We all know what happened on Saturday. There’s no need to reflect on the negatives, and there were many. Rather, considering there were some positives from the game, I thought it would be best to give them some attention too. With that, let’s get into this bye-week with the first article of Monday’s Tidbits.

As the article points out, there are three Yellow Jackets who put in noteworthy performances. Jordan Mason is looking to be Tech’s star running back and has been delivering; particularly in the last two games. David Curry had a great game with 14 tackles and one interception. I expect he’ll continue to perform well. And Jalen Camp had two key receptions. (BTW, I really don’t need to mention it, but Pressley Harvin III, as always, played outstanding as well). These are all great foundations for the team to build on. With a bye-week, let’s hope the team can look into fixing some of the negatives, and, of course, continue to accentuate the positives.

After a big win on Friday, Tech’s volleyball team suffered two disappointing losses on Saturday to Arizona State and Oklahoma, respectively. They were participating in the OU Nike Invitational. I guess in all, it just wasn’t a very good weekend for GT athletics. The volleyball team looks to bounce back as they travel to Athens, Georgia on Thursday where they will face off against Arkansas and u(sic)ga.

Georgia Tech’s men’s basketball ACC schedule has been released. And it doesn’t look easy at all. The Yellow Jackets will kick off their schedule on November 5, with a road match against North Carolina State. A good portion of Tech’s games will be on the ACC Network. It’s hard to believe basketball season is less than a couple months away.

This is definitely a positive worth mentioning. Tech has had some bad luck with injuries the last two weeks. But one thing they haven’t had trouble with is cramping. A lot of this is due to the team’s nutritionist and having an effective plan for keeping the players hydrated and fueled.
