Dogs are 3-14 vs. Gators this school year

Georgia lost three baseball games to Florida over the weekend, which got me to wondering: What is the Bulldogs’ record against the Gators in all sports in head-to-head competition this school year?

It’s not good, as you know. It’s awful, as a matter of fact. It’s 3-14, to be precise.

Here’s Georgia’s record by sport against the Gators in 2009-10 (includes only dual competitions):

  • Football: 0-1
  • Men’s basketball: 1-1
  • Women’s basketball: 1-1
  • Baseball: 0-3
  • Gymnastics: 0-1
  • Soccer: 0-1
  • Women’s swimming and diving: 1-0
  • Men’s swimming and diving: 0-1
  • Men’s tennis: 0-2
  • Women’s tennis: 0-1
  • Volleyball: 0-2.
  • Total: 3-14

(Note: The two scheduled Georgia-Florida softball games were rained out.)

In multi-team competitions (not included above), there were at least a couple of notable occasions when Georgia finished ahead of Florida this school year: Georgia won the SEC men’s golf tournament, where Florida tied for second place, and the SEC women’s swimming and diving meet, where Florida finished second. On the other hand, Florida won the SEC gymnastics meet, where Georgia finished third, and the SEC men’s track and field meet, where Georgia finished fifth.

Georgia gets another shot at the Gators this week. In the NCAA Tennis Championships in Athens, Georgia’s men’s team (the No. 11 seed) will play Florida (the No. 6 seed) in the round of 16 at 6 p.m. Friday. The Dogs and Gators have met twice previously this season in men’s tennis, with Florida winning both times — in the ITA National Team Indoor Championships in February and then in an SEC regular-season match in Gainesville.

And if you’re looking for something more upbeat: Watch Aaron Murray’s tape, Mark Richt advises uneasy fans.

The main one is football. That one’s worth 10 other wins. Let’s take care of that one this fall.

Florida also regularly finishes ahead of UGA in Academic Rankings and Party School Rankings.

One thing UGA beats UF in though is # of arrest of football players. UGA has a 10 arrest lead in that category in the last 5 years.

At least UGA has their pathetic attempt at Fashion smack talk with the whole “Jean Shorts” cry even though you can walk into any Wal-Mart in Georgia right now and see 20 people wearing Jean SHorts and UGA hats. And also that pathetic “overall series” lead smack even though you have to go back to the 1930’s to see start the overall lead in the series. Congrats to your great great gandpa’s for that and actually being the only ones who have a series lead in their lifetime.

jsmithc, i don’t think your sarcasm is warranted. Why do you have to knock Tim for this one? You know, counting may not be a big achievement for you, but it is to Tim. You don’t have to ruin this one for him man. Let him bask in the glory of his academic achievement.

Why compare UGA vs UF? That is too high a standard for the leghumpers. What is the record against Mississippi State – that is probably a more realistic benchmark.

UF has a great athletic program, no doubt. However, UGA in my opinion is a grossly underachieving program. In the “Big 3″ sports, we have: 1.) a football program that, in a state that puts more players on SEC rosters than even the more populous FLA, still can’t get over the hump to win a nat’l championship. 2.) do we even need to go into the futility in men’s basketball?, 3.) apparently UGA is fielding 4th or 5th best baseball program in the state. whipped by Tech and KSU, the Dawgs scratched out a win over Ga State a week or two ago. Thank goodness we don’t play Ga Southern this year to solidify our position. I understand Perno got burned by recruits going pro, but how is it that programs like Texas, LSU, etc. can navigate the college recruiting scene without fielding such a pathetic team?

I’m a UGA grad, love my Dawgs athletics. However, the bottom line is, UGA doesn’t demand excellence like Jeremy Foley and UF. We get fat and giddy b/c we win equestrian championships, have been successful in women’s swimming the past 10+ years, and do well in most spring sports. I’m proud of these things, but until UGA uses the resources at its disposal, ie. the hugely profitable athletic department, the in-state talent, etc., and can compete YEARLY with UF in the SEC director’s cup race, then Damon Evans or whoever else is leading the charge is failing. If you’re 3-14 vs UF at Mississippi State, Vandy, Ole Miss, South Carolina, Kentucky, Auburn, etc., then it’s more understandable. UGA has too much going for it, and this 3-14 spells FAILURE. Back to Foley and UF: I hear people that scoff at the idea that Perno should be on the hot-seat b/c of this embarrassing baseball team b/c he’s won a few SECC’s and been to 3 CWS, even came within 20 or so outs in ‘08 of winning a nat’l championship. Well, UF had a coach lead them to the SECC and take them to the CWS championship series, which they lost to Texas. The next year they dropped off…..not even in the same ballpark of ugliness the ‘10 Diamond Dawgs are mind you, but they fell off. Foley made a change, b/c there’s simply no excuse for such failure at UF with their $$$$ and recruiting base. I’m not saying fire Perno this year, but if UGA fails to be one of the top 8 teams in the SEC next year and fails to make its own conference tournament, he needs to go.

I hate to be so negative, but I guess too many UGA alumni and supporters make excuses for failure. I don’t like it, but all in all, we get what we deserve, and UF gets what it deserves.

Hey new you lead in player arrests and number of teams who really despise you. That’d be the other 116 D-1 schools. I know Ohio St. fans who’d root for Michigan over you stinky smelly water lizards.

These things move in cycles. Twenty years ago, Florida
was right up there with Vanderbilt with ZERO SEC titles
in football – historically speaking, they’re a Johnny-
come-lately. You have to respect what they’ve done
since then, but than doesn’t mean it will continue
indefinitely. Pride cometh before the fall.

Hey Tim,

Please tell me the point of this article. Did you do the same comparison last year, or previous years? Is this supposed to be indicative of something? Are you saying that UGA athletics are inferior to UF’s? I am sure you are aware of the athlete turnover that occurs each year in the various college athletic programs due to graduation etc. Come on do you not have anything more prescient to write about. Please spare us the obvious attempt at rousing the ire of the fan base. Truth is, that UGA is just as competitive as UF or any major college athletic program in any sport. Some years are better than others. Will look forward to this groundbreaking article for years to come. YAWN :o )

Will Dawg,

You’re wrong on the player arrest. UF has had 26 arrest since Meyer has been at UF and UGA has had 36. Can’t argue with assumption against fact.

Nolabigdawg,

You’re also wrong about UGA being on par with UF as an Athletc Program. The Gators are about to win their 19th SEC All-Sports title in the last 23 years. UF is also the ONLY program in the country who has finished in the top 10 of the National All-Sports rankings EVERY year since they started 26 years ago.

Yeah, it’s just a reflection of the current state of athletics in Athens. What’s Georgia’s all time record against Florida? I’m willing to bet UGA has an all time 60%+ record versus UF.

And alas, the pre-’90 arguments. I used those as a student at UGA in the the mid-late 90s, and sadly enough, the relief I thought was just around the corner in football futility in Jax have not come to fruition. It is 2010 folks. I enjoyed whipping UF when I was in middle school. It was great. I cringe when I hear these. I love Mark Richt, but his record against UF is ugly. Demand more! Richt’s a nice guy, but nice guys don’t finish first in the SEC and in the country if they keep incompetent defensive coordinators around too long. Again, we got what we had coming to us, we got what we deserved for such a blunder.

As a dog fan, I’m a little dissappointed and embarrassed……Hey people, facts are facts and yes we all want to perform better against da lizards…..I just think the real problem is that we’re not getting the best of the best athletes at this time……we’re not far behind Fla in recruiting but lets face it…..if an athlete does’nt have ties to UGA then why would’nt he choose to go to Fla?…..great weather year round, pretty campus, hot chicks, and a recent track record of excellence on the field……I do’nt think we’re that far off, but just enough for it to make a difference………I hope things change…….GO DAWGS!

AJC- on par with the national Enquirer…..and we wonder why cities like NY, Chicago, Los Angeles laugh at Atlanta. As much as everyone wants to beleive that Atlanta is on par with those great cities- we need only look at the AJC and Marta to see how backwards we really are.
