So we know about OSU vs USC in LA. Should be a good game.

But don't forget, probable preseason #1 Georgia travels to Tempe to play the Arizona State Sun Devils in a good early season test for one of the National Title favorites.

Georgia football fans are lining up by the thousands to travel to Phoenix for the Bulldogs' longest regular-season road trip in decades, when the team plays at Arizona State University on Sept. 20. Georgia hasn't played a non-bowl game outside of the Southeast since 1967, when the Bulldogs lost 15-14 to the Houston Cougars. Georgia hasn't even traveled outside the states of South Carolina and Georgia for a non-conference road game since 1972. In all those years, the only schools outside the Southeastern Conference Georgia has played on the road are Georgia Tech, Clemson and South Carolina before the Gameprofanityfilterprofanityfilterprofanityfilterp rofanityfilters joined the SEC in 1992. Now, fans by the thousands plan to head to Phoenix in September for what could be a matchup of top 10 teams. Georgia is ranked 1 or 2 in most preseason polls, while the Sun Devils (who actually play in Tempe, a suburb of Phoenix) rank in the top 20. -- Athens Banner-Herald

Agree, its a very good early season matchup between Georgia and Az State. Georgia had Ok State early last season if I remember correctly. Its good to see at least one SEC Team scheduling early, tougher Out of Conference games. Tennessee as well travels to UCLA at some point in the year. And there is the Kentucky Lousiville rivalry game nice and early this season and I think Alabama plays Clemson early on.

I'm really looking foward to the Illinois Missouri rematch from last year as well.

Even though Miami has had a bad couple of seasons, they will be taking on Florida very early.

Florida will crush Miami, and Georgia will destroy ASU as well. But I appreciate teams playing OOC games all the same.

I hope so. Its been a long time since the Gators beat Miami in football. I was at the the last UF-UM game.:banging:

Really? The same way they "crushed" Michigan in the Bowl game last season?

A) It's in the Swamp
B) Miami is a mediocre ACC team (7-6 last year, and they barely beat Houston)
C) Florida is a solid SEC team
D) Michigan wasn't as bad last year as they started

Florida 35
Miami 14

Never one to miss an opportunity...

GQ and several other tomes on men's fashion make it very clear that a well dressed man NEVER wears jean shorts, and the only thing worse is cut-offs. The above site suggests:

The top three fashion crimes a man can commit are:
3. Jean shorts.
2. White jeans with a belt that includes the wearer’s name, a rebel flag, rhinestones or any combination of the three.
1. Pleated jean shorts.

I've also heard them referred to as "jorts".

Good stuff...what it has to do with the Hurricane/Gator game I don't really know, but it's funny as Hell!

Tebow enjoys jorts. Everybody knows that the the gators wear jean shorts

Florida Fan Comes Clean on Jean Shorts
By Jamie Mottram | August 25, 2007


“Gators Wear Jean Shorts” allegedly began in ‘97, when a Georgia fan claims to have said it in response to a Florida heckler prior to that year’s Outdoor profanityfilterprofanityfilterprofanityfilterprofa nityfiltertail Party.

Because I’m reading Travis’ Dixieland Delight and had just watched video of a Georgia toddler saying, “Gators wear jean shorts,” this was top of mind when I tweaked Ryan Ferguson (Orange and Blue Hue, FanHouse) via email about snapping jorts photos in Gainesville this season. His response, published with permission:

“Jean shorts… always the damn jean shorts!

I’ll never admit this to anyone but you, but I used to wear them until we became, uh, infamous for them.

What’s so bad about them, anyway? Tough, functional shorts, strong belt loops and big enough pockets to fit wallet, cell phone and camera. You could spill beer on ‘em or any other noxious fluid, and you could just run ‘em through the washer and wear them again the next week. Now I wear saggy khaki shorts which stain easily and don’t last a whole season.

I miss jorts.

It could be worse. They say LSU fans smell like corn dogs. (It’s true. How is that possible?)

I will deny this if you ever bring it up.

Awesome. Gators fans are so maligned for wearing jean shorts that some of them have stopped wearing them altogether. Happened to the the rest of us back in ‘93, and it’s happening to Gator Nation in ‘07.

In any case, jorts aren’t even Florida’s only crime against fashion, just their most notable. Mandals (sandals with socks) also appear to be all the rage in The Swamp, and collarless denim shirts are cool too.

Yeah find pictures of old guys. Old guys all over the nation still wear jean shorts. Georgia has no room to talk. They wear RED dress pants to football games.

That looked alot like tebow wearing the jean shorts. I like the red pants. i do not wear them to games but its great to see folks wearing red and black. My favorite was seeing all of the pissed off aubrun fans last year during the blackout.

Wow, MAJOR fashion faux pas in pics #2 and #3. Cut-offs and pleated jorts. Youch!

Also, smelling like corndogs can't be a good thing...who wants to smell like hillbilly fair food?
