ATLANTA- Georgia Tech continued preparations for North Carolina on Tuesday as the Jackets had a full pads practice and worked on tempo offensively and defensively to prepare for the Tar Heels. Jackets' quarterback TaQuon Marshall said he was less than pleased with his performance in the win over Pitt.
"I think it was terrible. I didn't play well," Marshall said of his performance against Pitt. "I struggled holding onto the ball, with fundamentals, bad passes, I threw terribly and overall I wasn't happy with my performance. When I watched the film it was even worse. I'm trying to wash that away and get ready for Saturday."
Marshall said that he and the rest of the offensive players amped up their efforts on the practice field on Tuesday.
"We practiced harder and worked more. You are going to play how you practiced so you have to go out there with the mentality it is game day and practice real hard even when you are tired it makes you stay focused," he said.
The Jackets' signal caller said he is impressed by what he saw on film from North Carolina's defense so far.
"They have a lot of experience in the secondary and they can fly around. They have some big guys upfront and other than that they run the same thing they ran last year defensively," Marshall said.
QUOTE OF THE DAY: "I'm excited for the future and what all the puzzle pieces look like when they lock in and fit. I'm looking forward to the end of the season because I think we are going to do a lot better than we have so far," sophomore guard Parker Braun said.
