"Georgia Tech coach Chan Gailey said Houston might play as early as Saturday, when the Yellow Jackets visit No. 3 Miami."
I'd say this statement sums it all up.
I'd be willing to bet Chan will have met with the coach from Miami, and said something similar to "We have a problem player. For our first defensive play, please have all your team hit this guy as hard as they can. Our guys will stand back and watch."
