I know it’s a relatively minor thing, but I want to give Damon Evans a pat on the back for something.
It’s a pleasure to read a story about the reluctance of SEC teams to travel for non-conference games without Georgia being mentioned. Instead, we get this:
… We’d like to see SEC teams, with their wealth of talent and top-notch teams, get out and show other parts of the country how great they are at playing football. BCS champion Florida, for example, hasn’t played an out-of-state nonconference game since Sept. 21, 1991, when it lost at Syracuse, 38-21.
Excuse me while I pull out my fingers and toes for a moment. Seventeen years – that’s a long time, isn’t it?
