Why? Seems like a bigger stadium to not put people in.
Seems like we’re proceeding under the assumption of “business as usual” in the fall unless and until changes are required.

I’m not sure that’s the right approach, but we’ll see how it works out.

Stansbury made the comment that he thinks we’ll be at full capacity in the fall, once the vaccine is rolled out to the majority of the country. I don’t hold his optimism, but that is another reason why MBS is being used.

Money. We get paid a milliom dollars a year for moving our best home game there.

It sucks but it's something we have to do given the state of the CFB world and our program.

Sounds like he arranged for Tech to have a seat at the table when we're all being mind-controlled by the nanobots or whatever. This is a big deal for our athletics program going forward. Granted, there's a substantial portion of the state population which will still be too intellectually deficient to control effectively but they'll be easy enough to identify. Either by the cheap, bright red t-shirts, or the masks they've emblazoned with "LAT THE BIG DOWG 8" backwards. Any way you slice it, our numbers are about to go up.

This still crosses my mind whenever the MBS series comes up and the fact that the entire slate hasn't been announced still gives me a bit of anxiety. When that rumor first popped up ~10-12 years ago about moving one of the Georgia games to the opener on a "neutral" field like the Dome, I lost my mind. It still makes me angry that anyone in our camp could ever be in favor of something like that.

I'm in favor of that. Gets the game out of the way for the next 51 weeks, and puts a hot nasty game into AC.

That's a nice neighborhood. I had a friend who lived on BreakYourNeck Trail, but he didn't care for the lady who lived on ööööAroundAndFindOut Way.
This is all funny, but I do want to be clear. I will murder mid if he provides a hint of where he lives. If the cops haven't caught me by now, it can't be possible.
