Why we’re so good

” The whole thing was the right time. ” I told you he did not want to coach here after 2007 – that he’d QUIT. Given-up. Told us there’s something besides winning that’s important here at Georgia. You guys NEVER were able to read it. I certainly was. I told you so !

“The whole thing was the right time”

Recruiting we’ve been averaging # 8 – what was it supposed to have been ? Worse ? Better ? Our recruiting class is ranked # 13 today.

12-13-2015

 

For years I have submitted it should be higher.  We should recruit better I said.  Not just the incredible holes in recruiting when we were running an old-style antiquated out-of-date offense requiring fullbacks and we went 6 consecutive recruiting classes not recruiting a single fullback when there are 200 top fullbacks out there many from here in-state every year.  Not just the holes on OL and DL years and years with all the talent here in-state to fill those.  Not just all the misses on top quarterbacks, sometimes even when we had them in-house and told them to play some other position that the one “ahead” of them on the depth chart is far better so no reason even consider him at QB. Not just explosive players on offense and failure utter failure of getting top WR to come here with that offense that was so pass-happy.

ESPN announces today that we have the # 1 recruiting base.

I’ve pointed out to you for years how great The University of Georgia is for a football recruit.  That we’re an International World Class University, and that we rank far higher than almost every other football program.

 

That they should want to come here for the education.

 

All about the millions of us who are fans of The Georgia Bulldogs.  Millions upon millions upon millions upon millions !

 

That our facilities our stadium and our campus so beautiful both, Classic City Athens # 1 college town, # 6 in merchandise sales for our beloved Bulldogs and # 1 Party School – not fair to rank us with the amateurs !

 

The ladies ranked # 6 in the nation, and I realize I am biased I think higher even than that !  And, we have a predominantly ladies University.  All the choices for degrees, even Engineering.

 

# 1 Mascot all sports all-time – world’s most recognized mascot !

 

# 11 All-Time in Wins

 

# 3 All-Time in Bowl Wins

 

# 2 Forbes’ Magazine Most Football Revenue !

 

# 5 Most NFL Draft Picks !

 

# 11 All-Time Academic All-Americans The University of Georgia.

 

15 Big Huge Bowl games both teams ranked top of the Final AP Poll nation watching us, mostly won by us and 6 of those NC.

 

26 Bulldogs’ Seasons of 80 % Win Percentage.

 

39 Bulldogs have Won the NFL Championship Trophy !

 

4 Bulldogs – most in the world – have been named MVP NFL Championship Game.

 

Our reputation in recruiting running backs !  UGA  University of Ground Attack !

 

Our other sports and how we’ve Won 50 National Championships.

 

We do need a new gym.

 

All the stars for The Georgia Bulldogs going on to great fame in coaching and in announcing !

 

17 seasons of 0 or 1 loss.

 

ESPN states we’re # 1 destination in recruiting for ALL these reasons I have been telling you we are so great.

 

This state produces the # 4 most recruits who go on to the NFL.

 

This state produces the # 1 most recruits to The SEC.

 

This state produces the # 3 most recruits to the Power 5 Conferences.

We really have not had the Elite talent.  Unfortunately when we did, we wasted it.

 

We should get far more of the very Elite talent than we have.  But, when guys like Todd Gurley II says that he is sick and tired of being mediocre, losing, and going to lousy stinking bowl games as a result, other Elite recruits heard him loudly and clearly.

 

Many knew it before even coming here.

 

Surely we were negatively recruited against.

 

We went too many times and gave away scholarships for kickers and punters – that is NOT done.  They make them walk-on.

 

We had 2 scholarships tied up together for 4 years at Punter !

 

We’re actually supposed to do even better than we have been at Average Scout.com Recruiting Rankings of # 8 for 15 years now.

 

It should be higher.

 

Way too many 3-stars given scholarships here and any of them injured after offering and they committing who got an injury, we kept it in place while others retracted their offers.

 

Of course, we ALSO kicked them off the team at alarming rates.

 

We got down to 72 signed scholarship recruits who were left out of 118 signed to be playing here and that was this time last season !

 

We played favorites.  We played a trophy for everyone.

 

We LOST football games.  4 a season average for 8 years, including this one.

 

Unacceptable.

 

Read a blog yesterday who states now that the fired guy was a successful coach.

 

Seriously.

 

I have news for you, he was far from successful and did not recruit well.

 

We will do far better without him.

 

Far better.

 

Said that for 8 years now.

 

Now, you will see it !

 

This is the break-down on Georgia Bulldogs as # 1 best recruiting situation :

http://espn.go.com/blog/ncfrecruiting/on-the-trail/insider/post?id=73823

 

Our recruiting class is ranked # 12 today Scout.com.

 

We have not gotten ANY commitments since he went on his ANNUAL SWOON !

 

Come here because we do it the right way.

 

We do not over-recruit.

 

Signed 34 players this Summer.  34.

 

This gives us 152 signed scholarship players these last 6 years.

 

They only give each school 85 at any time.

 

How was that NOT over-recruiting ?

 

We culled our recruits every year.  How else with 85 Scholarship limit did we sign 152 for 6 years now ?

 

Well ?

 

Silence is deafening.

 

 

Our recruiting class ranked # 13 today by Scout.com is about to go WAY UP folks !

 

Way up !

 

The Elite talent has taken notice !

 

They are buying-in.

 

Georgia is hot again !

 

We rate.

 

We are expected to do better than we have been these latest 8 years of meaningless bowl games.

 

Like this one.

 

It appears the FIRED predecessor here is waiting to announce his Assistant Football Coach until AFTER Bryan McClendon gets his one-game head coach on his resume.

 

Here are ALL the Top 65 football programs ranked by ESPN today as the Top 65 nationally at their recruiting situation :

 

http://espn.go.com/college-football/story/_/id/14312923/college-football-easiest-toughest-recruiting-jobs-1-65

 

Some jobs are cushy easy places to recruit.

 

We’re it !

 

# 1 UGA – we don’t steal kids from California, Texas, Ohio, Pennsylvania very often; but we are in the Bible Belt the Sunbelt where everyone either is or wants to be !  City of 7 million World Class City 58 miles away HUGE DRAW to THE ENTIRE WORLD !  We got one from up North there in the land of frozen tundra from New Jersey even.  And redshirted him so we saw him 2 years and handed him the ball 18 times a game in the Big Games and LOST.  We should get top players from up North for these reasons here in this post by me. We have appeal nationwide however and Charley Trippi came from Pennsylvania !

Get us back to NOT LOSING EVERY BIG GAME and getting blown-out 7 times after 2007 by more than 3 TD and will kick some ass !

Georgia was suffering from good guy syndrome and suffering from our fans of a FIRED coach trying to make his job such a cushy job they gave him.  I FIXED THAT !  The Elite prospects were stolen away, and did not buy-in on this there’s something besides winning that’s important here at Georgia

 

The hell there was !

 

Hello !

 

# 2 Ohio State – this is a good state for recruiting talent, very very good.  Not as good as Georgia, so they come here and steal our kids.

# 3 Texas – what is their deal anyway ?

# 4 Southern California – what is their deal too ?

# 5 LSU – the school absolutely sucks

# 6 Alabama – the school is not considered good school

# 7 Florida – they should be better than they are.  We give them HUGE ADVANTAGE playing OUR GAME every other year at THEIR home away from home and the site of the ANNUAL GATOR BOWL !

# 8 Florida State – is a stinky school and holds itself back therein and purposely joined the ACC from the Big East they made their name in beating up nobodies at both conferences ONLY.

# 9 Michigan

# 10 Oklahoma – is a stinky school and holds itself back therein.

# 11 Auburn – is a stinky school and holds itself back therein.

# 12 Texas A & M

# 13 Clemson – is a stinky school and holds itself back therein.

# 14 Notre Dame – great school Touchdown Jesus and no coach.  Used to be on top of the heap beating up service academies and Pac-12 Podunk teams and Big Ten Podunk teams. Then decided to be on their own an Independent.  Worst bowl record all-time of anyone.  Snooty fans think they’re God reincarnated. Not been competitive in my entire lifetime it seems now.  Yeah !  Still top school.  Still has tradition.  Still has seriously long-suffering fans.  In the rust belt with no talent.  Has to go elsewhere to recruit which is why they played games against all these teams all over the nation.  But, they kinda sorta wanted to join the ACC – but, whiffed.  Only play less than the required number of ACC teams to be considered in the ACC conference in football. Still the ACC sold-out to Notre Dame and give up its bowl game for the limited number of ACC opponents to Notre Dame !

# 15 UCLA

# 16 vols – no talent in-state

# 17 Miami of Florida Hurricanes – bad venue

# 18 Penn State

# 19 Oregon – no talent in-state too far away from the talent

# 20 Stanford – land of fruit and nuts with lots of talent bad venue no one cares top school though

# 21 Oklahoma State – no talent lots competition out of state to go to Texas and get it

# 22 TCU – plays in crappy-assed Big XII huge disadvantage brand name

# 23 Michigan State – considered second fiddle in-state forever too far from talent

# 24 Ole Miss – pretty ladies that’s a draw, nice campus too, talent not there

# 25 Arkansas – no talent in-state

 

The 40 teams after Arkansas are at such a disadvantage a coach there would quit for ANY of the other jobs that are easier to recruit to.

 

# 28 Mississippi State – when it did get talent they stole it from the state of Georgia bad facilities rescources

 

# 32 North Carolina – plays in inferior all cupcake conference of all small schools none who play football except Florida State who made its reputation getting South Georgia recruits and North Carolina sees itself as 2nd fiddle to FSU.  ACC small schools make the point that you only need 6 players to play basketball but football requires more like 18 top players every year to compete.  There are not 18 top football players every year in North Carolina and no tradition – not in football.  Still they missed the boat taking our FIRED guy.  He would’ve fit right in there.

 

# 34 South Carolina – well first they need to get rid of fighting animals as their mascot !  And, they have NEVER done squat at football.  South Carolina does have talent in-state but Clemson is perceived long-term as the better football program. Joining The SEC helps South Carolina a good bit.  With right coach can win with their talent in South Carolina but frankly too many disappointing recruiting classes to put themselves on the map.  Folks go there and are not impressed.  Joining The SEC should’ve and did help them but they need to have a bigger fan base committed to more than making noises and settling for 2nd fiddle.  And, the school sucks.

 

# 36 Missouri – it’s a 1000 miles from nowhere !  No talent there.  No way to get there.  Bad stadium.  Bad school. Poor fan base.  No reason for a prospect to want to go there, even if they had a coach for him to consider as a good coach.  Not competitive no matter what they do.  No hope.  Way North and Way West from any hope of getting a kid or parents to send them there.  Should however run up record on the abject failures in that vicinity.  This is their only claim to fame.

 

# 38 Nebraska – there was a time when they were on top of the heap.  They had coaches who were top coaches and got folks to there even more in the middle of nowhere than Missouri.  When that ended, they like Notre Dame who suffers from the same malady of used to be on top of the heap, dropped-off the face of the earth together.  No one wants to go to Nebraska.  50 years ago this was not true.  Folks did.  But, not for the sorry school or lousy location, but because they were WINNING !  This season, they beat not 1 single Power 5 Conference opponent with a winning record.  They do want to win !  That’s an advantage they had over us.  Here, there’s something besides Winning that’s important – or, so I am STILL TOLD today !

 

# 45 Georgie tek yellowjackets – There was a time when UGA did not have a stadium.  That lasted 4 decades.  We had to play our games for the 1st four decades of our football NOT HERE.  Georgie tek had the stadium – stinking old stadium they blew-up half of and still can not fill downtown in the slums of a city of 7 million. Had they SOLD all their campus downtown and moved North some a long time ago, they might have gotten some of the ladies in this state chalk full of beautiful ladies.  They could have built nice campus and nice stadium – considered then safe for Daddies to send their little girls to but they are too damn STUPID to have figured that out.  Land not worth what it was now.  Surrounded by slums.  Bad place.  All this talent and not a lady in the state going there.  Asian men yes.  They have the percentage of Asian men we do of ladies here at UGA.  Sad.  Really not done a damn thing after 1955 when they were in The SEC.

 

When The SEC got really good at football, Bobby Dodd could not compete for these reasons !  So, he went to the newspapers and told us all that The SEC Revenue Sharing was the problem.  Give lesser equal share. Had they stayed in The SEC, they would be getting $ 31 million 2015 and more next year !  So they give away 2 free cokes 2 free hot dogs parking pass and a bag of boiled peanuts and no one goes except Bulldogs fans who buy season tickets and throw them all away except one game.

 

Bobby Dodd was a college drop-out.  Names the Stadium for the fool !
