A two-homer game from A.J. Murray was not enough to propel Tech to a win versus Kennesaw State on Tuesday as the Jackets fell by a final score of 11-6 on Tuesday night. In addition to extending Tech's current losing streak to four games, it also marked the team's first loss against a team from Georgia this season -- Tech was previously 5-0 in such games. This is quickly becoming a frustrating season for the Jackets, who currently stand at 24-16 with just three ACC series left to play. A sweep versus Clemson this weekend is an absolute must if this season is to be salvaged.
NFL schedules were released on Tuesday and one of the most notable games for Tech fans is Denver vs. Detroit in week three, a matchup between Georgia Tech greats Demaryius Thomas and Calvin Johnson. Not only is this a fantastic game regardless of who the receivers are, but the fact that Thomas and Johnson will be going at it makes it even more attractive to many people. It's a matchup that we don't get to see often and I'll certainly be watching to see which wideout gets the best of the other.
The life of a lesser-known high school quarterback can be more than a little bit hectic when it's time to choose a college, as is evidenced in this great article about 2016 quarterback David Moore. It would seem that Moore, who has moved around quite a bit during his high school career, has had an interesting journey leading up to his big announcement this afternoon -- the article is written in a way that makes it very easy to follow his entire process. I'd never thought about it before reading that article, but it does seem like QB is a hard position to get attention for when you are a relatively unknown recruit. There are so few slots to fill and so little playing time to go around that it's a tough thing to succeed at.
As a sports fan, you thought that the Jameis Winston crab legs scandal was over months ago. For the sake of your sanity, you prayed that it was over because you couldn't take another seafood joke. Yesterday, however, the clouds parted once again when Jim Harbaugh asked the infamous quarterback a question about the seafood debacle which left the media crabby once more. Winston now maintains that the seafood was a hookup, and I'm inclined to believe him just because I have a hard time believing that he's that stupid.
Are you as excited as I am for the Bay Bay vs. Megatron matchup? On a scale of Justin Bieber to the Beatles, how much did you miss the crab legs story gracing the headlines?
Have a great Thursday!
