    I am so pumped. I accepted a job offer a couple days ago. It has been 27 years since I left the Atlanta area to join the US marines and I haven't lived there since. No more watching home games on TV or computer! I'll be buying season tickets and going to Bobby Dodd in person! I can't wait. Wohoo!

    Glanville used to say if you are not in Atlanta you are just camping out

    (Did anybody tell him we're gonna need daily practice updates now that he's in town? Shhh.)

    Seriously though, welcome home. Things have changed a bit since you were last a resident, by the way.

    ETA: Congrats on the new gig.

    I was extremely close to accepting a job in ATL in 2006, but did not want to disrupt my daughter's last 1-1/2 years of H.S. After this latest winter....I am regretting turning the offer down.

    Congrats on the job and the ability to watch Tech games in person again.

    What part of town (or the area) are you going to be looking to live in? Things have really changed in 27 years. If you need help finding a place, I've got some excellent real estate connections who have lifelong experience in ATL real estate.

    Thanks but I already own a home there. I'll just be living there full time now instead of vacations.

    I appreciate everybody's thanks for my service. While it is true that I left ATL for the service, I only served a 5 year tour. I don't mean to give a false impression. I have been doing something far less dangerous since then, mainly teaching and coaching. Send your thanks my son's way. He just enlisted and will ship out to Parris Island in a few weeks. Ooooh Rah!

    As far as analysis is concerned. I can't wait to attend some practices when possible. I am soooooo excited!
