    Odds on McDiggity having us go there first?

    Why do they schedule games like this so far out? You can’t tell me it isn’t possible to set this up 3 or 4 years from now. Fields will have graduated from tOSU by 2031. Maybe.

    2031 will be a fun year (assuming we haven’t cycled back to an era like the 90s).

    Wasn’t OSU on the schedule before and one school or the other cancelled it?

      Urban Meyer canceled it after he became the corch there. Petty bastard.

      “Ohio State cancels series with Georgia set for 2020-2021
      Ohio State and Georgia had agreed to a home-and-home to kick off the next decade. But with both teams’ conferences going through major changes in scheduling, the Buckeyes backed out of that agreement Thursday with Georgia’s blessing.” — May 2012

    With the way the way things are going now, watching a football game at that time will likely be the last thing on anyone’s mind.

    Good to see them on the schedule but not at all a fan of having multiple P5 conf. championship and playoff contenders on the schedule during the same year.

    1 per year should be the model. Titles is the goal.

      I get the strategy as far as setting up for championships. But I’d rather guarantee awesome football every year and accept a tougher path to the playoff, than schedule for an easier shot at the playoff while accepting that the schedule will always be garbage.

      And remember that the “scheduling for championships” mentality is a huge part of why CFB is staring down the crisis of declining interest. It isn’t a novel strategy; it has proliferated across the sport over the last decade or so. Which also means that very few teams are seeing any real benefit from it. As in, if everyone brings guns to the knife fight, it’s just a gun fight. Nobody gained an advantage.

      My hope is that if several of the most powerful schools will walk the walk on this issue, then they can push for a nationwide rule on scheduling better across the board.

        LSU 2011 wins over the PAC and Big East champs lost to Bama for the title. If they didn’t give Oregon a loss maybe they play them in place of Bama.

        Scheduling for championship is a false narrative. CFB still has interesting games every weekend. The real story is football is fading in popularity and fantasy leagues are propping up the NFL. Lowering CFB to 1-2 loss chaos will only further the decline.

      Who’s to say that any of those teams will be any good by the time we play them? Who’s to say UGA will… ?

    • Kirby is convinced the playoff is going to 8. To get a wild card spot, winning with a tough schedule makes winning the SECCG less important in a field of 8.

      The AD just likes the $$$$$ benefit.

  10. Should be awesome assuming the lawsuits from CTE don’t put football out of business first.

    Otherwise, they’ll play NCAA Football on the big screen in Sanford.

    I am sure I’ll able to turn the TV on by then, maybe the nurse in the senior citizen facility will be a fan and change the channel for me. Hope it’s a 12:00 game I’ll need a nap. Looks like I can sleep most Saturdays till 2024.
