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.
Then... in 2008, it happened. We lost to GT. I thought it was bad... then... I moved to Atlanta for the last 2 years. Needless to say, that year was the worst of my Bulldog life. I never understood this rival until I actually met some of their smug, arrogant, ridiculously over confident fan base. For a program with a long history of mediocrity, those bugs sure are over confident.
This year, I've been back in Savannah and the bugs have gone away after 2 years of winning and setting the world right. However, this week, they come back. Maybe it is the unseasonably warm weather, but the bugs are back. For my Savannah and South Georgia Dawgs, I just wanted to post some old videos and pictures to remind you - GT is the MOST HATED rival for the University of Georgia!
From the guy who sucker punched the QB from VT:
"Attaochu is a sophomore from Washington, but didn't require much indoctrination into the Tech-Georgia rivalry.
"We know what's going on in the state of Georgia, how people flock to UGA for whatever reason," he said. "I don't know [why]; I'm from D.C. But when I came, I just didn't like ‘em. It just came in my blood, too. I understand. We're going to put our best foot forward, for sure, next week."
Finally, a friend of mine sent me this video from the 1992 half-time show. With Georgia's new "G" logo on the field, the GT band decided to cover it up with a GT tarp. Insanity starts.
