Hey Georgia fans, just have a simple question for ya. Those listed above are our current Georgia offers. These are almost entirely because of our recent hire of Terry Joseph, formerly with the Vols. Since coming on with the Huskers, Joseph has been hitting the southeast.
Of those we've offered so far, who do you all think is the most likely to leave the southeast?
Rusty told the Nebraska board he's never seen Nebraska hit your state this hard, so this is new territory for us. I certainly don't expect us to grab a number of players this cycle, but one certainly wouldn't hurt.
If nothing else, I'd be happy to banter about Missouri. I've lived in Kansas City my entire life, and hate 'em with a passion. I hope you pummel 'em when you make your way to Columbia.
I would put the number at zero, of the ones offered. But keep trying, you might get lucky.
I know Kublanow is a UGA lean. The rest we will know more about when they workout on campus. We have a JR day this weekend. It is early to tell what will happen. Ask again after this weekend. Now about Missouri. Not sure what to expect from them. They do not seem to have must of a fan base in football. They do not even have a board on 247. They seem like an all pass Offense with no physical D. They will learn what physical is all about soon. They drew Bama out of the West to go with Texas AM plus they have UF, UT, UGA, and SCU to play with.
Once a Dawg always a Dawg...How sweet it is!
It is too early to tell which schools kids are looking at with offers still being handed out but I doubt if these guys leave the southeast
First welcome to Ga. I would say Vonn Bell, I know he is not on your list but I heard he had a good relationship with Joseph.
Y'all are thin at safety too correct?
Their fanbase.. Hah. They're quite a bunch. They love their team when they're doing well, and are definition apathetic when they're not doing much. They're that way for basketball, too. They were an insufferable bunch this year.
The only Missouri board I know of is tigerboard.com and they're stuck in 1992. It is the most historic looking board I have ever seen. Check it out some time.
As for their offense. What would you say if I told you they were a top ten rushing team? They averaged almost 250 rushing yards per game. I know it doesn't seem possible. A lot of that had to do with James Franklin, their dual threat quarterback. Beyond him, they had Josey as their main back. Their defense is in for a shock when they get to conference play. They're built to address the spread offenses of the Big 12. I think the SEC is going to put a beat down on 'em.
Completely understand. Everything I've read so far on these guys says they're going to stay in the southeast. Just wanted to hear from some people down that way as to whether that's the general feeling or not.
why are you guys hitting georgia so hard? is your recruiting in texas suffering due to your move to the big 10? i know it's been something how many offers you guys are throwing out in our state. as you said i don't see any of the guys you listed leaving the southeast, but it's a very good move hitting our state hard. you will in the future get a player or two. oklahoma state is an example of one team who has picked up a player our two from our state.
Johnny Dwight commits to Bama on 6/4/13 ranked the 44th DT in the nation by 247sports and 87 rating a 3 star. Now see the Bama bump.
thanks btw for the tigerboard info. i joined.. it will be interesting to read their stuff.
The increase in Georgia action stems from the hiring of Terry Joseph, formerly of Tennessee. The southeast is simply where he's got his contacts. Rather than send him into an area where he'd have to build from scratch, Nebraska adapted to him and his contacts.
I think it's too soon to judge any lapse in Texas recruiting. We pulled a 4*QB this past cycle in Tommy Armstrong.
The move that'll have more of an impact is Missouri's move. The draw of the SEC is more appealing than the draw of the Big 12. Recruiting against them simply became a bit harder with that move.
Not sure if you will pull any of these kids but I would love to see you guys stomp everyone in your conference. I've always liked the huskers style of football and I have always hated the big ten conference. UM and OSU are the main reasons. Got some relatives that are huge buckeye fans I hear from them all the time when Ohio state is beating up on that conference and boosting a great record before getting dismantled by an SEC school in there bowl game. I do like the Wisconsin style of football as well. Who is going to be your toughest game, Wisconsin or Ohio state? I got a feeling ohio state under UM, are fixing to be really really good, he is the one guy who can pull players from the southeast. good luck! Beat OSU!
Plus One for you Big Red.
My Grandfather is from Omaha. Lots of love for the cornhuskers in our household. Lots of hate and loathing for anything sooners.
Good luck against your new rivals. Thanks for the heads up on the Tigers board.
Big Red is welcome over here in my book. Good dude!!!! Will be cheering on you guys this season.
I don't know about any of them leaving the SE, but the first 2 definitely won't.
Toughest game... Hard to say. Wisconsin shellacked us last year, but much of that was self inflicted. Against Ohio State, we mounted one of the best comebacks I've had the pleasure of watching. However, it wouldn't have happened if Braxton Miller hadn't gone out of the game injured. No question. They're both going to prove some fierce games in the future. They're games you won't want to miss.
With Urban, Ohio State scares the hell out of me. I won't lie. His recruiting is enough reason to worry. But him and Braxton Miller together has some serious potential.
Wisconsin scares me a lot less, to be honest. They just had one hell of an exodus of their assistant coaches, having lost half a dozen. That much turnover and the loss of Wilson makes them a bit less intimidating this coming season. That said, they'll still have Ball. And he's still a monster.
Nonetheless, appreciate the well wishes!
