Sadly, Georgia Tech defensive lineman Brad Morgan will no longer be able to play for the Yellow Jackets football team. Morgan announced he would have to retire due to a back injury. Initially, Morgan played as an offensive guard before moving over to defense.

I guess that’s football for you. While it’s a beautiful game, it can be a brutal one, and it can take its toll on even the toughest player’s body. Interestingly, there will still be two other Morgans on the roster. Morgan’s twin brother Scott is an offensive lineman, and his younger brother Matthew is a redshirt freshman O-lineman. He has indicated he’ll still be around the team during his graduate studies. Good luck to him in his future endeavors

If you’re still considering season tickets, perhaps the Stinger Mobile Pass would be a good option. While the tickets don’t ensure you the same spot in the stadium, you do get guaranteed seats. There’s the gold mobile pass for $249 and the standard version for $149. The gold mobile pass gets you guaranteed seats in the lower level of Bobby Dodd. For seven games, that’s not a bad deal at all. I’m curious where are you favorite seats in Bobby Dodd Stadium? Some of my best memories are from the student section from when I attended Tech.

Georgia Tech’s young volleyball team keeps getting younger. Julia Bergmann, who just turned 19, recently joined the team. She’s already got quite an impressive resume having been a part of the Brazilian National Team and has played in the Pan American Games. Welcome to The Flats!

Who’s ready for some ACC Football on the ACC Network?

The 1917 Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets National Championship team was ranked among the top 50 teams of all time. Interestingly, that’s the only appearance for Tech, which has four official national championships. Do you feel the 1990 team was snubbed? If so, where do you think they belong in the top 50? Or how about one of Tech’s other national championship teams?
