Technical Tidbits 12/19: Georgia Tech Football has a Good National Signing Day

Tech’s basketball team, not so much.

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

From the moment Geoff Collins was hired as Georgia Tech’s head football coach last year, recruiting great players (especially from the Atlanta area) was a key goal. So far, Collins has passed the test as a recruiter, pulling in the 247Sports 24th ranked class in the nation. 21 players signed, including four-star QB Jeff Sims, who flipped from Florida State. Although it was a great day for the football program, the highest-rated recruit that’s committed to Tech, RB Jahmyr Gibbs, did not sign and is waiting until February to do so. Collins will have to fend off schools like Florida and Alabama for Gibbs’ services, and I will be very happy if he can keep the blue bloods away.

Mark Bradley usually finds a way to show Georgia Tech in a negative light. In this article, although he did recap the bad losses of the season, he actually praised Georgia Tech. He gave credit to Geoff Collins and this year’s recruiting class. I was pleasantly surprised, and it shows just how important this first class has been for Tech.

This is pathetic and sad. Although Georgia Tech was missing its best player, G Jose Alvarado, there is absolutely no way they should lose by 18 to (Foreignering) Ball State. Unacceptable.

The Georgia Tech Women’s Basketball team has had a great season so far. They’ve only dropped one contest to a very good Rutgers team. A big part of that success has been a result of Lotta-Maj Lahtinen’s play. This article details her drive to win every day, and the effort she gives in all facets of the game. Lahtinen is only a sophomore, so it’s nice to be able to look forward to two more productive seasons from her on the Flats.

This is a good video to help get the bad taste of last night’s basketball game out of your mouth.

Question of the Day: Should Tech just discontinue their Men’s Basketball team?
