View Full Version : I'm rushing the field if we beat FSU, screw you guys

I can't believe what I'm reading in the other thread.

If VT loses, we win, FSU wins this week, and FSU comes into Tech next week with one loss, and we get College Gameday at Tech, and we beat FSU on nationwide television, I'm rushing the field. Screw you guys. I'll do it alone.

The emotional weight of all of those many, wretched close losses to FSU on BS penalties and dumb freaking luck is enough to take down those goal posts by sheer brain waves alone. I don't need yall.

We had 1998, where Bobby Bowden called a press conference to say his game plan was to late hit Joe Hamilton until he was wounded and couldn't play. The we scored first. Then they late hit him every play. Then he left the game. Then we lost. FSU went on to win the ACC.

We had 1999, where we put up 510 total yards of offense on FSU in Doak Campbell, which is still a record that stands to this day, 400 of which Joe was personally responsible for, where Kelley Campbell had his jaw broken by a cheap shot, went to the locker room, had it shot full of novacane and wired shut, then came back out onto the field and caught a 1 handed TD catch, as a true freshman. Then we lost the game by three points on a phantom personal foul call that nobody has ever explained. FSU went on to win the National Championship.

There was 2000, where we were drastic underdogs, but were driving late to win the game. Went for it on 4th and 5, passed to a wide open TE over the middle, who was completely decked a full half second before the ball got there. Tech fans even cheered knowing we'd gotten the first down. No flag. The only highlight of that game that made Sportscenter was of the no-call, where they mentioned how FSU dodged a bullet on terrible officiating. FSU went on to win the ACC.

There was 2001, where we were ranked very highly preseason, and poised to demolish a struggling FSU team until some asshole wrecked an airplane into a building and the NCAA decided to cancel football for the weekend. The following weekend UNC beat that struggling FSU team, in the win we should have had, while we had a bye and watched. The weekend following that we hadn't played in a month, and Clemson came back to beat us on Woody Danzler BS, and our whole season started to fall apart. We closed it with a loss to FSU after they'd finally got their sh*t together, a loss to UGA, and losing our coach to ND.

There was 2002, where we took it to them as drastic underdogs and only lost because of a lucky interception in the end zone as time expired, that would have tied the game. FSU went on to win the ACC.

There was 2003, where we were leading 13-0 half way into the 4th quarter, not to mention being held out of the goal on a 4th down stand when we went for it and didn't make it by a half yard, which would have made it 20-0, then they came back and won 14-13. FSU went on to win the ACC.

And that's the last time we played them. Bobby Bowden campaigned to make sure GT and FSU were in different divisions because he knew his time was coming, so we didn't get to play them for 5 years while they stunk it up. And now "they're back" and don't stink, and they're finally back on our schedule.


AND YOU GUYS AREN'T GOING TO RUSH THE FIELD IF WE BEAT THEM?


IF GEORGIA IS THE DEVIL, THEN FSU IS SURELY MEPHISTOPHILES. WHERE DO YOU THINK RICHT CAME FROM? FSU IS THE SOURCE OF EVERYTHING EVIL IN COLLEGE FOOTBALL, AND HAS BEEN OUR PERSONAL DEMON FOR A DECADE. DON'T MAKE BE BRING THE 1990s INTO THIS.

It could happen. They did coctail party last year, haven't done an ACC game yet this year, and have done Georgia and Florida quite a bit already.


Our students of today need to be educated why FSU sucks, and why we hate them. It goes back before 1998, but that's as good a point as any to draw the line.

Forward that to your friends or something.

After reading the end of the other thread and this one, I predict disappointment in a lot of GT fan's futures. We are not going to finish 7-1 in the conference.

GT is still a very flawed team that has beaten ONE good team (BC) and a bad team under difficult circumstances (Clem). We have done something that many teams haven't - beat everyone that we were supposed to beat. But, IMO, every game left is a toss up and I don't expect to win them all (which means we'll need VT to lose 2 more - and I don't see it with their remaining schedule).

I hope you guys talking about about the ACC-CG and using terms like "nearly" and "virtually" locked up aren't being serious.

No it won't. It'll look cool. I don't care if they're unranked, or if we're in the top ten. This isn't about ranking, and it's not about getting an upset. It's about PAYBACK, THAT'S BEEN A LONG TIME COMING.

I don't understand how the possibility of beating FSU to assume a lead in the ACC race, versus the possibility of losing to FSU AGAIN to have them take the lead in the ACC race AGAIN doesn't get every single one of you guys completely steamed up. Mix in that BDS is going to be chocked full of A-holes doing the tommahawk chop, probably with foam axes that say BRAVES on the side because they're all A-hole Atlanta sidewalk fans, in our own öööö stadium ...

That's why I said "IF."

If VT beats FSU this weekend, then there's no point in rushing the field. If we lose to UVA this weekend then there's no point in rushing the field. If we lose to FSU then obviously there's no point. But if **** all happens in the way we want it to in the next two weeks, as low a probability as that might be, then hell freaking yes I'm rushing the field.

If you rush the field beej I'm going to as well, but only so I can find you and punch you in the face. You'll be easy to spot because you'll be wearing saffron.

Has nothing to do with living in the past. My problem is rushing the field vs. F$U period. One game against a has-been team with a has-been coach. Not a Coastal division clinching win, no other importance other than keeping us in the Coastal division chase (or lead if GT and F$U both win this weekend). How's that for living in the now?

Actually, I was living in central FL back then. But I was watching on TV and I did get quite angry. Does that count?

You see, in those days, FSU was my friend. They were the nuke that kept the SEC chestbeating UF fans from holding the upper hand. Hate and blood? Nah, not so much. That's reserved for UGAG.

WWCPJD?Assuming there are authorities guarding the goal posts, he would use misdirection and send the student body to the north goalpost which would take the attention of all the guards and then he'd dismantle the south goalpost by himself. By the time he reached the north one, the students will have taken care of the guards.

The goal posts will come down and from them will be crafted bowls in which Paul Johnson will feed the Tech nation a stew containing the bones, hearts and broken dreams of the Florida State Seminoles.

I was listening to GT/FSU in the parking lot at Atlanta -Fulton County Stadium getting ready for Game 1 of the World Series --which the Braves won 3-1 on a Damon Berryhill 3-run homer in the 6th.

This was the first game between the two since 1975, and GT held a 7-0-1 record against the non-Bowdon 'Noles.

That zebra that botched that call was Dan Post, an O'Keefe HS grad that went to school with my dad. Post grew up a huge GT fan and my dad ran into him at a Christmas reunion gathering for O'Keefe later that year. Post admitted that he blew the call and felt bad about it.

First off, lets not look past UVA.

I'm not rushing the field because of 1998 -2003. I'm rushing the field FOR 1992!!! If you want to talk about FSU wins over GT, lets talk about their very first win over GT. In 1992!

It was my sophmore year of school. This game was the beginning of the END of the Bill Lewis era. We were 4-0, FSU was ranked #1 in the country and 4-0. With our senior QB Shawn Jones and GT up 24-13 (maybe someone can clarify the actual score), FSU scores with less than two minutes left to make it 24-20.

With about 1:46 remaining on the clock, FSU onside kicks. The GT player recovers the ball on the ground and a full two seconds later gets hit (AFTER HE WAS ALREADY DOWN!) ball comes loose and FSU recovers. With no time remaining on the clock Charlie Ward hits a player in the corner of the endzone, kicks the extra point for a 27-24 victory. That was the first knife of many, but easily the deepest that FSU stuck in us.

After the game, Bill Lewis still in shock, did the one thing no coach should ever do in that situation, he blamed the players in the locker room in the post game radio show. He lost the team at that moment and never recovered.

History may be history, but we will look like the biggest idiots who ever lived if we rush the field against a team ranked lower (or really close) to us. If we haven't lost a game by then, we'll be 8-1 counting the win. Now, if the Georgia game was at home this year, I could understand rushing the field after the win.

IF we are lucky enough to win, we need to act like we SHOULD have beaten them, like we EXPECTED to beat them. Let's act like we've been there before, gentlemen.

IF we are lucky enough to win, we need to act like we SHOULD have beaten them, like we EXPECTED to beat them. Let's act like we've been there before, gentlemen.

No. That's how players should act. Fans should act as excited/happy/crazy as they want to be.

Last time we rushed the field was Auburn. They were ranked, but the big deal was that we hadn't beaten them since 1978 (is that right?). Therefore it would be logical to rush for a team we haven't beaten since before that.

If we are arguing about which to do, I would suggest after the Miami game if it clinches the division for us and puts us at 10-1.

The reason we rushed the field against Auburn is that they were ranked in the top 10. It was also a big win because Reggie Ball had been heavily recruited by Auburn, and then told he would never play. That's when Tech came a'callin'. I just think we should set our sights higher for field-rushes, guys.

That's because you're young. You don't remember the pain.

The reason we rushed the field vs Auburn was because our previous game was a loss to Fresno State in a crappy bowl where we had no QB after our first year of the Gailey Emotional Roller Coaster Ride, and we thought we were finally off of it.

Imagine if you will, for whatever reason, we took a 5 year break from playing Georgia, starting this year. They'd owned us 7 years in a row, just like 2001 through 2007, then we quit playing them. But then they sucked for 5 years straight, and we knew for sure we could waste them if given the chance, but then the year they were finally back on our schedule they were good again.

Envision that. The kind of hate you have for Georgia now - that you SHOULD have anyway - that is the hate you should feel for FSU. That hate. That searing, depths of your guts hate. The kind of hate that could bore holes in mountains and vaporize villages of orphaned children on the other side, who's only crime is that they received UGA clothing and other paraphernalia from the Red Cross, and were unlucky enough to be in proximity of your all powerful, Chi focused Hate. Emperor Palpatine hate. Dark side of the Force hate. Blue Fracking LIGHTNING hate.

Hating FSU is not some Hokey Religion, and storming the field is not some Ancient Weapon. Hating Florida State surrounds us and penetrates us. It binds the galaxy together.

I find your lack of faith disturbing.

Not a thing. The inbreds were too stunned by Brad Chambers' heroics that they didn't pay attention/didn't care.

Seems like we got ridiculed in the media afterward, but it was worth it.

To really make a statement, the field rush needs to take place at half time or the end of the 3rd quarter. After the game is too predictable, plus enforcement officials have been lulled into protecting at the end of the game. A mass assault at an atypical time would be classic and make national TV. Just make sure that you have a good disguise, so peers and bosses can't identify you.

As much as they've been all over the collective jocks of that conference, they don't just go to SEC games because they're there. There's a decent chance of them showing up.

If Georgia loses tomorrow, we win and VT wins, I'd probably put money on them coming to our game.

That field-rushing meant so much, when you think about it. We weren't just excited over a big win over FSU. If that what it, the rush was borderline unwarranted. However, a couple of things combined to make this not only completely warranted, but really IMPORTANT for our TEAM and FANBASE as a whole.

1. The history of the series. I'm sure I don't need to remind you of that.

2. The consequences of the game. The best comment I heard last night was, "Georgia Tech DOESN'T win that game." Usually we are the team getting our hearts crushed on the final play of a drive to take the lead.

3. The momentum. Although I'm still holding my breath, the team's ACCCG hopes are still alive.

4. The Buy-in. After last week, we heard a lot about Chan. I think we now know just how much our team's attitude has changed in just a single year. We can break down how we almost gave the game away. BUT, last year, I think this team DOES give that game away.

This game (and the field-rushing) was important because the fans and team have bought into our new system. The team knows that if they trust in the system and play their butts off, then big wins will come. The fans let them know that we've bought in, and are with them every step of the way.

I yelled at Beej for suggesting a field-rushing, but perhaps he was just a little wiser than the rest of us for a day. Beej, I apologize. I had a great time on the field. It was amazing.

Yeah, and I think they might have appeared out of thin air. I looked over one second and there was nobody around the goal posts and when I looked back to the game and over at the posts again, they were protected by three branches of the US Military.
