Once more, the world was spinning in greased grooves.

With all the uncertainty and mucking around with scheduling we’ve seen in the past few post-expansion months, at least nobody’s screwed with this.

Florida will face Georgia at 3:30 on Saturday, Oct. 27, in Jacksonville, CBS and the Southeastern Conference announced today. It marks the 10th consecutive season that the two SEC East rivals will meet in front of a national audience on CBS.

Ahhhh.

    While the South Carolina game has become important and our rivalrys with Auburn and Tech are sacred–THIS is by far the most important game for this Bulldog–I know lots of folks think we have to win a MNC–but beat Florida and it is a good year for me

    Ahhh this just made me giddy. 87 days til kickoff…

    This is good to read. The 12:30 games during the Zook years were brutal

    I believe it was the year the WLOCP was a night game on ESPN that triggered this. Neither school was wild about some of the (alleged) debauchery that took place, so they petitioned the SEC, CBS, or both to make this game a 3:30 kickoff permanently.

      Being a younger Bulldog fan, I can only imagine how amazing tailgating for that game must have been.

        Wow, this makes me feel old.

        And yes, it was amazing. Virginia Tech, Notre Dame, and NC State (all undefeated) lost before we kicked off, leaving only three other undefeated teams (Ohio State, Miami, and Oklahoma; Urban Meyer’s Bowling Green team didn’t count) other than us.

        And as amazing as it was before the game, it was ten times as terrible after the game.

      I wasn’t wild about the Greene-to-Edwards derp that took place.

    It’s not a good thing that I could’ve told you off the top of my head the last time we kicked off the WLOCP at a time other than 3:30.

    It haunts.

    Spinning in greased grooves (SIGG) is perhaps the best term I’ve heard to describe the Friday night before this game.

    • to put way too precise a point on the Quote , it is from the movie Cannery Row with Nick Nolte and Debra Winger and the exact quote is “once again the world is spinning in its properly greased grooves” Best scene is when a despondent Nolte orders and drinks a beer float and when asked how it was responds,”best I ever had”
