Miami, Ft. Lauderdale or Plantation?!? Who cares. It’s Florida and it’s warm

Woohoo! It’s 75 degrees outside, about 35 higher than in Douglasville at 1:30 Wednesday when I left.

Even better than the warmth……Cuban food. I loves me some Cuban food.

But, I digress.

There are lots and lots of interesting storylines to watch for in the upcoming Orange Bowl.

Here’s a few I’m most interested in, and would be interested to hear your t houghts on the subject, as well:

  • Iowa’s large, tough defensive line, against Tech’s smaller, quicker, and tough, offensive line.
  • How will Tech’s offense fare after a month off? Running offenses are generally characterized as physical and tough. Tech’s is both, but it also relies on timing. Will the timing be there after so many days off?
  • Any hangover from the last trip to Miami earlier this season? I doubt it. I don’t really see a connection between a site and a result, but as I’ve often said, what do I know?
  • How has Tech’s defense improved in its past 10+ practices?
  • For a team that hasn’t appeared in one of the “Big Four” bowls in 40-plus years, what could this mean to the future of the Jackets’ program?
  • How many Tech fans will be here? In my unofficial count, there were three Iowa fans on the plane down. No Tech fans. By fans, I mean someone who is wearing identifiable team gear. And, keep in mind, that is a highly scientific standard that can withstand all but the most intense scrutiny.
  • And, I doubt there will be an answer to this question, but could this be the last game for more than one Tech junior?

Here’s a great read about an Iowa fan. Beware, it might get dusty whereever you read this: http://bit.ly/8aPRPV

If you are wondering about the title of the thread, the Orange Bowl has a Miami dateline, but its actually on the outskirts of Ft. Lauderdale. And I am staying in Plantation.

Our offense will trump their defense and our mediocre defense will stifle their mediocre offense. But anything can happen any given Thursday…

I don’t know what all my fans in dawg nation are talking about……but me being an intelligent coach and person there’s no argument about this……I’d take Tech’s 4 shinny National Championships any day over that silly one-on-one record between UGA and Tech…..just plain common sense I tell ya!

Ga Tech Old Timer

Welcome to our part of the south – Doug. We live in Daytona Beach and, as season ticket holders, obviously have driven up to Atlanta for all the games. Here’s hoping that those TECH fans living in Atlanta and elsewhere in Georgia will come down to joins us in Miami Tuesday PM. Now for some thoughts:
Quick and tough always beats tough and slow.
Tech’s timing will be spot on because CPJ understands the significance of the prestige of the BCS Orange bowl and what a win will do for our program – unlike last year when the Peach bowl was anti-climatic to the win over UGA.
No hangover from the first trip down here to play Miami. In fact there will probably be some extra added incentive for the Jackets to play well in Miami just to prove a point to themselves.
The defense is still questionable until proven otherwise – and maybe they will – hopefully!
The future of the program hinges on doing two things consistently: 1) Beating UGA and 2) winning the ACC championship. Accomplish those two things and the program will be well on it’s way to national prominence again.
Lastly, as much as I don’t want anyone to leave the program now that we’ve finally got something good going on – I don’t worry about anyone leaving – period. As much as some of these guys mean to this team, everyone is replaceable. Don’t loose sight of the fact that CPJ has molded this team from player he did not recruit and made it work to every Tech fan’s delight. Why should you expect anything different from year to year when guys step out to take advantage of opportunities in the NFL? CPJ will find some one else to fill the gap and the program will go on. While it’s true the players you allude to are very special and led this program to where it is today – do not look for a total collapse when they are gone. We have a wealth of talent waiting for CPJ to mold into the next championship team.

That’s a major difference this time. NO BASEBALL INFIELD to inhibit footing for the run. That killed us last time out. It slows a run offense. Just ask the Miami Dolphins. R Williams complains about it all the time (in between tokes of the pipe).

GT will probably struggle in the first half until the timing comes back and CPJ is able to adjust to Iowa’s game plan. I just hope that CPJ doesn’t come up with a “cute” game plan. Stick to what go you here! Lots of Nesbitt, Dwyer, Jones, and then the home run to Bey Bey.

Doug – I’m already 2 hours south of you in the Keys, so I’ll be there on the 5th in my club seat for the game with my Tech items on. By the way, the game is actually played at Dolphin Stadium/Joe Robbie Stadium (not calling it Landshark, because it expires soon, at least before the Pro Bowl). And by the way, it is not located in Ft. Lauderdale, it is actually, Miami Gardens, which is a Miami suburban city located in Miami-Dade County, Florida.

Welcome to South Florida! Tech wins Jan 5 too!

Doug, do you know what color jersey Iowa will wear and do they get first pick? I got a feeling they will pull a WAKE ..and being that the colors are similar, I hope not.

I am leaving for Miami on Saturday. I bought my ticket via Ticketmaster so that I could get a lower level seat. I live outside of Charlotte and ready to get out of this cold.

I am concerned about the timing on offense what with the long layoff and all. Our defense is swiss cheese, and our only chance is that we out score them. Hope the O-line is fed some gun powder and onions for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Lastly, CPJ better take a close look at what happened to Leach and that fat boy at Kansas, my son is a Junior at Tech and knows several of the players on the team. CPJ is old school and he needs to take a look around.

Awwww, poor wittle Techie. Are we ruining your little Orange Bowl party big guy? Go tell mommy those big fat meanie Georgia fans are picking on you again.

By the way, what exactly is so intelligent about claiming you’re better than a team that beat you on a football field? Why do we even play the games genius? We can just have Techies tell us who is the best team. No need for games.
No need for 30-24 or 8 outta 9. Tech has the better program. Anybody that takes Calculus knows that. Duh.

LOL @ you idiots. Good luck “carrying the flag for the ACC” in the Orange Bowl. We’ll give it to you when the rest of the conferences are done wiping their butt with in the bowl games. ACC is a joke.

30-24.

Doug: Thanks for the update. Looks like the gameday high will only be about 65, and the low around 50. So, enjoy the 70’s while you have them!! The greatest GT fan and I will be heading down on Monday decked out with GT stuff everywhere.

I think the players (and I know for sure PJ) are very determined to not let happen what happened last year in our bowl game. Although, I believe Iowa will show up and compete hard, I definitely think we will be determined like we were against VPI and in the ACCCG. Regarding your question about our defense improving over the last 10+ practices: The answer to that would be “no” in my opinion. I have seen nothing this year to make me believe that our DC has improved our overall defensive performance. I am hoping that Iowa’s lack of an explosive offense will allow our defense to look more like it did against UNC and UVA this year, and that our offense controls the time of possession as usual. If we have a solid showing on national TV in a BCS bowl, it will make future success even more likely during the PJ era at GT.

Go Jackets! Beat the HawkEyes!!

Doug Roberson, sir :

Other than a Cuban sandwich, what you have is goulash. God Awful Goulash. That and a lot of bread. Sorry, but I do not share, and neither does anyone else that what you report about food in Miami is that it is inedible and there aren’t any places to be found that are edible.

HOW CAN YOU LEAVE OFF HOW UNSAFE YOU FEEL THERE ?

Guess you get used to that in the slums of Atlanta where all our CRIME is and where ALL OUR DRUGS are, surrounding the Tech campus. They tried to gentrify the neighborhood, but those businesses are now closing. Major landmark anchor businesses for those business-shopping districts in the slums of a city of 6 million – such as Publix who is closing this week.

238 lbs. Left Tackle for GA tek, yeah, that’s small, and as for how tough he is, pardon me, Paul Johnson YANKED HIM for the last 4 plays of the game when he SCRAPPED his high school offense and threw 4 incomplete passes instead to END THE GAME 24-30.

If you want a STORY LINE for THIS game NO ONE WILL WATCH and NO ONE WILL ATTEND, especially NOT any of THESE GA tek fans in here posting to this biased blog of feel good about a team who played SIX GAMES against OPPONENTS who are NOT even in a damn bowl game – here you go : Iowa beat 1 team all season long and that team beat NO TEAM RANKED IN THE FINAL BCS TOP 34 TEAMS (Pennsylvania State.)

GA tek beat 1 team all season long too.

So, there you have it.

Iowa who beat 1 team (who beat no team in the BCS Final Top 34 teams) plays Georgia tek who played 6 games against teams who are NOT EVEN IN A DAMN BOWL GAME and GA tek also ONLY BEAT 1 TEAM ALL SEASON LONG.

Here those 2 are facing off against each other in crime-ridden, horrible food horrible restaurants of no choices but Goulash to eat with lots of bread – which is all they eat –Miami.

WORST TV RATING Orange Bowl.

WORST ATTENDANCE Orange Bowl.

And, you are what ?

Stuck for a story line.

Just be honest Doug Roberson, sir.

Tell the truth. Quit with the GA tek bias.

AJ-C doesn’t provide that bias for UGA in our blog, Bubba.

Not close.

TIMING ?

Timing was surely NOT THERE to have Paul Johnson scrap his high school offense and THROW 4 PASSES to END THE GAME.

4 passes that looked like WOUNDED DUCKS…

Yet, on that point in here Doug Roberson, sir, you sit there and “REPORT” that “Quarterback” Josh Nesbit is a “HEISMAN HOPEFUL.”

Right.

With his 38 games played and only 13 touchdown passes to 11 interceptions and another 23 fumbles.

Pre-Game, you were in here GUSHING as you are now about GA tek, Doug Roberson biased AJ-C reporter.

After the game, you tried to deflect that what you said pre-game DID NOT HAPPEN.

If you want to talk about Iowa GA tek, why not report that GA tek FIRED JON TENUTA and that Paul Johnson replaced JON TENUTA with the linebackers’ coach at So Miss as Paul Johnson’s DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR…

…and that UGA took the football and crammed it right down GA tek’s throat.

Right up the gut.

Every play.

That tech was NOT TOUGH,

Now, were they Doug Roberson, sir ?

40 years plus ?

Huh ?

1966 season. This is 2009.

That, Doug Roberson, is

43 years.

43 years since GA tek has even BEEN to a Major Bowl Game.

1955.

54 years since GA tek last won a Major Bowl Game.

How old are you Doug Roberson ?

I was alive in 1955.

1955.

God Almighty Above is all I can say and it begs the damn question if you are going to bring up GA tek’s Major Bowl DROUGHT of 54 years since GA tek won a Major Bowl Game, then (1) call them the Major Bowls and (2) say it’s been 54 years since GA tek last won a Major Bowl Game the 1955 season; and (3) say why haven’t any GA tek fans showed up for their 1st chance at a Major Bowl Victory in 54 years ?

Huh ?

Why not ?

Where are the so-called GA tek fans you supposedly address yourself too Doug Roberson, sir ?

1-3.ACC is 1-3 in bowl games.

UGA has been to 8 Major Bowls since GA tek LAST EVEN WENT TO ONE.

By the way, if you are going to discuss BOWL GAMES Doug Roberson :

7 of GA tek’s last 10 bowl games, GA tek has LOST.

GA tek has been to 13 straight consecutive bowl games now with this game, but is a miserable 5-7.

LOSING BOWL RECORD over this span bragged about of GA tek having been to a Bowl Game 13 consecutive years.

UGA has been to a Bowl Game 13 Consecutive Years too, and UGA is :

NOT 5-7 like GA tek last 13 consecutive bowls now, but 2 LOSSES.

13 consecutive bowl games, 11-2, UGA.

13 consecutive bowl games, 5-7, GA tek.

Now, that’s just me Doug Roberson.

What do I know about college football and try to report an unbiased retort to a soul-searching on your part Doug Roberson AJ-C beat writer for GA tek for a damn story line where you discuss bowl games but fail to mention that GA tek doesn’t even have a single not 1 player on the GA tek team who has EVER WON A BOWL GAME in his entire career at GA tek.

13 consecutive bowl games for GA tek, INDEED.

Just be honest.

Not a homer.

-0- tech fans. That’s an honest report.

Will be -0- at the game too. Why not report that the facts are that GA tek cannot give away 2 free hotdogs, 4 free Coca-Colas, 2 bags of boiled peanuts and a free parking pass to get a single GA tek fan to buy a ticket to 1 game for your so-called GA tek fans you address yourself to in such a biased fashion daily Doug Roberson.

48.

# 48 in the nation attendance GA tek.

THOSE ARE ALL UGA FANS.

We buy season tickets for the GA tek football and throw away all the tickets but our game.

We own GA tek at Bobby Dodd Stadium (named after a University of Tennessee at Knoxville college DROP-OUT.)

The AJ-C reports that there are 29,700 GA tek alumni in the readership of the AJ-C.

And, there are of course a third of a million UGA alumni by direct comparison in your readership.

5.

Only 5 teams have more ATTENDANCE than UGA.

GA tek # 48 in Attendance.

No GA tek fan on the plane down ?

Duh….

Easy to spot the GA tek fans.

Slide rule hanging out their pants, pocket protector in their pocket and YELLOW wearing YELLOW.

Which of course, is the color of cowards.

Cowards who LOG ON as for example St. Simons pre-game and BRAG of the DESTROY UGA, but after the game, has YET to EVEN LOG IN as St. Simons, despite repeated attempts by me to call St. Simons out to have a pair and face the medicine.

Oh, he replied with a different handle that he didn’t think that 30-24 was DESTROYING of GA tek by UGA.

Less than a TD.

But, it was not I, nor any of the rest of us who come in here daily to call out 1 St. Simons to log in as St. Simons as he did for all this time and keep that just 1 handle.

And, take his medicine.

DISH IT OUT, can’t take it.

Of course, GA tek fans try to tell me it’s old gold.

YELLOWjackets.

Lived here all my life.

Dunwoody.

I do believe I know what color a damn YELLOWjacket is.

Like you guys trying to pass off a 1930 automobile for the AJ-C headlines of 1893 that a train wrecked outside of Lawrenceville with the cheaters from GA tek onboard stoned by UGA fans who recognized that THOSE WERE NOT GA tek students playing against us, but football players you HIRED FOR MONEY to play us.

RAMBLIN’ WRECK RETURNS TO ATLANTA, the headlines read with picture of WRECKED TRAIN.

Not Automobile from 30 years later.

By the way, Doug Roberson, I have looked up the draft projections and I cannot find a GA tek player on any NFL draft site mock draft.

GA tek has 25 NFL players today.

UGA 45.

UGA will have MORE DRAFTED again.

We had yet another UGA player drafted # 1 in the NFL Draft 1st overall pick, just last season.

GA tek NEVER HAS.

GA tek never has ANY HEISMAN TROPHY either, but you fail to report that.

As you FAIL TO REPORT Doug Roberson that GA tek is on ACADEMIC PROBATION in NCAA APR with 914 in men’s basketball.

How can that be Doug Roberson that you have NOT MENTIONED THAT 1 TIME ?

This is CURRENT NEWS Doug Roberson. Today. Now. PROBATION GA tek by NCAA.

Today.

NCAA Academic Progress Rate GA tek Men’s Basketball PROBATION with LOST SCHOLARSHIPS AS PENALTY for PROBATION of limited to ONLY 11 SCHOLARSHIPS.

Did they decide they are even going to show this game on TV ? I never saw the AJ-C report on THAT, either. I heard FOX was not going to be available in MANY MARKETS, in fact I heard that includes this AREA.

Not that you can open the 1-horse newspaper town trying to coddle GA tek fans (both of them) sports pages and find a hard hitting truthful story line on GA tek.

Where is your retraction Doug Roberson for what you REPORTED in THIS blog about what you guaranteed would happen before GA Tek LOST it’s 60th game to UGA in football, a feat only 4 other 1-A programs have accomplished.

Let me know when you are going to FACE THE MUSIC and quit sitting there squirming in your chair hiding behind your keyboard UNABLE to login and say under the handle you said GA tek would “DESTROY UGA” that GA tek LOST.

Doug Roberson, You know there is 1 more unfinished business item to address to your biased reporting for GA tek in the AJ-C, sir, and that is that GA tek’s fans are the WORST POOR SPORTS in all of sports. Imagine coming in here with the EXCUSES they came in here with after what they said pre-game about “DESTROYING UGA.”

There is a long TRADITION of POOR SPORTS at GA tek. Forever. From the beginning. No time off. Continuous. Everlasting.

60.

8 of 9 for Coach Richt.

30-24. (I didn’t know a 6-point LOSS is “DESTROYING UGA” Doug Roberson and both GA tek fans, and St. Simons.)

Craig James was not the running back in the Southwest Conference SMU Mustangs, as that was Eric Dickerson, as we all know.

Craig James was part of the team that gave SMU the death penalty, the only school actually ever, for paying monies to their players to play college football.

The evidence was so overwhelming, but of course the NCAA keeps all that private. One day, all this will become Public Record. It’s just a matter of time.

Why should it be private ?

Just yesterday UGA got it thrown out of Court, that Decory Bryant should be paid his rightful $500,0000 for NEGLIGENCE of the highest order by UGA football operations. The reason ? Public State Government employee.

We have Sunshine Laws in this Sovereign State of Georgia.

Open Public Records.

Trust me we shall all know who took cash monies to play football for death penalty SMU.

After this checkered past in at SMU, Craig James was NOT DRAFTED by the NFL.

NFL great ?

I know not.

I was there.

No one ever heard of the guy.

He played in ONE (1) Super Bowl. He gained 1 yard in total.

You’ll have to interview Craig James Colin Cowherd to find out if Craig James was the starter on that Super Bowl team he claims to have been on.

I certainly never heard of the guy.

Craig James WAS drafted by the Washington Federals of the USFL.

The records Herschel Walker SET AT THAT TIME Craig James was in the USFL, don’t count.

What Craig James did in comparison to Herschel Walker who NEVER has been discussed in the same sentence with any damn DEATH PENALTY or taking cash to play college football, in the USFL is Craig James couldn’t hold Herschel Walker’s jockstrap.

How a man who is handed the football 5 times in the Super Bowl and gains a NET 1 yard, for 7 inches per carry in the Super Bowl, gets the job of ESPN spokesman, is beyond me.

But, Craig James has been SUSPENDED for his involvement in this controversial one-sided ESPN viewpoint of a shed or not a shed, as only he asserts.

Not even Adam asserts that, himself.

Craig James following his SUSPENSION from broadcasting the Alamo Bowl with Mike Patrick.

Truth be told, all the ESPN college football broadcast team and ALL THEIR TACTICS, have been under Federal Scrutiny Multitudes of times, and will continue to be – especially this controversial Craig James.

For Example :

Craig James said in 1998 that the Big 10 Wisconsin Badgers were “the worst team to ever play in the Rose Bowl.”

Wisconsin went on to defeat #6 UCLA 38–31 in the 1999 Rose Bowl. Afterward, Badger coach Barry Alvarez fired back :

“Well, I know we’re at least the second worst.”

This is the kind of crap we get out ESPN daily in college football.

Their broadcasters tend to be from that part of the country and they are BIASED BEYOND BELIEF and LIE.

Knowingly LIE.

These are the kind of comments, daily, that all college football fans have to put up with.

Craig James is broadcasting the Rose Bowl ?

What does Craig James know about the Rose Bowl ?

There have been 95 Rose Bowls. Craig James didn’t get to even sniff one. (Rumors of his being able to sniff aforementioned Herschel Walker’s jockstrap, I cannot attest to.)

The facts on that quote of Craig James, for example of ESPN broadcasting B.S. about College Football and how ESPN tries to SHAPE how we all feel about certain teams and conferences and players and now coaches they want to get involved with, are that

EVERY BIG 10 team since that game have LOST the Rose Bowl, except for – of course Craig James the very next year when WISCONSIN ALSO WON THE ROSE BOWL.

No Big 10 team has won the Rose Bowl since.

1999 season is the last time the Big 10 Won the Rose Bowl.

Not this millennium for college football seasons, has the Big 10 won a Rose Bowl.

But, that team was the worst ever to play in a Rose Bowl Game.

Wouldn’t all those other Big 10 teams all This Millennium, all be WORSE Craig James ?

Or, are you sir, NEVER held accountable for your statements any more than St. Simons in here ?

Washington shut out an Iowa Team once in a Rose Bowl 28-0.

But, WINNER Wisconsin 38-31 over the PAC-ZERO team UCLA the 1998-football season, was WORSE than that Iowa team shut out 28-0.

Have to explain that one to me too, sorry Craig, son, you are losing credibility.

Michigan once shut out Southern California 48-0.

ESPN broadcaster Craig James AFTER that 48-0 shellacking, says Wisconsin in 1998 is WORSE – winning 38-31 over UCLA.

???

UGA shut out UCLA Craig James in the Rose Bowl. Wouldn’t that UCLA team be the worst ever ?

SMU

Excuse me SMU football player of the DEATH PENALTY at SMU Craig James, did you know the ONLY TIME SMU was in the Rose Bowl, SMU was SHUT OUT.

SMU is the WORST ROSE BOWL TEAM EVER.

You can quote me on that Craig James.

Michigan shut out a Stanford team 49-0, but Craig James can shape ESPN opinions with his QUIP Wisconsin 1998-football season is the worst ever team to be in a Rose Bowl.

SMU Bowl Record is 4-6-1 All-Time. One would think if you were looking for the WORST BOWL TEAM EVER, SMU would certainly be RIGHT UP THERE.

Especially being shut out in the damn Rose Bowl you are broadcasting Craig James.

As a Matter of Fact, that is the ONLY SMU team to EVER BE SHUT OUT IN A BOWL GAME when SMU was SHUT OUT in the Rose Bowl.

But, that team is NOT the worst ever to play in the Rose Bowl, the WINNER 38-31 over UCLA, Wisconsin is.

B.S. ESPN.

B.S. to your tactics.

Broadcast and quit trying to shape our opinions.

We don’t care what you THINK.

We don’t care Colin Cowherd what you WANT US TO THINK.

24-9.

Craig James, I was there Cotton Bowl, UGA beat SMU 24-9.

I get more than just a little fed up with all this ESPN shaping of my opinions.

All of us are.

SMU hasn’t even been to a Bowl Game for more than 25 years today.

1984.

Open Mouth, switch feet Craig James.

Craig James rushed for 494 yards and 2 touchdowns in the NFL per season.

Never heard of you Craig James, because you are a NOBODY and a LIAR with zero credibility.

I want Tech to win and I think they will. However, the sun will rise Wednesday either way, I will return to my office, stop at McDonalds on the way in and order coffee from the dawg drive thru guy, leave my Lexus with the dawg parking lot attendant, sign in with the dawg security officer, remind the dawg janitor that he is supposed to empty the trash cans outside, not in the floor, and then kick back and make some more money.

If that don’t work, then there will be lots more dawgs on welfare down at the trailer park.

I am concerned about our defense being able to get the Iowa offense off the field. I think we will lose this game in the trenches. I hope I am wrong, but our linemen are too small to handle the Iowa offensive line, and our offensive line is too weak to handle their defensive line.

Iowa will use the same tactics that UGA used against us. Ground game to keep the ball, and strong defensive line to stuff the middle.

I see another beat down coming, so far only Clemson has shown up for the ACC and if we are ever going to compete, the schools in the ACC need to begin signing some of those big linemen. I just hope it is not like last year’s bowl game.

As for who stays or who goes, we can’t control that. I’l love for all of them to come back and see if they can continue to improve on this year’s record. CPJ will recruit the players that fit even better in his offensive system. Just wish he could get some better defensive linemen to stop the run and put pressure on the QB.

Go Jackets!!! See you in Miami.

If you like Cuban Food, here are a few good spots in Miami:
1. Havana Harry’s on LeJeune & Dixie (Great Mojitos too)
2. Rio Cristal on Bird Rd & approx SW 92 Ave (Great food)
3. El Rinconcito Latino on Coral Way & approx SW 65 Ave.
4. Versailles on SW 8 St & 32nd Avenue (good food and the center of Calle 8 Meca)

Don’t Forget to try the Cuban coffee after eating.

Go Jackets!!!!

I love how the leg humpin butt lickers refer to the recent record as 8-9 without referring to the 3 games in a row we beat them before that….

donnie025 – how far do you want to go back? Sure, we can count the three (all of which you have since forfeited for using ineligible players) from 98-2000, but let’s go back before that when we won ANOTHER SEVEN in a row from 91-97. How’d that be? Or even better, we can just cite the whole entire series record. 60-37-5. Or even better some more numbers for you…

30-24.

stings, don’t it?

d pollock – you sure talk tough for an 8th grader. I’ll bet all the big kids at school pull your GT underroos over your head every day.

((30-24)) Caleb King scores again!!! Glad it still hurts.

Now go back to your wizards and warlocks or whatever you little nerds play in mommy’s basement.

To Tech Fans poster … dude, chill with those novels you keep posting. I’m sure most people are like myself when they start reading one. We get through a few lines then scroll past it once we see how much useless drivel you’ve wasted time to type. And you have done it TWICE thus far, 1:25am, and again at 6:43am.
It’s New Year’s Eve…get out and have a little fun. You’re as bad as Ray Finkel’s mom from “Ace Venture” and the guys from “There’s Something About Mary” – you obsessed stalker.

Tech Fans-
“Iowa beat 1 team all season long and that team beat NO TEAM RANKED IN THE FINAL BCS TOP 34 TEAMS (Pennsylvania State.)”
You can bash Penn State all you want, but IOWA beat Penn State, Arizona and Wisconsin who are all in the top 25.

Some drunk UGA basterd was up all night writing a long blog for us to scroll past. Was that longer than any paper you have ever written? Looks like it. Good job bubba. What did you go to bed and the fat trailer trash you roll over and hump didn’t give you any?

Your team is irrelevant this year. Well take a look at the TV ratings for your sorry ass gamblers paradise bowl vs our BCS bowl. They may be higher though because you had 2 mediocre teams who think their teams are as good as the teams that whip them each year(Texas Fla).

Yes you have won 8 of 9, but only 1 has been a blowout which looke dlike Chan was either scared or paid to lay down.

I agree our defense sis sub-optimal, but wow how about your Opie Cunningham QB you had this year. Our red headed fair skined QB at least won games and could pass. YOurs looked like the bully from the Christmas Story. All talk and no production. When you finally got your running game going from your stable of 5 star running backs you beat us at our own game. Congrats. So were you up all night wiriting on a Tech blog because you are so upset you missed the new year with your bowl by 3 days? If we are so IRRELEVANT, then why did you post 300 lines of dribble about BS. And you bash DOug who is one of your own but just doing his job (which if yo ahve a job you won’t be doing very well today from the looks of things) Oh that’s right, its raining and landscapers and DOT workers are off as well as garbage men today.

So get your last jab in, you have 8 months to suffer before football starts again. And hows that Hoops team you got over there? LEts see your only ranked recruit (a 3 star) walked on to Tech with a Hope Scholarship and red shirted. Nice hoops program. We will crush you on the 5th the same day we play for a BCS win while you sit there and post the same dribble. I guess you just have a one track mind. Only football which is I guess an indicaiton of why you are posting on a Tech blog all night (woman tired of the same thing??)

I will give you credit for 1 talking point. I agree we should have kept Tenuta. But our Defense will work out in the long run. how’s that coordinator hunt? Hope you don’t pick up Tenuta and I wish we would get him back.

GO Jackets!!

Uh oh. The Techies have really shown us. They have “almost” beat us several times and we very rarely blow them out. Congrats to the Georgia Tech football program for this tremendous accomplishment.

Boy, the Tech fans really know how to put us in our place.
There is something I’m a little confused about Techies that maybe you can help me out with. You see, I did not attend Georgia Tech or take advanced calculus. I am obviously not as smart, wealthy, or as good of a human being as you are so please forgive my ignorance. Anyway, one minute I see Tech fans boasting about 11 wins, a top 10 ranking, and being “relevant.” Then in the next breath you act as if beating this “relevant” team is no big accomplishment. “Whoopdeedoo, you beat us.” Well Techies, which is it? Georgia either beat an awesomely “relevant” team or they didn’t. You can’t have it both ways.

I think the problem is that deep down inside the Techies know that their 11 wins was the product of a weak schedule. They know that they didn’t do anything that a lot of other teams couldn’t have done under the same circumstances. Its quite telling that the best team Tech will face all year is the 2nd best team in the Big 10. What an absolute crock of a schedule. Trust me when I say that beating Tech this year was far from a great accomplishment for Georgia. Why else would we fire 3 coaches immediately afterward? A great gameplan in a win over Florida this year probably would have saved Willie’s job. A win over a hyped up overrated ACC creampuff? Not so much. We just love rubbing it in your acne ridden faces.

And I know I am dumb and worthless because I am not an engineer Techies, but please do not insult everyone’s intelligence by claiming that you do not care what people think about your overrated season. You are the most insecure bunch of sniveling little nancy boys of any fanbase in college football. Your mindless arrogance is matched only by your massive inferiority complex. You care very much what I and everyone else thinks.

Happy New Year. 11 months of it will be spent sucking on 30-24 until we have another winning score to shove in your big mouths.

Poor Techies.

Please excuse little d. pollack. He is in a bad mood because he poo-poo’d in his pants. I have him in time-out for using nasty language on this blog. I will wash his little mouth out with soap and then he can come back and play later.

UGA Posters acknowlege Tech is a better football program by posting here.

My ploy worked like a charm, the “only life I have is on this board” doggies have shown up!

I love it – you 600 line doggie posters are living on the GT board. GT is your world! You are your own worst enemy. I love it – HAHAHAHAHA.

The more you post, the more you acknowledge the superiority of GT football over UGA football.

I am beginning to think you Doggies who live on this board are Doggie imposters who are really Techies. No, that couldn’t be – Techies live constructive lives, contribute to society.

The true nerds – “I am a doggie poster and live on the GT board 24/7″. You really are your own worst enemy.

Keep posting. We will gladly keep you here! GT is so so important to you.

I don’t have time to read your incoherent blather – I just look at the length and laugh to myself. I have a rich full life to enjoy. You – this board is your life.

Please, please, please keep posting Doggie Losers! I really mean it! This is way too much fun to watch! Who would have ever thought watching doggies pee all over themselves would be so entertaining!

I gotta admit the bad blood between GT and UGA fans is a little funny.. I bet that game is a blast to go to!

The game is going to be great, I of course think the Hawks are gonna win but I think it’s one of the better match ups in the BCS. The teams are pretty evenly matched. I think Iowa gets the advantage because of the amount of time they got to prepare. I’m sure they watched the GT/UM game about 200 times.

Good luck GT, while your at the stadium stop by a Hawkeye tailgate and pound a beer. Us Iowans like to drink!

Go Hawks!

up yours mom. dont make me take my halo off and beat you with it. also, gt beat vt, who sure as hell played bama tighter than uf did (they scored more on bama that ANYONE, but you fvcking white trash retards knew that, right?). you fired your coaches b/c you always have top 5 recruiting classes, yet you haven’t won anything with them. the win over gt was your first big win since uf in 07. pathetic.
