Bulldogs coach Mark Fox: Bring Gators to Athens every year

Georgia’s SEC schedule will include three permanent opponents beginning in the 2015-2016 season and Georgia men’s basketball coach Mark Fox said Monday he would like Florida to be one of them.

“I think last year was the first time that Georgia hadn’t played Florida at home in 60 years or something,” said Fox, whose Bulldogs fell to Florida in January. “There’s obviously a lot of history in our conference and that’s going to change as our conference grows.”

Georgia did not host Florida, Kentucky or Tennessee last season.

“Those are the games that our fans will traditionally come out and see,” Fox said. “To not have any of those games at home, that’s an issue that all teams run into. Maybe with more partners that you play every year you can avoid some of that.”
