    We were at the game today. Money Down$$ on 3rd down. Pretty dumb. Thats got to go. Sorry. Feel like a little bit of Miami flavor to that saying.

    I agree. I also hate the Wreck on the field, Buzz, the cheerleaders doing their cute little slogans and could do without the band.

    BTW, before I get a bunch of big cry’s, this is an attempt at sarcasm.

    It works as long as the defense is decent.

    Let's see what happens if we are ever down 3 or 4 TDs. Can we elect to turn it off or do we "money down!" when we are down 21 with 2 minutes left?

    I wonder if anyone has ever thought about that.

    If the players like it, do it. I’m done caring about this kind of $&@*.

    Money down is dumb. I just don't get riled up hearing that vs "it's THIRD DOWN". I'm in favor of whatever gets the biggest crowd response though, and I think that should be the goal for anything we do with the PA.

    I realize that's just, like, my opinion man. Some of y'all just like change for the sake of change... and vice versa.

    No whistle was not good.

    Run-out behind wreck was horrible.

    It worked fairly well. Maybe we should call our offensive 3rd downs money downs as well.

    Good point. I'd much rather go back to how we did it before...back when we were losing to USF. </sarcasm>

    It was the worst Wreck run-out since 1961

    They sprayed some smoke kinda like Miami did but they didn't come through a banner and break the banner. That happened after a hype video on the video screen.

    Reck leaves tunnel and drives across field to its parking lot.

    Team stays behind and sways back and forth in a tunnel that looks like the Hartsfield runways at night and starts filing out when the smoke starts.

    It was pretty much, from the stands, just like the team running out for warm ups. No sledgehammer. Did we carry the American flag even?
