The Yellow Jackets are back in the #404 as they host UNC this Saturday for their fifth game of the season. UNC looked pretty good last week against Clemson. It could have been a fluke, but regardless, I wouldn’t bank on it being any easier for Tech than their other games. Thankfully, this game will be broadcast by the ACC Network. Last week’s game required some last minute scrambling before I was finally able to watch the game on Fubo.tv. Speaking of scrambling, hopefully the offensive line will be able to hold up long enough for Tech’s quarterbacks to establish the passing game. Kickoff is at 4PM on Saturday 5th at Bobby Dodd Stadium.

Very good point this article makes about James Graham. While he wasn’t perfect last week, he did show signs that he could be Tech’s best answer at the quarterback position this season. Of course, he may not get the start this Saturday against UNC. If he does, then it would probably be a sign that Patenaude and Collins feel comfortable enough with Graham as their starter going forward.

This is a nice article on Tech’s swimming and diving team. Last Saturday they participated in Swim Across America – Atlanta Open Water Swim at Lake Lanier. Their participation was part of the charitable event. In total they raised over $8K that will benefit the Aflac Cancer & Blood Disorders Center of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.

So apparently there were some adjustments to the men’s basketball schedule. The Yellow Jackets’ home opener will be on December 7th or 8th against Syracuse. The time is still to be determined. Part of the reason for the ACC’s flex dates is to avoid a conference team potentially having a basketball game on the same day as its football team competes for the ACC Conference Championship on December 7. Yeah, that’s one conflict I’d love for the Yellow Jackets football team to have, but I’m not going to be holding my breath as it doesn’t seem very likely to be happening this season.
