Bedford, an all-conference center at Tech the past two seasons, isn’t the only player who is using social media to express his frustration with the NCAA’s decision to strip the Yellow Jackets of the 2009 ACC championship.

Former inside linebacker Brad Jefferson posted this: Just heard they so called, “took our acc championship away,” dats funny..lol! Take something away from gladiator(ha), YEA RIGHT! All they can say is that they tried…
Former kicker Scott Blair posted this: We beat Clemson twice in 2009. We only needed to beat them once to prove we were the best in the ACC anyway.
Former linebacker Kyle Jackson has asked all Tech players to change their profile photo to a picture of their ACC championship ring.
Offensive lineman Phil Smith: They can’t strip me of my memories.
Inside linebacker Sedric Griffin: Can’t win for losing as a Techie
Wide receiver Demaryius Thomas: Swear they look for anything
