Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post In which Paul Johnson and I see eye-to-eye

Wednesday June 10, 2009

You won’t find Paul Johnson and I agreeing on much, but both of us understand that the Atlanta Sports Council bringing in SEC and ACC rivals to the Georgia Dome for the Kickoff Classic isn’t doing the local programs any favors.

“Helps the teams that are playing in it, no question,” Johnson said. “Doesn’t do anything for us or Georgia. When you bring in teams in your own conference to showcase them every year in a kickoff game, it’s got to help them recruit the area.”

The quick reaction is to point out that Georgia or Georgia Tech could just as well participate, but doing so would still be less optimal than simply hosting a quality home game at which either program could actually host area prospects.
