It’s contract negotiating time with Jacksonville again. And it looks like Georgia is going back to its role of being the coy date.
“Every year the questions arise: Do we move back to a home-and-home series or move it back to Jacksonville,” said Frank Crumley, Georgia’s executive associate athletic director for finance and administration. “We address that every time and it’s not totally decided by us. We have discussions with (Florida officials] and the city of Jacksonville and have to present that back to our athletic board for review and approval.
“It’s still too early to tell what the sentiment is.”
Well, I’ve got some sentiment right here for you, Frank: don’t screw this up. As long as this is nothing but a negotiating ploy to squeeze the city, fine. It’s certainly worked before, quite successfully as a matter of fact. But, please, please, please, don’t take the game out of J’ville. It just won’t have the same luster if you do.
