2015 Georgia Bulldogs - it was a tale of two cities

From Athens to Jacksonville, and back again. This past season proved just how important Everbank Field is to our collective psyche.


Yet, it was so much more than two trips to Jax. Dramatic wins over South Carolina and Auburn. Hung 50 on Spurrier for good measure. The field goal fest that was Homecoming. But in the end, it still has a feel of what the hell happened? Essentially, back in August how many of us thought a picture like this would be the other bookend to the season?

Our wide receivers coach accepting the bowl trophy and a true freshman receiver the MVP. And you thought WR was a position of many questions back when the days were longer and we were in shorts and flip-flops.

I guess Godwin winning the MVP as a freshman is actually easier to believe since Chubb had done it the year before. Still, that picture goes to show how much can change so quickly.

Other than that, since the bulk of our games this year were played in two cities, I would sum up 2015 with a Dickens quote - It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.

On one hand, we're happy with another ten win season. Sent this senior class out with yet another win over Tech and 40 wins in their tenure. On the other, it was just another ten win season that left us wanting more in Jacksonville. Again.

Wherever you fall, I was happy to share the journey with you Reader. Despite some uneasiness of the coaching transition, it continues to be an exciting time to be a Georgia Bulldog fan.
