I’ve said that the Georgia Dome offers very little to Georgia even when it comes to the Georgia-Florida game. But Mark Richt has come up with the only scenario I’d go for to bring a regular season Georgia game to the Dome: if the opponent is willing to sacrifice a home game.
“We have a neutral site game (against Florida) already, so every other year we’re losing a home game,” Richt said. “If you have another neutral site situation, you’re losing another home game, and I don’t think we should trade a home game for a game in the Dome. But if they want to trade a home game to play in Atlanta, that would be great for us.”
That sounds like exactly the right approach. And it’s not without precedent – even for conference games.
