Scholarship Count for Kirby for 2017 since Kirby had his RB coach call Toniel Carter Junior and tell him he’s OUT of scholarships for early enrollment. I’ve been telling you THIS for a LONG TIME NOW on this blog. We are FULL. Tell me more about signing 29 ? Go ahead. Tell me MORE about the OTHER TARGETS Kirby has ? Go ahead. Seth Emerson cannot provide you a LIST of scholarship players but I can and HAVE ALL YEAR LONG on this blog keeping it constantly up-to-date. Kirby ALSO OWES several walk-ons a Scholarship. What his brother and legal guardian told you Kirby was YOU SHOULD HAVE CALLED HIS BROTHER AND HIM YOURSELF KIRBY. Kirby you also gave 3 walk-ons a scholarship and NOW can’t have the kid here in 2 weeks like he wanted to.

Full roster of 85 on-scholarship today.  16 seniors on-scholarship leave and 4 abdicated their scholarship which is then minus 20 but Mark Richt gave J.R. Reed a scholarship to transfer from Tulsa and he is sitting-out this year and gets a Scholarship too for 2017.

J.R. Reed Mark Richt gave scholarship to for 2017 and don’t forget Rodrigo Blankenship is not on scholarship.  85 minus 16 seniors is 69 minus 4 abdicating their scholarship is 65 plus J.R. Reed is 66 plus 19 commitments is 85 exactly at FULL 85 SCHOLARSHIPS.  If Aaron Davis does as he says and does not come back 2017 then Kirby has one scholarship available and Dominick Sanders said he is leaving so that is 2 scholarships available.

Chauncey Manac 2016 Redshirted Freshman 62


Rico Johnson medical disqualified doesn’t count as scholarship


I believe I recall Mark Richt provided a scholarship NEXT YEAR 2017 to J.R. Reed who had to sit-out this year.  This is a Scholarship committed for 2017 by Mark Richt. Sophomore.  6′ 195 db played Tulsa 2015. Dad Jake Reed NFL not J.R. Reed NFL db. 63


63 plus 19 commitments is 82 of the 85 scholarships and there are some walk-ons whom Kirby will HAVE TO provide a scholarship to too.  This assumes Aaron Davis leaves and Dominick Sanders said he too is thinking of leaving so that would be 62 on-scholarship plus 19 commitments for 81.


Walk-Ons :

Rodrigo Blankenship RF K still walk-on N. B.

Trent Frix Junior is still walk-on

Christian Payne Junior is still walk-on

Prather Hudson Freshman Redshirted 2016 Preferred Walk-on

Tim Hill Senior db Played this season

Mitchell Wasson F K still walk-on

William Ham Redshirt Sophomore K still walk-on played 3 games

Nick Moore Sophomore had tackle last year played 3 games 2016 walk-on still.

Steven Van Tiflin redshirt sophomore WR played one game 2016 walk-on.

Thomas Swilley Junior OG played one game 2015 one game 2016 walk-on.

I believe I recall we provided Keyon Brown Redshirt Sophomore 2016 a Scholarship and he has played in one game 2016.

I believe I recall we provided Mirko Jurkovic Redshirt Freshman 2016 a Scholarship but he has not played in 2016 and would appear to have loads in front of him at TE.

I believe I recall Mark Richt provided a scholarship 2016 to Joseph Ledbetter to get his younger brother to sign with us too but he is no longer playing with us this year so that is over.

Daniel Gothard Freshman on roster preferred walk-on still – has not played 2016.


85 – 4 on Scholarship abdicating is 81 – 16 seniors is 65 plus J.R. Reed is 66 for 2017 plus 19 commitments = 85 EXACTLY.  And if Dominick Sanders leaves 84.


I have no idea why anyone would want to TRY to confuse you about scholarships available when discussing recruiting.  There only is one number.  That is 85.  You either have no scholarship available for recruiting or you do.


I can understand why Kirby would want to confuse the issue.  And make no mistake about it this IS THE ISSUE.


Seth Emerson SAYS HE HAS A LIST but he is the ONLY sportswriter to TRY to write about where we are on Scholarships today whom it is we lose and whom it is we don’t lose and then ALL THE BLOGS brag on Kirby’s recruiting with 19 commitments THE OTHER BLOGS stating THEY THINK Kirby will sign 29.


There would have to be A LOT OF attrition between now and signing 29.  I can tell you that just as plainly as I can


LIST THE 85 SCHOLARSHIPS for you by name and class.


And I can and have told you who the top 50 of of this running list I keep here are on my blog of scholarships because it is MY PREMISE that you can’t talk about recruiting WITHOUT KNOWING what your scholarships are of the one single limit of 85 at any one time of which today WE ARE FULL all 85.


Seth Emerson why can’t you LIST the 85 scholarships for Georgia as our beat writer ?


I certainly did the research which sparked your article yesterday on the topic and the article you wrote before that too on this.


But you cannot list the on-scholarship players for Georgia ?


Why not Seth Emerson ?


I certainly CAN.


For MANY YEARS all we had to do was to go to a site at Rivals and look-up who was on-scholarship and who wasn’t.  True the list every year was wrong but it listed the players BY NAME SETH EMERSON so you could easily ferret-out the current true list.


In other words Seth Rivals all these years prior kept a running list of on-scholarship at Georgia by class.  I looked at it 100 times a season every season.  They kept their list up-to-date.  Who cares if it has an error on it when it LISTS THE ON-SCHOLARSHIP at Georgia by NAME ?  For all these years Seth we all have been able to look at the Rivals’ List and easily know that this guy changed status.


Now there is NO ONE with a running list EXCEPT FOR ME.


By my count Kirby can sign 22 and has 19 commitments including one signed.  So Kirby can sign 3 more new commitments and I think Kirby had therefore an early enrollee spot for Toniel Carter.  So my read on this is that Kirby did NOT WANT Toniel Carter.  Therefore you can add this to the list of the top 2 dozen biggest blunders by Kirby his first season coaching anywhere.  It stands at 25 blunders Kirby 2016 with more time remaining for another.


Kirby dropped from # 2 recruiting class to # 5 by his treatment of Toniel Carter who clearly wanted to be here January 6 early enrollee.  And Kirby gave Tom Herman a huge big boost in his new job and made Texas a better team.


This will be used against Kirby in RECRUITING his entire tenure at Georgia.  This is TYPICAL of the manner Kirby treats folks.  You have seen it ALL YEAR on ALL HIS PLAYERS.  Texas is a huge fertile recruiting ground.  If we can’t recruit in Texas over this this will be even bigger than Kirby not wanting the guy after HE TOLD THE KID HE DID.  This is what is being said and although Kirby said he didn’t have an early enrollee spot Kirby certainly does and could have if he wanted to.  So he didn’t want him AFTER he told the kid he did.  I did Kirby.  I would have had Toniel Carter as one of your elusive you can never figure-out and are trying to find your top 50 players for 2017 season Kirby.


Kirby I don’t give a shit what you do just don’t lie to ME.  Don’t hide behind the I can’t talk about it and then talk about it and LIE.  You didn’t want him once Nick Chubb and Sony Michel said they both are coming-back because you MISTREATED BOTH OF THEM ALL YEAR Kirby so they have unfinished business.  You would not have played Toniel Carter Kirby this season.  You will RUE this decision Kirby.  You just don’t care what people think.  Well this ONE is going to REALLY HURT you the rest of your LIFE in recruiting and Toniel Carter has already shown more class than you Kirby and so too did his brother and legal guardian.


Cut off your nose to spite your face.


Again Kirby.


I would love to hear what Dell McGee has to say on this.  And knowing Dell McGee I will.


Kirby just shot himself in the foot.

  1. I really appreciate you keeping this running list. A few questions, as I am a crootin noob. Do the seniors (who no longer have eligibility but remain enrolled in school and on scholarship during the spring semester) still count toward the 85-schollie cap? That is my understanding from the rules. If so, if you had 85 during the season, you could only have as many new scholarship guys in the spring (early enrollees/transfers-in) as there were early exits (abdications/transfers-out/underclassmen entering draft). By your count, it looks like we have 5 or 6 early exits (S. Wilson, J. Briscoe, R. McGraw, K. Choates, A. Davis, and maybe D. Sanders). By my count, we already have 5 new guys coming on scholarship starting in spring semester:

    J.R. Reed
    D’Marcus Hayes
    Richard LeCounte
    Jake Fromm
    Jeremiah Hollomon

    The talk I have heard is that we are hoping Deangelo Gibbs also enrolls early. We would only have room for Gibbs if Sanders does in fact leave. Also, if Sanders leaves, we have an even more immediate need for a DB like Gibbs, rather than another RB like Carter with Chubb and Michel coming back. Sounds to me like Kirby was as surprised as the rest of Bulldawg Nation that Chubb decided to come back. He was banking on giving Chubb’s spot under the spring semester 85-player cap to Carter. If it is true that Kirby told Carter he could come in June, then it truly was Carter’s decision to decommit because he is hellbent on early enrolling somewhere. Not faulting him for that, but I don’t really feel bad for him either. UT under Herman is some consolation prize.

    If I am wrong about any of this, please let me know. If not, you can’t really fault Kirby for the decision to pull the offer of early enrollment for Carter. I hate the fact that Kirby didn’t talk to Carter and his brother personally though.

    Also, is this story about Trent Frix receiving a schollie incorrect?

    Great work! Please keep it up.

    Liked by 1 person

    1. tludlam thank you for your reply. I liked it.

      I am with you on Toniel Carter Junior and his brother and legal guardian deserved at least a phone call from Kirby who promised him since he was graduating December 18 that he could come here on January 6.

      If you look back in my blog you will see at one time I had SEVERAL of these now listed under walk-ons as on-scholarship. Yes I read the among others not listed at Dawgbone and remembered that SEVERAL of these “walk-ons” were GIVEN a scholarship.

      But Seth Emerson whom I trust said that Trent Frix is NOT ON SCHOLARSHIP. So I updated my list back to Seth Emerson to call for him to publish HIS LIST.

      I have searched the Internet high and low to find a LIST of on-scholarship for our beloved Bulldogs and no one has one except for me.

      I am not so concerned tludlam about how many are leaving or forced-out in the next few days as I am about Kirby giving 3 walk-ons a full scholarship and now Kirby going-back on HIS WORD to a recruit from the talent-rich state of Texas where we get significant players from.

      Indeed your URL Link tludlam is to the article I read saying that Trent Frix Tommy Long and Kenneth Towns were awarded a scholarship from their walk-on status at the time August 2016. So Kirby when he made the commitment to Toniel Carter Junior for a scholarship as early enrollee January 6 knew that he was TIGHT on early enrollee slots. We were FULL at 85 scholarships.

      We are now.

      They go away as seniors if they give-up their scholarship but I don’t see where Kirby said that any of the 3 had to after this semester is over. That it was just for that one Semester just ended that he got all the free press that he gave 3 scholarships to 3 walk-ons in August 2016. I would have told them I need the scholarship for early enrollees January 6 so this is just a one-semester scholarship.

      If you look at my list I list more whom I ALSO read were given a scholarship. I spell each one out as best I can.

      I don’t consider Tommy Long or Trent Frix or Kenneth Towns one of Kirby’s Top 50 players he says he is always TRYING TO FIND.

      I certainly DO consider Toniel Carter Junior one of Kirby’s Top 50 players for 2017 if he had not had his RB coach call and tell the kid that the kid could NOT be in classes January here as KIRBY PROMISED Toniel Carter Junior AND his brother who is his legal guardian.

      Kirby mistreats his players. It is what he does.

      I am a Southerner. I grew-up here and have these morals. You only get to screw me once. New Yorkers would say that is once too many but WE TRUST YOU WHEN YOU SAY YOUR WORD. They do not. If you get to know New Yorkers really well in their tight-knit groups in their neighborhood then you would know that they too are like Southerners on this point amongst themselves. They just mistrust EVERYBODY else unless they are in their tight-knit groups in their neighborhood. Southerners are not that way. We WELCOME YOU with open arms.

      That is who I am.

      Kirby is on my shit list.

      He is not a man of his word. Every recruit in The United States of America and ESPECIALLY EVERY SINGLE ONE in the ENTIRE STATE OF TEXAS knows that Kirby is NOT A MAN OF HIS WORD.

      I tend to firmly believe that THAT is ALL we have tludlam.

      There isn’t anything else.

      From what I have witnessed up close and personal Kirby has NO IDEA who his top 50 players are and makes NO EFFORT to make such a list just allude to the fact that that in fact is what he is TRYING TO FIND.

      I have no problem whatsoever knowing who our Top 50 players are and that Toniel Carter Junior is ONE.

      Hells bells Kirby has no damn clue because he HATES ON FRESHMEN and thinks 2016 is 1959 when the freshmen were not allowed to play.

      It is INEXCUSABLE what has gone on with our OFFENSE all year this year from January 12 when Kirby got here refusing to give ANY SNAPS WITH THE # 1 UNIT TO Jacob Eason even.

      Jesus Christ.

      Kirby would NEVER have played Toniel Carter Junior much next year if at all saying he had to learn.

      We witnessed 102 other coaches do a BETTER JOB THAN KIRBY 2016 in identifying freshmen after 4 or 5 practices and getting them the snaps with the # 1 unit to get them ready.

      Kirby has NO EXPERIENCE at offense except that Mark Richt gave him one year 2005 as his RB coach.

      Kirby does not recognize a Quarterback or a Running Back as even one of his top 50 players and he will do the same damn thing 2017 as he DEMONSTRATED 2016.

      He had the # 8 talent averaging the recruiting classes making-up this team the last 5 years with redshirts and to-date is # 69 in the nation WITH THEM.

      Nick Saban did NOT prepare Kirby.

      He is NOT READY.

      This yet BLUNDER # 25 of 2016 with more time left for MORE.
