As much grief as I give Greg McGarity, it’s only fair to dish out praise when he’s deserving. Here’s a case for that:
Fans seem to be happy that they are getting a break from noon kickoffs. The Appalachian State game is on Sept. 2 at 6:15 p.m. and the Samford game on Sept. 16 is at 7:30 p.m.
“The number of noon games we have had previously and the reaction we’ve had from our fans and others was that was not a desirable time,” McGarity said. “Frankly, among all conference teams, especially in the central time zone, that’s not a great time, but we all know that’s part of the TV package. We did ask for any consideration. It’s never guaranteed, but we did ask for some consideration for non-noon kickoffs whenever possible.”
He listened and he asked. You can’t ask for more than that. From such small gestures of courtesy, fan appreciation is born.
Feel free to make it a habit, sir.
