“I’m trying to get that game back again,” Georgia Southern athletics director Tom Kleinlein said on Thursday. “We sat down and talked about it a couple months later and thought it was a great experience. Obviously we bring a bunch of our fans there, and a lot of their fans and our fans are closely-tied fan bases. And with the whole deal with Erk (Russell) coming from here it’s a great, great game. We’d like to play again in the future. But I’ve not gotten a response to being able to play that game.”
Georgia athletics director Greg McGarity did not immediately respond to requests for comment, via text and e-mail.
The last discussions with Georgia were earlier this spring, according to Kleinlein, and those came via e-mail.
“They have said that they’re kind of in the process of some other things right now,” Kleinlein said.
Like scheduling Austin Peay.
