    I don’t have any data to support my assertion, but that’s the loudest I ever remember BDS being during a game.

    The entire stadium was going batshit. Lower decks, upper decks....I had just got through telling my dad that there is no way this happens two weeks in a row from the same exact spot.

    I always cringe when I hear the ESPN version of the broadcast. Brutal

    The only game I made it to that season. It took me 3 minutes to actually celebrate because I spent the first minute looking for yellow on the field and another minute to see the refs running off the field. I literally was staring at the guy holding the review headphones. Then I grabbed my son and we made the leap from behind the GT bench to the field. It was the best drive in the middle of the night back to South Georgia I had in a long time.

    I miss Brandon as a play by play announcer.

    He seems like a blip on the radar now; 2013-2015. Nothing necessarily against Demetra, but I liked Gaudin better -and of course miss Wes.

    I'm so lucky I blacked back in for the end of the game, unlike vpisu 2009. What an amazing game. It was the only game I went to that year, and I remember talking to some friends/fans the day before and they were all sad that we were gonna lose big. They didn't have their mind rite. BDS does pretty well on Saturday night homecoming games against highly ranked teams.

    I thought the older FSU fan beside me was hurt or perhaps even dead when everyone went crazy. He was laid back on the bleacher seat and I thought in the maelstrom perhaps somebody (me?) had hurt him. I checked on him in sincerity and he waved me off and said something along the lines of F off or leave me the F alone. Made me night. Best single moment in person in my fanhood. (The pick and the leap may be better but I was not there in person.)

    Coolest thing was the crowd volume going up and up and up. Loud for the kick, louder for the block, then louder again when it looked like Austin had some room, and then finally absolutely deafening when he helicoptered Aguayo. You can kinda hear it on the replay but the announcers are talking over it.

    I was there. I was excited (because of the block), but then during the return I kept expecting the play to be blown dead. I remember looking at a friend and asking something along the lines of "Is this real, does this count"? He said yes. I celebrated, heartily.

    I wasn't there in person but I watched it live from the Middle East watching drone strikes one screen the game on the other.

    The Heisman House was set up on campus. I had everyone vote for Dalvin Cook in my group for Heisman to curse him.

    You're welcome everyone

    I wasn't there in 2015, but Alabama 1962 was pretty loud, too.

    Say what you want about Mark Jones, "What a time to be alive" was a great call and made it extra memorable.
