VT 09 and both Clemson games in 09
I change my vote. Noles in 08 was the most improbable game ending I've ever witnessed but the 98 Lil Joe, Dez White does it...again, and Charlie...Charlie....oohhh Charlie was the best. We dug a deep hole early but never stopped fighting. Nate Stimson sealed it by sacking Aaron Brooks just out of field goal range.1998 GT UVA game. 08 GT Noles is close second.
This one is easy for me... The 1990 game against Clemson was the best football game I've ever seen in person.
It was an equally matched game that was a physical brutality for all involved.
The game ended with Kevin Battle, Coleman Rudolph, and the rest of the defense holding Clemson out of the endzone on 4 consecutive plays inside the 5.
As a fan, it would be hard to imagine a more compelling match up as we saw that day.
Lol. It's all good. I think we've covered all the good ones at BDS. That was a great win at DV, and so was the Goose to Watkins game.Crap, you're right.
It was not a day; for the meek and mild............for years folks used to say that Dodd finessed folks on defense and of course they were wrong ..but that day they just lined up and knocked hell out of folks for four quarters.quarters. Namath said years later that Davis and Martin put something on him........what a game.I agree on this game. Sitting in the north stands, McNames and Guthrie made "the tackle" right in front of me, as I recall. The publicity leading up to this game was beyond anything seen in decades; the Chick Graning/Darwin Holt "incident", as the Atlanta press called it, this has to be the biggest GT win in the Dodd era. You young guys can Google Chick Graning/Darwin Holt 1961 game to get a feeling for the emotion that day. "Hate" does not do the emotion justice. This game concluded a year long "war" in the press. Any GT game played since then pales to insignificance.
I was a freshman then and at that game. Most intense football game I have ever been to. "Remember Darwin Holt" and "Namath Can't Do It" were the rallying cries all day long.1962 Ala 6 GT 7. Stopped #1 Ala win streak at 29. Stopped Namath going for two. Ray Charles and the Raylettes that night at the Big Tit. Doesn't get any better.
The '69 Georgia game was definitely a great one and provides even sweeter memories for me. It was the only Tech game my mom ever attended. And although it was not in Atlanta, the Georgia game in '74 which Tech won was the only Tech game my dad ever attended. I should have taken them to more games.....LOL1962 bama
