This is it, people. It’s time for the SEC Championship Game, which pits our Georgia Bulldogs against the Alabama Crimson Tide for rivalry bragging rights, the conference crown, and, oh, yeah, a bid to face the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in the national championship game.

Naturally, I put a great deal of thought into the selection of this Saturday’s Dawg Sports honorary game day captain, ultimately opting to go with Bob Taylor. For some of you, this may raise the question, "Who the heck is Bob Taylor?" Allow me to take you back to 1965.

Vince Dooley’s Bulldogs were trailing Bear Bryant’s Crimson Tide, 17-10, when Georgia quarterback Kirby Moore completed a pass to right end Pat Hodgson on a flea flicker. Although some may say that Hodgson’s knees might have been just slightly down, this was before the days of instant replay, so that possibility really is immaterial. What matters is that Hodgson flipped the ball back to a teammate, who ran 73 yards for a touchdown. The Red and Black went for two to notch the 18-17 victory that gave Coach Dooley his first career triumph over a top five opponent.

The player who scored the touchdown off of Hodgson’s pitch was senior tailback Bob Taylor. That play still is shown in Sanford Stadium each Saturday, at the start of the opening scoreboard montage, and that game began the Bulldogs’ current run of going 8-2 against defending national champions.

Join in the thread. Cheer on the ‘Dawgs. Listen to your moderators, who are here to help. Also, remember what we told you on the podcast: Seasons like this don’t come around very often, so don’t forget to enjoy this.
