Emory Hate Zone

Bringing back the rivalry. Time for some Emory hate.

The Emory Wheel news elaborates on the long standing hate between the two programs.-

"The story of Emory’s missing football program begins not with a football team (there never was a team to begin with) but at a pair of baseball games against the University of Georgia in 1884 and 1886. Emory took a beating on both occasions, losing 17-5 and 12-1, according to a history of Emory athletics called Athletics for All written by Clyde Partin, one of Emory’s foremost physical educators."

They have finally gotten their revenge, but at a cost.

    NJ, like Georgia, has very different areas. Last week I spent time with cranberry growers. Very remote areas in the Pinelands. They need 10 acres of woods per acre of cranberries to manage water used in flooding for harvest and winter protection. NW part of the State like north Georgia.

    Populous areas bc of NYC and Philly and Shore. Very proud of their Ag and moniker the Garden State. Big event this past Tu in Wildwood.

    I spent a lot of time in the Clinton area. It was beautiful. Small towns and rolling hills.

    As I recall, they're the Emory Tea Sippers.

    I'm a Georgia graduate but I attended Emory as an undergraduate before transferring and have a good many friends from back then many of whom were and still are huge Georgia fans. Very good and nice people. When I was at Emory most of the people I knew were from Georgia, but the school has changed a lot since then.

    Go, Dawgs!

    Do they take salt with their tea @JimWallace ?

    As a student, I signed up for a ride along program in an ambulance helicopter. I got to stand on the roof of Emory. That's all I got.

    I'm ignorant to the salt and NJ thing. Can someone explain?

    Edit: Never mind, I read the article.

    I've never thought of The Dead has being a NE thing. If anything I would think they'd be associated with the west coast since they came out of San Francisco.

    When I read it I thought someone got screwed over by a Dr. or something from the Emory hospital.

    @RxDawg - HA neither did I! If I had, I might of gone to a different school.

    But, going from 24 hrs of Dead at EU to the music of Athens in the early 80's was almost worth the transfer on its own!

    Good one, sir.

    If we had a "made me laugh" button you would get one of those, too.

    The students were not Emory students but Emory's Oxford College out in Covington. Like comparing UGA to the UGA Griffin outpost.

    Oxford College has a metric ****-ton more intersectional feminist wokeness than Emory.

    Incidentally, I'd let young Mr. Lu off on the grounds of tempory insanity due to hormonal rage. Obviously he was just trying to get laid.

    I attended a George Clinton/P Funk show at a mixer for Emory freshmen once. That was a strange evening.
