Timeout with Casey Miles

Another year of sports is starting and Tech fans have already let me down. In what was supposed to be one of the biggest matchups of the early season, Tech fans failed to turn out.

Not just few and far between, but bunches, easily seen from the vantage point granted to me. Sure, there were people who never reached their seats, instead opting to watch the game from one of the balconies or the field-level restaurants. However, for a game that sets the tone for the season, the turnout was lackluster.

For a neutral site game that was only one in name, the fan turnout was disappointing. Should I expect anything different at this point though? The athletic department announced that all of the seats offered for Tech were sold out, but the only people selling out so far this season are Tech fans.
