Georgia Wants No Part of Urban Meyer

Ohio State and Georgia scheduled a home-and-home series to begin in 2020, but OSU asked out of that agreement in 2012, due to the Big Ten's then-scheduling agreement with the Pac-12. (You see, the playoffs were still the boogeyman of the sport in 2012, and OSU had concerns about playing UGA and a tough Pac-12 opponent in the same year.)

But fast forward to 2015, and Georgia is again on the hunt for contests against "memorable" competition in "iconic stadiums."

Georgia's athletic director, Greg McGarity, has even went as far as to solicit staff, friends, and students for ideas, according to Seth Emerson of

One team, however, won't make the chopping block, and it's for a very specific reason.

"Once Urban came in that was off the table," McGarity said.

So there you have it, straight from the horse's mouth: Georgia's athletic director is terrified of what Urban Meyer would do to his football team. (Urban was 5-1 vs. Georgia during his time at Florida.)

And given the fact Urban Meyer and OSU rolled up the SEC kingpin like a discounted Wal-Mart area rug, McGarity probably knows what he's talking about.
