Following the release of the ACC's football schedules yesterday, the AJC's Ken Sugiura has brought us three quick takeaways from Tech's slate of games for the 2015 season and what it means for the Jackets. While this is one of the more forgiving schedules in recent history in terms of when games will be player, it is notably harder in terms of opponents. Tech will play crossover games against Clemson and Florida State, the two contenders in the Atlantic, along with out-of-conference games against Georgia and Notre Dame, making for a fun but difficult 2015 season. The Jackets will also play two Thursday night games against Alcorn State (yay?) and Virginia Tech.
Former Georgia Tech guard Jarrett Jack, who currently plays for the Brooklyn Nets, has had a busy past year or so. Not only was he traded from Cleveland to Brooklyn in a cap-clearing move which would help the Cavs sign LeBron James, but he also finished up his degree at Georgia Tech, fulfilling a lifelong commitment which he made to himself years ago. Congratulations to Jarrett Jack for finding himself a home in the NBA and managing to juggle his academics at the same time.
If you like longform articles and have an interest in the inner workings of the recruitment process, then this post by Danielle Elliot is perfect for you. I really can't do the story any kind of justice in a one paragraph summary, but it is yet another great installment in the SB Nation series of longform posts.
If you are like me and already miss football (only about seven months left!), then you may want to take a quick look at some of the best plays of the 2014 season. This latest installment in the college football saga was a truly special one -- it featured the single-game rushing record being broken twice, a Hail Mary of the century, and plenty of fat man touchdowns along the way. Seriously, don't you watch football just to see offensive linemen catch passes? I do, and Paul Johnson doesn't indulge us nearly enough in that regard. Maybe Shamire Devine has earned a few snaps at running back?
What do you think about the 2015 schedule for Georgia Tech?
Have a great weekend!
