As the season gets underway, we’d like to offer a big “Thank You” to everyone for helping make Hatefest 2009
a smashing success. We got out some hatred. Made some friends. Lost some others. And overall, we got our true feelings on paper (or web paper).
But in our busy week, we neglected to truly give the UVA loss to William and Mary it’s proper due.
Of course, it was freaking awesome. We are witnessing the low point in the history of UVA football. And lordy lordy does it feel good.
But in reflection this past week, we’ve come to a sad realization: This rivalry has all but ceased to exist.
I mean, they just straight up suck right now. Sure we still hate them and their smug “fans”. But since ’99, Tech is 9-1 against the Hoos. And with Al Groh still at the helm in Charlottesville, a quick turn around does not seem likely.
Can this classic matchup become competitive again? Absolutely. Georgia beat Georgia Tech like 20 times in a row, but the Yellow Jackets eventually turned it around (kind of).
Don’t get us wrong, the rivalry isn’t dead. It will never die. But at the moment, it’s in a coma with few signs of life.
Again, thank you to everyone that read, linked, or told someone about our little festival of hate here at our corner of the facetubes. Please stick around to read about things we like*.
* If we still have Voldemort as OC, expect more hate.
