Pinch Me

Jackets win 45-42 between the hedges, and finish the regular season 9-3.

I still can't quite believe that third quarter comeback, but the long dry spell is finally over. Thank you Coach Paul Johnson for "getting it" about the rivalry, thank you DRad for hiring him, and thank you Yellow Jackets for playing a full 60 minutes and gutting out the win.

Happy now. And I don't have to take any crap from Georgia fans for at least 364 days.

Congrats, Kid! Nothing like a big win to provide lots and lots of happiness -at least 364 days worth anyway!

Thanks, Jeni. It was a long seven years...

consider yourself pinched. Now follow up on Doc's 4th pic post. Hee Hee. I am having fun with this. I was going to tag you but he did. SIGH. Sorry.

Hi Jenny. I'm gonna do the picture tag thingy, but have been a slug for most of the long weekend, winding down from having all that family over. We're down to just one brother still being here and the cats are much happier with that.

Something tells me that Tech fans see 9-3 as a highly successful season, while UGA fans see their 9-3 as a big disappointment.

But if you would have told me last week that Tech was going to beat UGA while only throwing the ball six times, I would have said that you were crazy.

dr s - you hit the nail on the head! The two sets of fans had wildly different expectations going into the season. I couldn't be happier, but I know my Georgia friends are disappointed.

I was not too surprised at the lack of passing game, nor was I surprised that the very first offensive play was a pass. I think we might have thrown more had the weather been different. Usually, defending the run opens up some receivers, but that didn't seem to happen on Saturday.

College ball is just too much of a morass for me to even comment on.

Our Huskers won too in a last minute comeback. It's all because I texted my BIL to gloat that they were going to lose.

LL - I don't really care about the BCS controversies this year. Just happy about how things shaped up for the Yellow Jackets. Who woulda thunk it? 9-3 and #1 in the state!

trin - you are welcome to text me and tell me GT is gonna lose any time you want. I was fighting the urge to go upstairs at halftime (we were 16 points down) and put on the exact same outfit I wore at the Miami game, long underwear and all...

wind down, I just am having a case of being a pain in the ass. LOL. Parts stores, online, lol... oh me.

Congrats on your good football news!

My good football news will be if the Lions can manage to finish the year defeated. ;-)

JennyLu - you're a hoot!

Kat - don't be so hard on Calvin Johnson.
