UGA administration confiscates ‘Fire McGarity’ sign at basketball game

The Georgia Bulldog fan base has not been happy with the way longtime head coach Mark Richt’s career ended with the football team. Many of them feel that Richt was forced out of his position rather than it being a mutual decision.

One student was so upset that he expressed his transgressions at Tuesday night’s men’s basketball game against Oakland. The student, Alex Kent, had a sign that read “Fire ADGM”, an acronym for Athletic Director Greg McGarity.

According to Classic City Today, security went and confiscated the sign during the game. There has been nothing confirmed, but it was reported that “administration” informed security to remove the sign.

“I feel like it was an appropriate way to express my feelings and the sentiments of the entire Bulldog Nation after the events that unfolded on Sunday and Monday,” Kent said. “I, like many others, stand behind Coach Mark Richt and the football team. There is a great deal of concern surrounding the direction of our athletic department and I believe that starts at with Mr. McGarity. He isn’t even here to show his support for our basketball team tonight. As Georgia, we should aspire for better leadership.”

What do you think, Bulldog fans? Should they have removed that sign or should fans be allowed to speak their minds?
