Georgia State is not considered to be anywhere near Georgia Tech’s league when it comes to sports. The Panthers are a wannabe upstart, right?
You may want to rethink those thoughts.
The Panthers basketball team made it into the March Madness tourney last spring, Georgia Tech hasn’t made it for years. They not only made it in, they made some noise.
Georgia State’s football team is a long way from being Georgia Tech. But they play in a far superior stadium, the Georgia Dome. Sure, Bobby Dodd Stadium has a lot of history and all that. But it is what it is, a relic of a football stadium.
Now they are ditching the Georgia Dome to make Turner Field their new football home. Georgia State and partner Carter are planning student housing so the stadium will be pseudo on campus.
It will be interesting to see what they do with The Ted.
