Technical Tidbits 11/22: Georgia Tech Football Has a Good (or bad) Thursday Night

Either way, the first half was great.

NCAA Football: North Carolina State at Georgia Tech Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

Snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Oh yeah, they nearly did it. But in the end, this Tech team was better than that, and they knew it. What’s the significance of the 28-26 final score other than proving FTRS’s own Ben Tankersley can make some [Deep Purple] good predictions? Those two points will forever represent a key stop by the defense of a critical two-point conversion by the Wolfpack late in the game. And despite a second-half that fell short of the encouraging first-half showing, the Yellow Jackets closed the deal and got a victory that should help boost their confidence going into next week’s game against you know who. #THWG

Brentavious Glanton has seen a lot during his time at Georgia Tech, being there for the dreadful 2015 season and seeing the transition from the triple option to the spread up close, not to mention countless other things. Glanton has been able to set a good tone in the locker room, even in the midst of a bad season, and has worked hard to set the team up for future success. Finish strong, Brentavious!

Josh Pastner has had some pretty good recruiting classes, but has never gotten the stud recruit that he’s been looking for in his time at Tech. This article, by the (controversial) Mark Bradley, discusses how Pastner has not done too well as a recruiter, and uga’s success in recruiting in the short time Tom Crean has been with the team. Take what you want from the article, I found it interesting, and not the most positive outlook on Tech.

This looks like a tough invite for both the Georgia Tech Men’s and Women’s Swim and Dive teams. The Jackets will face multiple ranked opponents, the women will even play the number one team in the nation, over the three day meet. The entire event will be broadcast live on ACCNX, starting today at 10 a.m.

This is incredible, Ahmarean Brown is looking like a once in a generation receiver for the Jackets.
