Paul Johnson transcript from Tuesday’s presser

From the fine folks in Georgia Tech’s sports information department, a transcript of Tuesday’s press conference:

Opening Statement:

“Good morning. I think the week off last week came at the right time. I was encouraged by what I saw in practice yesterday. The guys were excited to be out there after a few days off. We’re a day ahead of schedule getting ready for the game because we put a lot of work in yesterday. We’re excited to have the opportunity to play at home on Saturday night against a Georgia team that is very talented.”

On Georgia:

“I’m sure they’re going to come in here and play one of their best games. I would expect nothing less. We’re going to try and get ready to play one of our best [games]. They’ve got a lot to play for and so do we. It ought to be a good game.”

On the Georgia Tech-Georgia Rivalry:

“I know the game’s important, because it’s important to our fan base and the school and everyone else. Honestly, I get ready for this game as I get ready for any other game. I think you have to do that. I told somebody earlier that this is not the end all do all for our football program to beat Georgia. We want to win our share of games against them and it’s an in-state rivalry game and all. I understand that, but it’s not going to define our year if we beat Georgia.”

On if last season’s 45-42 win over Georgia defined Georgia Tech’s season:

“Well, last year we didn’t win the [Coastal] division and we didn’t have a chance to play for the ACC Championship. I don’t know if it defined our season last year. I know it did to some of our fans. I think you’re putting [Georgia] on a pretty high pedestal. Do you think beating Georgia Tech defines Georgia’s season? I bet if you ask them, they’d probably tell you no. It’s an important game and you don’t want to diminish that, but let’s not get carried away.”

On if beating Georgia was the team’s top goal a season ago:

“It was a goal. I don’t think we have a number one goal. It was the first one on the board. What is the third one on the list this year, finish in the top five in rushing? It was a goal because Georgia Tech had not beaten Georgia in seven years.”

On if beating Georgia a season ago gives Georgia Tech more confidence coming into this year’s game:

“I have no idea. I think our guys will be excited to play. It’s going to be a great crowd; it’s a rivalry game and a big game, so they’ll be really fired up. I don’t know if they’re going to have a celebration in the streets if we win Saturday night. We still have other fish to fry.”

On last year’s second half comeback against Georgia:

“It showed some character on our player’s part that they fought back and continued to play, but so did Georgia. They came back, as well. You’d like to see this game be very competitive and I think it probably will be for the most part. I don’t think one side is going to get to the point where they can just go away and hide from the other. I hope that’s not the case, but if it is, gosh I hope it’s us. But, I don’t see that happening. Both teams have too many good players.”

On how Georgia Tech’s fan base treats the Georgia game:

“You’re going to have fans that treat any game as a big game. Certainly, anytime you work with people everyday and you’re around them in the state, it certainly makes your life easier if your team wins. You can be the guy cracking all the jokes and doing that kind of thing. Each fan has to have their individual idea of the game. I understand it’s a big game. I’m not backing away from that, but what I’m trying to say is, it’s not going to end our season if we win or lose the game. I’m not going to let one game define my football season when I have to play 13 games. Now, if I was 0-12, I might let that one game define me, but we have other things to play for. Does that lessen the fact that we want to win the game, no. We want to win the game as much as Georgia does.”

On if the Georgia-Georgia Tech game has any effect on recruiting:

“It might have something to do with it. I think there are a lot of other factors involved. Do they want to see the programs comparable, sure. But, there’s a lot of contrasts between Georgia and Georgia Tech, far more than who wins the game. The location, majors that are offered, prestige of certain programs, there’s a lot of factors that go into it. Does that mean that Georgia is never going to beat Florida on a recruit because Florida won the game? A lot of these kids will still go to Georgia; there are a lot of other reasons that come into play.”

On if it was surprising to see how important winning the Georgia game was to Georgia Tech fans:

“I know that they were excited that we won the game. It probably wasn’t as big of a deal to me because I hadn’t been here through the losing. If I had lost to someone seven years in a row, it probably would’ve been a bigger deal. I don’t want to leave the wrong impression because I do realize that the game is important and I know for a lot of our fans that this is the game they want to win. We want to get to the point where our program is bigger than one game. That doesn’t mean that we’re going to dismiss that game and say `oh, we don’t care if we win.’ We want to win the game, but we want to do some other things that just beating Georgia won’t do for you. You have to have some consistency.

“When you get into a rivalry game, it’s like anything. Georgia has more to gain beating us then we do beating them. We’re ranked, they’re not. It’s the complete opposite of last year and it will probably go back-and-forth. In an ideal situation, both teams would be really good. I think that Georgia is a really good team. Do not underestimate the talent they have because of their record. Mark [Rich] has built a really strong program in Athens. They’ve got good football players and a good team. They haven’t had the type of year anybody expected or wanted, but that doesn’t mean they don’t have good football players and a good program. When you win so many games consistently like they’ve done, it’s hard to meet those expectations every year. You build a monster and you have to feed it. They still have a good team.”

On if the injury sustained to Georgia wide out A.J. Green will have an impact on preparation for Georgia’s offense:

“They are going to run the same offense whether A.J. Green plays or not. They’ll just put someone else in. A.J. Green might be the best receiver in the country, so not having him certainly will hurt them. But, it doesn’t change the way we are preparing for them because they will still have a good player out there. I guarantee a four or five star recruit will be out there taking his place. It’s not like they are going to cancel their offense if A.J. doesn’t play. We’re worried about Georgia Tech; we don’t approach this game any differently than any other game. I don’t know what Georgia’s going to do; they might run the wishbone or throw it every down. We’re getting ready for A.J. Green and everyone else on their roster.”

On if it is surprising that Georgia is 6-5 on the season:

“Quite honestly, I haven’t paid that much attention to them during the year, outside what everyone was saying about them on Sunday after the game. When you watch the tape, when they don’t beat themselves, they’re a very good football team. Put on the Kentucky game. They drag them up and down the field, but they killed themselves with four turnovers in the second half, just like any other team in America would. There are not many teams that could turn the ball over four times in a half and win the game. But, that doesn’t take away from the talented players they have. It’s just like anything else; maybe they don’t turn it over this week. That’s why you play the game because you never know what is going to happen.”

On if there are any concerns that the Yellow Jackets will come out rusty after a bye week:

“We’ll know on Saturday. We came out yesterday and looked pretty good, but that was against the scout team who probably isn’t going to put up as good of a fight. We’ll know on Saturday when we play. That’s my concern for us, to play as good as we can play. If we can do that, then we’ll be able to live with the result. Just go out there and do your thing. Have some confidence in what your doing and play.”

On Georgia’s defense:

“They’re big and physical inside. I think they have some NFL-caliber defensive tackles. Their linebackers run well. They have some corners that are younger, but are very talented. They have some good players. We just have to line up and execute. That’s why you play the games. Last year we had some success in that they missed some tackles and we hit some big plays. It wasn’t like we were slowing them down; they went up and down the field pretty good too.”

On concerns in kick coverage:

“It’s a concern for us every game because we know that every team we play will have someone back there that can catch it and go. You just have to be sound and do your job and hope that you can make a tackle in the open field. You can’t play scared because you’re not going to be very successful. That’s what we did last year; we went in there and played. When we got down early we didn’t say, “Oh, here we go again”. We just kept playing.”

On Josh Nesbitt’s role on the team:

“I think Josh has been a very valuable part of our football team, no question. He’s been a leader and he kind of stirs the drink that makes it go on offense. He’s been a really good player. He certainly is deserving of any kind of accolades that he gets. It’s too bad that so much of that stuff is perception. But, he’s been a valuable member of our team, there’s no doubt about that.”

CLEMSON – Dabo Swinney suggested he prayed hard for Clemson to reach next week’s ACC championship game because of what it would mean to former coach Danny Ford, who will be honored there as the program’s designated “legend” this year.

If it meant that much to Ford, imagine the significance should the 15th-ranked Tigers reach the Orange Bowl, site of the 1981 postseason triumph that secured the national championship and cemented Ford as a program icon.

On the flip side, imagine how this season’s Atlantic Division title breakthrough could lose its luster if all Clemson has to show alongside it is a berth in the Music City Bowl

I read that Sam. Swank tried out for the Falcons. I had hoped that I’d heard the last of him on that rainy day in Jacksonville.

My guess is that a kicker won’t win the ACC Champ MVP award this year.

Don’t fool yourselves, fans, I’ve watched the last 55 games of this classic series, and season records, turnovers, etc., all go by the wayside with the Jackets meet the Dawgs. As the book says, Good Old Fashion Hate rises to the surface each game, and whoever is left standing at the end of the game will have earned and deserve the win. Even with a substitute UGA, the Ramblin’ ‘Reck rides tall burning Diesel, 42-28.


November 24th, 2009
6:36 pm

Coach Paul Johnson puts things in proper perspective. We go into each game expecting to win. UGA is no different from any other game on our schedule. However, unlike past coaches, we now go into this game with the attitude that we have more to accomplish than just beating the dawgs to have a good year. Our program is transcending to a point of playing more and more important football games under this coach. The days of old are long gone.

A story on Paul Johnson’s record in rivalry games is now available for viewing on The Yellow Jackets are getting ready for their big game against Georgia on Saturday. THWG!

nice article on on CPJ,here’s one question asked:

“What do you need facility-wise to stay competitive?

I was just talking to the athletic director [Dan Radakovich], and we are in the process of seeing about getting an indoor facility. I’m encouraged. I think we have a chance of that happening. We are at a place where the weather isn’t that big of an issue, but it would be nice for lightning. And there are days when we get some heavy rains, so it would be nice to be able to have a place where we can go inside. ”

wish we could use the money meant for new bb arena on this instead.

Georgia WILL be flinging the ball, plenty, Coach Johnson – you can bet on that! You don’t know whether we can stop ‘em, and neither does anybody else. The D must really step up in this game.

BUT, when we’re on offense, how can those Dawgs even SEE the ball, when Nesbitt, at the line, is either running it up the middle himself, or handing it off to Dwyer, or pulling it back and going wide. When he goes wide, he’ll either keep, or pitch. But the point is, when the play starts, those linebackers opposite can’t see if the guy going into the line has the ball or not. And the Tech blocks look just the same on a dive or a pitch. I can’t see Georgia having enough to stop this attack. They won’t get the ball for a long time, either, unless we fumble.

CPJ talks like he is expecting to loose the game. I hope not but he knows damn well how big the interstate rivalry is in football. If not call Bill Curry he went 10-1 in 1989 but lost both the Auburn game and his job.after he took Bama to the Sugar Bowl.


November 25th, 2009

Rumor flying is that “Georgia’s only defensive game plan is to completely take Josh Nesbitt out of the game”.

I hope that is not the mantra of the Dog defense, they are better than that! No fan or Alumni wants to see a dirty game played. And I am an alum of both schools!

Hey, Blue Fox...

…”Even with a substitute UGA” – who are they substituing for the university? UGA is the school; Uga is the dog, for whom I think you meant that they may have a substitute!

But, in reality, maybe it is your senility that is showing if you have been to 55 of these games!

Coach definitely never loses any cool points, but he definitely would have scored some major points if he had said, “A.J. might be the second best receiver in the country.”

Still. I love our coach, and he could do no wrong. It is amazing how after one game last season, he became one of our great coaches, and before his second season is over he is already one of our legendary coaches. I hope he builds a voracious monster here, too. Then this game will have _real_ importance, like the old games between UF/FSU, or OSU/UM, or USC/ND. It’s our time, Georgians.

And Bill Curry was a quitter. He quit on Georgia Tech (Tech gave him the job even though he had no head coaching experience) to go to a program he could take “to the next level” got fired and Bobby Ross wins a national championship for Georgia Tech. I’m sure Bill regrets his decision but I wonder if he is ashamed of himself for quitting.

Good article and I really like Johnson’s perspective on this game. It is big but it should not define Ga. Tech’s season. This will be a tough game for Tech but I like our chances to win.

Johnson’s philosophy is so sound. He’s steady and BELIEVES in his system with every fibre of his being. Not too high, never too low. Steady.
No one ounce of Showboat in the man. He truly believes you win with preparation and confidence, NOT rah-rah emotion.
GO JACKETS !!!!!!!!

It shouldn’t be a night game this late in the season.
If it’s bitter cold the players will have to try to
play while suffering from it. Weather is a big
equalizer. Someone should have the nerve to turn
down maximum TV money when the time chosen can hurt
the game.

Virginia Tech, who did they beat ? They lost to everyone. Virginia Tech have a win over a barely ranked Miami of Florida team. But, who did Miami of Florida beat to get ranked ? Miami of Florida has zero wins. Miami of Florida did beat Georgia Tech, and lost every other game, just like Virginia Tech. There is the Climpsum Tigers, right ? Who did Climpsum Tigers beat ? No one. Not a single soul have the Climpsum Tigers beat. No one. Climpsum has a win over Miami of Florida, that’s it. Which brings us to :

Georgia Tech.

Georgia Tech beat the Climpsum Tigers, who lost every game except beat Miami of Florida. And, Georgia Tech beat Virginia Tech, who lost every game except beat Miami of Florida. 2 teams they say are teams Climpsum and Virginia Tech, but neither team beat anyone at all all season long except for 1 team Miami of Florida. And, who was it Miami of Florida beat ? No one, except Georgia Tech.

For this, the All Cupcake Conference teams are ranked. Not very impressive, which is why the ACC does not have a top-ranked team. The ACC is an automatic qualifier. You get to send 1 team to a meaningless Orange Bowl against a team who will have zero wins over any ranked team, and certainly will have zero wins over any top-ranked team, like the ACC Chumpion.

SEC has the top 2 BCS Ranked Teams. Number 1 and Number 2. The winner of The SEC Championship Game is Guaranteed of playing for the National Championship, unless Auburn beats Alabama and Alabama beats Florida. Or, unless 5-Loss worthless Florida State beats Florida and Florida then beats Alabama. Even in this scenario, the lead The SEC teams Florida and Alabama have at BCS Number 1 and BCS Number 2 is so large that they still will probably send the winner of that game, against Texas (if Texas beats Nebraska, who has beat no team in the BCS Top 39 teams.)

The Winner of The SEC Championship Game will play Texas. Texas won last night, so all they have to do to be in the National Championship Game is to beat Nebraska. Who has Nebraska beat ? Nebraska has 0 wins over any Top 25 team, and in fact, Nebraska’s best win is over Number 40 Oklahoma, who everyone beat. By the way, the only game against a Top 25 Ranked team all season long for Texas is Number 12 Oklahoma State, whom they beat. A lot better win than any win any ACC team posted all season long. Texas did not otherwise, even play a Top 25 team all season long in the down Big XII.

ACC Chumpionship Game winner ? Where are they in the discussion ? They are not in the discussion, that is where the ACC Chumpion is in this discussion.



Boise State.

TCU, Cincinnati and Boise State are all ranked ahead of the ACC Automatic Qualifier, for all these reasons.

Now, you know.

TCU beat Number 19 Climpsum Farmers at Climpsum. TCU beat Utah in a blow-out, and Utah is Number 21. TCU beat BYU in a blow-out and BYU is Number 19. Why is the Mountain West Champion ranked ahead of the ACC Chumpion ? Duh. They beat better teams, are undefeated, and beat more better ranked teams than any ACC team.

Cincinnati beat Number 16 Oregon State at Oregon State. Why is the Big East Champion ranked ahead of the ACC Chumpion ? Because they have a better win against a better team than any ACC team beat all season long, and because they are undefeated until they play Pittsburgh.

Why is Boise State ranked ahead of the ACC Chumpion ? Because Boise State beat Number 8 Oregon. This is a better win too than any ACC team has all season long. Why is the WAC Champion ranked ahead of the ACC Chumpion ? Because the WAC Champion beat a better team than any ACC team beat, and because they too are undefeated.

Thus, you have it.

1.SEC Champion is ranked way ahead of ACC Chumpion.

2.SEC runner-up is ranked way ahead of ACC Chumpion.

3.Big XII Champion is ranked way ahead of ACC Chumpion.

4.Mountain West Champion is ranked way ahead of ACC Chumpion.

5.Big East Champion is ranked way ahead of ACC Chumpion.

6.WAC Champion is ranked ahead of ACC Chumpion.

Why are 6 teams ranked ahead of the ACC Chumpion to get to play a real opponent in their bowl game ?

Because the ACC and Georgia Tech, suck.

You beat no one. You played no one. You are not considered among the elite, not the conference and not Georgia Tech.

41.Number 41 Strength of Schedule for Georgia Tech. Your Strength of Schedule actually is WORSE for playing the Climpsum Farmers than if you did not play the game at all. If Climpsum Farmers had not beat Miami of Florida (whose only win all season long over is Georgia Tech), Climpsum would have beat no one. Climpsum’s Strength of Schedule is Number 39. For this average Number 40 SoS, these 2 square off in the ACC Chumpionship Game, and you want to know why the game will have no one there, no one watching and fewer yet who care.

There is not a conference who has in their Conference Championship Game 2 teams whose average ranking in the Strength of Schedules, is Number 40.

How can you be the ACC Chumpion and have all these other teams ranked ahead of you ?

Now, you know. Right ?

I know, right ?

Average BCS Ranking of all 12 SEC teams, is Number 37.

Average BCS Ranking of all 12 ACC teams, is Number 47.

The ACC is an after thought. The ACC has no top-ranked team, and never does.

What BCS Automatic Qualifying Conference Lost to one 1-AA team ?

There is only 1 BCS Automatic Qualifying Conference who Lost 1 game to one 1-AA team. The ACC.

As a matter of fact, the ACC Lost to two (2) 1-AA teams.

No other BCS Conference Lost to ANY 1-AA team. But, the ACC Lost to not 1, but two (2) 1-AA teams.

SEC has the best winning percentage against all BCS Conferences this year, too. The ACC does not even have a winning record against the other BCS Conferences, while The SEC is 3 games over .500 against other BCS Conferences, for the best in the nation.

28-6.The SEC is 28-6 against 1-A teams this year, also the best record against other 1-A teams of all Conferences in the nation. The ACC is a miserable 17-13 against 1-A teams, compared to SEC at 28-6.

You come running in here, trying to say that Georgia Tech’s entire season of “opponents” is not bad this year, in fact is not 51-53. 51 wins and 53 losses by every team Georgia Tech plays all season long. None of your “opponents” have beat anyone. There is not 1 win by Georgia Tech nor by any of Georgia Tech’s “opponents” all season long this year, which is over a top-ranked team.

Why should the ACC Chumpion get a real Bowl Game top-ranked opponent ? You should not, obviously. And, you will not.

All Cupcake Conference.

Losing Bowl Record. ACC has a Losing Bowl Record All-Time at 83-84-2.


ACC is .497 for its Winning Percentage in Bowl Games All-Time.

ACC are a bunch of itty-bitty teeny-weenie schools, who play no one all season long, and beat no top-ranked team.

ACC has zero attendance, as always.

ACC has zero top-ranked teams, as always.

ACC Chumpionship Game got kicked out of the Gator Bowl for lousy ratings and zero attendance.

ACC now is in Tampa and you will not have good attendance and will not have good ratings for that meaningless game between 2 teams, neither of whom beat a soul.

190-49-9. SEC is the best Conference in Bowl Games, All-Time by a large margin.


SEC is .559 Winning Percentage All-Time in Bowl Games. This too, is the best among all BCS Conferences.

ACC is an afterthought.

ACC does nothing.

ACC plays no one.

ACC beats no one.

ACC loses to nobodies.

ACC plays in meaningless weenie games and weenie bowl games.

ACC plays in meaningless weenie Conference Chumpionship with no one watching, no one caring and with no one there.

Tampa ? Is there an ACC team in Tampa I have forgotten somehow ? Your ACC Conference Chumpionship Game is a nomad game, that cannot find a place where anyone will go to watch the damned game.

Georgia Tech is the worst traveling team in all of America. No one has fewer people who follow their team, and go to away games and to meaningless Chumpionship Games, and to meaningless bowl games, than Georgia Tech.

A few years back, you blew up half your stinking stadium.

You still cannot sell your “stadium” out. Do you know your record against Georgia at Grant Field ? 20-26-3. Georgia is half a dozen games ahead of Georgia Tech at your own stinking little dumpy field down there in the slums of Atlanta where all the drugs are and where all the crime is.

Which is probably why no one goes to the games.

You sell season tickets. Georgia buys them. We throw away the other cruddy games against nobodies you play, just to buy seats at your stadium and you talk about selling this many or that many season tickets. No. You do not. We buy them, not you.

4 hot dogs, 2 cokes, 2 bags of peanuts, and a parking pass. All of this you offer just to sell a ticket to watch the Georgia Tech YELLOW jackets.

And, you call your 1930 vehicle the Ramblin’ Wreck when everyone knows that is for the CHEATERS on the 1893 team, none of whom were students at Georgia Tech. Yesterday, the AJ-C ran an article about this 1893 game and how you were stoned by the UGA fans after the game, playing players who in fact you PAID TO PLAY who all 3 top players were not in fact Georgia Tech students. You huddled into a train for the ride back to Atlanta from Athens the Classic City, and ran into the back of a freight train in Lawrenceville. When the train got back to Atlanta in 1893, the headlines read : “RAMBLING WRECK MAKES IT BACK TO ATLANTA.” Now, supposedly, it is a CAR, not a train that is the Ramblin’ Wreck. You are so full of B.S.

Still, no one wants to even watch you play teams who all season long for all of Georgia Tech’s games all season long, are a sorry 51-53.

25-31-4. Georgia Tech’s Record in Atlanta against Georgia

So, to the Georgia Tech fans (both of you), I say nerds you haven’t done a damn thing. Not once has the Final AP Poll ranked Georgia Tech Number 1. Not once.

22-15-5Georgia Tech’s Bowl Record. .595 Winning Percentage.

25-16-3Georgia’s Bowl Record. .605 Winning Percentage.

Georgia Tech’s Bowl Record is NOT as good as Georgia’s.

Georgia Tech has LOST its last 4 Bowl Games in a Row.

4 Bowl Losses in a Row for Georgia Tech.

Georgia has Won 6 of our last 7 Bowl Games. They say Georgia will play on January 2nd this season in our Bowl Game. Our opponent plays a game against the team who beat you Georgia Tech, before they play us.

The ACC will only have 1 BCS Bowl Game team, and that only because the BCS Automatically Qualifies the winner of the ACC Chumpionship Game.

Only 5 Schools have more attendance per game than UGA.

Georgia Tech is Number 40 in attendance.

So, Georgia Tech is Number 41 in Strength of Schedule according to the NCAA and Number 40 in Attendance according to the NCAA. Do you notice the correlation please ?

UGA is playing for our 60th win against Georgia Tech, All-Time. Only 4 other schools ever have lost more football games against any 1 opponent, than Georgia Tech has Lost to UGA.

And, so here we are tomorrow night, after a long and grueling horrid schedule of tough opponents for Georgia, a Top 5 Strength of Schedule, playing against Georgia Tech, whose season has gone completely unnoticed by everyone because you haven’t played anyone. Tech’s season has therefore, breezed by.

Nerds. Nerds in the slums of Atlanta where all the drugs are and where all the crime is. Nerd guys, with no women, that is what Tech is. Asian men make up a huge portion of Tech’s student body. Your athletes are nothing like your regular students, who are not there on athletic scholarship. Nothing at all like the regular Tech student.

Georgia Tech’s Men’s Basketball Team is on NCAA Probation for its APR Academic Progress Rate and is therefore LIMITED TO ONLY 11 SCHOLARSHIPS at this time today. Georgia Tech Men’s Basketball APR Academic Progress Rate of only .914 in the 20th Percentile.

There are 25,467 UGA undergraduates and only 12,973 undergraduates at Georgia Tech, half as many at Tech as at UGA.

U.S. News and World Report Rankings for 2010 are Georgia Tech Number 35 and UGA Number 58, released last month as the National Universities’ Rankings for 2010. 55 percent of all those who Apply for Admission at UGA, are accepted. 61 percent of all those who apply to Georgia Tech, are accepted. Tech will take anyone. It is not exclusive any longer at Tech. UGA is more selective than Georgia Tech now. Georgia Tech is 56 percent of UGA enrollment at 19,143 students at Tech to 34,180 at UGA. Still, you are far more likely to get accepted into Georgia Tech if you apply there than you would be to apply to UGA, 6 percent more likely to be accepted into Georgia Tech than to be accepted into UGA.

2009 APR Academic Progress Rate for your FOOTBALL PLAYERS, shows UGA APR is .976 in the 90th Percentile for UGA FOOTBALL PLAYERS and shows Georgia Tech APR for your FOOTBALL PLAYERS is .957 in the 70th Percentile. May 1 2009 according to the NCAA.

Georgia Tech football players are A LOT WORSE ACADEMICALLY than the UGA football players.

BuLLdawg – I don’t have to read your long winded post to know what it says. I hope you wasted a good deal of your free time on it. GT just needs to win. Forget stats that you worship to make your arguments. Ignore you and your ilk. Win and let things take care of themselves. GT will win a MNC soon, and that will say it all. Go Jackets! POUND THE HOUNDS!! THWG!!

hey BuLLdawg – did you finish your long winded 5:01am rant in time to leave for your trash route? with my family in town, we’re generating a lot of trash (which we throw into receptacles unlike you leghumpers) and I want to make sure you make it to my house today. Thanks!

WOW! Someone is really obsessed with Tech. Maybe he wasn’t in that 61% and is still bitter about it. Don’t worry, Bullsh*t, you can still go to community college at Leghumper U. and get your turf management degree.

“Nerds. Nerds in the slums of Atlanta where all the drugs are and where all the crime is. Nerd guys, with no women, that is what Tech is. Asian men make up a huge portion of Tech’s student body. Your athletes are nothing like your regular students, who are not there on athletic scholarship. Nothing at all like the regular Tech student.”
This paragraph by bulldawg reinforces my choice in Tech. I would rather be around a bunch of asians than racist white trash.

BulLDawg, University of Georgia seems more selective because every rednieck who has ever spelled out “G-E-O-R-G-I-A” wants to enroll and get the 3-hour A that feat will give them of their transcript. U of Ga has a special file for applications filled out in crayon. They didn’t have that when you applied before the HOPE scholarship, so you got in.

GEORGIAN: I remember Bear Bryant and Paul Johnson is the “Bear” of the new Century.

BULLDAWG: I feel so sorry for you. I feel even sorrier for your team and coaching staff. The sight of tens of thousands of Bulldog fans streaming for the exits WHEN YOUR TEAM STILL HAD A CHANCE TO WIN THE GAME was truly pathetic.

Nevertheless, I hope that the Jackets beat the hell out of the Bulldogs. However, I’ll be happy if we win by 1.

I have been holding back all year because our defense and offense has played so poorly and I have refrained from making comments about our DC and OC, even though they need to go. But for us to have such an aweful season and Tech to be the class of the ACC, we sure just whipped your butts! The score was close but statistically, we drove the ball down your throats!!

I have just one question…where are Saint Simmons, RAMBLE ON, jacketfan, etc. now? You know the ones who have been on the UGA blogs all year talking crap!!!!

The worst year of Mark Richt’s tenure and the best year Tech has had since 1990 and we still beat the No.7 team in the country!!

And what about No.8’s big choke??? He’s no AJ Green for sure!!!!!

30-24 Hahahahahaha!!!!!

GO DAWGS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
