Smothered and covered at Mark Richt Field.

Dawgs set a record for points scored and Tech sets one for most punts. Seems like a fair trade.

COFH game day post

If you’re a Nervous Nellie whose mantra today is “but South Carolina”, consider this:

Scoring Offense (ppg)

  • South Carolina:  24.2 (99th)
  • Georgia Tech:  17.5 (122nd)

Scoring Defense (ppg)

  • South Carolina:  25.0 (50th)
  • Georgia Tech:  30.6 (87th)

Yards per play (offense)

  • South Carolina:  5.30 (96th)
  • Georgia Tech:  5.00 (112th)

Yards per play (defense)

  • South Carolina:  5.44 (53rd)
  • Georgia Tech:  5.73 (72nd)

You tell me — is going +4 in turnover margin today gonna do it for the Jackets?

It feels like a Manball kind of day.  Let’s just hope nobody else wearing red and black gets hurt.

Have at it in the comments, peeps.

A rivalry game apology

Elijah Moore, Matt Luke and Ole Miss athletic director Keith Carter all managed the obligatory apology after Moore’s on field display of doggy-style urination helped cause the Rebels to blow a shot at taking the Egg Bowl to overtime.

Keeping in the spirit of the moment, though, the apologies were only extended to Moore’s teammates, coaches and Ole Miss fans — not to Mississippi State.  Some bridges are too far, you know.

All bad things must come to an end.

I had a lot of folks reach out yesterday after Virginia finally ended a fifteen-year (!) losing streak to its hated in-state rival, which was damned nice, considering.  Some asked me how the win felt in comparison to Georgia winning.

All I can tell you is I felt the same way watching this play unfold…

… as I did seeing Robert Edwards’ clinching touchdown run against Florida in 1997.

Matt Hinton put it well yesterday.

It’s not that you wouldn’t trade years of losing for something better.  Of course you would.  But there is something about being in the moment when your team finally overcomes that heavy weight of futility that is worth cherishing.

Sports are great sometimes, yeah?
