Technical Tidbits 9/30: Temple Topples Tech

Yellow Jackets fall to 1-3 on the season.

With Saturday’s loss to Temple, the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets fell to 1-3 on the season after a definitive win by the Owls. And with the Atlanta Falcons’ loss on Sunday, it’s proving to be not so great a time to be a fan of football in the #404. I’m realizing now that 404 could actually be code for “Win Not Found”. If these two teams could collectively win six games on the season, I’d be happy with those results. Actually, I’ll trade them all in for Tech to win just one, and we all know which one that is.

It’s going to be a while, huh? Well no [Steppenwolf] Sherlock. It shouldn’t have taken the Temple game to convince one of that; but if one had any doubts, then it surely doesn’t take much more than a game where your defense delivers your team’s only points to convince one that, well, the offense just isn’t quite kosher yet. With all that being said, there are a couple of positive points I did notice from the game. Despite its mostly less than satisfactory play, the offensive line did on more than one occasion hold the line long enough that Tobias Oliver, was able to display some semblance of comfort in whatever pocket existed (as momentarily as it did). That’s something right? James Graham showed some promise, despite some of his less than accurate passes. And, as the article pointed out, the defense was pretty good on Saturday. There is that, I guess. Let’s see what happens next week against UNC, whom, by the way, had an impressive turnout against Clemson. Which begs me to ask, is UNC that good or are the Tigers just that overrated?

Let’s focus on some brighter news, shall we, uh, not football related. The Yellow Jackets’ men’s tennis team had a good showing at the Southern Intercollegiate Championships. Marcus McDaniel was the winner in the silver singles draw and Pablo Schelcher was the winner in the white singles draw. Congratulations to them and the men’s tennis team! #GoJackets

The Citadel couldn’t resist the opportunity to rub it in as they were passing through #404 territory again. This time on Twitter:

Okay, I think it’s time to wrap this one up before I start helplessly crying.
