Yellow Jackets vs. Bulldogs: Live Thread For ‘Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate’

Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

It’s gameday in Atlanta, Ga., and the Yellow Jacket and Bulldog nations will pack Bobby Dodd stadium for one of the most storied (and vicious) college football rivalries in the nation.

Game Time: 3:30 PM ET

Venue: Bobby Dodd Stadium, ATLANTA, GA

Series Record: Georgia Leads 63-39 (5 ties)

Last Meeting: Nov. 22, 2012 UGA 42 – GT 10

Current Line: Georgia by 3.5

TV: ABC

Radio: WYAY 106.7 FM

“To Hell With Georgia”, “To Hell With Tech”, “Tame the Dawgs”, and “Wreck Tech” are just a few of the chants and hashtags that you’ll see and hear throughout this game, as both sides have a lot to win and a lot to lose in this year’s game.

Tech has lost four straight to the Bulldogs, and 11 of the last 12 meetings. Their last win against Georgia game in Paul Johnson’s first year as head coach of the Yellow Jackets in 2008. The Jackets triple-option offense completely stymied the Georgia defense, and the Yellow Jackets won the back-and-forth slugfest 45-42.

But since 2008, it’s been all Bulldogs, winning the last four games by a combined 145-85, and never looking truly in jeopardy of losing the game.

This year the two teams have identical records, and practically identical stats in many respects. Georgia is without star quarterback Aaron Murray, who tore an ACL against Kentucky last week, and Georgia Tech will try to take advantage of a green quarterback (Hutson Mason) who has never been in a game quite like this.

The table is set, and the plates of steaming hate are served. It’s time for “Clean, Old-Fashioned Hate” 2013.

    Just a few hours until game time. Let’s hear some picks!

  • Michael Collins

    Well that was a quick start for the Jackets

  • Michael Collins

    And just like that, it’s 7-0 Jackets.

  • Michael Collins

    Attaochu has his first sack of the game. I’m predicting at least three for him today.

  • Michael Collins

    And Jemea Thomas picks off Huston Mason with his 9th career pick. Excellent work by the Tech defense.

  • Michael Collins

    Smelter. Smoked. Those DBs.

  • Michael Collins

    First quarter analysis. A lot of emotion coming from Tech. Georgia just looks flat. Hutson Mason seems in over his depth at the moment.

  • Michael Collins

    Looks like Georgia’s DBs are getting a bit frustrated with the cut blocks. We’re about one GT score away from brawl time.

  • Michael Collins

    20-0 Tech after being stopped inside the 10 yd line for the first time this season. Small victory for Georgia, but they still have a lot of work to do. Tech looks like the better team right now.

  • Michael Collins

    Don’t forget, Georgia was down 20 to Auburn as well. They have the ability to come back in a hurry. Tech can’t get too comfortable.

  • Michael Collins

    Jackets are getting snowed by this hurry-up offense. Defense looks a little out of sorts.

  • Michael Collins

    Georgia gets on the board with a superhuman leap over the pylon by Todd Gurley. That guy…

  • Michael Collins

    Georgia looked more comfortable up-tempo, and they’ll get the ball to start the second half. Tech will need to make a big stop to keep a 2 possession lead.

  • Dalton Keene

    Finally made it on here Michael.

    • Michael Collins

      Welcome!

      • Dalton Keene

        Surprising first half huh?

        • Michael Collins

          Actually no, if you look at the piece I did about the matchups, it’s unfolding about like I figured.

          • Dalton Keene

            The Georgia fans on twitter are something else tonight lol

  • Michael Collins

    Even if Georgia makes adjustments, I’m not sure their DBs are going to suddenly get better and be able to cover Tech’s receivers.

  • Michael Collins

    Gotta say, I don’t think that was the right call. Should have been a catch and fumble, recovered by Georgia. Bad form, refs.

  • Michael Collins

    Time for a Georgia field goal attempt. Cue the Keystone Cops music for UGA special teams

  • Michael Collins

    Well that was just a bad possession overall for the Jackets

  • Michael Collins

    No lead is safe….

  • Michael Collins

    Tech needs to be able to play option-ball right now, and chew up some clock on the way to a TD. Need to keep that Georgia offense standing on the sideline.

  • Michael Collins

    Tech’s secondary is starting to show the weakness they’ve become famous for this season

  • Michael Collins

    Gurley being Gurley. He’s all the difference in the world to Georgia’s offense.

  • Michael Collins

    HORRIBLE decision by Lee. Just throw it away or take the sack.

  • Michael Collins

    Attaochu with sack #2….

  • Michael Collins

    Looks like free football on the Flats

  • Michael Collins

    I’m not sure that was the time to reach into the trick-playbook.

  • Michael Collins

    Vad Lee’s score answered by Gurley. More OT anyone?

  • Michael Collins

    Ball…game. Oh well.
