This is frickin’ hilarious.
In response to my post about the athletic department taking the maximum time it could under the new open records law to release the contract details of the 2020 game with East Tennessee State…
The memorandum shows that East Tennessee’s athletics director signed the memo in May – UGA athletics director Greg McGarity’s signature is undated – but the memo was not released until Friday. It was in response to a request for scheduling contracts made by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution on July 18. UGA is using the full 90 days the state legislature gave it to respond to athletics-related requests, starting in July.
… Marc Weiszer pointed out to me that he wrote about the same details back in June, before the law went into effect.
Which means that the school had already shown it could gather and release the information within a shorter and more relevant time frame, but chose not to do so again, simply because it could. Message sent, I’d say. I don’t know if that’ll win any championships, but Butts-Mehre showed the Georgia Way has still got game.
