Before the annual rivalry game before the Yellow Jackets and Bulldogs, Pickren, whose LinkedIn profile shows he is a computer engineering major with a computer science minor, allegedly hacked into UGA's website and posted a message on the university calendar: "Sat., November 29, 2014/ 12:00 pm/ Get Ass Kicked by GT."
Pickren apparently didn't cover his tracks very well, because an investigation by UGA police turned up enough evidence to submit to a grand jury.
Pickren was charged with felony computer trespass, an offense that carries a maximum punishment of 15 years in prison and $50,000 fine.
At least Georgia Tech won the game.
