Georgia AD Greg McGarity ‘angry’ about cancellation, fears Vanderbilt won’t make up game

ATHENS — Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity has built a reputation over the past 10 years for being a kind, gentle man who doesn’t get angry.

That changed quickly on Friday.

“I don’t take things personal, but when our institution suffers, it upsets me greatly,” said McGarity, fuming at the news that Vanderbilt won’t bring a team to Athens on Saturday for the Bulldogs’ scheduled Senior Day.

“When something effects our school, it’s extremely frustrating.”

The No. 8-ranked Bulldogs (6-2) were scheduled to play the 0-8 Commodores at 4 p.m. on Saturday, but news broke Friday that the academically-oriented SEC school was not prepared to field a team on account of COVID-19.
