Default The Diesel # 21 hating on Tech

I am not sure if aliens took over Dwyer's body or this is how he really feels, but he posted this on his Facebook:

Jon DwyerIts a shame bc no matter wat UGA tennesse or anybodies record they have a packed out game no matter wat bc they are loyal fans came to games last yr bc we where winning..that shoes more and more how hypocritical ppl are and just like kyle jackson until we get pack out games u can kiss the fact of being on college gamed...ay and receiving big time recruits goodbye..it also has the effects on the players

Someone needs to let Dwyer know about the 10,000+ unused student tickets per game for UGA this year, and that's student tickets alone. Our worst day this year had 10,000 empty seats in the entire stadium, counting students, alumni, and sidewalk fans combined.

GT is a small school with difficult entry requirements who's graduates go all over the world when they get out. Jon should understand this.

Even if you had put your semicolon in the right place, your query suggests that the qb_depth_chart object is highly denormalized, or this would return multiple records.

I've been drunk and wrote on facebook too. It happens from time to time. I'm going to assume that's what is going on here.

Two things: (1) many on here have said the same things about our fan base so while it upsets me at the level of a southern man should know better than to air dirty laundry in public, I'm not bothered that he feels that way; (2) his grammar from a modern Tech man almost made me cry; it's worse than mack's

I loved Diesel, but he needs to go back to school if the NFL doesn't work out. How can you make it at Tech for 3 years and not know the difference between "where" and "were", "shows" and "shoes", "their" and "there".
And Tech has loyal fans, just not as many as Uga or Tenn. I was at every home game Diesel ever played in, as were many others.
BTW Diesel, Gameday doesn't care how many fans there are. They want a compelling matchup of top tier teams. Maybe these players should look in the mirror if they want to know why we aren't on gameday much.

I would guess average attendance/alumni living within driving distance ratio is as good or better for Tech than most places. UGA has 25k students. If 80% stay within driving distance of Athens, then that's about 250k alumni from the last forty years. That's not including people like wives and sidewalk fans.

Similar numbers for schools like UT, Clemson, etc. And those schools are also not in a city like Atlanta with a lot of transplants. In Alabama, the only sport around college football, period. They don't have that many fewer people than Georgia, but they have no pro teams worth talking about.

So there's a lot of reasons that don't involve Tech fan "hardcore-ness" for why we have attendance issues. I'll admit it sucks for recruiting, but hopefully it will get better as we start winning.
