As this article mentions, the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and the social distancing measures taken can be seen here by Tech’s decision to limit attendance at Bobby Dodd Stadium this football season to 20% of the stadium’s capacity. Numerically that means up to 11,000 can attend a football games, given the stadium capacity of 55,000. The Yellow Jackets will be playing six home games according to its revised 2020 schedule. It will be interesting to see what the turnout looks li

Experience both on and off the court seem to be working in Jose Alvarado’s favor. In this article, the rising senior talks about the upcoming 2020 basketball season, the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, and his thoughts on fans attendance among other topics. It will be interesting to see how things play out. It will certainly be interesting to see what kind of season Alvarado and the Yellow Jackets can have given all that has happened this year.

I’m not sure if Twitter can tell a story, but it certainly says a lot about the Yellow Jackets men’s basketball team and its workouts in this article. Several Twitter posts from the team’s Twitter handle or its coaches document some of the workouts the team has been conducting. This includes the precautionary measures taken to ensure player safety.

This is an older article, but I thought I’d share it. The article features former Georgia Tech football head coach George O’Leary who is among the 2020 inductees into the Georgia Tech Sports Hall of Fame. Here is the complete list:

  • George O’Leary (football)
  • Morgan Burnett (football)
  • Chesson Hadley (golf)
  • Amanda McDowell (tennis)
  • Deck McGuire (baseball)
  • Aileen Morales (softball)
  • Gail Nevo (swimming)

O’Leary is definitely one of the more memorable coaches from recent history and he certainly had his effect on Tech’s current head coach, Geoff Collins. Congratulations to O’Leary and all this year’s HOF inductees.
