Ga. Tech vs. UGA in 2011 Kickoff Game? Stupid idea

The alleged newspaper the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported yesterday of the possibility of the annual rivalry game between UGA and the Georgia Tech being played at the start of the 2011 season as that year's Chick-Fil-A Kickoff Game. It's possibly one of the dumber ideas I've heard.
As much as I'd like to see Either UGA or the North Avenue Trade School in the Kickoff Came, I would prefer them facing different opponents. The cool part of the CFA Kickoff Game is that fans get to see match-ups that might not have happened otherwise. Tech and Georgia play each other every year, what's so special about that? Seeing Georgia or Tech play an opponent outside their conferences would be a whole lot more exciting,especially when UGA gets a lot of flak for not doing so (though that has changed a lot since Damon Evans has come aboard as UGA's AD).
UGA and Tech in the CFA Kickoff Game? Cool. Playing each other? Not so much.
