No. 1: Georgia fans don’t care about the rivalry with Georgia Tech anymore

If ever there was a UGA myth that had no foundation at all, here it is.

Of course Georgia fans care about the rivalry with Georgia Tech…and while beating up on them regularly and letting them take one out of every seven or eight years so that they don’t just take their NetBooks and go home may get a little boring, it doesn’t mean we don’t care.

They’re like our little brother…the ugly little brother who gets picked on at school, who we have to remind teams like Clemson and Florida State,  “Nobody gives the Yellow Jackets the wedgie but us!”. We try to protect them, but they’re just so stubborn.

It’s an ugly, bitter, swig of backwash kind of rivalry that you hate to claim to, but have no choice. Sure, they get a bit uppity at times and think they’re ready to conquer the world….then it all comes crashing down right around the time of midterms usually.

Don’t ever think we don’t care, Jackets…someone has to, because it sure isn’t your own fans.
