It was a wild day for ESPN and contracts last Thursday. While most of the nation tuned in for LeBron James’s televised contract announcement, ESPN also inked a 12-year contract with the ACC for exclusive television rights to all conference controlled football games and men’s basketball games, amongst other sports. It should lead to more athletes being exposed to a national audience, always a good thing.
A current Tech student is suing the school for injuries suffered after falling from the Ramblin’ Wreck on April 16 of last year. While making a left turn onto Ferst Drive from Techwood Drive, the railing the student was holding on to broke loose from the car.

Next time, use a counter or set the power to low.
