30-27 is Chantastic!

I love it when Georgia Tech goes bowling.

    Genius, I sez!

  2. Coach Wise I was happy to see Vandy & GT lose. Playing College Pick’Em, Not So Much.

    For a little while there, it looked like hell was going to freeze over.
    It was a very, very happy ending!
    Did anyone catch the Mississippi State- WF game? Did you hear the announcers actually trying to say the closeness of the contest proved ACC/SEC were equal?
    It was bittersweet seeing Vandy lose to the World.

    • Russ

      The announcers were also talking about Big East redemption with their “big win” over the SEC (bottom feeder – they left that part out).

    The gtu bowl tour continues. Let’s see, they’ve lost in El Paso, Boise, San Francisco, Jax, Miami,…. We’re running out of bowls.

    • Beer Money

      Don’t forget other key bowl destinations like Fresno, Seattle, and SHREVEPORT.

      Georgia Tech sucks at life. It’s like putting your hand on your little brother’s forehead and let him swing away for 20 minutes, only to knock him on the floor with a quick cheap knee to the face.

    Now if it can just be run up Awbarn’s wazoo, it will truly be a glorious day.

  6. Spence

    Bo Back (sic) argued the other day that Al Groh IS a better coordinator than Todd Grantham and Brian Van Gorder. I heard him argue this with my own two ears.

    • Mayor of Dawgtown

      We don’t know how good of a DC Groh is. He works for Tech and has no material.

    • JudgeDawg

      That is the same Beau Bock who, in the 1990s said Jerry Glanville was a great coach and Bobby Cox a bad manager. At least he is consistent!

  7. Indemnitor

    Agreed I also heard this. Groh is right up there w jheri glandville( oh yes auto correct) and grantham is pretty much garbage. Mark Bradley called and he agrees , though his agreeance was muffled by gis gargling cpj’s nard sack .
    Btw tevin Washington doesn’t do anything great but does errything well according to gairy dan’lsn. Good to know- next heisman starts today !!!

    You have a 14 point lead, a Genius Coach directing a clock eating,unstoppable offense, and you lose to another mid-major? This doesn’t even get into how a terrible QB beats you deep on a 4th and 14. Why would anyone commit to play there? Especially academically gifted student-athletes who go with full knowledge GT has the worst graduation rate of all D1 programs. So they aren’t going for the athletic rewards of respect and titles, nor the degree….. must be the cute Flagboys.

    Said coach Paul Johnson, “You feel like somebody kicked you in the gut.”

    Guess that’s what you get for trying to punch people in the face

  10. Indemnitor

    The awesome part is when they decide to change coaches their whole roster is filled w option offense players ! Take a couple years to flush that mess out and find some pro style blockers , qb’s, rbs’s etc.. By then after a couple of 4-8 years they’ll hire ga southern coach again and repeat the shame spiral. Fun fun fun.

    • The other Doug

      The best part will be the offensive line. The new coach can find a JUCO or decent HS QB, but it will take 2-3 years to grow a decent starting Oline. That will be Chantastic!

    • Mayor of Dawgtown

      They’re stuck with Johnson at least for a while. Their Athletic funds are depleted from having to pay off Paul Hewitt. I haven’t seen the contract but Johnson undoubtedly has a big buyout. The Nerds can’t afford to get rid of him.

  11. heyberto

    Got genius?

  12. Aristoggle

    Great line from AJC:

    The come-from-ahead loss …

    Love it!

  13. Spike

    Please don’t fire him. Please. Seven bowl losses in a row, Tech.

  14. Russ

    I love it! Up by 14 with less than 7 minutes left in the game and they manage to screw it up! Outstanding! I’m off to Stingtalk for a little fun!

  15. Cojones

    You can’t fix stupid. We now have enough data from one school alone to write and publish proof to the axiom that we all knew the answer to in the beginning.

    Yeah, but Auburn would have been the trifecta.

    And Franklin’s “no-clue” look from the sidelines just filled in this year nicely.

    Happy New Year, Dawgs.

  16. A quick prediction ,we will hear from CPJ and the the insects about how the Utah receiver pushed off on their cornerback but you will not hear any of them mention one of the worst blown calls I’ve ever seen on the previous play where their corner grabbed the same receivers arm so as to prevent a two handed catch,.That play was Tech’s karma and should start the hot seat rumors but probably won’t.

  17. Keeping CPJ just makes the games and wins against GT that much sweeter, just like putting the cherry toping on your desert. GT will likely keep him as his coaching is just enough to keep you extremely delusion which fits well with those North AVE buzzards.

  18. Go Dawgs!

    I think Paul Johnson just wanted to get more genius praise from Mark Bradley for letting the other team score at the end.

  19. Smitty

    I stayed in for New Year’s because I was sick. But this Tech loss made my day! Thank you again Jackets!!! 7 in a row!

    Most shocking comment on StingTalk:

    “We are arguably the top academic school with a D1 football team. Lower our standards, we could beat UGAy every year. But I’m not willing to risk my degree for that.”

    DO THEY ACTUALLY BELIEVE GT IS THE TOP ACADEMIC SCHOOL WITH A D1 FOOTBALL TEAM? – I would rank Duke, Virginia, BC, Wake and UNC as having better overall academics within their own conference. And how about Stanford, Northwestern, Rice, Vanderbilt, Cal, USC, UCLA, and Michigan? All of these D1 schools are ranked higher than GT by US News & World Report.

    • Tronan

      For all of the gnats’ talk about superior academics, logic obviously is not part of the curriculum at the trade school.

    • Spence

      The SAT difference between tech and Georgia is getting to be pretty insignificant and continues to close. I think that makes us the #2 academic school in the universe.

  21. Lrgk9

    Hmmm, next year we play Ga Southern the week before Ga Tech.

    Looking fgor a serious beat down on GT since we see the same offense 2 weeks running.

  22. gajoey (now in S. Alabama)

    It kills me when they talk about their lofty academic standards. A few years ago they had a nickel back named Reuben Houston who eventually was arrested for possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. I went to high school/graduated with him. He was an idiot and his later actions at GT bore that out (drug arrest and babies by different women). They have special majors there for the idiots (called “riding the ‘M’ train” by my GT friends) to keep their players eligible. They are deluding themselves if they think all these guys are pursuing engineering or science degrees.

  23. Russ

    I really enjoy watching CPJ lose. I love beating him, much more than beating Chan. I kind of felt bad about watching Chan lose. Paul Johnson, not so much.

  24. Peteydawg

    Well Scott, in fairness that post is by a woman who clearly has no idea wtf she’s talking about. Haha

  25. Scott

    Who is Vlad Lee? They act like the second coming of Michael Vick is taking over at QB next year.

  26. 81Dog

    and here’s mark bradley, late to the “caption this picture” party hosted by the Senator a few days ago:

    well, better late than never, I guess, although GTP’s captions were all funnier.

  27. heyberto

    That GT Blazer guy is getting blasted for having eyes and saying what he sees with them. Speak out against the genius and you will be flogged, even if you make sense. Poor guy…. I think I like him.
