    Well, at least they tried something fans would have been interested in. Unlike ‘Family Friendly Zones’.

    I suppose in 90 days or so we can find out what artist(s) they reached out to.

    Give Greg a break, it takes effort to NOT find a band in Athens, Georgia.

    • Indeed. He should be totally embarrassed by this. If he was capable of recognizing when he has stepped in shit…he would be.

        Most of the guys and gals in town would be happy to get their name out and play in Tate Plaza for some Chick-Fil-A and some smokes.

          Now McGoofy is back pedaling in the Red n Black article, which says “McGarity was quick to point out Tuesday that the team had not formally announced anything in regards to a concert.” Jeez, does this guy take ownership of anything? He’s constantly changing his position on things. A jellyfish has more spine than him.

              why go abroad, there are several cow pastures around the state that they can scoop up ~150 lbs. of substance to replace him, then buy a Mr. Potato head box and stick ears on it.

  3. Again–I really believe that the press’ snark is going to be around for a while now. And we thought Wagers’ grudge about the celebration penalty was overwrought. Can’t wait to see how long the Kirby’s Law grudge lasts. So far the writers sure seem to be taking it well!!

    To make sure he doesn’t shoot blanks again, Greg will have his Kirby’s Law FOIA Receptionist hire a search firm to secure pre-recorded #2017 G-Day go-to sounds

      B-M thinking they are too good to leverage one of the country’s leading journalism, public relations, law, criminal justice, and music business schools right down the street is the most Georgia thing ever.

  7. Lots of disappointed alumni who were looking forward to making this a great Homecoming weekend topped off by a fun concert either before or after the game…why promise something and make so little effort to make it reality? Thomas Johnson Class of ’74

    The reason he didn’t engage with a band has to be because he figured how much of a dent in the reserve fund hiring a band to play to 93K for a non-ticketed event might cost. Do a FOIA request on cost estimates/budgets for a concert and my bet is you’ll find that the rabbit trail starts and stops with someone saying…’that’s going to put a six-figure dent in the budget.’ Free concerts are never ‘free.’

    It doesn’t have the cache of a band or even a frisbee dog, but my granddaughter has a papillon pup that retrieves tennis balls. Should I pencil them in for the halftime show, Greg?

    Face it, wouldn’t have mattered who they booked to perform…many wouldn’t bitched about the act. I think this is a good thing, just have the game.

      except they said that there would be a band, then made no efforts to actually secure a band.

      it’s athens and we have millions of dollars and we couldnt secure a band. It has to be one of the most inept things ever.

      • Most places look for a person that under promises and over delivers. Not UGA…and not their AD. He does the opposite. I’m thinking we have some 22 year old cold callers down-stairs that could do a better job than Old Greg.

    I get that the game is the main attraction and to just have had the game would have been great with me. My beef is that Greg Magoo did not deliver and expects us to believe some lame ass excuse he gives. The fact is that GM is a low life with no spine! He needs to be fired!! UGA Alum 1989.

    Perhaps Greg McGator should have asked Spurrier to come do a
