    I just turned it on and they are showing the 1992 FSU game and interviewing Richt for most of it.

    Seriously, I'm about to puke.

    Does your TV, or whatever device you're watching, have an ON/OFF switch??

    If not, a hammer would do.

    Would you like to upgrade your subscription to the Chrono package? For an additional $29.99 per month (for the first three months, after which the regular rate of $229.99 will take effect) you can receive your television signal from any point in the past! Instead of watching Florida State get every possible call to start their ACC reign while the Georgia Tech program slips into darkness on ABC, you could simply switch over to CBS and watch your Atlanta Braves win the first game of the World Series against Toronto, and use the false hope they fill you with to survive the endless agony of Atlanta sports in October!

    Ok, I'm guessing that most of you n00bs were not around for the 1992 F$U game.

    If you were, you would know the true meaning of PTSD and why I cannot change the channel or turn off the TV.

    I was five years old when that game was played. But as a teenager I had a pretty impressive collection of our televised games on meticulously labeled VHS tapes. I also always kept an eye on ESPN classic for any old games and the '92 Florida State game was in there. I think they aired it in the week leading up to the 2002 game, another disaster we should have won.

    Thinking about the stretch I witnessed in our drought vs Florida State, 1997-2003, inevitably leads to me cleansing my spirit with this:


    It felt like that football floated there in the air for years. And then the purest pandemonium I've ever been a part of.

    I don't remember who was in the booth for the '92 game. It wasn't Nessler was it?

    You often get hyperbole about a game changing things for a program, but that game literally did. Went in opposite directions after that debacle. Beginning of the end for Lewis and the start of Bowden’s knuckleheads atop college football.

    I was there. Went directly from Grant Field to Atlanta-Fulton County Stadium for World Series. Arguments can be made that the FSU game was a program changer. Still. you don't have to relive it, especially wit Saint Mark's commentary.

    I feel like it would be hard to overstate the importance of our series with FSU in the various directions the program has gone over the last 30 years. '92 is as you said. The '99 and '00 games, both games we should have won, helped put us in the spotlight and got us in the national discussion. In '01, if we play the Seminoles on September 15th as scheduled, it's us shellacking them 41-9 instead of North Carolina, we don't have two weeks of cooling off and feeling disappointed before the Clemson game so we not only beat them handily but we actually sever one of Dantzler's legs and go on to win the national title.

    The biggest shame of ACC expansion was and is that we don't play FSU every year. God, I hate them, and I miss those games.

    I've often thought about the 92 game and if Bobby Ross and Ralph was still here, would we have won that game going away? How different would things have been had Ross stayed or instead of Lewis, Homer Rice had given the job to Ralph or GOL?

    Was this the game with like literally no punts? Bobby B looked totally lost.

    I've never gotten a clear answer from those in the know on what happened with the B*** L**** tenure. I've heard there was division in the locker room over race issues, heard both BL and that ööööwad Luginbill were toxic, etc. Maybe beating FSU is a unifying win and we don't have the dark years waiting for Joe. But then we don't fire the coach and bring Ross' boys back, so Joe probably doesn't come here, BL retires in 2001 with an ACC title or two and we find what's sure to be the perfect replacement, a man with the sheer bravery to ask during his interview whether it's possible to win a national title at Georgia Tech.

    Yes, yes we would have won going away. The bad juju doesn’t go against us. The onside kick that was recovered that wasn’t. :mad:

    Those clowns haven’t been the same since the ‘15 game (small justice, I guess).

    One of my fondest GT memories is seeing CPJ skull drag a Mickey Andrews defense in ‘08/‘09. A true POS of the coaching annals.

    Pretty much this. Yep, Luginbill was named as the starter and lost a lot of the locker room. Remember a direct quote from a player that talked about the hatred they had for Bill Lewis.

    Jeebus, I need a drink now. Had blotted those years out of memory. A # of posters that like to bitch and moan now might have killed themselves during the Lewis error.

    That game was weird in every way. Had the lightning delay, we got ööööed over by the officials on a kickoff, our secondary was so incompetent it still makes me feel nauseous, we ran a lot of the QB Duck, nobody assassinated Mark Jones, Florida State players were openly, plainly, deliberately trying to injure Nesbitt and Dwyer while the refs wandered around aimlessly, and of course Joshua ööööing Nesbitt STOLE that ball back.
    I will always hate that prick and his stupid ööööing face. There aren't really a ton of outright "bad guys" in college coaching, but that piece of öööö is absolutely one of them.

    Take one of these and call Bobby Bowden in the morning. Tell him I said he's a little bitch and if I catch him on the street I'm going to break his jaw for Kelly Campbell.

    Such a weird night. Lightning game, all the Bowden kerfuffle, Nesbitt taking his ball back, no defense whatsoever. One of the best Tech games I’ve ever been to.
