We’re a solid football program number 11 all-time in wins and number 3 all-time in bowl wins. We have a state with a city 59 miles away with 7 million people a world-class city made-up of as fine a group of high school football as there is. We have no competition in-state and plenty out-of-state for what is generally considered the number 3 state for recruits. Our fan base is as active and engaged as any in the nation. We haven’t really added-on to our football stadium while others with less going for them have.
We have many blogs.
We have a fantastic university with a ranking of number 51 which goes up every year better and better. To listen to the other school downtown who is number 36 one might get the impression otherwise. U.S. News and World Report ranks us as one of the very best in the nation as a school. Other football programs who are doing well in football do not have our education we offer them here.
Our campus is so beautiful and the belles gracing our campus are hot. We have a lot more ladies than other schools. Our women sports teams are very good as a result.
Our environment is ranked the number one college football town and we enjoy the number one mascot in all of sports as well.
We buy merchandise for our team. Only 5 schools have more merchandise purchased.
Forbes magazine ranks us as the number 2 most revenue from our football program in the nation.
We have the number 5 most NFL Draft Picks of all colleges.
Only ten schools have more Academic All-Americans than we do.
We have been ranked the number one Party School in the nation many times and always are listed at the very top.
Twenty-six different seasons we have won eighty percent of our football games.
We’re good. We’re very good.
Thirty-nine Bulldogs have lifted the NFL Super Bowl Trophy as Champions.
We have four former players who have been named MVP of the NFL Championship Game currently called the Super Bowl Champion MVP.
We have four who have been drafted number one overall in the NFL Draft.
We compete in The SEC and are a Charter Member. We’re one win away from having the second most SEC Championships in football.
The SEC itself is winning ten of the latest thirteen national championships with only three other teams from three different conferences having won one each. We are a lock to win our eleventh in fourteen years now.
Forty-three percent of the Top twenty-one college football teams in wins all-time competed in The SEC.
We have remained the target of envy of all of college football as the preeminent conference in college football.
The SEC remains the most valuable football conference.
Our city of seven million represents the hottest hotbed of college football fans in the world.
We do have six national championships in football. It’s been a long while. We have taken grief over that but what they do not challenge is that we have better talent than having zero All-SEC players this latest season.
We have the lead in college football’s Deep South’s Oldest Rivalry.
Our former players are and have been coaches and sports commentators nationally.
Our football program has been ranked the number six most valuable in the nation.
We had ninety-three thousand at our latest G-Day Spring Practice Football Game.
We have had seventeen seasons of zero or one loss.
We are not on NCAA Probation in football like that school downtown Atlanta is today and we have not been for many years.
A new gymnasium seems to be our next project here.
Starting 1990 we have won six games against our number one Rival in the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party.
Twenty-seven games six wins.
Our recruiting class is shaping-up as maybe number three best nationally for 2017. It’s arguably the most talented group coming-in we’ve ever assembled.
We could use the revenue from playing Florida every other year here to expand our stadium and our home game schedule has suffered with poor opponents for us to watch here in one of the nation’s best venues.
It could not possibly hurt our chances against Florida to play them here every other year.
As long as we play second fiddle to Florida we will not achieve much.
Our new coach could go 8-5 in his first season.
We’re short on talent.
We knew coming-in we were short on talent this season.
Other coaches have done a better job of highlighting their freshmen this year.
We’re a team this year who really did not excel at anything causing us to have lost to teams we shouldn’t have while beating North Carolina and Auburn as our two best wins.
We have a full complement of eight-five scholarship players and stand to lose some to the NFL.
We were slow on the uptake to get our freshmen out there practicing with the number one unit and these guys plus the ones coming-in frankly are our best opportunity to improve ourselves.
My Christmas wish this year is that Kirby does evaluate his best freshmen from this season and the best freshmen coming-in next year and get them out there with the number one unit from our first practice. This is how we can achieve more of our potential. We can’t stand pat with guys who have not stood-out. I know we’d all like to do better.
