"We need a new stadium..."



If these words were to be mentioned with Sanford Stadium, the Bulldawg Nation would, in unison, scream NO and bring the discussions to a halt. Sure it's had some renovations but since 1929 it's served as the home of the Georgia Bulldawgs. A major renovation, that would put the total capacity atop the SEC, if not the nation, has even been turned down - this being of course being the closing in of Sanford Bridge.

Same state. Similar colors. Similar regular season success. Similar semi-final results but not the same way of thinking to the stadium.

In contrast with UGA, the city of Atlanta and Arthur Blank want a new stadium, in spite of only being open since 1992. (Yes the similar opening year is not lost on me: 1929 vs 1992 - just interpose the last two digits) Dylan DeSimone shows that the new stadium is no longer just talk but is close to reality.

Frank Tarkenton makes an argument "[that he has] played in many stadiums, but to me there are only two special stadiums - Yankee Stadium in New York and Sanford Stadium in Athens, and there is no comparison between the two. There is no place in the world precisely like the grass that grows between the hedges in Athens, Georgia"

What do you think the reason UGA is content their stadium while the Falcons want an updated stadium? Super Bowl coming to Atlanta and money are the main reasons but I believe it speaks to something larger - Chuckdawg goes deeper.
