Well, it was bound to happen eventually. Georgia Tech can now count itself as one of the many schools that has had a game postponed or cancelled due to COVID-19. Tech’s game against Pitt has been rescheduled to December 12, a date opened up by the ACC Championship game’s movement to December 19. The postponement comes as cases are rising within the United States, with the number of new cases per day hitting records. At this point, as cases increase and games get cancelled/moved, I’m not sure how much college football we have left this year.
Masters week...— Georgia Tech Golf (@GTGolf) November 12, 2020
Matt Kuchar and 1987 champion Larry Mize each with solid opening 70s (-2) today.
All three of Georgia Tech’s golfers in the field at the Masters this week were in Thursday’s morning wave, so even with a long rain delay, they were able to complete their rounds. Larry Mize and Matt Kuchar both had solid rounds, shooting -2, currently tied for 21st. Andy Ogletree got off to a slow start, but got his game together and finished the day +1, tied for 64th. Play resumes this morning at 7:30 E.T., with the second round beginning at around 9:35. You can check all of the action out on Masters.com.
Unlike the Georgia Tech men’s basketball team, the Tech women will have all of their non-conference games at home in Nell Fortner’s second season. The Jackets will only play four non-con games (the men get seven), including one against in-state rival u(sic)GA. This will be a great chance for Fortner to start a winning streak against the dwags, after beating them in Athens last year 73-40. Both of Tech’s basketball teams will open the season against Georgia State, on the same day, in just under two weeks. I can’t wait for the seasons (if there even is one)!
Tech Softball Coach Aileen Morales is quietly assembling a great team over at Mewborn Field. Morales has some great recruits this season, with the incoming class being ranked no. 17 in the nation by Extra Inning Softball. Four of the new freshmen were even included in Extra Inning’s top 100 player list. Welcome to the Flats!

Jordan Domineck has been incredible on Tech’s defensive line this season. If there are more games, look at him to keep generating pressure.
Question of the Day: What are your plans for Saturday night now that the game is postponed?
