The Georgia Bulldogs won the College Football Playoff national championship on Monday night in Indianapolis, beating the Alabama Crimson Tide 33-18. The victory ends a 40-year skid for the Dawgs between championship seasons.
The 40 seasons mark the end of the fifth-longest gap between championship seasons in football, according to ESPN Stats & Information research. Only Auburn (52 seasons, 1958 to 2009), Michigan (48 seasons, 1949 to 1996), Tennessee (46 seasons, 1952 to 1997) and LSU (44 seasons, 1959 to 2002) had longer droughts.
In comparison to the current season, the 1980 college football season featured several distinctions. There was no College Football Playoff, or even a Bowl Championship Series. The Big 12 was nicknamed as the Big Eight because it only featured eight teams instead of the usual ten. Miami, Florida State, and Penn State, all future powerhouses, were independents when they joined Notre Dame. Pittsburgh, which had won the national championship four years before in 1976, was also an independent and placed second in the final vote. The top two teams, however, did not play for the championship at the conclusion of the season.
The SEC, on the other hand, was still a formidable opponent. During the season, Alabama had been at No. 1 in the AP poll for six weeks. Herschel Walker, a freshman, rose to national prominence as a crucial member of Georgia’s national championship team, which was coached by Vince Dooley.
And there was a lot of it. Five different teams topped the polls, while at least one top-four team lost or tied in each of the last eight weeks of the season.
1980 was a very long time ago. Here’s a look back at what occurred in 1980 and what life was like.
History and Controversy at the Olympics
The United States men’s hockey team’s upset over the Soviet Union, which had not lost an Olympic game since 1968, and the Americans’ subsequent gold medal in the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, New York, will be remembered for the rest of their lives.
Because of the continuing Soviet-Afghan War, 66 nations, including the United States, boycotted the 1980 Summer Olympics in Moscow.
Luke’s paternity was revealed to us.
“The Empire Strikes Back,” the sequel to the original Star Wars trilogy, was the highest-grossing picture of the year. Spoiler alert: Darth Vader was revealed to be Luke Skywalker’s father at the conclusion of the film.
Robert De Niro earned an Academy Award for Best Actor in a Motion Picture for his legendary depiction of Jake LaMotta in “Raging Bull.”
It takes a lot of quarters to do this.
Pac-Man was released in arcades across the world, initially in Japan and then subsequently in the United States. The game was once recognized by 94 percent of Americans, according to The Guinness Book of World Records.
In 2005, Walter Day of Twin Galaxies, a company that counts video game world records, told CNN that “Pac-Man transformed the psychological profile of the typical individual.” “Doctors, dentists, attorneys, and housewives, young and old, male and female, suddenly thought it acceptable to be playing a video game. Pac Man was the one who opened the door for them. It was as easy as playing a card game for them, despite the fact that it was highly sophisticated.”
It is a magical moment.
In 1980, Magic Johnson was a rookie with the Los Angeles Lakers. That year, all he did was start in the NBA All-Star Game, win an NBA championship, and earn the Finals MVP Award.
Johnson recorded 42 points and 15 rebounds in the series-clinching Game 6 of the Finals against the Philadelphia 76ers, filling in for an ailing Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.
The first notes app
The Post-It Note existed long before you could write to-do lists or shopping lists into your phone. In 1968, a corporate scientist at 3M, the maker of Post-It Notes, started inventing the technology for the adhesive component of the ubiquitous yellow notes.
After experimenting with many iterations of the pad, the original Post-It Note was released in April 1980.
Nick Saban was nowhere to be seen.
Saban was at Ohio State in 1980, long before he won his seven national football championships. Saban was teaching defensive backs eight years after leaving Kent State as a player. The club he was coaching began the season atop the polls, as it had done many times in his latter career. The Buckeyes, on the other hand, would drop three games that season.
In 1980, Alabama was coached by Bear Bryant, and Kirby Smart was 5 years old.
Who could have missed it?
Georgia won the championship by defeating Notre Dame in the Sugar Bowl on January 1, 1981. Modern icons Beyonce, Serena Williams, and Britney Spears; Oscar winners Jennifer Hudson, Rami Malek, and Natalie Portman; sports champions Roger Federer, Eli Manning, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic; Captain America (Chris Evans), Frodo Baggins (Elijah Wood), Loki (Tom Hiddleston), Anakin Skywalker (Hayden Christensen), or Rory Gilmore (Rory Gilmore) were not present to see the game (Alexis Bledel). They were all born in 1981.
