“If people think this is the last time it’s going to be like this, they’re sadly mistaken.”

Here’s a nice “Georgia, the sleeping giant awakes” piece from Dan Wolken.

Kind of makes you wonder how this CFP appearance will play with the folks back in Montana, doesn’t it?

    The linked article is terrific and right on the money. Several regular posters on this blog, myself included, have railed against the Georgia Way for years. To me, it is no coincidence that the Renaissance of Georgia football happened shortly after Mike Adams left. He screwed up the program for years. May he burn in Hell.

    • By screwed up, you mean resuscitated it from the grave while tripling the school’s endowment and making our atheletic department a top 5 revenue generator?

      I get it. The railing against the Cocktail Party name thing was lame and dumb.

      But overall he was an incredible President who did what President’s are supposed to do: bring in money.

    “Saying Georgia has as much business winning national titles as the legacy programs is controversial, particularly around the SEC, because the Bulldogs simply don’t have the same historical resumé as their peers. That’s completely fair, if you believe past is prologue. ”

    Huh? 15 in all-time number of wins, and second in SEC championships behind Bama

      15th in all-time wins? Have some more coffee, bro. I dispute the 11th ranking since the State Penn vacating of wins made us 10th. Useless NCAA may have reinstated for some unknown reason, but I haven’t.

      I do hope UGA never begins to think not making the playoff is a fail. Winning the conference title is a great year, always. If you get more recognition beyond that, it is especially memorable. I am already itching to get out of this tie with TN for 2nd place in SEC titles. Hope we win two more but this is already a successful year to me, and one of my favorites.

    • That gave me pause too but if he is talking about National Champioship appearances in the modern era, he is dead on. Except for 2012 SECC, we haven’t played for anything big nationally since 83 Sugar Bowl.

        Too much is (was) out of a team’s control to make
        National Championships a measuring stick. SEC titles – fair; NC titles, not so much

          We’ve won 3 SEC Titles in the last 30+ years…not all that much, IMHO…hopefully, things are changing.. the long droughts need to end.

            Fixed it for you.
            In the last 15 years Georgia has won 3 so have the Barners, Florida 2, uT 0, SC 0. And everyone else in the East. 0

    There was never going to be a good time for Adams to be president when it came to athletics but his tenure coincided with the rest of the SEC going nuclear. Even when he left it took us until now to figure out he was gone. His “football crowd” comments always said he did not believe that athletics and academics could both be extraordinary.

    As good of a map as I have read…really covers all the bases. I can’t wait to read the next series of articles asking the next major question.. is a dominant Georgia good for college football.

    Wow, no wonder Arkansas fans are pissed. I had no idea they were in the Top 25 All Time. Also, the disparity between State and Ole Miss is kind of crazy. I guess Ole Miss is still padded by the 1950s and 60s. http://www.winsipedia.com/ranking/all-time-wins
