Although primarily known for its running attack during the Vince Dooley era and now considered more of a balanced offense under Mark Richt, there have been times over the years when UGA has been known for putting the ball up in the air much of the time.
A lot of talented receivers were on the other end of all those passes thrown over the years by Bulldog quarterbacks. Names like Jimmy Orr from the Butts era, Pat Hodgson, Charlie Whittemore and Lindsay Scott from the Dooley years, Andre Hastings and Brice Hunter from Ray Goff’s tenure, Hines Ward from the Jim Donnan years, Terrence Edwards under Donnan and Mark Richt, and Reggie Brown, Mohamed Massaquoi and current star A.J. Green from the Richt era.
If I had to narrow that list down, I’d have Orr, Hastings, Ward, Edwards (even with that infamous drop against Florida) and Massaquoi, and I think Green probably will top the list before his career is done. And I’d throw in Lindsay Scott for unquestionably the most important reception in Bulldogs history.
Which brings me to our Question of the Day: Who was UGA’s all-time best receiver of all time? Feel free to comment, vote in the poll or do both.
Oh, and after a day under the weather, it’s good to be back discussing the Dawgs.
