University of Georgia Celebrates

Earlier this week the President of the University of Georgia Michael Adams announced that this week would be an official celebration of a quarter century of underachievement. In a press release on Monday, he had this to say:

"I am proud to announce that under the misguided direction of Mr. Dooley and Mr. Evans this year we are completing one of the finest periods of successful underachievement in University of Georgia history. Over the past 25 years, despite having one of the nation's top recruiting classes each and every year, and even taking the drastic measures of serious NCAA violations every 4.16 years - the UGA football program has managed to underchieve with unbelievable success, only winning a single conference championship over that timeframe."

He went on to add:

"This accomplishment would not have been possible without the valued assistance of Mr. Spurrier, Mr. Fulmer and especially Mr. Donnan. These men worked extremely hard to waste more high school talent than any program in recent memory, a truly extraordinary task."

Finally, he finished with this:

"What makes this even sweeter is that our supposed step-sister in Atlanta has failed to underachieve at the same rate. Even though they manage to lose to us fairly regularly, they haven't been able to keep the same rate of underchievement, even going so far as to win a National Championship and two conference titles in that same time frame. It's quite an accomplishment for our program to have been able to underachieve at an even higher rate than our rivals."

Herschel Walker was quoted as well:

"God, they've sucked since I left - haven't they?"

Georgia fans have already begun celebrating in style

1 Conference champ for Tech in that time frame. The other one was vacated.

This violates the cardinal rule of parody: BE FUNNY.

Not only was the other one vacated, it was a joke . . . you don't get to claim you "tied" someone for the conference championship when they whipped your ass 34-7 during the regular season.

On the other hand, with all this talk of athletic underachievement and NCAA violations on the part of UGA, I do have to compliment you engineers on your school's architecture department -- that's one hell of a glass house you've built there.

Wait wait... Where is my favorite GT dig on UGA. Talk about all the criminals and bad apples we have and how our coaching staff has no discipline...

As an engineer married to a Tech architect (undergrad and graduate degree), I'm curious to hear you expand on this further. She and I both have fairly strong opinions on where that program has headed in order to gain national prominence.

Sorry to distract from the smack talk, but I really am curious.

Uh, in the past 25 years, Georgia has four conference championships, unless the space-time continuum has been altered and 1980, 1981, and 1982 are no longer within the past 25 years. I know that doesn't stack up to a sole ACC title (in the pre-FSU ACC, no less,) but it's not too shabby. Georgia also has five major bowl appearances during that time (the Cotton Bowl was a major in '83, especially since the opponent was an unbeaten Texas team.) Again, I'm sure that pales in comparison to the litany of wins in the Champs Sports Bowl and Seattle Bowl that have given Georgia Tech the title of best winning percentage in bowl games.
