Technical Tidbits 11/27: Article Asks If COFH Matters Or Does It?

More digs against the Yellow Jackets in run-up to Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate.

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

Okay, so is this article focusing on Geoff Collins’ desire to put Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate back on the national stage or is it focusing on making random digs against Georgia Tech and its football program. Of course, every reader who would click on this article likely already knows that u[sic]GA is the powerhouse football program in the state, and they’d likely know that part of what Tech’s program is focused on with the hiring of Collins is returning to competitive form against the Dwags. However, those readers will also know, at least, if they are Tech fans, that part of what makes Tech unique is its commitment to also being a powerhouse in its academics. And part of that means recognizing the need (or lack thereof) for an $80 million dollar football building.

It was a disappointing loss for the Yellow Jackets’ men’s basketball team on Monday night. They lost to Arkansas 62-61 on a lucky 3-point shot in overtime. Tech’s next game will be a home game against the Bethune-Cookman Wildcats on Sunday, December 1. Tipoff will be at 6:00 PM. Good luck to the men’s basketball team as they aim to bounce back.

Back to Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate. Here’s some of the key information for Saturday’s big game. The game will be televised by ABC with kickoff set for 12:00 PM. It will be the 114th game of the series. It will be Senior Day at Georgia Tech. And yes, there are seniors on the active roster for the football team this year. Eight of them to be exact. #GoJackets

Interesting article on COFH. A good point the article makes is the impact a Tech victory would have on recruiting. In my opinion, it would take less than that. If Tech can have a strong showing against Georgia, and it shows signs of what its program could be in the future, that would be a strong message to recruits.

For a lot more from coach Geoff Collins, here is a link to his weekly press conference, which was held yesterday. Here’s my personal favorite quote from Collins: “Don’t worry about the results, just focus on the task at hand and constantly try to improve and constantly try to perform your best at all times regardless of what people say about you.”
