Legendary game. I can still remember how crazy it was that night.I was thinking of a former VT coworker, and after reminiscing realized yesterday was the 10th anniversary of 'All the way turnt up'
The night Gary Lee returned a Ugag kickoff back 90 yards for a TD in heavy fog at Grant FieldSome of these games are hard to forget, not only because of the win, but because of the atmosphere. I'll offer an initial top 3. Watching these highlights gave me chills all over again.
- 2009 vs. Virginia Tech - "All the way turnt up!". My 2 cents... this was the loudest game from end the end that I can remember.
- 2016 vs. Florida State - "Kick 6". One of the loudest, most exhilarating single moments during my tenure as a GT fan.
- 2006 vs. Maryland - Michael Johnson
savessacks the day. Sweet relief, kind of like Cooper Taylor's forced fumble vs. FSU which is an honorable mention for me. This one was nuts for a few game-saving downs.
What else you got?
When I think of all of the games that were loud, UVA, Maryland, Uga, etc., the last play of this game has to go down as the loudest play ever in Bobby Dodd Stadium history, maybe in the state of Georgia. There were fans actually crying for joy after we scored with no time left.2015 FSU GAME

Very loud. I was there, too. But the game was at the cesspool.The loudest would be during 51-48 ot win against uga. Crowd was going nuts both ways - uga blocks 3rd down fg attempt creating roar for uga but Goose recovers blocked kick and referees pretty quickly decided and rightfully so that 4th down (most in the stands had no idea what the rule was) - one play later and game over. A lot happened pretty quick. Today - the refs would have discussed the call for 20 minutes but not then - put the ball down and 4th down. It was I believe louder than FSU. The "rule" was then that if recoverd by kicking team behind the line of scrimmage - beyond it and defense gets ball , then still their ball. But how many times kick on 3rd down?
