Georgia would be prime target for field storm, will revised SEC policies protect Bulldogs?

MIRAMAR BEACH, Fla. — Georgia has not lost a regular-season game since 2020, so the SEC’s latest field storming legislation might not be at the top of the Bulldogs’ minds.

But it should be, because if UGA were to lose an SEC road game this season, its coaches and players would be prime targets for a potentially dangerous field rush of opposing fans from Auburn or Tennessee.

The league announced the following penalties for field or court storming on Thursday, with the fine money going to the opponent:

• $100,000 for first offense

• $250,000 for second offense

• $500,000 for third offense

Time will tell if those fines are strong enough to prevent field stormings, but at least one SEC administrator at the SEC Spring Meetings was on record as saying fines don’t work, and that’s concerning.
