Why isn’t the media crucifying UGA for throwing bottles?

Because the game didnt get stopped, they didnt hit the coaches or players, didn't force their own Band, dance team, and cheerleaders inside.
It’s still the same concept but of course, Tennessee is the only fanbase that does stuff like this.

Not to mention, we’ve been more screwed than Georgia has.

I always question the logic of:

See, they were a$$holes too!!!! That makes us not so bad......

Two a$$holes both stink, even if one gets more attention than the other.
No one said that it was not bad. They were just pointing out the fact that Tennessee is treated differently than other fan bases by the media, especially ESPN.

Meh, it might be popular conspiracy to say ESPN hates us, but ESPN got a boat load of clicks and their talking heads got lots of views from the TN incident.

They'd have benefited similarly if the GA incident had lasted longer and created "a scene."

Bad news is good news for the media. Always. If they could've milked the GA fans tossing stuff, they would've. It's great for their business.

Have we? You know that how? You have watched every snap and play of every game of theirs? Stop. The laziest argument in sports is "we get picked on by refs." Every team and fan believes that about their team. The truth is just that officiating sucks.
