You know the time.

If you’re not smiling after watching that, you have no soul.

    That was an awesome night. Never forget it.


  3. Go Dawgs!

    I love Uncle Verne. I’m seriously bummed that he’s hanging it up. I know CBS is coming for Tennessee, but the Dawgs need to win more games so we can get him back to town for Auburn again, or even Tech.

    The last six games of 2007 might have been the most fun of my time as a Georgia fan. That was just a fun team once they got rolling.

      That was a great run! I still wish they could’ve played in the SECCG because I believe they would’ve won and had a shot at the BCS title game. The team peaked at the right time and I remember watching them in the Sugar Bowl absolutely destroy an undefeated Hawaii team that many of the pundits picked in the upset. Colt Brennan still wakes up with cold sweats and nightmares from the beating he took After the game, the Hawaii fans and players didn’t know what hit them, LOL.

    Lots of fans got pissed about the team dancing. That was the same year the bench emptied in Jacksonville. That team playing loose was really good. Too bad Verne has run out of gas.

    I’ve been to many a game in Sanford, and many loud ones at that. The Blackout was easily the loudest I’ve ever heard the place.

    Also: I was expecting a David/David piece.


  9. I’ve been her for 32 years and that night was the best. Not only did we kick the shit out of Auburn but Juice Williams took the ball and the Illini beat Ohio State in Columbus. . . and it was my 60th birthday!

    That night and the Awaken the Nation Game against LSU were magical games.


  11. If ever Georgia commemorates the end zone celebration at jacksonville after Meyer is 6 ft under, he will be turning over and over in his grave.

    Was fortunate enough to be at that game and the Hawaii butt kicking. Also believe we could have won it all at the end of year.

    What a game that was. I remember his call on that long Moreno run when he said, “Lingerie on the field!” That remains one of my favorite calls of his ever.

    That was a game when those two were in the bag for Georgia because the Dawgs were clicking and could do no wrong in that second half.

    I remember being up 17-3, then down 20-17 and never feeling like the game was in doubt. Four TDs later, I was right.

    Lots of people still celebrate that game. I was in Kansas City a couple of years ago and ran into a fellow wearing one of the blackout t-shirts most students had on for the game. That was a great night.

    The first thing that comes to mind when watching that clip: “Wow, was that really nine years ago?!?”
