Michael Adams wants you to know he’ll always be there for you.

Woo, what’s that smell?  Oh, yeah, it’s the familiar odor of BS wafting from Michael Adams’ mouth.

“I think it [a nine-game conference schedule] could happen,” Adams said. “I know more and more conferences are going to that. The fans don’t like the games against some of the competition that we play, and I don’t blame them. It’s one of the reasons I voted against going from the 11th to the 12th game, because I thought it was going to do to us exactly what it has done…”

The fans, hunh…

This is the guy who thought nothing of passing money under the table to Jim Donnan, pushed Vince Dooley into hiring the Harricks and fashioned some of the most restrictive drug and arrest policies in the country for Georgia’s student-athletes, but we’re supposed to believe that Mr. Hands On couldn’t have come back from that meeting where he lost the vote on schedule expansion, picked up the phone and ordered his AD not to schedule another cupcake opponent with that extra game?  Sorry, not buying that one.

And is he so caught up in giving the fans what they want that he’s ready to storm the Bastille and push for that ninth conference game?  Hell, yea… wait, what?

Adams, whose tenure ends in June 30, will still be a voting member at SEC meetings later this month in Destin. He said he hasn’t decided how he personally feels between staying at eight or going to nine.

“But I think ultimately what will win out is fans are properly tired of seeing two or three really poor games per year,” he said.

No doubt ultimately he’ll take credit for the schedule change when it occurs long after he’s left office.  Because he cares.

    “Because he cares.”… about me, myself, and I. And his legacy.

    While I agree on Adams completely, the thought that all we did was add creampuffs with the 12th game is incorrect. In the 7 seasons since the 12th game became permanent, Georgia has played 13 BCS level out of conference games and if you add Boise, it is 14.

    In the 7 seasons prior to 2006 we played 9, but that includes 2 against Clemson which took place in those two temporary 12 game years (02-03). We also played Boise at home in 05. So even with the distortion of 2002-2003, Georgia has played 4 more “quality” opponents since the permanent 12 game schedule came into being. If you don’t count Boise and you discount the extra games in 02 and 03, the only out of conference major opponent Georgia played from 99-05 was Georgia Tech.

    Now, Greg McGarity has done his best to go the cream puff route, which is reflected by last year’s embarrassing OOC schedule. Historically, Georgia has done much better at OOC scheduling than most of its SEC bretheren, especially those who inhabit the western reaches of our conference. That pattern has held true since the 12th game came into permanence.

    Not to mention kicking folks off of North Campus and restricting tailgating.

    This sorry excuse can’t leave the scene soon enough. The Harricks are still more popular in Athens than Adams. I hope they only name a sewage plant for him as his “legacy” at UGA .

    What is truly sad is that I believe Adams would vote for a 9th conference game before McGarity would.

    How did they get ears on that dildo?

    He makes Emil Faber look substantial by comparison.

    McGarity wants the home game EVERY year plus Richt thinks 8 SEC and GT is enough.

    Nine SEC games means more money which can be taken away from the Athletic Department and given to his Foundation.

    Of course he’s in favor of it.

    Stop whining about Adams. Jere Morehead is our new president and is a friend of the athletics dept. Take the rear view mirror off and look ahead.
