Let’s be candid for a moment, shall we?
The weather Saturday is going to suck.
So what? If it is rainy, cold and dreary, I hope our fans still show up and GET LOUD!
A big key to victory Saturday is going to be a raucous home field advantage.
Georgia has done better in the big home games, and the improved environment at Sanford Stadium has assisted that improvement. South Carolina and LSU in 2013, Clemson and Auburn last year, and South Carolina two weeks ago were great environments.
Now, the University is going to try their best to dampen the mood. Shutting down tailgating on campus locations to protect the turf is ridiculous. PLANT MORE GRASS! Laying sod isn’t exactly rocket science. I’ve done it. And not that expensive. Encouraging fans who don’t have tickets not to come to campus? Wanting fans to take Athens transit buses? Have you ever?
It’s gonna rain. Prepare accordingly. It’s called a raincoat. I bought a pair of duck boots yesterday. Been wanting to get some for a while and this pushed me over the top.
Wipe the sand out.
Anticipation for these kinds of games is what gets us through the cold days in February.
Get to campus. Drink booze. Be loud.
Rain be damned.
