“It’s a new beginning.”

If you’d like something to harsh your buzz, picture Kirby Smart working as Georgia’s head coach while Michael Adams was still school president.

“I don’t think Georgia’s going to become Alabama,” said Michael Adams, who served as Georgia’s president from 1997 to 2013. “It’s a different constituency, it’s a different mindset, it’s a much different state, a much more pluralistic state. There probably are some elements of what Coach Saban has done that will work at Georgia, and there’s some elements that have been there a long time, through a number of coaches at Georgia, that I don’t think will change.”

Wuh.  I just got shivers.  And not in a good way.

Eh, maybe I’m just overreacting.  After all, Greg McGarity would be on the job, right?

“He’s coming from a culture of accountability,” McGarity said. “Not that we didn’t have that, but it’s a level of accountability where everybody’s going to be on their toes to a different level.”

Not a minute too soon.

    For Adams the “different level” means none for him. He should teach a political science class titled “Teflon 401”


  2. That is why Kirby did not come as DC when Adams was still snooping around BM. He knows that Adams will not allow a new outlook.

      or maybe he knew CMR was trending down and he (Kirby) would be better served coaching championships for an a-hole Saban than going 9-3 with CMR.

    The Big Ten guy Rittenberg nails it.

    Great article.

    Nick Saban would have run off Adams if he had come to Georgia instead of Alabama. The Georgia way started changing when Pruitt shamed McGarity in public about the indoor practice facility. Adams was like a jealous high school principal when the head football coach gets all the love. He was a fool for the way he treated the legend Vince Dooley.

    McGarity: “…but it’s a level of accountability where everybody’s going to be on their toes to a different level.”

    So says the weakest link in the chain. No doubt CKS is searching the internet for a summer PR camp for A.D.s.

    Adams was a total ass wipe. Even from an academic standpoint I think you can make a good case that the good things that happened while he was at UGA happened in spite of him and not because of him.

    But when you factor in his Athletic meddling beginning with his treatment of Dooley, the hiring of Harrick and on down the line you can see we are lucky to have survived him.

    I can’t believe he got quoted so much in that article – that Rittenberg guy doesn’t consider his sources very well.

    I assumed that Adams would still be lurking in the weeds even after his retirement. Between his golden parachute and persona it appears that even the big boosters who were his allies don’t miss him.


  8. Can Michael Adams please keep his nose out of our business? Go pound sand, Il Duce.
