This is beginning to smell like uga doings. If so it is already backfiring. One OL already leaving. Maybe the HS players in Ga.Do not like being told where they must play if they want any accolades. The dot need to visit wayx and see all the signs that look exactly like this one with the few exceptions. They honor MLK which is ok, and there is Ozzie Davis prkway and many others. This is not only the RR capital of the world but there must be more 4 way stops here than any other city in Ga. or any other city. If this is not on a national hi-way what does the feds have to do with it?

The reason I am comparing WayX and Gainesville is they are about the same size and the Feds have no business meddling into the affairs of either. Sorry about that but I am Po-ed.

Let's timeline this


Mar 9, 2017, 8:52 PM

Man gets degree, wins national title, had a road named after him, feds threaten to cut funding due to sign color on a road probably not more than 1 mile long. Forecast: said man meets with President in near future along with the rest of the team and we never hear of this again. Read sign stays same.

Just sayin it seems this is more likely a disgruntled Bama/SEC fan employed by the DOT rather than a standard employee. Such quick notice of infringement of regs points to that being likely I think.

Just change the color of the sign and put a 85ft banner up.... or a Roadside sign behind it with Gainesville colors no big deal. The road is short as all get out anyways

That wouldn't work either...

The banner would, but all "official" signs have designated colors.

Not saying it was an overstep but did you at least read the whole article?

They literally offered a much better option of giving the 30 days notice to remove the sign. Instead, the government went full on threat from the get.

Is it possible for libtards to have reading comprehension and not suck at the teet of the gubmint?

Mar 10, 2017, 4:19 PM

The press release said that failure to comply could jeopardize federal funding. There is nothing indicating that their funding was actually being taken away imminently. No overreach was even suggested by the story, the city is just mad because it screwed up and has to pay for a new sign.

Is everyone suggesting it's inappropriate for the to be a standard for road signs?

I'm not seeing any reason I'm supposed to be all butthurt and snowflakey over this.

Mar 10, 2017, 6:29 PM

You would think some of them really really smart engineers from Georger Text over at the GDOT would have known better. Not a good idea to put a street name sign on top of a stop sign like that. And typically street name signs are supposed to be white letters on green or white letters on blue. I think it was conspiracy. After all his high school team was the Red Elephants, right?
