Just when it appeared that news about UGA football was slowing down almost to halt — like it does almost every year after February’s signing day until spring practice — there was a bombshell dropped about the Auburn-Georgia game possibility being moved.
You can read the inside info about the possible move in this story by DawgNation’s Mike Griffith.
How did social media react? It’s seems like most UGA fans are against the move, if only for the fact that this is Auburn’s request — and not from the Bulldogs. With that said, UGA coach Kirby Smart reportedly favors a date change, so maybe more UGA fans will get on board with this idea.
What’s your thoughts? Please post below in the comments section.
Here’s some opinions from social media:
I just cannot imagine sweating during the Georgia/Auburn football game.
Both literally and figuratively…

Moving Georgia-Auburn to September or October is the sensible solution. Switching the home/away rotation would require more changes throughout the future SEC scheduling matrix. The Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry defining the landscape of the season is going to be fun.

This is trash. Nothing like Georgia-Auburn in November.
Auburn acts like Georgia and Alabama play them back to back, when every year they have The Citadel in between. https://t.co/hlo1GQb9aH

This is also stupid. Zero benefit for Georgia. While also never receiving a payback for having played back-to-back games at Auburn. Kirby should not allow this.
