    I noticed that the PA announcer alternated between saying "It's third down!" and "It's money down!" seemingly at random during the UNC game. Pivotal downs were equal parts third/money. Do you think this is some official mandate from the GTAA, or is it because he got embarrassed saying money down?

    I also heard our band playing f-tuning on random downs, which weirds me out having heard it on every third down for at least 20 years.

    The band and money downs are equally a joke.

    I think he was afraid people would ask for a refund on their money downs

    Same thing was happening during the Citadel game. The only game where he said money down on 3rd every time was USF.

    Edit:
    Dang it. Didn't see @GTWannaBee 's response before posting.

    It was extremely annoying........money down.......seriously?

    UNC took the damn money and went straight to the bank.

    At least I won't hear it this weekend at Wallace Wade.

    Flight of the bubble bee make any since to movie addicts? Did you prefer the rap music or flight of the bubble bee in the movie drum line.

    I am more pro band on 3rd down than money down.... or how about announce 3rd down with ca-ching sound or some other ominous noise ... and let the band play!

    Very sad that we can hear what some P/A announcer is saying instead of the system being drowned out by fans screaming.

    Yes, the players really have responded to it with enhanced performance.

    I like it too. I just don't like the way our announcer says it.

    You mean the opposing offensive players, they have really been jacked up by it. Apparently.

    You have to ask?
    The PA announcer needs a spotter so he can announce the tackler before the beginning of the next play.

    This. It should be an untouchable part of game day on the flats. F-Tuning has been the best third down panic attack-soundtrack in the nation since I was a kid.
