The Georgia Bulldogs football team has declined an invitation to visit the White House and celebrate their College Football Playoff National Championship title with President Joe Biden due to scheduling conflicts. The team received the invitation on May 3, but the proposed date of June 12 was not feasible for the team due to the student-athlete calendar and time of year. The Bulldogs appreciate the invitation and look forward to other opportunities in the future.
This is not the first time the Bulldogs have missed a White House visit. They did not visit after their 2022 national title due to COVID-19 restrictions. However, this time around, the main reason for their absence is that many students on the team will not be on campus on the proposed date, as they will return in June for summer workouts.
I totally get it if this is just a scheduling conflict, but if it has anything to do with politics, Georgia is LAME. I’m in the mindset that if you have any chance to go to the White House, I think you should go. It’s also suspect that they didn’t go last year either due to “COVID restrictions”. Football players visiting the White House is always a great visual and amazing content always comes when they attend. Everyone should be required to visit the White House strictly for content purposes. If Joe Biden wants to invite me, I will be available on June 12th. Just let me know Joe.
