Some popular and rapidly growing trends in college football after big wins these days are dance videos by head coaches, smack talk by a team’s official Twitter account, and R-rated language by coaches in either press conferences or “accidentally released” videos.
Why is that? Because these things after a big win are wildly popular with the fan base, and prospective recruits. For example, 20-30 years from now, LSU fans are far more likely to remember coach Ed Orgeron’s “Roll Tide, (explicative) you” postgame pep talk after beating Alabama than anything from the actual game.
Now this brings us to UGA: After the Bulldogs put in-state rival Georgia Tech on blast on Saturday with the 52-7 win, the official Twitter account of the Georgia athletics department sent out a hilarious and creative tweet:
It says, among other things, “404 error” with, of course, 404 being an area code for Georgia Tech and Atlanta. It also reads #WRTS, which means “We Run This State” – the words that appeared on several signs that UGA players carried around Georgia Tech’s stadium after the game on Saturday to the pleasure of many of the team’s fans. Those signs are an annual tradition.
Props for UGA’s creative tweet but for many of the team’s fans, it is unlikely to top the #HBTFD declaration by Kirby Smart in his press conference after beating Auburn. That may be remembered by UGA fans as long as Orgeron’s locker room speech.
