Not good for any spring football fans.

The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted millions of lives across the globe and cancelled many events as people practice social distancing to stop the spread of the virus. Worldwide cancellations have extended to the Georgia Tech spring game, where this year Head Coach Geoff Collins was planning to put microphones on players and coaches and allow fans to ask questions in-game, among other exciting features. Unfortunately, this won’t be happening. However, if you would like to see last year’s spring game, it will be streamed on the football team’s Facebook page tonight at 7:30.

The letter featured above is from Georgia Tech Athletic Director Todd Stansbury and addresses many questions that fans have had in recent weeks about Georgia Tech athletics and the Coronavirus. The questions (and answers) address a wide variety of topics, from the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the GTAA, to Tech’s game vs. Notre Dame at Mercedes-Benz Stadium falling on the same weekend as the rescheduled Masters. This was a very informative letter, and I’m sure all Tech fans will want to give it a read.

Sports Illustrated’s “All Yellow Jackets” website has transitioned to the defensive players that made their Tech All-Quarter Century team. This article takes a look at the defensive line, which includes household names such as Derrick Morgan and Joe Anoaʻi (now more commonly known as Roman Reigns). These players, along with many others, did an incredible job of stopping runs and getting to the quarterback during their time on the Flats. This is a much deserved accomplishment.

Although the article above is older, it still speaks to the positivity that Georgia Tech Women’s Basketball coach Nell Fortner brings to the program. Fortner’s energy and positive spirit has been a benefit to the team, as they had one of their best seasons in years before COVID-19 stopped everything in its tracks. While a NCAA Tournament berth was likely out of reach this year for the Jackets, next year’s projected team has the talent to make it to their first “Big Dance” since 2014. Keep it up, Nell!

This is a great way to pass the time during the quarantine period. You can vote on the different matchups via the official Twitter page of the GTAA. My money is on the 1917 Football team winning it all.

Question of the Day: What do you think the greatest team in Georgia Tech history is?
