    I don’t even mind that, but putting the “that’s another...” on it every time made it super clunky.

    It’s annoying

    And why isn’t it a money down when we’re on offense? It’s an important play then too. Makes it seem as if it’s inconsequential down on offense

    I know it was USF, but we held them to 4-15 on third down. When was the last time we held anybody that many times on 3rd down?

    This pales in comparison to Tennessee having Lil John make a “3rd Down for What” track and playing it every 3rd down.

    It must have been really debilitating to the defense when we had those games where we were 8 for 12 on 3rd down (and 3 of 4 on 4th). That whistle must have been like nails on a chalk board to them.

    Like the steam whistle sound, I view the Chords/F-tuning/etc. from the Band on 3rd and 4th downs as a tradition that should stay and not be effed with. If you wanna have the cards on the sidelines, cheerleader cards and "Money Down" on all the Boards then fine. Find some way to incorporate (and not lose) one of our long standing traditions. At 46 y/o, I am showing my age, but even my 13 and 17 y/o sons thought it was either "annoying" or "meh". They should find a way to make these work together IMO.

    Regarding the whistle, I don't care about the animated version that (thankfully) has gone away or the faux whistle in the endzone, but a real steam whistle is a part of our school's history and should stay incorporated in the football games.

    I think the announcer, any announcer, doing that kind of stuff ("First DOOOOWWWWNNNN", "3rd DOOOOWWWWWWNNNNN", "IIIIIIIITTTTTTT'S' MONEY DOWN!") is lame as hell regardless. Would rather have a signature sound whether it be the whistle, chords or some snippet of a song to signify those things.

    Would you old farts like it better if Jim Cramer did a version of it on the Jumbotron with his latest stock picks?

    Or maybe we could get Trump to do it on the Jumbotron. Get JJacket triggered. Put some pads on him and get a sack on money down.

    I think you're underestimating how cool of a word "penultimate" is.

    I realize I kind of glossed over your use of that word, and you are correct. Apologies. My comment was just more of a general statement. LOL

    Beat a team to whom you lost last season? Do that in the second game of the season? Make a QB who ran for 2TD's and threw for 2 TD's last season against you look like it was his first game?
    And then complain about some new saying they're using to pump up the defense?

    We're Georgia Tech...we can do that!

    Just play a cash register sound instead of articulating the money down stuff. What is it called when we need a 4th down stop? Seems anticlimactic after hyping the 3rd down.

    We need 4. We get 2. Trump walks onto the field with 50 sharpies. Draws a line at 2 yards and screams "FIRST DOWN"
