    Hard to believe Georgia has not won a national championship since 1980. 40 years. If you were an 18 year old freshman in college, you are now 58 years old. Soon any UGA fan that watched that game will be retired. Another 20 years and most will have died that watched that game

    The "bad" news: you got to 39.

    The "good" news: you don't get any older after this!

    I got crap from Uga family members who are alums last year after the game. So I put on my Gator NC tee shirts, hats, and polos, one at a time and texted several selfies. Each one with the ? Got any?

    It silenced the gang.

    A few years back when Spurs and Urban were kicking their ass, they would say, well, for example, Mark Richt may not win but he is a really good man and we are fine with that, after all, it's better to have a quality man as a coach then to have anybody just to win one game a year (words like that). Often I would say, I'm a nice guy but dont hire me for your coach....you will go 0-12 every year.

    THEY SAY IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY...YOU'RE GONNA HAVE A GOOD TIME......ETC.....

    Unfortunately, I was at that damn Gator-ugaly game in 80. And also the games in 75, 78, 79, 81, 82, 83, 85 and 87. So I'm not near as lucky. :mad:

    With the way Kirby coaches.......
    Any Georgia fan's NEWBORNS might have to wait until they're in their 80s to see the Dawgs win a National Championship. :)

    Are you sure? I can't believe this. I know I have heard them talk about winning titles.

    Happy Birthday! I am 60 and fortunately on my had to endure sports misery of that magnitude only once. Fortunately, I was in college at the time and was able to numb my senses to ease the pain. Luckily, spring classes didn’t start right away after New Years so I also had time to sleep it off.

    Fortunately, our savior arrived ten years later and ran off an 11-1 record on their sorry asses!

    If I am fortunate, that will be the only time that I have to go through that.

    I wonder if Paul imagined 77 when he wrote that song and what he thinks now.
