MGT is the business school, which is ranked ahead of UGA’s “flagship” Terry School of Business.

Obviously superDawg hasn’t paid attention to the cheerleaders or dance much and has no idea what it takes. Likewise, managers and trainers work as hard as the athlete win no recognition. Oh well, consider the source I guess.

You have to take a full year of calculus to earn a BSMgt at Tech. Hardly a cake walk.

Hooray for all the grads. All of us who have graduated from GT know it can be tough. Remember, the words of PJ, “If someone is giving you a hard time punch them in the nose.” Additionally, you can take pride in knowing you are most likely that person’s boss!

As some have already noted, Tech’s business school has a better national ranking than UGA’s does.

The MGT degree at Tech is very operations and technology driven. Its not retail, sales, or hospitality oriented at all.

I’m quite happy with my GT MGT degree and its corresponding six digit salary. *wink*

Come on, people, don’t let a fool like superDawg get under your skin. The last time he was in a classroom was sixth grade, when he was already 16 and driving a tractor to school. Look, he can’t even spell dog right.
What more do you expect from a fire hydrant-wetting, slobbering, furniture-lovemaking dimwit?

The RHODES SCHOLORSHIP is one of the (if not the) most prestigious scholarships awarded in America.
Only 3 schools from the ACC have more students who have been awarded this scholarship than the UNIVERSITY OF GEORGIA.(16) They are Virginia, Duke and North Carolina.
Every school in the SEC has more winners of the RHODES SCHOLARSHIP than Georgia Tech (3), except Mississippi State (1) and Auburn (3).
All schools from the SEC have had at least one student win a RHODES SCHOLARSHIP, while the ACC has two schools that have never produced a RHODES SCHOLAR (Clemson and NC State)
Georgia Tech fans and students like to brag about how good their school is, #5 Engineering School?
#1 Stanford (82)
#2 MIT (36)
#3 University of Cal- Berkley (22)
#4 Cal Tech (6)
#5 Georgia Tech (3)
It is interesting to see what a huge drop-off there is between the #3 best engineering school and the #5. Why can’t Georgia Tech produce more RHODES SCHOLORS?, MIT has 36! GT only a pitiful 3!

To the Muttlanders in attendance, we all want to win THE BIG GAME! We have always wanted to win it, it’s just this last time, your ilk finally admitted it was just as important to you. Props to you. You have scoreboard. However, it’s much more important to win in life and a degree from Tech gives you a competitive advantage. Therein lies the difference between the two fan bases. If the Muttlanders win, they have nothing else on thier shingle.

People who go to GT are wanna-be engineers who could not get into Stanford or MIT or the University of California, or they are people who just never wanted to move out of their mothers basement.

To earn a degree from GT is quite an accomplishment. My two best friends from HS, at least a quarter of my graduating HS class, and my Dad (UG and Masters) went to Tech. I will attest my two friends had to study way, waaaay harder than I did in the mid 80s. I’m sure UGA is a lot tougher today than when I attended, but I’m very sure Tech is still much more difficult than UGA.

It takes a lot of discipline to do what these scholar athletes have achieved. Good luck to them, and I’m sure they will be successful. A Tech degree does carry some weight!

See y’all ‘tween the hedges in November.

Ugh, the Rhodes Scholarship is a liberal arts award. Stanford and UC Berkley are not engineering only like GT and CalTech, and MIT also has a sizable liberal arts program.

UGA is a massive liberal arts school roughly 20 times the size of GT’s Ivan Allen College of Liberal Arts. Realistically, if the two schools were similar in academics, UGA should have close to 60 Rhodes scholars, since GT has three.

BIG BEE

SuperDAWG, too bad that the Masters in Tech Hating is the only one you use. Also MIT Grad– location, location, location, has nothing to do with mother’s basement. Home state of the schools you mentioned are way to liberal!!!! I think even SuperDAWG will agree to that.

I am a UGA grad with a business school degree that went to GA Tech my first year and majored in Management. The core courses were very much the same except the science classes at Tech were harder. I was a student/athlete at GA Tech my first year and that was tough. Both schools are great in their respective fields, Engineering and Liberal Arts.
Congrats to the GA Tech student/athletes for earning their degree from a great school. Any college athlete that graduates in 4-5 years should be very proud, especially from a great academic school as Tech.
In this day and age, a student/athlete that actually graduates should be commended since a majority of them only care about athletics.
Congrats to Recardo Wimbush for coming back and graduating. His parents must be proud.
On another note. I wish for just one day that BOTH UGA and GA Tech fans wouldn’t go on the others blogs and bash each other when something good happens for another school. BOTH sets of fans are guilty. It is not even football season yet. Let everyone enjoy the good times that the players are having.
CONGRATS GA Tech student/athlete graduates!! You now have something that can never be taken away from you.

LOL

I see you Techtards are at it again, trying to live vicariously through the student athletes at Yech, “Ohh lookie, our athletes are superior to your UGA athletes because they graduate from Tech.”

What a bunch of crap. For the majority of the football players, do you morons really think they would have qualified to the school unless they were athletes first?? Like someone earlier already posted, ebonics is the first language for these “student” athletes.

Like any of you really care anyway. Unless you are a friend of, or related to any of the above mentioned athletes, the only reason you NERDS even bring this up is to act like youre above everyone else.

Your athletes are no smarter than any other fan base’s, on the average. Now on the playing field, your teams SUCK. It’s all good though. That’s what most of you nerds enjoy doing the most anyway, sucking!

“Did any of the football players who played graduate? Thought so!! HA !!”

Here is the information————-

Georgia Tech had only 4 seniors on the 3-deep roster last year:

Sedrick Griffin – Starting LB – is on the list in this blog
Brad Sellers – Starting OT – is completing his BSCE
Cord Howard – Starting OG – is in the NFL
Dan Voss – 2nd team C – is still in school

3 players on the 3-deep for 2010 have already graduated-listed above:

Robert Hall – Starting DE (injured in Game 3, 2009)
Zack Krish – 2nd team OL in 2009
Osahon Tongo – 2nd team DE in 2009

Ramble On,

Don’t sit there and act like youre football royalty. My Coogs will be ranked higher at the end of the season than your team will, trust me.

Our defense isn’t so great, but yours is worse. If the teams played, we would win something like 49 – 38. Of course Tech would never play a team like UH. Too scared. People love to run down the non BCS teams, of course it strikes me odd that the big boys will never schedule them.

At least I give credit to teams like Okie St, UCLA, Texas Tech, oh and Missy St.-whom both of our teams beat last year by a TD.

RAMBLE ON!!!
