Georgia and Boise State to open 2011?

Posted by Jerry Hinnen

Nothing's officially official just yet, but the tea leaves are all but screaming that Georgia will face off against Boise State in the annual Chick-Fil-A Kickoff game. Asked point-blank about the possibility yesterday, both Mark Richt and Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity offered leading no comments , and the AD for current opening-week Boise opponents Ole Miss cryptically tweeted that ESPN was delaying a "big football schedule announcement."

All of that would be enough to call the blockbuster all but a done deal, but this morning we also got the following from Georgia legend and current Atlanta radio personality Buck Belue :

As Belue's tweet indicates, between the loss of much of Boise's roster and the Dawgs' slide to their current 5-6 record, the meeting won't quite be the mega-matchup it would have been this year. But any collision between Boise and the SEC -- not to mention the South's legion of avowed Bronco skeptics -- is still must-see television.

The Bulldogs will point out that the last time Boise came east to face the Dawgs, the Broncos were run out of Athens behind a bevy of Jared Zabransky turnovers by a score of 48-13. But 2005 was a long time ago, and with a carrot like this to tempt us throughout the offseason, the minute the 2010 season is done, 2011 won't get here fast enough.
