You know, sometimes the SEC really just means more.
On Easter Sunday, one pastor decided to highlight the differences between good and evil by using two SEC football teams. The pastor used Georgia to represent the image of good. As for evil or sin, the pastor went with the Florida Gators.

The Georgia-Florida rivalry truly is a 365-day-a-year rivalry. Though it’s worth pointing out that the pastor, Sean Seay of Athens Church, was clearly joking according to DawgNation’s Chip Towers who was in attendance.
This spring, Florida coach Dan Mullen has taken multiple swipes at the Georgia football program, whether it be for how Georgia handled the Justin Fields transfer situation or Florida trolling Georgia with its spring game attendance number.
When Smart was asked about Mullen’s antics, Smart preferred to just stay focused on his own team. As a head coach, Smart is 2-0 against Dan Mullen. Smart’s teams have won by a combined score of 67-20 in the two matchups.
The last two times these two teams have met on the football field, it has been decidedly one-sided. The Bulldogs have won by a combined score of 78-24 in each of the last two games against Florida. As DawgNation’s Brandon Adams likes to remind people, it’s been 904 days since Florida has beaten Georgia.
The two SEC East rivals meet every year in Jacksonville, Fla. The 2019 contest is scheduled for Nov. 2. Georgia wrapped up its spring game on Saturday. The Bulldogs open their 2019 season on Aug. 31 when they take on Vanderbilt. Florida takes on Miami on Aug. 24.
