After two off weeks in a row, Georgia Tech fans were looking forward to seeing the Yellow Jackets take the field against Miami this weekend. Unfortunately, that won’t be happening, as the Hurricanes are still having COVID-19 issues within their program. Their game against Virginia Tech last weekend was almost not played due to a shortage of players that were taken out by COVID-19. Tech’s trip to Miami will now likely take place on December 19, if Miami is not in the ACC Championship Game or the game does not have an outcome on who will be playing in the championship. Get well soon, Hurricanes!
Even though McCamish Pavilion will only be able to welcome around 1,200 fans for each home game, it’s better than nothing. The GTAA announced their attendance policy for basketball games, with 900 tickets going to students and 300 distributed to Tech student-athletes and athletic department employees, with no ticket access to the public. It will be interesting to see how many students turn up for games until the beginning of the year, as fall semester in-person classes are scheduled to end next Tuesday at Tech.
A few days ago, the Georgia Tech Men’s Basketball team had its tip times released for their non-conference schedule. Yesterday it was the women's turn, with all four non-con games getting their times and network assignments. Two of the Jackets’ games will be shown on the ACC Network (georgia and UCF) while the other two (Georgia State and Tulane) can be seen on ACCNX. Tech tips off the season at home against Georgia State (12 p.m., ACCNX) next Wednesday.
It’s safe to say that Andy Ogletree had one of the best weeks of his life last week at the Augusta National Golf Club. Besides playing with Tiger Woods for the first two rounds of the Masters, Ogletree was also the Low Amateur for the tournament, finishing T34. Ogletree was featured in Dustin Johnson’s Green Jacket presentation on CBS, and made a neat video diary chronicling his experience for Ramblinwreck.com. Give it a watch!

The ACC and its television partners have announced all football games scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 28 have been placed under a six-day hold.
Game times and networks will be updated following the games of Nov. 21.
Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait until next Monday to find out when Georgia Tech will be kicking off against Duke. Of course, that’s if the game even happens.
Question of the Day: Do you think the college football season will be finished?
