To reiterate something I posted about yesterday, this strikes me as kind of sad.
Both Smart and Jennings have shared their LSU experiences with Georgia’s players this week. Playing in Tiger Stadium is almost a mythical proposition for players of SEC Eastern Division teams that don’t play LSU as a cross-division rival. Because of the current eight-game SEC schedule model, the Bulldogs will be making their first trip to Baton Rouge since 2008 and won’t return until 2030.
“All of those guys who have played there previous years have told us it’s going to be a great environment and it’s going to be a hard-nosed game,” senior wideout Terry Godwin said. “This is what you come to the SEC for, to play in games like this. It’s going to be a great game.”
He’s right. Which is why it shouldn’t be something experienced every other decade by fans or players. It’s pathetic that someone has to describe a conference game as “almost a mythical proposition for players”, SEC. The conference should offer something better than that.
