Many outstanding plays in the 116-year history of Georgia Bulldogs football enhance a tradition that few schools can match. In this book, author Patrick Garbin has selected the 50 top plays in Bulldogs history, ranked them by greatness, and detailed each play with not only a description, but also a slew of supplemental materials. From Georgia allowing football's first forward pass in 1895 to the Bulldogs' celebration following their initial touchdown against Florida in 2007, which seemingly inspired the team and turned around a season, The 50 Greatest Plays in Georgia Bulldogs Football History is certain to be of interest to all football fans, regardless of their team allegiance. Did you know that Fran Tarkenton's winning touchdown pass that defeated Auburn in 1959 was a play Tarkenton literally made up in the huddle? Are you aware that seconds prior to his remarkable breakup of a critical pass in the end zone against Vanderbilt in 1983, Terry Hoage had fallen down on the play? From the heartbreaking--like Pittsburgh's Dan Marino throwing for a score on fourth down to defeat the Bulldogs in the 1982 Sugar Bowl--to the unbelievable--such as David Pollack's strip of South Carolina's quarterback in the end zone for a touchdown in 2002--The 50 Greatest Plays in Georgia Bulldogs Football History is a must-read for every fan of the Dogs. Every play's description is accompanied with game details and quotes from participants, players, and observers. In addition, key personalities are highlighted in biographical sketches, and captivating, rare photographs supplement each of the plays. As an added feature, a number of plays are diagrammed, illustrating with "Xs and Os" just how the play came to pass. Read about George Woodruff, Bob McWhorter, Frank Sinkwich, Charley Trippi, Herschel Walker, and many others, and relive 50 plays that have left indelible marks on the history of University of Georgia football.
