About the Book
Spotlighting a team that holds the edge in a series dating back to 1904, this pro-Georgia history proves why fans should love the Bulldogs and hate their archrivals, the Florida Gators. A pep talk from Erk Russell is featured as is beloved mascot Uga, and the “Gator Stomp” that made Tim Tebow look even goofier than usual is highlighted for good measure.
This entertaining chronicle argues for adoring Buck Belue while raking Rex Grossman over the coals, relating the fantastic coaching stories of the legendary W. A. Cunningham, Wally Butts, and Vince Dooley as well as up-close and personal chats with Fran Tarkenton, Herschel Walker, Boss Bailey, and more. Combining the legacy of a timeless rivalry with challenging trivia and insider knowledge, this definitive account grapples with a southern clash as broad as the Georgia–Florida state line.
