Georgia strength and conditioning director Joe Tereshinski has conveyed to the team this week his feelings for Georgia Tech.
“He just hates Tech with all his might and blood and everything,” quarterback Aaron Murray said. “He loves Georgia. I don’t know anyone who loves Georgia more than Coach T, that’s for sure.”
Tereshinski was a starting center on the 1975 Cotton Bowl team and the 1976 SEC champion team, and he has been a part of the Bulldogs’ athletic program and football staff since.
Coach Mark Richt said Tereshinski “is passionate about this game, so he wants to put his two cents in, which is great.” Since classes are out this week, the 20-hour rule isn’t in effect, allowing more time for daily talk about the rivalry.
“We have an opponent coming here that probably hates us more than any other opponent,” linebacker Christian Robinson said. “It’s probably mutual.”
