The underachiever tiers of college football
Georgia is the inspiration for the underachiever tiers.
The past 40 years in college football have featured some surprising droughts, including extended lulls without conference championships for former powers Tennessee (1998), Nebraska (1999), Miami (2003) and Michigan (2004), and well-positioned programs such as Texas A&M (1998) and UCLA (1998). But I keep coming back to Georgia, a job many coaches consider the nation's best and certainly in the top five. The program hasn't won a national title since 1980, the year before I was born.
