Updated to fix image load problemI watched Tennessee Tech play a game over in Alabama on Saturday. Long story. Anyway, check out the innovations on display. Click to enlarge.
Innovation 1: The Beverage Tray Visor
Is the sun too bright for you? Well, don't let that get you down. Simply take your concession stand beverage tray and flip it upside down. It makes a handy visor.
Innovation 2: The Outdoor Locker Room
In Div I-AA, they believe that locker rooms are for wussies. Why not enjoy the outdoors pre-game? Photo taken ~20 minutes before kickoff. In two weeks, this Tennessee Tech team will be in Jordan-Hare Stadium playing in front of roughly 90,000 people. Talk about culture shock.
Innovation 3: The Cowboy-Plumber-Trainer-Medic
In Div I-AA, they lack the budget to have dozens of support staff for the football program so people need to wear multiple hats (pardon the pun). Here we see the TTU Cowboy-Plumber-Trainer-Medic with a utility belt that would leave Batman, Dwayne Schneider and Curly Washburn in awe. I'm pretty sure that he has athletic tape, a screw driver, a toilet scrub brush, a six shooter and a feather duster on that belt. (Click to enlarge).
I wonder if our players...really all Div I-A players sometimes forget how nice they have it.
Note: Tennessee Tech is by far one of the worst football teams that I've seen in my life, and I've seen half dozen Citadel games back when they were truly wretched. I know from bad football. The Aubies get Tenn Tech the week before playing us, so they'll be rested and confident rolling into Athens. Oh. Joy.
