Good thing, too, because after Saturday’s game in Miami, the in-state rivals might not play each other for a while — at least not in the regular season.
Florida athletic director Jeremy Foley says “never say never, but it’s really, really difficult.”
Foley points to the potential of the Southeastern Conference moving to a nine-game schedule as well as lost revenue from a home-and-home series.
He says “people don’t want to hear this, but when you take a home game out of here, it cost you significant dollars. … You can’t do that every other year and try to run a sports program at the level we’re trying to run it.”
