The Peach State’s most popular sports team resides not in Atlanta, but an hour east in Athens, and UGA football fans are hungry to know if the upcoming college season will take place as scheduled. The news is tentatively good, as UGA president Jere Morehead over the weekend told a local radio show that he is “operating under the hope and expectation that we will have a full football season, under relatively normal conditions.” Will “relatively normal” include limits on fan attendance? Quite possibly. But any football at all would be a huge boon for the state as it not only impacts the schools – which make millions off lucrative TV deals – but also the local economies from Athens to Statesboro and everywhere in between, local economies which will desperately need a pick-me-up later this Summer.
