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.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The sidelines and the seats in the Georgia coaches' booth will look significantly different Saturday when the Bulldogs take on Penn State in the TaxSlayer Bowl. A multitude of coaching changes began the day after Georgia's 13-7 victory over Georgia Tech in its final game of the regular season. Mark Richt, the Bulldogs' head coach for 15 seasons, was fired with the intention that he would coach in the bowl game, but he changed his mind after being introduced Dec. 4 as the new head coach at Miami.

NEW YORK - If you've been paying attention, then you know more than a few ranked teams have gotten knocked off by the Monmouths and Northern Iowas of the food chain in the early going. Ask Notre Dame, or even North Carolina. Then there's No. 8 Villanova, which hasn't lost a game in November since 2012 and now can't lose one until next year. Of course, the Wildcats have seldom lost in any month before March the last two seasons. Anyway, on Black Friday at the Barclays Center - which will be the site of opening-weekend NCAA Tournament games - the Wildcats improved to 6-0 with a 69-52 win over Georgia Tech (4-2)

The last time Andrew Gardner traveled to his home state of Georgia for an NFL game was in his rookie season with the Miami Dolphins. It was opening day, and Gardner, a sixth-round pick out of Georgia Tech, told all his family and friends to be at the Georgia Dome because he was going to be dressed and ready for his debut. Something changed, however, between the time Gardner told his family and friends to be there and the time the Dolphins finalized their active roster for the game. The 6-foot-6 left tackle did not dress.

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...
