In his first year playing center, Mikey Minihan is already making waves. The Hawaii native was named to the Rimington Trophy Watch List, which is given annually to the best center in college football. Georgia Tech’s offense last year was abysmal; however, through four games the team is already over halfway to its total yards gained in 2019. A main factor for these improved numbers is the play of the offensive line, with only two sacks allowed so far. Keep it up, Mikey!

When you have Olympic-caliber facilities, you should use them. That’s exactly what Georgia Tech is doing. It was announced yesterday that the McAuley Aquatic Center would be hosting the 2026 NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships, which will be its fourth hosting job since 2006. Also announced was that Georgia Tech would be hosting a 2025 NCAA men’s basketball regional at State Farm Arena. The Institute was slated to host the Final Four back in March, but we all know how that ended.

Virtual tickets are a new way for fans to “attend” games. Georgia Tech is approaching its limited football attendance situation in a creative manner, offering supporters the chance to get a commemorative ticket sheet and entries into drawings for some exciting prizes. I would want to win an opportunity to lead Bobby Dodd Stadium in the “Yellow Jackets” chant.

The Georgia Tech volleyball team is on a roll. They have won four games in a row, three of which have sweeps. Last night against Wake Forest, the team blew the Demon Deacons out. The three sets finished at: 25-14, 25-10, and 25-13. This is a huge win for the no. 9 ranked squad and should build confidence heading into the final three games of the season. You can catch tonight’s action from Winston-Salem at 4 p.m. ET on the ACC Network.

If I were a women’s basketball player I think I would commit to Georgia Tech just for the locker room.

Question of the Day: Are you going to buy any virtual tickets?
