#ThrowbackThursday: UGA-Clemson circa 1983, 2003

Posted: Updated:

With the UGA-Clemson showdown in Death Valley looming, it just seems right that we find something from the archive relating to Clemson and Georgia this week.  I chose to pull two clips, one from 30 years ago and one from 10 years ago.

TAPE: SP-205  DATE: 9-15-83 SLUG: GEORGIA CLEMSON PRE TIMECODE: 12:10

The first video is a preview of the Dawgs and Tigers 1983 game in Death Valley.  Bill Hartman talks with Vince Dooley and looks back on the early 80's match ups between the two teams that have been won by whichever squad had home field advantage.  Georgia and Clemson go on to tie the 1983 game in Death Valley 16-16.  UGA finished the '83 season 10-1-1 and ended up beating Texas in the Cotton Bowl 10-9.

Note: There are portions of the piece that had to be edited out due to avoid rights issues.

TAPE: SP-2411  DATE: 8-26-03 SLUG: RICHT ON CLEMSON TIMECODE: 16:00

The second piece of video comes from the last time the Bulldogs and Tigers faced off, which was a decade ago. Mark Richt, in just his third season at the helm, is taking his Bulldogs to Death Valley to start the season.  The sound bite is almost exactly what you would have heard from the head dawg this week, with the exception of playing in the heat of the day.  UGA went on to win 30-0 over Tommy Bowden's Tigers and finished the season 10-3 beating Drew Brees and Purdue in the Capital One Bowl.

    Talk radio has blown up this week with criticism of Fredi Gonzalez for not bringing in Craig Kimbrel at the beginning of the 8th inning in game four against the Dodgers. 
    Talk radio has blown up this week with criticism of Fredi Gonzalez for not bringing in Craig Kimbrel at the beginning of the 8th inning in game four against the Dodgers.  It isn't the first time a Braves manager has been raked over the coals following a relief pitcher call that resulted in a go-ahead homer and a playoff loss.
