    I'm about 60-40 in favor of keeping it in Jax and am a big time traditionalist. A home/home would be fun, but it eventually will diminish the rivalry to the same level as Tenn or Auburn: big rivalries yes, but no longer the WLOCP. As far as economics for locals go a home/home is a wash, if not worse since the economic income for ACC would only be every other year. The southern locales, however, greatly benefit from that one last economic push before Winter slow down, and the home/home will do away with that. Recruiting also, would be a wash. yes, Kirby would get that extra home game to host, however, it hasn't noticeably impacted his efforts so far. How many misses in the past 8 years would have had their minds changed by visiting Athens for a UF game? The more important issue for recruiting, to me, is to get the Auburn/Tenn home games back to alternate years (obviously depending on new schedule). Finally, as far as it being a "home" game for UF, that is only a minor factor when it comes to logistics/transportation. Once the day of game experience starts, it's neutral - tailgating, fans, bands, pre-game, pageantry, locker rooms. As a traditionalist, I feel the college game as i've loved it for 5 decades is slipping away. NIL, TP, conference re-alignment, playoffs, rule changes, while all have some benefit, slowly chip away from things that make the game special and unique. I just hope they don't get completely to the point of being the NFL "light".
