Post Richt has the right idea for the Dome

Wednesday May 27, 2009

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.
