UGA president Dr. Michael Adams regrets "Not getting the final five yards against Alabama."

UGA president Dr. Michael Adams.

What is retiring University of Georgia president Dr. Evil Michael Adams biggest regret when it comes to his role in interfering with shaping the UGA athletic program in his administration?

Is it hiring Jim Harrick Sr. as men's basketball coach, which ended in a big academic scandal? No.

Is it his firing of the legendary Vince Dooley as the school's longtime athletic director? No.

Is it that there are more than a few UGA supporters that probably hate him even more than they hate Steve Spurrier or Nick Saban? No.

No, Adams says his biggest regret is something that happened on the football field, and which he had no actual control over.

“I don’t have many regrets,” Adams said during an interview in his north campus office in his final weeks as president before his retirement on June 30. “You want to know what my biggest regret is? Not getting the final five yards against Alabama. To have gone out in the national championship game, and I felt that night that was the national championship game and I think the following events proved me right. I’m not sure I’m over that one yet.”

That, above anything else, should tell you what a shameless individual Dr. Evil Adams is.It should also tell you why the Bulldog Nation won't miss him one bit.
