If I meet the jerks in the poll who dropped us to number 13, I’m going to punch them in the face.

Aren’t these voters some of the same people who selected the 2nd best running back in the SEC to win the Heisman?

Back to back years ranked in the top 25 to end the season. Something Chan Gailey could never do. Keep it up Paul the future looks bright and UGAy knows it, just look at how many of them stay on our boards.

I would rather win in the state championship than go to the Orange Bowl and make look like a joke. Grow up Jackets and then you can go to big boy bowls and win.

Remember these pre-season statements: “We don’t rebuild, we reload”. “I’m glad Stafford is gone, Joe Cox is more of a team player and a better leader.” “Joe Cox is the next Tee Martin”. From that to UNRANKED. Rekrootin stars mean nothing.

Sure, Clemson, ACC team, is better than Georgia, SEC team who beat #1 ACC team?

Just ESPN bias, on espn.com, fans say Georgia is #14.

Why would GA deserve to be ranked. We had a horrible year and got what we deserved. 8 and 5 is not deserving of any ranking what so ever. We went to the Weed Eater Bowl for goodness sakes. No excuses, no explanation, we just did not get it done. Move on to 2010 and GATA Dawgs.

Look at the bright side, your offense is progressing. You scored 3 points last year against LSU in the Chick-fil-a bowl and this year your offense scored 7 points this year versus Iowa. That’s an improvement year over year anyway HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
Now on with the “Your GT boss is going to fire you” or “you obviously don’t work” comments from the GT fans that are oh so hurtful HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

That is no surprise,GT is a lot better than Ga.That game did not in no way show me that ga was better.Tech is going to have to do things better to get to that next level and get the ACC on the national level!!

OK, so the Dawgs are not ranked, this year. Sending 5,000 yards and 53 td to the NFL was too much to overcome. However, beating GT and winning the bowl game is a good start for next year.

I can’t imagine the SEC champs being ranked #13 at the end of the season. ACC football is what it is, and even if you are the king of ACC you still can’t play with the big boys. Maybe when MIA and FSU get back that will change. So GT enjoy your ACC title. As one poster said, it is like winning the tallest midget contest.

p.s. What are your goals for next year?

Dawgs got the non-rank they deserved, sad to say. Fairly or unfairly, interesting to note that winning the ACC conference championship still doesn’t get Tech enough respect to outrank VA Tech.
