I wonder how many fans will pass out due to heat exhaustion thanks to the SEC and their infinite wisdom. Not to mention all the bars and vendors who stand to lose tons of money by not having fans around until 6:00 to "drink up". This is a poor way to treat the defending national champions and their fans.

I was considering going to this game, but my decision has been made. No way am I going to do that to myself! Those SEC guys in their shirts and ties should be made to sit in the student section during the entirety of the game. I bet they wouldn't make this decision again if they did.

Oh please, you sound like a disgruntled Georgia bulldog or something. Urban Meyer is a great coach and seems to be a good solid family man. He doesn't "make" anyone into anything...these boys have choices, and he tried to guide them to make the right ones. But he can't hold their hands all day.

Haha...I'll never forget my senior year when the homecoming game against SC (pre-Spurrier) was moved to 1 pm. Nothing worse than a hangover on three hours' sleep in 100-degree weather in the Swamp at 1 pm!!

I'm flying in from DC for the game. I'm not sure what will be more expensive; eating my airline ticket and watching the game at the air conditioned DC Gator Club of Washington, DC gathering in Alexandria, VA. or coming to the game and spending the night hydrating at Shands Hospital. Decisions, decisions...
