EA Sports NCAA football 12 Georgia Tech promo

Got this from EA Sports – a Georgia Tech teaser for its NCAA Football 12 video game, which comes out July 12.

I’m always amazed at the quality of the graphics in games these days (cue sentimental music, and me sitting on a rocking chair on my porch). We’re a long way from Tecmo Bowl, or, even better, the handheld Mattel Electronics football game. I got a version of this for my 11th or 12th birthday and thought it was the coolest thing ever. Or, for that matter, the vibrating football field game. My friend David Kline had that and we played it once; totally bogus. (The game, not David Kline.)

It features the Tech marching band, the Ramblin’ Wreck and a fight song you probably know pretty well. You’ll likely notice, unfortunately for the good folks at EA Sports, that the Jackets are running out of the southwest tunnel. They usually take the field from the northeast portal.

I find it extremely appropriate that the Tech athletic blog is about a video game.

There is a GT on the helmets. But not TECH on the cheerleaders, which is strange.

Publicity is good. We have one of the best college traditions in the country. Actually, if it’s not total sacrilege to say this, I think BOTH the state schools have great pageantry. Tech has more and quirkier traditions dating from its military roots in the oldest and winningest D1 stadium, and Georgia has a simple, relatable mascot and a really big modern stadium. I root for Tech, but this state is blessed when it comes to gameday tradition. At least we’re not Mississippi.

Go Jackets!

1) UGA says: Nerds, nerds and nerds. Tech says; morons, jail birds and trailer trash. Which would you rather be?

2) UGA; college football “glory”. Tech: lifetime of higher income and respect. Which would you rather have?

Nuff said!

Hey 706>404–I’m really surprised that your bosses at Burger King allow you to have some time away from cleaning the bath room floors to be able to comment on this blog.Oh well. I guess you get special privilege because of your UGA diploma.

Another problem with it is that the stadium is actually filled. That is completely and totally inaccurate.

JM, equivalent of Fenway, that’s why we get so many Thursday nights……ManUp, chuckle at sanford & son being modern, they’ve already abandonded the meadowlands, pretty sure hoffa alive when they built s&s…….not enough bathrooms, could not see the jumbo from my third level seats(at least was not in the top), & noted they had included concrete blocks in the construction at that height-good thing we’re not in an earthquake zone!(on second thought, …..)

To make a run at the coastal we must: cut fumbles by half and keep developing the 3-4 D. Off yards will always be there for PJ. Cute graphics are great but wining is better. Has anyone UGA on EA Sports?

Tennessee had 107,000 at every game and sucked. UGA had 98,000 at the first 3 home games and sucked. (about 60,000 by the end of the season). If success was measured by popularity Justin Beiber would be the President of the United States and UGA would have more than 1 National Chapionships in the last 31 years.

Wait a minute 706 … I think I’ll hop over to a GA blog, and act my shoe size instead of my age.

Seriously, be an adult and just stay on the GA blogs, talking GA football.

I hate the GA dogs, and would root for the Taliban if the dogs were playing them, but I don’t go on a GA BLOG to say that.

Grow up sir, and stay on your dog blogs please. Or go watch the Paris Hilton show if you’ve already wore out your welcome with your fellow dogs fans. But just GO (away from GT blogs) please.

Paris Hilton blogs??

I think she may even be a better candidate to fire up your baseball team than an admitted drug addict speaking to a group of kids who lost one of their own to a drug overdose not too long ago.

your fanbase is absolutely pathetic, pompous, arrogant, degrading pieces of s—, and then you all cry becuase nobody shows you respect.

Just pointing it out to you.

Let’s hear your academic of life’s paychecks comeback….. doesn’t change the fact UGA has OWNED you for the last decade, and it chaps your a– every time you think about it.

There lies the problem Lee Reeves,

Tech fans hate UGA MUCH, MUCH, MUCH more than they love Tech.

So sue me for returning a little of that hate.
