As I prepared for my show in the morning (6-10 A.M. Mon.-Fri.) with Randy Cross better known as “Marc & Randy” (on Atlanta Sports Radio 92.9 “The Game”), something hit me like a ton of bricks. Speaking with our executive producer Sean “The Peanut Gallery” Thompson, we came to the realization that the University of Georgia Football program has NOT been to a Major, High Profile Bowl Game in SEVEN Years!?! Yes, SEVEN Long Years. Can you believe that?

Let’s go back in a time capsule. The Dawgs with sophomore quarterback (Future #1 Overall Draft Pick) Matthew Stafford started with a 35-14 blow-out of Oklahoma State with a young freshman by the name of Dez Bryant. Following that win, Georgia lost a home heart breaker to fellow SEC East Rival South Carolina 16-12.

After back-to-back wins over Alabama with their first year head coach Nick Saban and Ole Miss, the Dawgs got trounced by Rocky Top Tennessee in Knoxville 35-14. That loss cost UGA. the SEC East Title to the Vols. It was Subsequently followed by a 7-game win streak highlighted by victories over Florida with Heisman Trophy Winner Tim Tebow, Auburn, Georgia Tech, culminating with a BCS Blow-out over Hawaii in the Sugar Bowl. Coach Mark Richt capped off a memorable 11-2 Season with a Final A.P. Ranking of #2.

So, what were you doing the last time Georgia football was in a High Profile Bowl Game way way back in 2007? Better question, what was going on in the world of Entertainment, Sports, and Pop Culture? Let’s look back:

  • Kevin Durant (Future NBA MVP) was a rookie for the Seattle Sonics…
  • Derrick Rose (Future NBA MVP) was a Freshman at the University of Memphis…
  • Lady Gaga was a Nobody (until 2009)…
  • George W. Bush was still the President of the United States of America…
  • Russell Wilson (Future Super Bowl Winner) was a Senior in High School…
  • Bobby Petrino was the coach of the Atlanta Falcons. Uggh!!! Don’t Remind Us…
  • The First Ever I-Phone came out…
  • The Movies released at the time: American Gangster, The Simpsons Movie, Ratatouille…
  • “The Sopranos” had its Final Ever Episode…

Last, but not least, the “ACC Player of the Year” was a guy from Boston College by the name of Matt Ryan!?!? Yes, Our current Falcons Franchise QB Matt Ryan. That is a microcosm of the “Glorified Mediocrity” which has permeated the Georgia Bulldog Football over the last 7 Years (2008-14).

Bottom Line: Patience is a Virtue, but “Dawg Nation” is beyond impetuous. Mark Richt has had nearly FOUR Presidential terms to win the big one or even just get there, but it still hasn’t happened.
