    Since we are doing polls, we should combine them with Did you attend Tech and want to keep the option.

    Or did you attend Tech, want to keep the option and have a dog named Skippy?

    Baumholder! That's a place I haven't thought about since I was there in 72/73. Not stationed there, but went there for maneuvers, training, punishment, etc. Can't believe we still have troops there.

    Tech grad, 77. As are two nieces and their husbands. Disgusted with some of my Tech friends that live within a couple of hours drive of BDS that won't even accept my offer of 50 yd line tickets.

    I work with someone who claims to be a big Tech fan but hasn’t been to a game in years. Complains about CPJ’s offense...boring. I sent him CPJ’s list of accomplishments but he didn’t care. He lives less than an hour from BDS.

    Man this pisses me off living in Seattle. I made the drive every home game when I lived in Orlando. I’m jealous of anyone who can make it to a game without paying 600-800 just for plane travel.

    After all these years, I still have trouble calling it BDS... It's still Grant Field to me! :)

    Then again, the "Indianapolis" Colts also still sounds strange to my ears...

    Now Jacket, the complexity of this answer will require an explanation for the Techsters....

    You do not "understand this thread"? Didn't you get the message? It's about uniforms. You know, wrong shade of gold, too much blue, not enough white, too much white, white helmets vs gold helmets. That sort of thing.

    That is pretty much how my brother in law (RIP) described it. EE graduated in 1969. Smartest man I ever knew and was a true gentleman and a wonderful husband to my sister.

    Attended and got out with a Mechanical Engineering degree. I was a student at Tech in 1990. It was a glorious time for athletics and there are few who received more value from their student athletic fees than I.

    BChE75, MSChE76. What a time to be alive!

    The % of sidewalk fans is a lot higher than I thought; delighted to see it, because GT football, like English beer, is an acquired taste, especially during the Flexbone Era.

    Even in something like a social science course this happened to many of us. Was it the history? Professor who showed up on his first day and announced “I am Professor Bastard W**** and I have that name for good reason”. He lived up to his name and did not make it easy in a non STEM course.
