More Talk About Moving The UF-UGA Game

The question of whether or not Georgia and Florida will continue to play in Jacksonville beyond 2010 came up yesterday at a meeting of the executive committee of the UGA Athletic Associaton board of directors.  (Do they really need that long of a title?)

President Michael Adams said “it’s not one of those (decisions) that is 90-10,” suggesting the Bulldog fanbase is much more split on the idea of moving the game.

Athletic director Damon Evans admitted, “It changes a little bit (depending on) how we compete down there.  The year in which we do well, I don’t hear as much about it.  The year we lose, it’s ‘We got to go.’”

Adams said that the thing that has always made him lean toward keeping the game in Jacksonville is UGA’s south Georgia fan base “who say this is their best chance to see a live game.”

Georgia officials have already had preliminary conversations with the mayor of Jacksonville.  According to Adams, “There are things we want yet out of the city of Jacksonville that can even the playing field a bit.”
