Home Field Advantage?

I recently commented a statement that playing in Doak Campbell Stadium helps us gain a victory over Ga. Tech. This led me to do some looking.

 

In the last 3 years we are 12-8 in Doak. 3 of those wins came against FCS schools (AA). So lets throw those out the window. We are 9-8. Barely over .500.

Out of those 9 wins only 6 (I believe if I counted correctly) were against teams with winning record.

Yes the wins have very direct correlation with how good the team is, but we have had a slightly better road record. Not only that our ticket sales have greatly suffered, leaving plenty of empty seats to drown out the Warchant and crys of our fight song. 

 

The days of teams being intimidated coming into Tally are over for now. Playing at home isn't much of an advantage (if it ever was.....I believe homefield is overexaggerated anyway).
