# 6 for Kirby 2016

# 3 for Kirby 2017

# 1 for Kirby 2018

Mark Richt NEVER did that.

 

Oh Mark Richt got told by his Athletics’ Director that it was totally unacceptable what happened ALL YEAR LONG at Miami whose recruiting SUCKED compared to Kirby.

 

Kirby recruited Florida better than Miami of Florida did.

It’s a LONG TIME since December 20 2017 when we got our first shot at this.  This time Kirby just went right back at it and disregarded that he does not even have a scholarship for these 26.  If they can play great football Kirby took them.  Sort it out later.

 

In the meantime NFL Wide Receiver Cortez Hankton joins Kirby to teach our wide receivers that which they to-date have NOT SHOWN and that is how to catch the football not drop it.  Thank you Cortez Hankton for helping.  Maybe you can SIGN some of the top receivers here too Cortez Hankton ?

 

National Signing Day 7 February 2018.

 

Notre Dame Brian Kelly signed 27 today

 

…and Texas Tom Hermann he signed 27 today too  :

 

 

Tom Hermann has it going-on for a 7-6 Texas today.

# 2 Quarterback in the Nation Jake Eason.

D.J. Shockley now on National Signing Day Official Show at georgiadogs.com calls for Jake Eason to Start Game 1.   “I would not be surprised to see him start game 1,” DJ Shockleyy reports from UGA today.  Pussies said contingent upon fired coach only. You bragged to me that you do NOT follow recruiting, so why are you here too reading what I have to say ?  How can you be a fan of college football and say that you do not follow recruiting ?  You MAY not – that is the ANSWER to that question you God Damned Dumbass. 3.83 GPA. 6′ 5″ 220 lbs. Fired coach flew out there day before fired knowing he to be fired by his boss of 6 full years.  You do not not know you are being fired by boss of 6 years the next day.  You sure know you are being fired after 6 years.  Did all he could to screw it up for The University of Georgia.  However Kirby got on a plane the day he was announced as our coach with our recruiting class ranked # 14 that day# 14 Scout.com recruiting ranking.  He flew to see Jake and his WR Dad of Notre Dame.  He invited him to visit here the day after he left there.  He did.  In between he hired Offensive Coordinator and Offensive Line Coach, so when he arrived on campus, his Dad said that Jake decided that since we had Sam Pittman, that was enough to sway him our way.  The day he was announced as our head coach Jake was considering Florida and Notre Dame and Miami of Florida.  2 days later, Kirby had won him over.  You told me, you freaking pussies that we would NOT have Jake Eason if we fired the stupid ass moron guy Kirby takes over for now.  I told you with Mike Bobo, AJ Green, Knowshon Moreno and Matthew Stafford 2008 we lost 3 games and go to play for our Bowl Game # 24 Michigan State 4-loss team.  You ALSO guaranteed to me AFTER Georgie tek yellowjackets’ game that he would be back, that he wasn’t going ANYWHERE you bragged to me and that he was our best coach EVER averaging over his last entire 8 years here (1) 4-losses per season AND (2) # 40 at beating top 15 teams for # 11 All-Time UGA losing 18 of 24 games.  Stick this up your asshole you friqin’ Pussies !  He wants to go into broadcasting after football.  He wanted to go to a school which has a great fan base.  About the fired coach, he said that “Georgia fans went through a tough time for years now recently.”  He was the Gatorade Player of the Year.  He threw for 43 TD passes his senior season alone.  The fired coach’s quarterbacks threw for 22 TD passes this year and 12 last year against soft schedules.  We were the # 100 Passing Offense last season with Mike Bobo and # 100 Passing Offense this season without Mike Bobo.  The fired coach called all the plays, decided who started and who did NOT, and made the game strategies.  He also de-motivated his players and was NOT fired for that which he did 2001-2007 so adding that back in to state : “Oh, he was this or that his entire tenure” is to ATTEMPT to take our eyes off the ball that he was FIRED for what he did AFTER 2007 – his last entire 8 years of losing and being God Damn Friqin’ Mediocre while trying to sell us on the concept that “there’s something besides winning that’s important here at Georgia.” No there isn’t.  Jake was named the Maxwell Award National High School Player of the Year.  U.S. Army All-America QB.  He is from out-of-state.  He is dynamic in the pocket moving around. He is here.  He can run the football.  He is prototypical NFL QB.  He will be our 5th NFL Overall # 1 Draft Pick 3 years from now.  He WILL start against North Carolina in the Peach Bowl Chick-fil-A Kick-Off Classic 9-3-2016 seven (7) months from the day today.  He has been studying the playbook now for a MONTH.  He is ready to have G-Day Game April 16, 2016 which is 3 and a half months since Kirby got him here be the LARGEST CROWD EVER to watch him show what he has been showing to our Wide Receivers such as throwing to them last Wednesday a week ago now. Florida was CERTAIN they had Jake.  You STILL call him Jacob when he ran off Jacob Park whom he WOULD HAVE STARTED against Kentucky last year.  Miami of Florida and the FIRED COACH were CERTAIN they had him.  You PROMISED ME they would and NOT US IF WE FIRED HIM and you said he would NOT be fired which I GUARANTEED you he would be AFTER the Georgie tek yellowjackets’ debacle. Alabama wanted him.  Michigan wanted him. Florida State wanted him. Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, vols, Texas, UCLA, Southern Cal, Oklahoma State and Oregon State among others ALL WANTED him.  You bragged to ME that him coming here was “contingent upon” our FIRED COACH being here.  You are FULL OF SHIT and I am PROUD to tell you pussies that you COULD NOT POSSIBLY be MORE WRONG on ALL OF THIS !  Stick it up your God Damned Friqin’ Assholes !  Why don’t you whine about it some more ?  USA Today All-America QB.  Rivals last year Junior Season National High School Football Player of the Year 2014 too.  Threw only 6 interceptions with 43 TD Passes this season leading his team to the state championship game. Tweeted to players that he better be seeing UGA hats today.  Told EVERYONE that HE would take them around the campus and ORIENT them as TEAM LEADER !  From state of Washington.

# 1 Tight End in the Nation Isaac Nauta. 

Scholar. U.S. Army All-American.  USA Today 1st Team Offense. Ranked variously as high as # 18 overall football player in all of America.  Also stated that FAN BASE was 1 of his if not the very key with him TOO !  Along with GREAT SCHOOL.  6′ 4″ and 237 lbs. !  Fabulous hands.  Will FORCE throws to be made to him for 3 years when he too is a 1st Round NFL Draft Pick.  He has talented guys AHEAD of him on our Depth Chart, but we have NOT thrown to Tight Ends around here all 8 years of our average 4 losses a season and losing 18 of 24 games vs top 15 teams.  He will Start 2016 at least 1 game despite the talent ahead of him here.  Kirby also out-recruited Alabama primarily for Isaac Nauta who WOULD NEVER have come here with the old fired coach and was not coming here until we hired Kirby.  From state of Florida and was considering Miami of Florida until they got our FIRED COACH.  Ohio State, Southern Cal, Texas A&M, Texas, vols, TCU, Stanford, South Carolina, Penn State, Oregon, Oklahoma State, Oklahoma, Notre Dame, North Carolina, Missouri, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, LSU, Michigan, Michigan State, Iowa, Louisville, Florida, Clemson, Baylor, and Auburn all wanted him and offered him a Scholarship too.  Kirby got him signed.  He was NOT coming here.

 

# 7 Defensive Tackle in the Nation Julian Rochester McEachern High School.

Scholar. U.S. Army All-American. USA Today 2nd Team. 6′ 5″ and 312 lbs. Tracy Rocker got him here.  No one else.  He was ALWAYS coming here no matter whether the FIRED COACH was here or not.  Alabama, Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Louisville, LSU, Miami of Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Ohio State, Texas A&M and the vols all wanted him and offered him Scholarships. He will start for Kirby this 2016 season on Kirby’s Defense.  He will consider going in the NFL Draft early.

 

# 7 Offensive Guard in the Nation Ben Cleveland Stephens County High.

Scholar.  Lettered in baseball as well, as did I.  U.S. Army All-American. State of Georgia AAAAAA Defensive Player of the Year. Ranked as highly as # 23 best overall football player in the nation.  6′ 5″ and 320 lbs.  Notice anything about 6′ 5″ and 320 lbs. yet here ?  He was ALWAYS COMING HERE no matter about the fired coach you pussies !  More than anyone, HE recruited Jake Eason here and KEPT him here by himself until we finally announced Kirby – although he was OFFERED and ACCEPTED this gig Saturday night November 28 2015.  Our Athletics’ Director did NOT fire our old coach but recommended that he be FIRED BY JERE MOREHEAD whom he told Saturday night also November 28 2015 that Kirby had accepted the position IMMEDIATELY.  Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Clemson, Michigan, Ole Miss (did not offer him any monies or freebies), North Carolina, South Carolina, vols, Texas, Texas A&M, and Miami of Florida ALL wanted him.  Will play here 3 years and go early in the NFL Draft.  In fact that NFL Draft is shaping-up NOW ALREADY as The Greatest in Bulldogs’ history.  Dream Team bullshit of the FIRED coach ?  I think not, the last of their exodus now in the up-coming NFL Draft completes their LACKLUSTER MEDIOCRE bowl “opponents” of mostly unranked teams, and caps off the most recent 8 years of 12 losses to unranked teams time of game or for season and 7 losses of more than 3 TD.  Kiss my ass Apologists !  Keep the guy.  He isn’t going anywhere.  He will be back because he has a good recruiting class averaging # 8 Scout.com recruiting ranking and # 14 at time Kirby was announced for this year.  Was NOT going to be ANYWHERE NEAR this good a Signing Day 2016.  In fact, as Bill Murray of Ground Hog Day – who saw no shadow and offered up an Early Spring 2016 on a day that was 74 degrees here last evening – we were stuck in a rut of every year for 8 years exactly the same averaging 4 losses per season for 8 years and NOTHING we did ANY National Signing Day would alter the few and far between Elite Players here because they wanted to WIN.  I fixed that.  Right here on this little blog, I personally saw to it that he was FIRED because I am a MAN not one of you Pussies.  I dared to want more in the very face of the clique that insisted what he did from 2001 was all that mattered and that despite the rut he was in for 8 years, refused to ALLOW ME TO DISCUSS EVEN what he had become his last entire excruciating God Damn 8 years.  Friq YOU !  He’s coming back Pussies.  Grow a pair Damn You Pussies !  He will start for Kirby this 2016 season, maybe nearly every game all season and will go early in the NFL Draft.

 

# 28 Wide Receiver in the Nation Riley Ridley

Scholar. Was NOT going to come here until Kirby was hired.  Under Armour All-American. Top’s All-American. Was going to go to South Carolina or Miami of Florida UNTIL the FIRED GUY here was sent packing, run out of town on a God Damned Rail and dispatched to that hell hole where (1) it is NOT safe and (2) where the food sucks and (3) where the bugs never die.  Younger brother of Alabama’s National Champions’ Starting Wide Receiver Calvin Ridley.  From the state of Florida. Alabama wanted him, as did Florida, Auburn, Florida State, vols and LSU. 6′ 2″ and 200 lbs. with 4.8 speed.  Kirby got him here.  His brother Calvin at Alabama is slightly smaller than Riley, not as tall as Riley and does not weigh as much as Riley.  His bother Calvin is faster and USA Today Freshman All-America his freshman season just ended with over 1,045 yards receiving.

 

# 18 Cornerback in the Nation Chad Clay Peachtree Ridge Suwanee

Scholar.  Top’s All-American. He was ALWAYS coming here.  He is our single fastest 2016 Signing Date Speedster at 4.55 in the 40-yard dash. I hope to see MORE SPEED like this signed later today. 6 feet tall and 180 lbs.  Florida, Clemson, LSU, Ohio State, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Penn State, South Carolina, vols, Southern Cal, Missouri, Mississippi State, Louisville, and Auburn all wanted him.  Chad Clay will be in the news for us.  vols signed the other Peachtree Ridge Suwanee cornerback who is not as tall and not as fast as Chad Clay Baylen Buchanan who is the # 54 Cornerback in the nation.   Kicked-Off by Kirby.

.
Nephew of Scott Woerner College Football Hall of Fame just sent his FAX in here and said : “I’m from Georgia, always been a fan, and wouldn’t want to be anywhere else,” Charlie told the AJ-C.  6′ 5″ 228 lbs 4.78 40-yard dash !  Beast.  Tops All-American.  With our TE Depth might play nearly anywhere such as WR or Safety as his Uncle.

# 1 Athlete in the Nation Mecole Hardman Jr 2-Way Player & Special Teams Elbert County
 .
Mecole Hardman Jr is the biggest new news for Signing Day 2016.  He had told Kirby’s predecessor that he had Alabama above Georgia and that he did not bring his players ready to play, but that Kirby’s players WERE ready to play.  Kirby’s predecessor had INVITED Mecole Hardman Jr to the Alabama game as his Official NCAA Visit.  Good Lord.  But, Kirby turned Mecole Hardman Jr around for us today !  Great News !  I love this guy !  Kirby can figure out where to use him when but he will START game 1 and play 3 years and then go early in the NFL Draft.  U.S. Army All-American like the other 5 listed above.  5′ 11″ and 180 lbs. # 16 Overall Football Player in the Nation.  QB and Defensive Back.  Historic Signing Day !  Thank you Mecole !  I see him as Defensive Back and Special Teams and sometimes on Offense too maybe Wide Receiver. 4.48 Mecole Hardman Jr is the FASTEST Signee for Georgia so far today !  Likely the fastest obviously we will sign.

This is whom Kirby has SIGNED National Letters of Intent from so far.

 

We have 4 Scholarships remaining for Kirby today or the up-coming days AFTER National Signing Day today when Kirby will STILL be getting MORE after today, significant players like these guys.  We have the # 7 best AVERAGE RANKING in the Nation of our 2016 Signed Class 3 February 2016 in Scout.com and # 3 best AVERAGE RANKING in the nation of our 2016 Signed Class 3 February 2016 in Rivals Team Rankings.   AND it is THIS AVERAGE RANKING of our players that is MOST RELEVANT as Kirby only has 85 so wasting them on players he NEVER INTENDS to play as his FIRED predecessor – is NOT an option.

UPDATE : Then Kirby signed Brian Herrien the # 19 best running back in the nation and future NFL player.  Kirby signed Tyler Catalina OL and Mo Smith db 2 graduate transfers.

Recruiting Signing Date 4 February 2015

2-4-2015

Richard Seymour has moved to the plush Northern Suburbs but he was Mark Richt’s 1st NFL Draft Selection in 2001, of which he has had now 82 NFL Draft Picks in total.  He would go on to earn $ 76 million dollars in the NFL, and I felt he was robbed of the NFL Super Bowl MVP.  He was the highest paid DL in the NFL, and was defensive team captain winning 3 Super Bowl Championships for New England.  His career is over now.  He scored an NFL Touchdown.  He had 496 tackles, 57 sacks, 4 forced fumbles, 2 interceptions, and 7 Pro Bowls, after being named on numerous 1st Team All-America Teams here at Georgia.

Richard Seymour’s adopted son Devondre Seymour is now already here at UGA, playing OL.  I remember Richard Seymour’s days here well.  Destined for greatness, he has done himself and us, proud.  His son is 6′ 6″ and 305 lbs., same as his Dad, who was by the way the # 6 overall NFL Draft Pick 2001.  New England’s Robert Kraft got a bargain for the boy from Gadsden South Carolina for the man with 3 Super Bowl rings – one I forever will say was because of him.

Super Bowl XXXVI Richard Seymour single-handedly won the game for New England, not Tom Brady Super Bowl MVP.  He sacked Kurt Warner and harassed him all day long.  He stopped the running game of the Rams, holding them to only 90 yards rushing.  He broke up passes, batting balls down, made tackle after tackle leading the Patriots in tackles, and caused the interception which won the Super Bowl.  Tom Brady, who completed 16 passes for 145 yards and 1 Touchdown Pass, was awarded the Super Bowl MVP, instead.  Anyone who watched the game, knows exactly who dominated the game when U2 played It’s a Beautiful Day at halftime.  But this is not Richard’s son so we shall see if being brought up by him teaches him anything that seemed innate to Richard.

We have many holes, but OL is certainly up there at the top with our aging OL now.  Seems we go too many years with top OL here now, seemingly happy in our ignorance not to recruit another 5 every year.  This is one of those years.

Again.

Many times, we’ve pulled this.  Not signing OL.

2015 no different on that.

We also make a concerted effort to not sign a single Fullback except once in 7 years now; yet as OL are plentiful, there are over 200 top fullbacks our rivals sign, instead.  Like OL.  And, we run a fullback oriented offense.  Crazy what we do on OL and at Fullback.

We also did not sign speedsters this season.  Usually, we do.  This season, this is a plodding group on the whole.

Devondre Seymour is not the only junior college 2-year signee this season.  We also signed a linebacker from JUCO, Chuks Amaechi of Arizona.  These guys fill-in a roster shortened by arrested/suspended/kicked-off players.  We are down to only 72 of the latest 118 signed who with redshirt would’ve played against Louisville, and there was not 1 Early NFL Draft Pick in the most recent NFL Draft.

This has taken a toll on us, as a program.  On and Off the field.

Giddy Bulldogs’ fans try to censor this discussion.  But, Mark Richt has been here a long, long, long time now.  His 1st NFL Draft Picks’ sons are here now.   Once 81 % win percentage, more recently the 2nd half of his career, he has been mediocre 68% and to quote Todd Gurley II believed to still be the top Bulldog NFL Draft Pick 2015, Todd Gurley II said in 2014 that he is sick and tired of losing and being mediocre.  His contract will have a stipulation about being able to perform after his surgery.

The Giddy Bulldogs’ fans want to harp on :

(1) Great Recruiting of Mark Richt such as this fine class

(2) What a fine man he is, therefore doing it the right way.

What they fail to want to tie to that is that if he is responsible for the great talent you give him credit for bringing here today, then he by God Above is responsible for that which they do on and off the field representing him, then.

And, why lose so much ?

Dumbasses.

34 times Mark Richt has played teams higher ranked for the seasons 2008-2014, and he has lost 23 of them.

Mark Richt has also lost to ten (10) teams not ranked time of game or for the season AP or Coaches after 2007.

This is unacceptable that # 11 all-time in 1-A wins would be # 21 after 2007 losing not only to the better teams two-thirds of the time, but in addition losing to 10 unranked teams.  All of this is traced directly to the attrition, mostly arrested/suspended/kicked-off.  All of this is attributable to conflicting messages such as I love you said to those dismissed.   I believe it is Mark Richt’s Religion which holds us back therefore.  I do not love those who got so much bad press that they got kicked-off.  I tell them to obey the rules, instead, directly.  I love them ?  The hell I do.  I want to win football games against the top teams better than 1 out of 3 and I certainly do not want to lose IN ADDITION to ALL THAT, another 10 games in 7 latest seasons to unranked teams.

It is too much, and has got to come to an end.

But, it is good to see we got an Offensive Lineman, and fine young man like his Dad.  We also got on the OL another big boy in Sam Madden of Barnegat High School, which is one I had not heard of, even though I spent 2 years post-graduate studying at Princeton, nearby.  Pat Allen from Maryland joins our OL too.  Sage Hardin from Marist here joins our OL too.

Jonathan Ledbetter out of Tucker will be a force from his Defensive Lineman position.  Alabama really wanted him, so too did Auburn, Florida State, Florida, Clemson, Michigan State, Ohio State, and Stanford.  There is no reason he cannot be 1st Team All-America.  He teams up with Chauncey Rivers out of Stephenson and the duo will be a terror.   These 2 names will be household names if they can keep their noses clean.  Perhaps the best of the 3 might be Natrez Patrick out of Mays.  We also signed Michael Barnett out of South Carolina.  In all we got twice as many defensive players as you can see than we did Offensive.  Tae Crowder was going to go to Georgia Southern University until we offered him last night, and he joins us at RB.  He jumped on our offer.  I can appreciate that.  Justin Young joins the DL from Grayson here.  Daquan Hawkins from Westlake here as well on the DL.

It’s a haul.  28 and counting.  Wow !  I thought you could only sign 25, and that Mark Richt never over-signs ?  How many of these will be arrested/suspended/kicked-off ?

 

I mean it IS what Mark Richt does, isn’t it ?

 

He recruits them.

He gets credit for recruiting them.

They get arrested/suspended/kicked-off and well everyone else recruited them too.

Not Mark Richt’s fault.

He hasn’t lost control.

No.

Nothing like that.

So when he got down to only 67 scholarships recruits who played in the last bowl game it looks like a third of the team are signed scholarship recruits for Mark Richt now February 4 2015.

 

Will it make a difference ?

 

No.

 

Emphatically no.

 

Why ?

Because he can’t coach and he can’t teach his recruits he gets such great praise for signing here to either win the big games nor keep their noses clean.

 

Can he ?

 

Oh and he loses to unranked teams double-digits of them just after 2007.

 

1 every year.

 

Awful.

 

Still you try to shut me up and brag on the recruits.

 

Talent has never been Mark Richt’s missing link, it’s been his lack of coaching, lack of detail, bad choices at Starting QB, lack development of QB in college where the QB is KING, and more arrested/suspended/kicked-off while losing to top 15 teams nearly every time now after 2007, barely able to beat more teams playing in a bowl game than he plays likely as not lose those, and oh yeah lose to unranked teams at least 1 a year sometimes MORE.

 

With all this talent.

 

I look forward to rooting these guys on, the ones who are not arrested/suspended/kicked-off and long for the day they are coached by a real coach who does NOT say that there’s something here at Georgia that is MORE important than WINNING.

All the press goes to the fine young man Trenton Thompson of Albany.  That’s pronounced Al Bany’.  What a great guy.

Rashad Roundtree of Augusta, should be a big help in our secondary even in 2015.  Jarvis Wilson will be too.  As will Juwuan Briscoe of Thomas Stone, which is Baltimore.  Rico McGraw joins Jeremy Pruitt’s secondary from Nashville 4 hours’ away. Highly recruited.   Johnathan Abram East Marion High in Columbia Mississippi. One would think with the resurgence of Ole Miss and Mississippi State that they could keep him there, but we really went out on defensive and signed top players from all over to get this defense back to Junkyard Dawgs’ style, like we all grew up on here. Erk Russell always took the most talented offensive players and put them on defense and the best of them then, at Rover.  Deandre Baker joins the db from Miami.   Kirby Choates, Jr. joins us from East Point to our db as well.

Terry Godwin’s older sister, who transferred in during his recruitment by us, has barely gotten on the court at all for Andy Landers, and she only has 1 more year after this one.  I have followed her for you on this blog since we gave her a Scholarship.

Gary McRae out of Randolph Clay is quick and will be a stand-out for us at his linebacker position, which has been one of our strengths now for a long time.  Even more heralded if that possible, is linebacker D’Andre Walker of Langston Hughes.

Jackson Harris out of Columbia Central Tennessee is a huge get at Tight End, but we have not thrown to Tight Ends recently.  Not sure what that was all about I wrote continuously, and I fully expect Jackson Harris to be a main target for Schottenheimer.

Michael Chigbu of Holy Cross  in New Orleans pronounced Na Or’lins will be a big boost to the depleted wide receiver corps for us, as will Jayson Stanley of Creekside.  Shaquery Wilson as well from Florida.

In all, 14 are recruited to here from out-of-state.  Half of the 28.  That is $ 50,000 each for the 14 per year.  $ 700 thousand dollars per year and 3 and a half million until they graduate.  For this, we’d appreciate they not add their names to the roll of those arrested/suspended/kicked-off.  Just imagine only 72 remaining today of the 118 signed with redshirt who could’ve been playing the latest game ?  The investment in their education for these 29 in total.  29 recruits, 14 out-of-state recruits.  Total investment just in their education here at UGA is $ 7 million dollars.  The impact upon each of the 29 lives is millions they will make their working lives.  I made $ 5 million after I graduated UGA.  They will probably make more.  Many do. Some will make $ 76 million like Richard Seymour.

We over-sign every year to try to catch-up.  It inflates our overall average recruiting ranking.  We lose way too many good football players because we do not tell them what I will now :

Go to class.  Study.  Exercise.  College is not to get drunk or high.  It is to get an education.  You are on full scholarship to my alma mater, recognized worldwide as a leader in many fields you might take classes in.  Work hard in the area of staying with the right crowd.  My college friends are my best friends today.  Cull the group when they act wild.  Tell them you have to study.  Put the book on your bed.  Buy a small lamp.  Put it at the head of your bed.  Fall asleep reading.  Wake up, and read more then fall asleep again.  Get outside.  Play basketball, ping pong, date the gals and ask them about their studies.

If you came here for a good time, you are wasting your one go around.

This is the time for all good scholarship recruits to understand why they are in college and why we give you this $ 7 million dollars – just those we just signed – to come to my alma mater and get an education that will make you $ 5 million as I in your career.  If you are Richard Seymour, that is $ 76 million.

You are setting yourself up for life.  Do it like I did.  I never stepped foot in the Red and Black.  Not once.  Never accepted the invitations.  I studied.  I practiced and ran of course, and had loads of fun mostly from getting all A in every class and being the # 1 student in every class I took.  I worked hard at it.  When I made a B, I took an incomplete and took the course again along with my regular load. I took one class 3 times, and graduated with 238 hours when 180 is all that was required.  I did it in 3 years, going every Summer. I never missed one class, nor ever was late to class.  I read every book BEFORE I stepped foot in any course I took.  I bought used books with no writing in them, or new if I had to.

I know how to read.  (1) Skim see what’s in it (2) Read 2nd time until you learn something from each page.  Learn anything, quit reading that page, go to next page.  (3) 3rd time through, this time for the 1st time, read every word.  (4) 4th time through, study each page and understand what is being presented; but, if you find a difficult passage, skip it (5) Go back now 5th time through, and this time, spend as much time as is necessary to be able when the Prof brings the subject up in class, to sit on 2nd row, raise your damned hand and say Sir, I read that passage and you are saying this now, but from what I read, it was attempting to make it sound like that instead.  I am confused sir, can you explain.  Ask to meet him after class and when he is available.  (6) When everyone else is off on the weekends partying and going home wasting time in the car to see high school buddies to party hearty, stay in the dorm.  Be boring. Damn it, study for 4 years.  Read the book a 6th time now, fully understanding it.  Keep the books for lifetime as I.  Refer to them.  And, when the others in the class come to you for help to cram or want to cram with them before the exam, tell them you are going to bed.  That you have done what they are going to try to do in 6 hours, all the time from the day you registered and bought the books for the class and want to be fresh.

I’ve got plenty of money.  I do not need to work.  But, I tell you what.  I do not hold Roquan Smith accountable for the lies he was told by the Falcons’ coach who tried to lure him to the Land of Fruit and Nuts, even though he was coming here to Atlanta.  Jeff Ulbrich was from out there where they have earthquakes.  And, he had already taken the job with the Atlanta Falcons as our linebackers’ coach here.  I wonder how the Falcons feel about his lies that he had TURNED DOWN THE FALCONS ?

Jeff Ulbrich, you are a piece of shit.

I am so happy to have Roquan Smith here with Georgia.  He is a fine man and I respect him a great deal for all this.  Even more so after he refused to sign any LOI.  Of course, it does not hurt that he is now a part of the greatest defensive recruiting class ever here at UGA.

Now, if we can just beat more than 3 teams out of the latest 24 games who end up higher ranked than us for the season.

The 3 wins ?  We were unranked all 3.  Georgie tek 2009 # 13.  And, South Carolina and LSU 2013.

We need to beat the top teams when we are a top team.

We also need to cease losing to crappy football teams.  Like Georgie tek did losing to us 2009, and like LSU and South Carolina did losing to us 2013.

Or, as Todd Gurley II said in the season just ended that he is sick and tired of losing and being mediocre.  I’m ready personally for The Junkyard Dawgs’ Defense.  It will seem like Erk Russell is here again.

Stick around Jeremy Pruitt.  You certainly have got our attention with your recruiting prowess sir.

We have lost too many games around here, 29 in 7 years – unheard of in my day.  More than 4 a year the entire 2nd half of the Mark Richt era.

We lack role models to teach our youth to obey the rules and to be mature, which they are supposed to be, as I when I was in Russell Hall with my Scholarship roommate. He was not diligent.  College is fun, if you are making great grades and it is not fun if you came to party hearty.  Be a role model to the others around you.  I rubbed-off on many in Russell Hall who are my friends today in business and personally.  I am strong.

Be looked-up to not for being cool, but for being erudite.   Remember the reason why you get this $ 6 million from us is to win football games.  And, if you work on your education, you will have plenty of time to party later and win football games now.

There is nothing more important than winning football games, but you cannot do that if you do not obey the rules.  The # 1 rule is get your education WE invested this $ 6 million in for just this small group of lucky guys.  Me.
