Granted, he’s gathering low-hanging fruit, but Jon Solomon’s piece on what a disappointment the addition of the 12th game to the college football schedule has turned out to be is an epic snarkfest. And I do mean epic. Here’s a sample:
“I would understand if the media misinterpreted the motive for the 12th game as a long-term fiscal fix, but I would be disappointed if athletics administrators saw it as anything but a short-term salve,” NCAA President Myles Brand wrote in 2005. “I believe most administrators and presidents understand that the decision is not a panacea for fiscal responsibility.”
No, that’s why a playoff is coming. But I digress.
**Sniff**. That’s beautiful.

Like it or not with UGA’s home and away situation with Tech and the WLOCP in JAX every year the only way for UGA to get enough home games every season is to sign deals with teams that do not insist on a trip to their home field in return, i.e. cupcakes.
Disgraceful what programs did with that 12th game opportunity, and UGA is one of the worst. Shows where fans rank with guys like McGarity. Saturdays in the fall are so precious, why waste them?
