Georgia has talked about playing a regular-season game at the Georgia Dome in 2010, but Richt downplayed the chances of a deal being struck.
“It’s really more of a pipedream than anything anybody should get excited about,” Richt said after he spoke to the crowd at the St. Mary on The Hill gymnasium.
… but there’s something else about this that makes me curious. The AB-H reports that the subject was addressed by Richt after a question from an audience member about what Georgia could do in response to Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban scheduling games in Atlanta.
Is Richt really so concerned about Saban that he’d drop a home game as a defensive measure to blunt the impact of ‘Bama playing in the Dome? The article doesn’t make that clear, but if that’s the reasoning behind trying to schedule such a game, well, that’s just wrong.
