    At one time I would have cared. Doesn’t bother me at all now.

    Big deal.

    Bigger issues to me.

    As someone who thinks that colors matter and less navy and more gold is important - I do not think this is that important. I also am pretty confident with the amount of content put out there under Collins and the meticulous-ness of the branding - people will get it down pretty quickly. I think you'll see recruits refer to it as "The Institute" pretty ubiquitously a year from now.

    "Georgia Tech University" always gets under my skin. Of course, maybe Stephon didn't really know. My understanding is that he had a pretty cavalier attitude about actually being on campus and attending class for that one year.

    Well, did Stephen say it that way? I was annoyed because the article wasn’t quoting Stephon, and as journalists they should get it right.

    First, sorry for autocorrecting his name.

    Second, I understand he said it that way. My point was he wasn't being quoted.....and the journalist said it that way. Oh....never mind...LOL

    Georgia Institute of Technology, also referred to as Georgia Tech, is a university. Their nomenclature doesn't bother me either. As someone posted, we have bigger issues to address.

    I'm way more bothered by our jack *** fans who can't wait to correct a kid's mistake when announcing an offer, rather than celebrating the kid's moment and letting the coaches offering correct the kid behind closed doors.

    Always a great way to make a first impression by our fans.

    No time is wasted letting everyone know of our pedantic tendencies. Truth in advertising!

    pedantic? Is that a real word or a typo?
