UGA And Clemson Might Not Meet In 2013 And 2014 After All

Georgia-Clemson is a classic Southern rivalry.  Unfortunately, it’s no longer played nearly as often as it used to be.  Dawg fans, Tiger fans, and SEC fans of a certain age — of which I’m one — remember the 5-5-1 split between the juggernaut programs from 1978 through 1990.

Unfortunately, it appears that conference expansion and realignment might cost fans a renewal of the series.  The Athens Banner-Herald reports that UGA and Clemson officials have held talks about nixing their planned bouts in 2013 and 2014.

“I don’t think Clemson knows exactly where things stand as far as expansion but we’re just trying to see the lay of the land because we know that they’re going to expand at nine (conference) games at some point in time,” Georgia AD Greg McGarity said.  “When that is, we’re just trying to stay ahead of it.  We’ve had a few discussions on the phone about where things stand and we’re just waiting to hear back from Clemson on what their plans are in the future.”

McGarity would like to play the games if the SEC sticks to an eight-game league schedule.

“Word is we’re leaning towards staying with eight games and if we stay at eight games, sure, we’d like to keep it intact, but I’m not sure what that would do for a team that has nine games.  They’re certainly not going to drop South Carolina.”
