"According to the sports information staff at Tech, references to the nickname The Flats date back as early as the 1920s. Why The Flats? Because in comparison to Tech Tower, which stands upon a hill, Grant Field lays on the flat part of the Tech campus. " according to: http://www.profootballresearchers.org
