Guests include defensive end (and current Tech assistant coach) Marco Coleman, linebacker Calvin Tiggle and kicker Scott Sisson, who drilled the game-winning field goal with seven seconds remaining in the thriller over UVA. Also joining the after-show will be current Georgia Tech director of athletics Todd Stansbury, who was Tech’s academic advisor for football in 1990.
