As the article says, two Yellow Jackets were named ACC Players of the Week. Jordan Domineck had an outstanding performance that earned him recognition as the Atlantic Coast Conference’s Defensive Lineman of the Week. James Graham had what could easily be considered one of his best games of the season earning him the co-Rookie of the Week. Congratulations to both of them.

The swim team had a good showing in the Georgia Tech Invitational which ended on Sunday night. It was a particularly good night for two Yellow Jackets. In the 200 breast and the 200 fly, Caio Pumputis and Christian Ferraro, respectively, placed first. The next event on the schedule for the swim team is the U.S. Open Winter National that will take place on December 4th in Atlanta, Georgia at the Mcauley Aquatic Center.

This was an interesting read that provided some historical insight into the series between Georgia and Georgia Tech, or what’s more fondly known as Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate. The article points out that in all the meetings between these two rivals, never has an unranked Tech team defeated a ranked u[sic]GA team. Let’s hope that all changes after Saturday’s game. The Yellow Jackets are 29 point underdogs going into Saturday’s game.

Okay, I’m just including this article for the sake of the title itself. If I remember correctly, there were some option-esque plays that Tech ran against N.C. State last week. And I think the team still runs them fairly well. So, I wouldn’t totally rule it out for Saturday’s game.

While the Dwags won’t have to fear facing the triple-option this year, they do have to contend with Jordan Mason. Georgia’s head coach Kirby Smart had a lot of praise for the sophomore running back: “I just respect his running passion and his energy. I love watching him run, and he does it the right way,” said Smart. Let’s hope Mason and the rest of the Tech team have a good showing this Saturday. #GoJackets
