i don't know who came up with this sort of budgeting mentality, but he/she needs to be shot. that's NO way to run a business. must have been a government worker of some sort who devised such a stupid scheme. is bernie madoff teaching budgeting at uga now? there is a very sound and systematic way to handle the $125 million long term debt. take $8 million every year from your reserve fund and pay down the long term debt. Continue to add to that fund even as you're taking money out of it. You can do this quickly by doing one big thing: winning big. You could easily offset any single year's debt pay down amount of $8 million by winning the MNC. The revenue from licensed sales of UGA football products would much more than offset that annual figure of $8 million. Winning will cure your debt situation.
Where UGA has gone wrong is that they manage the AD checkbook just like Rankin Smith and the former falcons ownership. They don't ever really make any significant advancements that would allow you to win it all, instead settling for 10 win seasons most years. This is a play it safe attitude. This is exactly what I referred to in my earlier manifesto this week. Playing scared. UGA is the master of it. We do it on the field and in the board room. We don't see that a $6 or 8 million dollar investment could yield us at least 2x that much the following year or two. All we see is the glass half empty. We see that we cannot absolutely guarantee a championship, so we act as if we'll never have it. We settle for being good, but never great. I guarantee you that if you were to get inside Bama's books the year before Saban won his first title there and then compared it to the year after his first title, you'd see a dramatic shift in revenues from licensed products. And it would be in the millions. Add to that the additional brand value and free publicity. That also drives students from out of state to your school. that increases general fund revenues. Everybody wins in this situation. The bankers on the athletic board never wanna take risks, but they always want to reap the rewards of someone else's risk.

if we're in the red from an annual operating budget position, then we don't need to be spending regular operating revenues on capital improvements. that's what the $70 million + is for. and that BM addition was partially a good idea. the computer lab was a genius idea. the stupid 30 yd "indoor practice facility" was moronic at the highest levels. if you're going to practice inside, it needs to be a true 120 yard facility, full width, goal posts etc. otherwise, it's dollhouse scale football.

forgive me for saying this, BUT he's like Obama. You simply cannot trust what he says because he will use any opening to better his situation even if it's a lie.

dawson is the one we need to keep. the others, apparently, are dead weight. johnson and bowman definitely are.
thanks guys. i hope it wasn't too much. i just didn't see any way around the issues.

true. mitchell committed to us about a week before signing day. i think we already had drew in hand way before nsd. i think crowell was too, but he had the bulldog up there wanting to make a big splash on nsd with that turd, gabe wright.

i am the mayor of Realville. I live in the real world. I know what we typically do, and I have seen it for years. there is only one year that I can recall that we actually finished with a whirl, and it was 1998. we closed with durrell robinson AND reggie brown, the two best wideouts in the country. yes, i know that donnan closed one year with marcus stroud even though it was widely thought that he was going to uf. that was one kid. brown and robinson were 2 kids plus a whole host of others like tim wansley. we haven't had that type of finish in a long time.
i have a bad feeling about national signing day this year. don't know why, but i just think we get shafted late on lots of kids that we really need. and, of course, our staff will play it down and look weak.

we didn't let him "slip" through. we decided that we liked kennar johnson better. keep in mind that, at least up to this point, johnson has done absolutely nothing and has given our coaches zero reason to think he will contribute in the future. it was grantham's brainfart that caused this.

we see it every time murray goes into the spread. and i bet that's almost all you'll see next year with mason because that's what he is comfortable in.

i wouldn't get an lg. a repairman told me that all of the replacement parts have to come from korea where the appliances are made. get a whirlpool or GE. readily available parts.

a sniff would be an appearance in the game, at least in my book.
actually, i'd put south carolina and miss state's academics below auburn's.
I disagree with you on dawson. When he finally got into some games, he played at least as well as swann,a seasoned veteran. Did he have room for improvement? Absolutely. No doubt. Was he as bad as you're portraying? I don't think so.

Oline, secondary and punt team.

There is no doubt in my mind that our coaches or at least mark himself takes what he believes is the "high road" and doesn't want to run up scores or really pound teams into embarrassment for fear that it'll somehow come back to hurt us in the future. He's too concerned for what the other coach or team will think of him. It hurts us definitely.
Bama was down. Auburn's non conf schedule was a joke. And ohio state had to lose. Auburn did what was within its own control. But they had to have other things to happen that were totally out of their control. Thus the "luck" factor. Also, they have zero standards when it comes to admitting students who have been dismissed by other programs for serious moral flaws. We get burned on that because Marshall was a Uga reject and scam newton was at least a Georgia kid. It burns.

that's not really legit. let's examine all of the facts. first, auburn continually gets rejected kids who've been kicked out of other schools. uga would never do that. we have standards. auburn has ZERO standards when it comes to personal behavior. there is also no way in hell auburn or any other team would be able to withstand the number of injuries that we sustained.
