Surprisingly, there aren’t a lot of Hawks headlines out there (at least, I couldn’t find many). With that said, we’ve got some good stuff with the other two professional teams and some interesting recruiting/transfer stories for Georgia and Georgia Tech.


Jeff Schafer of Tomahawk Take writes about the Braves lack of activity during a day when almost every Major League club was getting something done. Schafer also got in touch with a fitness writer who breaks down some recovery and preventive procedures for pitchers. It’s pretty interesting. Scott Coleman of Talking Chop makes the case for the Atlanta Braves acquiring Jeff Samardzija–this has been advocated for a while now for the Talking Chop writers.

AJC Falcons beat writer D. Orlando Ledbetter says that Aaron Rodgers hasn’t been ruled out for the game against the Falcons ($). Tim Tucker of the AJC has a story on MyAJC ($) about the Falcons getting more land for their new stadium. I should really cough up the dough and subscribe for all this stuff. Dave Choate of The Falcoholic says we shouldn’t expect the Falcons to beat the Green Bay Packers… wait, did people actually think they would?

Chris Vivlamore has three keys to the Hawks 102-100 loss to the San Antonio Spurs.

As a sophomore in college, I think it’s still pretty cool when a prospect leads his high school team to a state championship–and that’s just what Georgia QB commit Jacob Parker did for his Stratford High (SC) team.

Yellow Jackets
Notre Dame cornerback Lo Wood is planning on transferring for his senior season and Georgia Tech is in a great position to land him, according to Ken Sugiura. Joey Weaver of From the Rumble Seat answers a few Georgia Tech questions in his weekly mailbag.
