UGA doesn't consider us a major rival, if a rival at all. They care more about the Florida, Auburn, Georgia Tech, and Tennessee games than they care about our game. The thought of playing them in the last game of the season is laughable.

I don't know who you're listening to.

The SEC will most likely shift to a 9-game SEC schedule as it catches on with other conferences. The increase in a conference game is supposedly going to give advantages to the conferences who have those extra games as far as the selection committee is concerned. So as the B1G and ACC add another conference game, the SEC will have to follow suit.

The major goal of the addition is to increase strength of schedule. A major component of SOS is your non conference schedule. SEC teams are going to be encouraged to schedule tougher non-con opponents similar to the B1G stating they will no longer play FCS opponents. Clemson provides us with an excellent out of conference matchup that makes perfect sense because it is a historical rivalry. If we dropped Clemson, we would have to go out an find another upper-level Pac 12, B1G, ACC or Big 12 team to play. This would make absolutely zero sense and will never happen.

I like where we play Georgia now. I don't think it needs to be played at the end of the season to increase the level of the "rivalry." Continued success by both programs will do just that.

Isn't there a bill in our state legislator to keep us and Clemson playing? I wonder whatever happened to that.

Default Re: Is it time to play Georgia last?

After their yearly beating it seems GT fans either want to stop playing us and go play Georgia Southern or Georgia State. The other idea they float out is moving the game to the beginning of season so if they get their wish to become irrelevant in their own state maybe we have an opening.

At this rate, Clemson should be our homecoming game so that we notch an easy win.

And, yes, Georgia at the end of the season would be freaking awesome.

It would kill Clemson if we did like Texas A&M and dropped Clemson from our schedule like A&M dropped the University of Texas.

It ain't killing Texas.

And that rivalry is not comparable to ours.

No. UGA did they opposite of what they usually do this year. They fumble around for a couple games and pull it together in the end. This year was definitely the outlier, they are usually much harder to play at the end of the season.

Default Re: I think one of the issues may be that

not many people outside our state care about the rivalry. It helps the winning team when both teams are ranked. This years Iron Bowl was special. Just because the win streak is on your side, don't downplay the importance. I don't remember any SC fans that wanted to end the series after 2002-05; they wanted revenge. As long as CU is in the ACC, they should roll into the rivalry game ranked, so that can't hurt strength of schedule.

Default Re: Is it time to play Georgia last?

I have to agree with most others. Play UGA at the beginning of the season. They typically don't play as well early and have guys suspended. Last couple of games for us against Florida and Clemson are tough enough. No need to add a UGA team that is generally playing well at the end of the season.

This year may have been the first time the Iron Bowl dictated who would go to the SEC championship. If it wasn't the first, it's been a pretty rare occasion.

After the ending the other night there's no way we get much press. Bottom line. That game killed us. So did the Tennessee game. I'll never in my life understand how we lost to that crowd.

Yes but the last four iron Bowl winners (not counting this year) were the national champions.
It's a much more nationally relevant rivalry is all he was trying to say.

But that game is a tradition for thousands of families all across the state. The cherry on top of football season.

How about lets start making the SEC Conf Champ game more often, then our final regular season game WILL be a ranked SEC opponent!
