Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post Legion Field East

Wednesday May 14, 2008

Our friends at the Atlanta Sports Council are at it again. They’ve already arranged for one Alabama game to be played in Atlanta against Clemson in 2008, and they’re currently working with Duke to move their 2010 home game with the Crimson Tide to the Georgia Dome. Outgoing Duke AD Joe Alleva is hopeful that the deal will get done, and new Duke coach David Cutcliffe is no newcomer to recruiting in Georgia.

The Sports Council is just doing its job by bringing a college game to the city, but it will be Alabama’s second regular season trip to Atlanta in three seasons. Hopefully they’ll get lots of experience for the Chick-fil-A Bowl instead of the SEC Championship.

  • I certainly don’t like the idea of coaches like Saban, Bowden, and Cutcliffe having a high visibility inroad into our recruiting territory.However, my confidence in our staffs recruiting prowess is at an all time high.Some of these schools may or may not land the occasional recruit as a result of these games.What I think will likely happen is, once these games are over,our staff will remark their territory.

  • Personally, I’m counting on Duke to beat Alabama in 2010. That should be entertaining.
