Well, I’m sure Todd Stansbury and Geoff Collins are disappointed as are many of the fans. To lose Clean, Old-Fashioned, Hate this year due to the SEC decision to play a conference only schedule is just one further repercussion of the pandemic. As the article points out, it will be the first time Tech and [u]GA haven’t played each other since 1924. Whoever Tech ends up playing for their non-conference game, Collins’ statement summarizes the right attitude: “All we need to know is where and when, and we will be ready to Put the Ball Down and compete.”
As the article points out, Nathan Cottrell and Tyler Davis may have come from different backgrounds and places, but they certainly do have a lot in common. They are both graduates of Georgia Tech and veterans of its football team. The former Yellow Jackets now have a shot at an NFL career. As if that were not enough, they were both signed by the same team. They now both look to extend their football careers in the professional realm with the Jacksonville Jaguars. Definitely one of the cooler stories to come out of this year’s draft — at least for Yellow Jacket fans.
[Grateful Dead] COVID-19, you did it again. Now it seems that the Notre Dame vs. Georgia Tech football game that was intended to be played at Mercedes-Benz Stadium will be moved to Bobby Dodd Stadium. It was definitely a game that would have had a wonderful draw (under normal conditions) and would have been great to watch in MBS. But, understandably, the decision had to be made given that there may not even be many fans in the stadium. It’s definitely disappointing, but on the bright side, one more game at Bobby Dodd, which honestly, I’m looking forward to seeing since the upgrades during the offseason.
This article is a good read if you want to catch up on some of your former Yellow Jacket basketball stars who are now in the NBA. Derrick Favors of the New Orleans Pelicans, former NBA player Will Bynum, and Josh Okogie of the Minnesota Timberwolves are some of the names brought up.
