Pollack’s advice to Owens: You are what you eat

Supersized senior defensive tackle Jeff Owens has become something of a legend among Georgia fans on Twitter for his frequent updates about eating. If you follow Owens on the social media site, you generally know where he’s having lunch or dinner.

But those tweets took an interesting turn this week as Owens discovered that Big Brother is watching. Or, rather, former UGA star defensive end David Pollack, another heavy user of Twitter.

Here’s how the exchange went (I’ve fixed the punctuation):

jeffowens95: Just finish working out; today’s running killed me.

davidpollack47@jeffowens95: It’s bc [because] your diet sucks, get the heck out of Waffle House.

jeffowens95@davidpollack47: Ha ha, I’m a D Tackle.

davidpollack47@jeffowens95: No excuse, diet is important.

Pollack continued his “intervention” the next day.

jeffowens95: Time for dinner. I want to eat at the Blind Pig.

davidpollack47@jeffowens95: That’s fine, but try a salad homie.

Last I saw yesterday, Owens was heading to Johnny’s Pizza.

For a salad, I’m sure.

ACC Football is a Joke

If 11-2 is so great and your football program is so great and your coach is so great, then why can’t ya’ll convince any decent recruits to come to your school. Ga tech’s recruiting class is a joke, just like ACC football. Maybe the recruits are too afraid to come to Tech with all these murders and robberies on the campus.

Dawgtime the ironic thing to me is that GT fans are raving about talent that a coach who’s guts they hated recruited. They will not see that kind of talent there again anytime soon.

Alldawgs… you can bring up records all you want. The fact still remains that Georgia physically outmanned Georgia Tech for 60 minutes and would probably do it again were there a rematch. I’m personally going to enjoy pointing to your “2009 ACC Champions” banner and reminding you of the butt kicking Tech received in their own stadium no less.
I’m sure we could have gone 11-2 in the ACC as well. And please… for your sake… don’t mention that you played Mississippi State and Vanderbilt. We don’t care that you beat the last place team in each division. You got beat by a 7-5 Georgia… hate to see how you’d fare against a 9-3 LSU (oh, wait, didn’t they spank you last year… in Atlanta?).

LSU 20-13 We lost by a touchdown. LSU 38-3 ya’ll lost by a SEC beatdown! Vandy, and Miss State aint UGA, and LSU as Tech Nerds can clearly tell you ! Tech Nerds just think, AJ Green was on the sidelines watching this, licking his chops for next year!

I have congratulated every Tech fan that I know on the conference title and BCS game, even the ones that I manage at my office. It is exciting to be there for the first time. Just remember that in this decade UGA has won 2 conference titles and been to 3 BCS bowls. One bad year does not mean that Georgia football is sliding into mediocrity. Go Dawgs! Let’s beat A&M and then get ready for the 2010 season.

I’ve always like JO95, but he just seems to have never reached the potential he could have been during his time at UGA. Don’t know if it was the injury last year or whatever, but I really thought he could have been a heck of a tackle in college and in the pros…

…but it looks like that won’t happen!

…and I wouldn’t trade the Dawgs season for Tech’s ACC Championship!

Tech nerds are suffering from CMR disorder. The dogs own the Tech Series, but I’m glad that the Jackets are at least for now copetitive. They have won, one out of 9 of the last few games. I think Tech will run away from Iowa. Big 10 to slow. Based on the Pollack comments, maybe we need a little improvement in the fitness area?

Hey Techies, are you engraving the Ga game score again this year?
How about the fact that UGA is your conference champion?
You beat UGA in an average UGA year by 3 points.

Is an ACC Championship similar to a gold medal in the special olympics?

Seriously, the week before the championship game, the two “best of the ACC” got pounded by the 3rd and 5th place teams in the SEC East…

To all you Dog fans. Man up – you certainly won the game but do you really think you had the best team? Without a doubt the dogs wanted it more (as a Tech fan I say what beat Tech was Ga loosing to Kentucky). Georgia deserved to win the game, but top to bottom, start of the season to the end Tech WAS the better team. This Tech fan likes the dogs, it’s the “nation” with your WAY over inflated view of yourself that is the problem. By the way—-Georgia 30, Tech 24. We understand.
