Looking Ahead at Non-Conference Foes

Got this from UGA's athletics department today, and while there aren't many surprises here, I figured I'd pass it along.

Here are the scheduled non-conferece games for UGA during the next few years -- with the exceptions of the annual Georgia Tech game.

You can find the complete future schedules at Sic Em Dawgs. The only game here not listed officially on the Sic Em Dawgs list is the North Texas game in 2013.

Sept. 4, 2010 – University of Louisiana Lafayette, Athens (875,000)
Oct. 2, 2010 – University of Colorado, Boulder (825,000)
Nov. 6, 2010 – Idaho State University, Athens (525,000)
Sept. 3, 2011 -- University of Louisville, Athens (250,000)
Sept. 17, 2011 – Coastal Carolina, Athens (475,000)
Nov. 5, 2011 – New Mexico State University, Athens (925,000)
Sept. 15, 2012 – University of Louisville, Louisville (250,000)
Aug. 31, 2013 – University of North Texas, Athens (975,000)
Date TBA, 2013 – Appalachian State University, Athens (325,000)
Sept. 5, 2015 – University of Oregon, Eugene (350,000)
Sept. 10, 2016 -- University of Oregon, Athens (350,000)

UPDATE: A few of you asked -- the numbers in parenthesis to the right is the amount to be paid to the visiting team per the contract terms on the games. So UGA gets $350k when it goes to Oregon and returns the favor in Athens.

I know this is getting ahead of ourselves, but take a gander at the 2012 schedule. Is it correct? We will play a non-conference game at home on 9/1 then three straight road games against USC, Louisville, and Alabama.

Our open date is either the week before or after Florida, followed by 2 more road SEC games and Tech @ home to close out the year.

The SEC schedule is brutal -
@ Alabama
Ole Miss
Florida in Jax
@ Auburn
@ KY

@King Jericho: Agreed; I'd love to head out there for a ballgame; this is all assuming, though, that OU still hsa a program and that it won't be played at the local, erm, correctional institute.

I can't imagine the press box meals at prison games are all that good. I did like The Longest Yard though.

Did we drop the Clemson series?

Anon 9:58,

The 2012 SEC Schedule is an estimate by SicemDawgs. It hasn't been replaced. There are a variety of possibilities including:

Bama and Ole Miss swap weeks.
Bama or Ole Miss plays UGA the week before Florida.
Florida moves to the week of 11/3 and Bama or Ole Miss play before then.

It's still wide open because the SEC hasn't released the date.

I'm tired of arguing that we have a tough schedule. Let's follow Fl's and Al's lead and schedule teams like Ga St. and the Citadel. Screw it. We were already getting burned on our Preseason ranking b/c they said our sched was too tough. That's a double whammy. Enough with the pride and let's play the game as dealt.

Hmm, I was under the impression that we were headed east yonder, 'cross Lake Hartwell come 2013 to play the Rockpetters. It'd be a shame if that didn't happen. I miss those guys.

I think the Clemson home and home is still on. Any cancellation of that would have been big news. Perhaps final details not worked out yet.

jm from louisville said...

it looks as if the North Texas game HAS replaced the Clemson game in 2013.

North Texas will be our first game of the season that year on August 31st.

Honestly, its probably a good thing. I'd rather have a win to start the year than a possible loss to an 'extra' non-conference foe.

We gain nothing by playing Clemson... absolutely nothing. (Its the exact same as this past year - nothing was to be gained by playing Oklahoma St to begin the year while already having 2 other nc bcs foes)

If we win all our games, we'll be at the top as it is.

While what you say is true, jm, I would still very much enjoy watching the Dawgs and Tigers play. After all, there is some history between us and, hell, wouldn't it be funny to hear the Cocks root for us?
