Georgia cancels game with Oregon

It would have been a great game -- and a great road trip for both sets of fans -- but Georgia and Oregon won't play in 2015 and 2016 after the game contract was canceled.

The official word is it was "mutually" agreed upon.

Hmm. There is this from the Athens Banner-Herald.

The cancellation is a move away from Georgia’s philosophy under former athletic director Damon Evans of scheduling high-profile nonconference games in other regions of the country.

Oregon is not undergoing any such policy change, by the way. See a recent contract with LSU in 2011 for a game in Cowboys Stadium.

And then there's this quote from the new Georgia AD.

“We think we’re going a long way this week, try Eugene, Ore.,” [Greg] McGarity said. “That’s even further. It’s not a lot of fun when you see the itinerary when you get back into Athens at 6 a.m. on Sunday morning like will be the situation this Sunday.”

Anyone out there think a certain once-frequent participant in the Pac-10 blog's comment section played a role in this? Or did ducktails777 just run him off?
