Georgia State is just haggling over the fee.

Bill Curry plays coy with Alabama.

Bill Curry’s phone works. I know because we spoke, cell to cell, while he was driving Thursday afternoon.

So rule out technical difficulties as a reason that Alabama hasn’t contacted the familiar coach of the new Georgia State football program about moving their game from its scheduled date of Saturday, Nov. 20, to Thursday, Nov. 18.

A week after Nick Saban mentioned the possibility on an SEC teleconference, Curry said, “We have not heard from them.”

But having heard of Saban’s remarks, Curry and the Georgia State AD discussed the idea last Friday. Interestingly, their answer to any Alabama request to jump might not be “How high?”

They determined that, if Alabama asks, they’ll have to broach the subject with their university president and others “to find out what flexibility we may or may not have,” Curry said.

As for Georgia State’s general philosophy of playing on Thursday nights, he added, “We don’t have a basic approach yet. We literally do not have an answer.”

Any bets the answer has a price tag?

    Saban will learn, as the Bear did before him, that you can never trust a Tech man.

    I hope he soaks them for as much as he can. AntiSaban over antiCurry anyday. If you are going to whore your program at least be high-priced. It doesn’t hurt your players any more and it just feels better.

    What’s the going price for a virgin nowadays anyway?

    Tac on an extra mil for the name of Georgia and State. What’s it worth to go through history with “Sabanized” synonymous with your score?

    My question is does Saban really think that playing Ga State is not like having a bye week before the AU game? It should be a like a glorified scrimmage and Saban can even throw out a few wrinkles to give AU something to have to prepare for. He is going to use that whole week of practice to prepare for AU no matter what anyways.
