Absolutely. I can't believe it is already rivalry week. Soon we will be waiting for September again.

I don't think we are ever going to play UF out of the state of Florida again.

I just hope UGA gets through GT without to many injuries. Playing 2 triple option teams in a row is going to be hell on their knees.

Haven't you heard? Playing out of state is just not something we do...

No joke.

I still have not been to the Geogia Florida game. I am going next year. It is a bucket list thing for me, and every year I am too busy and say there is always next year. I will be there next year though.

Of course we will probably lose if I decide to finally show up for one.

I hope so.



I grew up in Jax so went to MANY. When I was a young'n I was even at the one that Dooley ran Walker almost every play and UGA won 44-0.....AND....in 1984 when we broke a 6 game losing streak..Bell to Nattiel....That was the last time the goal posts came down. Too much security ever since.

I've always hated Georgia. I think I'm going to start making plans for next year in Jax. My mother will appreciate it.

"Once those refs are paid... anything can happen. Coach will tell his boys.. "you can hold all you want to tonight. the refs aint gonna call it." Some refs became very rich today."

" But, I will be pulling for the SEC champion in the National Game. I don't believe that Notre Dame would even have a winning record in the SEC. There has been a lot of money invested to keep them winning. But Bama has a lot of money also and all I can say is that there will be some wealthy refs coming out of this game. I wonder what the outcome will be if Bama buys some of the refs and Notre Dame buys the rest. Could be interesting. Georgia does not have the cash of either Bama or Notre Dame."
You're basing your hatred of one team based on one asshat's Facebook posting? Two comments: first, turn your Alabama degree back in and two, get the fuck off Facebook. The reality train left you at the station.

Plus 1.

Hey, you only get half credit. I'm the "some woman" who earned the other half.

And, PS, I disappear during the week because I'm busy raising two young boys and trying not to strangle 19 year olds while maintaining my 4.0 at Buttchugger U. It's not my fault the SEC is just too freaking awesome for words.

If Florida and Georgia played that game ten times, Florida would win nine of them.

4 Years ago I would have agreed. The teams are much closer now than the have been in awhile. It would end up 50/50. And by the 4th game the ball boys and water boys would be out there playing because the rest of the players would be to beat up to finish.

Yep. Georgia used to own the series. Florida used to own the series. I think it's back to being a good rivalry again. Either team could win and it's usually one of the most critical games in the SEC East. The East goes through Jax. The Gamecocks will not stick around forever and Tenn will not be irrelevant forever. GA / FL should always be an important game.

found a nice gif of what happened to Barkley. hurt his right shoulder. hopefully not serious, but this was insult to injury by this point in the game when it was pretty much over. I don't know how Barr comes in unblocked. He's only our best player on the entire D.

Barkley must have pissed off whoever number 70 is for the Trojans. That guy was blocking no one.

+1. Nice read.

Six points and Boise State would be undefeated and messing again w/the BCS. Instead Mrs. Snow has heartburn and blows her appendix while watching the San Diego State loss.

Pretty good fun. Now...........what about the Big East shakedown? Big 10...........little 14??? As much as I like Temple we need to stay in the MW and pay BYU to rejoin.
