Tech will play UTEP in Legends Classic

Georgia Tech will play UTEP in the championship round of the Legends Classic men’s basketball tournament in Atlantic City on Nov. 26. Michigan will play Syracuse in the next game at 8 p.m.

The game will start at 5:30 p.m. and will be on HDNet. Additional television coverage will be announced at a later date. The winners will play at 8 p.m. Nov. 27. The consolation game is at 5:30 p.m.

 UTEP went 26-7 overall, 15-1 in Conference USA last season.

Georgia Tech, which went 23-13 last season and reached the second round of the NCAA tournament, will open the Legends Classic by hosting Albany on Nov. 17 and Niagara on Nov. 19.

It’s called a championship round because it’s the last series in the event. Odd, I know.

Huh? How do we have a championship round opponent before even playing the opening round games? I’m confused.

If GT loses to Albany or Niagara do they still go to the “championship round” in AC?

If UGA plays the Clark County Sheriff’s Department would that technically be classified as “The Longest Yard III?”

If I pick up a call girl and cannot hide her panties under the seat before I am busted by the vice squad, could I technically be UGA’s Athletic Director?

If I were accepted to the “# 1 Rated School for Drunks and Criminals” would I also technically get into UGA?

If I had irrational exuberance about my traditionally mediocre and underachieving football program could I technically be called a “Dawg Fan?”

…I think the “Who Cares Classic” name is already taken; it represents a bowl in Shreveport, you know, the one that the Dawgs were so proud of last year.

Interesting name “Legends Classic” – 3 out of the 4 schools slated for AC have won NCAA Div 1 B’ball championships.

Hewitt should do some gambling in Atlantic City. If he loses,he should be forced to renogiate his idiotic contract and stay up north. I heard that they are moving home games to they Heisman gym next year to save money on electricity since no one is getting suckered into buying tickets this year with Hewitt’s five guard, no pass offense.
