College Football News has posted a handy scheduling guide to all (but Mississippi’s) of the SEC spring games this year. It looks like April 18th is the big day, with seven schools playing then.
Georgia’s G-Day is scheduled for the 11th.

I saw on georgiadogs.com that it shows the spring game on ESPN. Is that correct?
Last year was so great because it was the first G Day Game that wasn’t held on Masters Saturday. I had hoped CMR would see the advantage of this for future G Day dates. I love me some UGA football, as much or more than anyone, but a scrimmage doesn’t compare with the intensity of a Masters weekend. Had the weather forecast not been so bad last year, I feel we would have had over 50K. We still had a nice sized crowd, but nothing like we will get if we remove the Masters conflict. The 2 greatest sporting events in the state of Georgia is UGA football (collectively), and The Masters. I hate to miss G Day, but I will have to catch the taped version that night.
I agree with you about conflict with Masters weekend. Living just across the river from Augusta the Masters is my second most anticipated day of the year. However I remember CMR making comments about how he likes the set up and how it works out with spring break or something to that effect. I doubt we’ll see it changed any time soon. Would be nice though.
Sorry, but golf and intensity just don’t belong in the same sentence. Masters weekend is a good time for me, since I have to clear our of Disgusta that week anyway.
Brian, reasonable people can disagree so I respect your opinion. I don’t know if you have ever played competitive golf, but I can say that a pressure shot/putt in golf with a crowd watching is perhaps the most intense stress I have ever experienced in sports (limited to football, baseball, basketball, golf, tennis, and bowling.) No one else to lay responsibility on, nor competitor that can be credited for just beating you. It is all on you, totally. If you have ever been there you would know why intense is pretty accurate.
Intense = winning the U.S. Open by making birdie on the 72nd hole, then winning in sudden death after an 18-hole playoff, on a fractured leg and torn-up knee.
Intense is having to get it past the red tee or pull Captain Winkie out.
