Clean old fashioned HATE continues tomorrow @ 7PM. The game will be televised live on CSS, if you won’t be able to make it there.

The opponent team is currently ranked No. 1 in certain polls. Their two only losses come at the hands of SEC opponent Alabama.

Before you attend Wednesday’s baseball game, come by the Georgia Tech Rose Bowl Field and catch a peek at Coach Paul Johnson’s second spring '09 practice.

Wednesday’s NAB practice report won’t be published until later that night due to this important commintment.

Georgia Tech is 3-1 against in-state opponents this season, with the lone loss at the hands of (16-4, 3-1) Georgia Southern in Statesboro.


Congratulations to Georgia Tech’s own Matt Skole, the ACC’s Baseball player of the week. His performance during the VPI series was spectacular; (10 for 15 .667) and three home runs (including a clutch homer in the top of the 9th during game one for the late lead).
