Georgia's Buck Belue

Throw back time again. Georgia-vs-Florida, November 8, 1980. Buck Belue scrambles on third down just before completing the now famous 93 yard touchdown pass to Lindsay Scott late in the fourth quarter to defeat the Gators 26-21. The year began with a victory for the Dawgs on September 6, 1980 in Knoxville, Tennessee in front of 95,288 mostly orange clad fans. That night not only began the legend of UGA's national championship run, but also the legend of one Herschel Walker. Georgia fans have the image of Herschel bulldozing UT's Bill Bates emblazoned in their minds forever, not to mention Larry Munson's call of "my God, a freshman!" The year culminated with a 17-10 victory over Notre Dame in the Sugar Bowl to secure Georgia's 1980 National Championship. Will it take a miracle play similar to the one above for the Dawgs to capture the 2008 Championship? Just hang around guys. As good as baseball season is, it won't last forever. Coming soon to a college campus near you! Stay tuned.....
