    Winning a big rivalry game isn’t just about the the game itself; it’s a year-round conversation topic that follows die-hard fans like a halo or a stench, depending on the game’s outcome. It tints every discussion at the water cooler and sports bar for 364 days, and the victors manage to work in a mention of that win as often as they can. That’s why it’s important not to shoot all your bullets at once. Subtlety is the key to the psychological torture that Georgia Tech fans will be able to inflict this week and throughout the next year.

    MOst decent(use that term loosely) ga fans will debate on the game and give credit where its due but.........they are already throwing MR under the bus....wins nine a year and two losses in eight yers vs us and they want his head......the blame willl be on his head not on how bad they played and how good we handled them.

    Yes, they are extremely delusional about the talent on their team. I was flabbergasted at how optimistic their predictions were for the Dwags this year. I mean, they lost four games last year and they thought they'd be playing for all the marbles? Really? With the same D? Until Gurley got hurt, they were a legit top 10 team (about 9th, I'd say), but after he went down, they were no more then good.

    It's strange. "Motivated reasoning" I think the shrinks call it.

    I tried to buy two of an $11.00 item that was 50% off in a walmart in athens. It was not in the computer, the manager and cashier tried doing the math (had to write it out on paper) and tried charging me $8. I calmly explained that it should be $11 plus tax...their minds were blown.

    My gf at the time was a uga grad, she wouldn't make eye contact with me as this was happening.

    I went to a pet store in Athens once where the cash register was down and the cashier had to use a calculator. She was literally in tears.

    That's probably the best part. It's like, "Uh, honey how long are you gonna look at the 5hr energy displays?"

    Wait…they left one off:

    Step Zero
    Speak using only monosyllabic words, avoiding the use of complex sentence structures that involve conjunctions or prepositional phrases.

    Step 4- find a topic you can both agree on, like "that Richt is one stupid SOB huh?" Or "Wow, chubb is definitely not the next Hershael Walker is he?"

    Bulldogs are the 42nd smartest breed out of 44 evaluated.

    I hate to see the other two.

    Yeah, that's what UGA grads call "stress" on the job. These idiots couldn't last a day at GT.
