It’s Georgia Tech time, peeps. I don’t have time for any of you weenies who express the thought that this rivalry’s time has passed. Beating the Jackets has never lost its spice for me and if it ever did, that would be the time to plant my sorry ass in the ground.
In the meantime, to get things started, I’ll have a daily refresher on why my point of view about the game is the only proper one for a Georgia fan to have.
Today’s reminder is about the sorriest aspect of the genius’ offense.
The Bulldogs again are preparing for Tech’s triple-option offense, and all those cut blocks that come with it.
“I’m definitely not excited about playing against cut-blocking,” Bulldogs junior outside linebacker Davin Bellamy said after Saturday’s 35-21 victory against Louisiana-Lafayette. “Playing this offense is going to take a lot of discipline.”
The Bulldogs and Yellow Jackets are both 7-4 this season, with Georgia having won three straight games and Georgia Tech two.
Before their game two years ago in Athens, then-Bulldogs defensive lineman Ray Drew said he liked cut-blocking “as much as a cat likes a tub of water…”
They ain’t wrong. Neither was Jordan Jenkins.
“As a defensive player you can’t really get up and get excited to play a team like Georgia Tech,” Jenkins said. “That offense sucks for you. There’s a chance you might get hurt. There’s a chance you’re going to be bruised up, banged up afterward. It’s not a type of offense you get excited to play. That’s why it attributes to the hate a lot of Georgia players have for Tech.”
While you’re getting in the right mood, never forget charming moments like this one.
