To start, we take a quick look at the list of plays that didn't quite make the cut. All of these were incredible to watch but, unfortunately, they just didn't fit the bill.
Shawn Williams calls out defense
I would like to start out by mentioning that this may have been the most important "defensive" play of the season and, in many other lists, could be ranked number one. Senior captain and safety Shawn Williams lit a fire under this Georgia Bulldog defense that led to a much stronger second half of the year. Without this "awakening," I truly believe the Dawgs would have had a vastly smaller chance of reaching the SEC Championship Game.
Damian Swann two-interception performance against Nebraska
This, too, was very close to making the list. Damian Swann was all over the field during the Capital One Bowl and made some incredible plays in addition to his two interceptions.
Alec Ogletree sacks Jeff Scott for safety against Ole Miss
This play did not make the list simply because the game was in hand by the time it happened. The Dawgs had come back from a ten-point deficit to lead 28-10 when Alec Ogletree dragged down the Ole Miss runner in the end zone toward the end of the third quarter for a beautiful two-point play.
Alec Ogletree body slam against Georgia Tech
This huge tackle in the Georgia Tech game just wasn't game-changing enough to make the list. Make no mistake; it was a big play though that I'm sure put the college football nation's attention on what "Tree" can do.
Bacarri Rambo big hit against Georgia Tech
In the same game, Bacarri Rambo, who also intercepted a pass in the contest, decided to follow up Ogletree's play with a vicious slam of his own that got the crowd and the Georgia sideline fired up.
