I would have expected to read something like this on April 1st, because it sounds like a practical joke, but the Marietta Daily Journal dateline is August 25th.
“Rumors have been swirling in recent weeks over the Board of Regents and what is said to be a plan for some bold moves just before Gov. Sonny Perdue leaves office. As the storyline goes, Perdue — who is joined at the hip with UGA President Michael Adams — would consider being named by the Board of Regents as president of the University of Georgia at the end of his term. In exchange for the creation of an open seat via the resignation of Adams, Adams would then be in strong consideration to become the system’s new chancellor. Sound crazy? Well … so did borrowing $21 million in the middle of a world financial meltdown. But Perdue pulled that one off didn’t he?
“But wouldn’t the new governor decide those matters? Not if the constitution means anything. Of all the board’s current members, only one has a term that ends in 2010. In fact, most of the members have terms that last well into the next governor’s first term in office. If they are willing to risk not being reappointed by the next governor, they could pull off an Adams-Perdue move with very little difficulty…
Admit it. You thought it couldn’t get any worse.
I wonder what Sonny’s position on playoffs is.
