    I think you misread my comment or at least missed the sarcasm part at the end. You and I are saying the same thing. Our brand isn't working right now. We ARE second fiddle. CGC is working to remove that label with new branding.

    Exactly my thoughts here.

    Hahaha, I'm actually 28. Don't get me wrong. I'm all for innovation but invitation that sticks with tradition. To what we are doing on Saturday, I think Tech is trying to make a good gameday experience to draw in fans but there's still a long way to go. The execution if poor at best this season. I've been pretty disappointed, to be honest. The stadium definitely needs some upgrades. New paint to hide abundance of rust. New PA system that doesn't crackle and mics cut off, etc. I'll be honest, I love BDS but other programs are doing some crazy cool things to their stadiums and atmosphere to impress fans and recruits. Take the lights at Sanford stadium. I hate to admit it but those things were awesome really do stick with recruits. I think Tech should focus on bettering the overall production of the game day experience. That makes everyone happy.

    I looked in the GT archives & teams in '46,'47 '48,'49,'51,thru '58 then 1960 thru 1968 all wore white jerseys for the team photo. I did not see one for 1950 or 1959 & by then I got tired of looking. Those were the " Golden Days " of GT football & the look was consistent. So how is that for your 5 year period ?

    Seriously? You're going with the "we did it back in the 60's" argument? Some of the parents of today's recruits weren't even alive back then.

    Good, I like a happy ending. I will say, I'm not happy we're wearing anything other than GWG... it's just a concession I'm OK with in the grand scheme of things.

    This would be true, as regards a consistent jersey for the team photo, for every college team I’m America back then.

    I do too. But I also dug the honeycomb helmets. Not the uniforms though. They were trash.

    FWIW, It might be better if nobody recognizes us this year.

    Almost every team in College Football has worn a specialty uniform that had colors that weren't theirs (EG: FSU wearing black, Boise in Gray, Michigan State in Bronze).
    This is the first time Tech has worn a non tech color since we wore black in the 80s. And the gray has significance in the history of Tech football anyway.
    Chill. This isn't ruining tradition, and it's for a good cause.

    Also, this is the first time I can remember that we have a uniform that has ZERO navy in it anywhere.

    Is the ACC patch navy?

    The photo of the actual uniforms it looks like it is black but in the uniform outline that was also posted the patch looks to be Navy

    Well actually I was replying to your statement that I could not find a 5 year period where jersey color was consistently white. So who cares if today's kid's parents were not alive. The point is Tech should ALWAYS wear white jerseys.
    Dodd had it right & for one thing they are cooler for the players to wear than a dark color.
    That is all . I am merely stating my preference for what Tech should wear but apparently a lot of you young whippersnappers don't care.

    You just gave me the first reason I have to appreciate them.

    Also of note as far as details, it looks like the logo used on the helmets is not the traditional helmet logo, but the standard GT logo used everywhere else.

    I don’t like the stipple stripes on the shoulder and pant stripes. I like the numbers. Love the helmet.

    There’s a lot of tighty-whities getting bunched up in this thread. If you could get through the years of Russell, you can make it 1 game.
