1. I'll join the chorus of glowing reviews of Mercedes-Benz Stadium. This is really a nice place. I really like how much natural light is let in, not just on the view to downtown, but circling the stadium.
2. A-back Clinton Lynch will not play, out with an unspecified injury. Lynch was a terrific playmaker last year for the Yellow Jackets, and his absence will be a factor. Among other things, this likely means more playing time for A-back Nathan Cottrell, who would normally be the No. 4 A-back but will now be a part of the rotation of A-backs shuttling in plays from the sideline.
