It’s hard to believe it, but just two weeks separate us from the start of the 2019 NCAA Football Season. Leading up to the season opener, the Yellow Jackets’ practices seem to be going well. The coaches had high praise for both the defense and offense. In 14 days, we’ll get to see this Tech team in action.

Single game tickets for the 2019 volleyball season went on sale yesterday. The season opener is on Augusta 30th. Season tickets are also available, and there is an option for Stinger Seats.

Senior Andy Ogletree continues to play well in the 119th U.S. Amatuer in Pinehurst, N.C. Ogletree’s defeat of Chandler Phillips means he will advance to the round of 32. Ogletree was Tech’s top golfer at the end of the 2019 season. Today will be the round of 32 and 16 matches, and the tournament will continue through the weekend with the 36-hole championship match being played on Sunday. Good luck to Ogletree as he continues in the tournament.

In more GT golf news, former Yellow Jacket golfer Matt Kuchar advanced in the FedEx Cup playoffs. Of three former Yellow Jacket golfers competing for the FedEx Cup, Kuchar is the only one to advance. Also, former Yellow Jacket Vincent Whaley recently earned a PGA Tour card. That made him the latest former GT golfer to do so. Congratulations to him.

By now we all know about Derrik Allen’s decision to return to his home state of Georgia to play for Tech. It seems his waiver status is still up in the air, so it’s hard to say if we’ll see him in action this season.

I included this article because of one very cool statistic that I wasn’t aware of: “Only three teams have beaten the Tigers 4+ times since Dabo Swinney arrived at Clemson 10 year ago”.

And yes, your Yellow Jackets are one of them. Who’s ready for number five? Speaking of Dabo, in your opinion, is he college football’s real evil villain?
