Timing is everything. So hopefully Georgia officials were too busy backing up Brink’s truck to hear what Kirby Smart had to say during SEC Media Days in Atlanta.

While they were finalizing details on Smart’s new contract, his coach was again lobbying to move the Florida-Georgia game out of Jacksonville.

Of course, it’s hard to ignore the person you’ll be paying $112.5 million over the next 10 years. So when word of Smart’s stump speech got back to Athens, Georgia administrators quietly shook their heads and whispered, “Kirby is Kirby.”

Please, dogs. Give him another $15 million in unmarked NIL bills. Name a new variety of peach after him.

Don’t let Smart talk you into moving the Florida-Georgia game.

Don’t spoil this tradition

Kirby Smart led Georgia to its first national title in four decades last season.

Or is it Georgia-Florida?

It largely depends on which state you live in. Although I grew up in Jacksonville, I was never convinced that the city was south of the state line.

When the conversation turned to football, it seemed as though there were as many Bulldogs as Gators who would get in. That made Jacksonville the perfect location for a frontier battle.
