A tough loss on Saturday.

The last few weeks I’ve spoken of Georgia Tech Football’s lack of noon or 12:30 kickoffs to start the season. We are finally regressing to the mean, with the third announced yesterday. The Tech-Miami showdown will be broadcast on the ACCN at noon next Saturday. The other two early games so far this season have been on RSNs, so this will be a new viewing experience for Tech fans. I personally don’t mind noon games, it’s just that there have been so many of them in recent years.

If you would like to relive Tech’s loss from this past Saturday, these next two articles will be for you. The first article I’m discussing takes a broad look at Tech’s struggles against the Tarheels, with blame to be spread all around. Overall, it just wasn’t a good day for the Jackets, and they will look to recover this weekend against the Duke Blue Devils.

The second of the two articles looks at a problem that the Jackets have had all season, getting third down defensive stops. The DL is currently one of the more weak position groups on the roster, so that does not help at all. Look for the coaching staff to try and figure out something for the stretch run of ACC play, and let’s hope that it helps.

Georgia Tech Baseball had some fun last night, even as their Atlanta counterparts did not. The annual White-Gold series is always a great preview of the team for the upcoming season, and although there was not any television coverage of the game, according to fellow FTRS writer Big Jake (Grant), the teams looked “fine.” The series continues today and tomorrow, with both games starting at 3:15 p.m. in Russ Chandler Stadium.

I don’t know much about women’s college tennis, but I do know that the Georgia Tech team isn’t too bad. This schedule seems like it will set them up for success, with a run at the NCAA tournament possible.

This is cute. At least they’re trying.

Question of the Day: What do you think about the article that discusses georgia’s “engineering” program?
