I don’t know what all my fans in dawg nation are talking about……but me being an intelligent coach and person there’s no argument about this……I’d take Tech’s 4 shinny National Championships any day over that silly one-on-one record between UGA and Tech…..just plain common sense I tell ya!

I’d take Tech’s 4 shinny National Championships any day over that silly one-on-one record between UGA and Tech…..just plain common sense I tell ya!

UGA has 5 National Titles. One more than Tech.

* 1980 – The Bulldogs beat Notre Dame 17–10 in the Sugar Bowl to finish 12-0 and claim the National Championship. Notable contributors during the season included Herschel Walker, Buck Belue and Lindsay Scott (Georgia was listed first by AP, Berryman, FACT, FB News, FW, Helms, National Championship Foundation, NFF, Poling, Sporting News & UPI).

Other years in which the Bulldogs finished with a number-one ranking in at least one of the final national polls and included in the official NCAA Football Record Book:[10][29]

* 1927 – With a 9-1-0 record, the Bulldogs were called the “dream and wonder team” and were ranked No. 1 in the nation with one regular season game remaining, but were upset by Georgia Tech by a score of 12-0 at Grant Field in Atlanta, Georgia.[30] Nevertheless, at the end of the season, Georgia was ranked number 1 in two polls recognized by the NCAA.[31] The Bulldogs were also listed as number 1 in two other polls of the 1927 season, but most recognize Illinois as the 1927 National Champion.[32]
See also: 1927 Georgia Bulldogs football team

* 1942 – 11–1 Georgia was chosen as champion by at least half of the recognized polls. Georgia was led by All-Americans Frank Sinkwich and end George Poschner, along with a young back named Charley Trippi. The Bulldogs knocked off 9 consecutive opponents and ranked No. 1 in the nation. Georgia earned a Rose Bowl bid after it blanked Georgia Tech 34–0 in Athens to end the regular season. Georgia then edged UCLA 9-0 in the Rose Bowl

* 1946 Georgia went 11-0 and beat North Carolina 20-10 and was proclaimed national champions by half the national polls.

* 1968 Georgia was chosen by one national poll when they went 9-1-2 losing to Arkansas in the Sugar Bowl. Overtime was not allowed in the NCAA yet so Georgia tied with Tennessee and Houston.

Shane, get your fact straight, bubba. Check any site and you will see that Tech has shares of 6 national championships, and UGAG only 5. Check the NCAA records of RECOGNIZED championships, and you will see that Tech has 3; UGAG has 1. I don’t know what you’re smoking, but you’re hallucinating, bubba.

Great Post!

The whiny little doggie fans who live here will ATTEMPT to find to explain away the ACC 2-0 vs SEC in Bowl Games this year.

Of course 2-0 ACC vs SEC stands on its own – just a FACT.

If it was the other way around they would be quick to post it – they have no cred.

The perfect irony here is that the little doggies THINK they are a nuisance on the board and that is where they THINK they are getting back at GT folks for all of the GT success this year, but they are not doing either of these things.

They are providing terrific entertainment for all the GT folks by the rage and anger and personal attacks they throw around, and we GT folks just LAUGH AND LAUGH.

And they just get angrier and sillier!

And then I just laugh some more.

I personally love it. The more they post, the more fun the GT folks get. It a no win situation for the little doggies. Keep posting and peeing all over yourselves, little doggies!

Exactly what the whole world hates about UGA fans…..Unintelligent posts and endless drivel about anything that makes them look, feel and sound better, smarted or wiser. A little history lesson Shane my boy…..

The award for the best player in CFB is not The Hershel Trophy, The Belue Bust, or The Sinchowich Award…IT IS THE HEISMAN TROPHY….Named after John Heisman who was a Head Coach at GT.

The award for the best coach in CFB is not the Mark Richt, Vince Dooley, Ray Goff, Jim Donnan Coach of the year Award….IT IS THE BOBBY DODD COACH OF THE YEAR AWARD!!!!!

Also which UGA fan can answer this question correctly…..Who was the Head Coach at UGA after Ray Goff????

Most of my family is UGA fans so I am more versed in UGA football than most of the UGA fans are…..Please brush up on reality before you post Shane my boy cause it makes you look ignorant or even stupid!!!!!

No. UGA Bulldogs have 6 National Championships in 1-A College Football, the same as GA tek, according to the Official NCAA Football Records Book. I have a copy, and you can just read it by goggle this

Official NCAA Football Records Book

By the way, ALL the same polls that voted GA tek NC 6 times, ALL OF THOSE POLLS, ALL, voted UGA NC 6 times,

HOWEVER,

GA tek NEVER HAS HAD A Final AP POLL NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP in Football.

UGA Bulldogs have.

Got it ?

NOT THAT HARD.

GA tek WebPages are NOT Official.

NCAA is Official.

Official NCAA Football Records Book

Coach Richt Era at UGA, who was hired by Vincent J. Dooley, December 20, 2000 :

LAST NINE (9) YEARS :

101-15 Texas, has loss to Alabama to come this season.

101-15 Boise State, has loss to TCU to come this season.

96-25 Oklahoma worse season than UGA this season, by far.

97-19 Southern California in the PAC-0 (PAC-0 is 2-4 in Bowls so far.)

93-21 Ohio State Suckeyes who are 0-9 vs. SEC in Bowl Games All-Time.

91-26 LSU, has Penn St today or drops to tie in losses with Coach Richt

90-27 Georgia Bulldogs in Coach Richt Era 7-2 Bowls for 26 to overtake vols.

89-27 Florida with NO COACH but 3 National Championships since 1996.

88-31 Virginia Tech after THUMPING of vols tonight.

85-26 TCU, has win over Boise State to come this season.

82-29 Utah after they THUMPED Mighty PAC-0 California.

81-32 Miami of Florida, they haven’t done a thing in ACC, nothing.

81-35 Boston College

78-35 Auburn, has game against Big 10 Northwestern 11 am today.

77-37 Texas Tech, has game without Mike Leach & his lawsuit.

75-38 Tennessee vols, 15 wins less than Coach Richt 11 more LOSSES.

75-40 Alabama 1 game to go, been WORSE than vols Coach Richt Era.

73-42 FSU who never had any QB after Coach Richt left FSU, not 1.

72-40 Michigan, so this 5-7 isn’t their ONLY LOUSY SEASON, is it?

72-44 GA tek, God they have been WORSE than Michigan. 1-8 vs Richt.

71-39 Pennsylvania State has been God Awful in Coach Richt Era.

13 Seasons (starting 1997) UGA has at least 8 wins a season, no other team better.

26 Bowl Wins now for UGA leaving only Southern California and Alabama with more.

You cannot LOSE to 2 teams both 7-6 vols and 7-6 Kentucky. That sucks. This is UGA, we cannot have LOSSES to one 7-6 team. That is NOT UGA football.

Otherwise, I have no problem with this year. Now, Coach Richt get you an NFL Defensive Coordinator and Mack Brown, please sir; and, tell UGA to give Decory Bryant his damn $500,000 and do it NOW Coach Richt, or give it to him yourself.

HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!!!!!!!!!

ACC 2-3 in Bowl Games this year.

ACC 85-87-3 in Bowl Games All-Time.

SEC has 7 remaining big bowl games and is 191-151-9 All-Time in Bowl games.

KY and TN are both 7-6 teams. Chick-Fil-A Peach Bowl pits Number 2 ACC against at least Number 5 SEC or WORSE. In this case this year, The SEC sent the Number 10 team in The SEC to play the Number 2 team in the ACC.

That’s like GA tek’s LAME BUTT running of their mouth that GA tek was undefeated against The SEC (before UGA punked them 30-24.) An 8-5 UNRANKED UGA. GA tek had played THE ONLY 2 SEC TEAMS NOT IN A BOWL GAME. South Carolina, another UNRANKED SEC Team at 7-5 ALSO PUNKED the OTHER ACC team in the ACC CHUMPionship Game.

ACC CHUMPionship game was a joke. South Caronia is The ACC Champ. UGA is The ACC Champ. The winner of that game, certainly was NOT.

As for your B.S. about out of conference schedule strengths, sir :

No BCS Conference Lost ANY game to ANY 1-AA team…

…EXCEPT for the STINKING ACC.

ACC Lost Two (2) games to 1-AA teams who are NOT even 1-A Bowl Championship teams.

ACC even with those 2 bowl games you want to run your mouth about, has a LOSING RECORD to The SEC AGAIN this year. 4-5. And, that also includes your # 1 ACC team playing The SEC’s Number 11 and 12 teams Vandie and Mississippi State neither of whom are Bowl Teams, but 10 SEC teams are.

What about Boston College LOSING its bowl game ?

What about Miami of Florida LOSING its bowl game ?

What about North Carolina LOSING its bowl game ?

You cannot talk about 2 bowl games and not discuss ALL the bowl games.

OUT-OF-CONFERENCE

That’s what you want to discuss ?

11-14 ACC against BCS conference teams all season long to-date.

11-6 SEC against BCS conference teams all season long to-date.

SEC has SEVEN (7) MORE GAMES. Bowl Games 7 left for SEC.

ACC has only 2.

Best ACC can be is 13-14 against out-of-conference BCS teams.

Best SEC can be is 18-6.

Come back big mouth when the bowls are all played with today being the New Year and lousy ACC only has 2 games remaining, while MIGHTY SEC has our 7 BEST TEAMS.

Anyway, you are talking in an UGA blog. UGA won 44-20 over Texas A&M the NCAA # 5 Best Total Offense. That is UGA’s 26th bowl win. Only Southern California and Alabama (both tied at 31 coming into this bowl season) have more than UGA’s 26 Bowl Wins.

UGA has been at least an 8-win team 13 consecutive seasons starting 1997. No team has a longer streak of at least 8 wins. UGA.

UGA blog.

UGA answer.

I don’t recall UGA losing to an ACC team.

DO YOU ?

UGA damn sure did NOT lose to ANY ACC team this entire freaking season, moron.

This is our blog, UGA. We own this blog. We own the AJ-C.

Always have.

Always will.

And, we dominate the ACC.

Hell we are 8-1 the last 9 games against your ACC # 1 team, including beating them AT THEIR HOUSE this year, again. Our 60th win over them All-Time.

UGA out of conference this season played Oklahoma State, Georgia Tech, Arizona State. What team do you root for Mike with no team you are proud of in your handle ? GA tek ? GA tek played SIX (6) games against teams NOT EVEN IN A DAMN BOWL GAME. UGA Bulldogs ONLY PLAYED 3 games against teams NOT in a bowl game. I presume you are a GA tek fan.

OUT-OF-CONFERENCE :

ACC 20-19 against 1-A teams all season long, to-date. Win last 2 ?

SEC 31-6 against 1-A teams all season long, to-date. 7 BIG Bowl Games left.

2 Big Bowls ACC.

7 Big Bowls SEC.

NOT 1-A TEAMS :

ACC 14 games against 1-AA teams, LOST 2

SEC 12 games against 1-AA teams, LOST 0.

You are FULL OF B.S.

Average BCS Rank in Final BCS Rankings this 2009 Season :

# 51 ACC

# 35 SEC

OUT-OF-CONFERENCE :

43-8 SEC all games, to-date this 2009-2010 season out of conference.

32-21 ACC all games, to-date this 2009-2020 season out of conference.

YOU just make up B.S. Mikey.

SEC has TWO (2) of the Top 5 Teams. 1 is # 1 Alabama.

ACC, if there were an 8-team play-off this year, would NOT even have a team in the play-off because the ACC does NOT have a top-ranked football team.

Who is the top-ranked ACC team ?

Trick question. There ain’t one.

That is the SAME THIS SEASON AS IT IS EVERY SEASON, that the stinking ACC does NOT have a top-ranked team.

So, if we took the top 8 teams in the Final BCS Rankings and had a Play-off of the top 8 teams, the ACC would be out in damn cold, son.

And, UGA punked ACC CHUMPion. This is OUR blog you write in. Are we NOT to disclose that fact to you ?

Who is the ACC Champion ?

UGA Bulldogs.

30-24. I guess you neatly forgot that one, huh ?
