Blink fast, or you miss it.

Ladies and gentlemen, a rare sighting – the final score on the BDS scoreboard after a(nother) Tech loss to Georgia:

I looked up maybe a minute after it was over, and they’d already pulled that sucker.

    Ahhhhh.

  2. Bluto, your reaching for subject matter this morning!

      Speak for yourself. This is salve for my poor injury-riddled, 8-4 soul. ;-)

      Love the photo. Many GA fans can never be happy. They are the kids at Christmas that get tons of good things but whine and complain that did not get everything. Not thing wrong with dreaming big but being grumpy that you did not get the shiny trophy every year speaks more about oneself than a football program.

        Not thing “ Nothing

        “but being grumpy that you did not get the shiny trophy every year speaks more about oneself”

        Do you think they are upset that we don’t get the crystal trophy every year, or that our conference rivals have taken the last 7 since we last even won a conference championship?

        • AusDawg85

          Did you hate the kid next door because his dad got him a shinier new bike than yours at Christmas? Yeah…I thought so.

          • Bulldawg165

            I should’ve known you would jump in with a personal insult. Clearly anyone who thinks the program can do better is incapable of enjoying nice wins like the rest of us and we all must cry ourselves to sleep every single night because we have lost a single game in the past 7 years.

            I’m not the one who brought up the topic either, mind you, as I was simply responding to someone else who threw the first stone. And quite frankly, I’m not the least bit bothered by the fact that we haven’t and won’t win a NC. Keep projecting BS on me though. I understand that you need to feel like you are “better” or “more mature” than someone else on the interwebs.

            • AusDawg85

              Oh c’mon man…don’t be…grumpy? You put the shot in about UGA not winning while our conference rivals did. Don’t be disingenuous that you aren’t implying it’s a shortfall that can be corrected with a change in the HC (…”program can do no better…” “…won’t win a NC.”) Look at those teams since 2007. Only 4 different ones. Nearly all with a Heisman winner leading them. We’ve been a play or two away, scorned by the WWL and other incredibly bad luck. Bogey Dawg was correctly pointing-out how some fans will never be satisfied without a MNC but don’t put it into any kind of context. If that stone wasn’t aimed at you, why’d you let it hit?

              • Bulldawg165

                ” Bogey Dawg was correctly pointing-out how some fans will never be satisfied without a MNC”

                Wrong. Bogey was essentially saying that those who are dissatisfied with the program expect us to win the MNC every year. I quoted what he said above.

                And, well, I’m not fully convinced on the “bad luck” aspect considering we’ve had our share of good luck too. Maybe ESPN wouldn’t have scorned us in 2007 if our two losses weren’t to an unranked 6-6 SC team and a 35-14 blowout to a team that LSU beat in the SECCG. Like it or not LSU’s body of work was better than ours that year. 2002 is a different story, but I’ve mentioned in other posts how the ball bounced in our favor last year and we didn’t get it done.

                • Bulldawg165

                  Oh, and it’s perfectly possible to accept the fact that we are never going to win a MNC and still be happy and enjoy good wins over our rivals, contrary to the false dichotomies that you and Bogey Dawg like to present.

                • Dawgfan Will

                  I don’t know why I keep rehashing this. It’s like I can’t stop myself. And even though I’m responding to your post, this isn’t directed at you. It’s directed at the “LSU’s resume was better than UGA’s in 2007″ argument.

                  My problem with that line of thinking is, if indeed their resume was better than ours, why weren’t they ranked higher than us going in to the SEC Championship game? We both had two losses (and I’ll agree that their losses were less embarrassing than ours). They had made it to the game and we hadn’t. If they had been #2 and we had been #3 before the game, I would not have any problem with how things played out. The rankings were gamed by enough people to get the result that Herbie and ESPN wanted, and the rest is history.

                  WHEN WILL I BE ABLE TO LET THIS GO, O LORD!

                  Sigh.

                  • Bulldawg165

                    Well, my point was that LSU’s resume AFTER the SECCG was better than ours because they just beat a team that steamrolled us. Even without ESPN’s lobbying, a two loss conference champion should leap a two loss team from the same conference (unless the conference champ lost head to head against the other team). Perhaps our resume was better BEFORE the game, but certainly not after. If UGA weren’t your favorite team I doubt you would feel the same way you do now.

                    I also don’t believe that ESPN has as much influence in voters minds as some people think. If a couple of blog readers can see their bias, don’t you think others can as well? I suppose that’s another argument for another day though.

      Not at all. I love seeing this. The techsters sure are childish about this stuff.

    The 5th quarter. Didn’t realize that they also teach the 5th quarter to go along with 5th down.

    Mark Richt: 7 wins in Atlanta in Clean Old Fashioned Hate

    Georgia Tech’s last 7 coaches combined: 6 wins in Atlanta in Clean Old Fashioned Hate

  5. Go Dawgs!

    I tried to get a picture of the board about 30 seconds after the game ended, not remembering that the Jackets like to get butthurt about games and switch the scoreboard off immediately after a loss. It seems like they didn’t do that after the 2011 game there, but I remember after one of Richt’s first wins there it literally switched off one second after the clock hit zero.

    Contrast that with what I’ve been told about the aftermath of Jasper Sanks in ’99 when they left the scoreboard on ALL WEEK.

  6. Don’t get me started….

    Where’s www to tell us how obsessed we are with GT football?

    • Dawgfan Will

      In all honesty, I am obsessed with Tech losses. I can’t get enough of ‘em. Fortunately, they provide a steady diet.

      • Spence

        My wife said my hours of reading StingTalk after the win was very abnormal and not attractive. I feel better about myself when I read this blog and commenters like you who share in the delight.

        • Dawgfan Will

          When I told my wife that I had read all 45 deliciously anti-climactic pages of the in-game Stingtalk thread, she looked at me as though she might be reconsidering certain choices she had made in her life.

  8. Rock and Roll Rebel

    I think it’s time to boot this “rivalry” game and relegate it to every few years status like, say, Ga Southern. GT does not deserve the place they hold in our schedule every year.

    • Go Dawgs!

      Guaranteed major conference OOC win every year? I’ll take it. And the joy that the look on their nerd faces brings me as they realize that this year won’t be the year, again, is one of the things that keeps me going through the long 8 month desert of no football.

    • I continue to marvel at people who want Georgia to give up a series in which it has won 12 of the last 13 games.

      • gastr1

        Against a nationally-credible rival, no less. What amazes me just as much is that the rest of the country seem to think GT is a real contest rather than an OOC patsy.

        • Rock and Roll Rebel

          Don’t see it covered that way. On “rivalry Saturday” there were exactly ZERO stories on the GA-GT game. Most barely even flashed the final score.

  9. DawgVegas

    I remember that Munson had a collection of framed photos of the final scoreboard. He hired a guy to take a picture every year, and Larry would talk about how difficult it was some years to get a good one because the GTU folks would take it down so quickly.

  10. Bright Idea

    They cut the board off when overtime STARTED!

  11. Debby Balcer

    Our board has been cutting off early this year. I tried to get pictures of the score and could not.

  12. Bulldog Joe

    Wow. We walked out of there thinking the game ended in a 100-100 tie. 8-)

  13. Boy, the warm fuzzy from yesterday went south quickly.
