Vince Dooley wrote a fantastic book about the1980 Georgia Bulldogs. The book has a weird, well not weird but interesting, way of telling the story. The book starts with the story of the purloined pig, and ends with the Sugar Bowl win against Notre Dame. It is almost like short stories, but they are In 1980, the college football world was introduced to the future Heisman winner Hershel Walker.

This book, by former Georgia coach, Vince Dooley, along with Blake Giles, is a wonderful find. Written in 2005, it describes the NCAA championship season of the 1980 Georgia Bulldogs. Perhaps the most intriguing thing in the book, is that Herschel Walker dislocated his shoulder on the second offensive play of the game, in the 1981 Sugar Bowl against Notre Dame. I have seen films of that game, and that play in particular. Herschel takes a punishing lick as he goes out of bounds on a toss sweep. It's easy to see as his arm is hanging limp, that something is very wrong

Even Moses could not have parted the red sea of fans who engulfed the Georgia Bulldogs football team after it clung tenaciously to 17-10 victory over Notre Dame in the 1981 Sugar Bowl, capping a perfect season to win the school's first consensus national championship. Vince Dooley had the perfect view of the bedlam, riding atop the shoulders of his players, and he had the perfect view of everything that happened in 1980 that led up to the ultimate climax. They played with the tenacity of Bulldogs all year, yet it might have been the purloined pig that united the team. It was also the year the silver britches returned. It was the last year for the fans on the railroad tracks. And on the eve of a national championship, Vince Dooley almost left Georgia to return to Auburn to coach his alma mater. One year removed from a mediocre 6-5 season, Georgia certainly got a boost from freshman tailback Herschel Walker, the most sought-after schoolboy athlete in the state's history. It was so important that Georgia sign Walker, in fact, that backfield coach Mike Cavan moved to Wrightsville, Georgia--100 miles south of the Athens campus from Christmas to Easter--when divine intervention seemingly moved Walker to a decision. But Walker alone was not enough. That became clearly evident when a dramatic comeback was needed to overcome Florida, and a wide receiver who had lost his scholarship for disciplinary reasons and suffered an offseason injury in a car accident resurrected his college career with the most incredible play in Georgia's history. Yet the championship season was almost derailed before it started in the season opener, when Nate Taylor, Pat McShea, and even punter Jim Broadway epitomizedthe roles of the unsung heroes in a onepoint win. From beginning to end, it was a year of unusual drama, sprinkled with generous doses of humor. And when it was all done, the 1980 team had reached a place no Bulldog team had ever gone before.
