There are all sorts of reasons to despise Georgia Tech and it's legions of delusional fans. Like the constant references to "Thuga" from a crowd which has had star players arrested in the process of smuggling almost 100 pounds of marijuana. Or the fact that they are certain Georgia must be cheating, while conveniently forgetting that they're currently on an extended probation for lack of institutional control, including contacting recruits impermissibly only days after school officials met with the NCAA committee on infractions.

But my reason is a little more basic: I just want a good night's sleep. You see every time Georgia completes back-to-back wins over the Engineers in football my dog stays up all night howling at the moon in some sort of primitive victory celebration. 2009 we won without incident. 2010? Pandemonium. 2011 nothing. 2012 my neighbors called the cops. Last year was nice obviously, what with coming from behind to beat the Jackets with a quarterback making his first start and all, but I dread what this year may hold.

I shudder to think about what he might do if Tech ever won back-to-back games in the series, but I've only had him for 13 years.

It's Georgia Tech Hate Week, friends. Go 'Dawgs!!!
