Georgia State football slaughter coming two days earlier than expected

Posted By on Thu, Jul 1, 2010 at 1:32 PM

According to a press release from the Georgia State Sports Communications office, Georgia State's final game of their inaugural football season against the defending National Champion Alabama Crimson Tide has been moved to Thursday, Nov. 18., thus expediting the certain carnage that annually occurs between really good football teams and really bad ones.

"This whole Alabama opportunity has been a huge boost for our program from the very beginning,” head football coach Bill Curry told the GSU Athletic Department Thursday. “We are fortunate to be able to play a game in Tuscaloosa, and we believe that moving from Saturday to Thursday can give it added appeal for our players and our fans because Thursday night games have become so special in college football."

There's little, if any, doubt that Georgia State would play the game against Alabama on top of an erupting volcano if they were asked to do so as the seven-figure paycheck national exposure that accompanies the matchup is too enticing to jeopardize with a scheduling conflict.
