Georgia's 1980 Season

Very good read. If you have any doubt about how magical the 1980 season was, take a look. Connelly's normal statistical genius shows just how much that is so. The best is something I've said for years:
But wow, what a season this was, and it was almost made more awesome and amazing by how flawed the team itself was. This was the third-best Georgia team of the Herschel Walker era, but it was the one that secured Vince Dooley a title.

I still say BYU's championship season was worse, mainly because of their bowl opponent, but Georgia's 1980 season was one of magic and a good team getting all the breaks (insert your own Auburn jokes here). He's including the 1980 team in his upcoming book The 50 Best* College Football Teams of All-Time. If you are so inclined, you can click the link to support that effort.
