The indoor practice facility so many Georgia fans have fretted about apparently will soon be on its way.
Georgia Athletic Director Greg McGarity confirmed on Tuesday that he’ll ask the UGA Athletic Association board of directors to approve a multi-million dollar project during its regularly-scheduled fall meeting in September. If approved, construction would begin “as soon as possible.”
Wonder what changed his mind. Shame is out of the question. My money’s on he simply got tired of hearing Richt complain about it. Way to go, Coach.
Oh, I shouldn’t say shame is completely out of the question. I suspect we’re about to get an earful on that front.
In the past, McGarity has required that the UGA development office raise at least half the funds for a project through donations before it moves forward with construction. McGarity indicated those efforts are already underway.
“There will be a fundraising piece to this,” he said.
