On the other hand, Georgia will play Mississippi Valley State on Nov. 12th to open the season. This is the Friday Night before the Auburn road game. MVSU had an RPI of roughly eleventy billion (ok...325th out of 347th). They play an up tempo style, but they stink.
As a point of reference our buddy ScenicCityDawg pointed out that former Dawg Drazen Zlovaric rained down 16 points of awesomeness on these guys two years ago in Athens as part of a 41 point victory. Uhh....that was 35% of his total points over his two year UGA career.
It's not an ideal RPI match-up, but it's Game 1, and everyone plays a few of these bottom feeders.
Tentative Basketball Schedule:
Mississippi Valley State
Plus 3-5 more teams
Notre Dame (confirmed)
Plus 2 more in Orlando
