In FanSided’s recent Fandom250 release, the Georgia Tech fan base was left out but how can that change going forward?!
Don’t worry fellow fans of the Ramblin Wreck, there is always next year to crack FanSided’s Fandom250. The annual list is a collection of 250 fanbases throughout the world that includes fanbases for celebrities, college teams, professional sports team, and more.
In total 24 college fanbases made and just four of those were ACC teams. That being said, what can fans do to perhaps crack next year’s top 25?! It doesn’t take anything crazy like revolting against coaching decision. While it may have worked for Tennessee, it’s not going to work at most places.
In all seriousness, it’s pretty simple to earn a chance at cracking the Fandom250. Here are a few places for fans to focus on so Tech can crack the Fandom250 next year.
The biggest thing fans can do is ATTEND games. In 2017, the Jackets reached just an average of 85% capacity of Bobby Dodd Stadium!
According to the NCAA, Bobby Dodd on average had nine thousand seats open. While that doesn’t look like much in bigger stadiums, in stadiums like Bobby Dodd, it’s easy to see all the open seats. While there are plenty of fans and alumni that make the trip to Bobby Dodd every gameday, Tech’s student body’s attendance has been rather disappointing.

Students, get out there and support your school every game. Not only will it improve the atmosphere for all fans but it will also give the team a morale boost especially against some of the better teams that come through The Flats.
Attendance at basketball games is the same, yes it’s been a rough ride for the Jackets so far this year but make sure to get out to McCamish and root on the Jackets!
Be Vocal :
There’s a fair share of people on social media who are vocal about the Jackets performances and that’s great to see. It makes the game better for all those who are sitting and home and doesn’t want to disturb a loved one or friend about a game they may find meaningless by talking to yourself. That being said, there is room for everyone! A lot of the fanbases on the Fandom250 are often some of the more vocal fanbases as well (Looking at you Tennessee). Don’t forget to use hashtags on Twitter as well!
One of the common themes of all the college fanbases on the Fandom250 is that they all have deep traditions that they still live by to this day. Tech has plenty of traditions and there are plenty of fanbases that accept them and love them. That being said, the younger portion of the fanbase must accept these traditions and carry them on.
One of those traditions includes your deep hate for Georgia. That rage for the Bulldogs must grow and keep growing, not to a violent level but you need to be filled with rage every college football season and beyond. TO HELL WITH GEORGIA
The Ramblin Wreck is one of the greatest traditions in all of sports and should give fans chills every time it comes onto to the field. If you’re not getting chills, there is something wrong with you!
Overall, Georgia Tech fans are passionate there is no doubt about that. However, the Tech fan base needs to show it’s passion and love for GT sports more especially at games and online. Be there, loud, be vocal, and always remember TO HELL WITH GEORGIA!
