    Bobby Dodd Coaching Philosophy

    Does anyone remember Dodd's somewhat unique approach to the game? I recall that he published a Coaching Philosophy Handbook which is in the GT archives, but haven't seen it for years. Dodd was schooled by Bob Neyland and his Seven Maxims of Football are still recited by UT players before every...

    Help Please ... GT Tradition question

    Ok, to change the topic ... I've just gotten a new dog. And I want to name him in a way that reminds me of Tech. I've thought of Sideways (But that was a girl) Burdell (which could work) Heisman (which might work) What names are possible that would be good for a dog? Any suggestions?

    Game Day Report

    Since Labor Day, I’ve attended a GT game (STH), Tennessee at home and just returned from the Ole Miss-Alabama game. By far, the Ole Miss game was the most fun. The tailgating in the Grove, the facilities, the hospitality... outstanding. Yes, Bama whipped them, but everyone supporting their...

    When Does a College Fire It's Coach?

    I am amused watching the turmoil at the University of Tennessee re the fate of Coach Butch Jones. Here's the dilemma. If UT loses this weekend to Georgie, they will effectively be out of the SEC East race and its not even the end of September (bad). Butch has a terrible relationship withe...

    BDS Attendance

    Every now and again, the issue of filling BDS comes up. In this case, Atlanta United showed what a full stadium could look like and we all wonder what a Jacket experience would be in a full BDS. So, I looked at attendance data back to 2005. Tech averages 48,835 fans per home game. If you look...
