    I think there is no questions this is the best 7-year period of Georgia football. But the competition is fierce, plus with portal and NIL, how long this will last remains to be seen.

    To this point, obliquely, I propose that we erect a statue to Greg McGarity, and place it on the corner opposite the statue of Vince (reserving one corner for Kirby). It was he that, recognizing that Kirby was "ripe" to come out, and that a delay might loose the chance to get him to Athens, and who had the cahones to fire one of the most loved and popular in Georgia History, Mark Richt. That alone may make him the greatest AD in Georgia history. As the late Furman Bisher said, Selah.

    It’s a little hard to compare these things sometimes. Dooley & Richt didn’t have the playoff opportunities that the top four teams now have. Coach Dooleys 66,71,82 & 83 teams certainly would have made the playoffs. Coach Richts 2002 team would have & the 07 team even with the 2 loses was probably the best team in the country.

    On a side note Ray Goffs 92 team & Jim Donnans 97 teams would’ve probably have been in a four team playoff.

    Thanks, Bill!

    Awesome read and fantastic comparisons of the great eras in UGA. history!

    And, yes, it IS a great time to be a Georgia Bulldog!

    To paraphrase I. Yamamoto, the Commander of the Combined Japanese fleet during WWII:

    “Coach Kirby has awoken a fearful giant and filled it with a terrible resolve!”

    Go Dawgs! Four time National Champs!

    50 years a Dawg fan .... there has never been anything like what is happening at UGA like the present. The past was filled with many years of promise disappointment and downright heartbreak or even disgust. Kirby, his staff and the mindset of the players has changed all that. I have heard many people say that next year's team will be far superior to this years and that the defense may very well surpass 2021. It is indeed a wonderful time time to be a Dawg fan. I plan to enjoy every snap, every run, every pass, every sack, every turnover, every sideline shot of UGA, every Kirby leap into the air, every touchdown and every win along the journey. The first Natty was incredible. The second was over the top awesome. And next year ... well, boys, IT'S TIME TO GO HUINTING AGAIN, because the Dawgs are going for 3 in 2023!! GO DAWGS.

    That group of officials should never be allowed to officiate again. If they have not all stepped aside, they should. Ray Charles could have called a better game.
