    Outside of Saturday's game with Temple (which should remain the focus) and the Braves push to clinch, there is obviously a very large sport event in Georgia this weekend.

    I would very much like to not be inundated with articles and blogs and radio segment after radio segment praising Georgia football on Monday. Looking at the game logically, is there a way ND escapes with a W or even beats their ass?

    I would very much like to not be inundated with threads about other teams on the Tech message board.

    Our game with Temple is next Saturday (28th).

    The only way ND has a chance is if their defense is incredibly good. Not sure if it is or not so just hoping that it is. I don't see ND scoring more than 20.

    And as far as threads about not GT, I could use a break - speaking only for myself, of course.

    To be fair, the board is full of great college football fans and we all discuss coaches and games that have nothing to do with Tech.

    I don't think the topic is out of line, but if the moderators deem it bad, I'll apologize and will take my ban accordingly.

    Pretty sure no one in that raging ööööhole will have a chance against the asteroid I'm pulling for when it hits.

    They are capable of pulling off the upset, maybe a 3 in 10 chance.

    Who cares about the Dwags? I personally guarantee that we do not lose to Temple this weekend.

    You know, they have been hearing all year and ALL WEEK how bad the mutts are going to run all over them and beat them. And that they can't ever beat someone worth a crap. You don't think that's a motivator? On paper ugag should beat them easily but I think the alter boys make a game of it.

    Notre Dame is no Murray State.

    One of the few times I will pull for the Leprechaun. With that said, they will get beat like a red headed step child.

    It was a close game last time, and it was pretty much a UGA home game anyway. Other than QB, I'm not sure the dwags are stronger at any position now than they were then.

    On the other hand, Notre Dame under Kelly virtually never wins these games.

    Early lines favor Bye State by 6 over GT.

    ND has a better chance of beating UGA than UGA will winning a NC this year and beating Clemson or LSU. And after Fromm leaves, Dawgs will be scratching their heads for decades about why the last team to win a NC in this state is Georgia Tech.

    ND probably has a better chance of winning than the oddsmakers gave the Citadel in their game against us.

    Yes, 14.5 is less than 26. Glad we've established that.
