Georgia coach Kirby Smart told a near-capacity crowd at Sanford Stadium on Saturday the Bulldogs don't plan to wait another 41 years for their next national championship.
“It’s moments and events like this that allow us to look back and allow us to look forward,” Smart said.

Lanning was hired by the Ducks last month, but first he finished out his run as defensive coordinator for the Bulldogs, who on Monday beat Alabama 33-18 for the national title.
It never seems hard for Alabama to find a silver lining amid a late-night gloom and doom of a season-ending defeat.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A season notable for upsets and highly ranked teams losing ended with a No. 1 team in the AP Top 25 that was not particularly surprising.
Georgia finished No. 1 in The Associated Press college football poll presented by Regions Bank after starting the season at No.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Kirby Smart learned from his former boss that the time for celebrating is short in college football.
Even while he reveled Tuesday in the hangover from Georgia's first national title since 1980, the coach was already thinking about what comes next.

The Crimson Tide settled for field goals on three of four red-zone trips and scored its only touchdown on a 16-yard drive after a Georgia fumble.
Georgia won its long-awaited national championship the way it dominated during an undefeated regular season — by relying on its defense.
The Bulldogs allowed only 30 yards rushing in beating Alabama 33-18 on Monday night in Indianapolis.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The Latest on the College Football Playoff championship game (all times local):
Stetson Bennett threw two touchdown passes to lead Georgia to a 33-18 win over Alabama on Monday night for its first national championship in 41 years.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Five weeks have passed, but it still seems a bit unreal.
The Georgia Bulldogs straggling off the field in Atlanta, having been run into the ground by an Alabama offense that showed absolutely no respect for what was supposedly one of the greatest defenses in college football history.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — When Alabama receiver John Metchie III crumpled to the ground during last month's SEC championship game, the questions came hard and fast.
How would the Crimson Tide suddenly adapt without its most reliable receiver?
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Georgia coach Kirby Smart got an inside look at what it takes to build a college football juggernaut working for Nick Saban at Alabama for eight seasons.
Blueprint in hand, Smart took over at his alma mater in 2016, and the Bulldogs have been ascending ever since, going 57-10 in the last five seasons.

College Football Playoff championship at Indianapolis: No. 1 Alabama (13-1, SEC) vs. No. 3 Georgia (13-1, SEC), Monday, 8 p.m. ET (ESPN)

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Alabama's Bryce Young and Georgia's Stetson Bennett both transferred in 2018. One got a lot more attention than the other.

Former longtime Georgia coach Vince Dooley loves history — especially the kind he says favors his beloved Bulldogs.
Dooley believes a rematch will work in Georgia's advantage against Alabama in the College Football Playoff title game on Monday night in Indianapolis.
If it's not easy beating a team a second time, it's likely even harder to do it using the same formula.
But No. 1 Alabama does have enough ways it can attack opposing defenses, even a dominant one like third-ranked Georgia has, to win the College Football Playoff championship game Monday night in Indianapolis.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Coach Nick Saban walked off Alabama's team plane Friday night to a cold, harsh reality.
When he returns to the airport for the final time this season, the Crimson Tide will either be celebrating another national championship or heading home disappointed.
Georgia and Alabama have used the transfer portal to supplement their annual bounties of top recruits.
After Georgia beat Florida in November, Bulldogs coach Kirby Smart was asked about the importance of recruiting. His response was both obvious and emphatic:
“The best coach to ever play the game better be a good recruiter because no coaching is going to outcoach players," he said.
Down to the last play of the regular season, this Alabama team managed to bounce off the ropes when it seemed most vulnerable.
When two of Ohio State’s top receivers opted out of the Rose Bowl to prepare for the NFL draft, Jaxon Smith-Njigba responded by delivering one of the great individual performances in bowl history.
Smith-Njigba had 15 receptions for 347 yards to help Ohio State rally from a 14-point deficit to beat Utah 48-45.
A mere 37 days after they last played, Alabama faces Georgia again with a national championship on the line.
History shows how tough it is to win again in the rematch.
Nick Saban knows that first-hand — from the losing side.
The last time No. 1 Alabama and No. 3 Georgia played, things could not have gone much better for the Crimson Tide.
Alabama dropped 41 points on the Bulldogs, more than double the next-highest total they have allowed this season, in the Southeastern Conference title game on Dec.
The Georgia Bulldogs aren't the only team having a tough time beating fellow Southeastern Conference powerhouse Alabama.
They're just the only one that gets another shot in the season's biggest game.
Kirby Smart did his best to get ahead of the questions about Nick Saban while acknowledging the topic was inevitable.
It seems the Georgia coach can't avoid Saban, when championships — and Smart's big-game legacy — are on the line.
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Bryce Young is a former five-star recruit who won the Heisman Trophy in his first season as Alabama’s starting quarterback. Stetson Bennett is a former walk-on who became the starter at Georgia and never really lost the confidence of his teammates.
