(Photo by Scott Halleran/Getty Images)The Georgia vs. Florida football rivalry is one of the best – and most evenly match – in the country. According to Paul Finebaum, it’s also the “hottest” in the SEC right now.Finebaum sat down for an interview with DawgNation this week and stated that he believes the current rivalry between the Bulldogs and the Gators is the best in the league. He thinks that Florida believes it’s close to Georgia, while Bulldogs fans think they’re crazy.Here’s the quote, via Mike Griffith:“I believe right now, based on what I’ve heard, based one what I do every day listening to callers, I believe it’s the hottest rivalry in the SEC right now,” Finebaum told DawgNation in an exclusive interview at the SEC Spring Meetings last week.“I think there’s a sense at Florida that they are gaining and literally breathing down Georgia’s neck, that’s been promoted by Dan Mullen, and I’ve heard it,” he said. “Georgia fans are like, ‘are you kidding me?’The past two years have seen blowout victories for Georgia. The Bulldogs took care of business 42-7 in 2017 and 36-17 in 2018. Overall, the Bulldogs lead the series as well – either 51-43-2 or 52-43-2, depending upon which side you ask. In theory, the Bulldogs should be favored again in 2019. The program came a few plays away from qualifying for the College Football Playoff a year ago in a close loss to Alabama. They’ve also been recruiting at a high level.Regardless, this year’s game should have some extra juice. We can’t wait for it.last_img read more
