As we all know, and as we’re constantly reminded by several commenters here, Georgia is on a three-game losing streak against Florida. So here’s my question for those of you who continue to point the finger at the venue as an underlying cause for underachievement in the series: what would Georgia’s record in those three games be had the series been played on a home-and-home basis?
Let’s assume that Gainesville would have hosted the 2014 and 2016 meetings and Athens would have been the site for the 2015 game. (After all, that fits in with another narrative about how playing the Gators home and home would make for a better schedule in odd-numbered seasons.) If playing away is bad news for the Dawgs, it would seem logical to assume two out-of-state losses right off the bat, which leaves me wondering if starting Bauta in between the hedges would have made any difference in the other game.
In other words, I think we’d still be staring at an 0-3 record in a home-and-home scenario. What am I missing here?
