Is Georgia Tech Really Georgia Football's Biggest Rival?

UGA Athletic Director Greg McGarity tells an Atlanta sports talk radio station that it's the Yellow Jackets the Bulldogs most want to beat in football each year.

It's Florida week for Georgia football, but UGA Athletic Director Greg McGarity had another team on his mind Tuesday.

Midtown Patch reports that McGarity told AM-790 The Zone that the University of Georgia considers Georgia Tech to be its biggest rival.

“I say Georgia Tech,” McGarity said on Mayhem in the AM, while admitting that some Bulldog fans might put schools such as Florida, Auburn and Tennessee ahead of the Jackets. “Georgia Tech has been the biggest rival for the University of Georgia for I’m not sure how long. … You can take your pick, but I don’t think there’s any question that the biggest rivalry for all Georgia fans is the Georgia Tech rivalry.”

For more of what McGarity said, see the full story on Midtown Patch.

Since Ga. Techs exit of the SEC to the ACC the drivel seems to have lost some luster over the years and dose not seem as meaningful as it once did. The Florida, Tennessee and Auburn rivals seem to carry more meaning. Especially the Georgia Florida rival. Tech is our inner state rival but in my openion Florida is our biggest rival.

My opinion is the biggest rival is Florida........ S.E.C. is the only thing that matters & this games winner almost always goes on to SEC championship game!
