Please be true. This would be awesome.
Rumor Mill: Michigan to play Georgia in 2010 home opener?
By ryan kartje, written on Jul. 1, 2009
Michigan may have found its suitor for the 2010 opening game. And it sure would beat the pants out of another matchup with a Delaware State-caliber team.
Some sources tell me that the Athletic Department is looking into a home game against the University of Georgia in 2010, one that would also bring the Wolverines to Athens in 2011.
Adam Rittenberg from ESPN, along with Brian Cook from MGoBlog both thought the Wolverines should look into a series with Boise State, but a matchup with a marquee SEC opponent could be exactly what it takes to sell out the newfound 2010 luxury boxes faster than a Denard Robinson 100-m time.
Of course, this news is just a rumor for now, and is far from being seriously considered. So approach with caution. But if the Wolverines do welcome Mark Richt’s Bulldogs, we’ll have something to talk about.
Georgia graduated the NFL’s No. 1 pick in Matthew Stafford, along with speedy running back Knowshon Moreno after finishing with a 10-3 record last season.
