Kendall Milton listed this morning as an UGA Georgia Bulldog in articles about Kirby’s recruiting. It’s Dale McGee recruiting Kendall Milton out in California. We haven’t done well in California. Kirby wants Kendall Milton while Oklahoma Southern California Ohio State even and Alabama whom Kirby just can’t get the win over yet all are drolling over him. Kendall Milton as UGA Georgia Bulldog ?

Kendall Milton listed for Georgia.

 

I do NOT believe it helps our recruiting of Kendall Milton to guarantee this morning that Kendall Milton is our running back.  I mean Kendall Milton has NOT said that.

6 of the top 10 states producing recruits are SEC states – the kids want to LIVE here not in frozen tundra states and California and Texas – NOT up North or Midwest. It can be argued that the state of Georgia produces WAY MORE than any state except California and Florida and rivals them and Texas EVERY YEAR NOW.

Kirby has been in the top 3 for 4 years now in recruiting and the reason for this is that the state of Georgia is a hotbed of college football recruiting itself ALSO one of the top 3 or top 4 states for producing top football talent in our high schools here.  That and Atlanta has 7 million residents now.

Georgia Tech has had two (2) Braun brothers earn all-acc honors on the OL Parker and Trey Braun. But Parker announced he is leaving to Texas and NOW Kirby went and stole Joshua Braun of Suwannee Florida for 2020 giving us 12 commitments looking very much like a 4th top 3 recruiting ranking 4 years in a row now for 2020 for Kirby.

It seems the new coach is NOT a hit with Joshua Braun or ANY other Braun.  Right ?

 

6-11-2019

11 of the top 25 ranked 2019 recruiting classes are SEC teams

The SEC has been and is The Number One Football Conference.  We play each other all season long.  This is why the top talent joins The SEC because they want to play the best and then go on to the NFL and do well there too.  Honestly there are players who do not want to play the best players.  They would rather run their stats up playing in easy conferences and well that is NOT The SEC.

4-star Warren Brinson DT IMG Academy Florida tells Florida he will sign with them and states will decide today then picks Kirby instead over offers from Alabama Florida’s Dan Mullen Miami of former Mark Richt (fired there and here by AD there and here) Florida State and Oklahoma.

301 lbs. 4-star Warren Brinson takes Kirby up to # 4 recruiting class 2020 and more importantly gives Kirby 4 of the top DL in the country right where we need them most.

 

6-2-2019

Mekhail Sherman signed by Kirby’s Dan Lanning # 11 best player in the nation overall Washington D.C. beating out Alabama and Ohio State. 33 offers. 5-Star. # 2 outside linebacker in nation. 3-year player then NFL early. 6′ 3″ at 234 lbs. Clemson Auburn LSU Michigan Oklahoma Notre Dame Texas Texas A&M Florida all had him as their highest-rated prospect too. Huge get. Committed 2020. Jumps us 3 spots in rankings to top 10. Also running back 4.53 in 40-yard dash Nike time.

Of course if you do not follow recruiting then well you are a complete FOOL.

Greg McGarity refuses comments firing one recruiter and suspending another without pay for a month after G-Day Game Saturday where something obviously happened other than Kirby’s worst G-Day turnout. Recruiting is # 10 today and hosted 5-star recruits after Kirby finished # 6 # 3 # 1 and # 2 before this with these PUNISHED RECRUITERS.

It seems to me that it is significant what they DID Saturday.

 

This is a VIOLATION rather than lack of performance.

Nick Saban comes in-state here in Georgia to snag the # 13 and # 18 best players in the state of Georgia 2020 commitments slight Stephenson cornerback and short McEachern wide receiver.

Anytime your rival in your conference whom you have not gotten a win against only loses to comes in-state to your state and steals your # 13 and # 18 best players in Georgia 2020 it is not good but Kirby has gone national in his recruiting too with significant wins in Alabama and in Florida along with North Carolina and Tennessee.

 

Georgia is 24- 40-3 all-time against Alabama.

 

Kirby has lost his 2 games against Alabama and Mark Richt lost his last 3.

 

Until we can do what Clemson just did to Alabama we will never be anything but second-fiddle to our big brother rival in our own conference.

Trezmen Marshall was already a commitment to Georgia so what does this mean ? It means Kirby has kept in-state a most important linebacker and multi-talented athlete whom everyone wanted like Alabama for example. Where does Georgia stand ? We # 3 recruiting 2019 with 18 commitments because we don’t have more Scholarships to offer. There are only 13 scholarship seniors. 2 Juniors and 2 redshirt sophomores. That’s how I see it coming down. Kirby might sign another recruit or so but he’s already over isn’t he ? So we’re talking about players LEAVING. Got it ?

Scholarship Seniors 2018-2019 season who must give-up their scholarship :

  1. DaQuan Hawkins-Muckle DL
  2. Jackson Harris TE
  3. Kendall Baker OT
  4. Lamont Gaillard C
  5. Juwan Taylor ILB
  6. Ahkil Crumpton WR
  7. Jarvis Wilson DB
  8. Deandre Baker DB
  9. D’Andre Walker OLB
  10. Jonathan Ledbetter DE
  11. Natrez Patrick ILB
  12. Terry Godwin WR
  13. Jayson Stanley WR

 

 

JUNIORS

J.R. Reed

Isaac Nauta

 

REDSHIRT SOPHOMORES

Ben Cleveland

Demetris Robertson

 

The 13 scholarship seniors don’t have to go but they can’t stay on scholarship as they have exhausted it and free those up for Kirby.  But they are the ONLY ones.

Next Wednesday 19 December 2018 number one inside linebacker nationally Nakobe Dean. “The culture. It is just Georgia Bulldogs have a similar culture as ‘Bama but it is a little different feel at Georgia. It’s a little more of a ‘homey’ feel. It is business but it is a little less. It is business.” ajc dawgnation

I don’t have to tell you how badly Kirby needs this linebacker do I ?

 

12-14-2018

What does that say that the # 1 and # 7 best players in the state of Florida choose Georgia Bulldogs ? What does that say that the # 4 and # 13 best players in the state of Louisiana both choose Georgia Bulldogs ? What does it say that the # 3 and # 21 best players in the state of Tennessee the # 13 player in Mississippi and the # 1 in Rhode Island all 8 select us out-of-state of our 16 commitments to push us to # 2 best class in America for the 3rd time in a row for Kirby in recruiting ? It says that Kirby’s recruiting is truly nationwide. THAT is what it says.

https://247sports.com/Season/2019-Football/CompositeTeamRankings

 

Kirby goes out-of-state to pick up three more top picks overnight :

 

 

John Emery Jr 5-Star running back the # 4 best player in the entire state of Louisiana

.

.

Rian Davis one of the 5 best linebackers in the entire nation from Florida

.
.
Makiya Tongue  one of the 15 best athletes in the entire nation from Baton Rouge
.
.
What Kirby is doing here in Georgia in-state is being recognized by the best players in the nation.  When did The Mighty Georgia Bulldogs EVER go out-of-state to pick-up commitments from 3 like this in one day ?
.
.
NEVER.

Fourth 5-Star Travon Walker added for next Fall with classes starting now 2 weeks and 5 days from now moving Kirby to # 4 class 2019 beating-out Alabama and Clemson for this state’s # 1 overall player and # 7 best overall in the nation who also is a star Upson-Lee basketball player. The other schools have a LOT more available scholarships for 2019 than Kirby but at 6′ 5″ and 270 lbs. THIS is MAJOR GET now 4 of the top 10 in-state and 8 of the top 40 in-state for 2019.

When our 4th recruit of this stature and 9th of the ESPN Top 150 pushes us from # 11 all the way to # 4 ranked recruiting class for 2019 – obviously this is huge.

Kirby now has 11 of the ESPN coveted Top 300 overall football recruits for the next recruiting cycle.  There is no question that Kirby is just way better than Mark Richt at recruiting.

Mark Richt was an easy-going guy who let whatever happens happen with his hands-off approach to football as unimportant compared to leading the boys to Christ.

The top football players like this just want to win and when for his last 8 seasons here Mark Richt averaged 4 losses a season Mark Richt was a JOKE among the top football players.

Mark Richt might have only left Kirby with only a dozen scholarship seniors 2018 but Kirby is certainly doing a great job of filling those damn few open scholarships for next year with the best available he can get with his hands-on approach to seeking and going-after with dogged determination the elite in-state and across the nation.

 

# 6 class Kirby 2016

# 3 class Kirby 2017 (one service has Kirby at # 2)

# 1 class Kirby 2018

# 4 class Kirby 2019

 

With the general lack of seniors provided by Mark Richt for Kirby 2018 of a dozen only we can not expect to remain the # 4 class nationally 2019 but Kirby is doing all he can do to fill the slots available with the best men.

 

Congratulations to  Travon Walker and to Kirby in our quest for our football program to be better than averaging 4 losses a season for the last 8 years of the Mark Richt era 32 losses starting 2008 through when he was finally FIRED for it in 2015.

 

Kirby has lost 7 games his first two seasons and averages MORE than 10-wins a season which Mark Richt did NOT do.

 

21-7 Kirby with one national championship game

19-7 Mark Richt at Miami of Florida

 

.75 win percentage Kirby whom everyone said would play Hell matching Mark Richt’s

.73 win percentage Mark Richt at Miami of Florida since we FIRED him here

 

When we FIRED Mark Richt Mark Richt told little Aaron Murray that he was SURPRISED he was FIRED.

 

Readers of this blog were NOT.

 

It was way overdue.

 

Mark Richt averaged the # 8 recruiting class. Kirby is averaging # 3 recruiting class.

 

The difference is Kirby is KEEPING his recruits AND they are far better at the top-end.

 

Mark Richt LOST his recruits because of his lack of control LOSING CONTROL of his God Damn FOOTBALL PROGRAM.

 

It was some kind of a God Damn JOKE among the Mark Richt Apologists that Mark Richt was somehow NOT RESPONSIBLE for the actions of HIS recruits. Sure he was.  Mark Richt was 100 percent accountable for the fact that 63 of his last 146 signed scholarship recruits were kicked-off the team flunked-out never qualified failed to show up or quit.  I kept a RUNNING LIST which MANY BLOGS posted to YOUR CHAGRIN.  You joked that Mark Richt did NOT LOSE CONTROL of shit you said.  I remember you said that Mark Richt was NOT responsible for this.  He not only was but was FIRED for it you God Damn Dumbasses.

 

Mark Richt has only won 164 of 222 games a .7387 win percentage when you add back in what Mark Richt did 2001 through 2007 inclusive his first 7 years here when we ALL me included were NOT on Mark Richt’s case because we were winning.

 

But we quit winning.  It started with the Alabama black-out game at home and Mark Richt NEVER recovered from being FAVORED TO WIN and being blown-out nothing to 31 at halftime on national TV.

 

It was quite the statement with Mark Richt looking like he did not give a shit on the sidelines.

 

Mark Richt knows he LOST CONTROL of HIS GOD DAMN FOOTBALL PROGRAM.

 

He let the coaches do whatever the hell they wanted to do and the players as well.

 

He didn’t give a shit.

 

.7387 is NOT as good as Kirby’s .7500

 

# 8 is not as good average recruiting ranking as Kirby’s # 3 and a half either.

 

I told you we would recruit BETTER AFTER Mark Richt was FIRED.

 

You said he wasn’t going anywhere.

 

THIS is what YOU SAID you God Damn LIAR.

THIS is what I promised you and guaranteed to you would be the case today.

To which YOU SAID I was wrong and you a better Bulldog than I because I dared to want more.

 

You said Mark Richt was the greatest coach we ever had.

 

I said bullshit he was and should be FIRED for what he has NOT DONE after 2007 his last entire 8-year period here.

 

I was RIGHT and you gave me HELL that I was wrong.

 

You were WRONG.

 

Weren’t you all those years of OUT OF CONTROL FOOTBALL PROGRAM MARK RICHT RAN ?

 

Weren’t you punk ?

 

Go ahead.

 

You can say it.

 

We all know.

 

YOU SAID and still try to that Mark Richt averaged 10-win season.  Bullshit he did.  THAT was the problem. In 15-game seasons for the top teams which we were NOT he average 9.6 wins a year.  Liar.

Of 196 games at Georgia Mark Richt won 145 in 15 seasons obviously NOT 10-wins a year.

.7398 Mark Richt win percentage at Georgia (32 losses after 2007 avg 4 per season)

.7157 win percentage 73-32 Mark Richt’s last entire 8-year period here

 

You slapped each other on the back and said BAN THIS BOY’S POSTS as he is NOT a Georgia Bulldog but a Georgie tek fan despite the fact that you know and did know I am and have been a far better fan than you ever will be of my beloved football program of my alma mater.  You just didn’t want to hear that Mark Richt did NOT walk on God Damn Water.

 

63 of Mark Richt’s last 146 signed scholarship recruits either flunked-out were kicked-off failed to qualify never showed-up or quit 43% from 2010 to 2015 just were NOT HERE for Kirby.

 

THIS is what they don’t tell you when they KEEP BRINGING BACK UP THIS MARK RICHT SHITHEAD COACH and why they don’t.

 

Mark Richt not only did not recruit as well as Kirby and I told you we would be better at recruiting after we FIRED Mark Richt and lost 63 of his last 146 signed scholarship recruits but as a direct result thereof lost 18 of his last 24 games against the top 15 time game # 42 nationally at that with # 8 average recruiting class and threw in for good measure 12 losses (12) to unranked teams time of game or for season 2008 until he was FIRED for it.  You did NOT want to hear that.  So here we are years later and STILL you try to SAVE FACE discussing MY FIRING OF MARK RICHT.

 

There is NO END to your bullshit trying to save face about you standing behind Mark Richt and defending him against me.

 

So not only does Mark Richt NOT RECRUIT as well as Kirby does but Mark Richt LOST CONTROL of HIS GOD DAMN FOOTBALL PROGRAM and couldn’t keep his recruits inline nor his coaching staff and got FIRED for it to YOUR CHAGRIN and to my complete vindication.

Willie McClendon All-Time Great Georgia Bulldogs’ Football Star’s nephew Warren McClendon accepts Kirby’s Scholarship offer at 6′ 4″ and 318 lbs. # 21 best offensive tackle in the nation.

Willie McClendon is way far up on my Favorite Bulldog of all-time list.

 

Warren McClendon is Willie McClendon’s nephew.

 

https://res-4.cloudinary.com/rivals/image/upload/f_auto,q_auto,t_new_profile/wrr0blbk3seywuhrpsrh

 

 

Warren had 18 scholarship offers before pushing Kirby’s 2019 class inside the top 10 in the nation.

 

Sam Pittman gained Warren McClendon’s Commitment for us over offers Warren McClendon has from Alabama, Clemson, Auburn, Florida, Michigan, Miami of Florida and Oklahoma.

 

7-17-2018

Zion Logue 6′ 6″ and 287 lbs. DE picks Kirby over Alabama and over Florida moving Kirby up from # 16 to # 11 for 2019 class of now 11 commitments.

Zion Logue is one of the top dozen overall football players in the state of Tennessee.  Losing Zion Logue to The Mighty Georgia Bulldogs is a major blow to vols.

California Golden Bears 5-7 both years Demetris Robertson was out there in the Land of Fruit and Nuts in San Francisco Berkeley with his 4.32 speed in the 40-yard dash with one 5-star one 4-star and the rest all 2 and 3-star recruits. I told Demetris Robertson not to go there. Welcome back.

Not Stanford.  2813 miles on I-40.  They do NOT play football there.  I told Demetris Robertson that this is EXACTLY precisely what would happen at California.  His brother Carlos it is said was TOLD by Demetris that two 5-7 seasons is NOT what he expected.

 

We had idiotic blog writers who since have quit posting who said that they did not care where Demetris Robertson plays football.

 

They wrote that BEFORE he chose California on his brother Carolos’ suggestion.

 

I wrote here that that was WRONG that UGA would be a far better destination in his profession.

 

I always wanted Demetris Robertson here.

 

I am vindicated.  Look at all the 5-star players he joins here at UGA Georgia Bulldogs.

40-yard dash time 4.55 seconds and 42.2 inch vertical leap puts defensive end commit to Kirby for next year # 1 player in the nation status which Justin Fields won for this year on ESPN recruiting ranking. Nolan Smith II is # 1 player on 247Sports.com Composite Ranking for next year.

Nolan Smith II is a fine young man who represents himself well when talking to the media and knows his senior season he is a target now overtaking an Ohio State prospect.

Friday 13th July 2018

I am sorry. Kirby thinks we do not need Kevin Harris with what we have now and that is hard to argue. Get over it. DeAngelo Gibbs lack playing time last year was altogether a different story. We did need him and I still want him to come back as I have maintained all along. How can Grayson hold THAT against us ? Gibbs left. That was his decision to lose 2 seasons and not one. Owen Pappoe does NOT want to be honest. He CLEARLY wants easy ride to make roster and his coach further stated that today. “I see all the great LB Kirby just signed and it would be easier for me to go to Auburn where all their LB are all seniors leaving. No brainer. Go to Auburn.” THAT is not DeAngelo Gibbs or Kevin Harris. That is Auburn is a WORSE team than Georgia so get to play. Top players do NOT say that. NOT.

I am NOT into pussies who LIE and who can not step up to the mic and say it like it is.  Plus when you run your God Damn Mouth like Owen Pappoe does daily then you GIVE AWAY your real reasoning.

 

Look.  People make up their mind emotionally.

 

Then they justify their position with EXCUSES.

 

If you don’t know this you know NOTHING about recruiting which is in all its glory selling.

 

Kirby has selling down pat.  He makes mistakes but honestly with what he does RIGHT he more than makes up for his mistakes.

 

If there has been a better recruiter I have NEVER witnessed it in all my life.

 

I wanted DeAngelo Goibbs and wanted him to play more too.  I want him to come back and lose just the one season last year not another this year.

 

I wanted Owen Pappoe.  He is just one of those God Damn pussies who wants easy street he says to get to play early never mind Auburn SUCKS.  Auburn is a HORRIBLE football team compared to UGA and will NOT beat UGA in the future as EVERYONE can easily see..

 

Grayson High drama.

 

It’s big stakes and rare bad news for Kirby who hasn’t given-up.  I did because I understand that Owen Pappoe is just one of those pussies who can NOT tell it like it is when all he wants is to play bad team at Auburn or NOT.  He doesn’t give a shit.  Kevin Harris ?  Owen Pappoe doesn’t care that Kevin Harris went to Alabama since he committed to Auburn INSTANTLY.

 

Do NOT lie to me Owen Pappoe.  DeAngelo Gibbs is completely a different story but Owen Pappoe did not say shit about that.  I would have.

 

 

5-3-2018

Get over this shit from pussies like Owen Pappoe who said that we had TOO MUCH COMPETITION FOR HIM HERE AT GEORGIA WITH A LOT OF GREAT LINEBACKERS WE SIGNED HERE while Auburn has ALL SENIORS on their linebacker depth chart – easy to go there and play. You are NOT overcoming that for pussies like that who don’t want to have to compete. He can STICK IT UP HIS GOD DAMN asshole and all the pussies like him Alabama and now Georgia are NOT LIKE THAT.

“I know Georgia brought in a lot of good linebackers.”

 

“I just look at Auburn and see that they would have a whole bunch of seniors leaving.”

 

“My opportunity there would be better than it would be at Georgia.”

We do NOT need any God Damn pussies like Owen Pappoe.

Deangelo Gibbs is NOT a medical issue and we ALL know that

This is not a medical issue. He did not get to play any of the last 8 games and barely played getting 3 tackles all year those on special teams. This is a misuse of talent. Whereever he goes to he will be a star and will play in the NFL as his cousin is our top returnning defensive player. His family have NFL bloodlines. I think we all know he is very good. This is a loss for us. I want him back. 1 wasted year is better than 2 by transferring. Kirby can’t really back down on this guy. He has a load of players in similar situations. Want me to list them all ? I think we all know who they all are. I guess we’ll have to move-on. I am sure Deangelo Gibbs would love to have the NCAA list this as a medical redshirt year but that is not happening. Redshirt also is unjustified. It’s just a lost year Deangelo. Come on back We all want you.

 

1-21-2018

Which 9 did Kirby have a scholarship for this January of his 2018 signees ? I picture 6 are working to earn spot on field 2018 and at least 3 might start.

  1. WR Kearis Jackson ?   if Kirby can’t recruit receivers then Kearis can’t start 2018 ? why ?
  2. QB Justin Fields – starter 2018 ? Kirby started freshman QB 2016 and 2017. broke index finger October should be ok already by now even though it is his throwing hand
  3. DE Brenton Cox – Kirby stole from Ohio State big coups I think Linebacker starter 2018
  4. OG Trey Hill – starter 2018 ? Kirby needs bulk and Trey Hill is that rotate in at least
  5. OT Cade Mays – starter 2018 ? More bulk for Kirby put in rotation for sure 2018
  6. DT Devonte Wyatt – needs to be in rotation 2018
  7. RB WR PR KR Zamir White – he needs to rehab ACL 2018 redshirt for CERTAIN
  8. CB Divaad Wilson – redshirt for CERTAIN
  9. C Warren Ericson seems to be a year off too small redshirt for CERTAIN

Boy we lose a lot.  Of course readers to THIS BLOG right here knew that before 2017 season began that 2017 was THE YEAR not 2018.  In fact in THIS POST last year I posted that I guarantee that Kirby WINS The SEC Championship 2017.  And I said THEN that Kirby loses a ton after 2017.

 

Now everyone wants to say how great Kirby is going to be 2018. I was right on target last year.  2018 is a new year now.

 

12-3

“Muck Auburn and LSU and Tennessee too.” Clemson Ohio State Alabama Notre Dame all wanted Cade Mays 6′ 6″ 318 lbs. # 16 overall best top national talent at any position and # 2 Offensive Guard in the nation. They all acted professional and Auburn LSU and vols did NOT.

What ?

 

I cannot image what would make anyone upset about any of that.

 

That is exactly how I feel too.

 

And you can quote me on that as well.

 

I can add a few choice OTHERS in there as well.

That ruffled feathers at Auburn ?

 

At LSU ?

 

At Tennessee too ?

 

Guess what ?

 

I could GIVE A SHIT what them there folks think.

 

First you pick on our player because he is our player.  Then you take exception to him replying to your bullshit to him personally.

 

Like I care what Auburn LSU and Tennessee fans think.

 

I don’t believe they come over here to see what I might have to tell them because if they ever did – they got a God Damn earful I can assure you.

 

Son of Kevin Mays 1st Team All-SEC Offensive Guard 1994 vols both Coaches’ and AP 1st Team.

 

Clemson Ohio State Alabama Notre Dame vols all wanted Cade Mays 6′ 6″ 318 lbs. # 16 overall best top national talent at any position and # 2 Offensive Guard in the nation.

 

Auburn LSU vols got on his bad side after he signed with us.  Poor babies Auburn LSU vols is all I can say.  I do not think it was wise of Auburn LSU and vols to piss-off this man’s man.  I am not having a problem with this although this will be the last statement out of Cade Mays for several years now what with him being a freshman and freshmen not allowed to speak for just these reasons.

There is nothing wrong with the early signing period. Aaron Brule said one full WEEK BEFORE early signing date that he was LOOKING AROUND not made-up his mind. Kirby did NOT boot him to the curb. Aaron Brule was OFFICIALLY a soft-commitment on December 13.

The early signing period is just for fine young men like Aaron Brule.  We all wish him the best but we turned our attention ELSEWHERE on December 13.  If you did not keep up with Aaron Brule then do NOT offer-up your opinion that Mark Richt was a nice guy to guys like Aaron Brule than Kirby is.

 

If Aaron Brule wanted to come here then he should not have been saying what he DID SAY December 13 about wanting to play closer to home and how much he loved Oklahoma State University too.

 

Aaron Brule also said on December 13 that he was DELAYING his decision until February 7.

 

The local rags just picked-up on this and see this as a Jesus’ birthday cancellation.

 

Guess what ?

 

It is ANYTHING BUT.

 

Try to keep up.

 

Bother to keep up if you are going to comment online.

 

Or not.

 

Make a fool of yourself in public.

 

There is nothing new about that with you.

 

Or your biases.

 

Why did we sign some we did at the last minute ?

 

Because WE READ TWITTER.

 

If you don’t want us to read it then don’t post to it.

 

Jesus Christ.

 

I have news for you about all the “commitments” December 25 – they ALL are the VERY DEFNITIION of soft verbal.

 

You just don’t know what soft verbal is.

 

Aaron Brule was THE very definition of soft verbal.

 

Best of luck.

 

We moved-on December 13.

 

What did you expect us to do ?

 

Ignore your word Aaron Brule ?

Early signing period so SEC would not poach their small local area. Look at UGA ? We went out and poached 9 players from exactly those places.

The SEC teams poached across this great nation quite well. In fact it appears to me that The SEC teams poached better under this scenario when so many coaches were unsettled this year. In fact coaches may be unsettled at this time EVERY YEAR.

The programs not doing well locally this year and their conferences left out of the College Football Playoffs this year appears to have WORKED AGAINST THEM.

 

Seth Emerson says as indicated in this article at this URL Link that they voted for EARLY SIGNING PERIOD so as to control better how they lose recruits to The Mighty SEC from their small little local area.

 

Look at Georgia’s class for 2018 ok ?

Oklahoma

Miami

North Carolina

Knoxville

Miami again

Charlotte again

Metairie Louisiana

Columbia South Carolina

Cartersville Illinois.

The very 9 locations who could ill-afford to lose out to The Mighty SEC LOST IN FACT THEIR TOP PLAYERS.

And some of them at the VERY LAST MOMENT pushed to make a decision while their local team just is left-out in the cold.

 

At THIS VERY MOMENT IN TIME – many with unsettled coaching staffs too as a result of their POOR PERFORMACES THIS SEASON compared to The Mighty SEC.

 

I thought The SEC was supposed to be DOWN ? 2 of the 4 top teams in the college playoffs are SEC.

 

We hauled in the top recruiting again here in The SEC.

 

We poached all over the nation against the very places who voted this early signing in to NOT HAVE THIS HAPPEN. Exactly that which they did NOT want to happen just DID. Look at Georgia.

 

This Early Signing Period did NOT work-out the way these small little local areas had hoped at ALL.  In fact it worked against them.

 

Look at Georgia’s 9 stars poached from these small little local areas where their brand of college football is NOT UP to the equal of two of the final 4 teams in all of college football January 1 Georgia in the Rose Bowl and Alabama in the Sugar Bowl – winners to face each other.

 

With BOTH Alabama and Georgia the TOP TALENT teams still standing.

 

Duh.

 

The rich get richer.

 

THIS has worked out exactly how the small markets hoped it would NOT.

 

Keep us from poaching your small little locales ?

 

Excuse me ?

 

It HELPED us.

 

Our class would NOT be anywhere near what it is as # 1 recruiting class without these 9 poached from EVERYWHERE but here.

 

Thank you.

 

I like the Early Signing Period.

Florida is going down.

 

Florida would love to have our recruits including especially Jacob Eason.

Kirby now has two (2) of the top 316 recruits in the nation for next year 2018 which is now the # 26 recruiting class for 2018. This despite we are the 3rd best state for recruits in the nation and despite the fact that we have 20 openings for 2018 representing the largest group of NFL Draft Picks 2018.

It is a really fine blend of existing talent and returning NFL Draft Picks for this 2017 season.

 

This one-year window.

 

Surely 2018 can not possibly be a better season for The Georgia Bulldogs in football not losing 20 who STARTED for Kirby after this 2017 season.

I remember the solar eclipse of 1979 which was 38 years ago in the Spring.   We were in Florida and watched with pinholes.  During the day it just turned into night.  Dogs and cats sleeping with each other.

 

 

 

(https://i.ytimg.com/vi/8RVb6M0mX5A/hqdefault.jpg)

 

236 p.m. next Monday 21 August total eclipse of the sun.  This is one going to be a total eclipse here the sun lining-up behind the moon where the moon appears to gobble-up the sun completely with a ridge of sunlight around it at 236 p.m.  If you put a pinhole in a white sheet paper and put your BACK toward where the sun was it will project onto a 2nd piece of white paper like when we watched it 1979.  I remember it well.

6:38 minute mark Full Solar Eclipse 1979 Helena Montana noon 1979 February 26.  How exciting.  Midnight at noon it was.

 

360 years when a complete solar eclipse comes to any place on Earth.

 

It will be midnight at 2:36 p.m. best places to watch ?  Pinhole to 2nd sheet paper.  TV.

Part of your problem in discussing recruiting is that you don’t know jack shit about recruiting and NEVER WILL. We are # 27 in recruiting 2018 and have in that recruiting class for next year one player ranked in the top 311 in the nation. One. We had last year 2017 fifteen in the top 100 nationally. Now we have one in the top 311 for next year 2018. We have 20 players GONE after this season and currently have only 84 on-scholarship because several FAILED TO QUALIFY 2017 and one was ARRESTED. That is 3 of the top 15 players in the nation Kirby signed here 2017 who are NOT here and who will NOT be here 2017. One who will NEVER be here. And NOW for 2018 WITH THAT as a backdrop Kirby has 1 of the top 311 players nationally 2018. Did you get it that time ? Kirby gets 20 more open scholarships for 2018 for the 20 players 2017 who are leaving all of whom were starters here for Kirby. We have to sign a full complement of 25 recruits 2018 and have only one of the top 311 recruits. We are in a world of hurt 2018.

You guys write blog post after blog post MAKING EXCUSES for 2018 recruiting and you know nothing.

 

2018 is our worst recruiting class of all time.

 

You are absolutely without knowledge of recruiting whatsoever.

 

You have no idea about which you write on recruiting.

 

See if you can follow this ?

 

(1) Kirby signed 15 top 100 players 2017

(2) Kirby has 1 commitment of the top 311 players 2018

(3) Kirby currently does NOT have a full complement of 85 scholarship players for 2017

(4) Kirby loses 20 who STARTED for Kirby here after this 2017 season

(5) Kirby is expected to have 4 more attrition between now today and 2018.

(6) Kirby has 84 on scholarship today and one open scholarship

(7) Kirby gets 20 more open scholarships for 2018 for the 20 players 2017 who are leaving all of whom were starters here for Kirby.

(8) Kirby has 4 more attrition expected between now and 2018

(9) 4 + 20+ 1 = Kirby has 25 Scholarships open available for 2018

(10) Kirby has one (1) top 311 nationally recruit committed for 2018.

 

What is WRONG with this picture besides your bullshit excuses about these KNOWN FREAKING FACTS ?

 

You just don’t get it and you NEVER will. Quit telling ANYONE that 2018 recruiting is just fine for Kirby.  It is anything but dumbasses.

 

7-26-2017

Kirby # 6 recruiting 2016 and # 3 recruiting 2017. Kirby is even # 2 recruiting 2019. So what is the problem now that Kirby is # 52 officially for next year 2018 ? What does # 52 for 2018 say about Kirby’s commitment to the recruits themselves ?

# 6 ranked recruiting class Kirby 2016

# 3 ranked recruiting class Kirby 2017 Scout.com # 2 ranked class

# 2 ranked recruiting class Kirby 2019

# 52 ranked recruiting class Kirby 2018

 

 

http://247sports.com/Season/2018-Football/CompositeTeamRankings

 

What is wrong with this picture ?

 

Kirby loses 20 who started for him after this 2017 season so the openings are there big-time after this 2017 season for recruits yet Kirby is # 52 for next year despite this drop-off in talent after this season with all these openings.

 

THIS is what is wrong with this picture.

 

This is quite the statement by the 2018 prospects to Kirby that Kirby just does not make positive statements about his 2016 recruits nor his 2017 recruits and frankly that Kirby has done all he can do to NOT play either.  Kirby is going to have to FIX THIS 2017 by PLAYING his 2016 and 2017 recruits because after this season all he is going to have are our 2016 and 2017 recruits – unless of course Kirby does in 2018 that which he has FAILED to do 2016 and failed so far to do 2017 either and that is PLAY HIS DAMN FRESHMEN – a  particular problem ONLY Kirby suffers from in 2016 fifty years after freshmen were not allowed to play.  Then maybe if Kirby PLAYS his freshmen from 2016 and 2017 here in 2017 then maybe Kirby can finally get some 2018 recruits.

 

Right now that is NO on all 3 accounts.

 

Nowadays Freshmen either make or break your team.  If you don’t play them your team SUCKS and if you do then your team is FAR BETTER OFF than if you do not.

 

Instead at The University of Georgia we have dimwits who call themselves our fans who say Oh don’t start a freshman at Georgia for God’s sake – no freshman ever did diddle-e-squat in The SEC ever.

 

What total hogwash.

 

Yet THIS is where we are 2017.  Kirby either plays his 2016 and 2017 OL recruits or frankly Kirby’s entire career is on the line.

 

We suffer as fans of a program here at Georgia holding our program back having NO EXPECTATIONS of our program and settling for mediocrity.

 

I don’t know what YOU call 37 losses the latest 9 years but I call it AWFUL averaging MORE than 4 losses a year for 9 years and NOT GETTING ANY BETTER.

 

Here we are with all these hosses to play on the OL 2017 and Kirby saying EVERYTHING BUT that they are the ones he will rely on but instead itty bitty teenie weenie little guys on the OL who could not even get on the damn field last year with that crappy assed OL we trotted out there last year.  So this year they are world beaters Kirby tells us all Spring then G-Day they SUCKED like I told you they would all last year and all this year so far.

 

The season – this SEC Championship Season for UGA – hangs in the balance on what Kirby does and does not do to get his hosses on the OL he himself recruited here 2016 and 2017 out there playing on the OL instead of relying on the back-ups to those who did NOT get the job done 2016 and damn sure did NOT show shit G-Day either.

 

Contrary to the every word out of Kirby’s mouth on the topic.

 

 

7-18-2017

Who gets to criticize the recruiting for 2018 by Kirby ? Are prospects feeling that Kirby DID NOT prepare his freshmen class 2016 and lost 5 games as a DIRECT RESULT thereof ? Is it KIRBY who has the MOST TO PROVE 2017 with all this talent # 5 most talented team nationally Kirby trots out there 2017. Some player has MORE to prove than Kirby ? ARE RECRUITS holding back 2018 FROM KIRBY ? Well are they ? 247 Sports.com Composite has Kirby at # 51 and Scout.com says Kirby REALLY only has 1 ranked commitment 2018.

After the recruiting class Kirby signed for last year one would have thought Kirby would be further along 2018 now but he is not.  Is this an indictment of Kirby by the prospects ?

 

I saw one blog here yesterday stated hey is it this player or that player who has the MOST TO PROVE 2017.

 

I think it is Kirby.

 

I think the prospects are sending the mandate that it is Kirby.

 

I have guaranteed SEC Championship for Kirby 2017 with top 5 most talented team in America.

 

But 2018 is surely looking AWFUL frankly isn’t it ?

 

And why is that ?

 

Why is it Scout.com states that all Kirby has for all of 2018 recruiting is one (1) ranked commitment ?

 

247Sports.com # 745 player a TE committed to Kirby last night.

 

Remember last year when Kirby had 15 commitments from Top 100 players ?

 

Well he has one of the top 325 for 2018 now and yet Kirby will have the MOST NFL Draft Picks after this 2017 season with 20 starters gone for Kirby from this 2017 team next year 2018.

 

 

http://georgia.247sports.com/Season/2018-Football/Commits

 

Are recruits saying that it is IN FACT KIRBY who has the MOST TO PROVE 2017 and not some UGA player ?

Zamir White ranked # 7 overall prospect nationally and the # 1 running back nationally 2018 has offers and is dearly wanted by Alabama Ohio State Notre Dame Florida Auburn Clemson Florida State LSU Ole Miss NC State North Carolina Nebraska Oklahoma Penn State Wisconsin South Carolina vols Michigan and Miami of Florida Mark Richt but Kirby Smart CONTINUES his GREAT RECRUITING and gains his commitment since we do lose Nick Chubb and Sony Michel after this 2017 season. His number is jersey # 34. He is 6′ 1″ and 220 lbs. from Scotland High who won the North Carolina STATE CHAMPIONSHIP 2011. It is 296 miles mostly out I-20. Zamir White is a good-looking fine young man.

We have a ton of success in North Carolina.

 

I know how that STINGS to ALL the colleges in North Carolina.

 

We ALWAYS recruit the state of North Carolina extremely well.

 

Kirby CONTINUES his successes in RECRUITING.

 

Kirby also has a GOOD defense.

 

This commitment moves UGA to # 10 nationally in average rank per recruit for 2018 giving us 7 commitments so far with a full class of 25 to sign since we lose by my count 20 who STARTED here at Georgia after this 2017 season as AVAILABLE SCHOLARSHIPS.  Our average rank per recruit jumped to 3.57 for 2018.

A coach can be judged to be a good coach if he PLAYS good players.  That seems to be a secret to some that that really does make the coach seem to be a good coach when he has good players.

 

I tend to be technical.

 

This 2017 season is so important for Kirby and it promises to be I think SEC Championship ending the 3rd longest drought in our entire history.  With the 150-year anniversary of collegiate football the year after next we have a proud tradition and a great school.

 

We do VERY WELL.

 

More than 4 losses a season for 9 years now today has to end somewhere and 2017 is IT.

Dixie Highway to Chicago is I-75. If you go anywhere by car you go straight here and even more so by plane. High School football is played here. THIS is high school football and we the hotbed of college football fans with more fans here than anywhere in the world. We are the Heart of Dixie and we are the Heart of High School Football and we are the largest college football fan base. You have to come through here and we’re The Empire State of The South. The Dixie Highway does not even go through Alabama.

With 20 out-going players who are STARTERS for Kirby 2017 – why is it Kirby has only one commitment for next year then a 5 feet 10 inch tall cornerback speedster ?

 

Can ANYONE help me understand this disconnect please ?

 

We host the national championship in college football this season at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium the World’s Most Expensive Stadium ever yet we as the King of College Football have one commitment for 2018 with 20 Starters from this 2017 team gone after this season.

 

One commitment.

 

Some teams have 17 commitments.

 

Some teams have 15 commitments and some 13 commitments and we have one.

 

Surely the players know we lose 20 STARTERS after 2017 and need their commitment right ?

Starting 1942 at least one Georgia Bulldog has been selected in 75 Consecutive NFL Drafts – except for ONLY 1992 as Isaiah McKenzie whose grades would not let him play in 2017 is Drafted by the Denver Broncos to be # 316 Georgia Bulldog NFL Draft Pick which is # 14 All-Time in NFL Draft Picks for Georgia. The Mighty SEC had the most 1st Round Picks most 2nd Round Picks most 3rd Round Picks most 4th Round Picks and the MOST NFL DRAFT PICKS with 53 while the Big Ten BIG only had 35 – the Pac-12 only 36 – and the ACC only 43. Does UGA deserve the criticism that West Georgia had 2 NFL Draft Picks and The Mighty Georgia Bulldogs one ?

 

American Heritage High in Miami Florida Isaiah McKenzie.  Denver has now taken 14 Georgia Bulldogs in the NFL Draft the 2nd most ever for the Broncos from any school.  I hope that he does not embarrass us off-the-field which I will predict will happen and not because of his bad hands but that will be an issue as well as his treatment of women.  I realize Denver is the worst NFL team for explosive players and Isaiah McKenzie can scoot.  It’s just that he catches the ball against his chest not using his hands.

 

As for Isaiah McKenzie taking a chance to declare he had no choice having FLUNKED-OUT like Tim Kimbrough did and was not eligible. I know we lost NOTHING in losing him while The SEC lost a ton of talent across the board except for Georgia who better win 10 games 2017 and make it to Atlanta as SEC East Champions.

 

2017 should be a top year for Georgia Bulldog fans that is if Kirby actually practices and plays his top talent instead of criticizing all of them and then throwing them into the fire anyway unprepared.  I cringe to hear Kirby criticize everyone seriously.  Rodney Garner did that here and lacked success as a result.  You DO congratulate them Kirby when they do what you WANT THEM TO DO.  Kirby could use a psychology class or 2.

 

It is hard to get overly excited about 2017 DESPITE ALL THIS TALENT as poorly as Kirby COACHED last year 2016 and he was horrid at everything but defense and recruiting while 2018 he has one commitment to replace 17 STARTERS 2017 who go in the NFL Draft 2018 right after the 2017 season for Kirby.

 

Next year’s NFL Draft 2018 will feature DOUBLE-DIGIT NFL Draft Picks and the MOST in The SEC for The Georgia Bulldogs.

 

But what will Kirby do with all this talent 2017 ?

 

Surely no one can point to 2018 with that recruiting class so bad and inexcusable with all this talent gone after 2017.

 

Wave the red flag.

 

The SEC remains the DOMINANT college football conference once again.

 

The Mighty SEC :

the most 1st Round Picks

most 2nd Round Picks

most 3rd Round Picks

most 4th Round Picks

MOST NFL DRAFT PICKS with 53

Big Ten BIG only had 35

Pac-12 only 36

ACC only 43.

 

Georgia Georgia Southern Georgia State and the trade school downtown in the slums all had a player drafted in the 2017 NFL Draft.

 

The state of Georgia produces the 4th most NFL Draft Picks with California 40 million population Texas 28 million Florida 20 million and Georgia’s population only 11 million.

 

Tim Kimbrough went undrafted.

 

None of our offensive linemen were drafted.  I could have told you that watching them last year and we redshirted all 3 of our top OL singees and have moved NONE of them up to the starting line-up either.

 

Yes West Georgia had 2 drafted Mark Schlabach Patrick Schmidt and Bob Miller but Kirby still did a poor job coaching except for defense and recruiting 2016.  Kirby is likely to NOT practice his youth in the Fall with the # 1 unit then have to throw them into the fire without experience as he did 2016 knowing full well that the last remnants of Mark Richt’s DREAM TEAM left after 2015 season when Mark Richt was FIRED by Greg McGarity.  And while 2017 was our best recruiting class all-time # 2 by Scout.com # 3 by everyone else such as ESPN RecruitingNationn and 247Sports.com Kirby has completely dropped the ball with only one commit 2018 and he has 17 SENIOR STARTERS 2017.

 

Bob Miller son writing “TRANSFERRED” hardly tells the facts of Mark Richt’s recruits his last years here :

 

Is it true that Kirby was left little talent ?

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

He did.

They just were not here for us.

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

Absolutely.  Here is the proof.

2013 Recruiting Class for Mark Richt was the problem ?  EVERY YEAR is the same.  Look for yourself.

It was the SAME EVERY YEAR with Mark Richt.

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

(68)RB NR   Brendan Douglas

(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 and was mad

(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. Went undrafted after FLUNKING-OUT of UGA.

2014 Signing Class Mark Richt UGA :

(110)OT   Kendall Baker

(111)MLB 14   Detric Bing-Dukes – Mark Richt Redshirted him 2014 so he transferred to Iowa Western then to Ole Miss

(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 but Kirby played only him vs North Carolina after his 3 ligament surgery and was never the same afterwards.

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.

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.

63 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.

43 percent of Mark Richt’s Signed Scholarship Recruits 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 sixty-three of one hundred forty-six Signed Scholarship Recruits by Mark Richt beginning 2010 until he was FIRED HERE  were either kicked-off the team failed to qualify flunked-out never showed-up or quit.

Forty-Three Percent 63 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-Three Percent of your Signed Scholarship Recruits which you GOT CREDIT for Signing Here starting 2010 end-up not playing for you 63 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 43 % worse than the overinflated recruiting rankings Mark Richt manipulated.

Figure it out.

Kirby Smart is a LOT better recruiter than Mark Richt.  But Kirby failed to recognize he had to practice his freshmen with the # 1 unit last Spring and Fall camps and so he lost 5 games including to 6-7 Vandie whom 3 cupcakes beat.

Why were we # 43 vs top 15 teams starting 2010 through the end of the Mark Richt Era 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 ?  Not 2013 Bob Miller but EVERY YEAR the same starting 2010.

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-three percent who did not play here.

Kirby has to fix this but 2018 has only 1 commit for 17 Senior Starters he has 2017.  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 # 43 for Mark Richt vs top 15 teams after 2010.    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.  43 % of the signed scholarship recruits 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 did not play for us.  They played somewhere else instead.  Didn’t they ?

http://www.cfbtrivia.com/cfbt_records.php?fry=2010&thy=2015&grk=on&gur=on&grl=01&grh=15&sasrt=WP&cres=1

 

So do NOT say they “TRANSFERRED-OUT of the 2013 class” Bob Miller Bulldawg Illustrated tell the truth instead Bob Miller Mark Richt got us in this hole when he was FIRED after 2015 regular season when 22 starters left the program before Kirby was named head coach.  Of the 22 named the DREAM TEAM by Mark Richt all of whom were starters here Kolton Houston also left after the 2015 season with them so together this DREAM TEAM then of Mark Richt’s averaged 4 losses a season 24 losses starting 2010 his last 6 years here same as Mark Richt averaged his last entire 8 years here of 32 losses which is 4 losses per season Mark Richt starting 2010 until he was fired after the end of the regulars season 2015 Bob Miller.

 

73-32 Mark Richt starting 2010 through the end of the Mark Richt era because 43 percent of his signed scholarship recruits did NOT play here.  Now did they ?

 

You are doing us no favor Bob Miller to try to lay blame to ONLY the 2013 recruiting class Bob Miller when 63 of Mark Richt’s last 146 signed scholarship recruits did NOT finish-up here at UGA.

 

Did they ?

 

It was NOT just the 2013 recruiting class was it Bob Miller ?

 

63 of Mark Richt’s last 146 signed scholarship recruits either flunked-out were kicked-off failed to qualify never showed-up or quit 43% from 2010 to 2015 and just were NOT HERE for Kirby 2016 giving Kirby the # 93 most experienced team 2016 but Kirby exacerbated that by not practicing his youth with the # 1 unit last Spring and last Fall and now this Spring too.

 

https://www.bulldawgillustrated.com/lets-set-the-record-straight-on-georgias-one-2017-nfl-draft-pick/

 

 

It was NOT just the 2013 recruiting class Bob Miller.

 

NOT.

 

Was it ?

 

And what NOW of 2018 recruiting class Bob Miller with one commitment for 17 senior starters Kirby now loses after 2017 ?

 

Georgia had one bad class Bob Miller ?

 

Or Kirby had one good one ?

 

We as a football program have our comeuppance headed our way if we think we can blame only the 2013 recruiting class for the FACT that for 9 years now we’re averaging MORE than 4 losses a year with the average recruiting ranking of # 7.

 

Did you hear me Bob Miller ?

 

We’re in trouble as a football program averaging # 7 recruiting rankings while averaging MORE than 4 losses a season now for 9 years.

 

Take the criticism Bob Miller Bulldawg Illustrated – we have it COMING.

 

There is NO EXCUSE for THIS with only 3 states producing more NFL Draft Picks than the state of Georgia.  We brag on our recruiting.  We average MORE than 4 losses for the latest most-recent most current 9-year period WITH ALL THIS TALENT signed here as Scholarship Recruits.

 

Get it this time or not Bob Miller ?

 

We have this criticism of which we are due.  Learn to take it Bob Miller not make FLIMSY excuses for it.  If we are going to improve our football program we have to TELL THE TRUTH face the FACTS and FIX THEM.

 

Do not therefore blame the 2013 recruiting class as THAT CLASS is NO DIFFERENT from ANY other 2010 2011 2012 2013 2014 2015 is it Bob Miller ?

 

4-30-2017

I am not happy with Kirby. Are you happy with Kirby ?

I am NOT satisfied with Kirby.  That is the message I want to send to Kirby with all his SECRETS about this football program.  Does he really think he can control what we think about The Mighty Georgia Bulldogs ?

 

23 seniors 2017 for Kirby and how many commitments does Kirby have to REPLACE these 23 after the season while some schools have 19 commitments already ?  One commitment a 3-star linebacker. None committed G-Day in our SPARSE not impressive crowd.  17 of the 23 seniors are STARTERS.

 

Kirby is the # 66 Scout.com Recruiting Ranking 2018 :

I did not enjoy Vandie 6-7 beating us whom 3 cupcakes beat.

This recruiting is a RED FLAG.

His secret practices and NO NEWS for The Bulldog Nation has stymied interest garnering only 25 maybe 30 thousand at most to G-Day.

According to Coaches’ Hot Seat dot com Kirby is # 31 on the Coaches’ Hot Seat today on the edge of the hot seat.

The question is are you satisfied with Kirby ?

Kirby has been critical of EVERY player we have.

Kirby has NEVER coached an offense or special teams and has no clue to offensive game strategies.

Frankly Kirby has misjudged some major talent on this roster except for on defense where he seems to recognize talent.

I’d say his honeymoon is over.

How can Kirby have 23 seniors 17 of whom are STARTERS when there are Juniors who will declarer after 2017 season is over too and have one commitment for 2018 ?

 

How any of this ?

 

 

4-28-2017

The SEC East has 3 of the top 4 WORST under-achievers in Final AP Poll rankings in ALL of college football starting 2002 through today and yet we recruit at the top of the recruiting rankings 2002 through today. This chart proves we CONTINUE to WASTE TALENT here at Georgia and NOT succeed DESPITE all our talent. How did Kirby do and is he doing again now 2017 ? It’s a pretty simple question to answer.

Difference between Final AP Poll Ranking Points and Final Rivals’ Recruiting Ranking Points:

Top-10 Underachievers (2002-2016)

Difference Team AP Poll points Rivals’ points
-159 Tennessee 46 205
-140 Florida State 143 283
-131 Florida 132 263
-109 Georgia 162 271
-108 Texas A&M 36 144
-104 Notre Dame 77 181
-101 Miami (Fla.) 82 183
-101 UCLA 36 137
-95 Auburn 131 226
-84 So. California 224 308

 

This chart shows that we have recruited very well since Rivals and Scout.com began keeping their final rankings online starting 2002 for all to compare over time with 271 Rivals’ points.  There are only 2 others on this chart who have recruited better than UGA starting 2002.

This chart also shows that despite all our talent here The Georgia Bulldogs have only 162 Final AP Poll points starting 2002.

The difference between the final Rivals’ Recruiting Rankings 2002 through today and the Final AP Poll Rankings 2002 through today is minus 109 poll points. -109 UGA.

And this chart shows The SEC East has 3 of the WORST 4 underachievers with all this talent we have here at Georgia and continue to have losing 5 games this latest season last year even.

I realize that we have an Athletics’ Director for this football school here who has no idea about college football with no experience and no knowledge of anything football related but there is no excuse for us to recruit so well and continue to do so poorly.

I knew it would happen and indeed it did yesterday that one of our fans pointed-out how well Mark Richt is recruiting next year 2018.  He had plenty of talent here.  That was not his problem.  But with all the myriad of stories of how poorly Kirby is doing with not only the press but in also in terms of basic choices by Kirby in players he is preparing to start again now 2017 and that he is just continuing all this unabated it was inevitable that the Mark Richt Apologists would come out of the woodwork to say see I never wanted Mark Richt fired in the first place.

Kirby is just continuing the crappy coaching of Mark Richt.

Yes Kirby is a poor coach unprepared to be a head coach.

You see that across the board in EVERYTHING he says and does and in his results.

That does NOT mean that we should not have fired Mark Richt.

Jesus Christ do you really believe that you can do away with the wealth of knowledge of Mark Richt’s results after 2007 until we finally had to fire him?

Yes.

Yes you actually do think you can TELL US ALL NOW that you NEVER wanted Mark Richt fired – now that Kirby is being proven as NOT PREPARED TO BE HEAD COACH.

Neither were any good as you can CLEARLY see if you only get your head out of your ass.

The school who despite all its recruiting prowess here can not do well with them while we sit and twiddle our thumbs about well let’s see is Greyson Lambert a better QB than Jacob Eason ?  Yes I think he is.  I will start Greyson Lambert.  Therefore I will NOT prepare Jacob Eason and hold him back.

I said Mecole Hardman Jr. if he is elite rated the consensus # 1 athlete in the nation I will be able to tell after 5 or 6 practices.  Well after several games I was redshirting him.  I kept telling the press that we won’t even consider him on offense despite the obvious glaring hole that I was unable to recruit a top receiver for the # 2 rated QB nationally.

Now this season I have banned everyone from talking including the press itself which 6 of the most prominent members of yesterday banded together to tell Greg McGarity that they will report what they see.  Pardon us.  And what is it that we’ve continued to see from 2002 through today pray tell ?

(1)Jacob Eason clearly was the only hope for us last season not Greyson Lambert

(2) Mecole Hardman Jr. has practiced EVERY practice with the receivers 2017

 

We suck at PLAYING our best 11 players and preparing them to play even if we have an obvious hole and even if it is obvious whom it is who should be filling that hole.  That is OUR PROBLEM.  And continues to be.  Our coaches do NOT recognize talent quickly enough.  They see what we see.  They just don’t recognize what they see.  You need perspective to see talent.  As seasons’ ticket holders for the Atlanta Falcons for decades I can assure you I clearly know an NFL player when I see one.  They STAND-OUT.

 

There is NO QUESTION of this POOR COACHING for Georgia Florida or Tennessee for the entirety of the time 2002 through today.  And there is just as much NO QUESTION that Kirby coached this team crappy last year too.

 

I don’t frankly give a shit that Florida and the vols are BOTH in the top 3 worst coached football programs for 16 years in a row now.

 

The issue I have is that EVEN THEY beat us.  We lost to BOTH with Kirby.

 

Does banning news make Kirby or the team better ?  Certainly NOT.  It is a weak attempt to CONTROL.

 

Just how easy has this been and continues to be to beat these underachieving SEC East teams in The SEC East ?

 

Kirby DAMN WELL better get his ass to Atlanta 2017 at the Atlanta Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

 

Now I do care about how we APPEAR to the press too that our coach is this poorly prepared to even talk with the press but then again I never suspected for one moment that Greg McGarity would actually TEACH Kirby anything.

That leaves it to me.  Here on my blog.  Me to now have to teach you the facts.  We continue to be one of the weakest divisions in all of college football and yet we have not won The SEC in 2016 2015 2014 2013 2012 2011 2010 2009 2008 2007 2006 and in fact in 2005 we ended-up in EVERY poll the # 3 SEC team.  This is the 3rd longest streak in our entire history of not winning The SEC.

 

Is it because we can not recruit ?

No.

It’s because despite all this talent we CONTINUE to NOT PLAY our best 11.

This chart proves it because the recruiting services have proven beyond all doubters otherwise that they do in fact a top-notch job of highlighting the top players.  The NFL agrees with them and the national champions come from these doing well in the recruiting rankings’ services.

Our coaches both Mark Richt and Kirby Smart have failed to play the players rated well by the services and they go on to the NFL and do well there while less talented teams beat us here and they accomplish NOTHING here.

Kirby last year for example said about our 2 top-rated players Jacob Eason and Mecole Hardman Jr. that they were in fact NOT his choices.

Now he takes that ALL BACK and says they are.

This blog said that all year last year – didn’t I ?

What is Kirby doing with this recruiting class 2017 ranked # 2 nationally by Scout.com and # 3 by Rivals and # 3 by ESPN RecruitingNation ?  Is he PLAYING  them ?  Is he PREPARING them to play even in the holes our team CLEARLY has ?

The day after tomorrow you can judge for yourself.

He is playing the wrong guys and it will be clear to all of us the day after tomorrow because Kirby is playing the ones against the ones.  And the twos against the twos.

 

The twos will stand-out but they will NOT be prepared and will NOT play 2017 any more than Kirby did in 2016 with that crappy-assed OL yet all 3 Kirby signed 2016 to help on the OL all 3 got one snap combined all of 2016.

Come Fall Camp Kirby AGAIN will NOT prepare this fantastic best-ever UGA football recruiting class to play 2017.

He thinks he has ANOTHER throw-away season.

That he can muck-up 2017 and you will give him ANOTHER Mulligan.

 

Like the one touch Mecole Hardman Jr. got all of 2016.

Like all the days from January 12 through September 6 when Greyson Lambert was STILL practicing with the ONES.

You can watch this AGAIN the day after tomorrow yourself.  And you can report it online in whatever manner it is you speak on the Internet.  No one can stop you.

What will you report ?

That we with all this talent stockpiled here since 2002 don’t play them.  That they CONTINUE to be the players who are NOT the ones but the twos.

We can not even figure-out who should be playing.

That is what Kirby does NOT want reported.

If you recognize who are your best players and get them on the field to fill your holes you will do better and be judged a good coach.

If ALL you do is to RECRUIT and don’t even prepare them to play then throw them into the fire anyway without any preparation and without coaching them then all you have done is to recruit well.

But how is Kirby doing COACHING ?

Surely by now you determined that Mark Richt was NOT the answer and NEITHER is Kirby.

The very definition of “coaching” is to get more from less.  Here for 16 years and counting we get LESS with MORE.

Just imagine that Kirby lost to 6-7 Vandie whom 3 cupcakes beat.

Does it matter that Mark Richt is ranked # 1 for recruiting 2018 ?  Hell no.  He had more than enough talent here and could not get the job done # 42 in won/lost vs top 15 teams after 2007 yet # 7 average in recruiting rankings.  Talent was not his problem.  It was PLAYING the talent coaching them getting them prepared and on the field to do well.

Does Kirby help his situation with the latest firestorm that 6 of the most prominent members of the press had it OUT with Greg McGarity yesterday that they WILL report that which they do see.

 

So will I.

 

I have continued to.

Haven’t I ?

Kirby is a bad coach and so was Mark Richt.

If THIS is what you EXPECTED to be my summary Kirby of you banning EVERYTHING about our football program we are all TRYING to be the fans of then congratulations Kirby for you sir have succeeded.

You’re not prepared to be our head coach Kirby.

Come back when you are.

And STFU about what I can and can NOT say.

 

I can say you are trying to cover-up how poorly you are coaching.

And there is NOT a DAMN thing you can do about it Kirby.

 

 

4-20-2017

From January 12 it took Kirby Smart until September 5 a grand total of 33 weeks to determine Jacob Eason is better than Greyson Lambert. Then with NO SNAPS with the # 1 unit Kirby made Jacob Eason his STARTER ANYWAY. Who this year 2017 Kirby will you be unable to determine are our STARS for 33 weeks PERSONA NON GRATA person not wanted of 16 ESPN Top 200 recruits overall 2017 Kirby signed and give THEM no snaps with the # 1 unit because these STARS dared to be FRESHMEN ? Then throw them to wolves ANYWAY ?

It takes time for the # 1 unit to learn a player.  And it takes a new player time to learn the # 1 unit.  You can’t make him the STARTER and NEVER let him get used to the # 1 unit.

 

We were a young team last season.  We were DESTINED to play the freshmen.  Instead we held them back and Kirby COMPLAINED to the press every press meeting about the freshmen.  Kirby said the freshmen were NO GOOD to the press.

 

This resonates with the TEAM.

 

And the freshmen.

 

Now 2017 Kirby is the nearly unanimous choice to WIN The SEC East.  It could be 100 percent of EVERYONE who says this.

 

If we were a young team last year AND WE WERE then these 16 ESPN Top 200 Kirby just signed in the 2017 class need reps with the # 1 unit.

 

If they are HERE Spring Practice one week from Tuesday they MUST get reps with the # 1 unit.  Send the message ESPECIALLY on Offense and SPECIAL TEAMS that what went-on LAST YEAR 2016 is UNACCEPTABLE on Offense and on Special Teams.

 

GET OUR STARS out there on the field Kirby Tuesday March 21 Spring Practice Georgia Bulldogs UGA.

 

And when the rest of the signing class shows up this FALL CAMP do the SAME Kirby with your STAR PLAYERS.

 

You must be QUICKER Kirby in determining whom it is YOU SIGNED who are the stars of your team Kirby.

 

PERSONA NON GRATA person not wanted – do NOT pull this with THIS FRESHMEN CLASS 2017 Kirby.

 

Play OUR STARS Kirby.

 

Practice them with the # 1 unit.

 

DO IT NOW.

 

3-12-2017

Kirby signed 16 ESPN Top 200 Overall of 3300 nationwide : # 2 Isaiah Wilson. # 10 DeAngelo Gibbs. # 12 Richard LeCounte III. # 15 Robert Beal. # 40 Andrew Thomas. # 66 D’Andre Swift. # 77 William Poole III. # 97 Tray Bishop. # 98 Malik Herring. # 104 Jeremiah Holloman. # 132 Jake Fromm. # 142 Netori Johnson. # 168 Jaden Hunter. # 175 Mark Webb. # 184 Walter Grant. # 195 D’Antne Demery. Is Kirby going to play them and practice them with the # 1 unit or HOLD THEM BACK 2017 ? That is the Question 2017.

8-5 team who LOST to 6-7 Vandie and therefore Kirby was NOT even a winning record in The SEC 2016.

 

The Off-Season QUESTION is if Kirby is planning on plugging these guys in as STARS on this team obviously or if Kirby is NOT PLANNING on using them right off the bat or not.

 

Every year now we see THESE TOP STARS do EXTREMELY well as Freshmen. Kirby just signed 8 percent of the ESPN Top 200 best overall players in the nation for just one of the 130 teams in FBS Football 2017.  We represent two-thirds of one percent of the teams and signed 8 percent of the top players.

 

This is a quite extraordinary signing of 16 of the top 200 players in the nation. Our stars on our football team will be made-up of these 16 players.

 

Every team in the nation would have loved to have signed 16 of the top 200 players in the nation quite obviously.

 

But the question we have as a team 2017 is if Kirby is planning on using these guys or instead is going to treat them as persona non grata an unwelcome player 2017.

 

Obviously these 16 top 200 players nationwide are a huge help to our 2017 team.

 

If we play them.

 

If we do not play them then it matters little 2017 that we got the nation’s # 1 haul of top 200 players according to ESPN.

 

There is little question that Kirby was an abomination across the board in his first head coaching job EXCEPT for RECRUITING.

 

So the question is if Kirby is going to take-advantage of these 16 ESPN Top 200 players nationally 2017 or have yet again another throw-away season.

 

This is where we are 2017.

# 1 Scout.com recruiting class 2017

2-1-2017

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 :

1-31-2017

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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.

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 ?

Maria Taylor may be ONE of the MANY working at ESPN from UGA and quite the student-athlete who is a GREAT Lady Bulldog Women’s Basketball player at a time Andy Landers had many such but she also is also one of our VERY BEST EVER Women’s Volleyball Players of All-Time too.

 

Lady Bulldogs’ Women’s Basketball Player here at UGA shot .458 from the field for us on a team chalk full of stars such as Tasha Humphrey Sherill Baker Megan Darrah whom I grew-up with Ashley Houts Angel Robinson Porsha Phillips Maria Taylor on the 2007-2008 Lady Bulldogs Women’s Basketball team is the 5th leading shot blocker on the 27-7 Lady Bulldogs’ team of Andy Landers and 3rd best leading field goal shooter behind only Tasha Humphrey and Angel Robinson.

You really must listen to Maria Taylor’s voice. ESPN has so many distinctive voices some of which are the most grading voices to listen to and then there is Maria Taylor’s Awesome Wonderful Voice we all have listened to here at Georgia IN ALL OUR SPORTS for over a decade now.

ESPN Turner Sports Network ISS IMG NBC CSS SEC Network ESPN2 ESPN3 ESPNU Orange Bowl every year there really is no EQUAL to this GREAT among GREATS in Sports Network Commentary.

 

Maria Taylor does broadcasts I have seen many times with Brent Musburger and Jesse Palmer and I know you know Jesse Palmer really knows his stuff. Maria Taylor is EVERY BIT Jesse Palmer wrapped in a prettier sweeter better-spoken package.

 

And she one of our own here at UGA.  Unlike Jesse Palmer as IMPRESSIVE as he is and he is trust me too – he is from the Florida Gators which I obviously would want to hold against him and just can’t listening to him.  AndMaria Taylor with him on the broadcasts with Brent Musburger is left in the dust of this combo.

 

Maria Taylor represented The United States of America in Women’s International Volleyball and 3 times was named All-SEC here at Georgia.

 

From Alpharetta I just simply put can not be more proud of Maria Taylor if I wanted to be.

 

Thank you Maria Taylor. I have followed you a decade. Even when you were playing you were doing TV shows. I remember once when Andy Landers interviewed you on TV.

 

http://espnmediazone.com/us/bios/maria-taylor/

 

As in Women’s Basketball where you were 3rd best shooter on the team on a great 27-7 Lady Bulldogs Team for Andy Landers you hit over 50% of your kill shots in Women’s Volleyball too. 35 kills in a single game.  Routinely Maria Taylor hit 20 kills in games for us here at Georgia.

 

Pride of Centennial High Alpharetta Maria Taylor is MY PERSONAL HERO. Ok I am in love too I readily admit I can not help myself.

 

It’s not my fault.

 

Please forgive me.
