The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets may have imported their offense from the Navy Midshipmen, but they certainly didn't pick up any seafaring safety tips. Linebacker Daniel Drummond will be suspended for at least one game after pleading guilty to boating under the influence.

Coach Paul Johnson found out about the July arrest just this week. A one-game suspension would mean Tech's down a starting linebacker for their Labor Day opener against the Virginia Tech Hokies.

Rising junior Drummond had 44 tackles and a forced fumble in 11 games last year, his first involving significant playing time. He'll likely be spelled by Anthony Harrell or Tremayne McNair, according to the latest depth chart available.
