Now this is the kind of Tech news you like to read. Considering what a disappointment this past weekend turned out to be after what happened Saturday, this is just the kind of headline Tech fans could use. On Sunday night, Georgia Tech’s women’s basketball team defeated the University of Georgia 73-40. It was their first victory in Athens in the history of the women’s basketball program. What a great story to cap off the weekend. Congratulations to the women’s basketball team! #GoJackets

In more great news coming out of the Flats this Sunday, the volleyball team swept the North Carolina State Wolfpack. It was their eight ACC shutout of the season. Congratulations to the volleyball team! #TogetherWeSwarm

Sure, nobody wants to linger too long on a loss; after the kind of loss the Yellow Jackets suffered on Saturday, one would wish for amnesia. So, I’m limiting today’s Tidbits to just one article on football. At this point, Tech can play for pride, if that. There were some interesting comments from head coach Geoff Collins in this article, but this one, I found interesting: “I thought it was the first game that the level of attrition caught up to us.” Did it really have to catch up? I think it had quite the head-start if you ask me. I mentioned it in the post-game wrap up, and I’ll say it here again. One word summarizes this game: Regression. If what we saw Saturday night is where this team is at this stage of the season, then another word comes to mind: Worrisome. Let’s hope that’s not the case.

Okay, let’s see if I can get the wording right this time. This past Friday, Jordan Meka signed a letter of intent with the Yellow Jackets. By signing, the 6’9” forward and four-star recruit became the third member of the 2020 recruiting class. Welcome to the Flats!
