Super Bowl MVP Hines Ward Went To School Where?

Yes, former University of Georgia (UGA) quarterback Hines Ward was named most-valuable player (MVP) of Super Bowl XL. But something seems to have been lost on the media and the University of Georgia (UGA). If you had watched the ABC Sports presentation of the starting lineups for the games, each of the players gave their names and the names of the schools they played for. All except for Hines Ward. Instead of saying the "University of Georgia", he simply said "Forest Park, Georgia". Why would he do this? It might be because he was displeased with the way that UGA handled the termination of his coach Jim Donnan (40-19 from 1996-2000). Or it might be dissatisfaction with the way UGA President Michael Adams fired coaching legend and athletics director Vince Dooley. Or maybe it was nothing at all. Still, it is an interesting question since UGA has played up the MVP award on their web site and most certainly will play it up for recruiting purposes.
