    I'm sorry, but the relevance of the GA-FLA game has really diminished over the last decade. College football has changed considerably and with the divisions gone, there are many more important rivalries than this game. Unfortunately, Jacksonville is driving this car and not Josh Brooks or Kirby Smart. The game should move to home-and-home for eternity after 2025. It makes little sense any longer to have the game in J'ville, which is nothing but a home game for the Gators.

    I agree 100%. Jax is running Josh Brooks. Enough is enough. This is a blatant money grab by UGA at the expense of Athens and the State of GA. To play the game in a sub standard Gator Bowl while it is being renovated or not even in Jax is a sham.

    Time to write the Chancellor of the Georgia University system. Who is, by the way, Former GA Governor Sonny Purdue. Ya think the former governor is receptive to bringing some financial prosperity to the state for a change?

    It also may be time to discontinue all donations to the STATE university until Josh Brooks and his cronies start to get the message.

    I agree that the FU/UGA rivalry is not UGA's biggest. It may have been in the 90's when FU owned UGA. Now AL/UGA is UGA's biggest rivalry. Has been since UGA hired CKS. It is too bad that CKS won't have a chance to even his record against CNS.

    Home and home is LOOOOOONG over due…..what dumbarse thinks an Orlando/Atlanta rather than a home and home makes sense?

    "$1.4 stadium deal", that's a lot of money.

    The UGA leadership needs to support Arhens bisinesses instead of those in Jacksonville. Home and away is much more fun for most of the Bulldog Nation and it will help Coach Smart in recruiting… Jacksonville Florida is the opposite of a neutral site.

    $1.4M is 1/3 of the money we are paying Lambo Beck this year…

    Move this game to home and home period…enough of the game being in FL at that dump in JAX. In the meantime, bring these off campus games back on to campus…why is GA and CLempsum not being played in Athens or in the cowpaddy of Clempsum ? For Gods sake college football should be played on campus not in a boring DOME.
