It's 3am & I wanna go to bed...

Can we do it?

November 17, 1962. That's the last time we beat a top 5 opponent at Historic Grant Field. Notice there was no Bobby Dodd Stadium as Mr. Dodd was busy coaching the Jackets to an historic 7-6 victory over Bear Bryant that afternoon (Howard Schnellenberger & Gene Stallings were also on the Bama staff). Bama entered a heavy favorite led by Joe Namath & Lee Roy Jordan but it was the Jackets, led by Billy Lothridge, Bill Curry, & George Morris (according to Dodd the finest player he ever coached, & that's saying something) who ruined Bama's national championship hopes with a victory on the Flats. Been a long time coming....In fact, a victory today would send us to 6-1 for the second consecutive season, the first time we've started 6-1 in back-to-back year's since 1955-56. Here's to making history today...


  1. Here's to it Indeed !!

    In totaling 309 rushing yards, Tech became the first team to surpass the 300-yard mark against Virginia Tech since 1996.

    Outstanding effort all around tonight. Huge, huge win.

    key stat: time of possession GT 38m, VT 22m.

    THWG !

  2. Was an amazing night of football... Not the absolute best I've ever seen, but enough to solidify our upward motion in both the conference and the nation... I hope some recruits were there. Waiting with bated breath for the game analysis...
