ATLANTA (AP) - Vad Lee has started every game at quarterback for Georgia Tech this season only to be pulled from the past two. He'll also start Saturday against Syracuse as coach Paul Johnson says he's not changing starters even though the Yellow Jackets have lost three in a row.

Johnson said Tuesday that Lee hasn't received enough help from teammates, and that he's suffering against the expectations of Georgia Tech fans who began raving about him nearly from the moment the sophomore was recruited from Raleigh, N.C.

The coach also said that Lee has been freelancing too much.

Johnson says "when you're not winning, then you start pressing and you try to make plays instead of playing within the system. That's experience."
