Not surprised. The real story will be if this happens at GA Tech. My oldest is finishing his masters on campus in Atlanta. Tech started in person classes on Monday. Techies are all business.

Word on the street is that a number of lacrosse players tested positive. Not an issue with the football team.

Like it or not,it's just another step backward in the conferences decisions,teams decisions,and even individual players decisions on whether to opt out of fall football.
As much as I love college football,I'm beginning to think they should err on the side of caution and just shut it for this season.

exposure in the football program that they can't contain, they'll have to shut it down for up to two weeks.

Even if it doesn't happen with our team, could happen to an opponent.

Guessing we'll see several cancelled games.
