    exerpt from rumbleseat regarding yellowjackets in the game (link below exerpt)

    Without an official box score, it’s hard to determine the contributions of the six former Tech players that made the Legends roster, but nevertheless, we will persevere (but please do let me know if you find a box score).

    DL T.J. Barnes (Years at Tech: 2009-12): started at NT for the Legends. Had a lot of trouble getting pressure on Gilbert (along with the rest of his defensive line).

    C Freddie Burden (2013-16): started at center for the Legends. Had a rough game (along with the rest of his offensive line) handling a powerful Orlando pass rush.

    LB KeShun Freeman (2014-17): played DL for Tech, but has switched positions to LB while playing for the Legends. Did not start this game, but did have a pass tip at the line.

    DB Corey Griffin (2014-17): playing the same position he did for Tech for the Legends. Did not start this game.

    WR Justin Thomas (2013-16): converted to WR for his pro day and during his time on NFL practice squads. Did not start, but saw the field for the Legends in some packages and had a few catches towards the end of the game.

    OLB Brandon Watts (2010-13): playing the same position he did for Tech for the Legends. Started versus Orlando and contributed defensively — can’t say how much for sure without a box score, but considering the score, he may have had a rough time covering Orlando’s receivers.

    Atlanta Legends have a long way to go to be competitive but I'm intrigued by the new league.

    Wonder what everyone's opinion is on vacated wins. In the long run do they hurt a program that much? Now, the scholarship reductions are a major ouch to the program. Also wonder if the scholarship reduction creates enough "slack in the market" that we can pick up another blue chip recruit or two.

    I think scholarship reductions hurt the most during NCAA Probations.

    Vacating wins is nonsense. It is insulting to the opposition because the score will never change in the records and the result is still a loss. Either make them forfeit or leave the result as it stands, don't make some worthless, symbolic ruling that means nothing.

    Poor dwags - they just barely missed being the Pre-Season Poll National Champion. Always so close yet so far.
