Here’s another video featuring highlights from the Yellow Jackets’ volleyball team’s big win over Notre Dame. Considering the video archives series, are there particular Tech games that stand out in your memory and if so which sport? What particular game?

This was a fun article that looks closer at the recruiting situation and how it has been affected by the coronavirus pandemic. As the article points out, according to Tech general manager Patrick Suddes the school has turned to technology to allow coaches and recruits to stay in touch.

Personally, I would just turn to any Rocky movie (particularly Rocky IV) for inspiration and ideas.
