At 5:10 p.m. Eastern, roughly two hours from now, I am scheduled to call in to John Frary's ESPN Radio show on 1420 AM out of St. Augustine.
If you're in the area, tune in, and, otherwise, follow the above link to listen.
As Jason Kirk points out in the article, watching the Cotton and Sugar Bowls fight over who hosts this is going to be absolutely perfect. Geographically, it's a slam dunk, from a style of play and also a travel standpoint. It possibly renews old rivalries (you think Texas vs. A&M wasn't referenced?) and will mean big money for whoever hosts it.
Since details are light, what are your initial thoughts on this?
What is it with the Bulldogs always welcoming new teams to the SEC on the road?
Next year, the Georgia men's tennis team opens the conference schedule by hosting Tennessee, too. (Hat tip: Team Speed Kills.)
Florida sources say the Gators are interested in preserving their yearly series with LSU. That feared 10-4 vote may be a 9-5 vote, or more likely even an 8-6 vote (since new Eastern Division member Missouri wants to play new Western Division member Texas A&M every autumn), which would mean skilled athletic directors Greg McGarity and Jeremy Foley only need to bring along two more votes. Stay tuned. . . .
