Going through coaching changes are not easy, but the Bulldogs moved on from Mark Richt this past offseason and feel like they have their guy in Kirby Smart. He went just 7-5 in his first season, but there’s plenty to be excited about in Athens.
Not only is the future bright for the Bulldogs, but the past is impressive. The Bulldogs have had two Heisman winners, 24 consensus All-Americans and countless bowl appearances. Frank Sinkwich was the first winner of the Heisman for Georgia back in 1942 and he was followed by Herschel Walker in 1982.
Other notable players to come through the program are Garrison Hearst, Champ Bailey, David Pollack, Thomas Davis, Knowshon Moreno, Justin Houston, Bacarri Rambo and, most recently, Jarvis Jones and Todd Gurley.
Georgia has made 50 bowl game appearances all-time, ranking fourth in college football history. On top of that, the Bulldogs have won 28 of those, which places them third on the all-time list right behind Alabama and USC. This program has built a winning foundation and even during the rocky times with coaching changes, the Bulldogs will find their way back to the top.
The Bulldogs have also claimed two national titles and have left four others in the unclaimed category, totaling six in school history. They have 14 conference titles, including 12 since becoming members of the SEC.
