inappropriate content, vandalism
I suggest that someone start a "Controversy" section if they wish to discuss negatives about him and leave more factual content to his biography at the top. Arwcheek 15:47, 9 February 2006 (UTC)
As it is, there are only facts in the article (he was booed at football games, donors have publicy said they have problems with him and are limiting donations because of this. These are facts. There could be a lot more. If you interpret them as "negatives" against him, this is just evidence that you agree he is controversial.
earlier it had said how "hated" he was by faculty and students, which, true or not, wasn't really the best language to use on wikipedia.. The sentence was actually replacing a far better presentation of info so i reverted it. if you want to put it back in you can, but I think it's more fitting for a different section.

Agreed. The more I think about it, I'm not sure if "unpopular" is even really fair, given that I'm not sure there's a survey to prove that.
It is obvious that someone has an axe to grind.
The following unsourced and subjective paragraph was edited out:
President Adams is a controversial figure at the University of Georgia. He is widely unpopular among the student body , receiving boos at Sanford Stadium during half-time at a University football game. He also is unpopular with numerous Alumni who withhold contributions to the University due to personality conflicts with President Adams and the president's dismissal of athletics director Vince Dooley.[verification needed]
The following unsourced paragraph was deleted:
In 2004 President Adams was given a vote of "No Confidence" by the faculty of the UGA's Franklin College of Arts and Sciences, the largest college in the university.
The following irrelevant paragraph was deleted:
The Facebook group Michael Adams should be fired! was recently formed drawing massive membership from current and former UGA students.
Advocacy of NCAA football playoff
The following text has been erased, as it is opinion-driven, of dubious relevance and cites no source:
"Unfortunately, many around the country questioned the timing of his announcement, as his Georgia Bulldogs finished 2nd in the final standings; especially since he had voted against a playoff during the SEC meetings last year. However, the Bulldogs didn't even win the SEC East title, which contributed to them being bypassed in the title game." —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 00:56, 18 January 2008 (UTC)
I have temporarily fully protected this article from editing because of repeated insertions of edits that do not meet neutral point of view and appear to give undue weight to certain sections of this person's life. Please discuss the proposed additions here on the talk page before going further. Other uninvolved administrators may lift the full protection if they feel it is no longer required.
