Well, I give Greg McGarity credit for something else today — at least he’s not signing contracts anymore without having them vetted by the lawyers first.
UGA and Bowling Green athletic officials last week signed off on a nonconference men’s basketball game to be played in Stegeman Coliseum in the second week of November.
It’s a standard move in the springtime to fill out holes in a schedule for the coming season.
What was different in the two page document — obtained by the Athens Banner-Herald from Bowling Green in an open records request — was the language that reflects planning for future sports events in the time of COVID-19.
It refers for the first time in a UGA contract to “epidemic, pandemic or public health emergency,” in a force majeure clause that would make it “impossible or impractical the playing of the Game or which prevents the participation of at least one of the Parties in the Game.”
You’ve come a long way from condom clauses, Greg. Good show.
