    Instead of IPTAY (I Pay Ten A Year) it'll be IPTAS (I Pay Ten A Stop). I'm down with that....but let's make the charity split the money with the GTAA.

    Charity? Charity?

    50% to the GTAA, 50% to the bagmen.

    I once wrote a letter to the 'Nique proposing that blocks be penalized for empty seats at kickoff. Jimmies were rustled.

    Whatever happened to the students getting free öööö every game like shakers or towels? It provided good entertainment in 2003 to tie the towels into knots and try to grenade toss them at the Back Judge or Field Judge. It provided good entertainment and a much-needed distraction from watching UGA spank our team.

    Oh. My bad.

    I guess my lawn dart promotion idea won't happen.

    In the CSB department, I pulled up to the ATM this afternoon and my 8 year old starts chanting from the back:

    Go get the money,
    Go get the money!

    Go get the money,
    Go get the money!

    I shiz you not.

    You're darn right. I am old geezer, and I can't relate to kids these days. I would never even consider dressing up for a football practice like it was Halloween. I don't use Facebook and # means phone number to me. I'd be a terrible recruiter.

    Nobody has a problem with money down

    money down and chords can exist together

    don’t crap on old great stuff just because you want to do new stuff

    Coit needs to tell you whippersnappers about when the kids really ruined the atmosphere by singing a cussword filled song after scores and rutting up the field by driving a junky ford on it. It was awful.

    I’m 27 years old and can tell you that this new generation of Kids have such a fast paced mind that it’s hard to keep their attention. A losing season can sure keep them from coming.

    But I guarantee you winning cures all. It’s a ööööing constant. And good coaching is as well. You get these kids to experience one magical season and they will be hooked for life. Happened to me.

    That's more so because you don't have a likeable personality.

    A lot of the suggestions for changes in BDS mentioned here are cool and good ideas. But with every penny sunk into the current BDS for new features the dream of building a proper completely new one in my lifetime dies a little more. I always thought BDS could be like a hybrid between Autzen and Doak ... classy brick facade and using space under the seats year round for maximum building utility like Doak ... optimized to squeeze every bit of noise retention possible from a 55,000 person crowd like Autzen.

    True this.

    And we were real men who took drownproofing and faced death those mornings at 8am. We weren't... whatever you kids are today.

    I was too busy drinking someone else’s liquor and cheering on ND.
