This article really sheds a light on some of the crucial plays that defined Tech’s season this year. In all of the wins, and some of the losses, the game often came down to two or three important plays. There were missed field goals, interceptions, and fumbles on both sides. Although it wasn’t the most fun season to watch, I am really looking forward to what Geoff Collins and the rest of the football organization will be doing to improve for the future.
Nick Turner is a three-star safety from New Orleans, Louisiana. Turner had been committed to Tech since June, but announced yesterday that he was decommitting and reopening his recruitment. It’s always tough when this happens, but you can only wish the best for Nick and the rest of his family going forward. This is the second decommitment in the 2020 recruiting class for Georgia Tech, with the first being WDE Eddie Watkins in August.
Jose Alvarado has been the lifeblood of the Georgia Tech Basketball team for the past three years, but recently has had an injury issue. Alvarado battled through an injury in the georgia game a couple of weeks ago and has not seen the court since. The Jackets have struggled while he’s been gone, losing to Arkansas and almost getting upset by Bethune-Cookman. The point guard is expected to be out until the Kentucky game, and will be missing crucial contests against Nebraska and Syracuse. It will be interesting to see if the Jackets are able to come up with something that works, especially with these tough games looming.
FTRS’ own Jake Grant did a great job in his weekly Yellow Jacket Roundup discussing the Georgia Tech Volleyball team and their exclusion from the NCAA Tournament. This article looks at the methods of selection for teams in the NCAA Tournament, and discusses how a weak non-conference schedule might’ve done the Jackets in. Seven of their eleven non-con games were against teams ranked higher than 100 in RPI, so maybe the Jackets will look to bolster their future schedules with better teams, especially with only one starter graduating after this season.
Tech Volleyball did get some positive news after yesterday though, as Head Coach Michelle Collier was named the ACC Coach of the Year. In addition to that, Julia Bergmann was named ACC Freshman of the Year and sophomore Matti McKissock was awarded ACC Setter of the Year. Six Yellow Jackets were named to the ACC all-conference teams. Be sure to come out and support the Yellow Jackets at O’Keefe Gymnasium as they kickoff the NIVC against Alabama A&M Friday at 7 p.m.
