Technical Tidbits 10/31: Geoff Collins Gives the Media a Sweet Treat

Happy (hopefully not rainy) Halloween!

NCAA Football: South Florida at Georgia Tech Adam Hagy-USA TODAY Sports

Georgia Tech Football Head Coach Geoff Collins spoke about a lot of things in his weekly press conference Tuesday, and also gave the assembled media a special Halloween gift. Collins discussed the different players that made an impact against Miami, and discussed this week’s opponent, the Pittsburgh Panthers. He made note of Pitt’s defensive unit and their star WR, Maurice Ffrench. The candy was a very nice touch from Collins, and should lead to some positive coverage in the future.

Georgia Tech’s strength on offense is clearly the run. It helps when you have the highest-graded RB in college football at the moment, Jordan Mason. The Jackets have a plethora of other backs that can also perform at a high level, not to mention a mobile QB and a converted WR in Tobias Oliver that are all threats with the ball in their hands. This strength should definitely be in play much more as the offense gets more comfortable and receives even more in-game experience.

Although Tech has been hurt by injuries this season, a lot of reserve players on the team have stepped up. The players that are Above The Line know that they will be getting looks during the games, and because of that, there is increased effort being put into practice that is shown when it really matters. The constant competition and effort that the coaching staff loves to preach about is clearly benefiting everyone on the team, as it creates a sense of urgency to keep improving.

Jahmyr Gibbs is one of the best recruits that Georgia Tech has currently committed in their 2020 recruiting class. The Dalton, GA native has put up videogame-like numbers for his high school this year, and is drawing interest from major programs like Alabama and georgia. Although the two analysts in the article are pessimistic about Gibbs coming to Tech, even being in contention for a talent like this is something to be proud of for the new coaching staff.

Congratulations to the Georgia Tech Swimming and Diving teams on their money raised to fight cancer! This is a great figure, considering they only raised the money over two meets. If you would like to donate to the cause, there is a link at the bottom of the above article. Great job, Jackets!

It looks like another Jacket commitment is incoming. A special Halloween surprise.

Question of the Day: Who do you guys think that commit will be?
