    Hi everyone..I am Tonya, mom of three and a business owner in Biloxi, MS. We did a college visit at GT this past week and absolutely loved it. I joined to learn more about the school and athletics along with the area.

    Welcome aboard. We are a mixture alumni, faculty, former players, family of players, students, sidewalk fans (those special people who just like GT)....what you would call a true melting pot of Georgia Tech fandom. The one thing we have in common is our love of all things Georgia Tech. Welcome to the GT family. #TogetherWeSwarm

    We'd be happy to see Ryan on the Flats!

    Is your last name pronounced Spears or Spy-ers?

    Thank you. It is a special place. I could certainly see him there.
    It is pronounced Spy-ers. Thank you for asking.

    Hi everyone. I am home grown east of Atlanta and a life long fan of the Jackets. I have lurked on a few GT boards and finally landed here. You all seem to be the most informed and civil with the obvious exception of any uniform thread. I had no idea the Schrödinger's uniform, which can be both blue and gray, would incite such a “Jerry Springer” like reaction. That was entertaining.

    I've lurked here for a bit now, and just found this thread. I'm Chris, was a ChemE major at Tech for 2.5years before I transferred away (one of my biggest regrets in life) to finish with a biology degree at North Georgia. I just wasn't in the proper mindset to take the rigors of Tech and the new found freedom of being a kid turned loose in the big city (I come from a very rural north GA town), and it got to me. Still hate that most of my college education came from Tech yet my degree says another school...

    Been a Jacket fan since a very young age when I (inexplicably) asked for a UGA uniform as a kid (Hershel), and my dad (huge UGA hater, long story) helped show me the Tech ways. I am the general manager of a golf course near Athens (I have a LOT of fun with that!) and after many years of not doing so, purchased season tickets again this year. So excited for the upcoming year and the energy surrounding Coach Collins! I did fully support CPJ, but I think the change came at the right time and was greatly needed.

    I plan on actively engaging this forum more, and maybe even meeting some of you all at the games. I have two tickets (dad and I), but his health is poor and he may only be able to come to 1-2 games. So I wouldn't mind even sharing a ticket to some games with a good Tech fan!

    GT grad from way back when BME was mechanical engineering. To fully date myself, I was a freshman when Bud Carson arrived. Yes, I met Dodd, but I am not Dodd-like. I've seen the good and the bad for many years. Rock Perdoni was awesome. :)

    Hey everyone. I'm Robert. '94 Computer Science grad. My daughter just started at Tech in Environmental Engineering.

    The wife convinced me to get the stinger pass this season. I am glad she did. It felt great to be in the stands again.
