I can’t blame you if you’ve forgotten Georgia Tech is holding its spring game tonight. It’s not as if there’s been
a huge amount decent level any promotion of the event.
In fact, I’m not sure Tech really cares at all.
Georgia Tech has broadcast its past four spring games online, but will not do so this year. The reason is that the athletic department has committed to using its in-house production capabilities to an online broadcast of the softball team’s home game against North Carolina, which also is being played Friday evening.
An online broadcast of a home softball game trumping your football team’s spring game sends quite the message to recruits, don’t it? Not that the genius is all that concerned.
At the least, coach Paul Johnson wasn’t protesting the decision.
“There’s no advantage into giving your opponents the spring game,” he said Wednesday after the team’s 14th practice of the spring. “I just don’t know what you’d gain from that.”
When the Jackets go 12-0 this season, remember where it started.
