Report: Georgia Tech enters into agreement with City of Atlanta to move to Georgia Dome

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 the Falcons have vacated the buliding….

You can’t blame Mark Richt for Georgia’s discipline troubles. Ok, yes you can.

It’s become as regular as the swallows returning to Capistrano, or the Atlanta Braves bowing out of the playoffs early on….come spring, at least one (usually several) Georgia football players will do something stupid and get arrested and/or dismissed from the team.

Head starts in the Fulmer Cup standings are what the Bulldogs are becoming known for, and it’s starting to move from a running joke to an actual concern (for the record, I was concerned years ago).

This year’s subplot of four players–safety Tray Matthews, wide receiver Uriah LeMay and defensive linemen Jonathan Taylor and James DeLoac–being arrested on misdimeanor counts of…

March Madness 2014: Georgia Tech survives first round of ACC Tourney in OT

GREENSBORO, N.C. – For a while it looked like Georgia Tech was going to actually have an easy first round win against the Boston College Eagles in the first round of the 2014 ACC Tournament. But the Eagles weren’t going quietly into that good night, and pushed the Jackets to overtime, before falling 73-70.

The game wasn’t a smooth ride for either team though. It had everything from clock issues on the court, questionable calls and no-calls (ok…beyond questionable, how about ridiculous)

Atlanta Braves chairman claims team in ‘winning mode’, not rebuilding

Atlanta Braves chairman and CEO Terry McGuirk wanted to assure fans (and anyone else questioning) that the Braves are not in a panic mode, but rather are going  about business as usual.

NFL Rumors: Atlanta Falcons interested in Champ Bailey

Once the Denver Broncos released seven-time All-Pro cornerback Champ Bailey, it wasn’t going to be long before he was tied to just about every team in the league. But Bleacher Report’s Adam Lefkoe is reporting that the Atlanta Falcons are a team seriously in the hunt for the former Georgia Bulldog standout.
