Those of you who argue that the Georgia-Georgia Tech rivalry isn’t overly relevant have some support from a most unlikely source.
“When I played for the legendary Bobby Dodd, our biggest game of the year at Georgia Tech was not the University of Georgia,” former Yellow Jackets center and head coach Bill Curry said. “Our biggest game was the Vols, and you could just feel that from him. It was a very big game, and it was a very big rivalry.”
Yeah, the Georgia Tech-Tennessee rivalry, a 43-game series interrupted by a 35-year hiatus and another 30-year one, is something you can just feel. Bill Curry sounds righteous about that.
Of course, he could just be full of shit. Then again, maybe that’s the real reason he left Tech for Alabama. At least ‘Bama manages to keep playing Tennessee.
