2006 Class did NOT compare to this 2017 class at ALL. With 15 top 100 players in Scout.com ESPN RecruitingNation.com or 247Sports.com 2017 the 2006 class only had 6. Less than half and was ranked # 4 class because Mark Richt signed 27. Of the 27 only 13 were 4 or 5 star and 12 were 3 or 2 star. It was NOT LIKE THIS 2017 class now was it ? How are 6 top 100 in 2006 like THIS 15 top 100 in 2017 ? Why write a post today saying that ?

# 4 Class 2006 URL Link :

 

http://www.scout.com/a.z?s=73&p=9&c=14&yr=2006

 

You get ranked higher when you over-sign as 2007 even with 13 of the players 3-star or 2-star as you see at the above URL Link herein provided.

 

How in the world does that 2006 class with 6 top 100 compare to this 2017 with 15 who are top 100 ?

 

Have to be a Mark Richt Apologist to state 2006 was just as good a class as THIS 2017 class.

 

Not at all equals.  Are they ?

 

The devil is in the details.  Frankly the 2006 class played here 2006 2007 2008 2009 and redshirt seniors of the 2006 class played 2010 when THEY WENT 6-7 on the season.

 

It was God-awful back then.

 

The list of players makes your stomach turn 2006 class.

 

Don’t click on this list of nobodies 2006.  You don’t want to know who they were.  Trust me.

 

I remember every one and what they did here which was diddle-e-squat 2006 to 2010.

 

It was awful football as you can tell by reading just their names and thinking about those guys 2006 signing with Mark Richt.

 

Here is the detailed list URL Link of who Mark Richt signed 2006 :

A program’s recruiting class is ranked and is measured by the number of three star recruits they have. The more they have the worse the class is. Miami of Florida has 13 of their 21 or 62 %. We know there are BETTER PLAYERS than 62 % he went after. Of the top 100 he has only 2. That is what he did here. Good players can MAKE a good coach. Bad players can make a bad coach. A bad coach can recruit poorly. A good coach can’t because that is a definition of what can make a good coach. An analysis of how Mark Richt got fired at Georgia. Kirby Smart is a more likable football coach than Mark Richt to the kids themselves. Our 125th Anniversary and THIS our # 1 class ever 15 top 100 OVERALL in at least 1 of the 3 major recruiting services. I know what THIS means. Seth Emerson says Mark Richt’s DREAM TEAM was pretty good. No it was NOT – not by ANY stretch of the imagination. Please do not compare THIS historic class to that joke of a class.

You can MEASURE how good a class a team got Wednesday by the number of 3-Star recruits they got.  The MORE they got then the worse the class is for that coach.  DESPERATE coaches fill-up their scholarships with 3-Star recruits.  Now sometimes a 3-Star is right there at the very top of the 3-Stars and that is where I caution you to look at their rank at their position.

 

If 13 of your 21 recruits are ranked 25 or 34 or 46 or 53 or 68 or 75 or 132 at their position then your average ranking of 62 % of what you signed Wednesday average the # 60 player at their position.  60 other teams signed better players than you did at 62 % of your positions.

 

You ONLY get 85 Scholarships.

 

If you are DESPERATE and fill your Scholarships with 62 % of them the # 60 player at their position then 60 other teams have increased their percentage of better players on Scholarship there than you have 62 % of the time.

 

This remains a problem for Mark Richt.

 

The higher ranked a recruit is then the higher the probability the player will do better than one worse ranked than he is.

 

If you don’t get this precept you will NEVER get recruiting.

 

I see folks who get all pessimistic and cynical about recruiting and typically those folks make 3 statements :

  1. I don’t follow recruiting.
  2. Recruits change their minds.
  3. I know of this 3-Star recruit who was an NFL Draft Pick and good player (ranked # 7 at his position in the nation but a 3-Star nonetheless.)

 

They just don’t understand recruiting.  Those 3 statements do not mean a thing.  Not one of those 3 statements has any meaning whatsoever.  You either can recruit or you can not.  You can be taught how to recruit.  Or you can be a natural at it.

 

Recruiting is the lifeblood of any program and it can make or break a coach.  That’s right.  A poor coach can be judged a good one ONLY because he recruits better than the coach who knows more about coaching but goes after and signs the marginal players who just don’t make it as often as the ones who are judged to be the better players by folks who are paid millions upon millions of dollars to rank them.

 

That’s why rankings matter.

 

Mark Richt bragged himself that what HE termed his DREAM TEAM was his best class he recruited here but the truth of the matter is that the last remnants of his DREAM TEAM left his last year here a year in which he was fired for their performance on the field and it included 22 who left 2015 with Mark Richt.  The 22 who left Mark Richt’s last season were ALL 22 STARTERS here for Mark Richt and included Kolton Houston who – since he was here 6 years during which time Mark Richt lost 24 games – Mark Richt averaged 4 losses a season with those 22 who left with Mark Richt his last season here 2015 the last remnants of the Dream Team.

 

Did you hear me Seth Emerson ?

 

Mark Richt’s dream team since it included Kolton Houston as the 22 starters Mark Richt lost after his 2015 fired season averaged 4 losses a year for their 6 years here.  24 losses 6 years.

 

That is good Seth Emerson ?

 

No it is NOT.

 

Seth Emerson says this morning that was a pretty good class.

 

That’s not pretty good Seth.  That sucks.

 

It was anything but.

 

Of course Mark Richt averaged 4 losses a season his last 8 seasons here as well 73-32.  So his DREAM TEAM was NO BETTER than the rest.  Was it ?  If Kirby’s class 2017 does that here Kirby will be FIRED too, not lauded by Seth Emerson on our 125th Anniversary as “pretty good” Seth.

 

Forty Percent 59 of the 146 Signed Scholarship Recruits by Mark Richt his last 6 seasons here were either kicked-off the team failed to qualify flunked-out never showed-up or quit which got us in such a mess that we did NOT have what we needed.

 

Seth Emerson says that class was 24 signed scholarship recruits by Mark Richt in his DREAM TEAM but does not list them.  There were in fact 26 Seth.  10 of the 26 did not finish their career here at Georgia because they either were kicked-off the team by Mark Richt failed to qualify flunked-out never showed-up or quit which got us in such a mess that we did NOT have what we needed Mark Richt’s average of 40% just gone his last 6 seasons here of the Mark Richt era.

Here is that URL to what Mark Richt recruited in his cough cough DREAM TEAM :

http://recruiting.scout.com/a.z?s=73&p=9&c=8&toinid=740&yr=2011

 

 

It was NOT 24 Seth.  26.

 

Please do not compare THAT crappy class to this HISTORIC CLASS by stark contrast.

 

I take exception therefore that that was a pretty good class.  They did not do jack here at Georgia except to get Mark Richt fired.  Several of the more prominent players Seth brags on this morning were kicked-off this team and played for someone else not Georgia.

 

Pretty good Seth Mark Richt’s DREAM TEAM ?

 

Excuse me ?

 

https://www.dawgnation.com/football/georgia-verge-signing-new-dream-team-original-one-pretty-good

 

No it was NOT PRETTY GOOD Seth Emerson sir.

 

12 of the 26 over forty-six percent were 3-star recruits or worse which is nearly half of Mark Richt’s DREAM TEAM.  Only 1 of those players did jack here and he went undrafted in the NFL.

 

Mark Richt is counterproductive in his recruiting and always has been.  He overinflated his rankings his last 6 years here at UGA by over-signing EVERY YEAR and then finding 59 of his last 146 forty percent were either kicked-off the team failed to qualify flunked-out never showed-up or quit.  He signed marginal players and had to resign every year MORE to replace them and they were 40 % kicked-off the team failed to qualify flunked-out never showed-up or quit too from 2010 through 2015 inclusive all 6 years at the end of the Mark Richt era at Georgia.  And was fired for it.

 

Mark Richt lost his job because his choice was Greyson Lambert who categorically refused to TRY to throw the ball down the field in fear he might throw an interception and lose his job over it he thought.  Then when this halting quarterback after his halting QB choice Hutson Mason the previous year became apparent to Mark Richt he turned instead to a running back at QB whom Mark Richt had not given a single solitary snap at QB all season long against his # 1 Rival in his FATAL and 8th game of his FINAL SEASON here.  DESPERATE.  Desperate because he did NOT recruit as well here as Kirby Kirby’s first 2 classes already compared to Mark Richt there at Miami of Florida or here at Georgia. He didn’t call running plays for him either nor pull him after 4 interceptions as well but his FATAL FLAW was that at the most dynamic position at ANY college or NFL he had THESE CHOICES.

 

Got it ?

 

Of course you can have a great dynamic QB and NO ONE around him out there to block or catch and 2 injured running backs and a poorly prepared head coach and pitiful offensive coordinator and the QB will not be judged to be great any more than the coach will be.  I am NOT making excuses for Kirby.  I am stating FACTS.

 

When you look at the recruiting rankings Wednesday do NOT look at where the class is ranked but instead look at how many 3-Star recruits they got AND THEN LOOK at where each player is ranked at HIS POSITION in the nation.

 

If 62 % of them are the # 60 player in the nation at their position this is a POOR RECRUITING CLASS no matter where the class is ranked.

 

Where a team is RANKED as a TEAM is based on points.  You get MORE POINTS for EVERY recruit signed.  So if you over-sign and 62 % of them are # 60 at their position nationally then the team is made-up of marginal players.  60 other teams have BETTER PLAYERS than he does 62 % of the time.  That’s not good and are seeds for issues on the down the line with 62 % of them.  THAT is a failed model.

 

http://247sports.com/Season/2017-Football/CompositeTeamRankings

 

Here is that URL link to Mark Richt’s recruiting class 2017 :

 

http://miami.247sports.com/Season/2017-Football/Commits

 

That sucks like the 2011 class Mark Richt signed here because it is TOO heavy on 3-Star recruits and not enough STARS.

 

I’d rather have a coach who knows how to coach but if I have to choose between two neither who know how to coach I will take the one who recruits better because HE can be a BETTER COACH just simply by signing better players.

 

And if I have to take an OLD COACH who doesn’t know what he is doing coaching or a young one I will take the young one because he MIGHT learn how to coach while the old one has already proven that he can’t.

 

This is where I stand on Wednesday’s news that Kirby Smart has recruited the nation’s # 3 recruiting class made-up of 15 players judged to be top 100 players OVERALL in the nation in at least 1 of the 3 top recruiting services Scout.com 247Sports.com or ESPN RecruitingNation.com of the 3300 who will sign scholarships to 1-A FBS teams Wednesday and The University of Georgia’s # 1 recruiting class of ALL-TIME with 15 top players whom I hope to see Fall Practice practicing at least some with the # 1 unit ALL FALL.

 

This is NOT 15 in the top 100 at THEIR POSITION nationally but that of the 3300 signing Wednesday with FBS 1-A teams of which there are 130 teams Kirby just got us 15 of the top 100 of the 3300.

 

Got it ?

 

Kirby Smart is a more likable football coach than Mark Richt to the kids themselves.

 

Kirby absorbed how to recruit.  Is it the most important judge of being a good coach in college football ?  It certainly is one way a coach can be judged to be a good coach.  He can have better players and be judged a good coach as a result thereof by itself.

 

If you can keep this in mind Wednesday National Signing Day 2017 then you will be able sit back and have perspective about all this news Wednesday.

 

It does NOT mean that I will not be continuing to urge Kirby to LEARN how to coach such as GETTING HIS 15 top 100 players in one of the 3 major recruiting services – our stars therefore – out there ALL FALL this Fall practicing at least some with the # 1 unit.

 

It’s quite a feat Kirby has accomplished Wednesday.  We’ve played football at the rate of # 11 best in the nation for our 125th Anniversary this season at Georgia and THIS our # 1 recruiting class ever of all 125 seasons.  You look at it how ever you want : I know what this means.   125th Anniversary I RECOGNIZED THIS FIRST.

Kirby is # 44 in the nation 2016 results with the # 7 Average Scout.com Recruiting Rankings for the latest 5 years which with redshirt made-up Kirby’s 2016 team. True Kirby faced the facts that Mark Richt had Forty Percent 59 of the 146 Signed Scholarship Recruits 40% Mark Richt signed here his last 6 years here who were JUST GONE before Kirby got here because they were either kicked-off quit failed to qualify never showed-up or flunked-out. We as a school STILL are the # 44 team in the nation 2016 with the average # 7 Scout.com Recruiting Rankings making-up this FAILED 2016 UGA Bulldogs’ Football team here at Georgia. The day after tomorrow Wednesday on ESPNU 883 Maria Taylor reporting Kirby will ADD to this with the # 1 UGA Bulldogs’ Recruiting Class of All-Time here at Georgia with Fifteen (15) players documented here as ranked in the Top 100 OVERALL of 3300 total in at least one of the top 3 recruiting services 247Sports ESPN RecruitingNation and Scout.com when there are 3300 joining the 130 FBS teams for 2017 alone. Can Kirby do better than # 44 nationally on the field for this 2017 season ? Well what caused the # 44 nationally for 2016 for Kirby with all this talent HERE SUPPOSEDLY ? Was it that he HELD-BACK freshmen 2016 ? Will he AGAIN 2017 with these recruits he is adding the day after tomorrow ? Will Kirby drag his feet now 2017 with these FRESHMEN these 15 top 100 players in the nation 2017 in at least 1 of the 3 top recruiting services ? Will Kirby kicking-and-screaming categorically refuse to let them practice with the # 1 unit and then be forced to tell them to go ahead and Start ANYWAY as STARS of this football program ? Well ? Will he ?

Kirby # 44 for 2016 season with average # 7 Scout.com Recruiting Rankings for the 5 years with redshirt making up Kirby’s 2016 Georgia Bulldogs’ team :

I am not ignoring New England Patriots offense with Tom Brady against Atlanta Falcons defense what I am saying is that Tom Brady should NOT have been allowed to play in the Super Bowl.

We have a new owner Arthur Blank who is TRYING to win never mind that we’re thirsty that we have one win in 168 combined NFL MLB and NHL seasons here in Atlanta.

 

We have 7 million folks in this city of Atlanta more than Boston has.

 

What I want to know is what if Tom Brady is NOT all that better than Matt Ryan ?  Will you come back and cease with the where were you when the Falcons were no good and when the Braves were no good and when the Flames/Thrashers were no good ?

 

We were here.

 

I was here.

 

I have gone to these games.  We have good attendance to the games and I had seasons’ tickets to the Falcons games too for a long long long time.  I do not currently have seasons’ tickets to the Falcons.  How many of the 7 million here do ?

 

THAT is NOT the measure of the fan.

 

I would LOVE to see the Falcons beat New England Patriots and Tom Brady and Bill Belichick.

 

You know why ?

 

Because the Patriots were not any better than the Falcons when their owner with a HISTORY of REPEATED CHEATING including Bill Belicheck and Tom Brady bought the team.

 

Arthur Blank bought us the MOST EXPENSIVE STADIUM any sport in the world EVER here in Atlanta.

 

This is a LOT better stadium here in Atlanta than this Super Bowl Houston stadium and better than the stadium Gillette Stadium is located in Foxborough Massachusetts.

 

Matt Ryan can be 4-4 in NFL Play-Offs.

 

QB Tom Brady owner Bob Kraft and coach Bill Belichick can lose to yet again another team whose QB is not significantly worse than Tom Brady as in his 4 Super Bowl wins.

 

We have a real chance to win and you know it.

 

6th time the Super Bowl has pitted the # 1 scoring offense against the # 1 scoring defense but the question is is Tom Brady significantly better than Matt Ryan ?

 

No.

 

Atlanta fans are good fans.

 

We are the # 1 college football town in the nation and have been for a long time.

 

This is why we have the Super Bowl here have the Olympics here have the NC Game in College Football here have the NC game in NCAA Men’s Basketball Final 4 Big Dance here why we have the NBA All-Star Game here.  Because WE are BETTER fans than New England BOSTON.

 

Want to see US rally behind OUR TEAM ?

 

Watch and see.

 

Read it and weep.

 

Where were YOU when the New England Patriots owned by Bob Kraft coached by Bill Belichick and quarterbacked by Tom Brady were CHEATING ?

 

Trying to IGNORE that ?

 

Tom Brady should NOT have been allowed to PLAY in this Super Bowl indeed ever any NFL game.

 

Kick Pete Rose out of baseball and let Tom Brady play the Falcons in the Super Bowl in the very season in which he was FOUND GUILTY and ADMITTED IT and suspended just 4 games THIS SEASON for his patently systemic and systematic CHEATING.

 

1 win in 168 combined seasons of Falcons Braves Hawks and Flames/Thrashers.

 

We’re due.

 

And THEY were caught red-handed and do NOT therefore deserve to win.

 

They’re due to pay the piper.

 

We STOLE the Braves from you and left you with that cheesy little green stadium with green wall looking like a building outside and only 29 thousand inside.

 

Where were YOU when all this cheating was going-on ?

 

Living in the jungle up there in Boston with round intersections racial hatred frozen tundra nobody wants to live in CHEATING and blue laws against prancing across a dance floor on Sunday.

Jacob Eason given A+ by ESPN today and well wishes for a great 2017 and 2018 at Georgia before top NFL Draft Pick after the 2018 season.

Georgia Men’s Hoops beats Texas again and with THAT The SEC ties the Big 12 in SEC/Big 12 Challenge 5 wins each.

 

Georgia 59

Texas 57

 

2017 SEC/Big 12 Challenge tied this season at 5-5 so we’ve never beat the Big 12.

 

This brings UGA to 13-8 on the season and with just 4-4 in The SEC this season is going nowhere at this point.  We have two (2) players Yante Maten a Junior this year and gone after the season is J.J. Frazier a senior.

 

UGA Women’s basketball ALSO suffered in recruiting 2016 and ALSO has not enough real players.  2017 the women will have a good team again finally.  The women play this afternoon Sunday but the season was over before it began with not enough top players like the men suffer from as well.

 

This lack of recruiting at UGA in a SPORT is caused by the gym or lack of one Stegesaurus which is NOT COMPETITIVE an eye-sore and a huge damper on the sport of basketball for The University of Georgia.

 

Our gym holds back both the women and the men.

 

These are just two (2) MORE sports Greg McGarity sucks at and has his ENTIRE tenure hired here by Mike Adam$ as HIS puppet with no head coaching experience to run The University of Georgia ATHLETIC DEPARTMENT unless you consider 1 year girl’s tennis coach an Athletics’ Director.

 

At UGA I do NOT consider that or Damon Evans whom Mike Adam$ also hired as AD here Athletics’ Directors obviously.  Their records speak for themselves.

 

All Greg McGarity wants to do is to MAKE MONEY and sit on it the same as Damon Evans.  This then is prototypical Mike Adam$’ puppet.  Make millions of dollars DONATIONS to The University of Georgia.  Bullshit.  The University of Georgia has a one and a half BILLION dollar budget and our sports’ teams SUCK.

 

The RPI for the men is # 58.

 

http://www.realtimerpi.com/college_Men_basketball_rpi2.html

 

And Texas’ RPI was # 125.  So that was not going to help anyway.  Not that there is any help for 2-man team.

 

http://www.realtimerpi.com/rpi_356_Men.html

 

The women have an RPI of # 107.

 

http://www.realtimerpi.com/rpi_356_Women.html

 

We don’t have a man or a woman who can bring the ball up the court and neither team can shoot or play defense.  We suck.

 

You needed me to tell you this ?

“So it turns out Mark Richt is trying to do a solid for both himself and his former employer there which of course is awesome.” senator of NOTHING bluto gtp get the picture just now he calls “The return of Evil Richt” about an article at the AJ-C from 11 hours prior. Was he drunk asleep all that time that only now he misreads it ? Still is ?

https://www.seccountry.com/florida/florida-gators-football-recruiting-violation-ncaa?utm_campaign=SF_Carvell_AJC&utm_source=Twitter&utm_medium=Social

 

bluto can NOT honestly think as he said he thinks this morning that THIS is some greatness of Mark Richt to ACT upon what bluto says is a FALSE rumor and that by THAT ACT of contacting the Florida Gator recruits that he is doing something NOBLE for Miami of Florida Hurricanes because of the FALSE RUMOR.

Or doing UGA a favor by such a sleazy contact of Florida Gator recruits.

 

I honestly believe bluto thinks Mark Richt sent the texts to the recruits that the rumor was false.

 

He writes ALL his posts when he is passed-out drunk.

 

Jesus Christ bluto is a dumbass and right there tied with him is Mark Richt.

 

And oh by the way THIS CONFIRMS once again 14 months after I FIRED HIM ON THIS BLOG to bluto’s chagrin that bluto still has a man crush on Mark Richt – the loser.

 

“I don’t think Mark Richt is losing his job” after losing to Florida. bluto said.  “He isn’t going anywhere.”  Bluto “don’t think losing his job this year. (Nov ’15) can’t deny was decision that couldn’t be justified.Again not saying you can’t make a case that he didn’t deserve to lose his job”

 

Now this :

 

“Mark Richt is trying to do a solid for both himself and his former employer there which of course is awesome.”

 

After last week stating he was SHUTTING-DOWN his blog and no longer is INTERESTED EVEN in Georgia Bulldogs Football – too much drudgery without Mark Richt his personal Savior who WALKS ON WATER best ever according to bluto.

 

Not following The Bulldogs.  Doesn’t have season tickets any longer – if he ever did.  bluto states NOW he doesn’t even WANT to follow The Bulldogs any longer.

 

Give it up bluto.  You LOST.  I won.  I FIRED him when you said he wasn’t going anywhere and would still be here today.

 

Didn’t you bluto ?

 

Sure you did.

 

Never any doubt of ANY of this.

 

https://blutarsky.wordpress.com/2017/01/28/the-return-of-evil-richt/

 

There was NOTHING SOLID about contacting Florida Gator recruits about a FALSE RUMOR bluto states DESPERATE as Mark Richt is in recruiting last year AND this year yet again.

 

Mark Richt is not a good recruiter and THIS just simply is yet MORE proof of this as well to wit bluto BRAGS on Mark Richt AGAIN this morning – like this is some great recruiting tactic by Mark Richt.

 

DESPERTATE MARK RICHT equals DESPERATE bluto.

 

Kirby out-recruited Mark Richt by 17 ranking positions 2016 Scout.com rankings and this season 2017 is no different is it bluto ?

 

Oh I am sorry bluto you don’t follow recruiting so you don’t know.

 

A good part of college football NOT TO FOLLOW being a CONFIRMED Mark Richt Apologist as you ARE still 14 months later about that which you were NOTHING but wrong right down the line on.

 

DESPERATE Mark Richt.

CBS Sports.com says Kirby might have 2 players taken in the up-coming NFL Draft after his 1st season here at Georgia.

Greg Pyke the # 21 Offensive Guard might go in the 7th Round or as a Free Agent rated the # 335 player overall in the Draft

 

Or Isaiah McKenzie might or might not be drafted in the 7th Round as well or as well as a Free Agent rated the # 37 Wide Receiver or the # 291 overall player in the Draft.  Isaiah McKenzie must have flunked-out like Tim Kimbrough the # 471 overall player and # 23 ILB.  Either that or NFL knows of his fumbles and drops bad hands and childish behavior.  Trust me we’re not losing anything.

 

Mo Smith is supposed to be the highest-rated not drafted or as Free Agent at # 424 overall and # 19 FS.

 

Tyler Catalina is the # 449 overall and # 27 OG.

 

Brandon Kublanow is the # 17 Center and # 491 overall

 

Quincy Mauger is the # 867 overall and # 41 SS.

 

And Greyson Lambert is the # 748 overall and # 38 QB.

Should Tom Brady have been allowed to play in this Super Bowl against the Falcons ?

Tom Brady petitioned the NFL in 2006 with Peyton Manning to have the NFL allow the home team to provide their own football to their own offense.

 

The home team used to provide all 24 NFL footballs for both teams by providing 24 footballs to the NFL official prior to game time until Tom Brady personally asked the NFL to change the rule in 2006.

 

The NFL then after that MEASURED Tom Brady’s FOOTBALLS and found them to be in FACT two (2) pounds below the minimum standard allowed. NFL Officials check all 24 footballs and insure they are inflated to exactly 13 PSI. 13 pounds per square inch air pressure. Rules call for the footballs to be half a pound higher or lower than 13. So anywhere from 12 and a half to 13 and a half.

 

Tom Brady’s footballs when he was on offense when the NFL checked them after Tom Brady asked for the rules to be changed so that he could provide his own footballs for his own offense measured 2 PSI lower than the lowest ALLOWABLE PERMISSIBLE of 12 and a half. In other words after Tom Brady asked for every offense to provide its own footballs Tom Brady’s footballs measured 10 and a half pounds per square inch.

 

AND the NFL tested several of Tom Brady’s footballs and stated several ““appeared to be coated in a tacky substance and seemed spongy or soft when squeezed.”

 

Tom Brady HIMSELF after LOSING on Appeal to the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and upon LOSING a request for a rehearing accepted the COURT RULING and announced HIMSELF July 15 of 2016 just prior to THIS SEASON that he would not appeal further and would accept the 4-game suspension THIS SEASON the one million dollar NFL imposed fine on the New England Patriots owned by BOB KRAFT since 1994 and the loss of the 2016 NFL 1st Round Draft Pick AND the loss of the up-coming 2017 NFL Draft 4th Round pick.

 

Bill Belichick head coach New England Patriots said : “I think we all know that quarterbacks kickers specialists have certain preferences on the footballs. They know a lot more than I do. They’re a lot more sensitive to it than I am. I hear them comment on it from time to time but I can tell you and they will tell you that there’s never any sympathy whatsoever from me on that subject. Zero. Tom Brady’s personal preferences on his footballs are something that he can talk about in much better detail and information than I could possibly provide.”

 

An NFL source stated that the investigation was focusing on a Patriots locker room attendant who was seen on surveillance video taking the 24 game footballs 12 from each team into a restroom for approximately 90 seconds. This video was provided to the NFL.

 

INDEPENDENT Manhattan prominent legal counsel was hired to do a “thorough and objective and pursued expeditiously” INDEPENDENT Wells Report on this CHEATING which concluded that it is : “more probable than not” that New England Patriots’ equipment personnel were deliberately circumventing the rules. AND more to the point of Bill Belichick the INDEPENDENT REPORT states that : Tom Brady BY NAME was declared as being more probable than not that Tom Brady was “generally aware” of the deflation.

 

THIS INDEPENDENT REPORT focuses on the communications and actions of locker-room attendant Jim McNally and equipment assistant John Jastremski. The report concludes it was “more probable than not” that the two deliberately purposely released air from the New England Patriots’ game balls after they were tested by game officials. In several texts between Jim McNally and John Jastremski the two BOTH mention and tell jokes to each other about the inflation deflation and needles in their methodology to CHEAT to win. Jim McNally AND John Jastremski BOTH discuss many gifts from Tom Brady to Jim McNally. Tom Brady is a constant reference point in these revelations of CONSTANT CHEATING for a LONG TIME. Jim McNally referred to himself as “the deflator” in a text message to John Jastremski for example as far back as May 2014.

 

THIS INDEPENDENT REPORT states that PRINCETON UNIVERSITY PHYSICS confirms within the range of game conditions and circumstances studied NO SET OF ENVIRONMENTAL OR PHYSICAL FACTORS could account for the loss of air pressure exhibited by the New England Patriots’ game balls EXCEPT FOR BY HUMAN INTERVENTION.

 

Bob Kraft is chairman and CEO of the Kraft Group a one and a half billion dollar annual mostly real estate firm who is NOT Kraft Foods NOR Heinz Ketchup which is Kraft-Heinz. And this the owner since 1994 of the New England Patriots.

 

After buying the team who were about what the Falcons are before that in 1994 New England has gone to 7 Super Bowls and won 4.

 

Dynasty.

 

NFL Dynasty.

 

BOB KRAFT released a statement that : “we will accept the findings of the report and take the appropriate actions based on those findings as well as any discipline levied by the league.”

 

The NFL SUSPENDED Tom Brady without pay for four (4) games THIS SEASON NOW that he faces the Falcons in the Super Bowl for his involvement based on “substantial and credible evidence” that Tom Brady knew New England Patriots employees were deflating footballs AND THAT he failed to cooperate with investigators.

 

So why is he allowed to compete in the Super Bowl ?

 

That makes NO SENSE to me.

 

The NFL THEN RELEASED a PUBLIC STATEMENT to Tom Brady SPECIFICALLY : “Your actions as set forth in the report clearly constitute conduct detrimental to the integrity of and public confidence in the game of professional football.”

 

THEN the NFL released this statement after the Appeal by BOB KRAFT and Tom Brady about Tom Brady’s destruction of his cell phone : “He did so even though he was aware that the investigators had requested access to text messages and other electronic information that had been stored on that phone. During the four months that the cell phone was in use Brady had exchanged nearly 10000 text messages none of which can now be retrieved from that device. The destruction of the cell phone was not disclosed until June 18 almost four months after the investigators had first sought electronic information from Brady.”

 

So I think this is a legitimate question then why is Tom Brady being allowed to play in this Super Bowl then ?

 

Pete Rose was banned from baseball for betting on the games. Tom Brady was caught red-handed in a prolonged effort to cheat to take unfair competitive advantage found guilty suspended 4 games this season and now gets to play the Falcons this same very year.

 

That’s just wrong isn’t it ?

 

To which Tom Brady went to his facebook page and issued THIS : “I was under no obligation to set a new precedent going forward nor was I made aware at any time during Mr. Wells investigation that failing to subject my cell phone to investigation would result in ANY discipline.”

 

The Boston Globe sportswriter Mr. Dan Shaughnessy states: “Bottom line: The Patriots were doing it. They had a system of deflating footballs after the balls were inspected by officials. Any agenda-less person who reads the Wells Report would come away with no other conclusion. The texts were unexplainable.”

 

The NFL released a STATEMENT that Tom Brady “knew about approved of consented to and provided inducements and rewards in support of a scheme by which with Mr. Jastremski’s support Mr. McNally tampered with the game balls” and purposely destroyed his cell phone when asked to provide it.

 

So since Tom Brady was found guilty of ALL of this and agreed to it why is he being allowed to play in this Super Bowl right after admitting all this ?

 

I don’t understand that, do you?

 

1-26-2017

37701 passing yards Matt Ryan never made a Super Bowl start. But Matt Ryan is a not a CHEATING Quarterback like Tom Brady. 0-2 vs. New England one of the only 2 remaining teams veteran QB Matt Ryan has not beat. Matt Ryan has weapons this time. Tom Brady has won 4 of his 7 Super Bowl Starts at QB all when the OTHER QB was considerably WORSE as a QB. This is the 51st NFL Play-Off game for the New England Patriots in Super Bowl 51. Super Bowl LI 51 Deflategate Super Bowl. Tom Brady is a CHEATER and this the 1st Super Bowl after being PROVED as a cheater. Bob Kraft ? POS. Well he’s NOT Kraft Foods OR Heinz Ketchup Kraft-Heinz. And he’s NO Arthur Blank.

The systemic and systematic CHEATING by the New England Patriots since BOB KRAFT bought the team has been WELL-DOCUMENTED.

 

Tom Brady argued with Peyton Manning to the NFL in 2006 to CHANGE THE NFL RULES to allow Tom Brady specifically to underinflate the footballs provided by the HOME TEAM because Tom Brady argued to the NFL that it made the ball easier to grip throw catch handle and hold-on to during COLD WEATHER and during WET WEATHER. NFL Rules state between 12 and a half and 13 and a half pounds per square inch is permissible. Tom Brady in 2006 got the NFL to AGREE with HIM TOM BRADY and allow the EACH TEAM to PROVIDE ALL FOOTBALLS to THEIR OWN TEAM on OFFENSE for Tom Brady.

 

Prior to this ruling 2006 by the NFL petitioned by TOM BRADY the ruling by the NFL back before that was that the home team provided all the footballs to BOTH TEAMS.

 

I know.  I had Falcons’ seasons’ tickets before I gave them up after eating lunch EVERY Friday at the stadium with Rankin Smith in the West End Rotary Club.  All Rankin Smith cared about was MONEY.  I know.  I listened to EVERY WORD he spoke between bites EVERY FRIDAY.  Arthur Blank is NO Rankin Smith.

 

So as the worldwide media converges today on Atlanta to get the INSIDE SCOOP on the Super Bowl LI 51 here is my take on this.

 

You KNEW I would and here it is from OUR STANDPOINT as Falcons’ fans.

 

The NFL has MEASURED Tom Brady’s FOOTBALLS and found them to be in FACT two (2) pounds below the minimum standard allowed.

 

THIS IS CHEATING.

 

Purposeful CHEATING.

 

Calculated purposeful CHEATING.

 

Tom Brady implicitly encouraged the NFL to change the NFL RULES to FAVOR his ability to grip throw catch handle and hold-on to HIS OWN FOOTBALLS himself.

 

This is a prima facie case of CHEATING to win. Tom Brady HIMSELF after LOSING on Appeal to the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and upon LOSING a request for a rehearing Tom Brady accepted the COURT RULING and announced HIMSELF July 15 just prior to THIS SEASON that he would not appeal further and would accept the suspension THIS SEASON.

 

So Tom Brady is a PROVEN CHEATER.

 

CHEATING to purposely underinflate the footballs he used since AT LEAST 2006. And obviously it occurred to Tom Brady PRIOR to 2006 as well that underinflated footballs made the ball easier to grip throw catch handle and hold-on to.

 

Bill Belichick head coach New England Patriots said : “I think we all know that quarterbacks kickers specialists have certain preferences on the footballs. They know a lot more than I do. They’re a lot more sensitive to it than I am. I hear them comment on it from time to time but I can tell you and they will tell you that there’s never any sympathy whatsoever from me on that subject. Zero. Tom Brady’s personal preferences on his footballs are something that he can talk about in much better detail and information than I could possibly provide.”

 

An NFL source stated that the investigation was focusing on a Patriots locker room attendant who was seen on surveillance video taking the 24 game footballs 12 from each team into a restroom for approximately 90 seconds. This video was provided to the NFL.

 

NFL officials put 13 pounds per square inch into the footballs.

 

So the NFL investigated. The NFL investigative report states that specifically SEVERAL FOOTBALLS TESTED by the NFL which were GAME BALLS Tom Brady then used in NFL games “appeared to be coated in a tacky substance and seemed spongy or soft when squeezed.”

 

This is the NFL’s own investigative report.

 

THEN at the REQUEST of the New England Patriots’ owner Bob Kraft the NFL held an INDEPENDENT Manhattan prominent legal “thorough and objective and pursued expeditiously” INDEPENDENT Wells Report on this CHEATING which concluded that it is : “more probable than not” that New England Patriots’ equipment personnel were deliberately circumventing the rules. AND more to the point of Bill Belichick the INDEPENDENT REPORT states that : Tom Brady BY NAME was implicated as being more probable than not that Tom Brady was “generally aware” of the deflation.

 

THE CHEATING.

 

THIS INDEPENDENT REPORT focuses on the communications and actions of locker-room attendant Jim McNally and equipment assistant John Jastremski. The report concludes it was “more probable than not” that the two deliberately purposely released air from the New England Patriots’ game balls after they were tested by game officials. In several texts between Jim McNally and John Jastremski the two BOTH mention and tell jokes to each other about the inflation deflation and needles in their methodology to CHEAT to win. Jim McNally AND John Jastremski BOTH discuss many gifts from Tom Brady to Jim McNally. Tom Brady is a constant reference point in these revelations of CONSTANT CHEATING for a LONG TIME. Jim McNally referred to himself as “the deflator” in a text message to John Jastremski for example as far back as May 2014.

 

THIS INDEPENDENT REPORT states that PRINCETON UNIVERSITY PHYSICS confirms within the range of game conditions and circumstances studied NO SET OF ENVIRONMENTAL OR PHYSICAL FACTORS could account for the loss of air pressure exhibited by the New England Patriots’ game balls EXCEPT FOR BY HUMAN INTERVENTION.

 

New England Patriots are very dogmatic and vigorous with EXCUSES about alleged “vigorous rubbing” by the New England Patriots before play leakage during games and variations in football volume STILL TRYING TO GET-OUT of ALL OF THIS.

 

AGAIN this INDEPENDENT REPORT states that PRINCETON UNIVERSITY PHYSICS confirms that that is all bull that NONE OF THAT would have ANY discernable effect on the pressure of the New England Patriots’ provided FOOTBALLS and that ONLY HUMAN INTERVENTION would.

 

Bob Kraft is chairman and CEO of the Kraft Group a one and a half billion dollar annual mostly real estate firm who is NOT Kraft Foods NOR Heinz Ketchup which is Kraft-Heinz.

 

Bob Kraft has a net worth of over 5 billion from his hard-nosed real estate dealings.

 

Since Bob Kraft bought the team in 1994 ALL OF THIS has happened for the New England Patriots who frankly weren’t any better than the Falcons before that.

 

This has been a clear purposeful CHEATING from the beginning perpetrated by the New England Patriots TO CHEAT and nothing else.

 

And they ACHIEVED DYNASTY STATUS.

 

The footballs were in fact actually LESS-INFLATED than the INDEPENDENT REPORT stated because the FOOTBALLS were PLAYED in New England weather which is COLD.

 

Thus why Tom Brady INSISTED that the NFL allow HIM specifically to PROVIDE HIS OWN FOOTBALLS to each own football team’s offense to make the balls more malleable pliant soft workable pliable manipulative to grip throw catch handle and hold-on to.

 

Tom Brady who petitioned the NFL to CHANGE ITS RULES IN 2006 TO FAVOR HIS DESIRE FOR UNDERINFLATED FOOTBALLS to grip throw catch handle and hold-on to was “generally aware” himself personally about ALL OF THIS Deflategate.

 

I can tell when a ball is underinflated. Tom Brady SAYS HE CAN and that it AFFECTS his ability to grip throw catch handle and hold-on to MOST ESPECIALLY in wet or cold conditions.

 

THIS IS CHEATING.

 

BOB KRAFT released a DEFIANT statement that : “we will accept the findings of the report and take the appropriate actions based on those findings as well as any discipline levied by the league.”

 

CHEATER.

 

The NFL SUSPENDED Tom Brady without pay for four (4) games THIS SEASON NOW that he faces the Falcons in the Super Bowl for his involvement based on “substantial and credible evidence” that Tom Brady knew New England Patriots employees were deflating footballs AND THAT he failed to cooperate with investigators.

 

But it’s NOT JUST TOM BRADY.

 

The New England Patriots owned by BOB KRAFT were also fined one million dollars.

 

And Bob Kraft had to forfeit his 1st round pick in the 2016 NFL draft THIS YEAR as well as their fourth round pick in the up-coming 2017 NFL draft.

 

The NFL THEN RELEASED a PUBLIC STATEMENT to Tom Brady SPECIFICALLY : “Your actions as set forth in the report clearly constitute conduct detrimental to the integrity of and public confidence in the game of professional football.”

 

The NFL THEN stated that BOTH Jim McNally AND John Jastremski could not be rehired without the NFL’s approval.

 

BOB KRAFT then issued ANOTHER PUBLIC EDICT of his in his inimitable fashion that the punishment was UNREASONABLE.

 

THEN the NFL upheld on Appeal stated that Tom Brady SPECIFICALLY destroyed his own personal cell phone.

 

THEN the NFL released this statement after the Appeal by BOB KRAFT and Tom Brady about Tom Brady’s destruction of his cell phone : “He did so even though he was aware that the investigators had requested access to text messages and other electronic information that had been stored on that phone. During the four months that the cell phone was in use Brady had exchanged nearly 10000 text messages none of which can now be retrieved from that device. The destruction of the cell phone was not disclosed until June 18 almost four months after the investigators had first sought electronic information from Brady.”

 

To which Tom Brady went to his facebook page and issued THIS : “I was under no obligation to set a new precedent going forward nor was I made aware at any time during Mr. Wells investigation that failing to subject my cell phone to investigation would result in ANY discipline.”

 

Well yeah it does Tom Brady. THIS subjects you to THIS right here right now the NEXT Super Bowl from ME boy.  I am going to have MY SAY about this which frankly meant NOTHING to us here in Atlanta at the time.  NOW it does.  So I studied it since THIS IS the Super Bowl AFTER you are FOUND GUILTY.

 

The Integrity and public TRUST of NFL football is at STAKE boy.  And Mr. Wells’ investigation is possessive Tom Brady.

 

The Boston Globe sportswriter Mr. Dan Shaughnessy states: “Bottom line: The Patriots were doing it. They had a system of deflating footballs after the balls were inspected by officials. Any agenda-less person who reads the Wells Report would come away with no other conclusion. The texts were unexplainable.”

(https://youtu.be/3RGRyTGUbv4)

 

 

Tom Brady has beat in Super Bowls : Jake Delhomme Kurt Warner Russell Wilson and Donovan McNabb when everyone knows BOTH college football and the NFL are DOMINATED by the play of the QB. Eli Manning beat Tom Brady BOTH times he played him in the Super Bowl and Tom Brady is NOT that much better a QB than Matt Ryan is – just a CHEATER.  If Matt Ryan plays well Falcons have a chance against him.

 

He is just a CHEATER.

 

The NFL released a STATEMENT that Tom Brady “knew about approved of consented to and provided inducements and rewards in support of a scheme by which with Mr. Jastremski’s support Mr. McNally tampered with the game balls” and purposely destroyed his cell phone when asked to provide it.

 

Tom Brady ADMITTED to THAT too.

 

So for THIS SEASON in which now the Falcons play these confirmed CHEATERS Tom Brady was SUSPENDED four (4) games THIS SEASON.  Now we play them THIS SEASON in the Super Bowl.

 

CHEATERS.

 

THIS is the back-drop THIS SEASON to the Falcons’ and New England Patriots’ CHEATERS’ Super Bowl. It has been well-documented through the BOB KRAFT years that New England CHEATED including not ONLY THIS but also video-taping of opponents’ signals to gain a CHEATER’S advantage of their signals.  THIS is what is PROVEN.  THIS is what THIS SEASON is all about.  THIS tainting of the NFL and its DYNASTY New England Patriots picked to win again but this time with the substantially superior QB not the New England Patriots’ QB and he but a CHEATER who should not be playing the game AT ALL ever again.

 

CHEATERS.

 

*Dynasty ?  *4 Super Bowl victories ?

 

*Dynasty

*4 Super Bowl victories

 

*=Cheaters proven confirmed repeat CHEATERS.

*=Tainted

 

THIS is what THIS Super Bowl is ALL ABOUT.

 

Whether proven cheaters prosper or not THIS SEASON.

 

There is NO QUESTION that Tom Brady should NOT have been allowed to compete in THIS SUPER BOWL.

Brad Crawford 247Sports.com who this time last year said the MOST IMPORTANT GEORGIA BULLDOG for 2016 is ANYONE but Jacob Eason now today takes POT SHOTS at President Donald J. Trump whom I voted for like Herschel Walker did. And goes on to say that Herschel Walker said to the protesters who protested BECAUSE THEY FAILED TO GO VOTE for Hillary that they SHOULD NOT PROTEST a great man who had only been in OFFICE one day. Damn right Herschel Walker.

As for you Brad Crawford let me also add sir that it WAS OBVIOUS this time last year that Jacob Eason HAD TO BE NAMED STARTER and HAD TO GET REPS all Spring and ALL FALL with the # 1 unit to PREPARE him and that had Kirby done that since he STARTED HIM ANYWAY then the OFFENSE would NOT HAVE BEEN SUCH A FAILED OFFENSE LAST ENTIRE SEASON as a DIRECT RESULT thereof.

 

Look Brad Crawford sir if you want to TURN YOUR 247Sports.com into a POLITICAL website have at it but START by telling those of your ilk to bother to GO VOTE then you have a COMPLAINT that the WRONG PERSON GOT ELECTED.

 

It was a RESOUNDING WIN for President Donald J. Trump because the very ones who were NOT SUPPOSED TO VOTE for him were the VERY ONES who got him elected.

 

Women.

 

Minorities.

 

Mexicans.

 

I am with Hershel Walker on this COMPLETELY and fully.

 

Whether President Donald J. Trump appoints Hershel Walker to a high-ranking position or NOT. Hershel Walker HAS ALWAYS BEEN into POLITICS. It is whom it is he is.

 

You getting any of this Mr. Brad Crawford sir ?

 

Read on.

 

Cease with your use of 247Sports.com to talk NOT ABOUT SPORTS but Politics or RENAME your God Damn blog Mr. Brad Crawford sir to Bleeding Hearts who did NOT vote.com  who did NOT vote and now want to complain about none of you VOTING this time.

 

Folks go to 247Sports.com Mr. Brad Crawford sir to READ ABOUT SPORTS not your views on whether you would like to say that the protesters did ANYTHING but to DISCREDIT THEMSELVES such as Madonna as YOUR SPOKESWOMAN. A playboy centerfold who stated that her life’s ambition is to become a rock-and-roll star.

 

Instead all she has become NOW is a frustrated hateful God Damn BITCH because of her controversial subjects such as violence firearms nudity and politics such as inviting Nicki Minaj on the halftime show of the Super Bowl shooting US ALL A GOD DAMN BIRD.

 

And culminating with YOU BRAGGING on the PROTESTERS to President Donald J. Trump about whom Madonna said AT SUCH PROTESTS you put up on a pedestal Mr. Brad Crawford sir that President Donald J. Trump go “Go F” himself on MULTIPLE major networks carrying her foul-mouthed speech protesting President Donald J. Trump before having to break-away for the foul God Damn Language Madonna used Mr. Brad Crawford BRAGGING on THESE PROTESTERS.

 

Sir.

 

It is a liberal tradition to DO NOTHING TO HELP YOURSELF SUCH AS BY VOTING and then AFTER do NOTHING BUT COMPLAIN ABOUT THE RESULTS.

 

As you are doing Mr. Brad Crawford sir today on your cough cough SPORTS BLOG.

 

“I’m angry. Yes I am outraged. Yes I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House.” Madonna said on NATIONAL TV several prominent NETWORKS simultaneously FOR ALL OF US TO HEAR.

 

So YOU Mr. Brad Crawford sir run to your SPORTS BLOG today to BRAG on Madonna.

 

Good luck with that Mr. Brad Crawford sir.

 

You and your ilk.

 

Secret Service WILL investigate Madonna after the foul-mouthed BITCH says she has “thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House” in her expletive-filled rant at the VERY PROTEST you want to brag about Mr. Brad Crawford sir.

 

Go F yourself Mr. Brad Crawford sir.

 

“I have thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House.” Madonna pontificates on multiple respected networks and your reaction Mr. Brad Crawford sir you God Damn PIECE OF SHIT ?

 

Oh Mr. Brad Crawford thinks SHE IS SO FRIQIN’ GREAT for all this.

 

Madonna’s speech was a CALL FOR ACTION Mr. Brad Crawford.

 

YOU were already on MY SHIT LIST Mr. Brad Crawford sir for NOT RECOGNIZING that Jacob Eason was KEY TO THE GEORGIA BULLDOGS BEING ANY GOOD AT ALL 2016 while Kirby was complaining to you the press that he could not FIGURE IT OUT whom it was he WOULD END-UP HAVING TO START ANYWAY with NO SNAPS with the # 1 unit when Kirby had Jacob Eason here January 12th when he BOTHERED to show-up himself.

 

Of course Mr. Brad Crawford sir you don’t know ANYTHING about Jacob Eason being BETTER than Greyson Damn Lambert so you just REFUSED TO LIST Jacob Eason as possibly this time last year being EVEN ON YOUR GOD DAMN LIST Mr. Brad Crawford sir of whom it was who was the MOST IMPORTANT BULLDOG 2016 season this time last year.

 

Now this.

 

Now this from you too Mr. Brad Crawford sir.

 

You’re a dumbass son of a bitch Mr. Brad Crawford sir.

 

Madonna dropped the God Damn Freaking F-Bomb 4 times to President Donald J. Trump THEN called the audience to ACTION that Madonna has “thought an awful lot about blowing up the White House.”

 

So you RUN to the Internet to hide behind your keyboard this morning Mr. Brad Crawford sir to PONTIFICATE to ALL US THERE to READ SPORTS that Madonna is GREAT and Herschel Walker is JUST WRONG as you see it.

 

Go F-Bomb yourself Mr. Brad Crawford sir.

 

AND TRY NEXT TIME to go VOTE like I did.

 

YOU weren’t THERE Mr. Brad Crawford sir AT THE POLLS. I looked.

 

Donning her pink pussyhat Madonna pulls this THREAT and CALL FOR ACTION from those listening has her speech pulled-away from by EVERY MAJOR NEWS SERVICE telecasting it at the time and ALL APOLOGIZE to their audiences that THIS ALL HAPPENED as I suggest here it DID IN FACT and YOU run to your SPORTS BLOG on 247Sports.com to TELL ALL US that THIS IS ALL GREAT Mr. Brad Crawford sir.

 

The United States Attorney’s Office is deciding how to proceed with Madonna NOW Mr. Brad Crawford sir.

 

Ashley Judd joined Madonna in spewing lewd rants against President Donald J. Trump. Personal attacks not only on President Donald J. Trump but also his family including his daughter Ivanka Trump.

YOU Mr. Brad Crawford sir ?

 

You CALL for the SAME as Madonna and Ashley Judd TODAY when of course it is ALL OVER because YOU sir FAILED TO VOTE like they did NOT either or ANY of the REST of your ilk Mr. Brad Crawford sir.

 

“I’m not as nasty as your own daughter being your favorite sex symbol your wet dreams infused with your own genes.” Ashley Judd calling President Donald J. Trump “Hitler.” Then Ashely Judd TOO let loose the F-Bomb to EVERYONE who does not agree with her that President Donald J. Trump is “Hitler” she calls our President of The United States of America.

 

Hillary is the ONLY WOMAN who could’ve possibly run against President Donald J. Trump and LOST.  She stood by her husband an admitted adulterer with a cigar IN THE OVAL OFFICE and called his accuser a LIAR only to be PROVEN telling the TRUTH when President Bill Clinton ADMITTED he committed adultery while PRESIDENT.

 

Of course HE LIED TOO about all this. “I did NOT have sexual relations with this woman.”

 

If THIS is what you want to TALK ABOUT on YOUR SPORTS BLOG today Mr. Brad Crawford sir consider this MY RAMMING OF IT BACK UP YOUR GOD DAMN ASSHOLE boy.

 

YOU ?

 

You laud ALL OF THIS.

 

On your “SPORTS BLOG” this morning Mr. Brad Crawford sir.

 

In case you have not noticed Mr. Brad Crawford sir groups of 4 or more Americans are attacked MORE than once a day for years now trying to KILL US.

 

Radical Islamic extremists.

 

Wake the F up.

 

Liberal bleeding hearts.

 

If you wanted a different President you should have gone and VOTED as I.

 

Give the President a chance as he’s only been in Office one day.

 

And quit with the THREATS to our President Donald J. Trump.

 

And REFERENCES thereto as if it the right and proper thing for ALL to go do Mr. Brad Crawford sir.

YOU wouldn’t let ANY of US get-away with ANY of THIS if we were to try.

 

Stick it up your God Damn asshole Mr. Brad Crawford sir.

bluto quits being a Bulldogs’ fan : “I used to indulge in recording everything and going back to watch it all again in the offseason. Then in the aftermath of the 2015 season about a month after the bowl game I realized I had no interest in reliving any part of that dull grind. Out went it all.” state senator of NOTHING bluto of get the picture gtp says TODAY on his blog REFERENCING a URL LINK to Mark Richt being FIRED.

Trust me bluto we ALL know you have QUIT being a fan of the program that you ONLY JOINED 2001 after Mark Richt was HIRED HERE. I know. I was there on Online Athens when you JOINED bluto.

We get it bluto. You AREN’T a fan of this program any more. Point taken.

 

You’ve always been pretty-much a God Damn dumbass from the beginning.  Why should it change now that you WANT to SHUT-DOWN your Mark Richt Apologists’ blog  and haven for same ?

One is better than none and two would be two times more now that David Andrews and Malcolm Mitchell are taking-on the Falcons with Chris Mayes on injured reserve not playing for the Falcons this season.

1 win in 168 combined seasons of the Falcons Braves Hawks and Flames/Thrashers.

 

Thank you Arthur Blank our # 1 sports’ fan.

 

I am rooting for the Falcons.

Matt Ryan trying to go to 4-4 in the NFL Play-Offs on Super Sunday 2 weeks from today as the Falcons DISMANTLE Green Bay Packers. Last time the Falcons played in the Super Bowl we had NO ONE and Chris Chandler the quarterback but Kyle Shanahan’s Dad Mike and John Elway did us in that day. Now the son Kyle can do what his Dad did before he takes the San Francisco job if he wants it. We have players for the Super Bowl this time. Can NFL MVP Matt Ryan do it one more time ? Why not ? Thank you Arthur Blank. NFC CHAMPIONS ATLANTA FALCONS 6 months before Atlanta Mercedes-Benz Stadium opens.

I never saw so many excuses in years and years.

 

Green Bay Packers must have some Mark Richt fans up there or something.  They were destroyed.  It was who Green Bay played LAST WEEK ?

 

Oh come on.

 

I thought for 8 years here to end his career here at Georgia that Mark Richt fans had the corner on EXCUSES.

 

That was UNTIL today.

 

The game LAST WEEK took it all out of Green Bay ?

 

Oh this guy is injured.

 

Every 4th play all game long Green Bay Packers were walking off the field injured.

 

It’s football Green Bay.

 

Oh you were fogged-in ?

 

Who’s fault is that in Green Bay for God’s sake ?

 

Be a man about it Green Bay.

 

You got your butts beat.

 

Boo-hoo to all your excuses.  You fumbled the ball and we didn’t even challenge it ahead by 23 points.

 

What’s the point ?

 

Losing because you GAVE-UP 6 TD and a field goal and you get pressured and throw the ball and that is all you can whine about throwing yet ANOTHER interception to the Falcons.

 

Where is your stadium like our new stadium Green Bay ?

 

What’s your excuse for that ?

 

Green Bay dropped the pass ?

 

Atlanta threw 2 should’ve been interceptions ?

 

Atlanta fumbled the ball and Green Bay should’ve had the ball did have it and then did not ?

 

I mean guys.

 

Aaron Rodgers 55-yard interception was in effect really a 55-yard punt ?

 

I’ve heard it ALL now.

 

No.  That was an interception and we promptly drove it right down the field for a TD.

 

No it was NOT a punt.

 

It was an interception and 14-point swing on THAT play.  You LOST 44-21.  We had 9 possessions and scored 6 TD and a field goal while punting twice including once at the end to pin you at the 3-yard line when we could MAKE that field goal too.

 

Why did you LOSE ?

 

It was NONE of your EXCUSES.

 

You guys have more excuses than a pregnant Nun.

 

Dan Quinn head coach Super Bowl 2nd season.

 

Matt Ryan was BETTER than your guy wasn’t he ?

 

1 win in 168 combined seasons of Falcons Braves Hawks and Flames/Thrashers.

 

We’re do.

 

And Matt Ryan NFL MVP can be 4-4 in the NFL Play-Offs and win Super Bowl MVP too.

 

The Atlanta Falcons CAN win the Super Bowl.

 

2 weeks Super Sunday OUR Day in Houston and we will be ready to win this time.

 

Now is not the time to celebrate now is the time to WIN !

 

Go Falcons !

There are no Bulldogs playing today in the last game at the Georgia Dome 3:05 p.m. Chris Mayes who played his last year here Mark Richt’s last year with 41 tackles is in his rookie season with the Falcons on injured reserve defensive tackle and did not play for the Falcons this year. Green Bay has no Bulldog either. In Foxborough at 6:40 p.m. today Malcolm Mitchell WR and David Andrews C are on New England Patriots. And Pittsburgh has Jarvis Jones OLB and Zach Mettenberger back-up QB. There are 39 former Bulldogs who have lifted the NFL Championship Game Trophy. These are whom we are down to this season.

David Andrews has Started and played every play for New England Patriots all season long as their Starting Center except for 4 plays.

Malcolm Mitchell has Started 6 of 14 games as WR for New England Patriots this season with 401 receiving yards with 4 touchdowns on 32 catches.

Jarvis Jones 44 tackles a sack two forced fumbles a fumble recovery 3 passes defended and an interception and return for 20 yards on the season for Pittsburgh Steelers as their Starting OLB 9 of 14 games this season after Starting all 15 games last season.

Zach Mettenberger has not played this season for Pittsburgh Steelers but did the last 2 years for Tennessee Titans with 208 completions in 345 attempts for 12 TD 2347 yards from Oconee whom I wanted to Start against Okie State instead of Joe Cox September 5 of 2009 which began this long run of nothingness here at Georgia losing 5 games 2009.

The Falcons are 12-5 trying to get to 13 wins and return to the Super Bowl.

All these players are trying to get to the Super Bowl this afternoon which will be held in Houston 2 weeks from today LI 51 with Lady Gaga and then next year in Minneapolis and then 2019 here at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium LIII 53 our 3rd Super Bowl here in Atlanta.

The Falcons behind Matt Ryan QB beat Aaron Rodgers Pro Football Hall of Fame QB 33-32 here at the Georgia Dome October 30 and now Aaron Rodgers who has already been Super Bowl MVP winner returns trying to avenge that rare loss here because he lost here while Julio Jones Alabama is going to try to play Ha Ha Clinton-Dix Alabama with his foot just killing him.

“So it just helps you better prepare for the environment you’re going to get and the kind of atmosphere you’re going to get.”

The question I have although Jeb Blazevich is talking about the no-name Indoor Practice Facility is how is that going to help us prepare when it is 46 degrees here in Athens November and nearly 90 with high humidity in JAX when that game EVERY YEAR is THERE ?

Appalachian State will not be an easy game and neither is at Notre Dame to start this season but we look to have our best recruiting class ever in our history a week from Wednesday to help us in a huge fashion.

Appalachian State is no gimme game

at Notre Dame is no gimme game

Mississippi State is no gimme game

at vols is no gimme game

at Vanderbilt is no gimme game for us

at JAX Florida is no gimme game

at Auburn is no gimme game

Kentucky is no gimme game

at Georgie tek yellowjackets damn well better be a gimme game this season

South Carolina and Missouri are gimme games for Kirby year two ?

That leaves Samford.

And Samford was # 24 in the FCS Coaches’ Poll for all of 2016.  Remember Nicholls game last year ?  This team is a LOT better than Nicholls last year.  Trust me.

This is not an easy schedule for Kirby.

And the toughest games for us are away from Sanford as always.

I sure am reading a LOT of blogs saying this is an EASY schedule for Kirby year two.

This is ludicrous talk.

Kirby gets Notre Dame 2017 at South Bend at Touchdown Jesus Mississippi State who played in a bowl game 2016 and Appalachian State who won their bowl game 2016 and were Sun Belt Champions at 10-3. Appalachian State gave the vols all they could handle in the opening game 2016 for both teams losing by only by 20-13 in overtime at Neyland so Appalachian State is not coming here to Sanford September 2 as some opening game warm-up for Notre Dame for us.

 

Samford is game 3 and that is the only game which is a breather September 16 for Kirby all 2017 season. If the players and coaches take any other game all 2017 for granted we’ll lose. 11 of our 12 games before SEC Championship and then the Bowl Game could easily be a loss.

Kentucky was a Bowl team 2016. Vanderbilt was a Bowl team 2016. Mississippi State was a Bowl team 2016 too. Appalachian State was a Bowl team 2016. vols were a Bowl team 2016. In fact vols won their Bowl Game 2016 against # 24 Nebraska 38-24 and vols were # 21 in College Football Play-Off Poll 2016 by virtue of them beating The Mighty Georgia Bulldogs on a last-gasp Hail Mary. We ruined Auburn’s season 2016 beating them at our house but Auburn was still # 17 in the College Football Play-Off Poll 2016 and ended # 17 in both the AP and Coaches’ Polls after losing to # 7 Oklahoma in the Sugar Bowl 2016.   I’ve been to many Sugar Bowls through the years but Kirby certainly did not 2016 like Auburn.

 

Mississippi State won their Bowl game 2016 too and to get to the Bowl game 2016 Mississippi State beat Texas A&M and South Carolina and Ole Miss before beating Miami of Ohio in Mississippi State’s Bowl win 2016. So that is no gimme given our blow-out loss to Ole Miss whom Mississippi State handled AT Ole Miss by three times their score 55 Mississippi State 20 Ole Miss at Ole Miss. Texas A&M whom Mississippi State beat 2016 too was # 22 in both the AP and Coaches’ Polls for 2016 and Mississippi State beat them by double-digits.

 

Brian Kelly in his 7th year at the helm for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish beat Mark Richt’s Miami of Florida Hurricanes at South Bend 2016.

 

And while that may not surprise Mark Richt fans – both of them – that Mark Richt went to South Bend 2016 and LOST the fact remains that Notre Dame RUINED Mark Richt’s season 2016.

South Carolina was a Bowl team 2016 and while they lost their Bowl game to South Florida South Florida was # 22 in the Coaches’ Poll 2016 and # 24 in the Final AP Poll. I think we all recall the game at South Carolina last year where they wouldn’t relent on playing it there in the 45 mph gusts. 5 passes ? STFU about 5 passes. It was miserable conditions for Jacob Eason and you know it.

 

South Carolina is a Rivalry Game to South Carolina and with Kirby’s best of buddies Will Muschamp picking-off the top Wide Receiver in the state of Georgia 2017 trust me Kirby and Will see this as a Rivalry game both of them.

 

While Mark Stoops at Kentucky beat all these teams. Mark Stoops watched us march into Lexington and was nonplussed with us losing by the slimmest of margins 27-24 The Good Guys. Mark Stoops went to # 11 Louisville and beat the shit out of Bobby Petrino who was # 13 in the College Football Play-Off Poll 2016 and # 15 in the Final Coaches’ and AP Polls. Mark Stoops also beat South Carolina Vanderbilt Missouri and Mississippi State. This is not the definition of a CUPCAKE.

Did I mention Florida beat us ? vols beat us. Vanderbilt beat us. The damn yellowjackets beat us. None of them of push-overs for 2017 either.

ESPN states their criteria for ranking KIRBY # 1 of the 65 Power 5 Conference Coaches in RECRUITING prowess : (1) Favorable geography/local recruiting territory top 3 state producer Power 5 recruits and only Georgie tek to compete with in-state which is not at all (2) Recruiting/football budget $ 581k AND don’t have far to go to get out-of-state recruits either (3) Facilities to attract recruits : $30 million Indoor Practice Facility AND # 6 best college stadium WITH # 1 college football TOWN and the predominantly women’s school (4) Next-level considerations 33 NFL Draft Picks RECENTLY (5) Other intangibles : The SEC East gives KIRBY another advantage in recruiting because it’s not The SEC West.

Now FOX SPORTS says since the recruits are lined-up mostly and the ones leaving are known now who are the UP-AND-COMING TOP FOUR (4) TEAMS FOR 2017 ? Well USC OKLAHOMA FSU and GEORGIA top 4. The HYPE is justifiable for UGA because all those who said they were COMING-BACK 2017 who did not have to along with all the others STILL HERE and the great recruiting class makes UGA a top 4 play-off contender 2017 so says FOX SPORTS.com

Jason Butt macon.com Bulldog alumn doesn’t mention Mecole Hardman Jr. as one of those looking for BIG EXPANDED roles 2017 over 2016 seldom use. But he is. So is Brian Herrien. And Ben Cleveland. And Chauncey Manac. And Elijah Holyfield. And Jaleel Laguins. And Charlie Woerner. And Chris Barnes. And Javon Wims. And THAT just from the first year guys Kirby recruited here 2016. Of the 2017 recruits no less than 15 are looking for great EXPANDED break-out years 2017 themselves. And that is BEFORE we even discuss guys like Jacob Eason settled-in at QB looking to break-out 2017 and of course Nick Chubb and Sony Michel BOTH looking for tremendous 2017 break-out seasons. Dominick Sanders is looking to break-out 2017. Davin Bellamy. Lorenzo Carter. Lamont Galliard. Trenton Thompson. Roquan Smith. Jonathan Ledbetter. Natrez Patrick. Julian Rochester. The list is endless when you consider even Terry Godwin believes he can be a huge influence 2017 too. Reggie Carter. Malkom Parrish. Aaron Davis is a tackling machine. It should be QUITE THE YEAR despite senator bluto is on his latest long-term whining since Mark Richt was FIRED – that is because he does NOT even follow recruiting and NEVER HAS.

Jason Butt mentions Jacob Eason, receiver Riley Ridley, tight end Isaac Nauta, running back Brian Herrien, and four defensive linemen in Julian Rochester, Tyler Clark, David Marshall and Michail Carter all got to play 2016.

 

Jason Butt then goes into Solomon Kindley Tyrique McGee and Tyler Simmons will see expanded roles 2017.

 

Looking for BIG EXPANDED roles 2017 over 2016 seldom use

 

From my point of view there are a lot of other 2016 signees who have great upside in playing time and expanded roles 2017 for us :

 

Mecole Hardman Jr.

Brian Herrien

Ben Cleveland

Chauncey Manac

Elijah Holyfield

Jaleel Laguins

Charlie Woerner could be used in WR rotation beast good hands great blocker downfield

Javon Wims got only 3 starts 2016 and could see significant enhanced opportunities tough good hands

Chris Barnes could see his role expand Lee County 1st Team All-State All-America OG

 

http://www.macon.com/sports/college/university-of-georgia/bulldogs-beat/uga-football/article127041459.html

.
This is really the entire point about 2016 Jason Butt macon.com that Kirby did NOT quickly DETERMINE whom it was he had on the team getting here January 12 a week ago in other words last year.  Even Jacob Eason wasting him all Spring no snaps with the # 1 unit then making him starter as he KNEW HE HAD to.  And Fall practice no snaps # 1 unit until 3 weeks before kick-off then not the entire last week and still AFTER game 1 still Monday after practicing just Greyson Lambert with the # 1 unit even then.
.
Brian Herrien should have started in the backfield game 1 with the injuries to both Kirby’s Running Backs.
.
I would have played both redshirted OL 2016 so that they were ready for 2017.
.
Kirby WROTE-OFF 2016 and NOT HIGHLIGHTING this allows him to pull the same shit 2017 with this class of 15 players rated in the top 100 in the nation 2017 by at least one of the 3 major recruiting services.
.
Kirby has to GET WITH IT 2017 or the rumblings will be deafening.  We can not write-off 2017 by NOT EXPANDING THE ROLES and PLAYING TIME with the # 1 unit of the top STARS of this team because they are YOUNG.  Who gives a shit if they are YOUNG ?  Look how well Jacob Eason did as a True Freshman in The SEC ?  Get our top STARS on the field and START them and practice them with the # 1 unit beginning NOW now that the Spring weight lifting and conditioning has ALREADY begun now.
.
Kirby had to know he had to get these VERY MEN you list and LEAVE-OFF Jason Butt today in your article involved early-on who NOW you say he has to rely upon.  You let him write-off 2016 :  I shall not repeat that mistake 2017 with him personally.
.
Kirby made NO EFFORT to get these very men involved whom HE RECRUITED and SIGNED here 2016.  He shall NOT do the same with the 2017 true freshmen either.
.
Mark Richt left Kirby with 22 seniors gone in the Great Exodus of the last remnants of his Dream Team cough cough who averaged 4 losses per season the 6 years the group of 22 seniors were here who had ALL gone prior to Kirby’s 2016 season.  All whom Mark Richt STARTED.  All 22 did.
.
He KNEW therefore he had to play the true freshmen 2016 AND NOW AGAIN 2017.  YOU let him write-off the year.  I hold YOU responsible you and the ones saying 5 losses is not bad acceptable before and now after he did WRITE-OFF 2016 OVER this VERY POINT.
.
Hold Kirby accountable Jason Butt.  Don’t leave the ones off you did.  Tell him.  Ask him.  Make him quit with the antics in the press conferences and GET AFTER HIS ASS.
.
The damn honeymoon is freaking over.
Mecole Hardman Jr. one touch of the ball all season long the # 1 Athlete in The United States of America.  Bullshit.
.
.
 You see ?
.
It just doesn’t matter how good the recruits you sign ARE if you don’t practice them with the # 1 unit as soon as you can and PLAY them.
.
Cameo appearances of 1 special team return for an entire freshmen year with the # 1 Athlete in the NATION doesn’t cut it.
.
For example.
.
Neither with ALL the woes on OL to REDSHIRT your TOP 2 OL recruits 2016 and give the 3rd one snap all season making you have to petition the damn NCAA for the medical redshirt saying he was TOO INJURED PRIOR and AFTER.
.
Brag about recruiting.
.
Tell EVERYONE they have opportunity to play EARLY.
.
Again THIS COMING YEAR 2017 as you DID 2016 to THESE HERE you REALLY DID NOT GIVE A PROPER GO TO.
.
Did you ?
.
Which is what made 2016 a WRITE-OFF YEAR.
.
Just what we CAN’T DO AGAIN THIS YEAR.
.
Or the rumblings and Coaches’ Hot Seat.com will be truly deafening for us ALL to hear.
.
Kirby HAS TO FIX THIS SHIT.
.
Now.
.
Why is EVERYONE on the damn team looking for a BREAK-OUT YEAR 2017 ?
.
Because NONE of them were put in a position to EXCEL and WIN football games for us 2016.
.
Now were they ?
.
No.  Kirby did NOT put his top 2016 signees he himself SIGNED HERE in a position to EXCEL 2016 and WIN football games.
.
He wrote the year OFF before it EVER STARTED.
.
He didn’t even get here until January 12.
.
And then WHINED to the press about EVERY FRESHMAN and made SERIOUS deliberate disparaging remarks ABOUT ALL OF THEM.
.
And then didn’t let them practice with the # 1 unit.
.
You Jason Butt let him GET AWAY with this SHIT 2016.
.
I would have.
.
And HAVE given him HELL over it.
.
When someone YELLS AT ME like Kirby did to YOU Jason Butt ALL OF 2016 I crawl ALL UP THEIR GOD DAMN ASS.
.
I am NO wimp.
.
I have NEVER taken ANY shit off of ANYONE my entire God Damn Life.  And, I am NOT ABOUT to START in my old age.
.
You let Kirby Smart give YOU HELL Jason Butt all of 2016 in EVERY SINGLE press conference.  You FAILED therefore Jason Butt to Get After His Ass 2016 at ALL Jason Butt.  You KNOW what I am saying here is TOTALLY CORRECT and TO THE DAMN POINT.
.
.

LOOK if you haven’t read these 2 great posts YOU MUST. You will be glad you DID. Forget all the bullshit about bluto WHINING STILL for he has NEVER followed recruiting and NEVER WILL. A coach CAN BE JUDGED AS GREAT JUST SIMPLY BECAUSE HE HAS GREAT PLAYERS. Trust ME on THIS. But to both these great MUST READ POSTS today if Kirby does NOT GATA and get them ON THE FIELD top recruits can’t WIN THE GAMES for you which is OUR ONLY GOAL.

http://georgia.247sports.com/Bolt/Smart-lot-of-excitement-surrounding-UGA-recruiting-50621154

 

( http://georgia.247sports.com/Bolt/Smart-lot-of-excitement-surrounding-UGA-recruiting-50621154 )

 

247Sports.com Kipp Adams writes this first post MUST READ which is the best article I have read on Bulldogs in my lifetime.  It is a great article with all the information you need in that one article.  It says IT ALL.

 

https://www.dawgnation.com/football/georgia-recruiting-kirby-smart-best-recruiting-class-2017

 

 

( https://www.dawgnation.com/football/georgia-recruiting-kirby-smart-best-recruiting-class-2017 )

 

AJ-C DawgNation Connor Riley writes this second MUST READ and he is quickly becoming a favorite of mine.

 

Don’t miss either article.

 

THIS is what is going-on on this day not that bluto senator of nothing is STILL WHINING about Mark Richt being friqin’ FIRED and that HE DOES NOT like recruiting and purposely IGNORES it fully and completely.  He only became known on the Internet AFTER Mark Richt was HIRED and NEVER let me have my say about HIS MISTAKES in 2001 on Athens Banner-Herald.  He’s a dumbass.  I proved he all wet on Mark Richt.  He KNOWS that.  YOU know that.

 

Forget bluto who cares what he does with his blog of Apologists ?  I sure as shit don’t.

 

What is important NOW given these 2 posts I highlight for YOU today is that Kirby PRACTICES these guys 2017 coming-in and gets them READY TO PLAY 2017 for us along with patching-up the 2016 recruits KIRBY SIGNED here WHOM he ALSO did NOT play.

 

It matters not how great the players if the coach does not practice them with the # 1 unit and gets them ready with NO UPPER CLASS players HERE – thank you Mark Richt.

 

There is no write-off season 2017 and I hate it that it was acceptable to you for 2016.

 

Say it was NOT.

 

1-18-2017

 

 

 

 

“I will say that for those of you who claim to detect a rise in my level of cynicism about Georgia football you may have a point.” bluto . Am I seriously bluto not supposed to remember what you SAID and DID even unto the END and BEYOND even until now about Mark Richt this senator of NOTHING but bluto ? “It’s hard for me to accept that Smart escapes that history other than as the result of sheer blind luck” and ENDS-UP BEING A GOOD COACH.

“I will say that for those of you who claim to detect a rise in my level of cynicism about Georgia football you may have a point.”  bluto

“Greg McGarity’s track record as an evaluator of coaches when it comes to hiring and firing.” bluto

“In light of recent comments I’ve seen here questioning my support for Kirby Smart.”  bluto

“To suggest that I’m rooting for him to flop out of a sense of cynicism or bitterness arising from Mark Richt’s dismissal”

“I don’t have time to sit through a mediocre four-year run and then wait to see if the next guy is the one to pull the program’s proverbial nuts out of the fire.”

“I simply don’t see how the 2016 season is worthy of being exempt from criticism on just about every level.”

“There’s the process that led to Smart’s hire. Feel free to dismiss it in your enthusiasm – whether that’s due to Smart himself – the importation of the Process – Richt’s dismissal – or some combination of the three – but I’m not of the same mind.”

“It’s hard for me to accept that Smart escapes that history other than as the result of sheer blind luck” and ENDS-UP BEING A GOOD COACH.

Now we’re finally getting to the nitty-gritty of it bluto you have repeated yourself for YEARS that Mark Richt was NOT worthy of criticism – GET ON THE BUS – don’t CRITICIZE Mark Richt – he’s NOT GOING ANYWHERE – he will STILL BE HERE TODAY you said AFTER the Florida loss 2015.  Mark Richt does not deserve the criticism.  He’s fine.  Best coach ever for us.

MORE of the same CONSISTENT point from you senator of NOTHING bluto – please NOTE you did not like the process that Mark Richt was FIRED with and say so AGAIN year and a half later now today. Nor do you like the process of hiring Kirby Smart as the replacement after FIRING MARK RICHT.

So it does not surprise ANYONE that you would be CONSISTENT on this point and STILL WHINE about us NOT having Mark Richt.

THAT is ALL you have EVER DONE.

 

Stick this up your God Damn lying ASSHOLE bluto.

 

So you’ll have to forgive me if I seem a little more negative at times than you’d prefer. You’re not Kirby Smart but don’t take it personally on his account.”

I don’t bluto. I take it that you are CONSISTENT on your point that YOU want Mark Richt here that you :

“Don’t think Mark Richt is losing his job this year” you said November 2015 AFTER losing to Florida.

“Can’t deny that it was decision to fire Mark Richt that couldn’t be justified.”

“And again not saying you can’t make a case that he didn’t deserve to lose his job.”

We got it bluto.

Trust me.

We’re not confused in the least.

This is ALL consistent with your WHINING about Mark Richt being FIRED.

Hey bluto – I was RIGHT about Mark Richt being FIRED – wasn’t I Bluto all these years dumbass son of a freaking bitch LIAR.

Get OVER it bluto.  You were WRONG. I was RIGHT ALL ALONG.  You’re STILL WRONG.

247Sports.com says Kirby has Five (5) guys coming-in in 2017 recruiting class who can help us. 247Sports.com Jake Rowe ? 5 sir ?

That is the single most asinine statement I have ever read Jake Rowe.  No one looks at our recruiting class 2017 and surmises we have FIVE (5) players who can help us.

 

No one in the entire country.

 

You work for 247Sports.com Jake Rowe.

 

Would you like to check-back with me on that statement say after a few years ?

 

This BY ALL MEASURES is the # 1 recruiting class The University of Georgia has EVER assembled because it contains 15 judged to be by your own site’s standards top 100 players.

 

I wonder about you Jake Rowe.  I really do sir.

 

That has to be a typo ?  15 not 5 ?

 

No.  You actually name the only 5.

 

Good Lord son.

Atlanta Mercedes-Benz Stadium hosts the Super Bowl 2019 LIII 53 and the National Championship Game THIS 2017 SEASON called the 2018 College Football Playoff National Championship Game next January 8 but the Georgia Dome has ONE MORE REMAINING Falcons’ game against Green Bay whom the Falcons beat here at the Georgia Dome 33-32 October 30 against Aaron Rodgers who has been Super Bowl Champ before.

This will be Atlanta’s 3rd time hosting the Super Bowl 2019.

 

With a pinwheel opening roof our new stadium here in Atlanta has a 58 feet tall 1100 feet long LED circular display board around the circumference of the open-roof design which is 3 times the size of the EverBank Field display board completely encompassing the entire playing field including end zones.

 

There is an unobstructed view of Atlanta’s skyline from the field with premium boxes behind the team benches field level and a 100-yard bar stretching the entire length of the field in the upper concourse at a cost estimated now to be the most expensive stadium for any sport ever built anywhere in the World.

 

Arthur Blank did this for us here in Atlanta a city of more than 7 million.  He the most prominent sports’ fan here in Atlanta by far.

 

Our new stadium will also host the 2020 NCAA Men’s Division 1 Final 4 NCAA Basketball Tournament March Madness Big Dance.

 

The playing surface will be GreenFields MX 3-Star Turf System as there is not enough sunlight for grass with all the purposes of Arthur Blanks’ palace.

 

 

(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=73KN80C7Sh4&feature=youtu.be)

 

There is this Super Bowl this year first and the Falcons must beat Aaron Rodgers and Green Bay to play in the Super Bowl LI 51.

Behind Richard Smith Defensive Coordinator and Kyle Shanahan Offensive Coordinator, Dan Quinn who was Defensive Coordinator for Seattle Seahawks before being hired by Arthur Blank, now is 20-13 at his first-time head coaching position including 1-0 in the NFL Playoffs.

 

The spotlight shines brightly on Kyle Shanahan.

 

Son of Mike who was 3-time Super Bowl Winner including one for San Francisco as their Offensive Coordinator and 2 as head coach Denver Broncos.

 

Kyle is on a meteoric rise to follow his head coach Dad.

 

This year’s Super Bowl is in Houston with Lady Gaga.

 

Kyle has been here two days short of one year as Offensive Coordinator Atlanta Falcons after resigning his same position with Cleveland January 2015 when he categorically refused to coach Johnny Manziel as the Starting Quarterback.

 

1-16-2017

 

 

 

 

 

 

What was your take-away from the 2 Major Events we watched today the Falcons’ GREAT win over Seattle in the Play-Offs when Seattle beat Falcons at HOME in Seattle in week 6 and our Georgia Men’s Basketball losing for the 14th time in a row down there in Florida ? Why do we play the game in JAX every year against our # 1 Rival ? What did you write about today about these 2 Major Sporting Events for us ?

As I watched these 2 major events today the Falcons’ rousting victory and Florida beating us for the 14th time in a row down there I feel compelled to write about what my take-away is from the 2 major events today.

 

The Falcons just LOST at Seattle week 6 this year.

 

Now they rout them at HOME here in Atlanta.

 

Did you hear anyone bragging on the Gator Bowl compared to Atlanta Falcons’ Mercedes-Benz stadium tonight watching the Falcons dominate one of the best NFL franchises Seattle ?

 

EverBank Field JAX is ranked the # 26 worst stadium in America by Athlon Sports :

https://athlonsports.com/ranking-best-and-worst-nfl-stadiums-2013#7

 

Picture the difference in the two NFL franchise’s stadiums ? Jacksonville and Atlanta.  Night and Day.

Once Ted Turner SOLD-OUT to go to Montana and buy that state out with his spoils we have not had good sports here or any effort to until now with Arthur Blank.

 

The Gator Bowl was opened with the name Jacksonville Municipal Stadium and now nearly a quarter of a century later it is one of the very WORST FOOTBALL STADIUMS in the nation. The renaming rights were sold to a since questionable bank of just 3700 employees who have major lawsuits against them as their investors lost $ 50 million dollars.   Not EverBank their investors lost $ 50 million dollars. EverBank is NOT ranked one of the better banks. EverBank only does $ 883 million in revenue puny by banks standards.   Atlanta Falcons’ Mercedes-Benz Stadium cost $ 1.7 billion so far.  That’s twice what EverBank DOES in revenue.  Who ever heard of EverBank ?  No one.

 

EverBank does NOT have a 5-Star Rating as a bank by Bauer Financial.

 

(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/d/d8/EverBank1.jpg/450px-EverBank1.jpg)

 

– Opened in 1995 has not hosted a major event after 2005. Will NEVER host a major sporting event until it is torn down and new Stadium built for Jacksonville’s Major Sporting Event EVERY YEAR which is us The Mighty Georgia Bulldogs coming to THEIR hellhole of a city for our game against OUR # 1 Rival.

 

– Cost: $121 million

 

 

(https://www.aiaatl.org/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2016/06/mercedez-benz-stadium.jpg)

 

Compare that puny amount the city of Jacksonville can come-up with to the $ 1.7 billion Atlanta’s new Mercedes-Benz football stadium cost for example.  After the exciting Atlanta win tonight in the play-offs against Seattle Matt Ryan is now 2-4 in the play-offs.  We have so many more entertaining places to go right there at the new Atlanta Mercedes-Benz Stadium than in all of drawn-out Jacksonville. It’s a bad deal for us to have to go there to Jacksonville as the only main event that stadium hosts.

 

Compare still having to play the game in JAX to the experience of having it at the new stadium for football Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium ?

 

Does this venue compare to Sanford OR Atlanta’s new Mercedes-Benz Stadium ?

 

Hell no.

 

So why is the game there every year ?

 

For us ?

 

– Capacity: 67,246

 

– 75 luxury suites

 

JAX lacks the bells and whistles that have been required components of most modern stadiums. The entertainment value for the fans just doesn’t add up. Lacks frills and excitement as a venue. EverBank Field is too boring. It is a simple perfunctory stadium. No one wants to go there. There is NO hope of getting a new stadium built anytime soon because EverBank does not have the resources to and the city is not a destination anyone wants to go to. Hosts the annual Gator Bowl every year. In fact when EverBank bought the naming rights to the Gator Bowl on their own WebPages they called it bought the naming rights to the Gator Bowl.

 

Site of the annual World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party 6 hours away one-way for us where we are not even allowed to host prospects removing The Georgia Bulldogs # 1 Rival from EVER playing at our house. The lost revenue each season in Athens has cost UGA the ability to expand the field to keep-up with other lesser programs who have used the revenue from their games at HOME against their # 1 Rival to expand their stadiums beyond Sanford Stadium on the world’s best college football campus.

 

The economic impact to the Athens Economy has been devastating to us on many levels.

 

  1. Losing $ 25 million in Revenue having the game at Sanford every other year in the WLOCP.
  2. Losing economic impact to # 1 College Football Town of $93.7 million* every 2 years no Florida.
  3. Having sad home schedules for which we all pony-up so much money to watch 6 cupcakes.
  4. Some schools get-in 9 “home” games for their team vols for example do so frequently.
  5. Never play our # 1 Rival at home.
  6. Our coaches have ALL STATED that playing there is a DISADVANTAGE for our players.
  7. The humidity is such that it is a huge difference compared to Athens causing us to show-up not acclimated to their climate.

*$93.7 million 2016 Economic Impact to the city of Athens # 1 college football town for NOT having Florida every other year based on this December 2016 Economic Impact Study listed here at this URL Link :

 

http://phys.org/news/2016-12-economic-impact-college-football-bowl.html

 

N.B. college football is twice the number of fans of NFL NBA and ANY OTHER SPORT.  It also is the MOST EXCITING SPORT and my own personal hobby.

 

I personally believe we would find the Economic Impact on Athens to be in excess of $ 93.7 million every other year.  It’s Florida.

 

Starting 1990 we have played there at the GATOR BOWL 24 times and won 6.

The Gator Bowl is in the middle of nowhere with nothing around it like EVERY other stadium.

The only team who embraces the stadium IN ANY SPORT are the Florida Gators which reside about an hour away.

Some stadiums are less equal to the others. This is one such. Some stadiums are glorious palaces to football’s honor. This is NOT one of those.

This is more of a depressing hole in the ground in a hellhole of a city.

This is one of the Doldrums of stadiums where even where we have to park is just all wrong even with it situated where there is nothing you can do pre-game or post-game nearby.

The stadium doesn’t even look particularly special.

The NFL franchise is very much in doubt because one JAX should NEVER have been awarded an NFL franchise as a dump of a city and because two no one wants to go to their stadium. This is a failed NFL franchise hanging-on by a thread.

Even the Gator Bowl has suffered where it once had prominence among Bowl Games because the stadium is now several decades out-of-date.

It was not a prominent top-tier stadium when it was built nearly a quarter a century ago now.

They have needed a new stadium in JAX but frankly can not afford to build one with the NFL franchise itself daring to move out to a different newer nicer fancier stadium elsewhere. If you were Birmingham and built a top-notch stadium the franchise would move there in a heartbeat. Maybe someone would even go the games in Birmingham.

It appears as a little cheesy stadium sitting by itself.

The tarps are certainly an eyesore.

 

It’s just not a classic stadium.

 

It’s a morgue going to the games there and has been for MANY YEARS now.

 

They’ve tried to put lipstick on the pig but the stadium sucks.

 

The bathrooms are awful.

 

The food you can buy is no good.

 

The view from the stadium inside and out is drab.

 

They could give-away 2 free Coca-Colas 2 free hot dogs 2 bags of free boiled peanuts a free parking pass to entice someone to come to the rickety old stadium and still no one would.

 

It’s depressing to go there.

 

Our WLOCP game there is in November hardly when you want to be in a pool people piss in.

 

The design is too wide.

 

If your seats are mid-field you are WAY away from the field in the upper deck.

 

There is no proximity to anything. JAX is the largest square mile city in the world which is NOT an advantage to going there where NOTHING is nearby.

 

It’s always raining and even when it is not it is a very poor tail-gating experience compared to say on campus in Athens.

 

If you are trying to tail-gate in a lot shielded by the overpass even there you are there by yourself with the parking lots EMPTY. It’s no fun.

 

It’s almost a thousand square miles. It’s just too spread-out.

 

Yet there are only 800 thousand who live there. What does that tell you compared to the 7 million who live here in Atlanta ?

 

That NO ONE wants to live there. That’s it’s NO GOOD there.

 

That the place doesn’t OFFER ANYTHING.

 

There are no parks there.

 

It’s not pretty.

 

The roads are horrible and not well kept.

 

The police are not friendly.

 

WE are the major event for the hellhole.

 

Jacksonville is nearly a thousand square miles while Riverside Park is only 11 acres. Eleven.

 

Riverwalk is only 2 miles of a 1000 square miles for the hellhole city Jacksonville.

 

The St. Johns River is not a pretty river in fact it looks poorly maintained to everyone.

 

Jacksonville is only the # 47 largest local TV market so even the folks who live there don’t watch the games from the stinky stadium.

 

Only the # 46 largest radio market Jacksonville pales in comparison to Atlanta’s new Mercedes-Benz Stadium for example.

 

Our game the WLOCP is more important to their economy than the Gator Bowl which began there in 1946.

 

There are only 2 shopping malls in Jacksonville. Two. And they are BOTH graveyards with poor choices because no one goes to either.

 

There is no MLB baseball team in Jacksonville.

 

There isn’t even a NBA basketball team there.

 

There is NOTHING there in JAX except for our game.

 

The Gator Bowl has certainly fallen-off in prominence as a Bowl Game.

 

Like I say it is OUR GAME AGAINST OUR # 1 RIVAL which is THE Major Event of the “city.”

 

Such as it is as a city.

 

They built the stadium 1995 over two decades ago coming-up on quarter of a century old for the NFL franchise and should NEVER have been awarded it. It will go away soon. Any day now.

 

Because of the stadium.

 

And because of the city.

 

Jacksonville is an Atlantic Sun Conference city.

 

Atlantic Sun.

 

Laugh out loud.

 

The airport is 13 miles away from the city and has less than 100 flights a day. Seriously. We have ten times as many people through our airport here in Atlanta than Jacksonville gets as tourists all year long.

 

The hellhole no one wants to go to and where nobody lives.

 

With no mass transit unless you count a 30 mph monorail with 8 stops.

 

JAX raised its taxes to pay for improvements there so every dollar spent helps make Jacksonville what it NEVER HAS BEEN AND NEVER WILL BE compared to say Atlanta for example.

 

Jacksonville Landing is 126 thousand square feet that opened just before the Gator Bowl stadium to support the Gator Bowl trying to make the hellhole JAX into a tourist destination.  A tourist trap for their FAILED NFL franchise. 126 thousand square feet. Puny. This is a tourist trap. Built as a tourist trap 3 decades ago and designed to be a tourist trap.

 

126 thousand square feet is two (2) acres. My yard is bigger than that.

 

Parking is across from the Landing not at the Landing.

 

The Landing is a little itty-bitty poor designed tourist trap built as a tourist trap and out-of-date by 3 decades now. Underground Atlanta built in 1869 is no longer viable but we support the Landing as Dawg Fans on what is the biggest event the entire city has. Us.

 

Now 3 decades later Jacksonville is TRYING to RE-INVENT the Landing. This means they are TALKING ABOUT IT BEING OUT-OF-DATE not that they have done A THING about it. Rape the tourists. Keep the profits do nothing.

 

Like the whole city.

 

It’s a joke. The “city” and the stadium. Keeping us there every year is a detriment to our football program and boon to Florida’s and to THEIR ECONOMY there – NOT here.

 

We put our players at a disadvantage to the detriment of what is in our best interests.

 

For them.

 

No other reason.

 

As their biggest event.

 

Jacksonville’s BIGGEST EVENT.

 

Us.

Athens Georgia is # 1 college football town. Auburn was never played at home for us. We played Georgie tek yellowjackets every year in Atlanta. Auburn was Columbus.

We played 23 of 24 games in Atlanta against Georgie tek yellowjackets from after the eighteen hundreds until several years after we had joined The SEC. We won 8 of 24 games. Some neutral game.

We played Auburn in places like Macon Atlanta Columbus Montgomery Savannah for 59 years until last in 1958. We lost not only the last 6 in Columbus but lost all the games in Montgomery never won in Savannah won only twice in 4 games in Macon and won only 4 of the 12 games in Atlanta.

We did the same with Alabama trying best as we could not to give Athens any revenue.

We also did the same with North Carolina again let’s play them anywhere but Athens.

Tradition ?

The tradition for UGA is to play our games NOT at HOME and we fixed that with every team save one.

World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party. I was the poster boy.

We all know why Florida fans want the game to STAY down there. We even have those of us who have been to JAX 25 times like I have for the game who paint some picture about themselves which disregards our coach saying every year before going down there that it is a disadvantage to him and to his team – no matter how popular our coach may or may not have been.

Now our Athletics’ Director who is STILL HERE who used to work on the staff at Florida and could answer the tough questions on this if pressed from the Florida point of view, has us at our worst in all sports we’ve ever been since he took-over at the behest of Mike Adam$ – nothing but a puppet and NOT that popular right now however high he steps. And he has capitulated on JAX as well.

We’ve lost 14 times in a row now playing our # 1 Rival in Florida in men’s basketball.

14.

If we can NEVER beat Florida we will NEVER achieve shit in ANY sport.

Mark Richt did NOTHING BUT COMPLAIN about playing Florida at the site of the annual Gator Bowl and then promptly went-out and lost 11 of his 16 games there.

There is NO QUESTION that we could play HARD-BALL with the Gators about this game and FAIL to take advantage of doing so. We negotiate like wimps.

It takes us 6 hours a tank of gas a cheesy motel room and bad seats in a decrepit stadium with temporary seats in a city I don’t enjoy like I do even in Daytona Beach an hour away with far better accommodations and restaurants and a far nicer beach. So why THERE instead of Atlanta’s new Mercedes-Benz Stadium for example ?  The DeSota Hotel in Tybee Island I prefer as well to all the cheap-ass bug-infested motels in JAX. And that also is a far better beach with again better restaurants too at Tybee Island than JAX. All the places I really love to go on Vacation by stark contrast and certainly NOT 2 days before November with it 46 degrees when no one wants to be in the stadium pool – supposedly the one claim to fame of the venue.

It’s just not our idea of a vacation spot.

So why purposely then totally disregard our coaches and players state they are at a disadvantage – not the least of which is again it was 46 degrees this latest season game day here and expected to be 90 degrees game time there. How can we prepare for that ? It is giving the Gators a decided advantage in us trying to acclimate to the humidity showing-up on Thursday. A day and a half while they live in that Hell Hole.

So that you can take a vacation in November in that God-Forsaken parking lot where we are even mistreated where we park.

WAKE UP !

Still I have been to the Hell Hole 2 dozen times to watch the game.

I feel like we are targeted the trip down there and mistreated in the Hell Hole when we finally get there worn-out.

4th and Dumb. Now that was a fun time to go. I said I was studying that week-end then was zoomed-in-on 3 times on TV. I maintained it was not I. But I came home with the 4th Down marker, which when we stormed the field, I stuck inside my # 17 jersey and walked-out with it between my legs straddling it very nicely thank you.

Las Vegas gives you a + 3 points home field advantage.

In Athens that is supposed to mean at least that. Over time, there is no question that we play better at home than not – and certainly giving-in to ANY advantage against Alabama, Georgie tek yellowjackets, Auburn, North Carolina and the Gators is a decision which long-since has been clear to MANY of us.

Why fix Auburn, North Carolina, Georgie tek yellowjackets, Alabama and leave the Gators as it is ? Because THEY want it there ?   The Florida Gators. Yeah them and our own fans who don’t give a rat’s ass about OUR Team as long as they get to party November in that awful place – like it is good for our players and coaches because the fans have fun in a different place.

Count me and many others like us, out.

I do not want them getting our revenue any longer.

Let them spend half the time coming-up here and giving us their revenue for say the next 50 years ? Or, at least home-and-home. Forget Atlanta. Athens.

If THEY want to play their game against US there at the site of the annual Gator Bowl, that is fine.

But our year is at SANFORD Stadium.

Or at Arthur Blank’s new palace. Look at what Arthur Blank is doing for sports here in Atlanta ?  Compare that to all the entire city of Jacksonville and what THEY do there by stark comparison ?

This is what I saw this day in sports.

Florida is a Favorite because the game is THERE.

 

http://www.vegasinsider.com/college-football/odds/las-vegas/

 

Mark Richt lost 11 of his 16 games at this site so he wasn’t going to win there. He told you that. He told you for 15 years that HE was a disadvantage there.

It’s the BIGGEST GAME of the YEAR for US and for the city of Jacksonville.

How stupid can we be ?

 

Thanks Arthur Blank for what you are doing for this city’s sporting events.  Sorry Florida Georgia is NOT one of them.  And on the same day we watched our men lose for the 14th time in a row down there in Florida playing our # 1 Rival there in men’s basketball today.

 

I sure wish we’d wake-up and do something about this injustice.

 

This is the impression this day’s 2 major events left on me.

 

What did you see today ?  That JAX should host us as their # 1 event for the entire city all year long ?

USA Today says Bulldogs Win SEC East 2017 with 6 SEC teams ranked Preseason USA Today Poll Top 25 and of course Texas A&M is the 7th best SEC team 2017 Preseason so says USA Today Preseason Top 25 Poll just released. SEC Down ? I don’t think so. ACC better Chip Towers AJ-C ? Only 4 ACC teams Top 25 for 2017 Chipper ole boy – not that I understood your comment today that “And by and large I think the SEC still plays the best football overall.” AJ-C DawgNation Chipper Towers says. If you are saying The SEC is DOWN Chipper Towers then say that. If you “think The SEC still plays THE BEST FOOTBALL OVERALL” then say that. It’s one or the other dumbass. It’s NOT POSSIBLE to be BOTH. Jesus Christ. By the way all preseason polls but 1 say UGA Wins SEC East 2017 while College Football News ranks UGA # 7 for 2017.

It’s pretty aggravating Chip Towers AJ-C DawgNation to read you say that The SEC is down and the ACC is better then read you say in the same post that it is NOT TRUE and in fact :

 

“And by and large I think the SEC still plays the best football overall.”

 

What do you tell yourself when you write such utter nonsense Chipper Towers ?

 

You’re so full of shit that you think you can GET AWAY with this yet AGAIN ?

 

 

http://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/ncaaf/2017/01/09/college-football-super-early-top-25-teams-2017-season/96119570/

 

You’re a wishy-washy son of a bitch Chipper Towers and always have been and always will be because you’re stuck being one of THOSE pussies. Be a man. Have some conviction. If you believe something then tell us you believe it. If you don’t then tell us you don’t. Don’t sit there contemplating your God Damn navel telling us BOTH you believe this and then in same freaking article TAKE IT ALL BACK and say you think the complete opposite contradicting your own friqin’ self saying “by and large you think The SEC still plays the BEST FOOTBALL OVERALL.”

 

Which is it Chipper Towers ?

 

Last year it was the B1G all year long was BETTER than The SEC. I debunked that. Now you write it is the stinking ACC oh wait no it is not it is “STILL The SEC.”

 

It’s ALWAYS The SEC.

 

ACC what a damn joke.

 

Oh. Wait. You said that Chipper Towers. Make up your God Damn MIND contradictory bastard.

 

You can’t have it both ways.

 

It is or it isn’t.

 

It isn’t or it is.

 

It’s NOT both.

Forty Percent 59 of the 146 Signed Scholarship Recruits beginning 2010 through 2015 were either kicked-off the team failed to qualify flunked-out never showed-up or quit which got us in such a mess that we did NOT have what we needed for 2016. Kirby is FIXING THIS NOW.

Is it true that Kirby was left little talent ?

 

I thought that Mark Richt averaged the # 7 Scout.com recruiting rankings ?

 

He did.

Were Mark Richt’s Recruiting Rankings overinflated with Signed Scholarship Recruits who besides not winning just simply were not on the team any longer ?

2013 Signing Class Mark Richt UGA :

 

 

(65)DE JC   Toby Johnson

(66)DE 27   Davin Bellamy – arrested DUI, suspended

(67)OT 31   DeVondre Seymour failed to qualify, at Hinds Community College Mississippi

(68)RB NR   Brendan Douglas

(69)CB 15   Shaq Wiggins arrested failure appear, suspended license.  Louisville

(70)WR 18   Tramel Terry – played one of his 4 years of eligibility at UGA then transferred to Jacksonville State

(71)S JC   Kennar Daniels-Johnson – one of a steady stream of defensive backs who just departed the program once Todd Grantham and secondary coach Scott Lakatos were hired.

(72)WR JC   Jonathon Rumph

(73)CB 19   Brendan Langley transferred-out, did not get a snap against Georgie tek

(74)RB 37   A.J. Turman – scored 2 TD each in 2 G-Day Games leading team then Mark Richt never allowed him to play and gave him not one single snap in 3 years so he quit the team and left

(75)OLB PG   Leonard Floyd this time he qualified he also overinflating Mark Richt’s Recruiting Rankings signing with Mark Richt 2 years after not qualifying on grades.  Bragged on signing him twice.

(76)DT PG   John Atkins – this time he came here and he was signed as recruit 2 years in a row and counted in Mark Richt’s Recruiting Rankings 2 years in a row overinflating Mark Richt’s Recruiting Rankings

(77)S JC   Shaquille Fluker – Safety – Transferred-out also to Jacksonville State for 2014

(78)S 34   Paris Bostick Mutually Transferred-out 2014 to Iowa Western Community College

(79)TE 15   Jordan Davis

(80)DE 53   Shaun McGee

(81)MLB 5   Tim Kimbrough – demoted by Mark Richt prior to last game of season 2015.  Was this because Mark Richt knew he had flunked-out on grades ?  Mark Richt never told us.  He never did on anything unless you caught him red-handed.  Only then would he come clean.  When the grades came out then Mark Richt left this for his replacement head coach to SUSPEND for the Bowl Game ineligible. After the bowl game Kirby Smart tried to get him prepared for Tim Kimbrough’s 2016 season.  But Tim Kimbrough refused to go to practice.  Then left the program rather than compete with Roquan Smith whom he did not think he could beat-out for the job.  He did not like being second fiddle to a younger player.  Now Tim Kimbrough IS GOOD and could have helped the team starter or not if he could pass his courses.  Too much work too to pass the courses ?  Once he figured-out his grades would not let him in anywhere to play his senior year he did nothing at all.  So he is eligible for the 2017 NFL Draft whether he graduated or even went to school 2016 which of course he did NOT.

(82)S 76   Quincy Mauger

(83)WR 57   Rico Johnson

(112)QB 8   Jacob Park very good QB whom Mark Richt never gave a chance to instead he played Greyson Lambert who cost Mark Richt his job so Jacob Park transferred-out too.  Mark Richt would’ve started Jacob Park against Kentucky 2015 had Mark Richt not run him off too.  Instead of Jacob Park Mark Richt started Faton Bauta at QB when Mark Richt had not given Faton Bauta a single snap at QB all season long.  In his 1 start despite zero snaps all season at QB Faton Bauta threw 4 interceptions and was NEVER pulled. Then Faton Bauta quit Mark Richt too and left the team as well.  All of this because Mark Richt could not determine who was a good QB.  He never could.

(113)CB 11   Malkom Parrish

(114)RB 9   Nick Chubb – All America as I see it

(115)WR 109   Gilbert Johnson Wide Receiver Signed 2014, failed to Qualify

118 signed scholarship recruits what a joke Mark Richt signed 118 Scholarship Recruits 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014  with all of these gone not playing for us.

 

2015 Signing Class Mark Richt UGA :

 

 

The 2015 Recruiting Class, Darnell Salomon is arrested felony burglary on recruiting invite here July 23, 2014. Going to South Florida now ?  So the beat went on, and the losses therewith.  Comes here on Recruiting Visit to visit Mark Richt to be a Commitment to Mark Richt 2015 and got arrested on said trip to visit Mark Richt.

 

Mark Richt could not stay out of the bad news between his losses to top teams and inexplicable losses to unranked teams every year and all the arrests and overinflated recruiting rankings of players who just went missing here at Georgia.

 

They did not play for Mark Richt and were not available for Kirby.

 

How have the remaining done ?

 

As a DIRECT RESULT of ALL OF THIS Mark Richt signed 29 Scholarship Recruits his 2015 Signing Class.  Mark Richt would’ve signed any Scholarship Recruit 2015 desperate as he was.  Mark Richt was so desperate by 2015 Recruiting cycle to sign anyone.  He was as desperate as he was to start a guy at QB vs our # 1 Rival he was 5-10 against 5-11 at the site of the Gator Bowl who had not taken a single snap at QB for Mark Richt all season.  Any Scholarship Recruit Mark Richt could sign 2015 he did desperate as Mark Richt was 2015.

http://www.scout.com/2015-football-commits?team=Georgia&minimumInterest=Verbal

 

29 Signed Scholarship Recruits Mark Richt 2015 but as with EVERY OTHER YEAR that was just overinflating Mark Richt’s Recruiting Rankings because they AREN’T HERE.

 

59 of the 146 Signed Scholarship Recruits by Mark Richt beginning 2010 were either kicked-off the team failed to qualify flunked-out never showed-up or quit.

 

40 percent of Mark Richt’s Signed Scholarship Recruits 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 fifty-nine of one hundred forty-six Signed Scholarship Recruits by Mark Richt beginning 2010 were either kicked-off the team failed to qualify flunked-out never showed-up or quit

 

Forty Percent 59 of the 146 Signed Scholarship Recruits by Mark Richt beginning 2010 were either kicked-off the team failed to qualify flunked-out never showed-up or quit which got us in such a mess that we did NOT have what we needed for 2016.

 

When Forty Percent of your Signed Scholarship Recruits which you GOT CREDIT for Signing Here starting 2010 end-up not playing for you 59 of the 146  –  you are NOT GOING TO HAVE A GOOD TEAM.

 

Mark Richt did NOT sign 146 Scholarship Recruits starting 2010 to play for us.  It was 40 % worse than the overinflated recruiting rankings Mark Richt manipulated.

 

Figure it out.

 

Kirby Smart is a LOT better recruiter than Mark Richt.

 

Why are we # 37 vs top 15 teams starting 2010 with the average Scout.com Recruiting Rankings of # 7 ?

 

http://www.cfbtrivia.com/cfbt_records.php?fry=2010&thy=2016&grk=on&gur=on&grl=01&grh=15&cres=1

 

Duh.

 

Mark Richt was not nearly the recruiter y’all bragged on him to be – was he ?

 

Mark Richt’s Recruiting was sketchy – wasn’t it ?

 

Why are we IN THIS MESS trying to recover from this ?

 

How have we done with the remaining signed scholarship recruits ?

 

This football program has not done well BECAUSE OF RECRUITING.  We thought we were getting the average # 7 Scout.com Recruiting Rankings but they were overinflated with players who DID NOT PLAY HERE forty percent who did not play here.

 

Kirby can and IS fixing this and that is ONE of the many ways a college football coach can be successful.  Did you know you can be judged to be a good college football coach because you have good players ?

 

It is ALSO how a coach can be FIRED to be # 7 as Mark Richt was in avg Scout.com Recruiting Rankings yet # 40 for Mark Richt vs top 15 teams.    If you lose to the top 15 teams with the # 7 average Scout.com Recruiting Rankings and throw-in losses to unranked teams in addition you get fired.

 

But was the talent really here ?  Did Kirby get little talent to begin with ?  Was Kirby in a hole talent wise ?

 

Kirby improved us over what we were doing in recruiting.  Will it translate to getting this program out of this hole ?

 

It was our biggest problem.  It has to help.  It cannot hurt to fix the recruiting.  A college football coach can be successful just by having better talent.

 

Did we really have better talent 2010-2016 or were we behind the 8-ball on talent ?  Why were we short on talent with the high average Scout.com Recruiting Rankings after 2010 ?

 

Because they were NOT HERE.  They did NOT play for us.  40 % of the signed scholarship recruits 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 did not play for us.  They played somewhere else instead.  Didn’t they ?

60    On-Scholarship for 2017 season I can document and have.

 

 

Walk-Ons :

Preferred Walk-On 2017 Punter from Marist Bill Rubright

LJ Hollomon is considered the # 23 best wide receiver in the nation 2016 and would have been ranked higher even than that had he applied himself in class at Newton County joining us as preferred walk-on 2017 once UGA Admissions accepts his transfer credits from an internet college.

David Marvin from Wofford while Wofford has not been very good he has personally.  Senior.   He is a great athlete a great soccer player actually a fine baseball player son of 2 professional athletes from Charlotte would be kicker and punter for most any team in America Transfer as a Graduate of Wofford gets his Masters degree from UGA this 2017 season.  Kirby enrolls David Marvin in classes the day after Fall Semester 2017 and counts toward 2018 limit of 85-man but plays every game as a Blueshirt.

Brooks Buce Preferred Walk-On 2017 Kicker/Punter 6′ 170 lbs. 11/12 Xpts 12/20 FG Long 54 Average Punt 36 yards Army Air Force Navy and Jacksonville State offered Brooks Buce Scholarship Miami of Florida wanted him to Walk-On there Greater Atlanta Christian Norcross 2-Star

Tanner Stumpe walk-on Kicker.

Rodrigo Blankenship Redshirt Sophomore 2017 Kicker Walk-On parents said staying that way for now

Cameron Nizialek Senior Graduate Transfer 2017 Walk-On 44.8 yd punt 53.6 yd K-O one year eligibility

Trent Frix Senior 2017 was On-Scholarship 2016 with Kirby himself August 2016 awarding it to him as a Walk-On at the time.  Trent then played 12 games including bowl 2016 and has 2 Varsity letters UGA and Academic Honor Roll.  This blog here UGA Thomas Brown . wordpress.com reported that Trent Frix WAS given a Scholarship for 2016 by Kirby in August 2016.  Whether he keeps that for 2017 would seem to me to be up to the terms of providing it by Kirby.  I can not document that Trent Frix is or is not on Scholarship for 2017 but it would seem he like some others here should be.  I have not read Kirby say Trent Frix has a Scholarship for 2017 or that he does not.

Christian Payne Senior is still walk-on 6′ 1″ 242 lbs. Starter

Glenn Welch FB Redshirt Senior 2017 as I see it  listed as Junior 2016 season however he was redshirted 2014 played in 12 games 2015 and played in all 13 games 2016 season. Either way he has a year left 2017 whether he is in fact a Redshirt Junior 2017 season as I see it or if indeed he is a senior 2017 season as listed at UGA. He has always been a Walk-on like his older brother Parker. Wayne County Jesup GA Highest GPA on the team every year both here and at Wayne County. Recognized as such by league office and by UGA. SEC Academic Honor Roll 2014 and UGA student-athlete Honor Roll 2015 is 6′ 3″ 239 lbs.

Prather Hudson Preferred Walk-on Redshirt Freshman 2017 Redshirted as Freshman 2016 5′ 11″ 188 lbs. RB Columbus Georgia

Tim Hill exhausted his eligibility TCU game as I see it. Senior Transfer Walk-on 2016 db who played 4 games 2016 season including bowl game after sitting-out 2015 for Mark Richt here so by my count his eligibility is over with his last game in college TCU which he did play in. Although he has a redshirt year he could take he has none since by transfer rules he had to sit-out last year so he is done by my count.

Billy Seward Redshirt Senior Walk-on 2017 redshirted 2013 played 2014 2015 2016 Center 6’ 3” 269 lbs. Oconee

Mitchell Wasson Redshirt Freshman 2017 Freshman K Walk-On Redshirted 2016 Lassiter 5′ 11″ 179 lbs.

William Ham Redshirt Sophomore K still walk-on played 5 games 2016 including last 2.  Lost his job as kicker to Rodrigo Blankenship and then after getting PT the last 2 games abdicated his role here and left.  Best of luck to William Ham and thank you.

Nick Moore Junior Walk-On FB 2017 Brookwood had tackle 2015 played 4 games 2016 walk-on still.

Steven Van Tiflin Redshirt Junior Walk-On 2017 WR played one game 2016 walk-on 6′ 1″ 207 lbs. Michigan

Thomas Swilley Senior Walk-On 2017 OG played one game 2015 one game 2016 walk-on 6′ 3″ 317 lbs. Cedar Shoals

Keyon Brown OLB Redshirt Junior 2017 who may be on Scholarship 2017. 6′ 3″ 257 lbs. Florida.  I believe I recall we provided Keyon Brown Redshirt Sophomore 2016 a Scholarship and he had played in one game 2016.  So I did NOT say that Keyon Brown is not on Scholarship but that I said that he WAS provided a Scholarship for 2016 and played in a game 2016 for Kirby.  I have quite a few I am listing as Walk-Ons here rather than list them as On-Scholarship whom I feel ARE OWED a Scholarship because I can not document he is On-Scholarship for 2017  – Keyon Brown is one of these – not one of the 60 I can document ARE On-Scholarship 2017 I can document but one of the beat writers should ask him if he is.  I think he is.  Rather critical if he is or is not.

Mirko Jurkovic Redshirt Freshman 2017 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. Listed at OL now 6′ 5″ 275 lbs. too small to play OL have to beef-up.  This is a PLAYER.

Joseph Ledbetter 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 last year 2016 so that is over.  This could have been fall-out for his brother’s woes.

Allen Williams Preferred Walk-on Redshirt Freshman 2017 Is 6’7″ 352 lbs. Redshirted 2016 Baxley OL

Jordon McKinney Preferred Walk-on Redshirt Freshman Dalton 6′ 187 lbs. DB

Joshua Moran 6′ 2″ 193 lbs. 3-star Preferred Walk-on Redshirt Freshman WR redshirted 2016

Daniel Gothard Preferred Walk-On Redshirted 2016 Redshirt Freshman 2017 6′ 6″ 324 lbs. Dunwoody

Frank Sinkwich IV Preferred Walk-On 2017 OG FB Scout team until Junior year high school great grandson Athens Academy 5′ 11″ 235 lbs. 305 bench 500 squat 24.5″ vertical leap 5.23 Nike 40-yard dash added 40 lbs. to get to 235. Not considered one of the 3300 FBS Division 1-A recruits by any service.  This is the first 2017 Preferred Walk-On made public.  None of the Preferred Walk-Ons for 2016 to Kirby have been awarded a Scholarship which is Frank’s fate as well unless he can make it as FB or long-snapper.  He did play some Center Senior year.  None of the men Kirby had join him in 2016 as a Walk-On were awarded a Scholarship either yet.  Kirby did give 3 Mark Richt Walk-Ons Scholarships August of 2016 Kenneth Towns who personally won 2 games for Mark Richt Tommy Long and Trent Frix for Special Teams.  It is unknown if Trent Frix Scholarship was just for 2016 or extends into 2017 unabated but his family does not really need it. Neither did mine.  Best of luck to you Frank.   And thanks for coming to UGA.

John Taylor Dooley Walk-On 2017 Wide Receiver state champ – wouldn’t figure hurting for money and certainly would be on HOPE scholarship ANYWAY.

Kolby Wyatt Preferred 2017 Walk-On 6′ 4″ 215 lbs. DE or OLB Shiloh High 1 year player last year 2016.

Wix Patton Preferred 2017 Walk-On TE

Stetson Bennett IV Pierce County Preferred Walk-On QB

So 60 documented On-Scholarship for 2017 who have not said they are leaving or had it said for them plus 23 Commits are 83 meaning Kirby has Two (2) Scholarships available both of which are long-since committed several times over including to Trent Frix and to Keyon Brown both possibly for 62 On-Scholarship 2017.  There will be more attrition.

 

18   Seniors Who will be playing as Seniors their last year of eligibility here 2017 then leaving

2     Redshirt Juniors

15   Juniors who have not said they are abdicating or had it said for them

5   Redshirt Sophomores

15 Sophomores

1 Medical Redshirt True Freshman again 2017 available as early enrollee slot 2017

3 Redshirt Freshmen Redshirted 2016 as an in-coming Freshman on Scholarship

1 Redshirt Junior Transfer 2016 Mark Richt gave scholarship to for 2017 who sat-out 2016

60 On-Scholarship for 2017 here already today

26 Commitments 6 of whom have signed their papers with Kirby for 2017 Scholarship and enrolled January 2017 and 20 more who have signed their LOI

86 On-Scholarship for 2017

+ 1 = 87 On-Scholarship for 2017 season David Marvin from Charlotte who last year as a Junior at Wofford kicked-off 56 yards per kick is On-Scholarship.

-2 remaining scholarships meaning at this point Kirby can sign -2 more with or give -2 scholarships to Walk-ons or to Preferred Walk-ons listed at the bottom here or to ones coming-in – several of whom he tacitly has already promised sort of.  A promise is not a scholarship.  A Scholarship is a Scholarship and we value those now when the UGA Football Program before now NEVER DID.

There will be more attrition.  Honestly the number is more than -2 because several of these above as I noted with EACH of the MANY were On-Scholarship HERE.

Scholarship – one of the 85-man limit snapshot. Can play.

Medical Redshirt – petition NCAA for another year paid by school but not counted in 85-man limit if for example injured before 3 games played before 2nd half of season. Can be several of these per student-athlete.

Early Enrollee aka Greenshirt – enrolls classes January uses available scholarship from the previous year if any under 85-man limit. Can play.

Grayshirt – recruited and offered full scholarship but not for current year taking sometimes part-time classes but not part of 85-man limit until the conclusion of the current season when in the Spring Semester the following year they begin their scholarship and only then can play.

Blueshirt – not counted toward current 85-man limit but against the following year like a Grayshirt is too but a Blueshirt can play by enrolling the day after the Fall Semester and taking classes.

Walk-On – not counted toward 85-man limit not on Scholarship.  Can play.

Preferred Walk-On – has no meaning whatsoever is just a word which gives comfort such as it is.  Can play.

These are Georgia Bulldogs 2017 preseason All-SEC 2017 preseason and any All-America Candidates come from this list for UGA.  If you are going to make a list preseason 2017 you will come from this list.  If you are going to be talked about for the NFL you will come from this list.  There is no doubt the 15 of the top 100 players in the nation JOINING this conspicuous group will make a name for themselves too by the end of 2017 season for Kirby Smart.

 

Our men went unnoticed last year.  These men should not have.

 

We did not talk about our players last year as coaches or as fans.  I will rectify that this season.  I just did.  You leave our men off YOUR list.  Go ahead.  It will just make you look bad.

I loved watching Tasha Humphrey play and our teams were great.  It was loads of fun for all.  We have several top players this year for us and next season are adding-in 4 of the very best players in the nation to them and will be great next season.  We’ve won several big games in a row to lift our spirits.

The Average of 3 Preseason 2017 College Football Polls show that Kirby is # 10 so far for 2017. 6 of the Top 17 teams in the nation are SEC teams for 2017 by yet another Pre-Season Poll. In the latest pre-season poll Kirby is ranked # 13 and # 10 in the other. Both pre-season Polls have the same 6 in the Top 25 from The SEC. In one Georgia is the 2nd best and in the other 3rd best from The SEC and in BOTH the BEST in The SEC East is Georgia. And in a 3rd Way Too Early Top 25 since Bowl Games over tonight NFL Draft has those who have Declared and since the vast majority of the teams have their Commitments for 2017 recruiting Kirby has Georgia # 9

Now that the recruiting commitments are all pretty much in for most of the teams except for last minute additions the preseason polls are already coming-out now projecting with those commitments how they fill-in the teams and knowing the schedules.  The polls do figure some of the commitments will be immediate help game 1.

 

Now that the Bowls are all over tonight and that those Declaring for the NFL Draft 2017 are known we pretty-much know what the schedules are who they lost off their teams how they did in 2016 who they lose and who they have coming-in for 2017 for immediate help.

 

There is a lot of correlation in the preseason 2017 college football polls so far.

 

6 of the top 17 for 2017 season are SEC teams again :

# 1 Alabama

# 12 LSU

# 13 Georgia

# 14 Auburn

# 16 Florida

# 17 vols

Kirby checks in at # 13.

 

I tried to pick-up this pre-season magazine yesterday but it was not there.

 

In the other Poll Sporting News :

 

# 1 Alabama

# 10 Georgia

# 11 LSU

# 14 Florida

# 19 Auburn

# 24 vols

Both pre-season Polls have the same 6 in the Top 25 from The SEC.  In one Georgia is the 2nd best and in the other 3rd best from The SEC and in BOTH the BEST in The SEC East is Georgia.

 

This guy is a TCU Fan who predicted TCU to be Top 10 for the season 2016-2017 over tonight after our PASTING of TCU in our Bowl Game :

# 1 “Alabama greatest dynasty in college football history 5 NC in 8 years something special no one has ever done” before tonight’s game

# 2 Southern California

# 3 Penn State James Franklin taking heat 3 losses 2016 including 5-loss Pitt 3-loss Michigan and to 3-loss Southern California

# 4 Oklahoma

# 5 Clemson loses Deshaun Watson

# 6 Washington

# 7 Michigan looked slow against also-ran FSU who lost 3 games 2016

# 8 Oklahoma State

# 9 Wisconsin

# 10 FSU beat by Clemson North Carolina who even UGA beat and by Louisville who even Kentucky beat

 

https://youtu.be/HomRc9Dl_sc?t=10

 

I believe you will see reflected that Ohio State will not be as hyped 2017 following their slow plodding team got smoked 31 to nothing in their bowl game despite all their talent.

 

Big Ten got pushed-around in their Bowl Games as they ALWAYS do by a LOT of weaker teams. 0-5 Big Ten East in Bowl Games 2016-2017 season which EVERYONE up there in Big 10 Country said was the GREATEST DIVISION in College Football. Cough Cough. No they are NOT.

B1G Big Ten Big 10 does this EVERY year bragging how great they are then their top teams are SMOKED beaten by weak teams and embarrassed on the national stage at the end of the season.  Do you see a Big 10 team playing tonight ?

Mercedes-Benz Stadium the world’s most expensive stadium all-time EVER anywhere for ANY sport hosts next year’s National Championship Game College Football Play-Offs 2017-2018 season and it opens in July.  I can’t wait to see it.

 

1-9-2017

6 SEC Top 25 for 2017 Kirby Top 10 but Kirby faces 11 of his 12 games before SEC CG and Bowl Game where he could lose any week. 2017 could get out-of-hand for Kirby with THIS TOUGH SCHEDULE if he does not BRING-IT Spring Practice from the first practice preparing the guys who he will end-up starting. That is just around the corner with early enrollees on-campus today. This season could go to hell in a handbasket in a damn hurry with this schedule. No Cake-Walk.

Adding to Nick Chubb Sony Michel and Jacob Eason along with Roquan Smith Trent Thompson Dominick Sanders Lorenzo Carter Davin Bellamy Natrez Patrick Julian Rochester Brian Herrien  Mecole Hardman Junior Isaac Nauta Ben Cleveland Lamont Galliard  we have at least one top ranked wide-receiver Jeremiah Holloman along with the impressive 14 top 100 recruits with him D’Andre Swift D’Marcus Hayes Isaiah Wilson Netori Johnson Andrew Thomas  D’antne Demery Justin Shaffer  Robert Beal and we have frankly an entire 2017 roster chalk full of excitement.

 

Easy to get excited about the most talented team my UGA Georgia Bulldogs have EVER assembled.

 

But wait just a minute.

It’s EASY-as-pie to see how Kirby is TOP 10 pre-season.

 

I have been saying this for some time here now on this blog that Kirby would be and now indeed is Top 10 Pre-Season.

 

Cake-Walk 2017 for Kirby all these games you can pencil-in a win over ?

 

Hogwash.

 

It’s a great schedule.

 

There is NO REST for the weary.

 

6 SEC teams are ranked Top 25 for 2017 and while Kirby is expected to be Top 10 pre-season I have been predicting here on this blog for some time and now is – 2017 is no Cake-Walk for Kirby given 11 of the 12 teams Kirby faces all could beat him before SEC Championship and before Kirby’s Bowl Game 2017. It’s as nice a schedule as Georgia Bulldogs have ever played. Well if you like getting-up for your Opponent every week all season long except for game 3 – it is a nice schedule. If your idea of a nice schedule is a Cake-Walk for Kirby 2017 he will NOT being enjoying such but he is Top 10 perched at the peak and nowhere to go but down Top 10 Kirby 2017 pre-season. I told you he would be. Now he is. 2017 could get out-of-hand in a hurry for Kirby with all the top opponents and one lonely cupcake week 3.

 

6 SEC teams ranked in the Top 25 for 2017 after looking at the commitments and Kirby is Top 10 while to end-up top 10 he would have to beat Alabama defending national champions in SEC Championship Game and would have to beat # 24 vols and # 19 Auburn and # 14 Florida. LSU is # 11 and then The Mighty Georgia Bulldogs are TOP 10 as I guaranteed we would be Top 10 preseason polls for 2016.

It seems like Kirby is going to have to play his freshmen from last year 2016 and these 14 in-coming who are top 100 overall prospects nationally of the 3300 FBS Division 1-A will sign 2017 four Wednesdays from now National Signing Day 2017.

 

While the recruiting class for Kirby 2017 will not be ranked the # 1 class by any of the services it is the top recruiting class for The Mighty Georgia Bulldogs ever with the MOST HELP in one class we’ve ever assembled.

 

Kirby gets Notre Dame 2017 at South Bend at Touchdown Jesus Mississippi State who played in a bowl game 2016 and Appalachian State who won their bowl game 2016 and were Sun Belt Champions at 10-3. Appalachian State gave the vols all they could handle in the opening game 2016 for both teams losing by only by 20-13 in overtime at Neyland so Appalachian State is not coming here to Sanford September 2 as some opening game warm-up for Notre Dame for us.

 

Samford is game 3 and that is the only game which is a breather September 16 for Kirby all 2017 season. If the players and coaches take any other game all 2017 for granted we’ll lose. 11 of our 12 games before SEC Championship and then the Bowl Game could easily be a loss.

 

Easily.

 

Kentucky was a Bowl team 2016. Vanderbilt was a Bowl team 2016. Mississippi State was a Bowl team 2016 too. Appalachian State was a Bowl team 2016. vols were a Bowl team 2016. In fact vols won their Bowl Game 2016 against # 24 Nebraska 38-24 and vols were # 21 in College Football Play-Off Poll 2016 by virtue of them beating The Mighty Georgia Bulldogs on a last-gasp Hail Mary. We ruined Auburn’s season 2016 beating them at our house but Auburn was still # 17 in the College Football Play-Off Poll 2016 and ended # 17 in both the AP and Coaches’ Polls after losing to # 7 Oklahoma in the Sugar Bowl 2016.   I’ve been to many Sugar Bowls through the years but Kirby certainly did not 2016 like Auburn.

 

Of course The Mighty Georgia Bulldogs are UNDEFEATED all-time against Notre Dame beating them at the Sugar Bowl. I went to that Sugar Bowl Game too along with a host of other such as Penn State and the one at the Georgia Dome.  I can’t wait to go to the most expensive football stadium and most expensive stadium all-time when it opens this coming July. But we have NEVER played at Touchdown Jesus nor them here.

 

Mississippi State won their Bowl game 2016 too and to get to the Bowl game 2016 Mississippi State beat Texas A&M and South Carolina and Ole Miss before beating Miami of Ohio in Mississippi State’s Bowl win 2016. So that is no gimme given our blow-out loss to Ole Miss whom Mississippi State handled AT Ole Miss by three times their score 55 Mississippi State 20 Ole Miss at Ole Miss. Texas A&M whom Mississippi State beat 2016 too was # 22 in both the AP and Coaches’ Polls for 2016 and Mississippi State beat them by double-digits.

 

I saw one Atlanta rag writer say just last week that Kirby is beating this team and that team and this other team and rattled off I swear 10 wins for Kirby before National Signing Day even is here. I don’t think folks know or realize whom it is Kirby faces 2017. He had it easy 2016.

 

2017 is no Cake-Walk for Kirby let me assure you of that right this second.

 

There used to be Southern Dance-Offs where the top dance combo teams would prance around the dance floor and be awarded a huge big cake for winning the dance contest.

 

2017 is NO Cake-Walk for Kirby.

 

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/7/7e/Lecon_de_Cake-Walk_-_L%27Entree.jpeg

(https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/7/7e/Lecon_de_Cake-Walk_-_L%27Entree.jpeg)

 

Samford is Kirby’s only Cake-Walk ALL 2017 season.

 

The participants in the Southern Dance Contests would find the last couple of pairs given an opportunity to do a prance around the dance floor before being named the winner. They pranced around in a Cake-Walk high-stepping it.

 

Kirby will be doing NO high-stepping 2017 before any game is determined on the field other than Samford.

 

Trust me.

 

Brian Kelly in his 7th year at the helm for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish beat Mark Richt’s Miami of Florida Hurricanes at South Bend 2016.

 

And while that may not surprise Mark Richt fans – both of them – that Mark Richt went to South Bend 2016 and LOST the fact remains that Notre Dame RUINED Mark Richt’s season 2016.

 

Ask Mark Richt.

 

South Carolina was a Bowl team 2016 and while they lost their Bowl game to South Florida South Florida was # 22 in the Coaches’ Poll 2016 and # 24 in the Final AP Poll. I think we all recall the game at South Carolina last year where they wouldn’t relent on playing it there in the 45 mph gusts. 5 passes ? STFU about 5 passes. It was miserable conditions for Jacob Eason and you know it.

 

South Carolina is a Rivalry Game to South Carolina and with Kirby’s best of buddies Will Muschamp picking-off the top Wide Receiver in the state of Georgia 2017 trust me Kirby and Will see this as a Rivalry game both of them.

 

While Mark Stoops at Kentucky beat all these teams. Mark Stoops watched us march into Lexington and was nonplussed with us losing by the slimmest of margins 27-24 The Good Guys. Mark Stoops went to # 11 Louisville and beat the shit out of Bobby Petrino who was # 13 in the College Football Play-Off Poll 2016 and # 15 in the Final Coaches’ and AP Polls. Mark Stoops also beat South Carolina Vanderbilt Missouri and Mississippi State. This is not the definition of a CUPCAKE.

 

No Creampuff.

 

No Powderpuff football team.

 

There are NO Cake-Walks 2017 other than Samford week 3 September 16 of 2017.

 

We had better be practicing with a PURPOSE Spring Practice # 1 because if we pussyfoot-around Spring Practice again 2017 this season will get out-of-hand in a hurry.

 

Did I mention Florida beat us ? vols beat us. Vanderbilt beat us. The damn yellowjackets beat us. None of them of push-overs for 2017 either.

 

It’s a fine schedule and one I am personally really looking forward to. But I like good football. Going 37-1 vs. non-bowl teams means little to me.

 

And Samford was # 24 in the FCS Coaches’ Poll for all of 2016.  Remember Nicholls game last year ?  This team is a LOT better than Nicholls last year.  Trust me.

 

Call one game 2017 a Cake-Walk or write one post about Kirby wins this game and that game and I will kick your ass from pillar to post.

 

This schedule could be headed for disaster inescapably and precipitately frankly EVERY week.

 

This 2017 Schedule for UGA The Georgia Bulldogs College Football I have NEWS for you is lousy with great opponents any one of which can beat us.  There is no stinking Cake-Walk Honeymoon or Throw-Away Year 2017 for Kirby.

 

I want to BEAT these guys on our Schedule 2017 and I know Kirby has the talent if he GATA Spring Practice # 1 which is not that far away with the early enrollees on campus today.

I can’t see how the men or the women can make the NCAA Basketball Tournament 2017 but the staff at Missouri react to their guy trying to take the ball from Yante Maten who just has passed 10 thousand points for us just before half in what ends-up being an important win for Georgia not unlike last night’s win in women’s basketball for Georgia beating Texas A&M a fine team and host yet another of the same tomorrow on SEC Network at noon Vanderbilt.

The Lady Bulldogs are just simply over-manned with just 8 players 7 who really play but next year we have a great recruiting class coming-in so we will compete next year.

 

The men who have the RPI to but with a bad record not deserving of an NCAA bid and they too are over-manned with just 2 players really.

 

But on this day it was Mark Fox’s coaching entourage who takes-up for Yante Maten.

 

(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h127FXukCLs)

 

10-5 might give the men a chance.  We’ll see.  J.J. Frazier and Yante Maten are a tandem the entire nation would enjoy watching play their team.

 

It is more desperate with the women who field a team of 4.

 

We just don’t have full teams although Mark Fox always has a better bench than the women of late.

 

1-7-2017

 

What we see in the recruiting is that Kirby HAS gone-out and gotten himself a big imposing highly-rated offensive line. This would tend to indicate that Kirby intends on standing-pat with Jim Chaney and this run-first mentality where we ask our QB to be a drop-back QB rather than sitting there surveying the defense from off-the-ball in the backfield. There are some nice wide receivers but mostly again 2017 it is the ones slotted for defense who seem to have the most potential to have a positive impact on the passing game the same as it was for 2016 and they did not play on defense 2016 and would seem impacted again 2017 by loads of experienced top talent ahead of them on defense again to even get on the field on defense. Once-again 2017 as 2016 our needs are far less on defense than at Wide Receiver. This despite the known fact that there is no doubt that the existing receivers have left much to be desired 2016 season. Frankly we have not had a passing offense at Georgia now 2014 2015 2016 and appear headed the same way again 2017 based on the numbers recruited to improve the passing game. And now we lose the one who led the team in receiving 2016. You also see this headstrong mentality in the fact that Nico Collins of Alabama is the top pure receiver we’re even a possibility for now other than Jeremiah Holloman Newton High who signed with Kirby for 2017 and Trey Blount 2 speedsters with height both ranked nonetheless about # 20 wide receiver available. We’re UGA The Georgia Bulldogs. We’re not the # 20 team in the nation and NEVER have been. Now I realize that really Chad Terrell is really about all else this state offers at receiver but what about going after guys like Joseph Lewis and Devonta Smith and Jeff Thomas ? Can we really stand-pat at wide receiver 2017 ? We sent 5 receivers out last year on plays when we were forced to pass. Do we really even have 5 reliable Wide Receivers ? Why don’t more top Wide Receivers want to come fill this clear void this team has again 2017 as it was 2016 too ? Remember all the Wide Receivers we looked at 2016 who went to lesser programs ?

I do not think we can stand-pat at wide receiver 2017.  I remain amazed that no top wide receiver is being courted other than the limited numbers we are getting at that position for many years in a row now.  Even knowing coming here he would be the # 1 target on every pass why is it that the kids seem more interested at other positions than the glaring hole at Wide Receiver and dearth of reliable targets ?

 

Ohio State has wrapped-up not only already a deep Wide Receiver corps but came into the state of Florida and snagged another who would seem to have so much competition there at Wide Receiver to make you wonder after their poor season 2016 getting pasted 31 to nothing in their last game after not even playing for the Big Ten title why not want to come here and be the # 1 Wide Receiver ?  Trevon Grimes of Ft. Lauderdale would rather throw his name in the hat at Ohio State with 10 top wide receivers already rather than come START here against Notre Dame ?  Why is that ?

 

What are WE doing wrong that our Passing Offense has been # 100 for 2014 2015 2016 and certainly headed that way AGAIN 2017 ?

 

Why are we the only team in America at ANY level who for 4 years in a row now 2017 can not even try to pass the ball ?  Why do these kids not want to come fill our KNOWN VOID at Wide Receiver ?

 

Is there ANY chance that a man as smart as Academic All-America here at UGA Kirby Smart really thinks that he can line-up on 1st down and run every time against him as defensive coordinator ?

 

Now I realize he only served one stint 2005 on offense ever in his lifetime but surely someone has his ear about his failed offense 2016 ?

 

Tee Higgins wants to go to Clemson to be Wide Receiver.  Clemson.  If Clemson why not Georgia ?  Have we given-up on passing the ball ?

 

Well we have we ?

 

Tylon Lindsey also wants to go to Ohio State as a top Wide Receiver 2017  ?  Excuse me.  Every wide receiver in the nation is already at Ohio State.

 

We better fix this in the next 3 weeks before Signing Day 2017.

 

What are you guys wasting your time talking about in recruiting 2017 and leave me to be the one to make the point to you ?

 

Flapping your jaws about nothing.

 

Jhamon Ausbon is at IMG Academy where we have signed others from and Texas A&M goes down there to Bradenton Florida and gets this Wide Receiver 2017 while we STAND-PAT at Wide Receiver with 20 Offensive Lineman here and 4 more defensive backs with all those returning for us ?

 

What are we doing ?

 

Jerry Jeudy of Deerfield Beach is going to Alabama and we can’t even talk to him about Wide Receiver here instead ?  Why is that ?

 

Why aren’t we considered a destination for Wide Receivers ?

 

Omar Manning is going to TCU and we can’t entice him to consider filling our hole at Wide Receiver ?  We don’t have a hole at Wide Receiver ?

 

We can stockpile those who might help at Wide Receiver such as Mecole Hardman Junior last year and DeAngelo Gibbs this year in the defensive backfield returning intact 2017 ?  How is ANY of this possible I ask you ?

 

 

Chad Terrell is the top Wide Receiver in this state according to many and he is going to South Carolina of all places.  Why ?

Justin Marshall is the 2nd best many say in this state at Wide Receiver and he is going to Louisville for God’s sake.  WTF ?  So is Corey Reed.

 

What are we doing wrong 2014 2015 2016 and now 2017 to not get the top wide receivers ?  We used to be able to pass the football.  Nowadays it seems we are content to line-up and run on 1st down every time all season long until it is proven you can’t do that in 2014 2015 2016 2017 and beyond with the talent even we have lined-up on defense.  Defenses stop teams who only run the ball.  It is a failed model in college and is not how the top teams in the NFL move the ball either.

 

You have got to have a passing offense to move the ball.  It would help if the Quarterbacks recruited were dual-threat.

 

We’re a losing proposition 2017 in passing the ball.  We’re behind the 8-ball and you and you would think Kirby Smart know it.  Certainly Jim Chaney has said December when Kirby finally let him talk to the media once before the bowl game finally admitting this as well.  This offense has NOT WORKED here 2014 2015 2016 and seems headed down the same road again 2017.

 

How can this be ?

 

How can only I see this ?

 

I dare say that it is NOT just only little ole I who see it but every opposing team all our fans all our coaches and many of the top RECRUITS at wide receiver.

 

Georgia doesn’t WANT to pass the ball.

 

If you try to concentrate on too many areas to work on for an 8-5 team you focus on none.

 

From my standpoint our offense is the most glaring.

 

We have to focus on wide receiver in my opinion.

 

I have to believe with the obvious FIT here for a top wide receiver frankly last year 2016 and this year 2017 even greater if that is possible that the kids must feel that Jim Chaney is not going to pass the ball.

 

Is there no one on the staff who can get through to Kirby that this model is once-again cramming a square peg into a round hole ?

 

Why not just call the offense the triple-option with both hands tied behind our backs on passing or even trying to pass ?  Every opponent loads the box. Wake-up.  We would load the box against us too.  It cannot win.

 

Is there a problem with college football as a spectator sport or what is being spectated live or other form is that Georgia for the duration of the current recruits high school football has all been that Georgia has no passing offense 2014 2015 2016 and now 2017 in their eyes the high school wide receivers  ?  For their entire time playing high school football UGA has been ANYTHING but a passing team.  We’re NO FUN at passing is all they know.  It’s all we know.

 

Who cares how they saw it ?

 

It matters not if ESPN gets revenue from TV for college football.  Good Lord.  That is OFF-TOPIC which is what I have come to know of the fool writing gtp get the picture senator of nothingness bluto.  Yet that what he talks about twice on 2 different blogs this morning like there is something inherently wrong with how the 2017 fan is entertained.  That he must only go to the game certainly heaven forbid watch the game on TV.  That’s wrong ?  Tell the 5 million watching us every week on TV on a bad week of TV viewing for us and 25 million at best to the 92 thousand who show-up.  We have not even touched our capacity of Sanford Stadium while all these lesser teams have expanded beyond our capacity to overtake us.  Now every game is on TV when in the past they had to pay to watch one game every year.  No longer is that the case.  The very ones with the loudest mouths on this or any blog all NEVER GO TO A GAME and NEVER HAVE.  Who cares about that ?

 

What matters is what is perceived by all collectively about our passing offense 2014 2015 2016 and as I propose more of the same for 2017.  You can wish and hope all you like but the WRITING IS ON THE WALL that 2017 is MORE OF THE SAME however witnessed live or not.

 

What I care about is us passing the ball.

 

THAT is the TOPIC of the DAY for Bulldogs’ fans not how we consume the product but that the product itself is FLAWED.  Good Lord wake-up talk about what is relevant for once in your life.

 

Act like even if by simply numbers that by odds you might even write one piece on-topic that day.

 

We have not recruited a top wide receiver in their high school lifetime and by all accounts may not have added more than 1 or 2 if any 2017.  1 or 2 maybe at best with 5 wide receiver sets when we finally get forced to pass 3rd and long.  Certainly those paid millions to answer that for us 2017 say we have not garnered our fair share of top wide receivers 2014 2015 2016 and 2017.

 

You know the ones who have so accurately predicted the top wide receivers and every other position ?

 

What we have really witnessed again 2014 2015 2016 and 2017 is that EVERY team in America has done a better job of getting wide receivers than The University of Ground Attack UGA.  No one can point to passing offense numbers 2014 2015 2016 and probably 2017 to refute this premise that the kids themselves have fallen into this mindset.  We have 20 guys playing wide receiver 2017 and 2 maybe 3 have above average credentials with 5 wide receiver sets when finally we give-up on that which does not work anyway and would not work against Kirby were Kirby to defend this offense himself.

 

Talk about that which is RELEVANT.  Cease with contemplation of your navel.

 

Does Kirby have a hole at wide receiver ?  Did Mark Richt 2014 and sign no one ?  Did Mark Richt 2015 and sign no one ?  Did Kirby 2016 and now 2017 as well do little to fill a void which has grown now to such a large chasm as for it to be painfully obvious to the very ones we seek ?  Does Kirby leaving Mecole Hardman Junior and now DeAngelo Gibbs at defensive back where we return intact send more of the same message ?

 

What is your Calling as a blog author supposedly covering The Georgia Bulldogs ?  To say that 25 million are wrong to watch on TV and 92 thousand only are right to join us ?  Or to say that Kirby has a PROBLEM – not 5 problems – but ONE MAIN CLEAR AND CONCISE PROBLEM so as to MAKE THE POINT if there EVER WAS ONE ?  That our offense is the issue and that We The University of Georgia have had for the duration of the recruits’ time in high school playing football has been wholly unable to pass the ball 2014 2015 2016 and I say 2017 as well.  That we don’t even TALK ABOUT IT.  But talk about anything but.  That we need wide receivers.  Is the problem that the 2016 OL was no good ?  We LOST them after TCU or did you think Kirby is playing true freshmen across the OL 2017 ?  This OL class 2017 fixes our passing offense ?  We have the QB who was least sacked in America 2016 and he can run the ball but isn’t. He also threw the fewest interceptions.  His receivers were not highly-rated did not get open did not catch the ones they were targeted with and have not 2014 2015 and 2016.   Jake Fromm play as True Frosh 2017 ?  Really that is what you think from Kirby given his proof otherwise even with the Little League World Series I saw him throw 2 dozen consecutive perfectly placed strikes in a row ?  That we have not been adding enough in numbers or quality 2014 2015 2016 and now 2017 instead ANYTHING but even with those who might help us at wide receiver.

 

Are they ALL RIGHT ?

 

Are the kids themselves right from what they have seen whatever manner they “saw” it their entire high school football experience ?

 

It is headstrong of The Georgia Bulldogs’ Football Program to ignore and stand-pat at wide receiver yet another year in a row now.

 

I wonder about our sense of urgency around here and conclude that we don’t any.

 

Any of us.

1 Medical Redshirt True Freshman 2016 who does NOT count 5 January 2017 :

 

1 True Freshman who played one play and was DOCUMENTED as injured during that 1 snap and could not return to the field 2016 so this is a prototypical MEDICAL REDSHIRT meaning he gets to play here 6 years like Kolton Houston of the 2010 signing class who completed his eligibility the game after Mark Richt was fired against Penn State.    2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 Six years On-Scholarship.  The NCAA screwed Kolton Houston over an archaic rule not written for his circumstance of PED then relented after the fact.

Solomon Kindley Freshman 56  in this one case this is a documented rubber-stamp MEDICAL REDSHIRT TRUE FRESHMAN 2016 who therefore does NOT count as On-Scholarship on THIS DAY 5 January 2017 meaning Kirby can NOW bring-in ONE MORE Early Enrollee since it is a foregone conclusion that the NCAA owes Kirby one MORE Early Enrollee right now today.  Counts as 1 of the 60 documented as On-Scholarship for 2017 for Kirby no matter what.  56.

If Kirby redshirts Solomon Kindley for 2017 as I expect then that will be his REDSHIRT year.  Neither 2016 nor 2017 then in this scenario I am suggesting here therefore counts toward his 4 years of eligibility.  And therefore 2016 does NOT count as On-Scholarship on THIS DAY either.

 

It is easy to be precise in this 85 list.  There are RULES.

 

If you have seen enough of the RULES you know what they are.  I have.  I do.  It’s not confusing.  It is cut-and-dry.  It is detailed.  The NCAA has a whole and completely SEPARATE group for this called COMPLIANCE.  They have a responsibility to do their job.  And they are NOT ALLOWED to drag their feet.  They can apply rules and take them back as in this case not applying but THIS IS NOT ONE OF THOSE CASES.  Kirby gets another EARLY ENROLLEE SLOT over this.

 

That will still leave him with 4 years of eligibility the same as Kolton Houston.   If you are redshirted you still get 4 years of eligibility to play.  If you get a medical redshirt that is on top of the 5 if you get a redshirt by the coach.    If you don’t get a redshirt from your coach you would then have 5 years without a redshirt but I see no reason not to redshirt Solomon Kindley 2017.   This means he will still have 2018 as then RF 2019 RSo 2020 RJr and the 2021-2022 season he CAN be On-Scholarship as a Redshirt Senior as you get that year if you are redshirted when the NCAA awards a medical redshirt year.  Since he GOT A SNAP 2016 that would seem a real possibility in Solomon Kindley’s case.  This is the definition of a Medical Redshirt 6th year of eligibility.  Frankly the NCAA owed Kolton Houston a 7th year of eligibility but felt giving him 6 was compensation enough.  The NCAA has awarded 2 Medical Redshirt years before.   Texas Tech center Tony Morales was awarded a seventh year of eligibility by the NCAA in November of 2016 two months ago.  He gets 7 years of On-Scholarship PAYMENTS for FBS football.  The Medical Redshirt year is a year in which the University pays for the student-athlete but is exempted NOT-COUNTED toward the On-Scholarship 85 DURING  THAT ONE YEAR.  He does count for 2017 whether he is redshirted or not but January early enrollee is NOT PART OF THAT.  And that is the purpose of this on-going list on this blog spurring Seth Emerson to write the list as I requested verifying THIS LIST by me by MY RESEARCH to list those On-Scholarship for 2017 now that 2016 is over.

 

Technically as I lay-out here Solomon Kindley is NOT 5 January 2017 On-Scholarship as he is MEDICAL REDSHIRT 2016 season which INCLUDES TODAY for early enrollee status.

 

A lot of words but this is most important that Kirby has ANOTHER EARLY ENROLLEE 5 January 2017 SLOT.

 

Technically as I lay it out here :

  1. 2016 MEDICAL REDSHIRT
  2. 2017 REDSHIRT year not counting as 1 of the 4 years eligibility either
  3. 2018 RF year
  4. 2019 RSo year
  5. 2020 RJr year
  6. 2021 RSr year

 

Got it ?

 

He can become a Dr. on the dole.  All 6 years for Kolton Houston he was On-Scholarship receiving payments in-compliance with NCAA Compliance and all 7 years for Texas Tech center Tony Morales the same is true.  There is nothing confusing or in-question about Solomon Kindley.  UGA does have to document this to the NCAA and get APPROVAL before it is a slot.  With the staff we have this should be APPROVED BY NOW but is NOT as of 5 January 2017 and that is the FAULT of Kirby’s staff and A.D. Greg McGarity.  This is their job.

 

We knew all this 17 September 2016 so we have known this for 3 months and 3 weeks.  Had the NCAA been sent their obligatory REQUEST for MEDICAL REDSHIRT September 17 we would have this open slot now.  The NCAA IS ALLOWED to drag its feet when being in a hurry is OUR FAULT.  An ERROR as big as this one costing Kirby getting a GREAT RB who just kicked-ass in the all-star game against all our recruits holding hands to stop him not turning in the REQUIRED REQUEST to the NCAA for Medical Redshirt status on September 17 of 2016 does NOT constitute a HURRY-UP for the NCAA.  It’s our fault.  It’s Greg McGarity’s responsibility TOTALLY.  Greg McGarity should have recognized this on 17 September 2016.

 

There is that just one number : 85.

 

There is NO OTHER NUMBER.  You are or aren’t.  Solomon Kindley was NOT On-Scholarship 2016 season and therefore IS NOT TODAY.  The University paid for Solomon 2016 but is EXEMPTED from counting him in the 85 On-Scholarship number.  Got it ?

 

We just got ANOTHER Early Enrollee slot because Solomon Kindley is NOT today 5 January 2017 counted as one of the 85 On-Scholarship when determining how many OPEN SLOTS there are for Early Enrollees.  It is NOT another Scholarship because 2017 he WILL COUNT toward the 85.  But today he isn’t.

 

3 Redshirted 2016 as an in-coming Freshman on Scholarship :

Chris Barnes Redshirted 2016 as Freshman 57

Ben Cleveland Redshirted as a Freshman 58

Chauncey Manac Redshirted 2016 as a Freshman 59

Rico Johnson medical disqualified doesn’t count as scholarship

1 Redshirt Sophomore Transfer 2016 Mark Richt gave scholarship to for 2017 who sat-out 2016 :

I believe I recall Mark Richt provided a scholarship NEXT YEAR 2017 to J.R. Reed who had to sit-out the 2016 year as a Redshirt Sophomore here at UGA since he was in the 2014 recruiting class and did not play with anyone redshirted 2014. Then JR Reed played as a Redshirt Freshman when he signed 2015 with Tulsa. This is a Scholarship committed for 2017 by Mark Richt. Redshirt Sophomore who will have 2 years remaining here. 6′ 195 db played as redshirt freshman at Tulsa in 2015. Dad Jake Reed NFL not J.R. Reed NFL db. This is our top recruit’s cousin DeAngelo Gibbs.   60

60 On-Scholarship today 5 January 2017 for 2017 season I can document and have.

Trent Frix Junior was On-Scholarship 2016 by Kirby himself August awarding it to him as a Walk-On at the time.  Trent then played 12 games including bowl 2016 and has 2 Varsity letters UGA and Academic Honor Roll.  This blog here UGA Thomas Brown . wordpress.com reported that Trent Frix WAS given a Scholarship for 2016 by Kirby in August 2016.  Whether he keeps that for 2017 would seem to me to be up to the terms of providing it by Kirby.  Is Trent Frix on Scholarship TODAY ?  Yes.  But Kenneth Towns and Tommy Long were both awarded Scholarships August 2016 by Kirby too and they are on Scholarship today too but as Seniors will NOT BE 2017.  I can not document that Trent Frix is or is not on Scholarship for 2017 but it would seem he like some others here should be.  I have not read Kirby say Trent Frix has a Scholarship for 2017 or that he does not.

Christian Payne Junior is still walk-on

Glenn Welch FB listed as Junior 2016 season however he was redshirted 2014 played in 12 games 2015 and played in all 13 games 2016 season. Either way he has a year left 2017 whether he is in fact a Redshirt Junior 2017 season as I see it or if indeed he is a senior 2017 season as listed at UGA. He has always been a Walk-on like his older brother Parker. Wayne County Jesup GA Highest GPA on the team every year both here and at Wayne County. Recognized as such by league office and by UGA. SEC Academic Honor Roll 2014 and UGA student-athlete Honor Roll 2015.

Prather Hudson Preferred Walk-on Redshirted as Freshman 2016

Tim Hill Senior transfer Walk-on db who played 4 games this season including bowl game after sitting-out last year for Mark Richt here so by my count his eligibility is over with his last game in college TCU which he did play in. Although he has a redshirt year he could take he has none since by transfer rules he had to sit-out last year so he is done by my count.

Billy Seward Redshirt Junior Walk-on redshirted 2013 played 2014 2015 2016 Center 6’ 3” 269 lbs. Oconee

Mitchell Wasson Freshman K still walk-on Redshirted 2016

William Ham Redshirt Sophomore K still walk-on played 5 games 2016 including last 2.  Lost his job as kicker to Rodrigo Blankenship and then after getting PT the last 2 games abdicated his role here and left.  Best of luck to William Ham and thank you.

Nick Moore Sophomore had tackle last year played 4 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.  So I did NOT say that Keyon Brown is not on Scholarship but that I said that he WAS provided a Scholarship for 2016 and played in a game 2016 for Kirby.  I have quite a few walk-ons here I document are OWED a Scholarship Keyon Brown is one of these – not one of the 60 I can document ARE On-Scholarship for 2017 such as J.R. Reed who was provided one for 2017 by Mark Richt to put UGA in position to sign his cousin DeAngelo Gibbs.

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.

Allen Williams Preferred Walk-on Redshirt Freshman 6’7″ 352 lbs.

Jordon McKinney Preferred Walk-on Redshirt Freshman

Joshua Moran 6′ 2″ 193 lbs. 3-star Preferred Walk-on

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

Frank Sinkwich IV Preferred Walk-On 2017 OG FB Scout team until Junior year high school great grandson Athens Academy 5′ 11″ 235 lbs. 305 bench 500 squat 24.5″ vertical leap 5.23 Nike 40-yard dash added 40 lbs. to get to 235. Not considered one of the 3300 FBS Division 1-A recruits by any service.  This is the first 2017 Preferred Walk-On made public.  None of the Preferred Walk-Ons for 2016 to Kirby have been awarded a Scholarship which is Frank’s fate as well unless he can make it as FB or long-snapper.  He did play some Center Senior year.  None of the men Kirby had join him in 2016 as a Walk-On were awarded a Scholarship either yet.  Kirby did give 3 Mark Richt Walk-Ons Scholarships August of 2016 Kenneth Towns who personally won 2 games for Mark Richt Tommy Long and Trent Frix for Special Teams.  It is unknown if Trent Frix Scholarship was just for 2016 or extends into 2017 unabated but his family does not really need it. Neither did mine.  Tommy Long and Kenneth Towns used up their eligibility against TCU.  Best of luck to you Frank.   And thanks for coming to UGA.

 

Do you get the feeling since you have not even seen the Preferred Walk-ons or Walk-Ons for 2017 except for this one that this is not the same roster The Georgia Bulldogs have EVER had ?

 

This is not what we are used to and thus so much research by me to get it right.  If I were a writer I would specifically ask certain players their status.  I used to go into the locker room.

 

It is a lot easier to keep up with this than it is to create it.

 

So 60 documented On-Scholarship for 2017 who have not said they are leaving or had it said for them plus 23 Commits are 83 meaning Kirby has Two (2) Scholarships available today 5 January 2017 both of which are long-since committed several times over.  But there will be more attrition.

 

Seth Emerson’s list 2 January 2017 also agrees with this list.

That blog by Seth Emerson he wrote the day after mine on 1-1-2017.  I did URL Link my post 1-1-2017 to him specifically.  He also suggests there will be more attrition too.  And thanks to our readers here on this blog tludlam

 

 

 

Thank you Mike BIG DAWG Woods.  It won’t be the same anymore.  This is a great loss.  Mike had heart complications.

For ten (10) years in a row The Mighty SEC which is the most valuable conference and the most accomplished conference and therefore the most influential conference had won the most bowl games each of the previous ten (ten) seasons in a row but The SEC has relinquished the most bowl wins 2016-2017 season for the first time after ten (10) seasons in a row to the ACC. The Mighty SEC has ALSO won the National Championship in College Football FBS Division 1-A ten (10) of the previous thirteen (13) seasons and it all boils down on that one to The NC Game Monday Night where the ACC is trying to win its 2nd national championship in football of the last 14 seasons. This would be a big boost to the ACC but it is of no consolation to the lowly Big Ten BIG who frankly was embarrassed on national TV after bragging all year long how great they are this season at just 3-7 in their bowl games AGAIN as the Big Ten B1G all-time ALWAYS has a LOSING BOWL RECORD. The Pac-12 which has NOT won the national championship in college football after 1972 John McKay Southern California also won only 3 bowl games this season as they continue to prove in the Pac-12 that they only can beat the lowly Big Ten B1G. The Big 12 Big XII won only 4 bowl games this season. So for the quest for the Most Bowl Wins this 2016-2017 season ACC has 8 wins SEC can only get to 7 wins Big XII had only 4 wins Pac-12 only 3 bowl wins and the lowly Big Ten B1G only 3 bowl wins after running their damn mouths ALL SEASON LONG.

Half the B1G Big Ten conference can not even play the game of football while The SEC this latest season has the Most Bowl Games by any conference with 13. Thirteen SEC Bowl Games this down year for The SEC is still 30% better than B1G who is The Mighty SEC’s bitch.

 

Last season 2015 the B1G did not even have a winning Bowl Record while The SEC went 9-2.

 

The year before last 2014 the B1G again was not better than The SEC in bowl games either.

 

The year before that 2013 The SEC went 7-3 and the Big 10 B1G went 2-5 in bowl games.

 

The year before that 2012 The SEC went 6-3 and the Big 10 B1G went 2-5 in bowl games again.

 

The year before that 2011 The SEC went 6-3 and the Big 10 B1G went 4-6 in bowl games.

 

The year before that 2010 and and the year before that year too 2009 The SEC better in bowl games than B1G.

 

The year before that 2008 the B1G Big 10 went 1-5 in bowl games while The SEC went 6-2.

 

We’re back to 2007 now B1G Big 10 went 3-5 in bowl games and The SEC 7-2.

 

2006-2007 Bowl Games shows The Mighty SEC is 6-3 and B1G Big Ten 2-5.

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2006%E2%80%9307_NCAA_football_bowl_games

 

None of these then latest ten (10) years of college football has ANY conference Won More Bowl Games than The Mighty SEC.

 

6-3 SEC 2006 Bowl Games

7-2 SEC 2007 Bowl Games

6-2 SEC 2008 Bowl Games

6-4 SEC 2009 Bowl Games

5-5 SEC 2010 Bowl Games

6-3 SEC 2011 Bowl Games

6-3 SEC 2012 Bowl Games

7-3 SEC 2013 Bowl Games

7-5 SEC 2014 Bowl Games

9-2 SEC 2015 Bowl Games

NONE of these latest ten (10) seasons has ANY conference won MORE BOWL GAMES than SEC.

65-33 SEC Most Bowl Wins 10 years in a row before 2016-2017 bowl season.

 

This ALL came to an end this season as ACC has 8 bowl wins this 2016-2017 bowl season and the most The Mighty SEC can muster would be 7 if The SEC can win its 11th National Championship in the latest fourteen (14) seasons.  And The SEC can get to 7-6 this bowl season Monday Night for yet again another winning bowl record SEC 2016-2017 bowl season.

 

The SEC Won the national championship in football :

 

2003 LSU NC

 

2004 *Auburn NC was undefeated and consensus # 2 every poll next in line since USC vacated nc game win

 

2006 Florida NC

 

2007 LSU NC

 

2008 Florida NC

 

2009 Alabama NC

 

2010 Auburn NC

 

2011 Alabama NC

 

2012 Alabama NC

 

2015 Alabama NC

 

 

 

10 SEC National Championships in Football starting 2003

 

 

 

Starting 2003 season The SEC WON football national championship 10 times

 

Big 10 B1G Big Ten once.

 

ACC once.

 

Big XII Big 12 once.

 

Pac-12 has NOT won the national championship in football since 1972.

 

 

Congratulations to ACC not Big Ten for unseating The Mighty SEC in Most Bowl Wins this season with 8 when the most The SEC can muster would be 7.

 

I have not heard anyone try to compare that the ACC is better than The SEC but the Big Ten B1G certainly ran their mouth all season long that they were this year and you saw how that ended for them in a BIG THUD with the most embarrassing loss by Ohio State 31 to NOTHING.  Then Michigan their 3rd loss of the season and another 3rd loss by Penn State this season.  That is the Big 10 top 3 teams this season. And of course Maryland lost of the B1G and Indiana of the Big Ten lost and vols SEC beat Big 10 Nebraska 38-24 while Florida SEC beat Iowa of the Big Ten B1G Big 10 by a score of 30-3.

 

7 losses by B1G Big 10 Big Ten in Bowl games this season 3-7.

 

 

 

So thanks for the laugh Big 10 and I have to point-out that I watched every damn second of the blow-out loss 31 to nothing spanking embarrassment of the Ohio State university B1G Big Ten Big 10.

 

 

Big 10 vs. FBS Power 5 Conferences 2016-2017 season now OVER for B1G 10-12 LOSING RECORD.

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2016_Big_Ten_Conference_football_season

 

This includes 1-2 vs. SEC regular season and 0-2 in Bowl Games NOW OVER for B1G. 1-4 season record vs. SEC for the Big 10.

 

Therefore for all the big mouths of the Big 10 bragging THEY were better than The SEC they were NOT. Now were they ?

 

ACC was better than The SEC this 2016-2017 season and ACC has a chance to unseat The Mighty SEC in NC Game Monday night leaving The down SEC with only 10 N.C. in the latest 14 years while the ACC could gain its 2nd NC in 14 years.

 

Or The SEC Alabama can beat Clemson Monday night and become NC for the 11th time in 14 tries Monday night for The SEC.

 

Georgia won its 30th bowl game for 3rd Most All-Time and currently is ranked # 2 nationally in recruiting 2017 while losing only Isaiah McKenzie expecting therefore to be a Top 10 team 2017. We’ll see.

 

SEC dominates in NC bowl games won revenue attendance recruiting NFL players fans merchandise Super Bowls media coverage sportswriters social media party schools hottest student bodies weather TV coverage ESPN employees clicks stories College Football Play-Offs blogs and The SEC has 11 of the top college football programs are SEC teams too.

 

So to put this to rest about B1G Big 10 Big Ten is better than The Mighty SEC 2016-2017 season then that is just a total lie.  B1G Big 10 Big Ten is great is just a myth  A Big Lie but is aptly named B1G Big Ten because 4 of their teams never play football worth a hoot.  Way to embarrass yourselves on the big stage Ohio State Penn State and Michigan.  31 to nothing.  Spanking.  Blow-out.  These are your 3 best teams.  One gets spanked whose coach says you can’t win the NC if you did not win your conference 31 to nothing.  And the other 2 drop their 3rd loss of the season in a conference of nobodies.   A conference who runs their mouth they are better than The SEC and then pulls THIS again this season.    You can’t beat your way out of a wet paper bag.  None of you Big Ten and you KNOW IT.

 

We show you every year.  Everyone shows you every year.

College football NATION blog ESPN just now

http://www.espn.com/blog/ncfnation/insider/post?id=135833

 

NATION BLOG ESPN just now :

 

“Since 2013, Deshaun Watson, Robert Nkemdiche, Carl Lawson, Montravious Adams, Arden Key, Mitch Hyatt, Demetris Robertson, Kyle Davis and Raekwon McMillan were just a handful of top 100 players in the ESPN 300 from the state of Georgia that didn’t sign with the in-state Bulldogs.

While Georgia’s recruiting classes during that period ranked 10th, ninth, eighth and seventh, respectively, Mark Richt’s staff was often criticized for those players that left.

Enter Kirby Smart.

The first year head coach, a former walk-on safety for Georgia, has made the state of Georgia a recruiting priority for the Bulldogs. His efforts are paying off.

In the 2017 recruiting class, Georgia has landed verbal commitments from four five-star players — more than any other team in the country. Of the five-star commits, three of them — defensive back Richard LeCounte III, defensive end Robert Beal and most recent commit, athlete DeAngelo Gibbs, are from the state of Georgia.

In all, Georgia has 14 ESPN 300 commitments from the Peach State including seven that are ranked in the top 100.

Despite the success in-state, Smart and his staff haven’t abandoned out-of-state prospects. Georgia has targeted a handful of targets from outside of Georgia’s borders. The Bulldogs went to New York to land five-star offensive tackle Isaiah Wilson and to Pennsylvania to land the sixth-ranked running back in the country, D’Andre Swift, and also got ESPN 300 linebacker and Alabama native Monty Rice to flip his commitment from LSU to Georgia recently.

With the recent commitments of Wilson, Gibbs, Rice and ESPN 300 safety Tray Bishop, Georgia is the hottest recruiting team in the country. Georgia ranks second, behind only Alabama in the team recruiting rankings and could add another few prospects before signing day including in-state ESPN 300 defensive tackle Aubrey Solomon.

The state of Georgia is loaded with talent, and with Georgia Tech, a team that runs a significantly different system than Georgia, as the only in-state competition. Smart and his staff are doing an excellent job of building a fence around the fertile recruiting state.”

 

1-4-2017

 

There is LITTLE we can do about where we ARE and certainly nothing which can be done about WHERE we have been. We could improve upon how we maximize ourselves. We can also control how well we recruit.

The most positive sign about The Georgia Bulldogs is our recruiting is significantly enhanced.

 

1-4-2017

Chauncey Rivers of Stephenson is being recruited by Alabama Ole Miss Louisville and chose Mississippi State to transfer to from junior college where Kirby sent him packing to on 12 May 2016 after his 3rd drug-related arrest after Mark Richt signed him here 2015.

So Alabama Ole Miss Louisville and Mississippi State want Chauncey Rivers of Stephenson to transfer to them from junior college where Kirby sent him packing to on 12 May 2016 after his 3rd drug-related arrest after Mark Richt signed him here 2015.

 

1-4-2017

 

REPORT CARD and this series William McFadden SaturdayDownSouth.com decides to write about the very damn day Kirby is # 2 recruiting class Scout.com saying GEORGIA ALWAYS is # 4. No we WERE not. We averaged # 8 for Mark Richt’s 15 recruiting rankings. He was NEVER # 2. Write about THIS William McFadden not who Mark Richt recruited in 2007. This is 2017. Kirby has out-recruited Mark Richt BOTH YEARS NOW and you KNOW IT William McFadden. We’re on the rise returning intact 2017 and adding 18 of the top 180 players 10% for just this one of 130 FBS teams 2017.

Who the HELL do you think cares about who Georgia recruited in 2007 or what grade some writer puts on some portion of our 2016 team in 2017 ?

 

8-5 SEC team with arguably our best recruiting class of all-time coming-in.  If you think you can show me a better recruiting class than the one we have 2017 I will be more than happy to compare it for you because there is not one.  With One (1) Scholarship left to give-out to either a Walk-On here now or to an coming-in recruit all we really need is a great receiver is needed to be added in the next 30 days for National Signing Day.

 

Either that or Kirby needs to line-up all 85 Scholarship players and have Jacob Eason throw them passes until they drop one and then remove them from the group and see who is left standing.  Whatever Kirby did to determine who Jacob Eason threw to last year did not work.  This might help you Kirby.

 

As for anything else before now there is little need now to discuss it.

 

Does discussing anything else about what is done really matter ?

 

What does it accomplish ?

 

This is where we are.

 

We were 8-5 for an SEC team and have our finest recruiting class ever at Georgia coming-in.

 

If you don’t know that discussing anything else doesn’t matter let me be the one to share that with you.

 

2017.

 

Long live 2017.

 

If you want to talk about resolutions we did that all year last year.  Each time one came-up.

 

If you want to talk about goals for this year I do believe that Bulldogs’ fans have had quite enough of the hype of our talent here followed by excruciatingly horrible inexcusable losses after losses to lesser-talented teams than we have had.

 

We’re not the program we want to be.  We are the program we are.  We aren’t who we were last year.  It is what it is.

 

Yesterday is a cancelled check.  Tomorrow is a promissory note.  Today is cold hard cash.

 

Does worrying about what has happened help ?  You have to have a goal.  If you do not any ole road will get you where you want to go.  You have to write that goal down.  You have to want it.  You have to commit yourself to your goals.  Sign it.

 

Check yourself against it.

 

The past ?

 

The past is gone.

 

The past is done and finished.

 

Live for now.

 

You get one go-round.

 

This is it.

 

This paradise.

 

The future is not pre-determined.

 

The future is now.

 

What is now ?

 

We’re an 8-5 team in The SEC who has everyone back but a joystick who led the team in his time here in fumbles and in drops and we are adding the best recruiting class The University of Georgia has ever had.

 

Do we have the greatest coach ?

 

What makes a great coach ?

 

Is it that he does everything in his process correctly and therefore maximizes the program ?

That did not work.

 

Is it that he got lucky ?

No.

 

Is it that he did not suffer injuries ?

No.  That did not matter either.

 

Is it that the coach was just plain unlucky ?

 

No.  You either win games and have that as your goal or you don’t.

 

Is it that there’s something here at Georgia besides winning that’s important ?

 

No.  We fired him.

 

If you play better players you will be a better team and THAT will make ANY coach a better coach.

 

Last year we suffered the Great Exodus of 22 recruits who made-up Mark Richt’s Dream Team.  They never did a damn thing here.  Every one of the 22 seniors who left after last season 2015 had STARTED for Mark Richt here.  They’re gone.  They had one game left after he was fired.  Collectively since the 22 who left prior to 2016 included Kolton Houston lost 24 games in 6 years.  They averaged 4 losses per season William McFadden therefore sir.  They are GONE.  They left BEFORE 2016 season.  We weren’t AGAIN therefore where we WANT to be.  WE can say that.  Can you about your team whoever it is ?

 

10 guys who had never played for Mark Richt got STARTS 2016 for Kirby.

 

Now we have 18 of the top 180 players in the United States of America 2017 coming-in coming here.

 

Have we bragged about our recruiting before as William McFadden SaturdayDownSouth.com maintains ?

 

You know ?

 

Steve Spurrier aka William McFadden.

 

All the talent and what happens when they get to Georgia ?

 

They lose to lesser talented teams.

 

Georgia ALWAYS has a # 2 recruiting class William McFadden MAINTAINS the very day we are # 2 in recruiting nationally according to Scout.com.  Yesterday.

 

Seriously.

 

One year.  One.  1 William McFadden we recruited BOTH Matthew Stafford and Knowshon Moreno 2006.  Mark Richt still did not start Matthew Stafford until game 8 that season after Mark Richt lost to Vandie in game 7.  He also redshirted Knowshon Moreno so that we got to see him only 2 years and then was the # 12 overall NFL Draft Pick in the nation.

 

We lost with them.

 

Mark Richt also in 2006 signed 27 players.  He had to.  He kicked off the others off the team.

 

None of the rest of the 2006 class had ANY other good players.

 

2006 William McFadden ?

 

It is the only class ranked # 4 by Scout.com by Mark Richt his entire 15 recruiting classes.

 

THIS IS NOT LIKE THAT WILLIAM MCFADDEN.

 

Ten percent of the top 180 players nationally are with one of the 130 FBS teams 2017.

 

Georgia gets 18 of the top 180 players when there are in fact 3300 players joining the FBS 130 teams 2017.

 

Kirby.

 

This is where we are.

 

129 other teams 2017 and 10% of the top 180 players are coming here.

 

If Kirby plays them we will be a better team whatever Kirby does else.

 

It is clear that the ones who have been here have averaged 4 losses per season for 9 years now.

 

4 losses per season for 9 years.

4 losses per season for 7 years.

 

4 losses per year.

 

The future is that the ones who Kirby brought-in last year 2016 and now this year 2017 have to be the ONES whom Kirby sends out there.  They have to be the ones PLAYING.

 

He does that and 2017 will be a better year.

 

The ones we’ve been playing haven’t been getting the job done around here for 9 years now.

 

Let’s move forward with 2017.

 

Losing 4-games a season with the average # 8 Scout.com recruiting ranking for 9 years has been wholly unacceptable.  It is NOT the # 4 class here EVERY YEAR as William McFadden STATES AS FACT which is a lie.  We averaged # 8.  Yes it is especially UNACCEPTABLE William McFadden that we’ve SUFFERED the obligatory loss EVERY YEAR for 16 years now this latest year NOW OVER to some cupcake with the # 52 average recruits against our higher-ranked recruits they BEAT.

 

We’ve talked about recruiting every year for 9 years.  Longer than that.  We’ve bragged about recruiting for 17 years now in a row.

 

What have they done these latest current 9 years ?  Not a damn thing.

 

So why worry about that ?

 

Why talk about that ?

 

Let’s get some new guys out there and give them a shot.

 

These guys are on a MISSION coming-in 2017.  They have bonded together as you have seen on TV.  They are ALL coming here together to DO SOMETHING.

 

That would NOT be 4-losses a year for 9 years as we are in fact on this day 3 January 2017.

 

What difference does it make what grade I put on that ?

 

What help does it do to say this group gets an F and this one a D ?  Or that one a C ?

 

It accomplishes NOTHING at ALL.

 

We’re an 8-5 SEC team who returns all but a joystick who led the team in fumbles and drops his whole time here and added the # 2 best recruiting class in the nation and our personal best-ever.

 

That’s where we are.

 

This is where we are.

 

It’s better than where we were a year ago when Kirby wasn’t even here yet for another two more weeks.

 

William McFadden I am very disappointed that you think you are going to do a SERIES on Mark Richt’s recruiting to rain upon our New Year’s Day Parade about our recruiting # 2 in the nation and maintain that EVERY YEAR Mark Richt signed a # 4 class ranking like he did in 2006 with Matthew Stafford and Knowshon Moreno 2 guys who NEITHER STARTED until game 8 after he LOST to  Vandie.  The rest of that class were ALL NOBODIES who did NOTHING here either.  AND THAT is the ONLY class Mark Richt had ranked # 4 by Scout.com of his 15 classes.  He signed guys and kicked them off.  He left Kirby NOTHING.

 

You can get the # 4 ranked recruiting class by OVER-SIGNING 27 in Mark Richt’s case 2006 and INFLATE your ranking by having 25 nobodies and 2 great players.  THAT is not what happened the day you decided to write a series about how Georgia ALWAYS gets # 4 class.  Here is a list of them by position after 2007 and list a bunch of muck-ups who did diddle-e-squat here.

 

You’re not raining on our New Year’s Day Parade about the HEADLINES that we’re # 2 in the nation 2017 in recruiting.  It’s inaccurate.  It’s NOT hitting the nail on the head.  It’s off-target to the news of the day that WE GEORGIA are # 2 in the nation recruiting and have added 18 of the top 180 players.  Not 2.  NOT every year.  Yes we’ve bragged before about our recruiting.  NONE were like this one.

 

Mark Richt did not William McFadden SaturdayDownSouth get the # 4 recruiting class EVERY year just 2006 and it just 2 players neither of whom did he start until game 8 and then just one of them AFTER he lost to Vandie who beat no other SEC teams and only 3 other nobody teams all of 2006.

 

Mark Richt averaged the # 8 recruiting class his 15 years here.  He won to begin with and LOST IT.  He’s gone.  His recruits are gone.  This is Kirby’s team and HIS RECRUITS.

 

Did Kirby do everything right 2016 ?

 

Look this is 2017.

 

We’re an 8-5 team in The SEC and we lost 22 who ALL started all 22 got starts for Mark Richt on his Dream Team Recruiting Class who ALL left after last year 2015.  We were 2016 season the # 93 team in the nation in who it was Mark Richt left Kirby on his 2-deep according to Phil Steele.  Phil Steele said Georgia 2016 had the # 93 team in experience in the nation.  This year we lose only joystick who led the team all his time here in fumbles and drops.  We return EVERYONE else and add 18 of the top 180 players 10% of the top 180 players.  Not 2 players but 18.

 

Play those and we won’t be 8-5 in 2017.

 

Who cares what grade is put upon a portion of a team who had no offense no special teams and a far worse defense than they had the year before too ?  Or the coaching ?

 

What does it accomplish ?

 

Does it alter where we are today 3 January 2017 ?

 

No.

 

We’re an 8-5 team in The SEC who loses only joystick who led the team in his time here in both fumbles and drops and we added 18 of the top 180 players to just this one team of 130 FBS teams 2017.

 

That’s exciting.

 

Write about that.

 

Do not write about report cards or Isaiah Crowell and Tray Matthews Mr. William McFadden of SaturdayDownSouth.  I looked up your bio by the way William McFadden and you HAVE NONE.  I looked up the site SaturdayDownSouth and it lists four (4) guys in the meet the guys page on your site.  You’re NOT one of the 4 your site says it has to WRITE either.

 

You know ?

 

Write about 2017 not about who Mark Richt recruited 2007.  It’s a false premise William McFadden that Mark Richt ALWAYS had the # 2 class the day Scout.com ranks Kirby # 2.  He averaged # 8 recruiting class and NEVER had the # 2 class.  Kirby out-recruited Mark Richt last year and now has obliterated him AGAIN both years.  Kirby is a better recruiter than Mark Richt.

 

Who gives a shit William McFadden about the 2007 recruiting class in 2017 ?  Or the lie that Mark Richt ALWAYS had the # 2 class because you’re JEALOUS AS HELL that Kirby is # 2 the very damn sucky day you start this series.  Is there any coincidence William McFadden that you write about Isaiah Crowell Tray Matthews Josh Harvey-Clemons Tim Kimbrough Damian Swann the very day Kirby is # 2 in Scout.com recruiting for 2017 ?  Sure there is.  It is YOUR VERY POINT William McFadden that either (1) recruiting rankings don’t matter (Sure they do.  Far more likely to do well and PROVEN.) or (2) that well when they get to Georgia they are all screw-ups MOSTLY ANYWAY.  You’re trying the day we’re # 2 in the nation in recruiting Scout.com William McFadden to rain on our New Year’s Day Parade.  And you FAILED.

 

Any truth that Georgia ALWAYS recruits like this ?

 

No.

 

Now it is the truth that WE HAVE BRAGGED BEFORE ABOUT OUR RECRUITING.

 

NONE of those classes were THIS GOOD and you know it William McFadden no matter how many Isaiah Crowell Tray Matthews Josh Harvey-Clemons Tim Kimbrough Damian Swann you write about Mr. William McFadden.

 

Write about 2017 William McFadden.  I don’t give a shit that you think you are establishing your credibility to state that Isaiah Crowell Tray Matthews Josh Harvey-Clemons Tim Kimbrough Damian Swann were bragged about before THE VERY DAY that Kirby is # 2 with 18 of the top 180 players 10 % for one of the 130 FBS teams.  You don’t write enough William McFadden to write about Isaiah Crowell Tray Matthews Josh Harvey-Clemons Tim Kimbrough Damian Swann the very damn day we’re # 2 in recruiting.  You’re kowtowing to the masses who ALL love to pick on Georgia for Isaiah Crowell Tray Matthews Josh Harvey-Clemons Tim Kimbrough Damian Swann and what we are as a program because THEY root for some other team.

 

Own up who your own team is.  Be proud of it.  I am.

 

We’re # 2 in the nation recruiting and return intact.

 

We’re obviously on the rise.

 

Talk about THAT.

61 On-Scholarship 2017 documented here now. 23 Commits 5 of whom have Signed here already now. There is one (1) left remaining available Scholarship by my documented count here on this blog. 5 Wednesdays from now 1 February 2017 National Signing Day. Kirby of The UGA Bulldogs Signs DeAngelo Gibbs of Grayson the # 2 best athlete in the nation. Gets the Commitment of Tray Bishop of Terrell County the # 9 best athlete in the nation. Kirby gets the Commitment of the # 9 Scout.com Inside Linebacker in the nation from the state ALABAMA from James Clemens High in Madison Alabama 6′ 2″ 228 lbs. with 4.62 Nike 40-yard dash Monty Rice ! Wow. Monty Rice is the # 221 best overall football player of the 3300 top recruits nationally going to the FBS 2017. This gives Kirby the # 2 best recruiting class in the nation 2017 Scout.com. And this is now our # 1 best ever recruiting class. Kirby also has the # 2 best average recruit in the nation with an average 4.04 Scout.com since Scout.com ranks Monty Rice as 4-Star obviously. Kirby can Sign 24 and has 23 with one day and 4 weeks to the Greatest Signing Day in Georgia Bulldogs’ history. 247Sports.com Composite has Kirby’s 23 ranked # 3 nationally a hair behind Ohio State and also has us with the # 2 average recruit at 93.38 *Top 100 Overall players in the nation regardless of position are 14 for Kirby including D’Marcus Hayes the # 14 best JUCO overall Scout.com and # 5 best JUCO overall in 247Sports.com Composite. I am extremely happy with the recruiting. One team has 10% of the Top 180 recruits and there are 130 teams 2017. Write about screw-ups of UGA past. Write about all the recruits from 2007 and add them all altogether and they are not this class – no class at UGA ever has been. Yes we’ve bragged about our recruiting before. NONE of them were this good a class EVER. Face it. This is our best recruiting class all-time here at UGA. I don’t care what they are ranked. We’ve NEVER added a class like this and YOU know it William McFadden. You ain’t raining on our New Year’s Day Parade William McFadden. Good try boy.

*Top 100 Overall players in the nation regardless of position are 14 for Kirby including D’Marcus Hayes JUCO. 

And Kirby has 17 of the Top 150 Overall players in the nation regardless of position.  There are 130 FBS NCAA Division 1-A teams 2017 and Kirby has 17 of the Top 150 overall.  And Kirby has 18 of the Top 180 with 130 teams 2017. One team has 10% of the Top 180 recruits and there are 130 teams 2017. Being highly ranked is a highly indicative indicator of future success.  Kirby does not lose commitments.  These recruits are far more likely to have future success than every team in the nation except one.  If you don’t follow recruiting you look like a fool.  UGA has ALWAYS bragged on its recruits but we’ve NEVER recruited this well as in 2017.  Honestly we have not recruited this well ever in our entire history.  You can not name a hole.  And Kirby has One (1) Scholarship in his hip-pocket left to give-out to one (1) more top recruit as documented in-detail on this blog or to a walk-on or preferred walk-on.  We have a few of those you know ?  Because EVERYONE wants to play with these guys.

1 Redshirt Sophomore Transfer 2016 Mark Richt gave scholarship to for 2017 who sat-out 2016 :

 

I believe I recall Mark Richt provided a scholarship NEXT YEAR 2017 to J.R. Reed who had to sit-out the 2016 year as a Redshirt Sophomore here at UGA since he was in the 2014 recruiting class and did not play with anyone redshirted 2014. Then JR Reed played as a Redshirt Freshman when he signed 2015 with Tulsa. This is a Scholarship committed for 2017 by Mark Richt. Redshirt Sophomore who will have 2 years remaining here. 6′ 195 db played as redshirt freshman at Tulsa in 2015. Dad Jake Reed NFL not J.R. Reed NFL db. 60

 

 

 

60 On-Scholarship today 1 January 2017 for 2017 season I can document and have.

 

 

 

 

Walk-Ons :

 

Rodrigo Blankenship RF K still walk-on parents said staying that way for now

 

Trent Frix Junior is still walk-on played 12 games including bowl 2016 has 2 Varsity letters UGA and Academic Honor Roll.  This blog here UGA Thomas Brown . wordpress.com reported that Trent Frix WAS given a Scholarship for 2016 by Kirby in August 2016.  Whether he keeps that for 2017 would seem to me to be up to the terms of providing it by Kirby.  Is Trent Frix on Scholarship TODAY ?  Yes.  But Kenneth Towns and Tommy Long were both awarded Scholarships August 2016 by Kirby too and they are on Scholarship today too but as Seniors will NOT BE 2017.  I can not document that Trent Frix is or is not on Scholarship for 2017 but it would seem he like some others here should be.

 

Christian Payne Junior is still walk-on

 

Glenn Welch FB listed as Junior 2016 season however he was redshirted 2014 played in 12 games 2015 and played in all 13 games 2016 season. Either way he has a year left 2017 whether he is in fact a Redshirt Junior 2017 season as I see it or if indeed he is a senior 2017 season as listed at UGA. He has always been a Walk-on like his older brother Parker. Wayne County Jesup GA Highest GPA on the team every year both here and at Wayne County. Recognized as such by league office and by UGA. SEC Academic Honor Roll 2014 and UGA student-athlete Honor Roll 2015.

 

Prather Hudson Preferred Walk-on Redshirted as Freshman 2016

 

Tim Hill Senior transfer Walk-on db who played 4 games this season including bowl game after sitting-out last year for Mark Richt here so by my count his eligibility is over with his last game in college TCU which he did play in. Although he has a redshirt year he could take he has none since by transfer rules he had to sit-out last year so he is done by my count.

 

Billy Seward Redshirt Junior Walk-on redshirted 2013 played 2014 2015 2016 Center 6’ 3” 269 lbs. Oconee

 

Mitchell Wasson Freshman K still walk-on Redshirted 2016

 

William Ham Redshirt Sophomore K still walk-on played 5 games 2016 including last 2

 

Nick Moore Sophomore had tackle last year played 4 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.  So I did NOT say that Keyon Brown is not on Scholarship but that I said that he WAS provided a Scholarship for 2016 and played in a game 2016 for Kirby.  I have quite a few walk-ons here I document are OWED a Scholarship Keyon Brown is one of these – not one of the 60 I can document ARE On-Scholarship for 2017 such as J.R. Reed who was provided one for 2017 by Mark Richt to put UGA in position to sign his cousin DeAngelo Gibbs.

 

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.

 

Allen Williams Preferred Walk-on Redshirt Freshman 6’7″ 352 lbs.

 

Jordon McKinney Preferred Walk-on Redshirt Freshman

 

Joshua Moran 6′ 2″ 193 lbs. 3-star Preferred Walk-on

 

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

 

The years of deserving to be an On-Scholarship football player at The University of Georgia are OVER unless there is just one sitting there being unused which is not where we are 1 January 2017 today. It’s not just the money involved. It is the prestige of in fact being an On-Scholarship Football Player at The University of Georgia. A player can earn a START even and still be a Walk-On. A player can be your STARTING KICKER and LEAD THE TEAM IN SCORING and still be a Walk-On. A Preferred Walk-On can see others given a Scholarship who were Walk-Ons. A signed recruit can be told there is no Early Enrollee slot with 2 open Scholarships for 2017 and that player can be one of what would have been one of our Top 50 players for 2017 and the most heralded recruit for Texas Coach Tom Herman. Let me say as a walk-on who was on the Dean’s List and on the Honor Roll every single quarter who did not need a scholarship that I would have loved to have earned a scholarship but I did not. So therefore I keep up with this. You purport to write about us as a beat writer and you could not be bothered to list who it is who is on Scholarship at UGA and who isn’t. Yes it is a lot of research.

 

You either are On-Scholarship or you are not. The days when those were given away willy-nilly are over. I remember when we had 59 whom Mark Richt recruited here as Scholarship Players whom he offered a Scholarship to come here and play for him who were ALL HE HAD LEFT ELIGIBLE to play against Louisville in the 2014 Belk Bowl in Charlotte. 59 of the 117 he had signed here as Scholarship Recruits who with a redshirt would have been eligible to play that game and there were none taken early in the 2014 NFL Draft either. That was a different roster mismanagement back with Mark Richt.

I mean WOW !

14 players ranked in the Top 100 when there are 3300 joining 130 FBS teams 2017.

And Kirby has 17 of the Top 150 Overall players in the nation regardless of position.  There are 130 FBS NCAA Division 1-A teams 2017 and Kirby has 17 of the Top 150 overall.  And Kirby has 18 of the Top 180 with 130 teams 2017. One team has 10% of the Top 180 recruits and there are 130 teams 2017. Being highly ranked is a highly indicative indicator of future success.  Kirby does not lose commitments.  These recruits are far more likely to have future success than every team in the nation except one.  If you don’t follow recruiting you look like a fool.  UGA has ALWAYS bragged on its recruits but we’ve NEVER recruited this well as in 2017.  Honestly we have not recruited this well ever in our entire history.  You can not name a hole.  And Kirby has one (1) remaining Scholarship left.

 

 

So 60 documented On-Scholarship for 2017 who have not said they are leaving or had it said for them plus 23 Commits are 83 meaning Kirby has Two (2) Scholarships available today 1 January 2017.
