Georgia’s Football Season in Tweets

September 9th: a victory decided in the last minutes of the game against an old foe

 

September 23rd: the underdawg defeated the dogs

 

November 11th: a bitter loss to an even more bitter rival

 

December 2nd: sweet revenge

 

January 1st: the best game I have ever been to and will ever go to in my life. double OT and double the happy tears

 

January 8th: …

 

 

If you’re like me, you remember where you were on each of these blessed days this fall: what you were eating, wearing, who you were with, what tweets you were reading. You remember the emotions: the excruciating joy, unbearable pain, a rollercoaster, near heart attack, maybe even some tears.

While the perfect season might not have had the most perfect ending, we have a newly refined hope for the future thanks to Coach Smart. Remember when we handed Tennessee their worst loss in a century in Neyland Stadium? Twitter buzzed, and Georgia was a team worth noticing. We had press, momentum, and a growing fanbase. We had established a brand. Justin Fields, the #1 ranked recruit in the 2018 class, committed to Georgia after that win. And with his commitment, so did many others now resulting in the number one recruiting class in the nation (my next blog post will be about Twitter’s use in recruiting). This season gave Georgia the push they needed to be great, to make a lasting legacy.

So even though this season didn’t end how we wanted it to, here are some of the best (and my favorite) twitter moments from the season to remind us how great it really was:

Love this post. #Relatable. It is crazy to think how much social media brings us together, especially over the dawgs. It is interesting to compare and contrast this time at UGA with 1980 when we won the National Championship. Imagine if we had something like social media at that time to capture the pure excitement, pride, and joy that the national championship brought to Athens. Imagine reading tweets from Herschel Walker and Lindsay Scott. With the excitement this year of winning the Rose Bowl, social media was blowing up. Everyone and their mom was posting about how much they love the dawgs. Never considered yourself a dawg fan? Oh you were this year. Overall, social media is a great tool to bring us together and to document exciting times. Go dawgs!!

I love the way you did this! I think it is easy to get caught up in the ending of our season, but I love how you said it gives us a newly refined hope for the future. This is so true, last season we would’ve been happy to even get close to winning the SEC, and now next year, even one loss will be a disappointment. I think it is cool to see the tweets and be able to go back to those memories and remember how we felt after each game.
