Georgia Tech Reveals Navy Alternate Jersey

About a month and a half after revealing the initial home and away jerseys for the 2018 season, Georgia Tech and adidas unvieled the first alternate jersey of the new partnership: a navy jersey paying homage to the 1990 National Championship team. The jersey, which will be worn Saturday against Clemson, is not an exact replica of the 1990 jersey, which featured white numerals trimmed in gold as opposed to the solid gold numerals on the adidas version. In fact, the new navy jersey is basically the same as the adidas home jersey, just navy instead of white. That said, I think it’s a pretty sharp look to break out every now and then. This will be the first time Georgia Tech has worn navy jerseys since 2015 against Virginia Tech.

Bowling Green Kickoff Time Set

After a 3:30 kickoff this week against Clemson, Georgia Tech will return to the familiar noon slot on September 29th when the Yellow Jackets face Bowling Green.

The game against the Falcons will be Tech’s fourth kickoff in the noon hour this season and the third to be televisied on the regional sports networks. I’m sure fans have had plenty of practice but you’ve got two weeks to get your breakfast and/or postgame tailgates ready. Grab some Sublime donuts for pregame, pack the cooler with ice to keep the post game beverages cold, and come cheer on the Yellow Jackets!

Vollyball Sweeps ACC Awards

Following a very successful weekend, Georgia Tech volleyballers took home ACC Player and Freshman of the Week awards. Freshman Mariana Brambilla took home her second ACC Freshman of the Week putting up double-doubles against both Georgia and Arkansas. Junior Kodie Comby had a huge all-around weekend, recording 19 kills and 14 blocks across the two matches. The Jackets have been pretty good in the nonconference slate and start ACC play this weekend at Syracuse and Boston College.

Jack Returns to NOLA

Finally, congrats to Tech Great Jarrett Jack who signed a one-year deal with the New Orleans Pelicans yesterday. The deal is not guaranteed, so Jack will need to fight for a roster spot. If he makes the team, it will be his 15th season in the NBA. Jack previously played for New Orleans in the 2010-11, 2011-12, and 2016-17 seasons. The 2011-12 season was arguably Jack’s best statistical season in the Association. He only played in 45 games but averaged 34 minutes while putting up 15.6 points and 6.3 assists per game.
