    Oh my....I was at UGA in the early 80's....so obviously, the 1980 Georgia-Florida game in Jacksonville is the best! Just before the game ended I hopped over the fence (tearing down the goalposts were on my mind), got tackled by a cop....and when the wave of humanity followed me over the fence, I took off...only to be bear-hugged by Nat Hudson...next, I ran through the team and suddenly between two Georgia State Troopers and into Coach Dooley! I shook hands with him....which I found out later was on TV! So every year family and friends are entertained with me shaking hands with Coach after the game via YouTube....it NEVER gets old! It was such a beautiful day in Jacksonville....especially when Lindsay scored....and then it started raining bourbon and Coke!

    Others that could be mentioned....how about the 1983 Elite Eight basketball game against UNC....a Tar Heel team that had Michael Jordan, Brad Daugherty and Sam Perkins? We were deeper....Vern Flemming, James Banks, Terry Fair, Lamar Heard and Richard Corhan (who played the game of his life!). And pick any Dominique Wilkins game!

    What about barking at Henry Field Stadium during the NCAA Tournament....especially at the UCLA players in the parking lot after they lost! And Mikael Perfors winning an individual championship!

    There are so many! It's those memories that make our time at UGA so special! Thanks Bill for sharing the memories....and for being a DGD!

    So many great memories- Tarkenton's pass to Herron to beat Auburn and win the SEC in 1959. The Flea Flicker when back-up QB Kirby Moore threw to Pat Hodgson who lateraled to Bob Taylor who went down the sideline and scored a TD and Moore to Hodgson for the 2 pt conversion to upset #1 and defending National Champion Alabama in 1965. That drive against GT in 1971 led by Andy Johnson and capped by Jimmy Poulos's TD to beat Tech. The 1976 21-0 win over Alabama. The Run Lindsey Run play against the hated Gators in 1980 and actually that entire enchanted season that started with "He's only a freshman" Larry Munson talking about Herschel running over Bill Bates on his way to a TD and win over Tennessee and other exciting wins that saw the Dawgs win a consensus National Championship. 2001 Hobnail boot play when David Greene hit Veron Haynes to upset Tennessee and reverse the losing trend to the Volunteers. The 2002 Greene to Michael Johnson play that beat Auburn and clinched the SEC championship. The 2002 David Pollock **** of South Carolina's QB and TD. The 2 OT win over Oklahoma in the 2018 Rose Bowl when Sonny Michel scored that 27 yard TD to beat Oklahoma and send the Dawgs to the National Championship against Alabama. These are only a few of the games that are so vivid in my mind.

    Going to the 1982 Georgia-Florida game in Jacksonville with my Daddy. We won, and Herschel went for over 200 yards.

    Walker running over Bates

    Ben Smith ( an often forgotten Bulldog great ) interception against FL in 1989. Think he caused 4 turnovers that game. I think that was UGAs 10th win in 12 games against the hated Gators ….. Then Spurier happened

    Terry Hoage sack of Nuhisel and UGA win that year vs a UCLA team Georgia was suppose to have no shot against

    Long list of great plays come to mind

    1997 Florida game. We won 37-17 after dropping 7 straight. That was the first one I attended and hadn't missed one since. Rose bowl rivals it though.
