Thread: GATA

  1. #1

    Default GATA

    I have only been following Georgia Southern for the past several months so there a lot of things about the traditions of Georgia Southern that I am not familar about.

    One term that I have been seeing over and over again on this site is the term GATA. I know this term has to have some type important meaning to some Eagle fan's that I am not aware of.
    "Once and Eagle Always and Eagle"

    Get After Them Aggressively

    It comes from Coach Russell. He first coined it while the DC at uga, he then brought it down here to Statesboro.

    He also said it could mean get after their assets when he was fundraising for the program.

    Coach Russell noticed that Georgia Tech's athletic associations initials were GTAA. He rearranged the letters to come up with GATA.

    When someone would ask him what it meant he would respond 'Get after them Aggressively' with a twinkle in his eye but everyone knew what it really meant.

    Coach Russell. One of a kind. The ultimate motivator. He continues to impart his life lessons on the Georgia Southern family.

    So true. Erk was special no doubt. Before every football season, I always watch the Erk Russell College Football Miracle Worker Video. If that doesn't get you fired up, nothing will.

    Where do you get this?
    "So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservation, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future." -Jon Krakauer

    I've still got a copy of it on VHS somewhere. I wish I had it on DVD. If it's not out on DVD, then someone needs to seriously look into rectifying that situation. I still love watching that video.
