Well, this article was a pretty interesting read. Georgia Tech football coach Geoff Collins laid out some of his objectives for the team during the offseason and, to summarize, they included gaining weight and learning from close-calls. I’m sure he specified to his players that they should gain 10-pounds of muscle. With the strength and training program run by strength-and-conditioning coach Lewis Caralla (and of course, a nearby Waffle House) this should be feasible. Regarding the tape of the close calls and key moments that were difference makers in Tech’s wins and losses, I like that idea. Of course, as the saying goes, close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades. But I can definitely see how these plays can be both educational and motivational.

In women’s basketball, Georgia Tech defeated Wisconsin 60-41 last night. It was a fairly impressive win as they seemed to be in control for most of the game and led pretty much throughout the entirety of the game. With the victory, the Yellow Jackets are now at 6-1 on the season.

Yesterday was the second day of the U.S. Open Championships at McCauley Aquatic Center. Yellow Jacket Caio Pumputis had a great showing to secure a place in the A final of the 200 IM. The third day gets started a little later today, with the prelims at 10:00 AM and the finals at 6:50 PM.

You hate to see it happen, but it does, especially this time of year. Trent Howard announced via Twitter last night that he would decommit from Georgia Tech. Good luck to him wherever he ends up.

The Yellow Jackets volleyball team hosts Alabama A&M at O’Keefe Gymnasium. The match will be their first round opener of the National Invitational Volleyball Championship. It’s set to start at 7:00 PM. Good luck to the volleyball team tonight as they begin their postseason. #GoJackets
