GEORGIA TECH RUMORS & GOSSIP
ATLANTA -- Here are five things we gleaned from the Georgia Tech spring game on Friday -- the White team officially beat the Gold, 20-12 -- an event that was greatly hindered by a blustery mix of rain and biting-cold temperatures at Bobby Dodd Stadium.
How bad were the conditions? Head coach Paul Johnson, who has been running college programs since 1997 (Georgia Southern, Navy, Georgia...
The Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets signed the third member of their ’14 class on Thursday, as they received a national letter of intent from Abdoulaye Gueye of Central Park Christian (AL), via Dakar, Senegal. Gueye is a 6′-10″ big man, with a 6′-3″ wing span. Head coach Brian Gregory said the following about Gueye: We’re ...
Over the weekend, Georgia Tech added a guard in USF transfer Josh Heath. Heath, the son of former USF coach Stan Heath, has precedent on his side in terms of being immediately eligible.
In theory Heath would have to sit out the 2014-15 season per NCAA transfer rules, but the case of former Pitt guard Trey Zeigler raises the question of whether or not Georgia Tech should consider...
FSU faces Georgia Tech in Atlanta at 1pm to try to avoid being swept in the series.
In what seems like a last ditch move to find a new tenant for the Georgia Dome, unconfirmed reports are surfacing that the City of Atlanta and the Georgia World Congress Center Authority have entered into an agreement with Georgia Tech for the Yellow Jackets to move their football games to the Georgia Dome once […]
Georgia Tech officials have announced that the "T" stolen off the "Tech" sign on Tech Tower has been recovered. The "T" was returned by the student that had removed it. The student's name has not been released. Campus police are currently determining what. if any, charges should be filed. "Georgia Tech continues to be concerned about the...
Most university “traditions” are supported by the school – either officially or on the down low. But not the stealing of the “T” at Georgia Tech – at least, not anymore.
Tuesday, it was widely reported that someone (most likely a group of students) stole the “T” from the Lettie Pate Whitehead Evans Administration Building, also known as the Tech Tower. It’s the...
Jamal Golden will have the option to play two more seasons with Georgia Tech after the NCAA granted him a medical hardship waiver for the 2013 season.
Golden suffered a shoulder injury that required season-ending surgery after just three games of action in 2013. The speedy defensive back and return specialist now has two years of eligibility left with the Yellow Jackets.
Georgia Tech wide receiver Darren Waller will miss the first two games of the 2014 season due to a suspension.
The school announced the suspension on Friday, stating simply that Waller had committed "a violation of team rules." The two games Waller will miss are the Yellow Jacket's opener against Wofford as well as Tulane.
Waller played in all 12 games for the Yellow...
Georgia Tech coach MaChelle Joseph knew Maryland presented a major matchup problem in the paint.
It hardly helped that Kaela Davis, Tyaunna Marshall and other Yellow Jackets weren't patient enough in trying to win one-on-one matchups on offense.
''I'm sure it was with good intention that each player was trying to make a play,'' Joseph said. ''But...

Georgia Tech outrebounded No. 6 Maryland, launched 80 field-goal attempts and got 27 points from freshman Kaela Davis.
It wasn't enough.
Although the Yellow Jackets gave the Terrapins everything they could handle in a 92-81 defeat Sunday, coach MaChelle Joseph has been around too long to look for silver linings or moral victories.
She did, however, derive some satisfaction...
