I’m seeing the predictions coming in from the punditry about the outcome of the Georgia-Georgia Tech game, and I’m struck by something: why don’t people credit Georgia’s dominance in this series in the same way they tend to with Florida’s dominance in the Cocktail Party?
At this point, Tech’s last three head coaches all have losing records against Mark Richt. Richt beat O’Leary with Verron Haynes as his tailback. Richt beat Gailey - period. And the genius has lost to Richt’s two weakest squads. It all adds up to a 9-1 record. And yet no one dismisses Tech’s chances this Saturday in the routine way that Georgia’s chances in Jax are discussed.
So what’s the deal here?
