Greg McGarity is sorry.

“We just didn’t pay enough attention to the details, and that’s my job regardless of who signs it.”

Well, yeah, that is your job.  So are they gonna make you run stadium steps until you puke, or what?

    I thought the point of those riders was so that the producer would pay attention to the details? See brown M & Ms and Van Halen. Much ado about nothing, IMO.

      I agree. They wanted an act to show up on short notice, and artists like this have specific requests. Why are we worried about Luda’s condom choices?

    No sweat McGoo. Congratulations on cash flowing that IPF. Sucker born every day.

    Paying $65K for that noise was where MCGarity’s sanity comes into question.

  4. I'm right, you're wrong

    Another example of this guy’s ineptitude. He is simply not qualified to be AD. In the 6 years since he left FL, they still have not filled his position. He was not Foley’s right hand man, he was simply an errand boy. All the problems at the Butts are now coming to the surface because we now have a head coach who is willing to speak his mind and tell you exactly what the problems are. CMR would never put his bosses in a bad light as he felt that was not Biblical…McGoof and Co are finding out just how good they had it in that respect. Word is that he is freaking out over Kirby’s frankness on the speaking circuit about how far behind we are because he literally does not possess the skill set to lead…anything.

      Agree. And we thought his P.R. skills were bad! He doesn’t even bother to read fricken contracts, or at least run it by somebody who has some sense. The Board may as well reserve 15 minutes at the beginning of every meeting to go over McG’s screw-ups.

    Asking for more money, Greg again plays the morality card to distract the fanbase from the fact his big three low-budget sports programs have won zero conference championships since he’s been here.

    And magically, it works.

    What a putz.

    I’m waiting to hear what he has to say about his baseball hire. 3 years of crap and now we have to donate for those seats too. McGoofy and Stricklin need to go………

      Amen brother….If CS doesn’t hold this recruiting class together, he’s done. Too much talent in this state leaves for other schools.

      • Monettadawg

        Oh lawd don’t get me started on the sad excuse we have for a baseball team. Way too much talent in Georgia for us to be as pathetic as we are.

    Are people still worked up about this? The puritans need to take a deep breath and go outside and the run back inside to make sure everyone’s using the bathroom that they’d prefer that they’re using. The bottles of wine Ludacris requested were probably just walked down from the Sky Suites, where they are stocked for every football game. What we’re really all up in arms about is the fact that the athletic department had to buy a bowl of condoms. I don’t know if Ludacris had sex in Sanford Stadium or not. I tend to seriously doubt it. I imagine that the performance rider was his boilerplate rider that goes to concert venues where he may be more likely to pick up groupies. Regardless, folks need to get over this one. If we want to be mad at Greg McGarity, we have plenty of reasons that are much more relevant.

      I don’t get the hoopla over 1/10 of 1% of the overall population. Restroom visits should correspond to your equiptment. If you’ve changed your equiptment by all means you may change your bathroom choice. If your a frustrated woman trapped in a male body then sit when you pee and hopefully the future will come when you are how you believe you should be.
      Don’t rush it though …Bruce Jenner is having second thoughts. Thank goodness he kept his penis. His bank acount sure has improved.

    • PTC DAWG

      Well said.

  9. I bet this guy can’t for that 90 day law to take effect so he has three months disclose every time he makes himself look like an idiot publicly.

  10. DawgPhan

    I dont get why he is apologizing for the rider. Who cares.

    • HVL Dawg

      Exactly. Is his board really that square?He should say he’s thinking about adding the same riders to his employment contract. Laugh about it and don’t give it a serious response.

      • Tom

        The point is he DIDN’T read it and the UGA Student Union or whatever did a few years back for the same artist and contract and took that crap out so no one would make them a laughingstock. Again, it doesn’t matter in a private contract, but you become a joke when a public institution representing the state is seen having to go to a drug store and buy condoms for a guy’s 11 minute afternoon set at a football game.

        The GSA guy with his picture in the hot tub in Vegas with champagne isn’t news because he did it in Vegas or Niagara; it’s news because he did it on YOUR dime, while you’re eating beans and franks.

        Like the small California town with a $21,000 avg. income while their public “servants” avg over $700K in compensation.

        It isn’t about the condoms, it’s about the proper limiting principles of public institutions. A pro, which we can ALL agree this guy isn’t, says, we’ll pay you $500 more, buy whatever you want with it, but I’m not being seen and more importantly, the good people who fund my beloved institution, are not being seen buying whatever your peccadilloes desire. We will just add $500 here and take out this paragraph here!

    • Bulldog Joe

      This whole apology thing is ludicrous.
