Tech RHP Zach Von Tersch (6-2, 5.47 ERA) will face RHP Cecil Tanner (3-1, 4.15 ERA).

Von Tersch’s last start came on May 2 against Presbyterian. He went five innings, giving up six hits, six runs (three earned), three walks and three strikeouts.

Tanner’s last appearance came in relief in last weekend’s series against Vanderbilt. He pitched two innings, with one walk and two strikeouts.

Georgia opens scoring in the first with an RBI single by Lyle Allen.

Few more Dogs fans here than Tech fans, but its fairly close.

Tech Sucks!

Way to speak it to him “NCDawg.” Tech is the worst team ever in any college sport to exsist!

UGA has 35 recognized NCAA titles, Tech has 1

UGA vs Tech in Football:

UGA leads the series 59-38-5. We’ve won 7 straight, 14 of 17 and an amazing 23 of the last 30.

We also boast more wins, Bowl wins, Bowl games, conference titles, winning season, 10+ win seasons, Top 25 Finishes, All-Americans, Heisman Winners, College Football Hall of Famers, NFL players, NFL MVPs, Super Bowl MVPs and a higher win %.

UGA vs GT in Baseball:

UGA leads the series 194-147-2. UGA has won a World Series Title, Tech hasn’t. UGA has been to the CWS 6 times, Tech has been 3 times. We have also eliminated Tech from the Tournament 3 times this decade in 2001, 2004 and 2008.

UGA vs GT in Women’s Basketball:

UGA leads the series 28-2. UGA has been to the NCAA tournament 25 times, Tech only 4. UGA has been to the Final Four 5 times, Tech none.

UGA vs GT in Women’s Softball:

UGA leads the series 15-7.

UGA vs GT in Men’s Tennis:

UGA has won 23 straight and 48 of the last 49.

UGA vs GT in Women’s Tennis:

UGA leads the series 15-2.

UGA vs GT in Women’s Volleyball:

UGA leads the series 21-9

UGA vs GT in Men’s Swimming:

UGA leads the series 54-21.

UGA vs GT in Men’s Basketball:

I put this one last because GT boasts about their great B-Ball program. However they only lead the series 100-84 and we have won 6 of the last 9 vs them. Also, for a supposed B-Ball powerhouse, they have only been to the NCAA tournament 15 times with 2 Final Four appearances and NO TITLES. UGA is not that far behind, we have been to 10 NCAA tournaments and 1 Final Four.

HAHA! GO DAWGS!!!

To hell with georgia. Proud to be a tech alumni and fan! No matter how many stats u put up. There is a heritage and pride at tech that uga can never match. Anyone can be a uga fan and in fact it seems like nearly everyone in this state is for no other reason other than because they vote like there friends vote. That’s weak. Proud to be a Tech fan!

Nerds,
Please explain to me what a “100% win streak” means? That makes absolutely no sense

nerds helper

May 12th, 2009
10:29 pm

you divide the number of wins by the number of games in the streak and multiply by 100.. soo… 1/1 = 100%… i realize you never went to school but hopefully that helps

Nerds

Well nerds helper. Lets start by defining “streak.” Straight from Webster’s Dictionary, “An UNINTERRUPTED series.” Therefore, it would not be a streak if it was not 100%, the 100% theme is implied in streak. Good try though NERDS!!!

you didnt go to school but at least you know how to quote the dictionary… thanks for clarifying that someone IMPLIED 100% in streak… from where you so cleverly quoted, the first definition is actually a run or spell.. so in the last 1 game RUN.. Tech has a 100% winning percentage… are you disputing that or just re-enforcing it?

I am saying that you are an idiot. A 100% win streak means nothing to anyone, it only means that they won the last game played. Nobody quotes streaks in terms of percentages. i.e. UGA beat Tech 7 years in a row. Who says that have a 100% streak, that means nothing. NERDS, NERDS, NERDS

Hey “nerds helper” does that mean we have a 100% win streak in baseball now?

Nerds

May 12th, 2009
10:56 pm

Well if you also look up there, I did not ask about how percentages work. I asked “What a 100% streak means” and I still have no idea what it means. As I explained before any streak is a consecutive series of events, obviously it is 100%. You Tech fans are among the most delusional people in America when it comes to sports and just life in general.

Tech won or tied the series for 14 straight years, from 1987 through 2000. And I believe we won the season series in 2002, a year we eliminated you from the post season. I understand your excitement for tonight’s win since it is the first one in a major sport this year. I’ll take a win in FB, a win in BB, and a split in baseball any time. That’s what happened THIS year.
