As participants in the 2008 Chick-fil-A Bowl, each Georgia Tech player receives $500 in gifts from the bowl. The AJC is reporting that as part of their gift, the players will receive a ring designed by the team’s seniors. The seniors have decided to include the score of their recent 45-42 victory over the Georgia Bulldogs on the ring.
To me, this is an odd decision by the Tech players. Sure they beat Georgia in Athens and snapped a 7-game losing streak. But it was a regular season game, they didn’t play for nor win the ACC title and they are playing in a lower seeded bowl than the Bulldogs.
I guess as a Tech player, it’s a milestone victory. They hadn’t won since 2000, and since 1991 Georgia owns a 14-4 record against them. Georgia Tech can celebrate all they want, but history shows that the Bulldogs have dominated and will likely continue to dominate the Yellow Jackets.
To each his own.
