ATLANTA (AP) -- Georgia Tech coach Paul Johnson says his team
still has a long way to go before it's ready for its first game,
which is only a week away.

The Yellow Jackets held their final preseason scrimmage today
and Johnson tried to duplicate a game-day routine. The coach says
players did everything from pregame stretching to walking off the
field at halftime, but failed to properly execute the plays.

Johnson says he hopes to have sophomore Josh Nesbitt and
freshman Jaybo Shaw ready at quarterback. Nesbitt, the projected
starter, returned on Monday after missing most of last week with a
shoulder injury.

Nesbitt, from Greensboro, played in 11 games as a freshman last
year. He had 53 carries for 339 yards and attempted only 13 passes
while playing behind Taylor Bennett, who transferred to Louisiana
