In the recent history of Georgia football, is there a bigger what-if than this?
1. Alabama 32, Georgia 28 (2012): Good luck finding many better games anywhere. This back-and-forth classic between No. 2 Alabama and No. 3 Georgia determined a spot in the BCS championship game. There were future NFL stars ( Todd Gurley , Amari Cooper and Eddie Lacy ). There was controversy ( Quinton Dial ‘s hit to the head of Aaron Murray ridiculously didn’t draw a flag). And there was late-game drama. Murray’s tipped pass with 15 seconds left was caught by Chris Conley at the 5-yard line, but the clock expired. Mark Richt was 5 yards away from playing — and likely beating — Notre Dame Fighting Irish for the national championship. Instead, Richt got fired three years later. That’s life in the SEC.
I can’t think of one. Discuss.
