The AP tallies up its records from 1936 to determine an all-time top 25… and Georgia finishes fifteenth.
Yeah, that Mark Richt was a real underachiever by Athens’ standards.
The good news is that Kirby has a real chance to elevate the program into a period of sustained excellence that would surpass what we’ve enjoyed over the past fifteen years. But some people need to stop pretending that Smart’s here simply to restore Georgia to its traditional greatness, or that the program was somehow being held back from its natural place in the college football world by Richt.
It’s gonna take a lot of hard work over time to elevate Georgia football to a new plateau. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that Kirby’s got what it takes in that department.
