Acronym for:
Get After Their Asses

Originally coined by the Legendary Erk Russell, former Head Coach for the Georgia Southern Eagles back in the eighties. Promoted aggressiveness in pursuing victory over the opposing team. Falsely fans of the University of Georgia Bulldogs continually attempt to claim ownership of this term due to his time there as defensive coordinator. However, despite his attempts to use it with them, they never adopted the term until long after his success at Georgia Southern in an attempt at revisionist history. It did not gain a life of it's own until he included it as one of the many traditions he started at GSU that continue to this day.

Derived from Alligator. 'Gata' is slang for Gator
The alligator stays hidden in the water until some unsuspecting prey comes to the waterhole to drink, then it attacks. The waterhole is a place where most animals exist together peacefully, the cheetahs drink from the waterhole next to the antelope. It represents a social setting of sorts, where all the animals coincide. The Gator on the other hand, creeps steathly in the waterhole and preys on other animals when they aren't ready. The gator, or "Gata" victimizes other animals to get what it needs.

"Gata" is used to desribe a sneaky, scandalous person.
A "Gata" would go after a vulnerable person or someone who is easy to take advantage of and usually strikes quietly, without warning, when you least expect it.
Someone who shows no love for anyone else.
A 'Gata' is usually willing to fuck over his friends and family for his own benefit.
"Dont do business with him, that nigga's a Gata, man."
"I'll take that fool's shit, I'm a fuckin Gata."
"We're hommies, don't act like a Gata toward me!"
"Let's do this mofucka Gata style, hit 'em up when he ain't expecting it"
"I'm a gata, I dont give a fuck about anybody else, but me"
"Me and my hommies are all Gatas, fuck what ya heard, we don't play!"
