UGA owns all Tech Facilities. Last 5 games at Grant Field 5-0, and the B-Ball Dawgs won a SEC championship. Maybe we should start to call Grant Field/Bobby Dodd Stadium the new Sanford West Stadium. Do you think CPJ comments about just another game fired the DAWGS up a little? O and D lines totally dominated the interior . Jacket lines were man handled. Dwyer was held in check while Ealey and King made your defense look like a high school team. I lost count of pancake blocks after the first quarter. In all seriousness Jacket fans you gave us hell for a year and now it is time for payback. Wonder if it will be another 7 years before you can thump your chest and boast again?

Still having a great season and building a consistent top 10 program. This is not a one-shot deal. I expect 10-win seasons more often than not with CPJ.

This game will go a long way toward teaching this young team to focus and develop a killer instinct against teams they should beat.

Stephen,

I was thinking the exact same thing. Just goes to show you how worthless polls are. Humans will always follow the hype machine, and VT is consistently a good program. But when you have a head to head victory and one less loss, that ranking makes absolutely no sense. Can we please. for the love of all that is holy, get a freakin’ playoff? Just stupid.

Tech fans never show up in Athens when the Jackets are having terrible seasons. I was at every game in Athens during the 7 game win streak and GT fans were never positive about their team. This is one of the few years Tech fans actually talked up a big game prior to kickoff. And UGA definitely WON that game and Tech did not lose it for us.

Just got back from the ATL and all I can say is that during the entire weekend, I was out of sync and it seems the Jackets were too. The karma was not there for me or the Jackets. Good teams win when the karma is off. We did not.

Props to Muttland for taking Joe Cox out of the game. The decision to run the ball down our throats was indeed a stroke of genius.

Though injuries hurt all teams, it seemed every time you look up, one of our guys was getting hurt. Losing Pederson on the first series turned out to be the deciding factor. He had been playing well late in the season and his loss hurt the rotation on the line.

I remember reading in the Tech OSR, that in 1978, the only reason that Muttland won was that Eddie Lee got injured. We were not the same thereafter. Losing Nesbitt for four plays ended up costing us a touchdown and the difference in the game.

As for Paul Johnson, I think he got caught up in the magic of the moment. As we used to say back home, he got caught up in the magic of the moment. Hate to say he got outcoached, but when we still had a chance to win the game late, he got a away from what we do best. If he had just ran the ball a couple of times. It was not his best night.

I do think his option will work in the ACC and in D1 football. However, we need to get bigger and badder on defense. We need some big nasty humans on the line and especially at linebacker. Furthermore, our DBs need work. Our defense needs to complement our offense more. It didn’t last night.

All things considered, I don’t think Muttland has a better team than Tech. I do think they had a better team than Tech last night. And that is why we don’t have scoreboard.

It is written, there is a thin line between rest and rust. We looked like we lost our edge because of the off week. Furthermore, Muttland was looking for redemption and found it.

I think Coach Johnson learned something last night. Our #1 priority every year is to beat Muttland. And though they will never admit it, Muttland’s #1 priority is beating Tech, especially in years when they don’t beat Florida. Winning the ACC CG is a consolation prize. I know that is not politically correct to say, but it is the truth.

One final note, in the ATL airport on the way back, some folks in one of the eateries on the A Concourse confirmed that Muttland has the most obnoxious fans in the world. I was coming out of the game last night and had to exercise a strong measure of self-discipline and control. The only difference between Tech fans and Muttland fans is to the degree each fan base lives vicarioulsly through its teams. Some just wear it better than others.

As the old spiritual says, I am so glad, trouble does not last always.

Deal!!!

Wow grinch u have more time on your hands than money the bank huh? If i had to bet on last nights game, id bet on ga heads up. Why? because WM is already a goner, and if Tech beat Ga again, all of u rednex would be calling for Richts head on a platter. Lets face it, the ACC pretty much bitched out yesterday, and IMO, Tech and Ga is as much of a rivalry as Ga and Fla, until Tech places athletics ahead of academics, this will always be the case. And ,thats not going to happen. Ga’s football players have the lowest grad rate in the conference with the lowest grad rate, and are still owned by Fla and Tenn. So, kudos to Tech for doing so much with so little, and whatever to Ga for doing so little with so much. Im a Tech fan because it is a great institution which i only had enough smarts to drop out of after one year, still, I love Ga Tech!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I am happy that UGA fans will have something to crow about for another year, after their rotten season. Will Willy Martinez get a reprieve now? I can only dream.

Funny, though, with 2 minutes left, CPJ had enough confidence in his team that he took 3 chances for home runs, then called the right play to get a first down, only problem was Thomas dropped it.

Despite losing 3 turnovers, and a QB for a quarter, and a key defensive player, Tech was still in it at the end. Georgia deserved the win, they clearly wanted the victory more in the first half, and took advantage of Tech’s D. And, Georgia finally played to their talent level.

There’s no doubt that UGA has plenty of talent.

For you UGA fans, I know you’re all happy to have salvaged your season and have another year of in-state bragging rights. In case you haven’t looked over the years, that’s not really a new situation to us Tech fans. I gladly take it from the UGA graduates, as they have earned the right to crow. As for the rest of you, you’re pretty much bandwagon jumpers, so, whatever.

Congrats, and hope you get a decent bowl game.

As for the ACC, agreed, pretty much a stinkfest this weekend. But, the conference is improving – VT will always be good, Miami is coming back, Clemson, Tech, and UNC are all building solid programs. Maybe if FSU can get rid of Bowden, even they can come back.

Jeff Sagarin BCS Poll has ranked UGA Number 17.

Kenneth Massey BCS Poll has ranked UGA Number 18.

USA Today Coaches’ Poll has ranked UGA Number 33.

Anderson – Hester Seattle Times Poll has ranked UGA Number 24.

BCS Poll has ranked UGA Number 28.

BCS Computer Polls have ranked UGA Number 24.

There are now no ACC teams ranked in the AP Poll nor Coaches’ Poll Top 10. Georgia Tech is no longer the top-ranked ACC team; Virginia Tech is Number 11 in both the Coaches’ Poll and AP Poll.

Clemson dropped out of the USA Today Coaches’ Poll Top 25.

SEC has Florida Number 1 in both Coaches’ and AP Polls. AP Poll has Alabama Number 2, and USA Today Coaches’ Poll has Alabama Number 3.

BCS has Florida Alabama Number 1 and Number 2.

UGA is projected for $5.6 million dollar Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl against the top-ranked ACC team

Virginia Tech, again pitting the top non-BCS ACC team against the 5th best SEC team.

Tennessee is projected for $3 million dollar Outback Bowl in Tampa against Wisconsin.

Nebraska who has not played any team in the BCS Top 33 except for 1 Loss to Number 11 Virginia Tech plays Texas to see if the BCS would pit Alabama Florida for both The SEC Championship Game and the BCS National Championship Game. A Nebraska win could bring that game up for the 1st time pitting 2 teams from the same conference in the BCS National Championship Game. Root for Nebraska, but they haven’t beat any team in the BCS Top 33.

Tennessee is Number 46 in the BCS Poll (UGA Number 28.) Tennessee beat no team in the BCS Top 25, no team in the USA Today Coaches’ Poll Top 25 and no team in the AP Poll Top 25.

ACC is 9-11 against BCS conferences.

SEC is 10-4 against BCS Conferences.

SEC 10-4 is by far the best of any conference against BCS Conferences, as no Conference has more wins against BCS Conferences and no Conference is close to the SEC Winning Percentage against BCS Conferences.

SEC is 31-6 against all 1-A teams. This, too, is by far the best of all conferences.

No BCS Conference team lost to any 1-AA team, except the ACC who Lost not once but twice to 1-AA teams.

SEC out of conference is 42-6 by far the best in the nation of all conferences.

ACC does not have a winning record against The SEC, The Big XII, the Big Ten (11), nor the PAC-10.

ACC is 2-5 against SEC this season so far.

There are only 2 conferences with top-ranked teams, The SEC with the Top 2 and the Big XII with 1 of the Top 3. After that, all the weenie conferences are ahead of every ACC team, every PAC-10 team, and every Big Ten (11) team.

TCU, Cincinnati, and Boise State are all 3 ranked ahead in every poll of every ACC team, every PAC-10 team, and ahead of every Big Ten (11) team.

ACC does not even have a Top 10 ranked team, again. None.

The same as it is every year.

Average BCS Ranking of every team in every conference shows SEC Number 37, Big East Number 40, PAC-10 Number 41, ACC Number 48, Big Ten (11) Number 50 and the Big XII dragging up the rear at Average BCS Ranking of Number 51.

Big XII is really really really really bad.

Notre Dame is 6-6 against a soft soft soft schedule. Notre Dame beat no Top 25 team in any poll. Just imagine losing to BCS Ranked Number 83 Michigan. Notre Dame’s best win is over BCS Ranked Number 56 team, Nevada for God’s sake.

TCU played a really soft schedule. They will obviously lose if they play any reasonable opponent.
Oregon. Thank Oregon of the PAC-10 for Losing to Boise State for why Boise State will take away the BCS at large big from the ACC.

UGA SoS is Number 6 in the nation with the win over Number 12 Georgia Tech.

Tennessee vols SoS is Number 44 in the nation with the win over Number 28 UGA.

Georgia Tech SoS is Number 48 in the nation with the win over Number 11 Virginia Tech; yet Virginia Tech is ranked AHEAD of Georgia Tech in both the USA Today Coaches’ Poll and ahead of Georgia Tech in the AP Poll.

4th best SEC team is UGA in the BCS Rankings at Number 28.

4 SEC East teams are 7-5 tied for 2nd in the SEC East behind Florida. 2 of those have a losing record in The SEC Kentucky and South Carolina. South Carolina is ranked way ahead of Tennessee vols at Number 31 in the USA Today Coaches’ Poll which the vols are not in, and Number 35 for South Carolina in the BCS Poll. Tennessee vols are Number 46 in the BCS Poll because the vols beat no team ranked in the Top 25 of the polls. South Carolina beat no team in the Top 25 of the polls either, but South Carolina has far better wins than Tennessee vols with South Carolina’s win over Ole Miss and win over Climpsum Farmers to ruin the ACC Chumpionship Game with UGA’s major assistance dropping Number 12 Georgia Tech from any discussion of anything this morning.

SEC Rankings 2009 :

1.Florida 12-0. BCS # 1.

2.Alabama 12-0. BCS # 2.

3.LSU 9-3 BCS Number 13.

4.UGA 7-5 vs # 6 SoS and BCS # 28.

5.Arkansas 7-5 BCS # 30.

6.Ole Miss 8-4 vs # 59 SoS BCS # 33.

7.South Carolina 7-5 BCS # 35.

8.Mississipppi State 5-7 vs. # 1 SoS and BCS Number 44.

9.Tennessee vols 7-5 vs # 44 SoS and BCS Number 46.

10.Auburn 7-5 BCS # 48.

11.Kentucky 7-5 BCS # 51.

Ole Miss could get a better bowl bid than UGA at 8-4, but when you see SoS # 59 for Ole Miss and # 6 for UGA at 7-5, the nod goes to UGA.

UGA gets the 4th Bowl bid in The SEC. Clearly.

Every AJ-C sportswriter picked Georgia Tech. I picked GA to beat Tech and South Carolina to beat Clemson, relegating the ACC Chumpionship Game to nothingness.

I remember Mark Bradley asking the question where would Tech finish in the SEC. I also remember all the Tech fans saying they would be in the top 3, their only competition being Florida and Alabama. Well the top 2 teams in the ACC both just lost to middle of the pack SEC teams. I don’t think they would fair very well if they had to complete an entire season in the SEC. As bad as Georgia’s defense has been this year, the triple option didn’t seem to get the job done. The real championship game will be like it is most years, decided in the SEC Championship game…..

I have a confession to make: I’m a grown man with a family and a house and a job and yet I found myself crying like a child on Saturday night. I went to our upstairs bathroom, so that my children and wife could not hear my sobbing – I didn’t realize how hard this loss would be on me until it happened.
I really thought this year would be different.
Instead we were dominated at the line of scrimmage and embarrassed in our own stadium… yet again.
I am a proud Tech graduate and supporter – even after receiving a post-grad degree from the University of Georgia – and I’ll continue being a proud supporter of this school. But we need better results – UGA consistently out-recruits us in the off season and out-plays us during the season. I’m tired of rooting for the second best school in my own state.
ACC Championship games are great, but how does it look when the teams who are in those games constantly lose to their SEC opponents, much less teams that are not eligible for their conference’s championship game??
Good luck in Tampa.

Will Goodman, feelin you pain man, but lets face it, the SEC football factories will always get the top recruits. UGA already has double the commitments than does GT. I read in SI magazine, which by the way is a good read, that even Nesbitt said had he known about this option offense, he would not have came to GT. I personally think that CPJ can put together a BCS worthy team, he has succeeded everywhere he has run this style, but to compete with the top SEC pro style offenses out there, I just dont think so. The most weighing factor in choice of college football scholarships for outstanding athletes is to get the attention of pro football recruiters, I cant think of a better way to do that than to commit to a program that places athletics before academics and doesnt require you to be very bright. GT is a program that demands higher education, and the reality is because of that, they have few to pick from when it comes to recruiting. Im not saying athletes are by no means dumb, but not many are that good at calculus, and neither am i. So bottom line is, the SEC will continue to be the big football schools, and GT will beat UGA every once in a while.
