Georgia’s ten most memorable plays of 2007, #7

Georgia vs. Auburn, November 10:

Georgia at 6:47 AUB GA
1st and 10 at GA 32 Knowshon Moreno rush for a loss of 3 yards to the Geo 29. 20 17
2nd and 13 at GA 29 Georgia penalty 0 yard ineligible downfield on pass off-setting accepted, Auburn penalty 0 yard personal foul off-setting, NO PLAY. accepted, no play.
2nd and 13 at GA 29 Matthew Stafford pass complete to Sean Bailey for 45 yards to the Aub 26 for a 1ST down.

Hard to believe, but there was a point in the Blackout game when things weren’t going so swimmingly for the home team. In the middle of the third quarter, Auburn capped off a 17 point run against the Dawgs with a Wes Byrum field goal to take a 20-17 lead. During that stretch, Georgia didn’t have any answers for Will Muschamp’s defense, particularly Antonio Coleman’s one man wrecking crew performance.

But it turned out that it only took one play to unleash the hounds.

Start at the 5:50 mark on the clip. What you’ll see is Stafford stepping back and throwing a beautiful strike to Sean Bailey down the right sideline that Bailey makes a slight adjustment on. With that play, the momentum shifted for the last time, as Georgia went on to score 28 straight points to rout Auburn 45-20.

    Sean Bailey had a great night for sure, but I still think one of the best plays was that TD throw from Moreno to Mo Mass w/ Mo ending up in the hedges. Sucked it was called back.

    Brandon Cox, we’ll miss you ;-)

    Nice call on this play. I seem to remember CMR saying this was the turning point in the game on the CMR show.
    I agree with Ally on the HB pass play. It would’ve been one of the most memorable plays for me had it not been called back.

    I ask again.. is this really the most memorable plays? Or is it the most important..

  5. HB – these plays are memorable from my selfish perspective. And I’ve got to tell you as someone sitting in Sanford Stadium growing more nervous by the minute about Georgia blowing a game to Auburn after beating Florida for the umpteenth time, this play definitely qualified.

    Your mileage may vary, of course. ;)

    Ok gotcha, thanks for the qualifier.

    It’s funny, in hindsight the bomb to Bailey was bigger that it seemed to me at the time.

    I was still sore at the refs, as they were throwing more grudge flags against us in that first half than I have ever seen.
