4 tickets, 4 waffles, 4 coffees

Check out the fourth panel here:

Has Tech actually incorporated Waffle House into one of its on-site murals?  It appears so.  I don’t know whether to be amused or impressed.

It feels like we’re an announcement away from Waffle House taking over concessions at BDS.  Can’t wait for the hacks at the AJ-C to incorporate smothered and covered into headers about Jacket games.

    Is Waffle House not considered an impermissible benefit?


  2. Love the “5 Star Developmental Program” shirts. I wonder where that lines up with “5 star hearts”. Friggin Butch 2.0.

    Was CGC on his way to the pool or something? He’s looking more and more like a Butch mini-me. And is that a golden bike from Pee Wee’s Big Adventure? Maybe somewhere in there the great Jambi is granting wishes. Mecca-lecca-hi mecca-hiney-ho!

    Looks like the whole thing was shot at a $1 carnival.

    For the record, I love the Waffle House and it does have its place in this world but I don’t look for one in my home buying decision. Jim Gaffigan said it best when he said the Waffle House is like a truck stop bathroom with booths and waffles.

    Not to mention, one doesn’t really gain a true appreciation for the WaHo until you are in college and looking for a place to eat at 4am. So I’m not sure how much of a draw it is for 16-18 year old kids beyond an ironic Instagram post.

    If I were looking for a weak third prong to add to my recruiting strategy along with the education and being in Atlanta, I’d focus on the name Heisman but “all the Waffle House you can eat” does sound enticing.

      GT’s Waffle House obsession has a whiff of “new husband trying way too hard to get the stepkids to like him” about it. I mean, I like The Grill and everything, but if UGA featured it this heavily in its recruiting pitch, I’d be more than a little concerned.

      Plus, it’s not like Tech is the only school in the country within minutes of a Waffle House. Crowing about your instant Waffle House access is a little like bragging about how close you are to a Starbucks, or Walgreens, or running water.


  5. From a business stand point, you take your Fech degree plus real world Waffle House experience…unlimited potential right there!

    I’m pretty sure that’s the mural inside the Waffle House location nearest to Tech’s campus. I’ve had to eat there before and it’s a little tough to stomach. But you’ll find a similar UGA-themed mural inside the downtown Athens location that’s underneath the Georgia Theater.

    Tech’s Waffle House thing is very similar to a hipster d-bag really going all in on liking bacon about five years after the viral bacon meme got played out on the internet. Neat. You like Waffle House. Everyone does.

    Yep, well said. For some reason this reminds me of when the other Texas schools used to snicker and Texas Tech/Lubbock by pointing out that they didn’t even have a Chipotle. And when Ttech finally got one, they bragged about it for months on social media. Yet what they were basically saying is that they now have something that everyone else already has, which somehow was supposed to be a differentiator for them. Really bizarre.

    Perhaps Coach Collins chose Waffle House so that he could upgrade the quality of women the recruits have had to look at while on their visit.

    I bet the nerds don’t even get them scattered, smothered, and covered!

    The number of tech related posts seems way up since they hired their new coach.

    Does Collins & staff yell “GOOD MORNING!” to every recruit as they come through the door?

    And if a recruit is unaccompanied, does he have to sit at the counter to avoid the stink-eye looks for sitting in a booth alone?

    I always get a bloody buddy on my hash browns.

    All of this Tech-Waffle House talk makes me seriously want to eat elsewhere. Waffle House better be careful aligning themselves with such a shitty loser program like Georgia Tech. This could really backfire on them in this state.


    • Trbodawg

      This was my thought also. What if all the UGa fans decided to boycott Waffle House to protest the Tech connection? Just for a day tho’, we’re not THAT crazy.

    Uncle Eddie had it wrong. Georgia Tech football is the true gift that keeps on giving, the whole year.



    Tech and Waffle House = NCAA Violation

    I need more Geoff Collins pics with recruits. I didn’t think anyone could look like more of an awkward try hard but here we are.


  17. Mayor

    The owner of Waffle House is a Tech alum and a number of upper level executives are too (his college buddies). He gives a lot of $$ toTech. So, yes it makes perfect sense.

    Are they trying to be mini mes with that stupid pic with the bicycle? Maybe the Ramblin piece of crap doesn’t run anymore and they have to ride that bike. What a joke.
