    The OB game at #2 has the link to the full game video. Here's a highlight reel:

    I agree with you on Webb. It was obvious Webb had some of the squatest DL that did a good job getting under our pads and stopping the Bback dive. The game looked lost and then on a broken 79 yard screen pass we win the game. Could have ruined the season and yet it didn't. Lots of anguish by fellow Tech fans at work Monday but I was kind of giddy we had won. A W is a W. Was it ugly - yes but did we find a way to win - yes. Booker getting a first down late was also miraculous. We go on to beat UGA 45-42 and a successful season. Lost to Webb and I think season would have likely unraveled.

    I really like your list but for me the FSU 49-44 win would have to go much higher - right behind the three UGA wins and Orange Bowl. That game was a war where it was a question of who could ever get a stop. We gashed a great FSU team and then the Nesbitt rip the ball away play was icing on the cake. Beating FSU down there proved to me we would be a force under CPJ. The UGA win the year before helped but that FSU game was one of the meanest, nastiest games I ever saw.

    And Florida State played their traditional role as graceless losers and punk bitches to the hilt. The end of the game was full of late hits and general bullshit, FSU clearly and deliberately trying to injure one of the players that had just run roughshod over them, while ACC refs deepthroated their whistles.

    öööö like that is why beating Florida State will never lose its flavor for me. I had to spend far too long watching us lose to those twats while they pulled their typical thug öööö, I want to find a new way to break their ööööing hearts every time we play.

    It's these kind of wise words coming from leftists like yourself that give me hope for our nation.

    I've updated the list of CPJ's now 76 wins at Georgia Tech. Only 5 wins to add, highlighted by the Virginia Tech game obviously:

    20. Virginia Tech, 28-22
    37. Wake Forest, 38-24
    46. North Carolina, 33-7
    56. Pittsburgh, 35-17
    65. Jacksonville St., 37-10

    Sometimes, including the NC/PITT rankings, beating a rival is more important and a better win than beating a slightly better team. Even though Pitt is probably a better victory, whipping UNC was a lot more fun.

    I've been to 9/20.

    Also, would you put this VT victory over 2009 Wake??

    I was kind of surprised to see Duke on the list. A reminder of when we actually beat them.

    Yes. Vt was significantly better than us, certainly our marquee win. We should have wiped the floor with Wake. The only reason it's listed as high as it is is because it was a dramatic game

    VT was not significantly better than GT, yet they went 9-3 and Tech went 5-6, and therein lies the real shame of the season. Take away a chop block, and Tech would've been 4 yards away from a 28-9 lead that day. VT beat West Virginia, yes, but because they have a rival within the conference, they were able to schedule 3 cupcakes elsewhere . They did have a lower floor, they were incapable of giving up 40 to UVA or getting blown out by Duke, but the two teams really weren't all that different - one made winning plays (like their 4-and-out goal line stand against Pittsburgh), the other did not.

    19/20 for me. The only CPJ game I’ve missed was the USC Sun Bowl, and I had tickets and the trip booked. Got sick as hell at the last minute and couldn’t make the trip.

    In my book, there is no bigger difference.
