Okay, Kirby … we get it — you don’t like playing the Florida Gators in Jacksonville.

University of Georgia football coach Kirby Smart won’t give up on his thinly-disguised hints that he’d like to move the Florida-Georgia game in Jacksonville to home-and-home, or a rotation between Jacksonville and Atlanta.

Smart harped once again on a tradition that will be played at TIAA Bank Field for the 87th year since 1933, a streak interrupted only three times, in 1943 by World War II and in 1994 and 1995 when the game went to the respective campuses because of the stadium renovation for the Jaguars.
