College football programs are not allowed to place website addresses or social media messages on the field due to rules that were recently amended by the NCAA. Tell us what you think of the athletic association’s decision.
#GoDawgs or #GoJackets? Whichever your preference, you won’t see either on an NCAA football field this fall.

"If series history has proven anything, it's that Tennessee -- even when a decided underdog -- has a habit of delivering unsettling losses to unfocused Georgia teams," Ching writes.
