Bulldog Bites: Bowl tickets on sale Sunday night

Will the Dogs go bowling in Atlanta or Shreveport? (UGA Sports Communications)

Will the Dogs go bowling in Atlanta or Shreveport? (UGA Sports Communications)

Atlanta? Shreveport? We’ll find out Sunday evening.

I’m hoping for the Chick-fil-A Bowl but recognize there were times this season when the Dogs looked like they’d be lucky to make it to the Independence Bowl.

I noticed the other day when I wrote about how Shreveport is not a popular destination among SEC teams, some defender of the Louisiana city took umbrage in the comments. Hey, I’ve got nothing against Shreveport itself. But its bowl, in its last year of a tie-in with the SEC, doesn’t generate much buzz. Though whenever I hear the Independence Bowl mentioned, I think of a time back in the 1990s when I was at a UGA baseball game and a guy sitting behind me, who did a dead-on impression of Ray Goff, kept drawling, “Dadburnit, Vince, I like Shreveport!”

Anyway, whichever bowl the Dogs get, the athletic association has announced that tickets will be available to the general public beginning at 8 p.m. Sunday online via the ticket office Web site. Fans also can order bowl tickets by calling 1-877-542-1231 between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Monday-Friday. All ticket requests will be filled in the order in which they are received, subject to availability.

All Hartman Fund donors will receive the number of tickets to the bowl they requested during the pre-order process and also will receive priority on ticket assignments based on their cumulative donation score, the athletic association says.

The Dogs will be making their 45th bowl game appearance. Georgia currently has a 25-16-3 bowl record. This will be the Bulldogs’ ninth straight bowl appearance under Mark Richt.


All-American Drew Butler, who leads the nation in punting, is considered the leading candidate for the Ray Guy Award, given annually to the nation’s top punter. The winner will be announced on ESPN’s College Football Awards, televised starting at 7 p.m. on Thursday. ESPN is conducting a straw poll online as to who should win the award. To show your support for Butler, go here and vote.


The Lady Bulldogs take on Tech’s women’s basketball team at 2:30 p.m. Sunday at Stegeman Coliseum in Athens in a game that will be televised regionally on CSS and carried on radio in Athens via AM 960 The Ref. The game will be the first of a school-record 14 regular-season TV appearances for the Lady Dogs this season.

Georgia, ranked No. 13 in the AP poll and No. 16 in the ESPN/USA Today poll, is 7-0 so far this season, while Tech, ranked 23rd in the AP poll, is 5-1. This will be the first time both teams have entered their matchup ranked in the AP poll.

Georgia leads the series 28-3, including an 11-0 mark at Stegeman Coliseum. Tech won 57-42 last year in Atlanta.

Go Dogs!

There is nothing more satisfying than to watch Tim Tebow cry on the sidelines.

Even if we didn’t have anything to do with it.

He will NEVER be drafted in the NFL as a damn Quarterback.

Florida will NOT play Alabama in the B.S. MNCG as a re-match.

While The SEC CHAMPionship Game dominated the day, how about those other conferences ?

Big XII totally sucks.

Texas has beat NO TEAM who is a Ranked Team.


The Big 10 obviously sucks.

The PAC-10 sucks.

The ACC continues to suck.

The Big East only sucks.


Congratulations Alabama. Your 22nd SEC Championship.

I rooted for Alabama from the start to finish.

I picked Alabama.

I Guaranteed Alabama was the better football team than Florida, who played no one and ran up its stats playing no one.

Florida played 1 ranked team all season long, Number 13 LSU and beat them 13-3. Other than that, Florida beat no Ranked Team.

SoS shows Alabama Number 5 in the nation.

SoS for Texas is Number 31 and Texas didn’t even PLAY a Game against a Top 25 team all season long.

SEC Wins The National Championship, and it will be Alabama’s 18th National Championship.

Honestly, I will root for Florida to lose their bowl game, too.

I think many voters will have a hard damn time pitting Texas with that weak schedule of having NOT EVEN PLAYED A TOP 25 TEAM, as Number 2.

29 percent of the Georgia Tech Student Body are women.


Women were not allowed to take all classes at the Georgia Institute of Technology until 1968.

The 1st Georgia Tech Women’s dormitory was not until 1969.

Georgia Tech, according to the AJ-C only, is a Top National University.

However, in fact, Georgia Tech is the Number 35 Top National University, about what the top ACC school is ranked in the AP Poll in the USA Today Coaches’ Poll and that is NOT GEORGIA TECH.

Number 35.

“We’re Number 35.”

No one claims to be Number 35 at nothing.

Crime continues to be the Number 1 problem on Campus.

This last weekend again, another DOZEN Georgia Tech students were victims of robbery inside their own living quarters.

When Tech students venture outside their home, they are attacked and have their laptop computers stolen from them on the streets of their own campus.


Women do not feel SAFE at Georgia Tech, and never have been safe at Georgia Tech.

This is the fact.

71 percent of the Tech students are men.

College of Liberal Arts is the fastest growing Georgia Tech college, yet Tech football fans act as if this does not even exist at Georgia Tech. Sure it does. It is the only college at Georgia Tech that actually leads the way in growth, but even here, the women make up only 29 percent of the student body at Georgia Tech.

Bachelor of Science in Liberal Arts ?

That what you want ?

Georgia Tech offers such a degree.

Georgia Tech students are heavily stressed and avail themselves of no social functions.

Stress is mostly from the crime on campus.

Stress also from the fact that Georgia Tech is now no longer as SELECTIVE in its ENROLLMENT as at UGA, for example. It is more likely that a student who applies to Georgia Tech will be accepted, than if he applies to The University of This Great State. And, the women are not about to go to Georgia Tech.

Never have.

Never will. It’s not safe and daddy would not let them go after he visits the slums of a city of 6 million, where the Tech campus is in fact located.

Tech should sell the land downtown and move to Gwinnett, as the AJ-C has recently done, with it now quicker for AJ-C reporters to get to UGA than to get to Georgia Tech.


“GETTING OUT” is what Georgia Tech students use as the phrase when they no longer are on the crime-ridden non-female campus.

21 percent of the Georgia Tech student body are in the Greeks. Buy your friends.


Minor crimes around Georgia Tech are commonplace, a reflection of the Institute’s densely populated urban surroundings. The most common crime reported over the last few years, by a large margin, is larceny. Between 2004 and 2006, there were only 32 violent crimes reported, most of them robberies. That the crime rate in Atlanta during the late 1980s and 1990s was the highest in the nation, is what has contributed so highly to the perception that Georgia Tech sits in the middle of the slums of one of the world’s worst crime-ridden areas. Yet, we are to send our children there, especially our girls. Yeah, right.


Georgia Tech is largely ignored even in the city of Atlanta where it is located. Students on campus are surrounded by the city, but the city does little to assist the students, or even to protect them.

With 10 times as many graduates of The University of Georgia living in Atlanta than there are Georgia Institute of Technology graduates living in Atlanta, it seems as if everyone is against Georgia Tech, adding to the biggest stress of all college students being in fact on Georgia Tech students. The lone local paper, AJ-C, tries to assist with this when asked to by Georgia Tech administration chiefly during enrollment periods, by seeking to have folks say “Well, I live here in Atlanta, I might as well root for Georgia Tech and go to the Georgia Tech sports venues to support Tech’s teams.”

The only problem with that is that the student-athletes at Georgia Tech are nothing like the rest of the Tech students.


Tech student-athletes currently are ON PROBATION WITH THE NCAA in men’s basketball, with the NCAA LIMITING Georgia Tech to ONLY 11 scholarships currently because the Georgia Tech student-athletes in men’s basketball have the LOWEST ACADEMIC PROGRESS RATE of all colleges in America.


Tech is supposed to be his great National University. Number 35.

Instead, the APR of Georgia Tech’s FOOTBALL team, men’s basketball team and women’s basketball team, are ALL LOWER than the APR for the student-athletes at UGA. And, UGA is FAR MORE SELECTIVE in applications to UGA both as a student-athlete and as a REGULAR STUDENT than is Georgia Tech ANY LONGER.


Common Sense is lacking in the curriculum of Georgia Tech according to its own students. Anyone reading the spins in retort to this article here by me, will see that common sense is something that does not register with Tech students.

Does it make common sense to go to the WebPages of UGA 10 times the size of your local alumni and brag how you are going to utterly destroy a team you have LOST to 60 times, and then return a week afterward and state that you do not feel that a 6-point LOSS is UGA destroying Tech ? That is so obvious that you Georgia Tech fans, said that you would destroy UGA, wait a week before you have the pair to even come back, and then offer up after a week to think about, that oh well, a 6-point loss is not destroying Tech, you tell UGA fans. It is not that you are that stupid to say that, you just lack the common sense that UGA students have to see right through it, that it was you who said you would destroy us, while our common sense fails to see how a 6-point LOSS is destroying us as not we said, but you.


Part of the reason why college life is supposed to be the happiest time of your life, is that you are challenged to think by others not like yourself. You are off away from home. You are confronted with opportunities to both better yourself and challenge yourself and opportunities in social growth by being surrounded as I, by 1000 women at Brumby Hall and 1,000 women at Creswell while I studied day and night at Russell Hall with a 1,000 men. At Tech, you are afraid to even go outside for all the crime. And, you are so stressed by the crime and the Georgia Institute of Technology with NO WOMEN at this critical juncture in your life that is supposed to be your happiest time in your life, as with UGA students on our beautiful campus, you end up without social graces as demonstrated on these WebPages by your every post.


Tech students even at Fraternities, lock their doors and do not even venture into the common areas.

UGA students are not like this, at all. Yet, we study as much if not more than Tech students.

So, what in the hell are the Tech students doing ?

There sure ain’t no women in there with them behind the locked doors.

The dating scene is dismal at best. And, it is not a good place for women, the number 1 stressed students in the nation of all National Universities, vastly Asian men, Nerds locked in their rooms doing God Knows What in what should be the happiest days of their life, and worrying stressing about the CRIME.


Even the brothers at the Fraternities are stay largely to themselves and no one really interacts with anyone else, even in the Frats. The doors are LOCKED in the Frat Houses as well.


Greek Geeks are Nerds too, and although they drink, they largely even do that by themselves, locked behind their LOCKED DOORS in the Frat House by themselves.


The social life.

BuLLdawg, you must have nothing better to do than spew lengthy dissertations in this blog. What a blow-hard.

Congrats on the huge win over Tech last week. By your behavior it salvaged your season. Looks like things are changing doesn’t it? Remember when Tech could “salvage” a season with a win over UGA?

By the way, do your research on schools. If there are so many more UGA alumni why is UGA’s total endowment just a whopping $600 million? That’s a pretty pathetic number and just over 1/3 of Tech’s.

Congrats again on the win.

We don’t garner any respect from the bowl committee’s because of our teams arrest record in recent years, our fans behavior, firing coaches, and all the personal foal penalties the team seems to get. I can’t say I blame them for wanting to take Auburn or UT ahead of us. Our public image is horrible guys.

December 6th, 2009
8:13 am

You’re right Tech could NOT salvage Tech’s season by beating UGA.

6 of Tech’s “opponents” end up NOT EVEN IN A BOWL GAME.

Orange Bowl has been the LOWEST RATED BCS BOWL GAME.

This year will be no different.


No ACC Team in the AP Poll Top 10.

No ACC Team in the USA Today Coaches’ Poll Top 10.

Winning Record against The SEC by Georgia Tech ? B.S., you played the only 2 SEC Teams not in a Bowl Game this year, and then, well there is the game against 5-Loss UGA – with your 60th LOSS to UGA.

Which explains why Tech FANS spend their time in this Bulldog Blog typing away how :

“I hate to admit it, I would rather beat UGA than win the ACC championship. At least this year.”

“Of course, all true GT fans wanted to beat UGA”

Now that the football season is over except for the bowls, let’s sum it all up.

UGA recruits players who are mostly illiterate felonious goons. Very few of these players graduate, and the ones who do have silly, worthless degrees like “recreation and leisure time activities.” Most players end up in low-paying nonskilled jobs if they have jobs at all, and most live in trailer parks or public housing. Many former players have prison records, some dating back to their playing days. The coaches at UGA know this, but they don’t demand any more, since they only need these players to perform on Saturdays for a few years. The typical UGA fan has never darkened the door of a college classroom.

Georgia Tech players have high school grades and SAT scores that are miles above UGA players. They earn degrees in engineering, science, and industrial management. GT alumni and fans are mostly in high-paying technical jobs and are a credit to their communities.

Would someone please remind me why anyone with any self respect would admit they are a UGA fan?


December 6th, 2009
8:18 am

What’s the deal with questioning the character of the 3 coaches for not sticking around for 3 weeks in a job they do not have. If you can’t figure out why the awkwardness for the rest of the staff, the players, the new hires, and the recruiting would be the last thing everyone needs, you simply are just picking a fight with gentlemen that you have never met for no appearant reasons. “losers” huh? Because they did exactly what Coach expected when he made the meaningless offer. Nice.

30-24 We're just better than you.

I’m trying to count up how many of the UGA felons were arrested this year. And how many thugs like Curran knocked up their girlfriends and abandoned them. And how many UGA fans finished high school.

I just had to get on this pathetic blog about your pathetic dogs & write on your wall since most of you dog fans have nothing else better to do that write on GT’s blog. Can you not stand it for one minuet that GT is better than Georgia? Yeah, you beat us, but I think we lost because we felt sorry for you mutts & you needed some reassurance that the season is not at a loss. I just want you pound puppies to try & to remember this passed year…. how many Georgia players have been arrested, in jail & taken off the team? Now if you can follow us “nerds”, here is another question…how many Tech players have been arrested, in jail & kicked off the team? You want to support a team that has no class, no morals & no coach that can actually have control of his team? Your coach just shows how others should not act. He needs to be a coach, no their buddy to come get them out of trouble. Now, here is another question…where are the pound puppies ranked & where are they going for a bowl game…….I will give you the answer because I know your heads are hurting right now for all the thinking you had to do… you are not nationally ranked & you are going to the toilet bowl to play yet another bad team that barely made it; maybe you will win the plunger as the award. Face it Dog fans, you had a horrible year & Tech had an outstanding year…get use to it!! GO JACKETS!
