Here, for what they are worth, are three points for you to ponder on your lunch hour this Tuesday:
- On Sunday, four American amateur golfers were selected to represent the United States on the Walker Cup team. Half of them were from the University of Georgia, as Harris English and Russell Henley will hit the links for the honor of their country at Scotland’s Royal Aberdeen Golf Club in September. It’s hard to overstate how well Red and Black golfers are serving as ambassadors for the University these days.
- Uga may be dead, but he’s still the best mascot in college football, and not by a narrow margin. That’s not news to us, of course, but it’s nice to see credit given where credit is due.
- Evidently, Greg McGarity privately pushed Mark Richt to take a heavier hand in addressing player behavioral issues. In that respect, McGarity clearly drew a stark line of demarcation between himself and his former boss, Jeremy Foley, who, to put it mildly, didn’t seem overly distressed regarding Urban Meyer’s laxity concerning Gator disciplinary matters. McGarity clearly is no mere carbon copy of Foley, which the portion of the Georgia fan base urging regime change in the football program would do well to recall before supposing that the athletic director in Athens will adopt the hardline fire-’em-and-fire-’em-now stance adopted by the athletic director in Gainesville.
Do with that what you will.
