A Florida Gator Fan's View Of The Georgia Bulldogs Football Program

James WalkerAnalyst IIFebruary 11, 2010

Before I write anything more, full disclosure is required. I am a graduate of the University of Florida, a die-hard Gator fan, and I hate the Georgia Bulldogs.

That being said, it's time for Georgia to step up their game. Bulldog fan, tell the truth, aren't you tired of driving or flying into JAX just to witness another defeat?

The cries out of Athens declaring the annual game in Jacksonville "unfair" is hilarious at best. It seems to me that Bulldog fans didn't mind making the trip to Jacksonville when they were beating Florida almost every year.

Mark Richt is a mediocre coach.

Yes, I said mediocre.

While Coach Richt struggles to get to Atlanta and the SEC Championship every year, Coach Urban Meyer is focusing on Atlanta as a stop on the road to a national championship.

Don't even compare Richt's and Meyer's accomplishments and records.

It's not even close.

Since 1990, the Gators have won three national and eight SEC championships, and have a 17-3 record against Georgia. On the other hand, Georgia has won two SEC Championships. They have not won a national championship since 1980.

Come on, Georgia Bulldogs—step your game up!

It must have really deflated Georgia fans when Tebow broke Herschel Walker's TD record this past season. Talk about kicking dirt on the dead.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that the annual Florida/Georgia game is not that exciting anymore. Seriously, in a period of twenty years, Georgia has won three games against Florida.

Does Georgia even have the means to compete? 

When will the Georgia Bulldogs become relevant again?

Wake me up when they do.
