University of Georgia Celebrates
Earlier this week the President of the University of Georgia Michael Adams announced that this week would be an official celebration of a quarter century of underachievement. In a press release on Monday, he had this to say:
"I am proud to announce that under the misguided direction of Mr. Dooley and Mr. Evans this year we are completing one of the finest periods of successful underachievement in University of Georgia history. Over the past 25 years, despite having one of the nation's top recruiting classes each and every year, and even taking the drastic measures of serious NCAA violations every 4.16 years - the UGA football program has managed to underchieve with unbelievable success, only winning a single conference championship over that timeframe."
He went on to add:
"This accomplishment would not have been possible without the valued assistance of Mr. Spurrier, Mr. Fulmer and especially Mr. Donnan. These men worked extremely hard to waste more high school talent than any program in recent memory, a truly extraordinary task."
Finally, he finished with this:
"What makes this even sweeter is that our supposed step-sister in Atlanta has failed to underachieve at the same rate. Even though they manage to lose to us fairly regularly, they haven't been able to keep the same rate of underchievement, even going so far as to win a National Championship and two conference titles in that same time frame. It's quite an accomplishment for our program to have been able to underachieve at an even higher rate than our rivals."
Herschel Walker was quoted as well:
"God, they've sucked since I left - haven't they?"
