Those of you who think ending the Cocktail Party will merely cost Georgia $3 million every two years, a sum that the school can easily afford, aren’t really thinking through the math.
The Dawgs will pick up a home conference game every other season, true, but will still be left filling a gap when Florida hosts in Gainesville. That gap will either be plugged with a marquee home-and-home series, which means scheduling another road game without revenue, a neutral site game to replace a neutral site game, or a one-off home game against a cupcake.
Those aren’t free, peeps.
So if the school goes the cupcake route, you’re really talking about more than a three million-dollar swing in revenue in one year. I don’t know about you, but where I come from, that’s considered real money.
