Honestly, do any of y’all feel this?
No. 3 Georgia and No. 7 Notre Dame are both steeped in rich tradition, but they don’t have much real history together, not as far as actual on-field meetings go. Yet their matchup Saturday feels like one filled with the bad blood, pettiness and season-changing implications that go hand-in-hand with rivalry games.
The “bad blood” evidently is supposed to extend from last year’s CFP, which the Irish made and Dawgs didn’t. Not sure who’s feeling that now, especially after Georgia laid an egg in the Sugar Bowl.
This just seems like the kind of trumped up stuff Mickey loves to invent, because it’s not enough to have a first-time meeting in Athens between two great programs that both come in ranked in the top ten. I’ve got the feeling I’ll be really glad I can’t watch College GameDay Saturday.
