Georgia Tech in the News
Tech student charged with supporting terror group
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that a 21-year-old Georgia Tech student taken into federal custody last month has been charged with giving "material support" to a terrorist organization.
plez sez: From the article, it appears that this young man has been on the federal government's radar for quite some time (at least a year before his arrest). It looks like the "war on terror" has finally yielded a real win.
Crittenton arrival forces Fredrick's departure
It appears that with the arrival of top basketball recruit Javoris Crittenton, Zam Fredrick has decided to transfer to another school.
plez sez: These kids should be going to college for an education and a quality education is one thing that Georgia Tech offers. I am sure that Zam Fredrick is a talented young man and wants to play basketball, but he should also weigh the importance of playing college basketball while receiving a quality degree against his prospects of being able to earn a living of playing professional basketball. I've seen him play... he needs to concentrate on his degree!
Why news from Georgia Tech? I received my degree in electrical engineering from there and I've had football season ticket for over 15 years!
