But don’t worry.  Mr. Accountability is on the mother.

Or…?

    “Or…?”

    Or we won’t see it. Either way, please send in your checks.

  3. He is in total CYA mode at this point. The Directors Cup finish isn’t going to be good, and there’s really only one place to point the finger of blame.

      Right…directly at all of those facilities improvements that cost the reserve fund so much money. Amazing, I tell you, that we’ve not taken on any debt. That’s the real story here, dagnabit.

    or we’ll have to raise ticket prices and donation levels some more so I can build the reserve fund in case we get better.

    Good….at least he is acknowledging it. If he does not have “marked improvements”, his future should not be a surprise. His statements sets up perfectly, get it done or move out of the way……

  6. I just want to get this right: our baseball record under Strickland is under .500 with 0 NCAA appearances, but somehow on the ride home from Hoover the AD didn’t come to the conclusion to do something about baseball?

    I guessing sweeping Tech carries some momentum?

        Correct. Can’t risk bringing in someone we would actually have to pay.

        Same thing with the Athletic Director.

        Safest jobs in the country.

      WELL……at least he let a fellow go who had a .740 career win percent, he has that going for him. No more mediocrity………

      Not in November 2015. I understand the reasoning in the firing in 2015. I understand the reasoning in retaining the coach in 2017. I just don’t understand how one guy can have the conflicting rationales to buy into both conclusions.

    I’ve been told by numerous folks that I’ll need at least 6-8 more years to get the program going.

    Be careful wishing to get rid of McGarity. His replacement will probably be Karla Williams. Nothing would say ” we are a tolerant, inclusive, politically correct university” like hiring the first black woman as an AD at an SEC school. If she were also a gay transgender she would already have the job.

      How about instead you just say she shouldn’t get the job because she has worked under McGarity and might not have fresh ideas, instead of making it about her race/gender or a bizarre shot at transgenders.

      She will get the job because she was groomed in the financial corruption of The Georgia Way, not because of that other shit.

      No experienced Athletic Director would accept having that much money skimmed from his or her program AND suffer the indignity of having to lie about it.

      For this reason, the next athletic director will have to come from within the building.

    Football needs not only to get to ATL but win the damn game or McGarity will still be stuck in “splainin'” mode. Only an SEC championship is going to create enough of a distraction from these doldrums and football is the only major sport that is even remotely close and that’s debatable. More pressure on Kirby this season than was ever on Richt simply because the entire program is so bad. McGarity doesn’t just need some good news, he needs some great news.

    Like any good politician, he just doesn’t tell us how long into the future we’ll have to wait for those marked improvements.
