Damon Evans says that UGA and Tech are in very preliminary discussions with the Georgia Dome to open the 2011 season.
- Tech would essentially be giving up a home game as the Dawgs would have dramatically more fans at the game.
- The pay day would be nice for the athletic department.
- We would have all off season to get ready for the triple option.
- Tech's greatest systemic program weakness is depth. One of the advantages we have in the series is the timing. By playing them late in the season, they are historically thinner on the lines of scrimmage and at other key positions. They beat Auburn twice and Notre Dame once in the season openers a few years ago.
And honestly...the Tech fan base is never going to go for this. The idea of giving UGA an additional 15-20k tickets for their "home" game just isn't going to happen.
