McGarity wouldn’t say that Georgia will have an indoor facility in five years, but Richt and McGarity have talked about the subject recently when the Bulldogs had to go indoors. McGarity said he would look further into it.
They’re talking! That’s nice.
Of course, as you might expect, the real problem will be who pays for such a thing. You can be damned sure it ain’t coming out of the reserve fund. In fact, McGarity’s got just the idea for coming up with the jack – you people support Mark Richt, you pay for it.
“I know a lot of people say they would love to contribute,” McGarity said. “If we do that, let’s see who will step up (for an indoor facility). Everybody says there are thousands that would love to, but when it comes time to write the check or to make that happen … I think the perception is that we print money around here and that’s not really the case. We do have a healthy reserve (around $70 million), but I think what people have to understand is we have $120 million in debt.”
Maybe they could have GPB host a telethon. Operators are standing by to take your calls, Dawgnation!
