The 2012 college football season has come to an end and the final polls are out. Georgia finished ranked 4th in the USA TODAY Sports Coaches Poll and 5th (tie) in the AP Poll.
Georgia’s final record was 12-2 overall and 7-1 in the SEC. The Bulldogs lost a heart breaker to eventual national champion Alabama in the SEC Championship Game, but the Dawgs bounced back to defeat Nebraska 45-31 in the 2013 Capital One Bowl.

Saturday’s 35-7 loss at #6 South Carolina continued a recent trend for the Georgia Bulldogs under head coach Mark Richt. Since 2008, the Bulldogs are 6-15 against teams that were ranked at the time of the game.
This is a stark contrast to what Richt and UGA accomplished from 2001 through 2007. Georgia went 24-13 vs. ranked teams during that time period and went undefeated (5-0) in both 2002 and 2007. After the 2007 season, the Dawgs have become less and less competitive in big games, and the numbers are alarming.
