Hill was listed with the first team. Virginia will release its final injury report after Thursday's practice.

I'm afraid the defense can't withstand the loss of Conrath for long.
