With all of the 5 stars both of these programs have been able to lure in and are still average.. huge disappointments in my eyes!

If it were UGA stand-alone, you could say three decades. It's pushing two for OU.


Spud and Commodore Bob would 2nd that nomination.***

That's been the case for UGa a lot longer than a decade***

Sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

Starting in 2000 OU has 10 conference championships and a national title. It would be an honor for UGA to be compared to them. I agree they have fallen short recently and we crushed them, but they are just outside that elite group in college football right now.

Great point @whatweeatin. Couldn't agree more. OU gets a lot of disrespect on Tnet because we beat them twice recently, but they're a solid program and really always have been. Sure we smoked them in the playoff and Ohio State kicked their teeth in, in their stadium last year, but they've also won some big games too. Auburn and Alabama in recent bowl games just to name a couple. They are one of those programs that up until about 2013 Clemson fans would have loved to have as a program. Now we just straight trash them. Kind of sad really. Now Georgia, I've not seen them do anything significant in my lifetime. Still waiting, believe it when I see it. They do indeed suck! Haha


I understand the point, but i dont know that i'd throw OU

in there. They have certainly been overrated since about 2012, but previous to that, they've been very tough. A couple of Heisman's, 3 NC game appearances, 1 NC Title

EDIT: you did say past Decade, so i'll agree that is fair

Best Is The Standard


hmmm, wonder if they lost any d coaches around that

Time which is when they started getting pushed around on that side of the ball.


They had defensive problems during Venables' tenure

there too. It seems to be a conference wide problem that's rooted more in personnel and broad coaching philosophy than anything to do with Venables though.


Agree

When you look at the talent that GA pumps into the NFL, how they do not win big is mind boggling. I have said for over 20 years that there is something lacking culturewise at that place. For us 45 and older Tiger fans, besides the Chickens, no place better for suffering than in Athens.

No argument on the underachieving.......Drinking the Mark Richt Kool-Aid for way too long. There's a new sheriff in town and he's stacking the roster. If Dabo can turn clem around anythings possible.

If we're only using the past decade, as in the past 10 years, that puts us back to 2007 through 2016. In that time, Oklahoma has won six Big 12 titles, played in six BCS bowls, New Year's Six, or CFB Playoff games with a 3-3 record, played for one national title (2008), produced a Heisman winner and two finalists this past season, won 104 games (avg. 10.4 wins/season with only two seasons below 10 wins), has wins against Alabama and Auburn in their past 2 Sugar Bowl appearances ... I could keep going, but to say OU is overrated would be massively wrong. Oklahoma deserves the hype they receive. Unfortunately for OU, that hype usually consists of constant National Championship talk and they haven't won one since 2000. Being over-hyped and overrated are different things, IMO. Perhaps that's why you think they are overrated, but I'd disagree.

As for Georgia, I concur.
