Georgia has always been a hot bed for D-1 College Football talent UGA has cashed in a lot of that talent over the years. I have been a UGA fan my whole life. I know of very few big time UGA OL recruits. The Stinchcomb's being the biggest. It is obvious to me that the championship teams get it done on the OL and DL. Why is it that UGA does not go after the OL recruits as hard as they do the DL guys? It obviously was the reason we did not make it to the NC game last year. Bama's OL was far more superior when it came to moving the line of scrimmage. It seems we are always getting in on the big name guys after less favored schools.
Friend doing work.
He is but I wonder if he has the support of the coaching staff as a whole. Seems like they'd rather go after skill position players. I'd love to beat Bama at their own game (Run it til they stop it)
OL is more about developing talent than recruiting.

Other than just a few elite guys in each class, it's all about development. The key is being able to identify, evaluate and sign talented OL prospects. The rest is up to the staff to develop 'em. Our staff knows that life in the SEC begins and ends in the trenches on both sides of the ball.
That had nothing to do with our offensive line. We ran for more yards than any other team they played. Our def line is what cost us that one but not cause of talent but depth. We werent deep enough and our def line was worn out. Our offense kept us in that game. Especially our offensive line. Plus they kept Murray off his back
Bingo. We got worn down not substituting guys were tired. The o line did better than I expected the whole team did. Sometimes I wonder if rotating guys in on the d line who didnt play much would have helped even if they weren't experienced enough just to get the guys some rest
Agree that we haven't been what we need to be along the OL if you take a longer view (say 5, 6 years). But it hasn't been recruiting-- it's been bad luck and bad development. Austin long had had everything imaginable happen to him. Benedict destroyed his knee. AJ Harmon flunked out. Bean Anderson didn't pan out. Kolton Houston got jobbed by the NCAA. All these guys were big time recruits and projected multi-year starters that we just didn't get much out of. Add to that CSS' horrible coaching, and that's a recipe for a bad OL.
Agree with folks that friend is getting it done. Love that guy.
Uhm our o line gave us a 3000+ yard passer and over 2200 yards rushing. I call that getting it done FOR THE MOST PART. There were some games that they could barley move the los but that happens to most teams at various points of the season I.e. alabam vs mizzou this last year . They had trouble moving the los for the most part of the game with what all can agree an "nfl" caliberline.

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.
we go after every position the same way. offensive lineman are more about development than other positions. GO DAWGS!
