Post Scheduling afterthought

Monday April 24, 2006

Ever notice how when the scheduling discussion comes up, one of the most common words used is “embarrassing”? I’m sorry – it’s not Mark Richt’s problem that something like a football schedule causes shame and office scorn that you have trouble coping with.

It’s OK to admit it – we’re selfish when it comes to scheduling. That’s the nature of a fan. We want to see a great game every week (though woe to all if they lose), we want to travel to some new football shrine or at least get a good golf trip out of it, and we want to shut up the damn Tennessee fan down the hall who goes on and on about how they played Notre Dame. That’s fine – just as long as we admit that the best interests of the team is way down the list of priorities.
