I see another Greg McGarity PR campaign has been launched. He’s tough, but often misunderstood. Just ask him.
“You have to understand that the decisions that you make will always be challenged by everyone,” he said. “Maybe not challenged, but questioned. …I’ve always felt like any decision that’s made is made in the best interest of the institution. Sometimes that’s not in the best interest of an individual or a team or a coach or what have you. …I think sometimes people assume, they guess. They might read what’s on social media and then they form their opinion at that time. A lot of people voice frustration, they don’t understand. We are basically limited at times to talk about it until it’s all over. The hope is people would trust you to make the right decisions.”
The funny thing about this is that events of the past six months have overtaken the concerns about a dysfunctional program many of us had last December. Immediately after the bowl game, this comment would have had me stewing. Now, I find that I can’t get worked up about it anymore. So feel free to keep spinning, Greg. As long as everyone associated with the program appears to be rowing in the same direction, the rest doesn’t matter to me.
