“This was…a three-hour commercial in the heart of Atlanta for Michigan football.” Jeff Sentell DawgNation staff AJ-C who knows just a little bit about RECRUITING and even more so about RECRUITING in ATLANTA.
Jimmy Smith Cedar Grove High School Head Coach : “The jury is still out with the NCAA on these things”
Let’s go hold a Georgia Bulldogs’ one in DETROIT and see if their REAL FOOTBALL PLAYERS don’t actually show-up there to have Kirby give them an OFFER to come down here where it is nice weather year round in the Bible Belt in the Sun Belt where EVERY football player WANTS to play – especially if they are FROM DETROIT in the frozen tundra.
It does NOT sound like Jim Harbaugh did a very good job at ALL of getting PROSPECTS to show-up or indeed if he made ANY effort to do so. This is a SHAM. 725 miles due North on I-75 and he has his ENTIRE staff at a high school teaching the kids at CAMP to work hard but MAKES NO EFFORT to get the 1st real prospect for Michigan there.
Uh no Kirby is not that damn stupid to do YOUR WORK FOR YOU Jim Harbaugh and have them THERE.
Is that what you thought ?
Milwaukee is half that distance from Detroit around the Lake at Chicago and it would make NO MORE SENSE there than it does here.
And I still say the NCAA EXISTING RULES prohibit training during SPRING BREAK and especially when they would have to drive 14 hours one-way to get to Atlanta from Detroit – that those hours would be by existing NCAA rules used during driving time as PART of the hours in PRACTICE.
What I still say is that which Cedar Grove High School Head Coach Jimmy Smith said : “The Jury is still out with the NCAA on these things.”
I read your blog Jeff Sentell and think you are a smart guy. I think you call it like it is. I think that gives you credibility. Not doing the same is certainly not gaining credibility however tied-to the old regime here any writer might be. Mark Richt was NOT fired because he punished harshly but because he was # 45 at beating Top 15 teams his last entire 8 years here of 18 losses in 24 such games time of game.
He was a NO SHOW in such games.
That and his 12 losses to unranked teams time of game or for the season AP or Coaches’ Polls the same last entire 8 years of his FAILED regime.
There was no meme that there was in fact “something here at Georgia besides winning that is MORE IMPORTANT” despite his claims to doing it the right way.
He was abject failure on the field of play for 8 years and that too long. Yes I ran him out of town on a rail ON THIS BLOG for it. If Kirby can not do at least that well or better he can move along too.
Michigan football certainly is NO BETTER.
A guy with a bad heart whose coaching record is NOT that good at 68-30 and Jim Harbaugh also has a DUI. I mean we just fired a guy who over his last 8 years here was 73-32 and Jim Harbaugh is 68-30.
That is no redemption of Mark Richt nor of Jim Harbaugh.
