Clean-Old Fashioned Hate is back. As the article mentions, the Yellow Jackets men’s tennis team will be facing off against a couple of SEC opponents over the weekend. And their first match will be against u(sic)GA and takes place today in Athens. The 12th ranked bulldogs lead the series 69-28. Hopefully today the Yellow Jackets can improve on that statistic with a win. The next match will be against the University of South Carolina. That will be a home match and takes place on Sunday at the Ken Byers Tennis Complex. Good luck to the men’s tennis team!

Tech’s golf team got off to a good start in the Amer Ari Intercollegiate, however, they eventually fell to third place after Wednesday’s round, as the article points out. The leaders for the Yellow Jackets were Luka Karaulic and Christo Lamprecht who each shot a 74. This is a tournament that the Yellow Jackets have won on five occasions. The team is currently ranked 20th. Their next tournament will be the Wyoming Desert Intercollegiate which will start on February 19th.

There’s some new updates regarding some Pro Jackets and this article fills you in with all the details. One interesting highlight is the return of Iman Shumpert. He has joined the Brooklyn Nets whom he had last played with back in 2019, as the article points out. Shumpert won an NBA championship in 2016 with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Some other former Yellow Jackets mentioned in the updates included Thaddeus Young and Derrick Favors among others.

The Super Bowl is this weekend and former Yellow Jacket Harrison Butker will be adding to his own Super Bowl memories. It should be a good game — most likely it will be a high scoring affair. It’s hard to say though, both teams have fairly good defenses as well.
