Georgia to open 2019 football season at Vandy

NCAA Football: Georgia at Vanderbilt Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

The Georgia Bulldogs will begin the 2019 football season on August 31 in Nashville against the Vanderbilt Commodores. They will end the regular season campaign with a rough stretch of physics football games certain to test the Red and Black’s depth.

A few early thoughts:

There had been some speculation that Georgia and Vandy would play their game on a Thursday night. I’m not against Thursday night games per se, but if we’re going to play one I want it to be coming off a bye and before a game in which two extra days gives us a needed advantage. Maybe some other time.

Arkansas State still has the looks of a sneaky tough warm up for Notre Dame to me.

Byes before Tennessee and Florida? I’ll take it. I suspect the Vols and Gators will each be better in year two under their respective new staffs.

That November looks challenging. I never take the Cocktail Party lightly. Playing at Auburn is never easy (well, rarely). I expect Jimbo will have Texas A&M headed in the right direction, and I never relish playing the Trade School coming off four physical conference games in a row.

This is as good a home schedule as you should expect to see as a Bulldog fan. Other than Murray State there's not a game in there that you shouldn't be a little excited to see. The Notre Dame/A&M two game set should be worth your Hartman Fund donation alone.

Feel free to include your thoughts on the 2019 slate in the comments, and...

Go ‘Dawgs!!!
