Jojatek,
What exactly did you steal from Athens? Georgia Tech is still the SECOND best team in the state. Technically, we stole the only thing in Atlanta that matters, the Governor’s Cup. Even though I don’t consider UGA a second teir SEC team, I’d rather be second tier SEC than the best in the ACC. Have fun in Miami.

60-39-5

tech fans are going to send us a postcard from Miami, huh?? all 7 of them…. i’m willing to bet that UGA sells more tix to Shreverport than tech does Miami… exactly how many made the trip down to Tampa? seriously, wasn’t there about 9-10 thousand there??? FOR A CONFERENCE CHAMPIONSHIP GAME?!? I wouldn’t think there would be much more than that making the trip..

I wish we could play tech in Atlanta every year,, it’s kinda like having an extra home game…and we even get to wear our red home jerseys..

Well I guees I will wade into this mess. I am glad that the win for you Ga Boys meant so much to you. Shows that the game means something to both sides. Who da thunk that was really possible since 2000. I must say that I am glad that the game no longer defines our season. I am also aware that over the history of the series you have won 60 percent of the games as well as the fact that you have won 8 out of the last 9…congrats on that. But to quote the coach you are 1-1 against him in the here and now. So we will do it again this time next year…

Now I will add this. The guys that were screaming 45-42 last year give us as a bad a name as your fans in the wife beaters and who cant spell UGA much less find Sanford Stadium on a map much less in person even if you were to give them tickets on the 50 yard line and hold up game time for them while they were icing down their PBR. Those guys have nothing to do with the fine Institute, more than likely never attended classes there and like turning the pot over. You know like 95 percent of you fans. To those who actually attended and/or graduated UGA I am sure you are tired of those fans giving your program a bad name. I know I am ours.

Y’all have fun in Shrevport, Gawd knows we have played enough games on the Blue Carpet, you can share the wealth. We will go and play in the Orange Bowl and take another step towards that NC that will be coming our way in the next few years.

Oh and BJ….what is you point about the ratings of the ACCCG?? Who cares…with the game moving to Charlotte, where it should have been all along, this year was stepping stone for the conference as well as our program…The SEC has Florida/Alabama and MAYBE LSU…but drops off from there. SOOOOOO again I dont see the point.

JUST A FAN:correction, 3:12 ,12/13 I said look at Steele from SC for next D coach, my bad, what I should have said is look at Ellis Johnson from SC, or possibly Kevin Steele from Clemson. IMO they are both top D coaches with the edge going to Johnson, dont think we could miss with either, but I still think we have a reasonable shot at Smart. The problem with Smart is he is only 2 or 3 years from becoming a HC himself. So what do you do? Im sure CMR is carfully considering all of his options and will bring in a top D man. Still dont thik it will be Garner though, he has pretty much said so himself. But I do think Garner stays though, he is extremely loyal to CMR.

Tebow will be remembered as the greatest athlete of all-time and will be talked about centuries from now. Yes, Tebow is THAT good.

BillBoy 12:15am 12/14, Not a bad post for a Tech man, But I just have one question: what in the heck is wrong with PBR? fine beer if you ask me, and I am a UGA grad, Old dude, lots of money, In your opinion where did I go wrong? and if you say it is my neck, my friend, that is a point of pride for me !!!!…..GO DOGS!!!!!!!!

Just got e-mail from UGA ticket office offering R/T same-day AirTran charter service (food provided on both flights!) from Atl to Port of Shreve, bus transport to game, mystery souvenir and name badge for $495 with ticket, $460 if you already have one or want to get one free at the gate.
Worst deal I’ve ever heard of. I mean if hotel was provided after the game and fly out in the AM it would still suck at that or really any other price but this is just beyond absurd. At least the plane will acclimate you to the mass of humanity at the game.

Gator Nation Station: As a DOG ,I have to agree , but it is hard to compare football players from generation to generation, But you are right Tim Tebow was pretty darn good and I for one am glad to see him go, about like Fla. fans were when a certain Mr. Walker left one year early!! GO DOGS!!!!……And dont forget Jim Thorpe he was pretty good in his own rite.

Ealey and King with both be 1000+ yd. rushers next season, with about 15 – 20 pass plays a game from Aaron Murray to keep their D honest, and we are back to 10+ wins a season again. With Alec Ogletree coming, and possibly Da’rick Rogers (who may move to DB for earlier playing time and exposure) we should be back to the solid SEC powerhouse that our running game demands. No more turnovers. Discipline. Florida is going to be on a down 2 – 3 years, and Alabama is losing a lot of players too, so this is our chance to pounce. Lets get a DC who isn’t afraid to blitz/fake blitz 15 times a game. Lets get back to the trench war that is BullDawg Football.

Red Dawg you as a grad should support the university nor do I really have issues with the fans of the program that are aware of it, support it and are involved. Its the ones who have no clue about anything to do with the University but sure can say “HATD” on command. Tell you what…we will upgrade to Stroh’s or Schafers and Ill but the first round for us.

I know that most Bulldog people congradulate Tech on their very good season. Hat’s off to them, they had the better year. Heck, I can deal with one good year at Tech and one bad year for the Dawgs. Good luck in Miami!

I look at what we have coming back and coming in to the Dawg Nation and can’t wait to see them the next few years. I have not given up on CMR. Get the RIGHT DC in there and we will be fine and competing in the SEC very soon.

Go Dawgs!

Billboy, Dont know if I completely understood your question. Yeh, your probubly right, Smart, is Im sure comfortable in Alabama, but he is a Georgia boy so might as well try, at this point all we are doing is speculating anyway so……so what? as far as the beers go I prefer PBR, Sure you havent had a few jello shooters tonight? Ellis Johnson from SC is who I really think we will end up with, but who knows? Oh and by the way it is RED DOG, not RED DAWG, further evidence of jello shooters, but thats ok I have been known to enjoy a few RED jello shooters myself

UGA spurned by another DC. HE said he liked the fire in Coach Zook. The problem with CMR is he’s to laid back and not enough fight in him. I won’t say a top DC will not come to UGA, but the longer we wait to hire one the less chance of getting those top defensive players that we really need. Thornton and Whitaker would be a tremendous addition to the team, but no one of that caliber will commit to a team without a top DC. Waiting too long wil be very costly to uga. This is not the basketball team.
