Is Georgia Tech Football the Reason for the Turmoil in The US Financial Markets?

Atlanta, GA (Sept 21, 2008) - Sometime when reviewing pre-game notes for a television broadcast, there are some things that jump out at you, and some that do not. For yesterday's Mississippi State University (MSU) game against Georgia Tech, there is one note that jumped out as very relevant these days, and maybe a reason the stands were so empty for the game.

Ah the ACC, a conference that claims to be BCS Worthy, but cannot even come close to filling their seats for a game against an SEC opponent.

Georgia Tech and MSU never played each other when they were both in the Southeastern Conference from 1933 to 1963. In fact the last time they played was October 4, 1929. October 28, 1929 was "Black Monday", the symbolic symbol of the start of the depression. That game was also played at Georgia Tech, with Tech prevailing 27-13.

So answer me this. We are in the midst of perhaps the worst financial crisis the United States has ever faced. In the middle of this, Georgia Tech plays a game against Mississippi State. If the markets do crash again over the next few weeks, should Tech and Mississippi state EVER be allowed to play against each other again? Should Georgia Tech ever be allowed to do their own non-conference home scheduling again? Maybe, just maybe there is a hidden reason why the called the "Ramblin Wreck of Georgia Tech."
