Here’s something Mark Richt hasn’t lost control of.

Felony charges for computer hacking?  You’re at Georgia Tech!  You can do that!

A Clarke County grand jury recently indicted a Georgia Tech student for allegedly hacking into the University of Georgia’s computer network to post a message prior to the annual rivalry football game between the Bulldogs and Yellow Jackets.

His indictment came after an investigation by UGA Police, so it looks like Jimmy Williamson’s troops finally did some righteous work.

As always, you can count on StingTalk for a little comedic relief.

    A felony, really? That’s righteous work?

    While I agree that it’s overkill, I also think it’s exactly the level of punishment one of our football players would’ve received if they had done the same.

      I actually thought it was sort of humorous, in a nerdy way. And the kid was basically correct. Still, if he was such a “helluva engineer” he wouldn’t have gotten caught.

      Overkill justice: No one will ever accuse Jimi W. and the boys of inconsistency.

  4. This is over kill. What use to be considered a harmless prank is now criminally prosecuted.

    Yeah, yeah, yeah…computer nerds…. What the hell do I do about a hat?

    All my hats engender some kind of fuck up…I got no time to drive to middle Georgia to buy a new hat.

    It is decision time…my whole future for the next few weeks is in the balance.

    Which hat????????

  8. Holy cow! A felony? This is more like stealing the other team’s mascot. This makes us look like a bunch of pu$$ies. Somebody just drive to Atlanta and punch the guy in the mouth.

    That hurry up caught the TG defense holding their own. Chubb cut through the confusion like Herschel.

  15. Yeah…really impressed all the way around. Good job, coach Lilly! Chubb…wow! Only behind Herschel for single game rushing yardage and only started half the season. That doesn’t even make sense. Set a hell of a standard for yourself moving forward.

    Looks like Grantham has swallowed a lot of aggression since leaving UGA. Along with a lot of large pizzas.

    Big win, I enjoyed that. Feel really optimistic heading into next season! Woof!

    Louisville wasn’t very impressive, so let the Dawg-grading begin. But a bowl win is a pleasant change from the recent past. Now let’s get our shit together and give 2015 our best shot.

  22. Charge him with a felony to scare the shit out of him. He’ll plead to a misdemeanor and get some community service hours.

    Stingtalk is a perfect example of blaming the victim. Georgia’s apparent lack of security gave this kid permission to enter a system he was not authorized to access? I hope no GT players get charged with rape. I would hate to see the justifications for the player’s unauthorized access.

    Also… be careful name-dropping Anonymous and implying they should attack someone. Given the amount of attention that data breaches and security hacks have received lately, I wouldn’t want my name out there suggesting the next target.

      F@&k Tech, they would have done the same thing if the role was reversed. Felony reduced to misdemeanor is how it will go just to show potential hackers UGA prosecutes.
      Best part, in reading StingTalk, is the outrage, followed up closely by the guy’s sister making a GoFundMe account and a message board cry for help, only to be hit on by the forever-virgins that are the Tech student body. Also, one brave poster saying he will punch every UGA fan he sees if the guy is convicted. Hopefully Mark Bradley can find the time to shit out some great article about what a travesty this is.
