Will the flags still fly?

I am reading the story in today's paper by Matt Yogas about what to do with the six 1AA (FCS) Football National Championship Flags now that GSU will be playing BCS level football. Just a thought on the subject.

Leave them flying on the pole where they are now as a tribute to all the players, coaches, students, and fans that were part of that great era. What those teams accomplished was truly remarkable. Six championships including the first 15-0 undefeated season in college football history, and Erk's final championship in 1989, of the three he won, deserves recognition equal to the accomplishments. Place a new flag pole on the home side of the end zone for new banners won.

If that is not what the powers to be want, than consider this. Place a flag pole behind the statue of Erk in the plaza area where the six flags can fly.

Just a thought from a fan. GO EAGLES!

Ironside, we agree on something! Keep them up. They are a symbol of hard work and success. The move up does not take away from those accomplishments.

Ironside and Bryant agree!!

In other breaking news, President Obama and Speaker of the House John Boehner agree to solve all the world's problems within a reasonable budget as N Korea announces lasting peace and nuclear disarmament.....

Oh yeah, I also agree..... Yes! By all means, KEEP THOS CHAMPIONSHIP FLAGS FLYING!!

I suspect they will remain but in a less prominent spot over time.

Yes keep them flying; no need to be ashamed of our past just because we are now playing with the big boys.

Absolutely they should stay put!
they are part of how we got from there to here and an important part of our history on that field.
totally agree. :-)
