For those of you who’ve complained over the years about the disparity in travel between Georgia and Florida for this week’s game, how does this news sit?
For the first time since head coach Mark Richt took the Georgia job in 2001, the Bulldogs will travel to Jacksonville on a Thursday.
School won’t be in session at the university on Friday, meaning Georgia has the opportunity to get down to Saturday’s site a day in advance. The thinking behind this is to ensure the players get enough rest leading into this week’s game against Florida.
Georgia will look to leave for Jacksonville on Thursday evening.
“We felt we could get in there and get a good night sleep and let them sleep in a little bit Friday and then get into our normal routine on Friday,” Richt said.
Going down on Thursday? Hey, that’s worked for me and my group for 35 years now. Can’t hurt.
