Evans said he’s protective of future open dates before the Florida game. In 2007, Georgia had an open date and defeated the Gators. Last year, the Bulldogs played Louisiana State the week before and lost to Florida. This year, Georgia is off before its Oct. 31 contest with the Gators.
“I’m going to protect that open date before Florida as much as I can,” he said.
Right on, brother. For whatever reason, it’s been an exceedingly rare occurrence for the team with a bye week to lose in Jax – regardless of the weather.
