Shredded Shrubbery Sparks Sullen Students Saturday

It was a scene we have all seen too often in Sanford Stadium.

With UGA’s narrow lead dwindling in the fourth quarter, Georgia Tech Running Back Qua Searcy ran for a six yard touchdown to seal the late game victory for the Yellow Jackets.

As time expired, joyous Tech players stormed the field to celebrate their victory. But the gridiron giants did more than just revel in their victory, they caused significant damage to the field.

Players tore chunks of the infamous Chinese privet hedges that have enclosed the field at Sanford since 1929, and stomped directly on the Super G logo that adorns the 50 yard line.

While these defiant acts appear to have been quite destructive, UGA Athletics’ Director of Sports Turf Daniel Moore says, the fix is simpler than what meets the eye.
