I hope you’re sitting down for this.
While Georgia is ramping up its football schedule by adding attractive power five conference teams, an FCS opponent that was slated to come to Sanford Stadium now won’t.
Indiana State and Georgia mutually agreed to cancel their game in Sanford Stadium that was scheduled for the 2023 season, Indiana State athletic director Sherard Clinckscales told the Athens Banner-Herald in an email.
That’s right — Butts-Mehre just cancelled a cupcake game. And it’s probably for this:
The only nonconference game currently on the Georgia schedule for 2023 is the annual game with Georgia Tech.
Georgia added games with Florida State in 2027 and 2028 and two more games with Clemson in 2032 and 2033.
Georgia and Oklahoma are in talks about scheduling a game in Norman in 2023, according to The Athletic, with a return game in the next decade. An Oklahoma spokesman last week would say only there are no agreements with Georgia.
Be still my heart. And kudos to those responsible.
BTW, you gotta love Georgia getting out of paying the $500k cancellation fee. No doubt McGarity does.
