Georgia vs. Georgia Tech Preview - Key Match-Ups to Watch

Georgia leads the series 61-35-9

After winning 9 out of the last 10 games between the two schools, you would think Georgia's idea of Georgia Tech being a big rivalry would have diminished a little - that is definitely not the case. When these two teams take the field, you will see two football programs, separated by 60 miles, that cannot stand one another. 

Giving Thanks That God Made Me a Bulldog

Well, Blawg House readers, I hope you all are enjoying a great Thanksgiving morning with all of your families. 

I love this time of year up here in northeast Georgia. The leaves are changing, the mountains are beautiful... and Georgia vs. Georgia Tech is right around the corner. 

I just thought as a treat for you all, I'd post some recent great memories of "Clean, Old Fashioned Hate." 

2006 - "The Drive"

"Tremendous Opportunity" for Running Backs at UGA

Keith Marshall looks GOOD in Red & Black!

When Aaron Murray was asked earlier this week about how many running backs he's handed off to in the past two years, Murray thought for a moment and then responded, "Seven.... Eight? It's up there."

GT Preview - Understanding Johnson's "Flex Bone Offense"

Paul Johnson - Enter Your Caption Below

Growing up in Savannah, Georgia, Paul Johnson was some sort of legend because he won some second-rate National Championships at Georgia Southern (just kidding GSU fans). 

The reason Johnson became so popular at Southern and, later, at Navy and GT is because of the success he has had running a very unique offense - the flex bone offense. Typically, you see high schools and small colleges running these offenses because the offense covers up a talent gap by making defenses play perfect.

Poor Tech fans... each year they go through the same heartbreak and failure. Won't you help one today?

Hate Week Items to Get Your Blood Boiling

Growing up in Savannah, Georgia Tech was hardly ever mentioned as Georgia's "rival." Sure, it was the annual game between the state's top two schools, but, Georgia Tech... a rival? The majority of my life, and all through my college career, we hardly ever lost to GT. Hell, between the time I graduated college and the time I graduated from UGA and went into grad school in Athens... we NEVER lost to Georgia Tech.

James Franklin - The Insanity Continues

Franklin gets into it with UT coaches

"We're going to play with class, and we're going to coach with class." 

That was James Franklin's message to the media and the nation after his run-in with Georgia's Todd Grantham. Many national media pundits made it a point to call out Grantham for his behavior - yet, Franklin got a pass. 

SEC Rankings - Week 12 - Do or Die Time

TBH's SEC Rankings

After 10 weeks of play, the separation between the top 5 teams and the rest of the SEC is becoming very apparent. LSU is playing the best right now and has justified their #1 ranking week in and week out, however, they still have to play Arkansas in two weeks. This weekend, Georgia has an opportunity to clinch the SEC East, while LSU will have to wait to see if they can clinch with a win against Arkansas.

A Tribute to Larry Munson

"1980 Dawgs" Producer, Mike Moss, sent me a clip to share with the Bulldog Nation as a tribute to the great Larry Munson.
