No, not the Georgia-Florida game. A home game.
Georgia is involved in talks that could result in another high-profile non-conference game, possibly at the Georgia Dome or the Atlanta Falcons’ new stadium.
Color me puzzled. It’s not as if Georgia doesn’t boast a perfectly lovely facility of its own in the neighborhood, as Groo has noted before.
And it’s going to mean giving up one of those precious home games that Richt and McGarity were thought ready to defend to the death. Um, what’s that you say, Greg?
McGarity indicated it would come at the expense of a Georgia home game, which would impact business in Athens. But another big-time concert could help offset that, McGarity said, pointing to the Jason Aldean concert in 2013.
If that’s all it takes to make things right with the world, I’d gladly trade a concert at Sanford Stadium every other year for a nine-game conference schedule. I bet most of the fan base would happily make that deal, too. Think it through and get back to us, guys.
