"I think it's good for them. I'm not mad at them. I think they're smart. I think there's an advantage to it," Richt said of the Thursday games. "I would love to have a Thursday game before them."
That's not likely to happen. Georgia has historically avoided playing the midweek contests, and Richt said that is unlikely to change.
The practical implications of playing a game in front of 90,000 fans at Sanford Stadium during the week are the biggest stumbling blocks, Richt said, but a road game to open the season – against Oklahoma State next year, for instance – seems tempting.
"There's no way you could do a home game, but it wouldn't hurt my feelings if we opened the season with an Oklahoma State game at their place on a Thursday," Richt said. "It wouldn't hurt my feelings. It's not going to happen though."
