This is a powerful story from the AJC. Darren Waller won our hearts over with incredible performances during his years on the Flats, but was struggling without many knowing. Waller battled substance abuse for many years, before finally entering a treatment program after being suspended from the NFL for a second time. Waller beat his addiction during his time away from football, and is now one of the most talented pass-catchers in the NFL. Congratulations to Darren, keep up the good work.

I’m going to be honest, I don’t think they can. Even though Kentucky did lose to Evansville, the Jackets will be without one of their best players in Jose Alvarado, and put up a disappointing performance against Syracuse. Although, in this week’s mailbag I said that the Jackets would beat UNC, that definitely doesn’t apply to the Wildcats this weekend. If you would like to watch the game, tune in on ESPN at 5 p.m. Saturday.

Graduating from college is one of life’s biggest events, and 24 Tech student-athletes will be doing just that this weekend. Georgia Tech is a very difficult school, but when athletes have to practice for hours each week, it becomes almost impossible to manage everything. All graduates deserve a big round of applause for their accomplishments. Congratulations!

Although the Georgia Tech Volleyball team was disappointingly left out of the NCAA Tournament, they have been doing just fine in the NIVC. The Jackets dispatched the Flames of Liberty Tuesday in the quarterfinals, and will be hosting TCU on Saturday at 7 p.m for a spot in the Championship Game. If the Jackets win this, and win their finals match-up, that will be a nice response to the NCAA’s snub.

Here’s a fun Friday read, although it seems like the view is nice, I’m not sure I could be in the blimp for more than a few minutes.

Question of the Day: In the spirit of graduation, what is your favorite Tech story?
