In sports, a three-peat is winning three consecutive championships. In college football, no team has ever won three straight titles in the AP poll, the coaches’ poll, the Bowl Championship Series or the College Football Playoff. After winning the National Championship game for the second year in a row, the University of Georgia football team will attempt to be the first team to win three championships in row. Both Alabama and USC have come close, but couldn’t win that third championship game in a row. As I walked out of SoFi stadium on January 10th to the chants of “Go Dawgs” following the UGA win over TCU, I thought about that New Year’s Day back in 1981 when we beat Notre Dame for the 1980 National Championship. As an 18 year old freshman, I didn’t think it would take another 41 years to win it again. So, when we finally beat Alabama last year to earn that top spot in the nation, I felt a great sense of relief.

There’s no doubt UGA is currently on a roll, finishing this year 15-0. The Bulldogs have more national championships (2) than losses (1) over the past two seasons. Our Editorial Director seems to think this has something to do with OC Todd Monken being a product of the Falcon football program under Coach Jim Rexilius at her alma mater, Wheaton North High School. There’s no question Kirby Smart knows how to pick the right people to get the job done. St. Simons Island’s own Jack Podlesny also made some important contributions to get the team where they are today. In any case, they have been an exciting team to watch! Next year, the Bulldogs have an opportunity to play for a three-peat. That is something not even the most rabid UGA fans would have ever dared to imagine! Unbelievable!
