Georgia Tech quoteboard

TEVIN WASHINGTON

On passes being open against 9-man front:

We had put it on the check. The pass I threw to Embry (Peeples), we had put in a check for that because last year when we played them, we saw how they were lining the safeties really wide and they were leaving the middle of the field wide open. We wanted to take advantage of that.

On responding to coach Paul Johnson’s challenge to take care of business:

I think we responded well. At times, it wasn’t always perfect, it wasn’t always a good at times, but the end result is we finished out strong and got the win. We got the result we came here for.

It’s like that every week but this week, there was more emphasis on taking care of business. We worked too hard all year, all offseason, to come here and not take care of business, not finish the way we want to.

On the first-down run to run out the clock:

Coach (Paul) Johnson just told me to get the first down. He was like, the sprint-out, there shouldn’t be anybody out there. You should be able to just sprint around the edge and get the first down.

On receivers making adjustments to make catches:

When they make an adjustment, it gets your confidence up. Guys go out there, make a play for you, you go out there and try to make a play for them.

EMBRY PEEPLES

On not having Orwin Smith:

It was a little different, because you normally have that power at that position that we usually get from Big O. We still just have to come out here and play the same like he was there.

On his race to the pilon for his touchdown run:

It was a little closer than I thought. I was thinking Roddy (Jones) was going to get the safety down and he kind of chipped him and he kind of stayed on his feet and stumbled up. It made it a little more difficult, but the end result is I got there. That’s all that matters.

JEREMIAH ATTAOCHU

On if it was difficult to get into the flow of the game after halftime:

Not really. I mean, football is what we do. We step on the field, it’s time to go. It doesn’t take long to go. Mentally, I was ready to go and physically, I felt like I was ready to go in, too. So I just went in relaxed. I didn’t try to be a savior or anything. l just went in to play my role on defense.

On the penalties extending drives:

That’s definitely a concern. The funny thing about it is, it’s an easy thing to fix. We know exactly what’s wrong. That’s an easy problem to fix. We’re definitely going to fix it, be more disciplined.

STEVEN SYLVESTER

On Georgia:

We definitely want to go out on a good note. Georgia’s had our number the past couple years. They just keep rebuilding and reloading. Georgia’s always going to be a good football team, so we’re going to have to really be on our game when it comes to next Saturday.

DUKE NOSE TACKLE CHARLIE HATCHER

Being one of the defensive tackles, we came out wanting to stop the dives, and they were able to get some yards on dives on occasion, and we can’t let that happen. Then there were some pass plays and some outside running plays. You have to stop those big plays from happening by holding them to under three yards. We were able to do that on a lot of drives, but not every one of them, so it kind of hurt us.

I don’t know why UGA would even try to run on us next week. We can’t stop a short pass. Aaron Murray will have a career day and they’ll hang half-a-hundred on us unless Groh can come up with something quick.

31-17? Series history would say no, but that’s why they play the game. I expect it will be closer and the Jackets are due another win in the series.

Reasons the nerds hate UGA so much:

UGA has hotter women (apparently Tech has none in general)
UGA has a bigger and better stadium
UGA sellsout their games
UGA goes to Championship games
UGA is almost a constant 10 win or more team.
Athens vs. Atlanta (crime)
SEC vs. ACC
Tech constantly loses to UGA in most sports
Tech fans remaining a virgin for life

Richt has a tough decision this week. When the players that get arrested for DUI and smoking pot get their mug shots in the Red and Black, Richt will have to decide whether to suspend them for the first half of the Tech game or the first half of the SEC championship game.

Steve ….
In case you were wondering, GT nor UGA covered their spread yesterday. GT was -10 or 11 I believe, while UGA was -30.

Kinda dumb to jump on the GT blog and rag the Jackets for not doing something that even your Dawgs couldn’t do … cover a spread vs. a weak opponent.

Or is your argument gonna be something like this:
UGA vs. UK was an SEC game, and everyone knows how great this conf is so….
On the other hand, GT vs. Duke was an ACC game, and everyone knows that conf stinks.

For Steve:

HOW TO SPOT A TROLL
1. He usually has dawg in his screen name.
2. His IQ, based on his posts, is likely to be single digit.
3. He has never been to Athens.
4. He has no life.

Reasons why jealous UGA losers post on our blog:

Cowtown versus real city of Atlanta (we actually enjoy real restaurants, nightclubs, etc.)
The Varsity (the real one)
More championships (and more recently) than UGA
Hotter Women of Atlanta (you loser)
We get jobs after graduation – you deliver pizzas and wait tables
10 win team – really? Dumb A already forgot about last year?!
We recruit character you recruit characters that embarrass your University
You barely beat Kentucky and you are gonna get smoked by LSU (after we whip your A)

THWG! and get off our blog loser, you’ve got another pizza to deliver

Steve, as usual, you misquote and mislead. I never said we had Georgia’s number, I said “we’ve got to get Georgia’s number.” There is a big difference between the two. But, of course, you never worry about the truth. I said after the USC game that UGA would win the rest of their games. I’ve also said that Tech is going to have to play its best game of the year, and maybe get a break or two, to win. But you go right ahead a write the trash that you do day in and day out. What a life you must lead.

I typed this on another blog on which an idiot who calls himself DawgNole went on a couple of hours attacking Supersize that order, mutt, On and on. The same applies to Steve and the others whose only meaningful thing in their life is to get on a Tech site and spit out thier incredibly stupid and hateful comments.

It would seem most unlikely that even DawgNote is still here after his ongoing rant of last night, but it still mystifies me as to how any individual can get so much pleasure cominng on another team’s blog and just attack, attack, attack. First, anyone who reads these blogs knows that there is/are (a) UGA fan(s) who seem to get their kicks using Super’s name. They have done it with me a few times. This is real cool — even though most cowardly. I know that Ken is not going to remove offensive comments, and that’s ok, but he should atleast make people stick to one handle, or let us know when they use multiple, and often other’s, names. I would like to go to a system like the letters to the editor in which you actually have to state your name before they will post it. I assure you, that would cut out most of the cowardly crap we see from folks such as Dawgnole. I’m sure I am asking for too much, but its worth a try.

Tech Versus UGA

November 20th, 2011
10:40 am

This will be a good game. Both teams have shown signs of being pretty good and both have played pretty sloppy at times. The obvious is for UGA to stack the box and dare Tech to throw… Tech will throw and were practicing against Duke. If UGA can establish a running game they will go with that to keep Tech’s offense off the field. Turnovers and Special team’s play will be huge…..no one likes to lose this game…. but that’s what makes it fun

HighTechRedneck

Tech Versus UGA…UGA has a tough secondary and the linebacker, Ogletree, is a beast. Not sure about UGA’s running game. Crowell is not durable and the other running backs, while good, are not as good as what they had last year. Murray is a good quarterback and hopefully Groh will call some effective blitzes to make him hurry and make mistakes. Tevin Washington will need to not throw “floaters” that Rambo and the others can pick off.

All these trolls, on the Tech site so early, crowing about surviving against Kentucky, a team which has won 4 games all season, including against Western Kentucky and Central Michigan, but was most recently blown out AT HOME to Vandy, and beating up on Auburn, who struggled against mighty Samford, AT HOME? Wow, you must be so proud of your “beloved” team, steamrolling these powerhouses, just like the other you’ve won in a row…

Shoo little trolling doggy fans; come back next week, if you must, because then we’ll have something in common to talk about…the same game. Those who want to talk real football, welcome, we enjoy your conversations. We both know rivalry games mean records get thrown out the windows and anything can happen.

Reasons why UGA fans hate Georgia Tech fans.
1. We make more than 7.50 an Hour
2. Atlanta is interesting more than one day a week
3. Everyone hates their employers
4. Because even Georgia fans know that 4 national titles is more than 1
5. We know what it is like to spend less than $50 dollars at a bar
6. Even the Princeton Review says our athletic facilities are better

@ Steve-
Reason you came up with that list
1) You have no women in your life to give you anything to do

Look at your list please, here’s where you’r wrong-
1) Tech has women, we call them cute…you call the one you know “Boss”
2)Your team had a chance to clinch a SEC East Title and didnt sellout
3)You must be a bandwagon fan cause UGA hasnt been to a SEC title game in awhile
4)You hit the nail on the head man, UGA GOES to Championships, doesnt win them, but yall go..HA
5)Tech has the last Confrence title out of the 2 teams
6)Tech has the last Natl Title between the 2 teams
7)There is crime everywhere, you’ll prob be missing a tire when you go outside…if you have a car and ever leave mommy’s basement
8)The only teams in the SEC who can brag are LSU, BAMA, and Arkansas. All 3 of those teams would kill you guys and 1 will get the chance to. Notice all 3 of those teams are in the SEC WEST. The East only sends someone to the game cause they have to…
9) Tech fans are virgins for life?? Hahah, funny, coming from the guy who prob paid his cousin to go to prom with him

Maybe Steve doesn’t understand this, but people do not go to Tech to meet hot women or because they want to bask in the glory of Herschel Walker and a 31 years ago national title. Generally, they’re doing it because they want a high quality education and a high paying job. Some of them even get off on being able to say no to your vacation request.

The hot women usually come after all that, and, there are plenty of hot ones in Atlanta.

Finally, Steven, may I suggest that if you’re looking for a really safe place to go to school, up at Penn State in Happy Valley, it’s pretty much just like Georgia, and you might find the former defensive coordinator to your liking.

Finally, trying to remember the last time a GT professor went on a murder spree, but I do recall the UGA professor who axed his wife, http://www.cityjournalistdirectory.com/event/wanted_george_zinkhan_for_murder_athens_georgia/

Yeah, no crime there.
