March 9: Three Big Things


Georgia State releases 2021 football schedule

As announced last week, Georgia State’s fall slate will easily see them play their most prominent schedule yet. A few highlights are a Sept. 4 season opener vs. Army, Sept. 11 at North Carolina, Sept. 25 at Auburn and Nov. 13 at Coastal Carolina.

The Panthers will return all 11 offensive starters and nine starters on defense. Each person’s experience will prove vital as they face two Power-5 teams for the first time since 2014 when they played Washington and Clemson.


The NBA All-Star Game was a success, for the most part

As Team LeBron steamrolled Team Durant in Sunday’s NBA All-Star Game, the Philadelphia 76ers’ two representatives could not participate. Ben Simmons and MVP candidate Joel Embiid missed the game after their barber tested positive multiple times for COVID-19. 

Later Sunday night, all players and coaches involved in the event tested negative. Philadelphia, the top team in the Eastern Conference, remains optimistic the dynamic duo can return this week.


New details emerge on Tiger Woods’ car crash

Two weeks after Woods’ one-vehicle crash, the 15-time major winner seems to have survived a near-death experience. Multiple sources indicated he was initially conscious, but residents near the accident say he was unresponsive and unconscious.

Woods’ Twitter stated that his injuries included multiple fractures to his upper and lower fibula and tibia, as well as comminuted open fractures, where the bones stick out of the skin.

Now in stable condition, but doctors predict a long road to recovery for the 45-year old.
