The naming is the hardest part.

Georgia’s IPF, which in these here parts has been named in honor of a certain departed defensive coordinator, is being officially christened the William Porter Payne Indoor Athletic Facility.  Good for him; I can think of plenty of worse options.

Now if they would just sit him down for some advice on customer relations

    The AD doesn’t want your advice, he just wants your money.

    I know of father and son dentists by that name, Payne and Payne. If the son’s first name would be Morrise and they used his shortened nick-name, it could really click.

    Linking the Masters comparison post just sours me on UGA’s Gameday experience. The trips to ND and Pasadena didn’t help. On the positive, I started using the ‘Masters Model” as a teaching tool to student workers and a way to define standards in my workspace.

    Can we at least name the restroom after Jeremy Pruitt?

    I was still holding out hope for the Jeremy Pruitt Memorial Indoor Practice Facility.

    I’m really happy that the Payne name is there, that’s cool. Works great for the athletes too. Calling it the house of Payne will be great for team dynamics.

    I enjoyed the masters post link too. I’ve pondered the same dichotomy between masters and really any institutional event. Disney theme parks are another good benchmark though they aren’t very shy about pricing themselves as a benchmark. Disney knows how to treat its customers though.

    I think it is actually William and Porter Payne for Billy and his father.


  9. I still say we should call it the CJPMIPF just to remind people what it took to get the AD, the President and the Board off their @$$3$ to get the damn thing built if The Georgia Way ever finds its way back into the financial management of the football program.
