Good Early Season Game Part II
 
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.

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!
