After just six months of being open for business here at Yellow Jacked up, we’ve already developed a great following. As we continue to evolve and come up with new ideas, we always like listening to our readers and Tech fans about what they want to see.
One repeated request was for a little more levity and humor to break things up from the day-to-day reporting of all things athletic at Georgia Tech.
You spoke – we listened!
We are going to try a new weekly feature called “Georgia Tech Sunday Tweets”, where we will filter through Twitter and find out what both friends and enemies have to say about the Jackets, and maybe even expose a good tweet-war or two.
So here is our first edition. Hope you enjoy!

Unfortunately, ESPN’s Keri Potts got caught up in sub-tweet hell on that one after simply inquiring to Michael about the weather report. Guess she learned that it’s always stormy when those puppies start yapping.
But it wasn’t just puppies that were barking about the Georgia Tech spring game, other media outlets and blogs had to throw in their two cents worth of garbage.

Of course, there’s always some sort of faux celebrity account that has to chime in. It’s amazing what people will say when they hide behind anonymity.
CBS Sports picked up on a cool promotion that the Georgia Tech athletic department put together for the Baseball team.
And while we’re talking about good press for the Jackets, how about the ink Jeremiah Attaochu got from the Atlanta Falcons.
Let’s finish with one more good one -
Feel free to send a little tweet to any of these good folks — good or bad — to let them know what Yellow Jacket pride is all about.
