I grew up not a UGA fan. One of my earliest memories involves a vinyl covered stool that my Aunt and Uncle had in their home when we were visiting. It had a Yellow Jacket on it. My Uncle graduated from Georgia Tech. From then on, I understood us to be a Tech family. Because… Continue reading It Wasn’t About the Hoodie–Not Really
