Georgia AD upset with South Carolina's damage to hedges, says USC AD apologized
South Carolina shocked college football Saturday with the 20-17 win over undefeated Georgia. Naturally, following a massive upset like this, players and coaches will celebrate.
Only this time, South Carolina players created some damage to Georgia’s sacred hedges during the postgame celebration.
UGA Athletics Director Greg McGarity told DawgNation.com that South Carolina Athletics Director Ray Tanner contacted him Sunday afternoon and apologized for the damage. McGarity clearly wasn’t too happy about the incident.
“I don’t like it all,” McGarity told the outlet. “We sure don’t do that when we win at an opponents’ venue under Kirby’s leadership.”
Those are some strong words for Will Muschamp, the South Carolina coach who played for Georgia from 1991-94. Muschamp obviously took part in the postgame celebration, and he can be seen below taking a piece of the hedges from his defensive coordinator Travaris Robinson.
