Athletic Association Board Members "really concerned"


A frequent point brought up in any "hotseat" or "FIRE RICHT NOW!!!!" discussion is the fact that as long as people are making Hartman Fund contributions and the big money boosters are happy, the rantings of Bulldog Joe over the intertubes are much sound and fury, signifying nothing.

Well, from Emerson:


The quarterly meeting of the UGA athletic association board was ending on Friday afternoon. School president Michael Adams, presiding over the meeting, asked if anyone else had any thoughts. Tommy Lawhorne, a board member from Columbus, spoke up, and looked at athletic director Greg McGarity, who was sitting next to Adams. "There are many of us who are really concerned about the status of the football program," Lawhorne said. "Yet we have confidence in Greg McGarity to get us to where we want to be." Board member Bob Bishop then chimed in. "I’ll echo that," he said. McGarity responded with a polite smile and slight nod.

Perhaps after last Saturday Mr. Bishop's lap feels a little overloaded :
"He’s not in my hot seat; he’s still in my lap," Bob Bishop, an executive board member for 29 years, said with a laugh. "I love him. I don’t think you can find a better human being anywhere and he’s a fine football coach. He’s proven that time and time again. But we all know it goes in cycles. He had a bad cycle last year and he made a lot of changes to improve on that. If you have a real bad season again there’s going to be a lot of turmoil all over the state and on campus and behind the scenes."
That may be the sound of the first shoe dropping...
