Ohio State, Georgia Cancel Football Series ... In 2020-21

The Ohio St. Buckeyes and Georgia Bulldogs have only met once on the football field, a 21-14 victory for the latter in the 1993 Citrus Bowl. In December 2010, both schools signed on for a home-and-home series ... for the 2020-21 football season. That's right, the schools agreed to meet each other on the football field ten years in the future.

Now, eight years in advance of the games, both sides have decided that there's not going to be any way for them to play the games, according to FBSchedules.com. According to the site, the schools were unable to come up with dates for the future games and have cancelled them, possibly due to the long-term schedule agreement between the Big Ten and the Pac-12.

It makes sense to not have a focus on games with schools like Georgia when they don't know who their Pac-12 opponents will be. Still, at face value, the implication that eight years is not nearly long enough to figure out two dates is definite hilarity you can only find in NCAA scheduling. Wonder what Urban Meyer has to say about this?
