If you had any doubts about the importance of college football in the south and more specifically, the SEC, then let me present to you this Georgia lawyer who filed an emergency motion to move his trial date so he and his brother could go to the Rose Bowl and watch the Dawgs play.
This is college football fans at their best. The judge immediately granting it without even thinking about it makes it that much better.
I imagine this is exactly how the early lawmakers and Founding Fathers of the Constitution intended situations like this to be handled. There’s a big football game coming up? The law can wait. Georgia plays today.
No, this isn’t the first time something like this has happened in the SEC…from 2012
It just means more.
