From the Inside Flap:

With a proud tradition dating back to the 1890s, a worldwide following of devoted fans, a growing list of SEC titles, and five national championships, Georgia Bulldogs football is among the most elite institutions in sports. The illustrious program is one of the oldest, proudest, and most successful entities in the history of college football. Throughout the years, the players who have worn the familiar red and black, the coaches who have led them into battle, and the games in which they have participated have shaped the sport that millions of fans enjoy today.

Georgia played its first game on January 30, 1892, against Mercer, signifying the official arrival of the game of football in the South. About three weeks later the Bulldogs played Auburn at Atlanta’s Piedmont Park, inaugurating one of college football’s oldest and most impassioned rivalries. Over the next century the University of Georgia’s esteemed program attracted some of the greatest players and coaches in the history of college football.

Among the legendary coaches are Pop Warner, Wally Butts, and Vince Dooley, as well as Mark Richt, who has restored the Bulldogs to perennial national prominence. Georgia’s most memorable players include Bob McWhorter, Frank Sinkwich, Charley Trippi, Fran Tarkenton, and Herschel Walker. These UGA icons and the most memorable games in the program’s history have been colorfully documented by sportswriters around the nation for nearly a century.

Echoes of Georgia Football is a nostalgic compilation of feature articles, profiles, game stories, and other examples of the best sportswriting ever devoted to the Bulldogs.
