Gawd bless Champ Bailey, who, in response to a question about the Cocktail Party’s neutral-site nature, had this to say:
… I did get to see a point in the mid-nineties, I think they were renovating the stadium in Jacksonville, so we got to see it in Athens one year and in Gainesville one year, so that was kind of unique. I don’t know, it’s just something special playing in a neutral site. Georgia-Florida, neutral site, long border, big rivalry game. Why not play at a neutral site? I love those type of traditions in football. So why mess up a good thing?
Then again, maybe Champ’s secretly taken up golf.
