Georgia athletic director "extremely frustrated" by game postponement

Georgia's athletic director Greg McGarity voiced frustration today after the bulldogs' game against Vanderbilt was officially postponed. The game is set to be made up on December 19th at Georgia.

McGarity who is known for his calm demeanor reportedly became angry about the cancellation and fears that the game won't be made up on December 19th as intended. Of this he said, “It’s just extremely frustrating and extremely disappointing, especially if the game on the 19th can’t be played, and that’s what we fear.”

This is the second cancelled game that the bulldogs have experienced this season.

In an interview with UGA Sports, McGarity said, "We're all beat up, we’re all tired of this, and to have the rug pulled out from underneath you so close to game day, is just frustrating. I feel so sorry for our coaches, our players and our support staff. They’ve proven that you can deal with Covid effectively if you follow the guidelines that Ron (Courson) and Kirby (Smart) have preached to these young men, and these young men have listened, and they really avoided Covid all fall"

McGarity is retiring from his position on December 31st after 10 years at the university.
