So where do you live since, per your statement "the beach to Jax. = ~1 hr.". Some of us don't have the luxury of getting that time free to do nothing for a week.

I'm pretty sure the team & equipment take the same plane/transportation to/from the airports.

& I never said the players moved the equipment.....just taking the same transportation.

Naw screw that. Jacksonville makes this game unique. Home and Homes just make it another rivalry game. Loses it's luster quite a bit.


Agreed. People who want this moved are people who have never gone tailgating. And make no mistake, even if there aren't any fans allowed in the stands, fans will still descend upon Jacksonville for this game.

It is the biggest event every year in Jacksonville. In Atlanta, it would be just another weekend. I don't believe Atlanta would loosen their open container laws for the weekend like Jacksonville does.

Let's see...UGA would have to leave early the morning of or the night before. UF drives 1 hr. the morning of....so no need to rush for the Swamp Rats.

I'm saying this game is almost 120 YEARS old. So, to say the school PURPOSELY adjusts their calendar around it makes no sense.

Again, Fl's record has nothing to do with UGA's school calendar...unless your saying their school calendar factors into that stat.

So now alcohol is a factor in the location.

Are you talking players or fans?

Players.

Can be fans, but mostly referring to players.

1906. UF didn’t have a team until 1906. Playing some frat boys don’t count.

George players don't get there the morning or even the night before the game and pretty sure Gators don't either. Both do Friday walkthroughs.

BTW,you do know UGA players don't sleep in their own dorms or homes on the Friday nt before games in Athens, correct? So what difference does it make if they stay in a similar environment the night before the game in Jacksonville?

At the time, I lived in gwinnett. And I was happy to spend a week at Tybee.

If you dont have the luxury of 1 week away from your home, I'm sorry for you. My next trip was a 2 nighter in Jax.

Florida should probably cancel their frats for claiming to be the florida football program. Disowning them after the go 0-5 sounds kind of disingenuous

The school calendar factors into how important the game in Jacksonville is.

How many times does this need to be repeated?

Actually UF is 5 H and 4 away 1 neutral.. UGA is the designated home team.
