Jackets Prepare for Air Force Game

Tech meets Air Force in the Chik-Fil-A Peach Bowl Classic......... Evidently one of Air Force's hoops players was suspended for cheating, but will be re-instated in time to make the GT game. He will play, but not start...... In other ACC stories, GT is not the only team having trouble at the free throw line - FSU also..........

Meanwhile, this on John Salley and his return to GT:

Coming home: It's been almost 20 years since John Salley helped turn the Georgia Tech basketball team into a national and ACC power. Along with point guard Mark Price and coach Bobby Cremins, Georgia Tech was the best thing happening in the Atlanta sports scene through much of the 1980s.

This week, Salley, who's jersey is retired at Tech, will give the graduation address at the fall semester commencement ceremony.

Salley has put his Tech degree to good use. After a successful NB A career, Sally is now involved in the entertainment business, including the co-host of a popular show on Fox Sports.

Salley should be an inspiration to all young athletes. He has proven there's life after the playing days end and the cheers stop.
