Stealing the 'T' from the Tech Tower is a Georgia Tech tradition that dates back to the 1960s. Students plot to steal the 'T', and if they're successful it's returned during homecoming.
Seemingly harmless, and kind of cool if you ask me. Recently however, filching the 'T' from the Tech Tower has spread to boosting all off the T's around, and off campus.
One of our T's went missing this weekend, and rivalries are fun.
After Georgia Tech took a three point lead with less than a minute to go, I stood hunched over on the bleachers in the East Stands. My mouth remained open, but I was no longer screaming. A day of drinking PBR-limes, RAILs, and bourbon be damned, I was left sober by watching approximately 56 minutes of missed opportunities over the course of the night. With a clear mind I thought the worst —Alabama '09, Boise '10— history was going to repeat itself.
