This year is the 30th anniversary of Kevin Butler's 60-yard field goal to lift Georgia over Clemson. Could it happen again? The circumstances would be hard to duplicate, but Georgia has the kicker to do it.
Marshall Morgan, who made field goals from 56 and 55 yards last year, nailed a 60-yarder in practice the other day, according to head coach Mark Richt. It happened as the team simulated the final play of last year's Iron Bowl, the infamous missed long field goal that led to Auburn's touchdown return.
Except Morgan made the field goal.
"We could've just had him kick short. But I told him, You try to make it, and then we'll make sure that if you do make it we'll flip the ball back there to whoever's back there so we can get a return out of it, so everybody can know what to do if it happens," Richt said. "And he drilled it."
As my kids say, "well shut the front door!"
