Weekend of graduation would be a fine time for this, all of the Nadlickers and Parents wanting a photo there.

I wonder if someone can pull it off again, say the Saturday after Thanksgiving.

I'll settle for Vad going to Athens and bringing back some hedges!!

It was not a BOR prank unless someone has done it before or since the linked article.

I heard a story back in the early 80's that the Tech Band was not allowed to do their walk through on Saturday morning at Sanford Stadium before the COFH game because a few years earlier they each had a handfull of rye grass, made a GT symbol as part of the show and dropped it in place. Later in the winter there was beautiful stand of rye grass in the form of the GT symbol right in the center of the field.

I also heard that the UGA band tried to retaliate by doing the same on Grant Field the next year. They didn't realize that Rye Grass won't grow on Astroturf.
