Quote of the day...
From The Dawg-gone Blog:
"A hatred for Tech is one that includes hatred for ugly women (when you can find a woman at Tech), terrorists, and nerds. That's called a "win-win," people."
If you have the time, check out this article on former dawg Jake Scott. It is a great read and Jake will be the honorary captain for the game on Saturday. This guy is/was a real bad ass; reminds me of ole Bill Brasky.
Sun Sentinel Story: Where's Jake Scott? We found him.
...And to Hell with GA Tech!
Four Notes on a Trumpet: The Tech Experience
I know most of y'all have seen this...but here it is anyway...
Four Notes on a Trumpet: The Tech Experience
Gameday on North Avenue
You wake up in the top bunk, snug within your Star Trek bedsheets, with that feeling in the pit of your stomach. That pounding feeling, that giddy, nauseous rush that can mean only one thing. You rush to the potty and take care of business. The feeling goes away. But something about tinkling--the colors, the sounds--makes you remember: Yellow Jacket football today!
You put on your best yellow sweater and yellow knee-socks, though you call them "gold," natch. Then, moving to the dresser, you specially polish your thick glasses, adding one final flourish--fresh tape wrapped around the bridge. Speaking of bridges, your braces are also polished to a fine sheen, new zits are popped, and you're lookin' GOOD! You're lookin' JACKET.
Heart pounding, you race up the steps from your parents' basement. Mumsy and Pops are reading mail from the old home country in New Jersey where they hope to retire someday. You slip out the door quietly and pedal your 3-speed through the crisp autumn air, gameday flags a-flying from the handlebars. And there it is, just ahead--the MARTA station. It won't be long now!
You climb onto a southbound train, your eyes scan the car, and--yes! There, sitting next to the chatty tranvestite--a man wearing YELLOW! You make your way over and wave your pom poms at him and giggle, and he says, "$#%^ off, %$$^&!" And now you feel it more strongly than ever--the essence of being a Tech fan. You giggle again more shrilly, dance away, then slide around safely under the seats until the stop at North Avenue, tee-heeing for all you're worth as you elude the grasp of your tormentor and his switchblade. It's sort of like Frodo hiding from the Black Riders, right here on MARTA!
You disembark at North Avenue, snatching quarters from a few homeless men, and take a deep breath of downtown Atlanta air--Tech air! Now you see swarms of other Jackets--two of them, three of them. It's no wonder the stadium had to be expanded. You pause on the bridge over the Downtown Connector to indulge in a Tech tradition: spitting on cars passing underneath. It's a massive traffic jam of red vehicles heading north, and you nail an RV with a big loogie from your morning Yoo Hoo Soda. Tee hee! Saliva, the GT calling card!
Then you're on campus, a block from the stadium. You take in the grand pageantry that is game day. It's the gray, smoggy sky; the deep blue of the police siren; the giggling of the frat boys enjoying an impromptu tickle pile on the sidewalk. It's the sound of gunfire. It's the beautiful women with their thick makeup, standing on the street corners and bantering with the passing cars. It's the voice of Kim King, talking and talking and talking in his one-note melodic range; Wes Durham screaming about a one-yard gain. It's the giant rubber bee, George O'Leary's old bedroom toy, patched all over, making funny farting sounds as the air oozes out yet again. It's Flag Boy, the aspiration of all Tech males. Tee hee!
Above all, it's four notes on a trumpet. You hear them now, playing the hallowed music, the sacred music, the Hymn of the Bee. There it is now, and you lift your voice to join in, warm tears fogging your thick glasses. The whole stadium sings solemnly:
"When you say Bud..."
Those four notes on a trumpet, your call to Jackethood, setting your yellow heart aflutter. Deep down you know this is the year--the year you beat Duke AGAIN--you OWN Duke. The year you road-trip to a BRAND SPANKIN'-NEW STARTUP BOWL for the holidays. The year your first pubic hairs break the surface. This sacred moment cannot last. Someday, by the Great Pointed Ears of Leonard Nimoy, you will be in New Jersey. In Michigan. In North Dakota. Someday you will buy your parents a house with a bigger basemment for you to live in. But in your heart, you'll always be a Tech Guy--a proud drop in the endless river of yellow!

One of the greatest economist of the past century passed away today. Milton Friedman was a remarkable intellectual who introduced and/or advocated free market polices based on individual liberty. I learned about Dr. Friedman while studying economics at UGA (that’s the dotwu connection) and his thoughts and ideas were influential to me.

No need to say anything...
Or maybe I will:
When you have a back that runs for 83 yards on 10 carries in the first half, why in the hell does he only get the ball twice in the 2nd half??? This is the reason Stafford looks like hell the picture above. A true freshmen QB should not have 30 pass attempts per game when the team has a guy like KREGG running the ball. Give Kraig 25-30 carries and let’s see what happens; it can't be any worse then the offensive production of the last 5-games.
just give it to Kregg...
For the first time in 33-years, we lost to Vandy and Kentucky in the same season. Every facet of Georgia Football is struggling right now.
Much has been written about all this so I'm just going to stop...
Maybe we can pull the upset against Auburn??? (Reich give me a call)

Houston Chronicle Sports Writer Links to DOTWU
The Georgia-Florida Weekend prompted the highest traffic ever on DOTWU as John Lopez of the Houston Chronicle linked to the site on his October 27th posting. The second link in his post that says “without the slightest protest” is the DOTWU link; you can view the post here: Lopez @ Large: College Picks – Don’t Call it A Cocktail Party!!!
Despite the attempts to stop them, Cocktails still flowed...
I was glad the Dawgs kept it close and we really had a shot to win the game. The trend will be reversed next year. Check out Kyle King’s great post on the Georgia-Florida series: “A Bit of Perspective on The Georgia-Florida Game”
The Dawgs will soon return to their glory days in the Georgia-Florida series when these two were Kings...
As a result of the increased traffic last weekend, DOTWU surpassed 1,000 visitors on Sunday morning as someone from Houston Texas paid a visit.
As the man says: "Dawgs Of The World Unite..."
With no TV Coverage, everyone will just have to dial into Munson this weekend for the game. It should be a close game; both teams seem to be playing on an equal level (very painful for me to type that statement). If we can just get a “W” this weekend and then steal another “W” from the Auburn or Tech game, perhaps we can avoid the Weed Eater Bowl!!
Y’all have a great weekend…
