1. They did it on a Friday night, and why they did that, I dont know

2. It was raining

3. I had a friend that went, and said there were at least 800-1200 people there by his estimation, just that everyone was under an overhang or in the concourse when this picture was taken.

Friday night, unseasonably cold weather, driving rain, and a bad team.  I'm not surprised.

I'd also like to point out that the source for this information is an obscure sports blog citing "social media."

Georgia Tech's SBNation site, "From The Rumble Seat", had some very nice suggestions to boost their spring game attendance actually. My personal favorite was based on the idea that since Falcons fans will pack the GeorgiaDome for two preseason games, dress in Falcons uniforms, then find an opponent either real or made of a team collected from campus, and very few people would be able to tell the difference. 

Seriously though, an intrasquad scrimmage in awful weather on a Friday in Atlanta's traffic seemed like a doomed idea from the beginning.

for the Techies, weather aside. If the school decides to try it again next year they need to go to the streets and beg people to come, some alumnus who owns a resteraunt  should give away free hot dogs, do something. That could even hurt recruiting worse than being in the same state as the Georgia Bulldogs.

Georgia Tech should host a sorority mud-wrestling tournament after the spring game next year...  wait nevermind...  it is a "Tech" school afterall.

is seriously my favorite to watch in all of college football. Now those lineman can run block! Love me some triple option and wing t, deception running attacks.
