Technical Tidbits 12/16: Tech Trolls UGA Over Recruiting Message

Busy weekend for Yellow Jackets’ athletics.

Oh, this article was just too much fun. Then again, reading about how Georgia Tech (its coaches and fans) totally owned u[sic]GA is always fun, even if it was off of the football field, as this was. After another season ending with a failed bid to make the college football playoffs, Kirby Smart must be feeling some pressure. And I’d imagine him and the rest of his coaching staff will do anything to get a leg up on the competition when it comes to recruiting. It’s not hard to imagine they have noticed what Tech has been doing on the recruiting front since head coach Geoff Collins’ arrival last year. For them to react with such a blatant attempt at hijacking Tech’s recruiting messaging seems far more sad than despicable. Then again, it’s probably best if I just leave it to the comment sections for further elaboration.

As the article points out, both Jasmine Carson and Lorela Cubaj put in stellar performances as the women’s basketball team pummeled ETSU 87-48 yesterday at McCamish Pavilion. The Yellow Jackets are now 8-1 and have a tough challenge ahead of them. They’ll face off against 11th ranked Texas A&M on December 20th and then Rice on the 21st. Good luck to them as they continue their season at the Coqui Classic in Puerto Rico.

The men’s basketball team didn’t have as good of a turnout. They lost 67-53 to the Kentucky Wildcats. They are now 4-4.

Several Yellow Jacket athletes graduated during the fall commencement that took place this past weekend. As the article points out, one of those graduates was Daryl Smith, a former Yellow Jacket who went on to the NFL. Congratulations to Smith and all the graduates.

Congratulations to the Yellow Jackets volleyball team on their win over TCU in the semifinals of the National Invitational Volleyball Championship. The win sends the Yellow Jackets to their first ever championship game of the NIVC. The championship game will take place on Tuesday, December 17 as Georgia Tech will face off against South Dakota at 8 p.m ET. #GoJackets
