When the season began, Georgia was ranked No. 22, but lost to Boise State 35-21 in Week 1. After that loss, the Dawgs dropped out of the rankings, but even worse, they fell the following week to SEC East rival South Carolina.
After starting 0-2, Georgia had to fight like hell for a shot at the SEC title. Mark Richt proved why he's one of the nation's better coaches as the Bulldogs ran off nine straight heading into their rivalry game with Georgia Tech.
And they won the SEC East title, are ranked No. 13 in the BCS. For a team that began 0-2, then hadn't beaten a ranked team until their 45-7 thrashing of Auburn, Georgia has come a long way.
They could have easily just packed in the 2011 season, but in knowing there was still pride to play for, the Dawgs have a shot to knock off the No. 1 ranked LSU Tigers next week.
That said, here's to hoping the Bulldogs can pull off the upset win and cause some BCS chaos.
