    I didn’t see a single replay on the Jumbotron.

    The announcer reading homecoming results didn’t know how to pronounce Greek letters.

    Coach Key didn’t get to say “How ‘bout them dwags?” after “What’s the Good Word?”

    What do we have to do to get some competence?

    The speakers also sound bad. It sounds like the system doesn’t have enough power at times and it gets fade in fade out problems.

    I remember they fed in one rap song and it sounded like the speakers couldn't handle the low frequency range from the bass and there was just loud crackling for like three seconds

    I was commenting to a friend how glad I was that the PA has stopped playing music over the band....at the exact moment the PA started playing music over the band!

    After asking "What's the Good Word?", I think that asking "how 'bout dem dwags?" is forbidden, I think that in the last few years only Zach Lasky actually got it in. Something, something, Gold Standard probably. Piss being more objectionable than hell for some reason.

    I make sure that everyone who sits near me hears the question (and the appropriate response). Just doing my civic duty.

    Yeah, I saw a whole bunch of replays. Not sure what he's referring to here?

    Our announcer sounds like me doing an announcer voice

    A bunch? During the reviews all they had up on screen was a GT logo on a Navy background.

    I don't remember a replay of the endzone fumble on the Jumbotron. I wanted to see what happened and it was strange not to have one on such a critical play

    That's was a channel changing moment. One I didn't want to re-live.

    I looked for the same thing. Pretty sure they did not show it.

    They don't typically show replays while a injured player is on the field. During every injury they show the GT logo with blue background.

    They tried to start a Yellow Jackets chant with the Jumbotron. But their timing was off and screwed up the crowd. I mean honestly this is basic öööö.

    I also never realized that “money down” also meant that the band doesn’t play anything before a third down play. Which makes the crowd a lot slower to start making noise. It’s extremely odd to hear no music (band or stadium) before a big defensive play. And that means they play the song at other times, sometimes right after the other team converts for a 1st down. Like we’re celebrating them.

    Our whole stadium gameday production is a Cracker Jack operation right now. It's pretty bad.

    I also think that they don’t show replays of our miscues.

    You're either blind or you should get checked for Alzheimer's as there was many replays shown.
