Hey guys. Been a while.
Not trying to use hyperbole, but tomorrow night’s game against Kentucky is the biggest basketball game in Stegeman Coliseum since Georgia beat Florida way back in the spring of 2003, that from my memory, was a thrilling game. I was a Senior in High School, just found out that I had been accepted to UGA, and was watching that game on TV with the electric atmosphere and thinking to myself, “I can’t wait to be a part of that.”
I was wrong. There hadn’t been a game with that kind of importance at Stegeman since then. Sure, there have been some fun games, but none like that one.
Tomorrow night is the first big game like that in Athens in a long time. 12 years.
