Future Schedule Update for FB & Hoops

There is more information coming down the pipe about some of UGA's future opponents in football AND basketball...

First, it appears that we are finally rounding out our upcoming basketball schedule with two more non-conference opponents announced. The first one is our opponent for the home portion of the CBE Classic, which will be played in Athens AND Kansas City. I'll spare you the details but we will play two opponents at home, then will play a "Finals" in Kansas City. ANWAY, one of the home opponents recently rumored is South Dakota State...the Jackrabbits. Great nickname and I am putting the over/under on number of black players at 2.5. We will play them on November 16 and the other opponent is yet to be announced.

We have also scheduled a random non-conference home game against Delaware State on December 30. Just to give you some brief background on these two teams, SDSU plays in the Summit League and went a respectable 19-12 last season. Delaware State plays in the MEAC and went a measly 9-21. We already play a slew of tough non-conference games so going a little softer was in order for Coach Fox and Co.

Also, we have a new 2015 football opponent...the UL-Monroe Warhawks. We are 3-0 lifetime against ULM (but I'm pretty sure they were called something else until about eight years ago) which included a 44-7 romping in 2005. It's also allegedly the most ($1.2 million) that we have paid a non-conference opponent to travel to Athens. As the article above states, we have also already paid Southern University $650,000 to play us in 2015, so we are really forking out the dough for some W's.

We'll keep you updated when we hear any more about our final CBE Hoops opponent.
