imageGeorgia football will not attend White House after declining invitation

The 2022 Georgia football team will not be making a trip to the White House. The Biden administration invited a number of NCAA championship teams, but Georgia elected to decline the invite due to the timing of the date, which is set for June 12. Georgia first received its White House invitation on May 3.

    Meeting the president or a big politician used to be something to be proud of; but now we know 9/10 of them are dirtier than the bottom of my shoe after an afternoon in the student section of Sandford Stadium, and only care about them and their donors. To make things worse the past two presidents have made a sh!t show of the office.

    Waste of time to go. Hopefully one day, it’s again something to be proud of.

    Good call, Kirby.

    Surely there are some teams deserving of participation trophies that would be better suited to meet with President Biden.

    Call me old-fashion but I believe as a huge Dawg fan that when your team is invited to the White House you go, no matter the disruption to your routine. It would be an experience and honor many of these young men will never have another chance at.

    Great call UGA Andmin....It would have been a tremendous embarrassment as I'm sure the bungling buffoon we have as PODUS would have confused the DGD's present with the winner of the Westminster Dog Show and regaled all with fictional tales of his gridiron prowess when he was Captain of the U of D Blue Hen's.

    Can you simpletons set aside your personal political slants for a moment and recognize that an invite from the White House.........REGARDLESS OF WHICH SIDE IS IN CONTROL.........is an honor that should be respected and received if at all possible?

    They've been national champions since January. There wasn't an earlier date?

    Maybe FOTUS will invite the 2nd team in our place. 7-65, probably not - but that would be a hoot.

    It's too bad they can't make it but perfectly understandable 5 months after the game on a month's notice when many of the players will have left for NFL, transfer destinations, jobs, etc., and it was not an exclusive invitation for the football champions, which probably left little or no room for date negotiation. The calendar for football players, coaches, staff, etc. is insane. Guess we have to win another natty and push for a quick visit. The last football champion to go went in January I think. Go DAWGS !!!
