Herschel To Swift: UGA Fan Remakes Cover Of 1980 Sports Illustrated
After Georgia checked in at number one in the College Football Playoff rankings, one UGA fan had a little fun with Photoshop.
This one is too good not to share…
In the November 17, 1980 edition of Sports Illustrated, the magazine featured UGA freshman running back Herschel Walker leaving a Florida Gator defender in his dust.
“Now Georgia is No. 1,” was written on the cover, which has since been mounted on the walls of Georgia fans everywhere.
@BassinDawg’s remade cover displays a photo of freshman running back D’Andre Swift running by a Florida Gator in similar fashion.
The similarities between the pictures are crazy. Two star freshmen backs, both leaving behind a Gator defender and both teams gaining the number one ranking following the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party.
Hopefully those are not the only similarities between the 1980 and 2017 Georgia Bulldogs 😉
