As I finished penning one article yesterday, all “HECK” broke out in Athens. Head coach Mark Richt and the University of Georgia have parted ways with regards to Richt being the lead dawg of the Georgia football program. So what does this all mean?
In case you missed it or didn’t hear, it was announced just after 12 noon ET on Sunday that Mark Richt would be stepping down, resigning as the head coach of the University of Georgia football program. To discuss this huge news, Bob Miller is joined by Bulldawg Illustrated owner and editor Vance Leavy along with Bulldawg Illustrated writers and contributors Greg Poole, David Rosenberg, and Murray Poole on today’s special BD Illustrated On-Air show.

The game meant nothing to anyone other than a Georgia or a Georgia Tech fan. This was a noon kickoff, televised on one of the several ESPN secondary channels, and the broadcast booth was being occupied by Beth Mowins and Anthony Becht. Not exactly, primetime, on CBS, with “Gary and Verne” making the calls. But hey, when both teams have fallen off the radar and failed to meet even the slightest of expectations predicted by the “so-called” expert prognosticators, what should you expect? Georgia entered their final regular season game with an 8 – 3 record that has left a great deal to be desired to be sure. On the flip side, the Yellow Jackets of Georgia Tech have had to handle a collapse of monumental proportions, coming into Bobby Dodd for the final time in 2015 with a win/loss mark of 3 – 8.

Never underestimate the value of beating Tech. The Baby Boomers among us vividly remember when beating Tech was a rare feat – for a long period of my childhood it did not happen. Georgia vs. Tech was not a happy day for most of the 50’s and early 60’s. Take the ‘W’, there will be other chances to humiliate them.

Georgia’s defense shut down the Yellow Jackets’ triple-option offense for most of the game, limiting the home squad to seven points and 276 yards en route to a 13-7 win at Bobby Dodd Stadium in Atlanta. The Bulldogs fell 3:24 short of registering their first shutout of Georgia Tech (3-9, 1-7) since 1964.
