As the Thanksgiving week winds down, I’d like to give “thanks” to the readers who remembered that this is a “fan” blog and not an AJC “beat” blog. My mandate with this blog has been to write it from a fan perspective. That’s been admittedly tough at times this season as the team has stumbled and not played up to expectations. And people seem to take exception when I bash UGA or the SEC in general…which is something every good GT fan should do.
But really…thanks for reading anyways!
So what else am I thankful for?
And today I’m especially thankful that a little Clean Old Fashioned Hate truly IS good for the soul…
So what about the game tonight?
I think the Jackets have historically played MUCH better as a disrespected underdog than as a favorite.
Quite honestly, Tech often stinks the joint up when we’re considered a strong favorite.
And for this reason…I have a good feeling about tonight’s game in Athens.
Noone is giving the Jackets much of a shot in this game, which is why I think we’ll win.
A few factors to consider…
This game will come down to special teams, field position, and who can control ownership of the clock.
Tech wins if the offense stays on track converting third downs and our special teams avoids any game altering gaffes.
UGA wins if they get on top early and start feeding Ealy and King the ball to soak up clock and keep the GT offense on the bench.
Ultimately I suggest that Tech fans embrace the role of underdog today…that seems to be when the Jackets play their best…
What’s the Good Word?
To Hell With Georgia!
Go Jackets! Beat UGA!
