Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post UGA-Kentucky set for noon at Tech

Saturday March 15, 2008

Chuck Dowdle on WSB-TV, quoting Dennis Felton, reports that the SEC Tournament will move to Georgia Tech’s Alexander Memorial Coliseum for the duration of the tournament. The AJC confirms. The Georgia-Kentucky quarterfinal will take place at noon on Saturday. Television coverage continues as usual.

There is no word yet on the semifinals, though we expect them to be played later on Saturday. Either Georgia or Kentucky is going to be at a big disadvantage in the semis.

Corey Butler has the right attitude:

“There’s a chance we could be playing two games in one day, which is kind of like the AAU circuit,” Georgia guard Corey Butler said.

“We could definitely pull it out, and we’d definitely be willing to play if it keeps us in the tournament.”

No word yet on ticket allocation, but this is going to be a huge mess. Check the news and get there early if you want to try to attend. Alexander Memorial seats almost 9,200 – almost a third of the Georgia Dome’s basketball configuration. There are probably 9,200 Kentucky fans per square mile in Atlanta this weekend.

I’m off to bed…I’m afraid that the view at sunrise isn’t going to be pleasant.
