Georgia Tech vs. georgia History On A Graph

Tech's all-time win percentage against Georgie since the inception of a professional head coach at Tech.

I put together a similar chart for hoops in 2010. The chart kinda shows the slow decline Tech has seen against Georgie since departure from the SEC. How much of a decline, you ask? Tech is 12-35 against the dogs since leaving the SEC. I think Craig will agree that it wasn't purely a function of departing the SEC but more related to the coaching carousel as Tech fans tried to replace the irreplaceable in Bobby Dodd. Coaches following Dodd had varying levels of success ranging from the zany Pepper Rodgers to the ultimate dud Bill Lewis all the way to the meteoric rise of Bobby Ross.

Unfortunately, Tech has yet to latch on to any particular coach since Bobby Dodd. In my conversation with Pepper Rodgers, he seemed like a genuine Tech man. I think his tenure was still too proximate to Dodd's and the fan expectations were still a little unrealistic. Fans who were around at the time can correct me if I'm wrong but Bud Carson and Pepper Rodgers appeared to be the two guys most likely to not have left Tech for bigger programs or the NFL if they ever ended up winning big. Perhaps more patience could've been afforded them? Any thoughts on the subject out there?
