Georgia Bulldogs' Athletic Director Scores a 9.9 in Women's Gymnastics But Is Charged With an Error in Baseball

Mark Richt's annual base salary is not being increased, but the head football coach will receive more in performance bonuses. . . . McGarity pointed out that Richt's salary of $2.9 million put him in the upper ecehlon of SEC coaches, but not among the highest-paid. But the performance bonuses for winning the SEC, BCS and other things are being increased. "We want to reward excellence," McGarity said. . . . The board was set to vote on an upgrade to Foley Field that will cost $1.35 million. The improvements include basically everything: The press box, the main entrance, ticket booth, dugouts, locker rooms and lounge, training room and batting cages, and other aspects of the field. In addition, the current outfield trees will be replaced due to age. . . . Out of concern over a lack of student turnout at football games, a series of changes will be implemented. Chief among them is tickets will be based first on attendance, then on seniority, while an appeals system will be created for students who have "a legitimate, unexpected reason for missing a game, such as a family emergency."

I like the sound of all of that. Go 'Dawgs!

The Board also will be asked to approve improvements to Foley Field. "We’re not going to build a brand new facility," McGarity said. "We don’t have that necessity at this point. A few upgrades will be discussed tomorrow." There has been talk in past board meetings about making some code corrections to the press box and improvements to the right field area known as Kudzu Hill. The current baseball stadium was built in 1990 around the existing field. As UGA outlined in its master plan three years ago: "The stadium has become outdated over the years. The updates to the stadium have not responded to new facilities at rival institutions, therefore if is no longer near the top of the list of both national and conference baseball facilities. The press box is undersized and the stadium needs to be brought up to current codes."

The nickeling and diming of the University's oldest varsity sport continues. Go 'Dawgs!
