Swinney Says UGA-Clemson Game Could Shift To A Monday; But That’s Not Likely

Aug31-iCalYesterday, Clemson coach Dabo Swinney suggested his team’s 2013 season-opener with Georgia could be moved from Saturday, August 31st to Labor Day Monday as a made-for-ESPN event.  Not surprising.  Thanks to the folks at ESPN we now have college football games on just about every night of the week.

But don’t go marking UGA-Clemson down as a midweek game yet.

Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity said yesterday he was “not aware” of a potential move.  And outgoing UGA president Michael Adams recently made this declaration regarding non-weekend games: “We won’t do it home or away.  I think Monday through Friday are for education and I think Saturday is appropriate for football.”

Another problem regarding such a move?  Georgia will host South Carolina the following Saturday to open SEC play.  And if Mark Richt has the option of a full week or a partial week of practice before that meaningful game, you can bet he’ll pick the full week.

So Dawg fans, if you’re planning on driving over to Clemson for your squad’s season-opener, your probably won’t have to change your travel schedule at all.  Regardless of what Swinney said to USA Today.

I like the fact that football is most constrained to Sat and Sun.  It means I get to watch almost all the games I want to while not having to blow off work or other obligations.  By the end of this season I was at the point of football exhaustion from it being almost every night now.    @jameskeith  really man?  Shameful is a little over the line don't you think?  How many times has this site ever blown off blown off even a minor story?

 @JamesKeith Last I checked, none of us are paying a fee to read this website.

 

On the USC DL topic, however, I too felt that coach Ward stepped over the line with the "more than football" comment. Brad Lawing has been an assistant at USC for nearly 20 years, so I don't think he owes anyone an explanation if he wants to leave, and if he does want to explain it, he doesn't need his boss to do it. In the past few years, Lawing has done a great job of coaching what has been one of the league's premier d-lines. And it goes well beyond Clowney.

@JamesKeith Geez, who pissed in your Cheerios? Regarding the schedule, if Georgia has any kind of contractual authority to veto changes, then I completely agree that it would make zero sense to give yourself a short week before South Carolina.
