They polled the fan base about Mark Richt’s future. The good news is that a clear majority still support Georgia’s embattled head coach.
The bad news, of course, is that anyone felt the need to conduct such a poll in the first place.
But that’s just a blip compared to what came out of yesterday’s quarterly meeting of the UGA athletic association board.
… School president Michael Adams, presiding over the meeting, asked if anyone else had any thoughts.
Tommy Lowhorne, a board member from Columbus, spoke up and looked at athletics 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,” Lowhorne 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.
I’m surprised that exchange was offered for public consumption. I’m sure no one will bring it up on the recruiting trail.
The question left hanging is whether it was orchestrated by Adams, UGA’s supreme weasel. If so, all Richt is waiting on is the dreaded vote of confidence.
It probably wouldn’t hurt to win today.
