Technical Tidbits 10/7: Tech Hosting Louisville For First Time

As it plays host to Louisville on Friday night, Tech hoping to avoid sloppy play.

NCAA Football: Georgia Tech at Syracuse Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

This article focuses on the unforced errors and self-inflicted wounds that the Yellow Jackets have been a victim of up to this point in the season. The Syracuse game was a prime example of this. 15 penalties for 104 yards is just unacceptable (it was the second most penalties committed by Tech in school history). Head coach Geoff Collins gets this and is hoping his team can clean up their play in Friday night’s home game against Louisville. The other issue has been turnovers. The Yellow Jackets are tied for last in all of FBS with a minus-2-per-game turnover margin, as the article states. I do agree with offensive coordinator David Patenaude’s assessment of quarterback Jeff Sims’ bad luck with deflected balls that ended up in defender’s hands. But an interception is an interception, and hopefully the team can avoid this in Friday night’s game. Along with the many other unforced errors that have plagued them. If they can do that, they may just have a chance.

As part of it’s precautions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and as expected, tailgating will be prohibited for Tech’s game against Louisville this Friday night. Fans are also to show up early to avoid a last minute rush at the gate.

They Yellow Jackets will be hosting the Louisville Cardinals on Friday and this article had some pretty interesting tidbits regarding the game:

  • It is the first time that the Yellow Jackets are hosting Louisville
  • This is the second meeting between the two programs
  • Tech head coach Geoff Collins and Louisville head coach Scott Satterfield actually coached together at Florida International, they were the defensive and offensive coordinators respectively

Kickoff for Friday’s game is at 7PM and the game will be televised on ESPN.

Congratulations are in order to former Tech golfer Stewart Cink and quarterback Joe Hamilton. On Tuesday it was announced that they will both be inducted into the Georgia Sports Hall of Fame. Congratulations!
