In honor of this being my 100th article with Dawn of the Dawg, I have decided to write about some of my favorite things linked to UGA football.
I have been a fan of UGA football for many years now. I never had the opportunity to be an alum, but always dreamed of going to the University of Georgia. Things just never worked out that way, but I have stayed a fan to this day. Nothing keeps me from seeing or listening to a game on Saturdays.
There have been a lot of ups lately, but I came through a lot of low times as well (looking at you Ray Goff). Growing up as a Bulldog fan in the 90s was tough. It seemed like we would never beat Florida, Steve Spurrier was the anti-christ, and October was where Georgia’s season went to die.
However, it wasn’t all bad, in 1992 I got to see my first, and only, UGA football game live. Maybe that is why the 1992 team is my favorite to this day. No, it didn’t win a National Championship but it did win ten games, and won the Citrus Bowl over a Kirk Herbstreit led Buckeyes team.
That team led by Eric Zeier, Garrison Hearst, and Andre Hastings will always be my favorite. It was the team I grew up with. It was where my love for Georgia football started. I am forever grateful for those men and that team.
Here are a few more of my favorite Georgia football things:
