2013 was a season in which most Dawg fans found themselves wondering what could have been. Well, now that that snake-bit campaign is thankfully in the books for good, I suggest we take a minute to look at what actually was. I tried a Georgia baseball trivia post last summer, enjoyed coming up with it and reading the responses, so I figured I'd try the same with the sport with which I assume most of the Dawg Sports community is most familiar.
Part of the fun of these is not using Google, so you're on the honor system here. Post your answers in the comments. I will update with an answer key later. Good luck, have fun and GO DAWGS!
