Georgia 2021 ‘No-Name Defense’ shorted on ESPN all-time defense list

ATHENS — The 2021 Georgia defense deserves better than what ESPN is doling out when it comes to its assigned all-time ranking.

The Bulldogs set a modern-era record with 6.9 points per game allowed during the regular season and had eight defensive player, and All-American punter Jake Camarda -- selected among their record-breaking NFL draft of 15 players selected.

Georgia did it with a defense that put team success first, hence the “No-Name” moniker which seemed to apply after USA Today failed to list any UGA players on offense or defensive to its preseason All-SEC team before the 2021 championship season.

And yet, ESPN’s Bill Connelly ranked it only 17th among the greatest college football defenses of all-time.
