Well it’s rivalry week, and tomorrow is the 114th edition of Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate. There’s probably several of these preview articles out there and with them several opinions. What’s going to be the difference maker in your opinion? Georgia’s defense? Tech’s offense or special teams? Can the Yellow Jackets pull off some big, surprise plays? (Like the first one against N.C. State last week -- I believe they can). How awesome would it be if Tech were to, even momentarily, hold a lead? Something like that would likely put the fear of the football gods in the bullpups and their fans. Aside from straight out winning, what would you like to see happen in this game?

It’s always nice to welcome back a Tech legend. Such was the case for Geoff Collins and his coaching staff. On Tuesday, former Yellow Jackets head coach Bill Curry visited the flats and attended the football team’s practice. According to the article, it had been over 30 years since the last time Curry had been to Alexander Rose Bowl Field. It must have brought back some wonderful memories for him.

At times, college athletics can carry a lot more meaning and have a lot more impact off the field. On Saturday, the 19th-annual Michael Isenhour Toy Drive will begin. It’s sponsored by the Georgia Tech Student-Athlete Advisory Board (SAAB). Fans can donate toys or make monetary donations.

As this article points out, it’s been quite a while since the Yellow Jackets have been able to win against u[sic]GA at home. In fact its was 1999 and Geoff Collins himself was part of George O’Leary’s staff. For tomorrow’s game, it will be quite a challenge as there’s quite a disparity between the teams as Tech caps of the first year of its rebuild under Collins. They are currently four-touchdown underdogs. What do you think? Can the Yellow Jackets pull off a monumental upset? What are your predictions?
