Bobby Cremins's on-again, off-again decision to return to South Carolina is off - again. In a stunning reversal just three days after he resigned from Georgia Tech to coach basketball at his alma mater, Cremins announced Saturday morning that he was shunning the Gamecocks to return to Georgia Tech. "I made a mistake and this is the most embarrassing moment of my life," Cremins said in a statement. "The South Carolina welcome reception and press conference was beyond belief.

Scott Blair kicked a 36-yard field goal with 57 seconds remaining and No. 15 Georgia Tech defeated visiting Clemson, 30-27, after squandering a 24-point lead last night. Clemson (1-1, 0-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) scored 27 straight points, taking its first lead of the night on Richard Jackson's 53-yard field goal with 11:33 to go. But Georgia Tech, which did nothing offensively through most of the second and third quarters, finally came back to life. The Yellow Jackets (2-0, 1-0)

West Chester East offensive tackle Jesse Moody has had this dream since elementary school. He maintained it while he played football in junior high. He still had it through his three years as a varsity player at West Chester East. Now, after making an oral commitment recently to play football at Georgia Tech, the 6-foot-6, 300-pound Moody is one step closer to that goal. Moody wants to be an aerospace engineer. Football gave him a way to inch closer to that goal.

The team that is also known as the Ramblin' Wreck left Kansas and its legions of basketball fans in shambles yesterday in the NCAA St. Louis Regional final at the Edward Jones Dome. Georgia Tech, the Atlantic Coast Conference team coached by former Villanova assistant Paul Hewitt, answered every challenge the tradition-rich Jayhawks had to offer and wound up cutting down the nets after a 79-71 victory that required overtime. With the win, the Yellow Jackets (27-9) advanced to the Final Four, which will begin Saturday in San Antonio, Texas.

No wild game this time. Led by George Godsey, No. 24 Georgia Tech piled up 627 yards, the second-most in school history. The defense, meanwhile, picked up its first shutout since 1993. The result was a dominating 35-0 victory over visiting Virginia last night, ending a streak of thrilling games between the Atlantic Coast Conference rivals. The previous four meetings between these teams were decided by a total of 20 points, each team winning twice. "They should just put us in the national championship game," said Tech receiver Kelly Campbell, who had a 50-yard touchdown run and caught a 33-yard scoring pass.

Iowa solved Georgia Tech's explosive triple option and Ricky Stanzi threw two touchdown passes last night as the 10th-ranked Hawkeyes posted a 24-14 victory in the coldest Orange Bowl ever. Temperature at kickoff in Miami's Land Shark Stadium was 49 degrees, and Tech's offense was slow to warm up. The ninth-ranked Yellow Jackets averaged 35 points during the regular season, but their only score in the first three quarters came on Jerrard Tarrant's 40-yard interception return. "This was Hawkeye weather," Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz said.

Jason Varitek's fourth RBI of the game opened Georgia Tech's eight-run 10th inning, and the Yellow Jackets beat Florida State, 12-4, yesterday in the second round of the College World Series at Omaha, Neb. Matt Saier hit a grand slam later in the inning to lift Georgia Tech (49-16) to the second win of its first CWS appearance. Varitek, Baseball America's player of the year, hit a three-run homer in the fourth inning to give the Yellow Jackets a 4-1 lead. In a game last night, Fullerton State scored a record-tying 11 runs in the first inning and went on to eliminate defending champion Louisiana State, 20-6.

Penn State coach Joe Paterno wanted no parts of this game, and his quarterback, Tony Sacca, admitted he was ambivalent about playing in it. For once, the two almost agreed on something. But the seventh-ranked Nittany Lions voted to play Georgia Tech in last night's Kickoff Classic. Democracy prevailed, then Penn State went out and, with absolute tyranny, blew the Yellow Jackets right out of steamy Giants Stadium, 34-22, to fuel some talk about a possible national championship season in Happy Valley.

A late March baseball game at Griffin High School, about 40 miles south of Atlanta, attracted a gaggle of scouts. Pike County's Tristin English, a righthanded pitcher bound for Georgia Tech in the fall, was on the mound against Griffin's star, the smooth-swinging Cornelius Randolph. Griffin coach Alex Wyche batted Randolph leadoff, so English, whose fastball reaches the mid-90s, couldn't pitch around him. In each of his first two at-bats, the lefthanded-hitting Randolph scorched heaters to left-center field, the second resulting in a double that plated a run with two outs.

PITTSBURGH - This wasn't the way it was supposed to end. Not again. And there isn't any good way to explain it. Villanova already had set a program record by winning 33 games. Including its last 16, another program best. But the top-seeded Wildcats were beaten Saturday night at the Consol Energy Center by a North Carolina State team that had lost 13 times, 71-68, in the round of 32 of the NCAA Tournament's East Regional. A Wolfpack team that had won at Louisville and North Carolina and beaten Duke at home.

THERE REALLY wasn't any wrong answer to the question of who should be the fourth and final team in the first FBS playoff. You could have made a case for Ohio State, Baylor or TCU. The Selection Committee, not shockingly, went with Ohio State, which was fifth in last week's College Football Playoff poll. That was before the Buckeyes and their new quarterback - the second Urban Meyer has had to go with since Braxton Miller went down in August - gutted Wisconsin (10-3) in Saturday's Big Ten title game, 59-0.

IT'S CHAMPIONSHIP weekend, finally. The closing photo op for any team that's still in contention for one of the four spots in the first FBS playoff, where the most pertinent quandary seems to be whether there's any scenario in which the selection committee would actually find a way to leave out defending national champion Florida State - the lone unbeaten and winner of 28 straight - even if it wins yet one more of those too-close games against four-point...

OK, SO who among the playoff contenders are most likely to squander their opportunity? It happens almost every year. Somebody loses late to open things up for next up on the food chain. You don't always know the who part, just that, somewhere out there, dreams will go poof. With a selection committee now being asked to identify the four finalists for the inaugural tournament, it only adds to the probability. The lone certainty is that Alabama, Oregon and Florida State are in the pole positions.

AS WE REACH the midway point of the first FBS season with a playoff, the top of the rankings are where they were on Jan. 6: Florida State is first and Auburn is No. 2. But can they remain there? Or at least do enough to get in the inaugural Final Four? The Seminoles host Notre Dame next week and go to Louisville on Oct. 30. They're at Miami on Nov. 15 and host Florida two weeks later, not that either of those rivals are what they were. Then there's the ACC title game in Charlotte against, most likely, Virginia, Georgia Tech or Virginia Tech.

Villanova clearly was excited to play football in the first two weeks of the season, losing an overtime heartbreaker at Syracuse, an FBS team, and then rolling to a 44-point victory over Fordham, the 11th-ranked squad in FCS. The Wildcats had nowhere to take all this energy in Week 3 because they were idle. And coach Andy Talley hopes that didn't bring their momentum to a halt going into Saturday's Colonial Athletic Association opener against James Madison at Villanova Stadium.

Wayne Ellington and Thaddeus Young are the same age, came out of high school at the same time, and competed against each other in the Atlantic Coast Conference, and Ellington has nothing but sympathy for the situation in which his old friend and rival finds himself. The 76ers are poised to trade Young to the Minnesota Timberwolves as part of a three-way deal that will send Kevin Love to the Cleveland Cavaliers, have Andrew Wiggins join Young in Minnesota, and allow the Sixers to acquire another first-round draft pick and clear more salary-cap room ahead of the 2015 off-season.
