Did you know that a toaster will not survive a trip off a third-story balcony? I'm the guy who found that out about halfway through the third quarter of the '06 Georgia-Colorado game. I'm 35 going on 7, I'm a cog in the communications/fund-raising machine of a major state university that is not my alma mater, and I live and die (and occasionally go absolutely bug-nuts insane) with the Georgia Bulldogs. Surprisingly enough, I generally have a good sense of humor about it, too, but our mascot Uga and the 1999 UGA-GT game are absolutely off limits. I will fight you, and I fight dirty.

Georgia Vs. Georgia Tech: The Manic-Depressive Preview Gives Thanks For Family, Football, And Superiority Over The Jackets

Georgia Vs. Georgia Tech: The Ramblin' Wreck, Stuck In Reverse

Tech fans love to denigrate Bulldog Nation as rednecks, but their own school's façade of innovation disguises policies that are as regressive as anything on a major college campus today.

Remembering Larry Munson: Sometimes Greatness Doesn't Need A Script
