This was a pretty in-depth article on how the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets football team is taking all the precautions necessary to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. I like this particular quote from head coach Geoff Collins: “It’s fun, but it’s serious,” as it should be right? In all seriousness though, athletics departments and sports teams in general have to be one of the groups the most heavily impacted by all the measures taken to prevent the spread of the virus — whether it’s social distancing or the wearing of a face mask. It makes sense. And it’s good to see some semblance of life returning to normal, even the life that includes the sports we’re all so fond of.

This is great news regarding Georgia Tech basketball transfer Kyle Sturdivant. He’s a 6’3” guard who transferred to Tech from USC (Trojans). Sturdivant is a local who played in the Norcross area — Norcross High School to be exact. It’s definitely great news for him and the Tech basketball team that he won’t be forced to sit out a year. It’s nice when the NCAA gets these kind of decisions right, isn’t it?

Here’s a good one to relive. The 1985 ACC Champion Yellow Jackets. It’s impressive looking at that schedule — the Yellow Jackets defeated both UNC and Duke as they were en route to win the ACC Championship.

And in women’s basketball highlights, here’s an article that features video highlights from some of the Yellow Jackets impressive wins last season. Of course this includes their impressive sweep of Florida State. Good stuff.

This was an interesting article. Before there was Collins, there was Goodloe. Recruiting is often key to successful programs, and Goodloe was Bobby Dodd’s primary recruiter as the article points out.
