Bulldogs to start lite noseguard
Harris decided to hang up his cleats this week because "he wasn't having any fun," according to Tech coach Jack Bicknell. "Heck, I'm not having much fun either," Bicknell told Harris.
Bicknell has given Harris a few days off and believes that he will return to football. In Harris' absence this weekend, Tech will start 240-pound defensive end Ben McGilton at the nose against Idaho.
The defensive line is a tough place for a youngster to become physically and mentally ready to play as a freshman. Especially when you're going up against veteran BCS offensive linemen. Harris needs football and Tech needs him, so expect to see him back in uniform and playing a more subdued role in the near future.
