Even if both the ACC and SEC go to conference-only football schedules for the 2020 season, some regional cross-conference rivalries may still occur. That includes Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate, between Georgia Tech and u(sic)GA. The last time the two schools didn’t face off during the regular season was in 1924, so saving the game this year would keep a long streak alive. As I’ve said in the “Tidbits” many times in the past few months, these things are conditional. We have no idea if we’ll have college football in November, or at all.
As I mentioned above, everything surrounding college football comes with a big question mark. If college football does not end up happening, at least we’ll have preseason predictions and watch-lists to look at what could have been. According to Phil Steele, there is definitely some potential on the Georgia Tech squad this season. Seven Yellow Jackets made his preseason All-ACC teams. A name that should jump out on the list is LS Cade Long. The RS sophomore was named to Steele’s second team, and will play a key role in P Pressley Harvin III’s continued success. The rest of the list can be seen at the link above.
Jeanine Williams had an incredible career at Georgia Tech. She is a two-time ACC Champion, a three-time All-American, and a dedicated volunteer in the Tech and Atlanta community. All of that has made Williams the Yellow Jackets’ nominee for the NCAA Woman of the Year Award, given to “graduating female student-athletes who have exhausted their eligibility and distinguished themselves in academics, athletics, service and leadership throughout their collegiate careers.” Williams’ nomination will now be considered by the ACC, which will select two women from the conference for national award consideration. Congratulations, Jeanine!
Tyler Strafaci certainly had a lot to talk about on the most recent episode of “Tech Talks” with Wiley Ballard. The Davie, FL native won two prestigious amateur events (North & South and Palmetto) in the span of a week. Strafaci was able to discuss his recent victories, the premature end to the college golf season and resulting quarantine period, along with his future on the Flats. Keep it up, Tyler!
An interesting shirt from Geoff Collins, to say the least. Wear your mask so he never wears that shirt again!
Question of the Day: What do you think about Tyler Strafaci’s recent performances?
