Technical Tidbits 5/25: Getting the Video Treatment

Basketball is 5 months away but it’s never too early to get hyped

NCAA Basketball: ACC Conference Tournament-Boston College vs Georgia Tech

It’s video season, everybody. As the athletic calendar continues to wind down, even the fall sports’ new seasons are but a speck on the distant horizon - and winter/spring sports aren’t even that. But basketball is getting the hype train started early: the first episode of a bi-weekly series called Relentless drops later today, covering Josh Pastner and the Hoop Jackets’ summer practice and player development program. The series is set to continue “through the fall”, which is good, because once July hits we’ll all be dying for that sweet, sweet content. Also in the link above: Cremins Court getting a makeover, now in Tech Gold and with a bigger logo.

Bigger logos are proven to improve on-court performance by at least 15%. It’s just science.

Y’all like talking about APR, right? APR scores for all sports were released just recently, at the end of May, which to me shows the people in charge of such things really know what they’re doing. Of note Georgia Tech-wise: women’s cross country, men’s tennis, volleyball and golf all earned perfect 1,000 scores; football is doing just fine with a 980; and men’s basketball is riding the relative caboose with a 961. If you need a refresher on how APR is calculated, I’d suggest Googling it, because my eyes glaze over every time I try to read up on it.

Countdown to the end of the Russell Athletic contract: 37 days.
