Welcome to the Party............

In a little less than 24 hours, more than 82,000 Floridians and Georgians will converge upon Alltel Stadium in Jacksonville to bear witness to a college football game featuring the Bulldogs of Georgia ---and the Gators of Florida. Another 10 to 15 thousand, unlucky enough to get inside -- will be spread out from St Simon's Island, Georgia -- to St Augustine, Florida. Welcome to the "World's largest Outdoor Cocktail Party". The first game played in Jacksonville was in 1912.....or 1915......depending on which web site you believe. Georgia won 39-0. Since 1933, all games were played in Jacksonville except for 1994 & 1995 when Alltel was being built. Supposedly a neutral site--- Jacksonville is 73 miles from the Gainesville, Florida campus --- it is 342 miles from Athens, Georgia ( home of the Dogs).

Even after losing 15 out of the last 17 meetings --- Georgia still holds the all time lead in the series --- 45-37-2.

Georgia has had a bye week prior to tomorrows game but is still a 10 point underdog. We think the gators have way too much offense for this young bulldog team.......Gators 34-21
