Total Five-Year Program Score:  116.02

Everything but. Georgia has managed to do everything under head coach Mark Richt except get to the national championship. The Dawgs have won 70% of their SEC games, they have won their share of elite game, and they have been consistently fantastic with six double-digit win seasons in the last seven, with the one exception a nine-win campaign. Beyond just the high level of play, Georgia has proven itself as a tough road team that manages to maintain an even keel even when adversity strikes. There were plenty of injuries last year, and the team still one ten games and got to a New Year's Day bowl. There have been good rebounds from the tough losses, and when needed, like against Florida in 2007, Richt has pulled the right strings to take his team to another level.

Even with all the success, the hope is to become a top three program like it was in the CFN 2004 Rankings. This is one of the elite of the elite, without question, but ... . There's going to be that nagging question with Richt about whether or not he can take Georgia to yet another level. Florida and LSU have each won two national titles in the last six years, Alabama appears to be on its way to getting there, and the rest of the SEC is stronger than it was a decade ago. Georgia will keep up, but soon, it needs to finally finish the drill.
